LED skincare therapy
Physicians and other healthcare workers have long known the benefits of light, the problem has been how to get the proper intensity and correct spectrums needed without burning the patient to a crisp! Because of their inherently low operating temperatures, LED arrays can be positioned area close to the targeted area, even contacting the skin without burning.
Safe non-surgical anti-aging treatments
By utilizing different wavelengths of the color spectrum (nanometers), researchers are finding different applications for different colors, for instance 420 nm blue has been found to kill the bacteria in skin that helps breed acne, while other combinations of colors increase collagen production. (625 nm red, 940 nm infra red, 420 nm blue and 590 nm amber) .This is not a new science in fact NASA has been studying the effects of LED light on astronauts for many years.
“This technology was discovered by NASA initially and has been used to treat wounds in outer space as a result of it's ability to produce collagen and heal tissue. Research has been conducted over a period of 5+years. They have since learned that "extreme" super luminous diodes (vs. super luminous diodes used in various other systems ) can increase collagen production by 5 fold.”
Detailed explanation of how LED light interacts with skin tissue
“The great thing about LED skin treatment compared to other methods of skin rejuvenation is that LED uses the body’s own natural processes to rejuvenate your skin. It is a totally natural form of non surgical face lift and is very appealing compared to facial surgery, laser resurfacing or other techniques which damage the skin and cause pain.”
Zero side effects reported
LED skin therapy has no known side effects, unlike other light therapies which can cause reddening, blistering or other discomforts.
