Kala Red Light

How Does Red Light Therapy Work?

Red Light Therapy (RLT) is an innovative, non-invasive procedure that emits red and near-infrared (NIR) light to target a user's skin and cellular structure. Devices like the Kala Red Light employ LEDs to project red and NIR light wavelengths during sessions. These wavelengths are akin to the beneficial aspects of natural sunlight but devoid of harmful UV rays or excessive heat. Scientific research has identified numerous therapeutic benefits associated with RLT.

What Advantages Can I Anticipate from the Treatment?

Our product's emitted wavelengths offer cellular advantages substantiated by multiple clinical investigations, accessible under the 'benefits' section. The energy from red and NIR light augments cellular operations. However, individual responses to photobiomodulation may vary. It's challenging to predetermine the rate and nature of results, as cells prioritize specific repair and healing processes. Notable positive outcomes reported by our clientele using the Kala Light include enhanced skin health, sleep quality, pain relief in muscles and joints, inflammation reduction, improved libido, expedited recovery, mood elevation, and numerous others.

What's the Underlying Science of Red Light Therapy?

Supported by over 5,000 clinical studies, RLT has emerged as an efficacious remedy for various physiological conditions. Dive into our "Learn" section for a plethora of clinical studies on prevalent conditions. Every human has trillions of cells, each requiring energy for optimal functioning and maintaining equilibrium. All life forms harness energy from sources like food, water, and oxygen, primarily through cellular respiration. This process produces adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body's energy currency. Enhancing ATP synthesis efficiency bolsters overall well-being.

RLT enhances cellular respiration by impacting mitochondria, our cellular power generators. It can proliferate mitochondria and amplify their cellular activity. By influencing the electrons within the mitochondria, RLT optimizes ATP synthesis and counters nitric oxide (NO) — an impediment to ATP production. Photons from red and NIR light expedite electron activity, facilitating efficient ATP synthesis, crucial for cellular and overall bodily functions.

Why Aren't All Kala Device Lights Red?

Kala leverages dual wavelengths: Red and NIR. While red LEDs (660nm) cater to surface skin therapy, the unseen NIR wavelengths (850nm) penetrate deeper, nurturing inner cellular functions.

Do LEDs Enhance the Experience?

Absolutely! LEDs are paramount in ensuring precise wavelength and light direction in therapy, delivering potent intensity with negligible heat. They're unparalleled in efficacy for light therapy applications. Our devices, equipped with 5W LEDs, outshine the typical 3W LEDs in performance and proven effectiveness.

Why Do Fans Persist Post-treatment?

Post-treatment, the fans in Kala devices function for an additional 5-10 minutes. This post-operational phase aids in cooling the device, ensuring it remains within its ideal temperature range.

Is the Procedure Safe?

Absolutely. All our devices undergo rigorous third-party testing to confirm their safety and reliability. However, we always advise consulting with a healthcare professional before commencing any light therapy.

Does the Device Emit Heat?

Specifically, the Pro and Elite devices emit a gentle, calming warmth. They maintain a cool exterior, thanks to the built-in cooling fan, ensuring they don't overheat.

Recommended Usage Frequency?

For detailed guidelines, please refer to the "treatment guidelines" section available in our footer.

Is Protective Eyewear Required?

It's not mandatory. Some users might opt for goggles, but numerous studies highlight RLT's potential eye health benefits. Direct exposure, especially for those sensitive to light, isn't recommended. If in doubt, consulting with a medical professional is wise.
