1. What is Infrared light?
We tend to think of light in terms of what we see. Some light frequencies, however, are beyond the range of visible light so we do not see them with the naked eye. Light is created by electromagnetic frequencies. We see visible light as colors that range from Blues to Green, Yellow, Orange and Reds. Different colors are created by the different frequencies of light. The frequency of light is so rapid or high, that light is expressed by wavelength or nanometers (nm) rather than the frequency in cycles per second or Hertz.

Violet is at one end of the spectrum with a higher frequency or more rapid vibration and Red is at the other end, with a lower frequency or slower vibration. Light beyond the visible Violet range is called Ultraviolet light and light beyond the Red end of the light spectrum is called Infrared light. Far Infrared (FIR) light generates heat and is used in saunas. Near Infrared (NIR) light, as used in the LightWorks, is naturally emitted by body cells.
2. Is this the same as Ultraviolet light?
No, Ultraviolet light is at the Blue end of the light spectrum—shorter wavelengths and higher frequencies. Red and Near Infrared (NIR) light are at the other end of the light spectrum—longer wavelengths and lower frequencies. We do not see Ultraviolet light as it is beyond the visible range of light. We are advised to be careful about the amount of Ultraviolet light to which we are exposed, as this light is responsible for sunburns and aging of the skin. There are no such cautions with the Red and NIR light or other colors in the visible spectrum.
3. How deep does the LED light penetrate?
The degree of penetration varies depending on the color of the light. The fact that light stimulates reactions in the body is more important than how deeply a color penetrates. Light of any color is effective as the light creates reactions in the body similar to photosynthesis in plants. The light stimulates reactions that continue after the session with the light has ended.

With regards to penetration depth, although Near Infrared (NIR) cannot be seen, it penetrates the deepest. Light penetration decreases moving from Infrared to Red to Orange to Yellow to Green to Blue. Blue has the lowest light penetration.

Other factors that determine how deeply light penetrates are:
A greater intensity of light increases the penetration compared to a lower intensity of the same color. Intensity is measured by Joules per cm² or milliwatts per cm²
The skin can determine the depth of penetration. The skin is able to absorb light more deeply in certain areas of the body.
Most importantly, light can penetrate more deeply into the body if it travels along a meridian—one of the invisible light transmission paths originally discovered by the Ancient Chinese as part of the acupuncture system.
4. Will LED light damage my skin?
No. LED light as well as the frequencies of the LightWorks are considered beneficial to skin tissue.
5. Does wearing lotion keep the light from penetrating my skin?
A natural cream or lotion that is absorbed by the skin should not block the LED light. For maximum effectiveness though, avoid applying heavy creams or lotions before using the LightWorks.
6. Is it okay to use the LightWorks on animals?
Yes. The LightWorks is a popular unit for use on pets because its easy-to-use Hand Paddle makes it simple to apply to any area. Light triggers ongoing benefits so even brief periods of exposure can be useful. Remember to avoid aiming the light directly into the eyes of an animal.
7. Where is the LightWorks manufactured?
The manufacturing of the SOTA Products is a global collaboration. The following countries participate in the making of the LightWorks (listed in alphabetical order): Canada, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Korea and Taiwan. Our units say Made in China because China is the last step in the assembly of the units.

We are grateful that the people in all of these countries help us to produce quality products at reasonable prices for our customers.
