Led Light Therapy
What is LED Light Therapy?
Photo rejuvenation or LED Light Therapy is the use of various colours of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that create an anti-ageing effect on the skin. Exact wavelengths of light emitted from LED’s stimulate and energize cellular activity, which in turn creates collagen and elastin for Anti-Ageing benefits. LED Light Therapy has become recognized as one of the safest, quickest, and most affordable ways to achieve younger-looking skin. Research undertaken by NASA on the effects of light on skin and plants found that four colours have a visible effect on human skin.
Red Light has been shown to be ideal for minimising the visible appearance of ageing, so is perfect for mature skin, damaged skin, and just about everyone else, and has also been shown to speed up the skin’s healing process which can be beneficial for helping with wounds and scars.
Yellow Light has been shown to be ideal for increasing the skin’s tonacity and strength by helping build up the underlying tissue so it is perfect for skin that needs tightening, including open pores.
Green Light has been shown to be ideal for minimising sun damage and redness, and aids in calming and desensitising the skin. It is also ideal for minimising pigmentation.
Blue light has been shown to be ideal for clearing congestion and acne as blue light kills the P. Acne Bacteria, and it is perfect for skin prone to breakout.
Is LED Light Therapy a laser?
The LED Light Therapy is not a laser treatment which is why it is safe for salon use. Lasers utilize a highly focused and coherent beam of a specific light frequency, and can generate enormous heat and energy at the focal point. Light from LEDs is not focused, is non-coherent, and generates no heat. LED Light Therapy is non-invasive, with no down time, requires no surgery, no harsh chemicals, no lasers, no numbing cream, or recovery time.
LED Light therapy works, it’s affordable it takes just 21 minutes. LED Light Therapy is safe for all skin types and ages.
Currently researchers & scientists agree that LEDs are effective in generating a response within living tissue and hence has a therapeutic effect if used properly. NASA has produced the best research documentation to date supporting the effectiveness of LEDs to stimulate plants and human tissue.
