LED Light Therapy
What is LED light therapy?
Led is short for light-emitting diode therapy and is also commonly known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy whereby specific wavelengths of light energy are applied to tissue for the purposes of improving certain skin conditions, hair loss and in some cases facilitating pain relief.
LED light therapy can drastically rejuvenate your skin without zero downtime or discomfort. This treatment helps reverse years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne, and acne scarring.
Types of LED Light Therapy
Both of these LED light therapies offer clinical strength skincare treatments that are produced via different wavelengths of light such as red, blue and infrared.
Red Light Therapy
Red light is able to penetrate deeper into the skin than blue light can and as such, is able to boost blood flow that in turn increases the production of collagen and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) thereby enhancing the skin’s tone and texture. As the skin cells begin to regenerate faster, fine lines and wrinkles are either drastically reduced or reversed altogether revealing a more youthful and vibrant look.
Blue Light Therapy
This light therapy is better known for its penetration of the pores to either reduce or eliminate bacteria that promote excessive oil production and blemishes. Blue light therapy is also ideal for many different skin conditions such as rosacea and sun damage.
Red Light Vs Blue Light
The main difference between the two light therapies is that they are at different wavelengths. Blue light penetrates a little more superficially at the pore level to eliminate bacteria whereas red light targets the surface level of the skin increasing collagen production and drastically reducing inflammation.
