LED (light-emitting-diodes) Light Therapy is a painless, non-invasive skincare treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production and treats mild to moderate acne.
This particular type of therapy was discovered by NASA’s space program. NASA scientists found that “LEDs stimulated wound-healing at near-infrared wavelengths of 680, 730, and 880 nanometers. Furthermore, near-infrared LED light has quintupled the growth of fibroblasts and muscle cells in tissue culture.” In other words, various colored LED lights stimulate and energize cellular activity, which creates collagen and elastin for anti-aging benefits. Red LED light is responsible for stimulating the fibroblasts that produce collagen, while blue LED light kills the bacteria deep in the skin that is responsible for acne.
LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of universities and medical labs. More than 2,000 reports and documents have been written on this technology, and studies show LED Light Therapy has a 90 percent success rate. The recommended professional LED protocol is six treatments a week or two apart, followed by a maintenance treatment every month or two. On average, people begin to see a noticeable difference between 10 days and two weeks after treatment.
LED Light Therapy is one of the safest, quickest and most affordable ways to achieve younger-looking skin. Because the light used is not focused, non-coherent, and doesn’t generate heat, LED Light Therapy is much safer than laser therapy. There is no record of adverse side effects, and the light does not damage the skin in any way.
