Uncovering the Science Behind Light Emitting Diode (LED) Light Therapy

Uncovering the Science Behind Light Emitting Diode (LED) Light Therapy

The LED therapy is growing in popularity. It has been used for many years, however recently people are using it to improve skin health.

How does it work?

Your skin has the ability to absorb light as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. Therefore, photobiomodulation is the process where light from and LED devise interacts with the mitochondria of the cells, stimulating collagen and elastin production.

What is it good for?

The amber, red, and infrared diodes penetrate the dermis to stimulate the fibroblast cells (common cells that support tissues in the body) which reduces inflammation, increases circulation, accelerates healing and prevents environmental damage. Besides reducing inflammation, LED light therapy can improve anti-aging effects, such as age spots and wrinkles. 

The blue light therapy can target oil glands and make them less active. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.

Is it safe?

LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays and is safe for all skin color and types. There is no down time and some report that it is relaxing and a part of their self care. The treatment typically lasts about 20 minutes.
