LED light therapy is a treatment that uses LED lights to improve skin health.
There are two different colours of led light that have been shown to be the most beneficial for skin: blue and red.
In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of each type of LED light and how you can start using them in your own skincare routine!
Light has a biological effect on the human body.
The sun, is a full spectrum light and help regulate our sleep cycle, synthesises Vitamin D, regulates our circadian rhythm and can make us feel happier.
The most common wavelengths used in skincare are blue, red, and near-infrared (NIR) light.
Red and blue light therapy using LED devices are commonly used to improve skin health, although the two wavelength groups have very different effects.
Red light therapy is a term that encompasses both red and NIR light. Red light is most often used for treating surface conditions: fine lines and wrinkles, photoaging, chronic skin disorders, and hair loss.
Their most notable effect on overall skin wellbeing is increasing collagen production.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and provides our skin with it's elasticity and structure.
The red light wavelengths penetrate deep into muscles, joints, and even the brain to support the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Their main positive effect is reducing inflammation deeper in the body.
Blue light wavelengths are shorter than red light wavelengths and therefore cannot penetrate the skin beyond the upper skin layers.
Blue LED light is most commonly used to treat acne because it has antibacterial properties that can kill the bacteria that cause breakouts that are on the skin.
Blue light LED can be an effective treatment for surface skin conditions such as acne and solar keratoses.
Both blue and red LED light therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, and have no side effects.
LED light therapy is a great way to improve your skin health with no downtime and is a must to implement into your ongoing skincare routine.
