LED Light Therapy is Changing the Face of Skin Rejuventation
Light emitting diode (LED) technology has been around for decades. It’s been used in the medical industry for years in eye surgeries and other delicate operations. Now recent studies are showing the many benefits of LED light therapy in skin rejuventation.
What is LED light therapy and how does it work?
Light therapy uses LEDs to provide visible red and blue light and invisible infrared light to penetrate the skin’s surface and stimulate rejuvenation at the cellular level. It is much like the way plants use sunlight in photosynthesis. Stimulating the body's tissues to convert light energy into cellular energy can treat many skin problems including:
• Stretch marks
As we age, our skin loses it’s ability to heal and reconstruct itself. Decreased production of collagen and elastin affect the physical appearance and vitality of our skin. Physical flaws, such as wrinkles and hyperpigmentation, are more evident. Light therapy can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging and damage to the skin.
What are LED treatments like?
LED treatments are safe, natural, and pain free. Before each treatment, the skin is cleansed to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. The client then lies under the light panels for about 20 minutes. The lights emit a gentle, relaxing warmth. Many clients even fall asleep during the process.
The number of treatments will vary depending on the client’s needs. Some may only require a few treatments, while those with more chronic conditions that affect the deeper tissue layers may require more sessions. Your skin care expert will develop a treatment protocol to meet your skin’s specific needs.
How effective is LED light therapy?
Light therapy treats the skin from the inside out. Instead of just treating external skin damage, it works at the cellular level to promote healing before it is evident on our faces. Clients are seeing great results, particularly those with acne.
“I have chronic acne. I’ve tried countless treatments and products over the years, but nothing ever kept my skin clear. Then I found LED light therapy, and it has completely changed my skin. I rarely breakout now, and if I do, it’s minimal. It’s so great being able to leave the house without makeup knowing my skin is clear.”—M.S., Client since 2008.
Many anti-aging and skin rejuventation treatments involve invasive, painful, and often expensive means of correction, which can prove ineffective. Light therapy is the most effective, non-invasive skin rejuvenator. It’s proven results make it an affordable solution for clearer, younger looking skin.
