LED light therapy is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to rejuvenate the skin. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a type of device that emits specific colors of light.
During a LED light facial, a device with LED lights is placed close to the face. The light wavelengths penetrate the skin at various depths and can stimulate different cellular processes. Different colors of light are used for specific skincare concerns:
Red Light: Red light is often used to promote collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture.
Blue Light: Blue light is commonly used to target acne-causing bacteria and can help reduce acne breakouts and inflammation.
Green Light: Green light is known for its calming and soothing properties. It can help even out skin tone, reduce redness, and provide a soothing effect.
Yellow Light: Yellow light is used to improve skin clarity, reduce redness, and promote healing for conditions such as rosacea.
LED light facials are generally painless and require no downtime. They are often performed as a series of sessions for optimal results.
The benefits include an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
