What are the risks of LED Red Light Therapy?
I'm looking into red light therapy - do you know if the same LED dangers exist in RLT devices?
Though we were unable to provide direct expertise in red light therapy, we are happy to confirm that the majority of risks associated with LED lighting products can be associated with overexposure to blue light during evening hours. Excess blue light exposure during these periods can disrupt the circadian rhythm, where LED lighting with high flicker rates can also cause eye fatigue and headaches.
While we generally recommend speaking to a red light therapy professional to better understand your risks, we also have a terrific blog post on our website regarding the potential risks of LED lighting which I hope you find valuable.
