Light therapy is a non-invasive and rejuvenating skin treatment. Light therapy uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) which are special lights that only give off light at a certain wavelength or color. These light waves can penetrate deep into the skin to cause reactions in the skin.
Red and Blue Light Therapy
The two main colors are red light and blue light. Red light therapy treats the epidermis which is the outer layer of skin. When the light is applied to the skin, the epidermis absorbs it and stimulates collagen proteins. Red light therapy can work as an anti-aging therapy by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles with the production of new collagen. Red light therapy is also anti-inflammatory and could improve circulation.
Blue light therapy targets the oil glands which are located beneath the hair follicles. Oily skin and acne are the results of oil glands becoming overactive. Blue light therapy can kill acne-causing bacteria beneath the skin. Blue light and red light are used together to help treat acne, decrease scarring, and promote inflammatory reduction.
