Did you know there’s a LED light therapy facial for acne, anti-aging, and more? Yes, LED, which stands for Light-Emitting-Diodes, is now being harnessed for health and beauty purposes. Let’s look at what this treatment is and how it addresses acne, the appearance of aging, and other skin/health concerns.
LED treatment uses photons (light energy) to penetrate below your skin for therapeutic purposes. LED technology is used in a variety of commercial and consumer ways. This procedure, also known as “Photo Rejuvenation”, uses short wavelengths of light to reach into your skin, kill bacteria, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation.
What does LED treat?
Many are not aware that acne is caused by the bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes. LED effectively treats long-lasting acne with the different types of wavelength lights. While practitioners often use the “blue” LED light to penetrate pores and drive out acne bacteria, we know better results can be achieved by using both the blue and red LED lights. After several sessions, it has been demonstrated to noticeably diminish acne in just a matter of weeks.
Would you like to improve your aging skin without resorting to something as painful, expensive, and intrusive as plastic surgery? The good news is the LED treatment works in such a way that it stimulates collagen regeneration and elastin production. Collagen is the supportive protein that helps skin cells adhere to each other, improving skin strength and elasticity. It’s not some unsubstantiated quack technique either. Scientific research shows that LED can “stimulate the fibroblasts that produce collagen – giving your skin a younger and plumper look.” Evidence has been reported by the Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy.
Inflammation and Damaged Tissue
Recognized by NASA and the National Institute of Health, LED treatments are very effective in reducing inflammation and repairing damaged tissues. Most importantly, LED blue and red lights are proven to boost the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). ATP is called the “energy of life”. It gives your body and skin cells energy, including those responsible for healing. Cellular energy from ATP is a critical ingredient for fighting inflammation and repairing damaged tissue. In summary, the more ATP you have – the faster your body and skin will heal!
