DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN NATURALLY REDUCE THE SIGNS OF AGING AND TREAT ACNE THROUGH THE POWER OF LIGHT?
During my late teens in Germany and later as an adult living in New York City, I vividly recall receiving LED treatment from a dermatologist for my facial skin concerns. The first time it was in a medical setting, while the second time was in a medical spa. On both occasions, my skin issues appeared visibly reduced following the treatments.
HOW DID LED COME ABOUT?
The safe and natural low-level-light therapy (LED) approach, originally created by NASA to aid astronauts who might sustain injuries or fall ill on prolonged space expeditions, is now utilized to address several skin and pain conditions, including wrinkles, aging skin, acne, and pain. The treatment employs the appropriate wavelength of light to achieve optimal outcomes.
Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly uses wavelengths in LED light therapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits.
HOW DOES LED LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
Phototherapy, also referred to as light therapy or low-level light therapy, utilizes specific wavelengths of light energy to stimulate therapeutic benefits for various conditions in the skin or tissue. This clinically validated technique is gaining increasing recognition in mainstream medicine, with dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and pain professionals using it as a non-invasive therapeutic modality for skin and wound healing and pain relief.
High-intensity light-emitting diodes (LEDs) harness particular wavelengths of light to induce a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue, similar to how plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy. LED phototherapy has been shown to enhance circulation, expedite tissue repair, reduce acne bacteria, alleviate inflammation, improve skin tone, texture, and clarity, minimize under-eye wrinkles, and relieve muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis-related pain.
Studies have demonstrated that cells absorb photons of light, which are transformed into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy form utilized by cells. The resulting ATP elevation powers various metabolic processes, such as synthesizing DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products necessary for repairing or regenerating cell components, promoting mitosis or cell proliferation, and restoring homeostasis. Simply put, the LED phototherapy source augments the energy of compromised cells, enhancing their performance.
For instance, fibroblast cells, which contribute to connective tissue formation, increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue, improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and accelerating wound healing.
IS THERE SOCIAL DOWNTIME? DOES IT HURT?
LED light therapy sessions are painless, non-invasive, and entail no downtime, making them safe for all skin types. In fact, the therapy is quite soothing.
Research has also shown that red light therapy can enhance sleep quality.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHICH LED DEVICE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
With the abundance of LED light devices available on the market, it can be challenging to determine which ones will produce the desired results and give you radiant skin. The optimal options are devices that have received FDA clearance and emit polychromatic light, simultaneously providing blue (405 nm to 470 nm), red (630 nm to 700 nm), and near-infrared (880nm) light energy to safely treat the skin.
BLUE penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill c.Acnes bacteria.
RED reaches into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photobiostimulation of fibroblasts.
NEAR-INFRARED penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and attenuates pain.
WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED TREATMENT GUIDELINE?
ANTI-AGE - red light
The wavelength of red light ranges from 630 nm to 700 nm, enabling it to penetrate the dermal layer and activate the fibroblast cells residing therein. This stimulation prompts the production of collagen and elastin fibers.
Recommended treatment plan:
ACNE - blue light
With its many forms, multiple levels of severity, and wide range of triggers, acne can be one of the most frustrating skin conditions. Fortunately, combining existing treatments with LED light therapy can unlock a number of benefits that could produce life-changing results.
Blue light, which has a wavelength between 405 and 470 nm, can trigger a response in more superficial cells within the epidermis, including the acne causing bacteria.
Recommended treatment plan:
ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS WHERE LED MAY NOT BE USED?
LED therapy is clinically proven to be safe, and has achieved “no significant risk status” for human trials by the FDA. Contraindications for using Low Level Light Therapy are few and most clients can safely enjoy the benefits.
Over the breast or stomach of a breast feeding or pregnant person.
Persons with epilepsy or seizure disorder.
Over known cancer tumors or metastasis.
If taking steroidal medications.
On infants or children.
Clients frequently express interest in obtaining their own LED device for home use after undergoing a few sessions with a service, given the many benefits and frequency of use. If you are interested in this option, simply inform us, and we will assist you in selecting the most suitable LED panel for your requirements.
