What is LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy started as NASA technology. It’s gained quite some traction over recent years in the beauty industry as a non-invasive and pain-free skincare treatment that accelerates the skin’s natural rejuvenation.
Depending on the colour of light used in the treatment, it’s ideal for treating sun damage, rosacea, acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive skin or simply those looking to restore a radiant complexion.
Over time, this therapy offers corrective and long-lasting results, although you’ll likely be able to see and feel a difference after the first session. It’s also a great way to boost mindfulness as your skin is gently soothed and restored - much like a relaxing spa treatment at home.
How does it work?
Light-Emitting Diodes (LED) diffuse photon energy and can release different wavelengths in a range of colours. Each wave penetrates the skin to work at a cellular level, energising each cell to repair and renew itself.
The colour of the light emitted can have different skin health benefits depending on the skin concern:
Red light boosts the production of collagen and calms inflammation
Blue light therapy tackles acne by killing bacteria, clear near infra-red regenerates and soothes the skin
Yellow light rescues and relieves sensitive skin
Green light reduces pigmentation and evens out the skin tone
What devices use LED Light Therapy?
There are a range of specialised devices depending on your concern - the likes of QuasarMD focus on powerful acne-busting blue light therapy whilst Trophy Skin gently rejuvenates the skin with a warming red light.
Other devices offer an all-in-one solution, allowing you to treat multiple concerns and boost your skin’s overall health. The MYSKINBUDDY LED Light Therapy Device uses a combination of Red, Green and Blue LED Light therapy in a compact handset with 6 ready-to-go settings to elevate your skincare routine to the next level.
If you’re looking to emulate a comprehensive facial treatment, try the MZ Skin Light-Therapy Golden Treatment Device. Offering the whole spectrum of light settings, regular use allows you to enhance and protect your skin to have a reveal your natural radiance.
It’s amazing how much light therapy can do for your skin’s wellbeing, and how it can adapt to changes in your complexion too. The MYSKINBUDDY device in particular is great that you can switch up your routine throughout the year to suit each concern, using it across the face and décolleté.
