LED light therapy! You've heard of it, read about it in magazines, celebrities use it, and see it on the menu at your favorite spa. But what is this therapy and what are the true benefits of LED light therapy?
LED light therapy for skin covers precise wavelengths that have been scientifically proven to penetrate the skin tissues where the body absorbs them easily.
Most of these skin and body reactions don't happen overnight but require consistency and patience with treatment. While some changes are immediately visible in many people, such as brightening skin tone, shrinking pores, and reducing redness.
Blue LEDs with 415 nanometers have a completely different effect on the skin than their yellow, red, and infrared counterparts. Blue wavelengths have been shown to be antibacterial. Because these wavelengths penetrate the skin and are absorbed by acne, they have the unique ability to kill the acne-causing bacteria.
When the skin is treated with blue light therapy to kill bacteria, followed by red light therapy, which speeds up the healing process and reduces inflammation, pimples begin to disappear and skin becomes brighter and clearer. This is a powerful duo in fighting acne.
LED light therapy is a safe skin treatment that offers a natural alternative to treat many skin ailments. With time and patience, you can expect visible improvements to your skin without resorting to more invasive and potentially dangerous options.
