Now, before you go unscrewing lightbulbs in the name of radiance, allow us to break down the colorful benefits of this magical light therapy, plus tell you how to pick the right LED device to take your skin from dull to dazzling.
FIRST AND FOREMOST: WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED stands for light emitting diode. Originally created for NASA (we told you it was legit), LED therapy eventually made its way into the skincare world, thanks to its revolutionary and game-changing results.
At its core, LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive and painless treatment that harnesses the power of light to address a myriad of skin concerns. It works by emitting a small spectrum of light into the layers of your skin to help improve its overall appearance. LED devices can generate several different wavelengths—which produce visible colors—that penetrate the skin at various levels to deliver you desired result.
THE COLORS OF BEAUTY: WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF EACH LED COLOR?
RED LIGHT | As the color of passion and energy, red light takes center stage in LED therapy. This color is known to stimulate collagen production, which helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red light is also believed to improve blood circulation, promoting a healthy and rosy-looking complexion. So, if you dream of plumper, firmer skin, this ruby-hued light is your ultimate ally.
BLUE LED LIGHT | When it comes to the battle of pesky breakouts and acne, blue light therapy might just be your skincare superhero. Blue light has antimicrobial properties that target acne-causing bacteria to help reduce inflammation and prevent future flare-ups. Say goodbye to stubborn blemishes and hello to a clear, confident complexion.
GREEN LED LIGHT | If uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation has been holding you back, green light therapy is here to save the day. This colored light helps reduce the production of melanin to even out your skin tone and fade those unwelcome dark spots. Embrace the green light, and watch your complexion transform into an even, radiant canvas.
ORANGE LED LIGHT |In need of a vibrant pick-me-up? Allow us to introduce you to orange light therapy. Known to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate the production of new skin cells, orange LED light helps revitalize dull skin to leave it looking fresh and glow-y.
