Joovv's phototherapy products adopt a patented modular design and have a "recovery+" mode, which promotes the body's natural recovery, natural healing and regeneration process by continuously emitting red light and pulsed near-infrared light, such as for post-exercise treatment.
There are three options for this product. Users can choose red light therapy, near-infrared light therapy, or both. Red light is easily absorbed by skin surface tissues and cells, promoting skin health and healing. Near-infrared light, which is invisible to the human eye, can penetrate deeper skin tissues, promote the natural recovery of inflammation in the body, and accelerate muscle recovery.
