How LED Light Therapy Works
LED therapy is a process that emits infrared lights on your face, neck and decollete in different spectrums or wavelengths. The wavelengths differ depending on the type of treatment you want. In this case, clients use a LED light mask over their face to receive their treatment. The light-waves sent to your skin triggers reactions in your skin cells at the dermis layer. Your dermis layer then converts the light into a type of energy that allows your cells to heal your skin. Basically, the facial light therapy helps speed up your skins ability to perform its natural functions.
What LED is
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. What it means is that there is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin. That chip them emits wavelengths (or colors) of light energy to help treat and heal the skin.
Benefits of Color Wavelengths in Facial Light Therapy
There are different lightwaves that are involved with LED therapy. Each one offers different benefits.
Clients looking to increase their collagen production should use red light therapy. The red lights increase blood flow to capillaries on the face.
As a result, the skin begins to heal and rejuvenate itself resulting in younger looking skin. Red light therapy is also great for treating scarring and rosacea since the red light can deeply penetrate your skin past the first layer.
Blue light is medically proven to kill P Acne bacteria beneath your skin. This will clear up existing acne and prevent future breakouts without the use of topical medications. It reduces acne inflammation and drastically boost skin recovery while decreasing skin oiliness by lowering excess sebum production.
Benefits of Facial Light Therapy
LED therapy is helpful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps reduce pore size and evens out a client's skin tone. The result is smoother, brighter looking skin. LED therapy is incredibly beneficial for clients who just had a peel done. Not only will the LED facial help reduce inflammation, but your skin will also end up looking perfect very quickly. Clients also find that light therapy helps them reduce their SAD (seasonal affected disorder) symptoms during the winter when there is less natural sunlight.
