Even NASA has recognized that it is therapeutic for the skin and can help heal wounds. Most researchers agree that light therapy increases production of ATP (the energy engine of cells) and the modulation of reactive oxygen. It may also work by targeting water layers on elastin, reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. LED light therapy is non-invasive, causes no inflammation, and requires no special post-treatment procedures. It is proving to be an effective treatment for aging skin as well as particular conditions such as Rosacea and other skin conditions.

 

Benefits of Red LED Light Therapy include:

Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of age spots and sun damage, acne, increase in collagen, reduction of overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries.  Results are often immediate.

A study to determine the efficacy of LED light therapy (633nm and 830nm) in facial rejuvenation found 52% of subjects showed a 25%-50% improvement in photo aging scores by week 12 after 9 light therapy treatments. 81% of subjects reported a significant improvement in per orbital wrinkles on completion of follow-up. Therefor LED therapy represents and effective and acceptable method of photo rejuvenation.

 

The Blue LED Light attacks PP-9, producing singlet oxygen. This form of oxygen is very toxic to the bacteria that cause acne therefore decreasing acne drastically with absolutely no downtime.

Green light is the calming wavelength of light.

 In addition to reducing redness, the calming effect of this wavelength has been known to have anti-inflammatory properties that can work to reduce hyperpigmentation. The green light also calms damaged skin and reduces pain associated with it. The green light can affect the appearance of these spots and discolorations by affecting the melanocytes that reside in the bottom layer of the epidermis. They reduce the production of these cells which allows the spots and patches to fade over time.

While the green light has a number of uses, as mentioned above, it is primarily used to improve pigmentation that has been caused by the sun and to restore similar damages.
