LED LIGHT THERAPY-
Is Led Light Therapy the Fountain of Youth?
By now you have probably heard about Light Therapy and might be asking yourself if Led light therapy is truly everything that so many skin therapists and dermatologists are promising. I can tell you, it’s actually pretty good.
Light Therapy it's an Old Friend of Mine.
When I first encountered red light therapy (RLT), it was at university around 15 (!!!) years ago. By that time, we had classes about the benefits of light therapy, but now I'm not so sure about if was already LED technology. For sure, the devices are much more advanced now.
I always loved Light Therapy and was a bit down when I realised it was not popular in Denmark at that time, but now EVERYTHING changed and LED Light Therapy (LLT) is here to stay!!
LLT sounds like actual magic: With the flick of a switch, a dose of light is used to cure or improve everything from acne to sore muscles from the cellular level up. No chemicals, no down time. But as with most magical-sounding health cure-alls, you have to wonder: Is LLT Too good to be true?
There is a lot to be excited about, but LLT isn’t totally free of controversy, either. You have to be smart about which devices are legit and which ones are shady (there are many) because it's not just any red or blue light that delivers results. In other words, you can't just pop a red light (RLT) bulb into your desk lamp and expect to jump-start a cellular time machine.
With so many devices coming out online, it’s a good idea to consult a skin-care specialist to guide you on the most effective choice.
What is Red Light Therapy?
RLT works its magic by delivering safe, concentrated wavelengths of natural light into your skin (around five millimeters, to be exact), where it’s absorbed by your cells. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and fibroblasts. WOW!! RLT also boosts circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to your cells and tissues. There are plenty of studies to support RLT’s antiaging effects.
Blue LED Light Therapy Acne Treatment.
If you suffer from acne, it’s more than likely you’ve tried your fair share of treatments. From cleansers, creams, masks, and serums to even more extreme measures like prescription antibiotics and even Accutane. The options go on. LED Light Therapy for acne is a tremendous treatment option for fast results but how can Blue Light Therapy effectively treat Acne? Well, Blue LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface.
So is LLT really magic?
It's not a magical treatment. LLT depends a lot on constant use. This is truly a treatment that gives fantastics results if you could have one session of 30 min per week but realistically, you can expect LLT to improve your skin’s tone and texture and we know that it soothes inflammation, improves mild acne, and proactively treats fine lines and wrinkles.
My Signature Facials:
No skin is the same, therefore every facial is highly customized based on what my clients’ skin needs but they love my Celluma LED light therapy and Celluma is absolutely one of my personal favorite treatments. Red light boosts collagen, reduces fine lines, and speeds up healing. The blue light kills bacteria to help treat existing breakouts and prevent new ones from surfacing. It’s fantastic.
