Red AAH Light
How it Works
Red Light also known as Photonic Therapy is a safe, natural, non-invasive way to promote healing and control pain. This therapy has been proven to help animals as well as people. Our product emits a specialized 660nm red light which can be applied directly to the skin. This technology has been studied for over 40 years and produces fast relief and healing with minimal, if any, side effects.
Red and near-infrared light can penetrate tissue because they are not blocked by blood or water as much as other wavelengths. This wavelength is used in medical settings for burn treatment, wound healing, joint and muscle pain, sports injuries, etc., but the machines made available to medical professionals are considered to be cost prohibitive for the average person. Over the past several years, new technology allowed improved battery efficiency, increased voltages, and more light output to be packaged into a small affordable device.
Photonic therapy works because the body’s tissue can absorb this type of light at a cellular level, converting it to cellular energy (known as ATP). Many studies have shown that this energy accelerates activity in the mitochondria (the part of the cell that generates protein, collagen, and healing materials) as well as improving blood flow in the area being treated, speeding healing and minimizing pain.
The brain receives signals to release endorphins (natural pain killers) and serotonin into the body. This chain reaction:
- Reduces pain and swelling
- Increases lymphatic activity
- Strengthens the immune system
- Accelerates cell regeneration
- Increases circulation
- Relaxes muscles
- Increases anti-viral properties
- Encourages collagen production
- Regulates serotonin levels
Visible red light (at the correct wave length) penetrates skin tissue to 8-10mm and is beneficial in the treatment of numerous conditions and aliments, some of which are:
- Acute/Chronic Injuries
- Arthritis/Joint Pain
- Back Pain
- Behaviors: fear, aggression, anxiety, depression
- Colic/digestion issues
- Viral infections
- Muscle Strains & Soreness
- Tendon/Ligament Injuries
- Cuts and Open Wounds
- Immune System Disorders
- Body Soreness
- Stifle, Hocks
- And much, much more!
Please note – Research has shown no ill side effects from this type of therapy. There may be a feeling of relaxation, light warmth, skin tingling at the point of contact, and a sense of well-being. Dark skin may require slightly longer treatment times, since melanin blocks more of the light than with light skin.
Blue AAH Light
Did you know there are many uses for the BLUE AAH Light? Not only is it anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, but it is also a convenient way to have “Ice in a Light”. It is portable and never melts so it is there when you need it most.
How it Works
As with the other color lights, Blue Light has more than one application. It is commonly used to treat skin conditions, especially acne, but is also used any time there is extra heat in the body that needs to be removed. We like to say it is like having “Ice in a Light!” The blue light can calm the area that has too much activity such as a fresh sprain or anytime you feel excess heat, apply the blue light.
Blue light is highly effective on bacteria and fungus and can be applied topically at anytime. Issues such as Scratches, Rain Rot and Ringworm all respond well to the blue light. Any time there is a chance of infection, such as an open wound, apply the blue light first.
Blue light is a scientifically proven acne treatment with a long list of benefits. Research has proven that blue light therapy for acne – in the 405nm-420nm spectrum – actually kills Propionibacterium Acnes(P. acnes) bacteria. P. acnes bacteria create tiny molecules called porphyrins. When porphyrins are exposed to blue light they produce free radicals that kill the bacteria that cause inflammatory acne.
Since LED treatment doesn’t emit harmful radiation or heat, it’s 100% safe. This is different from laser treatment, which damages your skin. Furthermore, with LED treatment, there’s no downtime like there is with laser treatment.
While other treatments beautify the surface of your skin, light therapy strengthens and rejuvenates your tissue from the inside out. When these regiments are combined, you’ll get great results on both the inside and the outside too.
In addition to the blue light therapy, the AAH Light allows you the flexibility of interchanging the colored heads and research has shown that the combination of red and blue light is even more effective for acne treatment than blue light alone. “We found a final mean improvement of 76% in inflammatory lesions using a combined blue±red light radiation which was significantly superior to those achieved by blue light or benzoyl peroxide.” July 2000 – British Journal of Dermatology

Blue light therapy has been used to effectively treat skin disorders such as Rosacea, acne, sun damage, oily skin, wrinkles, psoriasis, skin cancer and enlarged sebaceous glands.
The AAH Light and Acne Therapy
Many people, desperate to rid themselves of the unsightly blemishes and inflammation caused by acne, turn to invasive and dangerous drugs, chemicals, and laser procedures to end the frustration of this condition. Not only are these treatment options expensive, they could also cause unwarranted damage to the sensitive skin on the face and neck. By using the AAH Light, you are using your body’s natural cellular function to help fight bacteria and inflammation instead of relying on harsh chemicals and other invasive treatment options.
With no known side effects, blue light therapy allows its users freedom from the dryness and discomfort associated with topical acne medications and the damaging effects of UV lights and laser therapy. The AAH Light kills acne-causing bacteria and regulates oil production by working naturally within the body.
The specific wavelengths emitted by the AAH light are absorbed by acne-causing bacteria, such as P. acnes, in the pores. This bacteria then produces a molecule that occurs naturally within the body called a porphyrin, which in turn kills the bacteria. The wavelengths used in this process are between 405 and 420 nanometers, which is different than the wavelengths used in ultraviolet light.
Blue LED wavelengths of 415 nanometers penetrate deeply into the pores to stimulate cell growth and repair, clearing the complexion and beautifying the skin from the inside out. Using the AAH Light consistently for only 15 minutes a day will help treat and prevent mild to moderate cases of acne.
Green – it’s the new Red!
Light therapy is a simple process in which a specific wavelength of light is projected onto the skin. The light causes chemical reactions in the target area, which excite cells to increase cellular performance that in turn can regrow hair, eliminate acne, and rejuvenate skin. The key to light therapy is the wavelength of light, as different colors (wavelengths) produce different chemical reactions within the cells.
As with all colors of light, one can achieve numerous benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. Green light is found at the center of the visible spectrum, bringing balance and calm to the skin and organs. The calming effect also has anti-inflammatory properties and can even help reduce hyper-pigmentation.
We often hear the expression “feeling blue” or “green with envy.” That’s because color is known to have a profound effect on our emotions and mood.
We often use red to create a statement of strength or power. Different colors can be used to promote calm, energize, create a feeling of warmth or being cold.
How does the Green AAH Light work?
As the color green is in the middle of the color spectrum, it creates a natural balancing effect on the body. Green is considered a cooler color and also helps bring about a slightly sedative effect which will also help with sleeplessness.
Green is the most predominant color in nature and is often applied before and after other colors to bring greater balance. This therapy promotes balance and calm in the skin while reducing redness, as well as bringing the organs and body systems into balance. When the organs and systems of the body are attuned with the green light, the body returns to a balanced state. The body is then able to protect and heal itself when it is in a state of perfect balance.
Green light is absorbed into the skin where it has a calming effect. Anti-aging therapies often include green light therapy. It helps to lighten hyper-pigmentation spots revealing a brighter complexion. The calming effect also has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the surface of the skin. Green LED Therapy is used to treat dilated capillaries, sagging skin around the eyes, under eye circles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots.
Its calming nature can be used in combination with other light therapy to further rejuvenate the skin. The green light also calms damaged skin and reduces pain associated with it.
The green light can affect the appearance of skin spots and discolorations by affecting the melanocytes that reside in the bottom layer of the epidermis. They reduce the production of these cells which allows the spots and patches to fade over time. The fading of these patches results in the appearance of younger, healthier, rejuvenated skin and a more even complexion.
