LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Light therapy uses wavelengths (or colors) of light to stimulate skin cells. This stimulation increases circulation and encourages the growth of collagen. This has been shown to be an effective and non-invasive way to rejuvenate the skin and promote the repair of common damage.
Light penetrates through the epidermis and into the dermis layer of the skin. The dermis is the layer of the skin that contains collagen and elastin which give the skin its flexibility and strength. This layer also contains nerve endings, sweat and oil glands, hair follicles and blood vessels.
By using wavelengths of light that penetrate to this level we stimulate the collagen and elastin which restore a youthful look to the skin.
Each color of the spectrum represents a different wavelength of light. Each of these wavelengths can penetrate the skin to a different degree and thus affect different changes in the layers of the skin.
Red light improves blood flow to the skin tissues and therefore the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the cells, while the extra collagen and elastin will smooth and plump-out the skin. This can slow and reduce the effects of aging on the skin, giving a more youthful appearance.
Blue LED light kills acne bacteria when they’re hit with a certain wavelength light. If you have acne, always talk to your doctor about it. For example, what type of acne you have. If it's inflammatory acne you might benefit from blue light skin treatment.
The light energy also stimulates tighten pores and reduces oiliness of the skin. Altogether it has a rejuvenation effect on the skin.
