LED light therapy is a revolutionary treatment increasingly used to relieve skin problems such as acne, rosacea, wrinkles and other signs of skin ageing. It’s a non-invasive, painless, risk-free procedure that helps you enjoy silky smooth skin in no time. Here are 7 things you need to know about LED light therapy!
1. Led Light Therapy is used since 1990s
LED light therapy has attracted attention in the medical field since the 1990s thanks to NASA studies, with researchers developing LED light devices to grow plants in space. Later it was also discovered that LED light is very effective in healing wounds. Studies in the medical field have allowed the introduction of lights with other wavelengths and color spectra for individualized, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing treatments.
2. Red light helps eliminate signs of skin aging
Red light rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen production, cellular repair process, improves circulation. Red light is also used to blur wrinkles and fine expression lines. The final effect will be younger looking skin.
3. Blue light is a good treatment for acne
Blue light has anti-bacterial and anti-acne effects – this antibacterial light is used to kill bacteria that lead to sores. Blue light also soothes inflammation, helps to purify the skin and regulates the sebaceous glands. There are situations where blue light is combined with red light to achieve faster and better results in treating acne and reducing scarring.
4. Yellow light reduces inflammation
Yellow light is used to treat many skin conditions involving redness: eczema, rosacea, psoriasis. It is known for its soothing effect and ability to quickly reduce inflammation. Moreover, yellow light stimulates the production of red blood cells, helping to rejuvenate the complexion.
5. Green light treats hyperpigmentation
Green light accelerates skin repair, brightens and adds elasticity and is therefore frequently used in anti-wrinkle therapies. Green light also helps to inhibit excess melanin production (hyperpigmentation is based on an overproduction of melanin). Basically, it prevents it from moving to the surface of the skin. As a result, darker patches of skin fade and the skin regains its even tone.
6. LED light therapy is not based on ultraviolet rays
LED light therapy is safe for all skin types and can be used regularly to treat skin problems. LED light therapy uses color wavelengths of light energy to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and antioxidants.
7. 10 minutes of LED therapy is enough
Unlike other treatments used to relieve skin problems, an LED light therapy session lasts only 10 minutes. For best results, this procedure can be combined with chemical peeling or micro needling. However, you may need 6-8 treatment sessions to get rid of unsightly skin problems. A specialist will analyze your skin and draw up a personalized treatment plan.
