What is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy uses a number of LED bulbs (light emitting diode) to deliver optimized light at a specific wavelength to stimulate a change within the skin. This skin rejuvenation treatment is non-invasive and gentle enough for all skin types. LED Light Therapy is a safe, painless and effective way of stimulating collagen and elastin production, reducing inflammation and accelerating the healing process without any side effects.
Skin Benefits of LED Light Therapy
Red light therapy is predominately used for its anti-aging benefits because of its ability to strengthen the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Red light therapy is a very effective treatment for rosacea and reducing the redness that is associated with broken / weak capillaries. It also helps the skin to retain moisture more effectively, while helping to accelerate the healing process to improve overall skin tone.
Blue light therapy is predominately used for its anti-bacterial benefits. Acne bacteria contains a molecule called porphyrin, which is absorbed by the blue LED light. The absorption of blue light by porphyrin creates singlet oxygen (free radicals) which are released into the bacteria, killing the bacteria.
Amber light therapy is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness, such as rosacea. It is ideal for sensitive skin because of its calming and soothing nature. Amber light therapy also helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow and increase cellular growth.
