LED Light Therapy: The Skin Care Solution
Light Therapy For Skin – Look Better, Look Younger, Naturally
That’s a fact, light therapy for skin is an effective skin care treatment. Professionals such as dermatologists and spas are using the technology as an anti-aging or acne solution. Studies have shown that up to 90% of people see improvements of their skin condition, it became inevitable that home use devices would be created from the professional technology and equipment you can find at dermatologists or skin care centers.
Actually, brands that manufacture professional phototherapy equipment also manufactures the personal LED (Light Emitting Diodes) units for home use (Omnilux, Baby Quasar, Photo Therapeutics…).
Born From NASA Research
This phototherapy technology has been researched by NASA, not just for skin problems, but also to fight cancer, heal wounds, or for pain relief purpose and even to grow plants. Some light boxes are also used for affective disorders, sleep disorders, to boost energy, but this is not the same kind of light. We would just want to warn you: because this technology has been researched by NASA doesn’t mean your device is equiped with the exact same technology.
So yes, LED devices are actually “based on a technology researched by NASA” but when you see products advertised with some “NASA” words, this is just a bit of marketing only. Of course, this is still LED light therapy, and the photo rejuvenation devices you will find on this website have all proven to be effective.
What LED Light Therapy Can Do For Your Skin?
As we said earlier, light therapy (for skin) is mainly used to treat aging and acne. It is very common to see that red light treatment are associated with anti-aging and blue light treatments to fight acne.
Red Light For Wrinkles
In the anti-aging process, what is important is the collagen production, and red light stimulates the collagen production. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and firmness of your skin, resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The collagen is also the protein that repair damaged skin cells. You look younger and have a healthier skin.
Blue Light Acne Treatment
The blue light kills the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria. This bacteria is one of the cause of acne, and is sensitive to light in a certain range (405 to 420 nm). The bacteria absorbs the light and the light kills the bacteria. Acne vanishes as a result. Because red light is more the “healing light”, it is also used for acne : it reduces the inflammation caused by acne, reduces scarring and sebum and oil production. You look better, your skin is clear and clean.
