LED light therapy has gained massive popularity in recent years. From celebs to influencers, everyone is rocking the robotic-looking LED masks as a way to take their skin care game to the next level. But what exactly do LED lights do, and how do they relate to skin care? The list of benefits is long and wildly enticing. Keep scrolling to get the full rundown on how LED light therapy is transforming skin care and how you can get your hands on it!
What Is LED Light Therapy?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode and it works by emitting infrared lights (causing heat) through varying wavelengths and spectrums. But not all lights are created equal, especially when it comes to targeting specific skin care concerns. Different light colors manifest different results in your skin. Such as, red LED light aides in strengthening skin and maximizing cellular structure, as well as targeting oil glands to reduce inflammation-causing substances, cytokines, which are contributing factors in chronic acne cases. Additionally, red LED lights are great for treating skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles. Blue LED lights on the other hand, stimulate the production of oxygen radicals, which are aimed at killing acne related bacterias. Blue LED light works by penetrating deep into the skin, making it a great source for treating cystic acne concerns.
Skin Benefits of LED Light Therapy
So why exactly should you be incorporating LED lights into your routine? Because, the list of benefits speak for themselves. Depending on the light color, LED light therapy has the potential to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce inflammation, improve acne scars, prevent breakouts, promote circulation, stimulate collagen production, and brighten skin. I mean, what more could you want from a skin care treatment?
Even better, you can do it from home. While spas and offices may offer LED light therapy services at a stronger intensity, at-home treatment can be just as effective, more cost efficient, and make for a seriously bad-ass selfie. In addition to easy access and convenience, LED lights are also generally safe for all skin tones and types. Potential side effects can include increased inflammation and redness, so it’s important to check with your doctor about any medication that you are on that could make your skin hyper-sensitive to light, such as acne medications like, Accutane. However, the majority of people don’t experience any negative interactions and are able to carry on with the rest of their day with ease. So really the rewards outweigh the risks with this 21st century skin therapy.
