When you first hear about LED Light Therapy, you may ask yourself how exactly these little lights can do your body any good. In fact, LED Light Therapy is a proven way to improve skin health, and different shades of LED light are used to treat different conditions. For example, blue LED light can be used to treat acne. Pretty amazing!
An LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin. Certain wavelengths emitted from the diode have therapeutic properties. This type of skin therapy was originally developed as a way to heal wounds and prevent scarring after surgery.
When an LED emits the right wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of the skin convert that light energy into something called ATP, or adenosine triphosphate. Cells in the dermis layer of the skin use ATP to produce collagen and elastin. By using an LED in the proper wavelength, the cells get the “juice” they need to start producing collagen and elastin at higher levels.
LED Light Therapy can be used to:
- Reduce fine lines
- Reduce wrinkles
- Improve uneven skin tones
- Reduce the size of pores
- Brighten the skin
LED Light Therapy has proven itself through conclusive studies. This isn’t some fly-by-night treatment that someone came up with in their basement. Clinicians all over the world use this therapy to successfully treat their patient’s skin conditions.
Even better, and unlike other treatments, LED Light Therapy doesn’t require any downtime. It is something you can literally do on a lunch break from work. Whether you are prepping for a wedding or another special event, or you just want to treat your skin to something special, consider LED Light Therapy, a procedure we proudly offer at Living Well Dallas.
