LED Light Therapy
You’ve probably seen it touted in celebrity endorsements, plastered in magazines, or outlined on the menu of your favorite health spa. But what is light therapy, are there any advantages, and is it safe?
How does it work?
Light emitting diode (LED) light therapy involves tiny wavelengths that penetrate pores and skin at the cellular level. The wavelengths have different impacts on the cells depending on the nanometre range of the wavelength, designated by the color of the light.
What are the benefits?
Yellow, red, and infrared LED light therapy has an amazing range of benefits including:
- Stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis
- Boosts cellular power
- Increases blood flow
- Decreases length and depth of lines and wrinkles
- Fades age spots and discoloration
- Diminishes scarring of the skin
- Brightens pores and skin tone
- Reduces pore size
- Improves the consistency, firms, and tightens skin
- Plumps the lip area
- Reduces redness
- Accelerates treatment of pimples, acne, and blemishes
In addition to soothing pores and skin, blue LED has the unique capability to kill the bacteria responsible for acne and P. acne.
How long will it take before I see results?
Responses such as a brighter skin tone, decreased pore size, and reduced redness happen instantly. However, fighting deep wrinkles, age spots, and scarring require multiple treatments.
Is it safe?
LED light therapy is a safe cure for the skin and provides a natural option for treating a plethora of skin problems. You can expect noticeable improvements within the skin without intrusive and damaging treatments.
