Are there any side effects of red light therapy?

Red light therapy is generally well-tolerated, with minimal risk of adverse effects when administered correctly. However, some individuals may experience mild and transient side effects, including temporary discomfort, erythema (redness), or dryness of the skin. These effects are typically short-lived and resolve spontaneously within hours following treatment. In rare cases, individuals with photosensitive conditions or those taking photosensitizing medications may experience heightened sensitivity to light or exacerbation of existing symptoms. To mitigate the risk of adverse reactions, it's important to adhere to recommended treatment protocols, including appropriate eye protection and monitoring for signs of overexposure or skin irritation. As with any therapeutic intervention, consulting with a qualified healthcare provider can help ensure safe and effective use of red light therapy based on individual health status and treatment goals.
