LED Phototherapy

What does LED light treatment do?
LED light therapy is mainly focused on skincare, promoting anti-aging effects and reducing inflammation. The purported benefits include an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other stigmata of aging
LED – which stands for Light Emitting Diode – is clinically proven to rejuvenate the skin, reduce inflammation and improve the overall health of the skin’s natural barrier. It has the added benefit of being safe for all skin types, ages and concerns, and can therefore be used alongside any other skin treatment or procedure.

What are the different colours and their benefits?

Different colours of LED light have different effects on our skin. So the colour of LED light we need for our treatment depends on what we want to achieve.

Here are the LED light therapy color meanings to help you understand which LED colour you need:

Blue (415nm)

Targets and destroys p.acne bacteria found in the sebaceous glands, which reduces bacteria and the forming of blemishes or pustules. It also regulates oil production, balancing an oily skin or t-zone, and increases blood circulation, which helps to eliminate toxins and provide nutrients to the skin. Blue (415nm) light has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin, which reduces healing time and also prevents post inflammatory scarring.

Red (633nm)

Stimulates collagen and elastin within the dermis, increases blood flow and oxygenation to the skin, all while delivering nutrients and antioxidants to repair. Increases regeneration so that skin looks and feels plumper, brighter, with improved density in the dermis to support the ageing process.

Near-Infrared (830nm)

Penetrates deep into the skin and can reach the bone, increasing cellular activity so that our cells behave in a more responsive manner. Increases the production collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to maintain the skin’s structure for a more youthful appearance.

Near-Infrared (830nm) also reduces inflammation and pain by increasing blood flow and tissue oxygenation, supports cellular health and repairs damage. In terms of skin tone, it regulates the production of melanin and increases antioxidants and nutrients within the skin. It also balances hormones such as cortisol (the stress hormone), serotonin (the feel-good hormone) and melatonin (our sleep hormone).
