LED light therapy is especially helpful in improving the skin as it relates to sagging, wrinkling skin, acne, and inflammation.
What is LED Light Therapy?
Light emitting diode (LED) light therapy is the use of varying LED wavelengths to assist with
- treating acne
- reduce inflammation
- promote anti-aging effects
LED light therapy has an established history of skin uses. In the 1990's the US Navy seals used LED light therapy to help heal wounds quickly and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues. In esthetics, much research has gone into its use, and it is mainly noted for increasing collagen and tissues. All of which can smooth out your skin and reduce the appearance of damage from age spots, acne, and wrinkles
LED Frequencies and their uses
There are different frequencies, or wavelengths, used with LED light treatment. These include red and blue light frequencies, which don’t contain ultraviolet rays and are readily absorbed into the skin.
Red, or infrared light is used for treating the epidermis, which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to your skin, the epidermis absorbs it and then stimulates collagen proteins.
Blue LED light therapy, targets the sebaceous glands, which are also called oil glands. They’re located beneath your hair follicles. these glands can become overactive, leading to oily skin and acne. Blue light can also kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin, which can help treat severe acne pimples, including cysts and nodules.
Violet light therapy is a combination of red and blue light, so you get both colors in one treatment. This combination helps to treat acne, decrease scarring, and promote anti-inflammatory effects.
What to expect after your treatment
LED light therapy is noninvasive, so no recovery time is required. You should be able to continue with your everyday activities once your treatment is over. At Onyeka Tefari, we suggest that you schedule treatments up to 10 sessions or more to see significant results. Each treatment should be spaced out about a week apart. You may start to see minor results after your first session. Results will be more dramatic and noticeable once you’ve finished all of your treatments.
