Red Light Therapy (aka photobiomodulation) is the science of light and its impact on our biology.
All the benefits of Red Light Therapy comes from the following process:

1. The Right Light Spectrum

The red (660nm) and near-infrared  (850nm) spectrum are scientifically proven to excite the key enzyme Cytochrome (CCO) and the mitochondria of the cell.

2. Boost In Cellular Energy

Once Cytochrome is saturated with the 660nm and 850nm spectrum, the inhibitory Nitric Oxide is reduced and Oxygen is increased. This leaves place fro the Mitochondria to produce more Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy the cells use.

3. Anti-Inflammatory Properties

The now oxygen-rich blood travels through the brain and body and reduces overall inflammation. Cellular functions are optimized which helps the optimal functioning of our biochemistry.

The 630nm wavelength is ideal for targeting all manner of skin concerns.

    In one study, the 630nm wavelength was combined with other beauty treatments such as microneedling to create a statistically significant improvement in photodamage, fine lines and sagging.
  • HAIR REGROWTH Red light therapy containing the 630nm wavelength has been proven to be a safe and effective method of stimulating hair growth in both men and women.
    The 630nm wavelength has also been shown to help reduce inflammation and breakouts.

Penetrating just a little deeper than the 630nm wavelength, the 660nm reaches into the entire range of the skin tissue to promote healing and regeneration.

    The 660nm wavelength teamed with the 830nm near-infrared wavelength has been proven to delay the development of fatigue in the muscles, and enhance skeletal muscle performance. (Athletes, take note.)

  • REDUCED INFLAMMATION: In a study investigating the effects of red light therapy on pleurisy, the 660nm wavelength was found to induce an anti-inflammatory effect.

  • IMPROVED BONE HEALING Improved bone healing: The 660nm wavelength encourages resorption and formation in the bone cells around the location where repair is needed, without causing any change to the bone structure.

    In one study, the 660 nm wavelength was found to reduce both inflammation and swelling by reducing the number of inflammatory cells which lead to the formation of swelling.

    A study investigating sciatic nerve pain in rats found that the 660 nm wavelength significantly helped to reduce pain.

    The 660 nm wavelength has been proven to increase the formation of new blood vessels and enhance collagen deposition to help in the healing of wound

With an ability to extend through the skull into the brain, the 810nm wavelength offers a unique array of neurological benefits. Many forward-thinking scientists are of the belief that light therapy for brain disorders will become a prominent medical treatment in the near future. Expect to reap the following benefits from the 810nm wavelength:

  • Improved healing and recovery:
    A study of soccer players showed that the 810nm wavelength applied before activity enhanced muscular performance and post-exercise recovery.

  • Accelerated wound healing: 810nm wavelengths have been shown to help expedite wound healing, helping the tissue to granulate more rapidly.

  • Improved recovery from stroke in certain patients: One study conducted among stroke patients showed that wavelengths of 810nm provided neuroprotective benefits and improved recovery among sufferers of moderate to severe strokes. Five days after the stroke, there was significant improvement among those who had been treated with the 810nm light therapy, compared to those who hadn’t. Ninety days post-stroke, 70% of the treated patients had a successful outcome, compared with only 51% of the control group.

  • Improved recovery from traumatic brain injury: 810nm has been proven in animal models to be particularly effective in fostering recovery from traumatic brain injuries, and reducing long-term neurological damage.

  • Improvement in psychiatric disorders: Prescription drugs for psychiatric conditions have long been recognized as having a limited ability to assist individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions. What’s more, pharmacotherapeutic medication often carries a host of unwanted side effects, while near-infrared light therapy doesn’t. 810nm wavelengths applied to the forehead have been shown to assist patients suffering from major depression and anxiety.

  • Hair growth:
    Studies have shown the 810nm wavelength can encourage significant hair growth in patients with androgenetic alopecia.

The 830nm wavelength is not as readily absorbed by the body, therefore it is able to penetrate deeper through skin and tissue and into the bone. A greater quantity of photons are delivered into the tissue with the 830nm wavelength. 

  • Accelerated healing and reduced infection:
    Like the 810nm wavelength, 830nm accelerates healing in wounds of different severity and helps to ward off infection.

  • Improved aesthetic outcomes following plastic surgery: Swift exposure to 830nm wavelengths after aesthetic surgery hastens recovery, reduces downtime and enhances the results of surgery by reducing swelling, infection, bruising and pain, therefore leading to greater patient satisfaction.

  • Increased endorphins: 830nm wavelengths increases the release of endorphins. Endorphins are peptides which promote feelings of wellness.

  • Improved bone repair and growth:
    An animal study demonstrated that 830nm light therapy improved bone repair by stimulating new bone growth.

  • Improvement in psychiatric disorders:
    Prescription drugs for psychiatric conditions have long been recognized as having a limited ability to assist individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions. What’s more, pharmacotherapeutic medication often carries a host of unwanted side effects, while near-infrared light therapy doesn’t. 810nm wavelengths applied to the forehead have been shown to assist patients suffering from major depression and anxiety.

  • Faster return-to-play after injury:
    The ability to return-to-play as swiftly as possible after injury or trauma is a key concern for any amateur or professional athlete. 830nm LED light therapy has been proven to significantly and safely reduce the wait time before injured athletes can return to play.

In many cases, the 850nm amplifies the benefits provided by the 810nm and 830nm wavelengths. This wavelength has a range of therapeutic applications such as:

  • Anti-inflammatory benefits:
    850nm wavelengths can help to reduce joint and muscle pain and diminish general inflammation in the body.

  • Enhanced muscle recovery:
    A study observed the use of 850nm wavelengths on athletes, and found that usage of the near-infrared light increased muscle mass after training, and decreased inflammation and oxidative stress in muscle biopsies.

  • Healing of wounds in the skin:
    Lesions in the skin heal faster when exposed to 850nm wavelength light therapy.

  • Reduction of lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation:
    850nm can support the production of collagen, assisting with plumper, more radiant-looking skin, and a more uniform texture.

  • Orthodontics and tooth alignment:
    The use of the 850nm wavelength can foster the speedy realignment of teeth for patients undergoing orthodontics.

We’ve Got You Covered

Red and near infrared (NIR) light are both natural types of light which come from the sun and have been clinically proven to enhance cellular function. The main differences are that red light at 660nm only penetrates the body up to a depth of about 5-10mm and may contribute greatly to improved skin health and collagen production.

Near infrared light at 850nm is invisible to the human eye and penetrates deeper into the body, between 50mm and 75mm, providing energetic and anti-inflammatory benefits at these levels which has been shown to increase muscle recovery and reduce joint pain, amongst many other benefits.

It's pretty simple actually. It helps your cells do their jobs better! It does this by knocking out stuck nitric oxide in the mitochondria of the cell so oxygen can get back in there and boom, you’ve got increased ATP production = more energy for the cell to do it’s job.

We highly recommend using your Hive for ten minute sessions about 7.5cm (3 inches) away from your target area. See our Treatment Guidelines.

Eye protection is not essential; however, we recommend not staring directly into the LED panel. When utilizing your Vellgus Red Light Device for a face session you should ideally close your eyes for maximum comfort and relaxation.

These wavelengths (660nm & 850nm) have been shown in multiple studies to be beneficial for the eyes and are currently being studied for treatment of certain eye diseases. However, due to the level of brightness it’s a good idea to wear darkened safety glasses, turn on the light away from you, and let your eyes adjust before shining on your face / eyes.

Red light therapy is a safe and non-invasive treatment for several different ailments. The light panels themselves do not get particularly warm, but your skin may begin to feel warm as your treatment session progresses. This is due to the increased circulation to the area that is exposed to the light. Most people find red light therapy to be comfortable and relaxing.

When just starting out, you will want to start slow with just 2 minutes per area per day. You can add 1 minute per session as long as you’re feeling good, working to a max of 10-15 minute sessions. This gives your body time to adapt to the light.
If you’re working on multiple body areas, you can do a 10 minute session for area number 1 and then move the panel to another area for a 2nd 10 minute session. You can do multiple body areas per day, but you want to avoid doing more than 15 minutes for a specific area.

Ideally, you’ll be 6-12 inches away for 10 minutes per area. If you want to be 12-18 inches away, you’ll add 5 minutes to the session for a total of 15 minutes. And for 18-24, a total of 20 minutes. This is because energy is lost over distance so the further away you are, the more session time will be needed to achieve the same amount of power.

Drink some water! Hydration is important in general, but once you expose your body tissues and their cells to the red light, their energy levels will go up significantly. Just like when you hit the gym for a workout, your cells need to stay hydrated when they are “working out” too. Hydrating after a session gives your cells all the fuel they need, as the energizing effects of red light do not diminish the moment you step away from your light panel.

You can consider your red light therapy sessions to be effective when you begin to notice an improvement in any of the symptoms you are treating, such as acne, chronic pain, or the texture of scars. Other ways you can tell that your time in front of the light panel is making a difference is that your energy levels may seem higher, or your quality of sleep may improve. All these things are definite signs that your light therapy is paying off. Light therapy begins on a cellular level, creating changes under the surface that later make a difference on the outside.

Near infrared light is invisible to the naked eye. All our devices come with the standard layout of red 660nm light and near infrared 850nm light. If your red light LEDs are working, your near infrared LEDs should be as well. All devices can be operated with red and NIR (near infrared) independently, with the exception of the Vellgus Red Light Mini.
One way to test your devices is to turn off your red light, but leave NIR light running. You should see a very faint illumination of the NIR LEDs.

The most optimal results are achieved through having your bare skin absorbing the light, in the specifically chosen target area.
Clothes block the light waves from directly penetrating the skin, decreasing the effectiveness of the light. Having minimal clothing on, or none, allows the red light waves to cover the maximum amount of surface area.

It’s best to have clean, dry skin. Lotions, creams, makeup will reflect some of the light, decreasing its effectiveness.

There is no harm to wearing contact lenses during your light therapy session, as you will likely have your eyes closed while you relax and enjoy the light panel. Some users have reported experiencing dry eyes while wearing their contact lenses during their light panel sessions. Therefore, it is ultimately your choice on whether you’d like to keep your contacts in or not.

Seasonal depression is a condition that many individuals struggle with, especially in northern regions where wintertime means shorter, darker days for several months of the year. Our light panels produce light waves that hold similar properties to that of natural sunlight. Science and years of research are telling us that individuals are seeing improvement in the symptoms of their seasonal depression after just one session.

Any one of our panels would help to promote a better night’s rest overall. Exposure to any one of our red devices will help your body’s circadian rhythm shift into a healthier sleep schedule. Light will also help to treat any other causes of poor night’s sleep such as inflammation in the body causing pain and discomfort. When used first thing in the morning, light will help suppress melatonin and increase serotonin.

There are so many reasons why red light therapy is so beneficial for an individual who works out regularly. The increase in blood flow that red light promotes will allow your muscles to maintain optimal oxygen levels while you push them to become stronger. Not only will this enhance your ability to work out, but also help you recover from a workout faster than you ever have. Because light reduces inflammation, healing and recovery time will be decreased.

If you are taking any photosensitizing medication ensure you seek medical advice before using Vellgus Red Light. Such medications include Tetracycline, Digoxin and Retin A. Thousands of clinical trials have shown light therapy to be safe and effective, however it is always recommended to consult your health care provider of doctor before using it.

Peer reviewed clinical trials have shown red light therapy to be safe and beneficial. However, if you would like your children to experience red light therapy we always recommend consulting with your healthcare professional first.

After just a few sessions you may experience reduced swelling, stiffness and clearer skin. After one session you may feel a nice warmth around the area you have used your device on. Consistent use over time will get the best results.
Remember the way it works is by helping your cells do their job better, so it's still up to your cells to do the work once they've gotten the boost from the any Vellgus Red Light device. So if you want to boost results, eat well, stay hydrated, and make sure to relieve stress as much as possible.

If you are following the guidelines provided with your panel, such as positioning yourself at the correct distance away and spending the right amount of time in front of your panel, you should be getting just the right amount of light exposure. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate results. It can take a few weeks to begin to see the profound effects that red light has on your body. It begins in the cells, remember. Your cells need time to work with all the new energy you are giving them and have a noticeable positive impact on your body.

Yes. If you do too much the positive effects go away because you are actually adding more stress to the cells. Just stick to less than 15 mins per area per day and you’ll be on the safe side. More than that and you'll just be undoing the positive effects anyways.
It’s worth noting that red light therapy is very safe and there are no known negative side effects after over 5,000 clinical studies.

    Great For Skin

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Eczema is something my family and I endure and this Red Light is ideal. It is easy to use and works effectively without the use of other things such as medicated creams which over time damage skin. When making this purchase I did research the products and this one was the one that had the best rating based on my research. I have also used it for sunburns, inflammation, acne, and healing wounds. This light is comparable to Joovy which costs way more.

    Rated 5 out of 5

    2 weeks of having this product. The reason why I purchased was to help with back acne scarring and the other benefits secondary. Such as body pains.

    Quality: the product feels well made and the fan works really well, doesn’t over heat at all and the most I’ve used it was for 30 minutes at a time.

    Size: sizing wise it’s on the smaller size. Would work great for most situations, but for myself. It doesn’t cover most of my back even sitting 9 inches away ( which is recommended)

    Effectiveness: hard to tell after 2 weeks and not being consistent.

    I am 64 and have a lot of aches and pains. It really does help.


    Lets the healing begin!

    Rated 5 out of 5

    Having used the more expensive Joovv alternative, I can say the Vellgus Red Light Therapy Device performs exactly the same and provides pain relief to my joints and muscles, has improved my REM and Deep sleep numbers, and helped my fiance’s skin look the best it ever has. I highly recommend this device for all of the purported benefits and without a doubt if you are considering a pricier option!
