From the High Tech Health article: “Scientists have found only wavelengths under 3000nm (near and mid infrared) to cause this damage to the eye. Shorter wavelengths, 780um to 1400nm (near infrared), are the most damaging. Wavelengths over 3000nm (far infrared) have never been shown damage the eye.”
@DefianceLulu there’s a lot out there in the market. Actually, I saw a video wherein an old man created his own RLT helmet. I will try to look it up or search it on YouTube. I forgot where I saw that.
@kimmy123 I do not think there will be any bad side effects. It’s just that it might confuse you if you do that. I think it’ll be better if you stick to one at first and when you think, see, feel that you achieve the result that you want then go ahead and try the other one. That is for me only, my opinion.
thank you for answering. I will try to incorporate RLT when I sleep. I will try it little by little until I get used to it. Any other tips that was not indicated?
Thank you all so much for your inputs. I am now well aware of it. <3
One dermatologist I saw recommended the capillus hair helmet. My other dermatologist recommended to get a used hair helmet from eBay since they are expensive. She also said that most of her patients did see improvement from the helmet, but that the improvement was pretty minor.
I agree with you @memyselfandi using NIRL bulbs might not be good for the long run. However, using the proper device for your face might help you better and give you long and better results.
The wavelength infrared puts out is longer than the wavelength of red light, which allows infrared to penetrate more deeply into the body. Thus, the reason infrared provides some similar, but some completely different benefits than red light. Red light is visible and is most effective for use on the surface of the skin. Red light occupies the “long end” of the visible spectrum with wavelengths of 630nm-700nm. Infrared light is invisible and is effective for use on the surface of the skin as well as penetration of about 1.5 inches into the body. Infrared sits right next to red light on the electromagnetic spectrum at 800nm to 1millimeter.October 2, 2020 at 5:46 pm in reply to: Does Rubylux near-infrared bulb emit UV radiation.. #803
@misspurple, I guess because RLT emits bright red lights that if you are sensitive to the lights might affect your eyes. Though if you use it with the distance it is required, I guess a reg sunglasses will do. Correct me if I am wrong.
Little red, there’s a lot out there you may want to try but I am using a new brand called RubyLux.
Is it not disturbing to use it during night time?
Same here, though not everyone is the same. You should follow precautions as well. I have never experienced bad side effects till now.
