December 22, 2017 By Thrive With the recent snowfall and chilling temperatures, it’s clear that winter has arrived in Maryland and the surrounding DC metro region. Winter can affect people in different ways, not only drying out skin but affecting people’s moods. LED phototherapy can help treat the negative effects of winter that some people experience. Light therapy can bring a lot of benefits during the colder months. Here are a few reasons why you should visit Thrive Cryostudio for our low-level light therapy this winter: LED Phototherapy Helps Alleviate Seasonal Depression/Seasonal Affective Disorder Some people experience seasonal affective disorder, which makes them feel sluggish and even depressed during the winter months. They may find it hard to get out of bed in the morning, avoid spending time with friends and family, and have low energy levels. LED phototherapy is the perfect treatment to combat seasonal affective disorder or depression. Light therapy helps increase blood circulation, restore vitamin D, and boost your mood, which are key for helping reduce the effects of seasonal depression. Our low-level light therapy can give you a quick boost to your energy and mood. Repeat sessions can help you combat seasonal depression all winter long. LED Phototherapy Helps Treat Psoriasis Winter can be a dreaded season for some people affected by psoriasis. Winter’s dry air can make some people’s psoriasis itch and stand out more. Although phototherapy cannot cure psoriasis, it can help clear up your skin and reduce some of the effects of psoriasis. How well light therapy can help you will depend on how severe your psoriasis is, but should help improve your skin in most cases. Thrive Cryostudio’s low-level light therapy is non-toxic and non-invasive, so you can be sure you will receive a healthy and effective solution for helping to treat your psoriasis. LED Phototherapy Restores Vitamin D Vitamin D is an incredibly important nutrient for the human body. Vitamin D helps strengthen bones and helps prevent serious health complications like heart disease and osteoporosis. People with a vitamin D deficiency are at higher risk of these and other health issues. Winter tends to have less sunlight than spring, summer, and fall, which makes vitamin D deficiency more common during the colder months. LED phototherapy mimics sunlight and helps restore vitamin D levels, which your body may be lacking in winter. Restoring your levels of vitamin D not only helps protect you against health complications but contributes to boosting your mood and energy levels. Our non-invasive low-level light therapy can help replenish your body’s vitamin D to keep you healthy during winter.
