Improve Your Skin Faster With Yellow Light

Yellow (or amber) light therapy is a drug free alternative for helping with skin issues, including but not limited to: redness, irritation, rosacea, and UV radiation damage. TrueLight is a patent pending light therapy solution offering yellow light therapy to help with skin issues.

Yellow light therapy is also sometimes referred to as amber light therapy. It encompasses the range of wavelengths from 570nm to 620nm.  It has a shallow skin penetration and can be effective for skin issues involving redness, such as spider veins or rosacea. Though it is not typically used for tissue healing or collagen/elastin production, yellow light does excel in the assistance of aiding problems such as sun damage. It is often considered to be an ideal therapy solution for sensitive skin with calming and soothing benefits.

Key Benefits:

  •  Drug free alternative for skin redness and flushing
  •  Skin irritation
  •  Reduces rosacea
  •  UV radiation damage
  •  Reducing the appearance of tiny blood vessels on the nose/face
  •  Helps to flush waste from the skin
  •  Boosts lymphatic flow
  •  Increases cellular growth

It is believed that the reason yellow light therapy effectively reduces the symptoms of redness among many rosacea sufferers is that the blood vessels can reduce in size following treatment. As a result, they and their red color become less visible. This action makes LED yellow light therapy sessions extremely safe and appropriate for all skin types, including those that are sensitive and reactive.

Yellow light therapy also stimulates the production of red blood cells, which play a vital role in skin healing and skin cell rejuvenation. They also help to give the look of being healthier, overall.  Because yellow light can penetrate the skin to a shallow depth, the cells exposed to the light are primarily those that are visible. The greatest impact on the skin occurs where it can actually be seen as it absorbs that energy and uses it as a part of a natural healing process, clearing rosacea symptoms without causing irritation or any other unwanted side effects.

But it’s not just about the exposure to yellow light. It’s also how the light is delivered. It has been discovered that when LED lights are pulsed, body tissue can heal more rapidly.  When it is given a continuous burst, it sedates the cell and relieves the pain. When a single-frequency pulsed light hits the cell, it stimulates the cell to start producing more protein than it normally does.  As a result, the cell heals faster. Even when the LED light source is taken away, the cell continues its healing. As opposed to the pulsating light that is best for healing, a continuous, steady light beam can remove/dull pain, reduce inflammation and allows muscle tissue to relax.

Now there’s a new, unique light therapy device for deeper healing and faster recovery.

Based on industry research, we created TrueLight, a patent-pending light therapy device designed for personal at-home use. It combines yellow/amber wavelengths,  along with two red wavelengths and one near infrared wavelength to promote deep healing and recovery in the skin and body.   When these wavelengths are combined they may enhance blood circulation, reduce wrinkles & fine lines, increase muscle recovery, decrease pain, and reduce skin redness/irritation.

Key difference: With TrueLight, you can also choose between pulsating light for healing or constant light for pain relief. In total, the device has 6 different modes that encourage deeper healing and recovery. No other product on the market currently includes this combination of four wavelengths plus steady and pulsating modes.

For optimal cellular health, including deep tissue, we suggest 20-minute sessions with the TrueLight Energy Square for each treatment area, applied two or more times per week.  Remember that these lights are powerful, you do not need to use them for prolonged periods of time.  The effects are cumulative and will get better over time, which means that you may eventually be able to use the light for less time in order to accomplish the same goals.

Junk Light, Disrupted Sleep, and Your Health

Exposure melatonin disrupting junk light can have have effects on many aspects of your health

Sleep cycle disruption

Junk light exposure when traveling can disrupt your circadian rhythm. Long-term exposure to light at night which accompanies shift work is listed as a probable carcinogen by the World Health Organization. Light at night has shown to be highly associated with significantly the risk of hormone specific such as cancers of the breast and prostate.

Headaches/Vision

The flickering wavelength of light associated with LEDs and compact fluorescent lights emit blue light that inhibits melatonin production but also create a unique glare that impacts your retina causing eye strain, headaches, and physical and mental fatigue.

Weight Gain

Red light and darkness move leptin and ghrelin into patterns that are (context dependent) associated with less hunger, while blue light does the opposite and can move both into patterns associated with more hunger.

Anxiety/Depression & Depression

Increase in cortisol, the stress hormone, due to circadian disruption. Memory recall is impaired with consistent sleep deprivation and may leave you distracted and not performing your absolute best.

The Importance of Melanopsin Cells

The Key to Better Sleep

detects blue light

The melanopsin cells detect blue light it tells your brain that it is “daytime” and less melatonin is produced.

sending signals to your brain

The signals to your brain to alert brightness and for the brain to increase or suppress the sleep hormone, melatonin.

Light Source

Melanopsin cells can’t differentiate the blue light that occurs naturally form the sun from the junk light emitted from your computer monitor.

Harness Your Biology to Fight Junk Light

Your body requires some blue light at the right time of day and from the right sources. That’s why we created TrueDark® Sleep Technology that gives you 24-protection from junk light day and night.

Use TrueDark® Twilights When You’re Ready for Sleep

Stop Junk Light with patented TrueDark® Twilight technology that frees your hormones and neurotransmitters to do their best work.

When the sun goes down, blue light isn’t the only junk light that can disrupt our sleep cycle and more than blue blockers are needed. Patented TrueDark® Twilight is the first and only solution that is designed to work with melanopsin, a protein in your eyes responsible for absorbing light and sending sleep/wake signals to your brain. Without melanopsin, melatonin can’t be accessed.

When you wear your Twilights for as little as 30 min before bed you prevent your melanopsin from detecting the wrong wavelengths of light at the wrong time of day. This supports  your circadian rhythm and helps you fall asleep faster and get more restorative and restful sleep.

TrueDark® Daywalkers for Your Waking Hours

The highly advanced lenses in TrueDark® Daywalkers operate on a more advanced level than traditional blue blockers.

Blue light emitted from the sun helps regulate our sleep/wake cycle. However, in today’s world, we’re exposed to an overabundance of blue light, or junk light from artificial light. This includes hours spent in front of  TVs, phones, and computers. It also includes time spent in artificial man made light with LEDs and fluorescent lights. Even if we’re simply reading a book, we’re doing that in artificial light which emit dramatically more blue light than the sun. That overexposure to junk light during the day has a dramatic impact on our neurotransmitters and hormones that are responsible for quality sleep.
