LED light therapy is a painless skin care treatment that has so many benefits, specifically stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne. LED uses an array of bright light-emitting diodes that send low-level light energy into the deepest layers of your skin.
Red light stimulates cellular activity to produce collagen and give your skin a plump look. This helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, and reduce the redness that could be the result of aggressive IPL or laser treatments. These results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, IPL, or last, however, it’s gentler, natural, and less expensive.
Blue light works by killing Propionibacterium acnes, which is the bacteria that lives below the surface of the skin and is responsible for acne.
Both red and blue light LEDs are effective when used repeatedly. It is important to get this treatment every month or two and can be a part of larger treatments such as a HydraFacial.
Some other interesting points about LED therapy is that it can help treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD) in winter months. Also, your eyes can’t be hurt by LED light, so they do not have to be covered.
These treatments are a good choice for those who want to boost collagen or treat mild to moderate acne. This works best in conjunction with a regular skin care routine that you can develop with me.
