LED Light Therapy
HOW DOES IT WORK
LED Light Therapy is the use of specific types of light which give off energy that stimulates your cells, thereby increasing the production of collagen and elastin. In turn, this makes your skin firmer, less wrinkled, and younger looking. This is known as LED Light Therapy.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Diodes give off energy in the form of light. These little diodes are compact, durable, powerful, bright, efficient, and when used in combination with LightStim’s patent pending engineering, produce rejuvenating effects on the skin.
LED red and near-infrared light are a “window” of wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. Red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. This effect has been carefully studied in many published reports since 1987.
IS IT SAFE TO USE
LED is a noninvasive approach to working with light, and during the past 10 years, independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wavelength stimulates intercellular communication, resulting in skin rejuvenation.
Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED can also be done on all skin types, regardless of ethnicity. It remains cool and comfortable for the client because it uses spectral light instead of heat to activate the skin’s own biochemical healing processes. The photobiological effect is safe and creates no risk of burning the tissue.
SKIN CONDITIONS IMPROVED BY LED
Tired, aging skin: Softening of lines, folds and wrinkles, healthier circulation, increased moisture and radiance, accelerated skin repair, toned and youthful skin surface, improved elasticity and skin texture as well as stimulating the collagen process.
Hyperpigmentation: age spots, freckles, uneven pigmentation due to sun exposure: Most cases of skin hyperpigmentation even out over time from the use of infrared LED light therapy.
Acne and blemishes: Infrared LED light can assist in the repair of acne and blemishes because it stimulates the skin’s natural healing process.
The number of treatments needed varies with different skin types and conditions. As with any skin care treatment, maintenance is highly recommended to ensure lasting results. On average, a maintenance treatment is suggested every three to four weeks.
