LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is great in every single facial to calm any areas of irritation and it’s also brilliant at brightening the skin. When used consistently, over time, LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.
This treatment has maximum effect when combined with a concurrent Microneedling programme.
Uses and benefits
LED light therapy can help treat a variety of skin problems, including:
signs of ageing, including wrinkles and age spots
other inflammatory skin conditions
It does not contain UV rays, which can be harmful to the skin. Therefore, LED therapy is suitable for regular use.
Unlike chemical peels or laser therapy, LED light therapy does not cause burns. The treatment is also safe for all types and colours of skin.
Red LED light may improve scarring and signs of ageing, such as wrinkles. It does so by stimulating fibroblasts, which are skin cells that are responsible for collagen production.
Collagen is a protein in the skin and other connective tissues. It plays a role in skin healing. The body produces less collagen as a person ages, which causes the skin to show signs of ageing. With consistent scheduled use the skin will feel tighter and plumper.
Red light also reduces skin inflammation.
Experts believe that blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil-producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil and in many cases improving acne symptoms.
Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation.
It is also discovered that blue light can improve the healing of third degree burns.
