If you’ve been considering LED light therapy for a while now, then keeping reading as below we highlight some of the great benefits that LED light therapy can bring to your skin and beyond.
Firstly, for those who aren’t aware of this form of technology, LED light therapy works by using a number of LED bulbs in different colours to deliver light at a specific wavelength to create a change within the skin.
It removes the need to wound the skin or use skin care ingredients. This means it’s an effective treatment for all skin types, including those who have super sensitive skin or suffer from acne or rosacea.
Blue and red light are the two colours commonly used. The blue light targets the porphyrins located within the bacteria which helps to destroys acne at the source. Whereas, the red LED light therapy aims for the mitochondria organelle which is found within the cell. This allows the LED red light to energise the skin by helping it to function with greater efficacy.
So, together, they are a force to be reckoned with.
Some of the main benefits include:
If you want to know the secret to younger-looking skin, then you’ve found it. Red LED light therapy is used predominately for its anti-ageing benefits because of its ability to stimulate elastin and collagen production.
The red light increases the number of capillaries in the skin and when this happens, the blood flow to the skin tissues will improve, resulting in the increased transportation of nutrients and oxygen to the cells.
Also, the extra elastin and collagen will smooth and plump-out the skin which results in younger looking skin.
Red light also soothes skin damaged by the sun and works well for freckled skin and sagging skin.
The blue light in LED light therapy is known for its anti-bacterial benefits, so it’s used in the treatment of acne by improving hormonal acne or inflammatory acne and specifically targets active acne. It’s also beneficial for other skin issues such as rosacea or eczema.
As mentioned above, often blue and red lights are used in conjunction with each other to produce a great result.
