For decades, you have been told to protect your skin from sunlight to prevent damage that can lead to cancer. UV rays in certain light can harm the skin and is one of the largest causes of skin cancer and aging. However, other types of light energy can heal and benefit the health of the skin. LED light therapy offers red, blue, yellow and green light wavelengths that can improve your skin’s health and appearance. Here are six ways LED light therapy can benefit your skin.
Blue LED light therapy can be beneficial for those with excessive acne breakouts. Blue light can impact the sebaceous glands in the skin that release oils that can cause acne, reducing their output. Blue light can also kill bacteria that cause acne, helping reduce breakouts.
Incisions from surgery or other wounds to the skin can heal quicker with the use of light therapy. Amber light can stimulate collagen and other wavelengths can also improve skin healing.
As the skin ages, it can lose collagen and elasticity. Stimulating collagen and healing can help tighten aging skin for a more toned, youthful appearance.
Reduce Pigmentation or Redness
Age spots, hyperpigmentation and other skin redness can be reduced with collagen induction. LED light therapy can be used to fade skin pigmentation issues and redness caused by sun damage and aging for a more even skin tone.
Lines and Wrinkles Treatments
Stimulating collagen production with LED light therapy can help add volume to the skin and smooth away early lines and wrinkles on the skin.
LED light therapy can improve circulation that rejuvenates the skin cells. This can improve the radiance and health of the skin, giving your skin a glow at any age.
