Anti-ageing with LED Light Therapy
If you've been researching beauty treatments online lately, it's possible you've seen ads for LED (light-emitting diode) masks in your social media feeds with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen, Shay Mitchell, Katy Perry, Madonna, Kim Kardashian, and Jessica Alba.
LED light therapy is a safe and effective, pain-free and non-ablative technique to improve sun-induced ageing and other conditions including rosacea, acne, dull skin rejuvinaation, treating fine lines and wrinkles, and boosting collagen in the skin. LED lights are like fancy knives. They use a source of light, of various wavelengths, to target certain areas, while not harming other areas.
NASA first began studying the capabilities of LED lights back in the 1980s. Initially using them to speed up the plant growing process, they eventually discovered that red lights helped heal the wounds of astronauts in outer space by encouraging the collagen production process.
LED light therapy is completely non-invasive and does not hurt. All you'll feel is a tiny bit of warmth. Light Therapy doesn't use UV light so there's no risk of tanning whatsoever.
Light therapy is good for all skin types, literally everyone, and incredible for rosacea.
If you are looking to treat a mole or sun spot using LED light therapy, always confirm the diagnosis first with a doctor. It could be a dangerous cancer.
LED light therapy doesn’t cause burns compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy.
HOW IT WORKS
Different wavelengths of the visible light spectrum correspond to different colors of LED light and penetrate the skin to different depths. Depending on how deeply they penetrate, LED lights are thought to have different biological effects.
LEDs can exert a powerful cascade of events in the skin.
TYPES OF LED LIGHT
RED LIGHT - anti-ageing
Red light therapy has a wavelength of between 620nm to 700nm.
Red light therapy is predominately used for its anti-ageing benefits because of its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Experts believe that red LED light acts on cells in the skin known as fibroblasts, which play a role in production of collagen, a protein that makes up a large part of connective tissue and helps the skin to recover when it's harmed. So, in theory, red light could help to reverse some of the signs related to photoaging in the skin.
BLUE LIGHT - anti-acne
Blue light therapy has a wavelength of between 405nm to 420nm.
This is a powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne without irritation, reduces oil production, prevents future breakout and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.
AMBER LIGHT - treats rosacea
Amber light therapy has a wavelength of between 570nm to 620nm.
Amber light therapy is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness such as rosacea. It is ideal for sensitive skin because of its calming and soothing. Amber light therapy helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow and increase cellular growth.
