One of the most exciting skincare scientific advancements has to be bringing the power of LED therapy out of the beauty therapist’s office straight into your home. An LED skin treatment is the perfect complement to every skin care routine!
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED phototherapy uses the power of different light wavelengths to influence the skin’s behaviour. Some specific colours, such as blue light, work by killing acne-causing bacteria on the skin.
The main other colour and wavelength used in LED light treatment is a red LED light. Red light has a slightly different effect on the skin and is used to help support the skin’s renewal process. Because it has a different wavelength, it can penetrate deeper into the skin - where the fibroblasts are.
Fibroblasts are the skin structure responsible for collagen production! Stimulating them with LED therapy encourages the skin to produce more collagen for a firmer appearance and fewer wrinkles.
The great thing about LED light treatment is it pairs well with all skincare, and can even boost the effects of certain ingredients!
Who is LED Phototherapy Best For?
One of the best things about this kind of LED skin treatment is that it suits all skin types - however, mature skin and acne-prone skin are concerns that benefit from it the most. LED phototherapy is most beneficial for anti-ageing and fighting acne, depending on the wavelength of the light used.
When it comes to anti-ageing, LED light therapy is a valuable tool for boosting your entire routine; alongside ingredients like Retinol and Peptides, it works to stimulate collagen production deep within the skin.
For zapping pesky zits without using potentially irritating spot treatments, blue LED light therapy is the one to reach for. The blue light painlessly zaps away acne-causing bacteria for clearer skin.
