Light exposure therapy uses natural light, or light from a light-emitting device to deliver health or cosmetic benefits to the recipient. Devices such as lasers, light-emitting diodes (LED), fluorescent lights, and diachronic lights can be used to achieve benefits that range from pain management to wrinkle reduction. The Following discusses LED advanced light therapy and its cosmetic benefits for skin.
The Cosmetic Benefits of LED Therapy for Skin
Skin treatments compose one of the largest submarkets of the cosmetics industry. From creams that moisturize to scrubs that exfoliate, the number of treatments that promote healthy skin seems endless, but many skin treatments only offer a single benefit. To receive multiple benefits, consumers must invest in several treatments, or use a single treatment that offers multiple benefits, such as LED therapy. LED treatments offer the following benefits for skin:
Reduces the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As the skin ages, the production of collagen and elastin gradually decreases, causing fine lines and wrinkles to form. LED therapy can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by activating fibroblast cells that produce collagen and elastin-proteins that supplies the epidermis with tone and elasticity, respectively.
Reduces Excess Melanin
Melanin helps protect skin from sun damage, but the over-production of melanin could lead to brown spots that cause skin to appear splotchy. LED light exposure therapy can reduce excess melanin and leave skin looking clearer than it has in years. Advanced light therapy helps resolve melanism by reducing the production of melanin.
Decreases the Appearance of Scars
Because it reduces redness and inflammation, LED therapy can decrease the appearance of scars, sometimes making them practically invisible. The therapy can reduce scars caused by accidents, medical procedures, and aesthetic treatments.
Reduces Pore Size
Reducing pore size has become a mission for those who have oversized pores that encourage the formation of blackheads, but finding a therapy that works effectively can be difficult. Because it increases the tautness of skin by increasing the production of collagen and elastin, LED therapy is an excellent way to permanently reduce oversized pores.
Improves Sun Damaged Skin
A small amount of sun exposure can give skin a healthy glow, but too much sun exposure over several years could cause your skin to age prematurely through the development of wrinkles and sunspots. Because it improves the metabolic function in skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, LED therapy can reduce the effects of sun damage.
Various types of blemishes can be reduced or eliminated with LED treatments, including pimples, abrasions, cuts, and blemishes from eczema. LED therapy improves blemishes by increasing circulation to the skin, improving the metabolic function in skin, reducing inflammation and redness, and increasing the nutritional elements in skin.
LED light exposure therapy is an affordable way to receive multiple skin benefits in a single cosmetic treatment. If melanism, sun damage, acne, oversized pores, or fine lines and wrinkles are compromising your skin quality, receiving regular sessions of advanced light therapy can help.
