Treatment Guidelines for Red Light Therapy
First, for detailed questions, please head over to our support page. You'll find a list of FAQs that you should find helpful. Also, if you have any questions on how to set up your Joovv, check out this page.
Having said that, here are 3 of the most common questions we receive regarding the use of red light therapy.
How long should I use the Joovv?
Regardless of the model you purchased, all Joovvs deliver medical-grade power—also called irradiance—of red and near infrared light. For optimal results, we recommend positioning your Joovv approximately 6 inches from the area on your body you intend to treat. The recommended default treatment time is 10 minutes per area, which will result in a clinically-relevant dose of energy.
Many clinical studies have shown this combination of distance and irradiance is effective for producing health benefits in both superficial and deep tissues.
It’s important to be consistent with your light therapy treatments. That’s why we recommend using your Joovv every day, or at least 5 times per week. For additional health benefits, including pain relief from aches and strains, up to 3 treatments per day can be helpful.
How soon can I expect results from the Joovv?
The amount of time required to see improvements depends on each person’s individual health challenges. Because the cellular health benefits have been thoroughly proven across hundreds of clinical studies, it's important to understand that your body is benefiting from the therapy. There are many factors that affect how quickly you may experience improvements in your symptoms. Some people will see benefits like reduced inflammation, pain relief, and wound healing within a matter of days. But, overall improvements in health or skin-related benefits can take 8-12 weeks of consistent use to see results. By using your Joovv on a daily basis, you can maximize the rate of healing within your body.
Are there any side effects to using a Joovv?
Dr. Michael Hamblin, who serves on our scientific advisory board, has participated in over 300 published studies in the field of photobiomodulation. His work, as well as many others in the field, have documented virtually no side effects when using red and infrared light therapy within the optimal range of wavelengths. However, the human body is complex. So, if you're concerned about potential side effects, please consult with your physician or healthcare provider.
