LED LIGHT THERAPY
LED Light Therapy

 

Originally developed by NASA for stimulating plant growth and treating wounds in astronauts, LED Light Therapy has been embraced by skincare professionals for its remarkable benefits. This innovative therapy harnesses different wavelengths of light to target various skin conditions. Similar to how sunlight nourishes plants, LED light penetrates the skin at a cellular level, initiating specific intra- and intercellular reactions.

 

LED, or Light Emitting Diode, Therapy uses a range of wavelengths and spectrums to expose the skin to carefully selected colors of light, effectively addressing a wide array of skin concerns and promoting repair and rejuvenation. By improving the skin's biological cell cycle, stimulating collagen synthesis, and enhancing the production of structural tissue and elastin, LED light waves elicit specific reactions in the skin, yielding desired results. This therapy accelerates the skin's natural processes, facilitating its ability to function optimally.

LED LIGHT COLORS

Red (or infrared) LED Light Therapy (620–750 nm)

By penetrating beyond the skin's surface, red light therapy stimulates increased blood flow, fostering healing, rejuvenation, and collagen production. Theoretically, this heightened collagen production leads to smoother, fuller-looking skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. Red light therapy accelerates tissue recovery and rejuvenation by activating genes associated with protection, anti-apoptosis, antioxidant properties, and cell proliferation. The result is skin that appears supple, lifted, and youthful. This therapy reduces inflammation, enhances circulation, and imparts a healthier glow to the skin. Additionally, red light therapy is utilized in the treatment of scarring and rosacea.

Blue LED Light Therapy (450–495 nm)

Blue light therapy is a common approach for addressing acne concerns. This treatment targets the sebaceous glands, also known as oil glands, which can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne. The principle behind Blue LED Light Therapy is to reduce the activity of these oil glands, ultimately diminishing acne-causing bacteria, specifically Propionibacterium acnes, or P. acnes, which contribute to inflammation. By generating a high-energy form of oxygen, Blue LED Light Therapy effectively combats bacteria in the skin, making it particularly useful for treating cysts and nodules. Additionally, this therapy boasts a calming effect, making it highly effective for hypersensitivity. Blue light therapy is also employed for addressing sun-damaged skin and managing the growth of skin cancer lesions. It aids in the removal of precancerous and cancerous skin lesions that have not spread to other areas of the body.

Purple LED Light Therapy (380–450 nm)

Purple light is a blend of red and blue lights, offering the combined benefits of both wavelengths. This versatile LED light is particularly beneficial for clients dealing with premature aging concerns and adult acne. Purple LED Light Therapy aids in eliminating toxins from the skin, reducing inflammation, enhancing healing and blood circulation, minimizing acne and acne marks, stimulating collagen production, promoting cell regeneration, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Cyan LED Light Therapy (470 nm)

This therapy alleviates acne, soothes irritated and inflamed skin, balances oily skin, and reduces the size of capillaries beneath the skin's surface. Cyan light also enhances protein and collagen synthesis in the skin. This invigorating light stimulates the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate, also known as cellular energy) and cellular metabolism, promoting healthier skin function.

Green LED Light Therapy (495–570 nm)

Green light therapy is commonly used to address skin pigmentation damage caused by excessive exposure to the sun's UV rays. It is particularly effective in reducing the appearance of sun spots, age spots, freckles, liver spots, and reddish or brown patches. In addition to these common forms of skin discoloration, green light therapy also targets various other types of hyperpigmentation and melanin-related issues associated with aging. The treatment lightens affected areas of the skin, resulting in the gradual fading of spots and discolorations, thus promoting a healthier, more youthful-looking complexion. Furthermore, by regulating water and oil levels, green light therapy effectively alleviates skin stress and serves an anti-aging purpose.

Yellow LED Light Therapy (570–590 nm)

Yellow light therapy provides a calming and soothing effect, making it an excellent treatment option for sensitive skin and conditions like rosacea. It effectively soothes irritated skin, reduces inflammation, and diminishes redness. Additionally, yellow light flushes out toxins, promotes collagen formation and skin elasticity, and accelerates the healing process by stimulating the production of red blood cells while minimizing UV sun damage. This therapy enhances the exchange of oxygen to cells, facilitates lymphatic drainage by boosting energy in skin cells, improves rough skin texture, and strengthens immunity. Moreover, yellow light therapy reduces the appearance of tiny blood vessels on the nose and face, contributing to a more even complexion.

White LED Light Therapy (390-700 nm)

White light therapy offers extensive rejuvenating benefits and effectively addresses various skin concerns. It serves as an exceptional treatment for scars, including those resulting from acne, cuts, and scratches. White LED Light Therapy is also effective in reducing and eliminating sun damage, sun spots, sagging skin, and hyperpigmentation. By penetrating the skin, it accelerates the metabolism of active tissue, facilitating the breakdown of blemishes, promoting skin tightening, reducing inflammation, and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The result is smoother, healthier-looking skin with a radiant glow.
