Reasons Why LED Light Therapy is An Ideal Treatment for Aging and Acne

Wondering what exactly “LED Light Therapy” is? Well, let us make things easier and clearer to you. PBM Therapy, better known as LED Light Therapy is a relaxing & painless skin-care treatment that works by emitting infrared light in different wavelengths. An LED light bed like-device is used to send light deep into the skin.

Types of LED Light Therapy and their advantages:

1. Red LED Light Therapy

With a wavelength varying from 620nm-700nm, Red LED light therapy is primarily used for anti-aging and helps to restore cellular activity, including the fibroblasts that produce collagen.

Apart from its anti-aging benefits, because of its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production, Red Light therapy also helps strengthen the skin.

2. Blue LED Light Therapy

With a wavelength varying from 405nm- 420nm, Blue Light therapy is basically used for its anti-bacterial benefits and therefore used in acne treatment. At a wavelength of 415nm, a molecule called porphyrin absorbs the blue light.

Bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes contain a rich amount of porphyrin. When the blue light is absorbed by porphyrin, it creates singlet oxygen which is released into the bacteria, eventually killing the bacteria.

3. Amber LED Light Therapy

With wavelength varying from 570nm- 620nm, Amber Light Therapy is effective in the treatment of skin issues like ‘Rosacea’, which causes redness of skin.

Amber light therapy assists in eradicating waste from the skin, increasing cellular growth and boosting lymphatic flow. It is exemplary for sensitive skin because of its calming and soothing effect.

How does LED Light Therapy Work?

Following the micro-needling or microdermabrasion, the LED panels are brought close to the patient’s face and kept a few inches away from the required treatment area. The lights are quite bright, so eye protection is also provided.

Many of us might wonder that wouldn’t the light with such high wavelength cause burns to your skin? Well, let us clear this, one might feel warm on the skin but the warmth is going to be the soothing one. Also, the LED light will not cause any burns or skin damage and is pretty much painless.

Varying from light and skin types, the LED Therapy session might vary from 08 minutes to 15 minutes. Also, talking about how much it is going to cost you, well, every session cost may vary anywhere from $75 to $150.

LED Light therapy is the best possible way and an ideal treatment for people who want to look young. This new technology has been gaining popularity and precisely, one can say that this is also the future of skin-care treatments.
