    Why would anyone specifically go out of their way to get tanned? Literally just spend some time outdoors. I swear, sunbathing as a pastime is only a thing in western countries for some ungodly reason. How does one derive enjoyment from sitting on a beach under a hot sun again?

    I bought one of these for $350 and used it for a month straight and saw no benefits. I feel great when i sunbathe outside for an hour or take some vitamin D. This did absolutely nothing and i want my money back

      Red light therapy has nothing to do with vitamin d or uv light
      If you want uv light there is some fda approved uvb light you can buy, or you can just buy a t5 ho foxture and a uvb lizard or plant bulbs and stand in front of it for 5 minutes a day

    Are these just normal bulbs with a red coating or are they built with certain internal characteristics that make them give a certain frequency of light?

      They are led emitters that only put out light in specific narrow frequency bands. Typically 660nm red and then some other emmiters that put out infrared.

        Thanks, but are they the same as these ones that are also labeled as "red light"?


        Or these ones are just a bulb with a red coating?

          Those lights, also known as heat lamps are in many ways similar. They are the same basic design as a tungsten filament lightbulb but they are tweaked slightly so they put out more infrared. So they are lightbulbs that are painted red but they don’t put out the same spectrum as your standard 60w tungsten filament lightbulb.
          If you are asking if they do the same thing as the red light led panels in the op the answer is yes. However because of the amount of infrared heat they put out its difficult to stand a foot away from one of those bulbs for several minutes as they will heat the surface of your skin fairly quickly. That said i would highly suggest getting one of those clamp light fixtures and a 250w heating bulb and sticking it in your bathroom to use for a few minutes after you get out of the shower.
          I think the red light led panels are a legitimate useful product but their prices are still quite inflated compared to the cost of their components currently. Considering you can get a clamp light fixture and a 250w infrared bulb for $20 from tractor supply its much more appealing then a $600 led panel.
