The term Red Light Therapy (RLT) is used to describe a non-invasive, pain-free treatment using Red and Near-Infrared Light wavelengths. These wavelengths are specifically optimized for beneficial results. RLT is best received on bare skin and therefore the treatment is meant to be done naked.

No, it does not hurt. It is warm and soothing.

Yes, it is safe. This doesn’t mean you should stare at the bright lights. While doing so won’t cause permanent damage, it may irritate, or you will see transient spots. Your eyes don’t need to be open to attain the benefits of RLT.

No, Deeply Vital Medical does not accept insurance of any kind to pay for services, nor is it covered by insurance. If needed, we are happy to provide a superbill for your out-of-network benefits for the client to handle with their own insurance company.

To use FSA/HSA as payment, either directly by your FSA/HSA debit or credit card or via receipt reimbursement.
FSA/HSA should be able to be used for Red Light Therapy, consultations, or to purchase Dr. Weber's homemade cosmetics, supplements, and SPF sold in our office.

To feel relaxed, warm, and energized for your day, workout, physical therapy session, or wherever the day takes you. Most sleep better and have less pain after their whole-body Light Session.

As more studies are needed, it is best to avoid using the lights in anyone with known active cancer- unless OK’d by their Oncologist- it is possible to cover the area where the cancer is present, as the light works where it hits the skin. Those with epilepsy or who have a pacemaker should not Red Light, or if you are pregnant, you should not Red Light unless OK'd by your OB/GYN, and it is also possible to cover your abdomen/pelvis to avoid light exposure.

Those with a recent burn, 24-48 hours, should avoid Red Light.

Not a contraindication, but please let us know if you suffer from any hyperpigmentation or melasma.

Some medications may increase sensitivity to light. This could cause irritation to the skin or lead to a rash when using Red Light. While it is unlikely that Red Light Therapy will meaningfully affect those using photosensitizing medications, it is best to check if a medicine you are taking/using can increase your sensitivity to light and discuss it with Dr. Weber. Best to avoid it 48 hours prior to treatment.

Please note that it will be up to the client to be aware of their own health. This is not at the discretion of Deeply Vital Medical.

Our lights emit 6 different highly-studied wavelengths.

RED LED: 630nm, 660nm

Our panels are capable of using 0-100% Red Light LEDs & 0-100% Near-Infrared LEDs. Blue Light can be turned off.

In short, no, you can not get too much Red Light Therapy. According to Michael Hamblin⁠—associate professor at Harvard Medical School and a noted expert on Red Light Therapy⁠—“You could use RLT for 24 hours a day and wouldn’t damage the skin. It’s almost impossible to cause any harm.”

However, while Red Light and Near-Infrared Light are considered very safe, temporary tightness or redness or itching is possible if you have sensitive skin. This can be alleviated by reducing the treatment time or moving the panels further away from the table. You’ll have to test out the optimal time for your body and adjust as you go along. But overall, Red Light Therapy is very safe.

This depends on many things, including your age and the state of your skin, how much body-surface area you have, and the result you are looking for. Everybody responds differently. Generally, the best results are obtained over 6 to 8 weeks with regular Sessions. Most notice a difference after a Session or two.
