LED Therapy and Its Ability to Reduce Wrinkles

What Is LED Therapy

LED, which stands for Light Emitting Diode, is a treatment that utilizes light to promote growth and improvement in many living things. LED therapy was created in the early 1960s as a means for NASA to grow plants in space. However, this therapy has since evolved, and LED therapy is now used to promote collagen production in the skin, which diminishes fine lines and wrinkles. LED therapy used on the skin also improves the clarity of the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria. LED therapy is popular because it is not only effective but also causes no pain, nor is downtime necessary. LED therapy is also safe for regular use, as it does not contain ultraviolet rays, which are known for their harmful effects.

Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles

The development of fine lines and wrinkles can be quite distressing for some people. This is why there are a number of anti-aging products currently on the market to combat this issue. However, many of the over-the-counter beauty products aren’t effective at treating this common issue. One popular reason that people opt to undergo LED therapy is due to its ability to minimize the appearance of these skin issues that can make a person appear older. LED therapy works by promoting the growth of elastin and collagen, which fills out wrinkles and fine lines, making them appear less prominent. Less prominent lines and wrinkles, of course, make a person appear more youthful, which is the overall goal.

Reduce Acne

Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that causes the skin to break out in pimples and can have several causes, from hormones to infections of the follicles, and even oily, clogged pores. Just about everyone experiences acne at one time or another during their lifetime, and regardless of when it might manifest, it can be a source of great embarrassment.

While some people believe that acne is only a condition experienced during adolescence, it’s been proven to develop in people of all ages. Regardless of their skincare regime,  acne can become quite problematic in some cases. Fortunately, this common but sometimes difficult-to-treat condition is another popular skin issue that responds well to LED therapy. There are two key wavelengths used in LED therapy that can significantly reduce acne: red and blue. The red wavelength helps rid the skin of acne by minimizing inflammation, and the blue wavelength eliminates the pimple-promoting bacteria.

Healthier Skin Thanks to Collagen

Another popular reason why people opt for LED therapy is for the promotion of overall healthier skin. For those who have sun damage skin, skin that appears more sensitive than in the past, or skin that has a variety of problems, decreased collagen can be the cause. Collagen is a protein that is present in the body, in both the skin and the connective tissues. Collagen is rudimental to the overall structure of the body. It’s important for a variety of reasons, including for keeping the skin looking supple and youthful. Natural collagen production decreases with age, which can lead to these skin problems and more.  Fortunately, collagen can reverse these common skin problems, and LED skin therapy increases the production of collagen. Therefore, those who undergo the LED treatment are typically quite pleased with this procedure’s ability to treat facial wrinkles.
