Light therapy has shown to offer undeniable benefits for anti-aging, hydration, wound healing, and skin tone. Light Emitting Diode (LED) are remarkable devices that emit different wavelengths of light on the skin, stimulating its natural healing process. With blue, red, and infrared light utilised, LED can target and reduce oil glands, eliminate acne-causing bacteria, stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, reduce inflammation, and enhance cell permeability and absorption. We have used LED Light Therapy as part of our facial treatments for many years. And their excellent results plus relaxing, non-invasive treatment, make this treatment incredibly sought after among both our clients and facialists.
What is LED Light Skin Therapy and how it works
This therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to rejuvenate and heal the skin. The therapy works by using low-level light therapy (LLLT) that penetrates the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are vital components of healthy skin. The treatment is offered by professionals such as The Facialist who use a range of LED lights that emit different wavelengths. Each wavelength targets specific skin concerns, such as acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. The therapy is painless and requires no downtime, making it an excellent option for those looking for a quick and easy skin fix.
Health benefits of LED on skin
In recent years, the skin benefits of LED have become increasingly evident. LED therapy involves using different light waves to enhance the appearance of your skin, whether you're struggling with aging, acne, or hyperpigmentation. The major advantage of LED therapy lies in its ability to stimulate collagen production, which can help to alleviate fine lines and wrinkles. It also obliterates acne-causing bacteria, prevents breakouts, and reduces inflammation and redness, making it an excellent choice for people suffering from rosacea, acne and other skin conditions.
Different types of LED treatments
In LED light therapy, varying wavelengths correspond to different visible colours, each one penetrating the skin at varying depths. The blue light targets the topmost layer, while yellow light penetrates deeper. Red light travels even further, and near-infrared light penetrates to the deepest level. Different colours produce distinct effects, such as red light therapy reducing inflammation and boosting collagen production for more youthful skin. Experts suggest blue light therapy destroys acne-causing bacteria.
