What is the purpose of LED Light Therapy
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which emits therapeutic wavelengths (or colors) of light energy.
Not to be confused with a laser, the light therapy was originally developed to fast-track the healing of wounds and post-surgery scars. The rejuvenation of healthy skin, too, was a beneficial coincidence.
If the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermal layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel for cells.
Red LEDs: Red LEDs are used to boost collagen production, improve fine lines/wrinkles, rosacea, and sun damage. This helps to improve the overall uniformity of a person’s skin and gives the patient a healthy glow.
Blue LEDs: Blue LEDs are most commonly used to treat blemishes and other facial afflictions that are caused from clogged pores.
LED therapy can be added to most aesthetic treatments to improve your overall experience, or it can be done in a stand-alone treatment.
