Amber light therapy is also sometimes referred to as yellow or orange light therapy. It encompasses the range of wavelengths from 570 nm to 620 nm.
Amber light has quite a shallow skin penetration but is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness, such as spider veins. Though it is not typically used for tissue healing or collagen/elastin production, where it excels is in the treatment of problems such as sun damage. It is often considered to be an ideal therapy for sensitive skin, as its therapy is calming and soothing.
Amber light therapy is frequently recommended as a drug free alternative treatment for skin redness and flushing, irritation, rosacea, UV radiation damage, and reducing the appearance of the tiny blood vessels on the nose and face. It helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow, and increase cellular growth.
Affordable Options in Amber Light Therapy
Color Filter Gels
For light and color therapy purposes, yellow, amber and orange are often used interchangeably. However, if your application is wavelength specific, your most affordable option are color filter gels, which sell for around $9 each. Simply browse the list of Roscolene color filters at Rosco.com to find exactly the wavelengths you want, then Google your chosen filter number for the best price online. Place it in front of a full-spectrum light source and you have true, effective amber light or color therapy.
GE Dichromatic Lights (Discontinued)
The GE Dichromatic 150 watt Flood Light is available in Amber from Bulbtronics for around $25. This light will contain the whole range of amber and infrared wavelengths. Please read all about this light before you buy, to make sure it’s best for your specific application.
For amber light or color therapy applications that are non-wavelength specific, it is likely that any affordable amber light will do, such as one off-the-shelf at your local department or home improvement store.
