Red Lab, one of the company’s highlighting the benefits of red light therapy in South Africa, has launched a range of at-home red light solutions to help people with muscle pains, fungal infections, eczema, sleep disorders, psoriasis and emotional well-being, amongst other ailments.
The range of Red Lab products offer families and athletes the chance to own and apply these therapies from the comfort of their homes, on their own terms.
Amongst the range is three home-based devices: the Big Bank, Flex Pad, and the Handheld Unit. The Big Bank (R14,999) is a 0.91m tall light bar and thus covers half the size of the average human. For this reason, full-body benefits can be achieved in a very short amount of time.
The Flex Pad (R6,999) is a portable, rechargeable neoprene pad, embedded with 60 NIR and Red Light LEDs. The handy Velcro straps allow you to strap the fully charged device to any part of the body requiring treatment, allowing a recommended time of 20 minutes per treatment area. Unlike a heating pad, NIR and Red Light Therapy works below the skin’s surface, reaching deep into tissues, stimulating and healing cells and increasing circulation to target pain at the source.
Finally, the Handheld Unit (R2,999) is a portable, rechargeable device consisting of 30 LEDS with 3 settings: Red Light, NIR & Blue Light (great for acne); Red Light & Blue Light and Red Light & NIR. Once fully charged, the device can be targeted (held 5cm away) at any area of the body requiring treatment. Several treatment areas can be covered, to a maximum of 60 minutes per 24 hour period. This is the ideal entry-level device for those looking for a cost-effective solution with broad-spectrum results including anti-aging, acne treatment, pain relief, scar and wound healing, and the treatment of muscle spasms or injury.
Red Lab also has the Red Lab Studio in Claremont, Cape Town, which can be visited for on-site treatments, as well as retailing the range of portable devices for at-home use.
