Joovv’s Red Light Therapy delivers light therapy to improve your skin and body down to the cellular level. This device promotes supple rejuvenated skin using readily absorbed red light and near-infrared light to penetrate your skin at a deeper level. This can translate into your cells’ mitochondria producing more energy (ATP) (if you want to know more about the importance of your cells energy producing mitochondria, read 5 Ways to Keep Your Mitochondria Healthy)  stimulating the synthesis of pro-collagen, basic fibroblast growth factors (bFGF). This can translate into healthier, glowy skin. Red light therapy can also aid workout recovery, support performance, inflammation, sleep and circadian rhythms. Joov’s Recovery+ Mode facilitates the body’s natural healing and regenerative process. It’s an ideal post-workout treatment. Choose from “The-Go,” the smallest device ($445) to the “Wall System” ($ 8,395)
