What is LED Light Therapy?
Red and near-infrared light is a “window” of wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep.
What are the benefits of LED Light Therapy?
Red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. The positive effects occur only in injured cells. There is no benefit to healthy cells.
Red Light Therapy
In the anti-aging process, what is important is collagen production, and red light therapy stimulates the collagen within the skin. Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and firmness of your skin, resulting in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The collagen is also the protein that repairs damaged skin cells. You look younger and have a healthier skin. Red light is the “healing light”, it is also used for acne: it reduces the inflammation caused by acne, reduces scarring, sebum and oil production. You look better, your skin is clear.
Blue Light Therapy
The blue light therapy kills the Propionibacterium, acne’s bacteria. This bacterium is one of the causes of acne, and is sensitive to light in a certain range (405 to 420 nm). The bacterium absorbs the light and the light kills the bacteria. Acne vanishes as a result.
