Light-emitting diode (LED) light therapy has recently become more popular in the skincare industry. LED light therapy mainly focuses on skincare, promoting anti-aging effects and reducing inflammation.
The several benefits include an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other stigmata of aging. Other uses of LED light therapy include acne, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, scarring, and sun damage.
Different Types Of LED Light Therapy
The visible light spectrum has different wavelengths, each corresponding to different colors and penetrating the skin to different depths. LED light produces different effects depending on the skin level it penetrates.
The most common frequencies used in LED light therapy are the red and blue wavelengths, which are readily absorbed into the skin and do not contain harmful ultraviolet light. Red light treats the outermost layer of skin, otherwise known as the epidermis.
Blue light therapy, however, focuses on the oil glands in the deeper skin layers. By reducing the amount of oil these glands produce, the skin can become drier, which could lead to fewer acne breakouts.
Which Light Effectively Lifts The Skin?
Also known as photobiomodulation or low-level light therapy, red light therapy uses light-emitting diodes (LED) to safely diffuse red and near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths of light deep into the skin. Here, it penetrates to the cells and into the mitochondria.
Red and infrared light exposure triggers a biochemical reaction within the mitochondrion, allowing it to use oxygen more efficiently to produce ATP. This energy boost allows the body’s various cells to perform much more efficiently.
It also promotes a positive feedback loop within the body: improved blood flow is one of the effects of increased ATP. This, in turn, allows more oxygen to reach the cells, increasing ATP production.
Red light therapy also appears to trigger the activation of stem cells, which are known to play an important role in tissue repair and healing.
In a 2006 study on red light therapy and photoaging skin, subjects received red light therapy treatment over five weeks and were subsequently evaluated after 12 weeks. The vast majority reported significant improvement in softness, smoothness, and firmness and showed improvements in wrinkles.
LED light devices like BLOOM give you the face-lifting benefits of red light therapy alongside other LED benefits.
Do LED Lights Have Side Effects?
The only minor side effects recorded are slight temporary redness at the exposure site and slight eye discomfort because the light emitted is quite bright. These effects usually go away some hours after the treatment- they are temporary, short-term effects.
Frequent(daily) consistent use is recommended to achieve desired results.
