Reversing the Signs of Aging or Damaged Skin

LED Light therapy is a painless, even relaxing skin-care treatment that can address multiple skin concerns.For those seeking anti-aging, LED plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production. Suitable for all ages and skin types, LED can also help manage moderate acne by controlling inflammation and killing bacteria.

In the medical field LED light therapy has been used to reduce pain, accelerate tissue healing, improve circulation and reduce swelling.

This breakthrough technology is well known in the field of esthetics trusted as a gentle, yet effective means of reversing the signs of aging or damaged skin.

LED can be incorporated as a preventative measure for keeping it youthful and It is no wonder that this therapeutic treatment is highly popular with clients of all ages.

LED RED Light therapy stimulates fibroblast, which play an important role in tissue repair, helping form the structural framework of the skin, including the production of collagen. This keeps one’s skin healthy and youthful.

LED RED therapy will, over time:

  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Treat sun-damaged skin
  • Soften stretch marks
  • Reduce inflammation, which has traced to premature aging or injury

BLUE LED therapy on the other hand works by:

  • Killing the bacteria deep in the skin that is responsible for acne.

NASA Reearch has discovered that certain frequencies of light, red and infrared specifically, will significantly reverse or improve damaged skin as well offer other health benefits.

LED is a non-invasive process that triggers the body to convert light energy into cellular energy, without thermal heat; hence there is no inflammation that requires post-treatment attention. LED has zero downtime!

In the medical field LED light therapy has been used to reduce pain, accelerate tissue healing, improve circulation and reduce swelling.

This breakthrough technology in the field of esthetics is used as a gentle, yet effective means of reversing the signs of aging or damaged skin – an excellent preventative measure for keeping skin youthful.

How Does It Help With Sun Damage?

Think of what happens to a rubber band when it is left out in the sun. It shrinks and breaks. This is the same concept of what happens to collagen when it is exposed to the sun. It becomes brittle and breaks.

This over time leads to fine lines and aging skin due to the fact that your collagen is not holding your skin together.

LED light therapy either prevents or reverses the damage as you are BUILDING collagen which keeps your skin supple and youthful.
