LED light therapy leaves your skin visibly plumper and more radiant after just one treatment, whilst stimulating cellular activity beneath the surface of the skin to create a healthy, long-lasting effect. LED is a safe and effective non-invasive treatment.
What is LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED light therapy is a popular non invasive skin treatment for acne, sun damage, wounds, and other skin problems. The treatment uses varying wavelengths of light to trigger the skin’s natural healing processes to repair the skin.
LED stands for light-emitting diode. These lights have been in use since the 1960s, but people have only recently begun to use them as a skin treatment.
NASA originally developed LED lights for plant growth experiments in space, they found that LEDs have showed promising results in wound healing and human tissue growth.
Different wavelengths of light in LED lights, including blue and red, penetrate the skin at different depths. This penetration may trigger biological processes that help the skin rejuvenate and heal.
What colours can be used in LED light therapy?
There are several colours that can be used and I have found myself the most beneficial are :
Experts believe that blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil-producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil, possibly improving acne symptoms.
Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation.
Destroys p.acne bacteria
Minimises redness and irritation
Soothing and calming
Beneficial for psoriasis, rosacea
Relieves tension and headaches
Reduces active acne
Reduces inflammation and swelling
Normalises sebum production
Reduces large pores
Red LED light may improve scarring and signs of aging, such as wrinkles. It may do this by acting on fibroblasts, which are skin cells that are responsible for collagen production. Collagen is a protein in the skin and other connective tissues. It plays a role in skin healing. The body produces less collagen as a person ages, which causes the skin to show signs of aging. Red light also reduces skin inflammation.

Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. It is the essential protein used to repair and replace damaged tissue. It is this substance that holds cells together with a high degree of elasticity. Tissue without collagen is stringy and lacks substance When a person reaches their 60s, the body may produce little or no collagen
