Light therapy has been around for over 30 years. It was originally developed by astronauts to help with tissue healing and repair. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. There is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin. The chip emits wavelengths or colors of light energy to treat and help heal the skin. There are a multitude of benefits LED light therapy offers. They include treating acne, regulating natural oil production, stimulating collagen and elastin and decreasing redness and wrinkles. Certain wave lengths can even and have been shown to reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone.The spectrum of light does not include UV so you won't get a tan and it won't cause any damage.
How does light therapy work?
LED light therapy works by emitting infrared lights on to your face, neck and decollete in different wave lengths.The wavelengths then trigger reactions in the skin at the dermal layer. Your dermis layer converts the light into energy that allows your cells to heal. Basically, the light therapy helps to speed up functions your skin would normally perform.
Benefits of the different Wavelength Colors
Two of the most common Wavelengths used are..
Clients looking to turn back the clock should use red light therapy. The red light helps increase collagen production. The light increases blood flow to the capillaries on the face. As a result skin starts to heal and is rejuvenated decreasing scars and fine lines.
Is acne and breakouts an issue? Blue light therapy will kill acne-causing bacteria found in the skin. A high energy form of oxygen is generated attacking the bacteria.
