What Is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy Is A New Noninvasive Treatment Most Notably Perfected By NASA To Improve Wound Healing In Space. LED Light Therapy Uses A Number Of LED Bulbs (Light Emitting Diode) To Deliver Optimized Light At A Specific Wavelength To Stimulate Collagen And Elastin Production, Reduce Inflammation And Accelerate The Healing Process. It Is Excellent At Supporting Non-Ablative And Non-Invasive Methods By Encouraging The Skin’s Natural Healing Process. Until Its Discovery By NASA, The Only Real Way Of Stimulating Collagen Production Was Either Through The Use Of Ingredients, Such As Retinoids, Or Through Controlled Wounding To Stimulate The Body’s Own Would Healing Response. LED Light Therapy Is Safe, Painless And Effective For Stimulating Collagen And Elastin Production, Without Any Side Effects. Recent Research Has Found That LED’s Stimulate The Basic Energy Flow And Perspiration Of Cells. Tests Have Shown Increasing Specific Wavelengths Of Light Can Affect The Skin In Positive Ways.
What are the benefits of LED light Therapy?
LED light therapy helps serums penetrate the skin after MTS or a Covered BB Glow Facial. (15-20 minutes at the end of the treatment is recommended.)
LED Light therapy has a positive effect on cell growth, collagen and elastin production, microcirculation and overall skin condition. It also improves sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, freckles and pigmentation caused by sun exposure. The LED consists of 287 kinds of special medical lamps. There are several different color led lights that serve different purposes.
Red light is the most popular LED treatment. It treats fine lines and wrinkles, improves collagen production, reduces overall redness and inflammation and reverses sun damage. Red LED also speeds up blood circulation, improves skin elasticity and tone, removes dullness, and heals wounds.
Blue/Green light has a calming effect and has been proven to assist in reducing melasma and other skin discolorations. Research suggests that it targets melanocytes, which are melanin-producing cells in the bottom layer of the epidermis, to prevent excess melanin from traveling to the surface of the skin and break up clusters of pigment.
Yellow light a healing light that penetrates deep into the layers of skin causing rejuvenation, cell repair and increased circulation. It also stimulates lymph activity, making it a perfect treatment following an intensive treatment.
