LED Therapy can effectively address signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, furrows and rhytides. LED therapy is specifically designed to ameliorate many types of skin conditions, including blemishes, acne and inflammation.
What does LED light therapy do?
Light emitting diode (LED) therapy is a skincare treatment that is used to address various signs of aging and other skin concerns, such as: acne; inflammation; wrinkles; fine lines; and blemishes. It also aids in the skin’s natural preparation process, allowing the cells to heal more quickly and efficiently. LED therapy is used in many clinical settings and has the potential to address a wide range of skin concerns.
How does LED light therapy work?
LED therapy works by exposing the skin to a device that produces certain wavelengths of light, particularly red and blue light. The mitochondria of the cells, which produce cellular energy, soak up this light and produce more energy. Experts believe that this helps cells repair themselves and become healthier, which spurs healing in skin and other soft tissues. LED therapy uses very low levels of heat and does not hurt or damage the skin in any way.
What are the benefits of LED light therapy?
LED therapy can help treat a long list of skin concerns and irregularities, including:
One of the main benefits of LED light therapy it’s its safety record; several studies have confirmed that LED therapy does not do any damage to the skin or compromise its health. The light in LED therapy does not contain UV rays, which can be harmful to the skin; this makes LED therapy suitable for regular use. LED therapy is also safe for all skin types, tones and sensitivities.
There are two different colors used in LED therapy, each with a different purpose:
• Blue light is used to reduce activity in the sebaceous glands, which produce oil in the skin. This reduction in activity improves acne symptoms by causing the glands to produce less oil. Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation, and thus, reducing its symptoms. Blue light can also improve the healing of wounds and third degree burns.
• Red light may improve scarring and signs of aging, such as wrinkles, lines and furrows. It does this by acting on fibroblasts, the skin cells responsible for the production of collagen. Red light also reduces skin inflammation.
