LED stands for light-emitting diodes and works by emitting light in different wavelengths/spectrums, which have different skincare benefits. During LED therapy, light waves are sent deep into the skin to trigger natural intracellular reactions, similar to the way plants absorb light energy from the sun. Depending on the color of the light, your skin is going to respond differently.
- Yellow light stimulates collagen and elastin, tones and firms loose skin making it perfect for those experiencing volume loss in the face.
- Red light is most commonly used to promote circulation, repair damage and improve skin tone and texture. It also penetrates the skin deeper than most other colors, stimulating fibroblasts to produce more collagen, which results in tighter, firmer, smoother skin.
- Green light works by reducing inflammation and redness, which is great for sensitive redress-prone skin.
- Blue light is shown have anti-bacterial effects on P.acne bacteria which causes breakouts.
