Red light therapy was once only available for $100 or more per session in clinical settings. Achieving the desired results often meant having two or three sessions per week. In-home red light devices save time and money. The Joovv Light Panel and the Joovv Light Mini were designed with clinical potency in mind. The devices are conveniently used in home settings but feature enough power to provide results by using the lights for four to five minutes daily.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy
The wavelength of visible light spans the spectrum from 400 to 700 billionths of a meter or 400 to 700 nanometers. Red light at wavelengths of 630 nm and up penetrate skin at depths of up to eight to 10 millimeters. Once absorbed, the body converts the light into cellular energy, which stimulates various metabolic processes. Collagen and elastin production increases and cellular mitochondria release more energy in the form of ATP, which better equips cells to function at optimal levels. Joovv lights emit red light on 660 nm and 850 nm wavelengths. LED lights are used, as the bulbs emit light at the desired wavelength but generate little to no heat. LEDs are also eco-friendly compared to fluorescent or incandescent bulbs. Red light therapy has the potential to:
- Repair sun damage
- Even out skin tones
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines
- Heal acne and other types of blemishes
- Accelerate wound healing
- Reduce inflammation and pain
Joovv Light Therapy Panel
Many consumer-friendly red light therapy devices are small in size. Thus, they are only capable of treating small areas of the body at one time. On the other hand, the rectangular Joovv panel spans an area of approximately 4 feet x 2.5 feet, which enables you to receive treatment over larger body areas simultaneously. The panels are equipped with five arrays of 150 LEDs emitting light at your choice of 660 nm wavelength, 850 nm wavelength or in a combination of 660 and 850 nm wavelengths. Each panel is constructed using sturdy polyethylene and comes equipped with rear fans designed to keep each array cool and extends the lifespan of the bulbs.
The panel is easily hung from any door using the provided hardware, which includes an adjustable pulley device that allows you to set the panel at the right height. The device is also equipped with a 10-foot, three-prong power cord. Along with the unit, you get a convenient programmable timer and protective eye goggles. The Joovv Light Therapy Panel comes with a 60-day free trial and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The user-friendly red light system merely requires hanging the panel, plugging the power cord into the nearest wall socket and turning the switch to the on position. However, the skin to be treated must be cleansed before therapy, which ensures adequate absorption of the light.
Joovv Light Mini
Similar to the Joovv Panel, the Mini is available in a 660 nm wavelength, 850 nm wavelength lights or a combination of both LED wavelengths. Instead of the five region array, the device features two lit regions having a total of 60 LED lights. Also like the full-sized panel, the Mini comes with custom door hook, an adjustable pulley system, programmable timer, the 10-foot power cord and protective eye goggles. The Joovv Light Mini is also backed by the same 60-day free trial and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Positive results from the Joovv Light Therapy Panel or the Joovv Light Mini may take three to six weeks. However, since there are no chemicals involved in the treatment, the device is safe for all skin types.
