Science shows that serums and creams for your skin containing collagen don’t lead to increased collagen in your skin, vital to preserving its youth. You may have heard of sunbeds for tanning, and are wondering, “what is a collagen sunbed?” You’re in the right place. Here, you can learn about collagen beds and browse our selection of premium models.
What Is a Collagen Bed?
A collagen sunbed is designed like a home tanning bed, but instead of UV light to tan the skin, instead it emits red light, or infrared light. Red light stimulates an increase in the skin’s natural production of collagen — hence, the name, collagen bed.
Collagen is the protein found in your skin most abundantly, and it gives new skin cells the structure upon which to form. Unfortunately, collagen synthesis declines as you age, starting as early as your late twenties. Collagen bed red light therapy gives you the chance to enhance your skin’s collagen production no matter your age.
Collagen Bed Benefits
While there are all types of smaller and less expensive red light therapy products on the market, collagen beds give you the benefit of applying red light therapy to your entire body in one session. The benefits of red light therapy extend beyond slowing the skin’s aging and reducing its visible signs. It also smooths out the appearance of your skin by promoting rapid healing at the cellular level. This helps you fight the effect of sun exposure and environmental toxins your skin is exposed to on a regular basis. It can reduce age spots, sun spots, blemishes and scars.
Below the surface of your skin, red light therapy promotes increased circulation and the formation of new capillaries for oxygenating the skin. In your scalp, this helps promote the growth of new hair follicles, increasing the fullness of your hair. Throughout your body, it reduces inflammation and, in effect, can even fight pain.
Collagen beds come in two designs – laying down and standing up. Browse our selection online and look at the product descriptions to learn more.
