LED Therapy

What you need to know

Red/Blue LED light, Electromagnetic stimulation, Heating and micro vibration
LEDs are light sources releasing energy in the form of photons. They release long wavelengths of light that stimulate cells to aid in healing. The purported benefits include an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin, increase cell vitality, promote the growth of fibroblasts and accelerate the blood circulation which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, scarring, pigmentation and sun damage.
LED light therapy is non-invasive and thus carries few risks with no downtime and it can be used on all skin types.
The most common frequencies used in LED light therapy are the red and blue wavelengths, which are readily absorbed into the skin and do not contain harmful ultraviolet light.
Red light therapy is also known as photo biomodulation (PBM), low level light therapy (LLLT), bio stimulation, photonic stimulation or light box therapy. Red light is used to treat the outermost layer of skin, with wavelengths range between 630-880nm, otherwise known as the epidermis, penetrating about 8-10 millimetres into the skin. It is thought that when this layer of skin absorbs infrared light, the fibroblast cells that are responsible for the production of collagen proteins are then stimulated. The increase in collagen production can make the skin look smoother, which can mitigate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Blue light, on the other hand, targets the oil glands located in the deeper layers of skin. By reducing the amount of oil that these glands produce, the skin can become drier which in turn could lead to fewer acne breakouts.
The Electromagnetic Stimulation (EMS) uses pain-free micro-currents to expand and contract muscles in a targeted area which makes muscle to tone and strengthen. It’s function gently lifts and tones your skin, upping your collagen and elastin production, improving blood circulation. Your body uses these building blocks to restructure scaffolding under the skin’s surface, remodelling from within. The result is more elastin fibres and collagen thickness.
Hot temperatures or heat therapy increases the blood flow in the skin, allowing oxygen and nutrients to move through blood vessels which is essential for the regrowth of damaged tissue and for the stimulation of fibroblasts. Heat is also known to increase the skin permeability, which results in better absorption of following skincare appliances.
