WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED (light emitting diode) technology, a scientific process that uses wavelengths in the visible light spectrum to send calibrated packets of light into the dermal layer, setting off a frenzy of cellular activity to produce softer, more youthful looking skin.
Promotes collagen and elastin production and oxygenation for up to 180 days after treatment.
Increases cellular activity, calming and soothing.
Anti-inflammatory, strengthens capillary walls and Rosacea.
Energizing and rejuvenating skin.
Promotes intercellular communication.
Purifying antibacterial, blemished and oily skin.
Who would have thought that scientific experiments conducted by NASA on how to grow plants in space would have lead to the most significant break through the beauty industry has ever seen.
Like most accidental discoveries NASA were not looking at ways to reduce wrinkles or make women look 10 years younger but were surprised to discover that the LED lights they were experimenting with as a means to grow plants in space helped astronauts recover faster from injuries sustained during weightlessness.
LED activates skin cells with pulses of low level, non thermal light energy. The cell converts light energy into fuel (much like photosynthesis) in turn stimulating the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin. More research confirmed that LED could speed healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production, by as much as 200% within just 24 hours of treatment!
Given LED photo-stimulation can provide the skin cells with the energy to heal faster and produce more collagen it makes sense that it would also be able to fix minor damage. Trials were undertaken on sun damaged, pigmented and wrinkled skin. One trial published in the highly respected journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that a 20 minute LED treatment for 12 weeks had a positive smoothing effect in 83% of subjects and improved skin tone for an incredible 91%! Another study in the US found that it had a positive effect on crow’s feet for 81% of the test volunteers.
Functions of each color:
Red light (650 – 730 nm): Will stimulate the production of collagen. Collagen is an essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. Best for fine lines, and will also help to reduce large pores.
Blue light (430 – 450nm): Bacteria in acne contain Porphyrins; the blue light is able to kill Porphyrins due to the high affinity with this wave length. The blue light furthermore has a calming action which is very effective for hypersensitivity.
Yellow light (560– 590nm): Yellow is a warm colour that can stimulate both the lymphatic and the nervous system; It is used to tone muscles and to boost your immune system and furthermore, helps to relax and restore the balance of the skins sensitivity.
Green light (525 -550nm): The balance of the green light can balance color pigment,reduce fine lines, nutrient aging skin, speed up the healing process of the wound, and lighten scars
