Suntanz of Tulsa was the first in Tulsa to offer florescent red light therapy. This technology uses visible infrared rays to stimulate the fibroblast cells which causes your skin to increase production of collagen and elastin - the proteins responsible for smooth, supple skin. Your skin layers have a high content of blood and water which easily absorb red light.
Initially you will notice fine lines and blemishes start to diminish, your skin will have a much smoother feeling and pigmentation of the skin will start to even out.
Over time improved oxygenation and detoxification of the skin is achieved as the vascular walls of the skin's small blood vessels are strengthened, followed by improved natural repair and creation of healthy skin. This will help restore and firm up tired looking skin, decrease fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, age spots, cellulite, scarring, minimize the size of facial pores, and all over improvement of the skin's underlying supportive structure - making you look and feel years younger!
Red Light Therapy will also help damaged skin heal up to 200% faster, help relieve joint pain, and is an effective treatment for psoriasis and eczema.
"The application of RLT and ELT provides a safe, non-ablative, non-thermal, atraumatic photobiomodulation treatment of skin tissue with high patient satisfaction rates. RLT and ELT can extend the spectrum of anti-aging treatment options available to patients looking for mild and pleasant light-only skin rejuvenation."

"Red light therapy is generally considered safe."
"Red light therapy (RLT) is a treatment that may help skin, muscle tissue, and other parts of your body heal. It exposes you to low levels of red or near-infrared light. Infrared light is a type of energy your eyes can’t see, but your body can feel as heat."
"With red light therapy, you expose your skin to a lamp, device, or laser with a red light. A part of your cells called mitochondria, sometimes called the “power generators” of your cells, soak it up and make more energy. Some experts think this helps cells repair themselves and become healthier. This spurs healing in skin and muscle tissue. Red light therapy uses very low levels of heat and doesn’t hurt or burn the skin."
