The most abundant protein in the body is collagen. It is found in your bones, tissues, blood vessels and skin. As you get older, the production of collagen wanes and deterioration of existing collagen occurs more quickly. The effects on the skin as collagen dissipates are the noticeable signs of aging. The skin becomes thinner, saggy and wrinkled with age. Light therapy can help rebuild collagen levels for anti-aging effects and more youthful skin.
At AuraSpa, we use our LightStim LED beds for light therapy treatments that can enhance collagen levels in the skin. The amber light spectrum, one of the multiple light spectrums emitted from LightStim LEDs, is responsible for stimulating collagen production. This is a natural occurrence in the skin from exposure to light and is meant to help the skin heal. It is safe and does not require any downtime after the treatment.
Benefits of Increasing Collagen
When your skin increases collagen levels, it begins to reverse the evident signs of aging. It becomes fuller, with more volume. Collagen helps repair damaged cells, improve elasticity and smooth lines or wrinkles. With ongoing light therapy treatments, the skin can look more vibrant and younger. Other effects on the skin include fading sun spots, reducing hyperpigmentation and dissipating redness.
Light therapy can be a beneficial anti-aging treatment for your skin, on your face and other areas of the body. Enhancing collagen production is just one of the benefits that can be accomplished with treatment sessions using the LightStim LED beds at AuraSpa. Many people experience less inflammation, joint pain and improved circulation in conjunction with skin benefits for overall wellness.
