LED light therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses specific wavelengths to destroy bacteria, improve acne, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. LED light therapy is a quick, pain-free procedure that entails no recovery time. Within a few treatment sessions, many patients experience dramatic results and their skin often continues to improve over time.
How Does LED Light Therapy Work?
Every patient’s experience will be customized as LED light therapy uses pre-specified wavelengths of light to treat individual concerns. A patient getting LED light therapy treatment for acne scars, for example, will have a different treatment path than someone seeking therapy for fine lines and wrinkles.
For most patients, treatment takes no longer than 30 minutes. During the procedure, you will sit or lie down as your practitioner applies the device to the treatment area. The procedure is pain-free and there is no recovery period afterward. Most patients need multiple treatment sessions to see results, with the number of sessions varying depending on the condition being treated.
LED light therapy is a drug-free means to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. LED red light therapy can target fibroblast cells, responsible for producing collagen and elastin, two proteins that are found in connective tissues.
Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin can help tighten and firm the skin. As a result, many patients see a reduction in common signs of aging within only a few light therapy sessions. In addition to treating wrinkles and fine lines, LED light therapy can help firm sagging skin around the neck, which is commonly associated with aging.
Acne can be a frustrating issue to treat, especially if you end up with scars and lesions as a result of chronic breakouts. Patients who have cycled through various creams, ointments, and even prescription medications often find success with LED light therapy. Treatment can both reduce the surface-level appearance of acne and prevent future breakouts by improving overall skin health.
LED blue therapy can target acne-causing bacteria underneath the skin and red light therapy can emit specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light that stimulate the immune system in the skin which then can kill bacteria more effectively. The combination of blue and red light used by LED light devices can cause a dramatic reduction in acne.
In addition to killing bacteria, red light can also help decrease inflammation. This can reduce scars and lesions that may linger after acne is gone, improving the overall appearance of your skin.
