LED Light Therapy – A NASA Skin Treatment

LED light therapy is a non-invasive procedure done with panels of red and/or blue lights. It delivers low-level pulses of light up to three times brighter than the sun to activate skin cells. It was first researched by NASA for use in the U.S. Space Program, as its treatments are non-invasive yet highly effective.

Red LED Light Therapy & Anti-Ageing

Red LED Light is able to penetrate deeply into skin tissue. It thus stimulates cellular regeneration to create collagen & elastin. Collagen helps plump up the skin while elastin keeps the skin firm, reducing fine lines & wrinkles. It also promotes healing, blood circulation and lymphatic activity.

Blue LED Light Therapy & Anti-Acne

Medical-grade blue LED light has been proven effective in reducing acne by killing bacteria. Coupled with red LED light which can reduce inflammation, this combination is a documented therapy for acne control.

IPL / Laser Treatments VS LED Light Therapy

Most other light-based treatments such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser treatments rely on thermal injuring to the skin’s dermal layers.  This includes blood vessels, nerve endings and such to create changes in the skin’s appearance. LED Treatments don’t rely on thermal energy, being able to produce a diffuse & uniform light that penetrates more deeply without causing tissue damage.
