Hollywood Stars and Harvard Researchers Agree: Light Therapy Is Great For Your Skin!


If skincare had a Hollywood Walk of Fame, Shani Darden would have her own star (and the star’s complexion would be flawless).

The A-List esthetician works with celebrities like Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen, Emily Ratajkowski, and January Jones, and she’s built a huge social media following dishing out her expert skin advice.

So of course she loves her Joovv:

Light therapy—and the Joovv especially—have become go-tos for a wide range of skin needs at the world’s top salons and spas, and among leading estheticians like Shani Darden and her celebrity clients.

Carole Radziwill of NYC Housewives fame also loves her Joovv:

But it’s not just Hollywood singing the praises of light therapy, and it’s certainly not just another trend. Red and near infrared (NIR) light therapy is safe, natural, and backed by a wealth of clinical research showing a wide range of skin benefits.

Scientists from Harvard and MIT are Excited About Light Therapy Too

In 2013, dermatologists and clinical researchers from Harvard and MIT published a peer-reviewed meta analysis in the journal Seminars in Cutaneous Medicine and Surgery.[1] They spoke to several skin benefits of light therapy:

  • Counteracts signs of aging
  • Boosts collagen production
  • “Beneficial effects on wrinkles, acne scars, and healing of burns”
  • “Can reduce UV damage both as a treatment and as a prophylactic measure”
  • Reduces inflammation and cellular necrosis

This is a just a small sampling of the robust body of scientific literature on red and NIR light therapy for skin.

Research Shows Light Therapy Improves Complexion and Fights Aging

In 2014, a team of researchers conducted a controlled trial and published their findings about light therapy’s anti-aging effects in the journal Photomedicine and Laser Surgery.[2] The doctors offered these conclusions:

  • Better complexion: “The treated subjects experienced significantly improved skin complexion and skin feeling.”
  • Skin rejuvenation and collagen boost: Light therapy “demonstrated efficacy and safety for skin rejuvenation and intradermal collagen increase when compared with controls.”
  • Photographic proof: “The blinded clinical evaluation of photographs confirmed significant improvement in the intervention groups compared with the control.”

Red Light Therapy is Safe, Natural, and Noninvasive

Red light works on the front lines of skincare: your skin cells. The mitochondria in your cells absorb and process red and NIR light and convert it into energy that powers cell growth and repair.[3] No chemicals or cuts, just rejuvenating red light. The Harvard and MIT researchers cited above praised light therapy’s “noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects.”

Convenient Light Therapy in Your Home

It’s too difficult and expensive for most people to go to spas and clinics to reap the benefits of light therapy. That’s why we created an affordable, safe, natural, and effective in-home light therapy device. The Joovv is the world’s leading personal light therapy device, providing short treatment times in the comfort and privacy of your home.
