LED therapy has grown in popularity in the past few years. LED therapy promises to fight acne and signs of aging with the use of light technology. These futuristic gadgets have been used amongst celebs. How exactly can a device that emit bright lights help you get a clearer and brighter complexion?
LED works by emitting infrared lights in different wavelengths/ spectrums, which have different skincare benefits. Amber light stimulates collagen and elastin. Red light is most commonly used to promote circulation. White light penetrates the deepest and works to tighten and reduce inflammation Blue light kills bacteria. During LED therapy, devices send light waves deep into the skin to trigger natural intracellular reactions. Depending on the light, your skin is going to respond differently. If RED, your skin responds by building, strengthening, and maximizing cellular structure. Red light is also believed to target oil glands to reduce cytokines, which cause inflammation and play a role in chronic acne.
These treatments are usually add-ons to other treatments, but you can get LED therapy by itself. Therapists typically recommend light therapy every one to two weeks when it is add-on to other treatments such as micro-needling, laser treatments and etc… If you are getting LED therapy for prep of important events, they recommend two to three times a week for a course of four to six weeks. Costs are varied but standalone treatment will cost round 60 to 80 US dollars. More and more brands are coming out with at-home LED systems so that you can treat these skin problems on your own.
