People who aren’t familiar with the benefits of red light therapy might be skeptical that light treatment can help with post-pregnancy challenges, but the results are real. We’ll explain how red light therapy, including the Contour Light System, provides these postpartum benefits in the sections below.
Postpartum Benefits of Red Light Treatment
While we have discussed the benefits of red light treatment during pregnancy in a previous post, the positive effects of red light postpartum treatments can be just as impactful.
When red light and near-infrared light penetrate the skin, they stimulate natural healing processes at the cellular level. When healing begins, the benefits can include pain relief, reduced inflammation, scar or stretch mark reduction, body contouring, and healthier-looking skin due to an increase in elastin and collagen production.
The physical benefits of red light therapy for postpartum are well-documented, but there are mental health benefits too.
New mothers suffering from postpartum depression and anxiety, for example, can experience an emotional lift and mood improvements as a result of red light treatments when applied directly to the face or head area along with the whole body. With authorization from the patient’s treating physician, this form of red light therapy can be an effective adjunct to mental health treatment or a useful alternative for mothers who are concerned about passing metabolized prescriptions onto their children during breastfeeding.
How the Contour Light System Provides Postpartum Skin Rejuvenation
The Contour Light System harnesses the benefits of red light therapy for postpartum treatments more effectively than other delivery systems.
Unlike hot light from bulbs or lamps that can have destructive and uncomfortable side effects, Contour Light Treatments apply red and near-infrared light through LEDs affixed to soft, flexible pads that are comfortably wrapped around or laid directly onto the skin in the areas of concern.
Further, a proprietary reflective coating on the pads captures and reflects light back into the skin that would otherwise bounce off and dissipate, improving light energy retention and all the benefits it brings.
Why Postpartum Wellness Practitioners are Adding Contour Light Treatment
Wellness providers who work with postpartum clients can add Contour Light Treatment as a non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical, on-site service that pays for itself quickly – in both results and revenue.
The noticeable improvements that red light therapy can provide after just a few treatments can also generate positive word-of-mouth and repeat visits to your facility.
“I saw immediate results after just two 20-minute sessions! I lost a total of 4.5 inches around my stomach and waist, and the device allowed for a very relaxing and soothing experience. I absolutely loved the Contour Light System and can’t wait for my next treatment!”
— Elizabeth B.
In conclusion, the postpartum recovery period can be a challenging one, but red light therapy, specifically, the Contour Light System promises to be a valuable and reliable form of treatment – for clients and practitioners alike.
