What is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy is a painless, relaxing skin-care treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production, which can treat mild to moderate acne and reduces redness and acne rosacea. LED stands for light-emitting-diodes. First developed by NASA, LED works by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin.
LED Light Therapy are wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. Red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. LED machines can also minimize fine lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks, and reduce redness.
Is it safe?
Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED can also be done on all skin types, regardless of ethnicity. It remains cool and comfortable for the client because it uses spectral light instead of heat to activate the skin’s own biochemical healing processes.
Why are there different light colours?
Red LED Light – has the ability to reach down into all the layers of the skin where it rejuvenates, stimulates collagen production, prompts cellular repair, and increases circulation promoting a more vibrant and youthful complexion. Red LED lights work synergistically to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation. This combination of LED lights is ideal for deeper lines and wrinkles, scarring, promoting a more even skin tone.
Blue LED Light – has been proven to have powerful anti-bacterial properties that have the ability to kill the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes. It prevents and treats acne. Blue light also helps to purify the skin, stabilize oil glands, and sooth inflammation.
Yellow LED Light – Yellow light reduces the appearance of redness, swelling, and inflammation. This colour of light is beneficial for Rosacea and treating burns such as sunburns. Also stimulates the production of red blood cells in the skin and is effective in treating abnormal pigmentation (hypo and hyper), improving lymphatic function, and stimulating circulation.
Green LED Light – Green light is absorbed into the skin where it has a calming effect. It helps to lighten hyper-pigmentation spots revealing a brighter complexion. The calming effect also has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the surface of the skin. Green LED Therapy is used to treat dilated capillaries, sagging skin around the eyes, under eye circles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots.
