Light-emitting-diode (LED) light therapy is becoming a popular skin treatment as well as pain management treatment. Also known as low-level light therapy or photobiomodulation, it’s a safe, non-invasive treatment that was originally used by NASA in the 1990s to help promote faster wound healing during manned space flights.
What Is LED Light Therapy, and How Does It Work?
Today, aestheticians use LED light therapy in combination with other skincare treatments to help our clients with acne and wrinkles, and occasionally pain. We use different wavelengths and light colors to treat different issues. LED light therapy benefits are different for each issue.
To treat acne, we use blue LED light. Blue light has been shown to kill the bacteria that can cause acne. It also reduces the amount of oil your glands produce, which can then reduce the number of acne breakouts you have. We may also use red light to reduce redness and inflammation. When combined with our Face Reality Acne Program and other treatments, LED light therapy can help you achieve clear skin.
To treat facial and neck wrinkles, we use red LED light therapy. Red light can help reduce inflammation and stimulate skin cells called fibroblasts, which are responsible for producing collagen. Collagen, of course, is the skin protein that can give you younger-looking skin. LED light therapy benefits include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighter skin, and smoother, softer skin. Combine this treatment with our anti-aging facials for optimal results.
While we mainly focus on the benefits to our client’s skin, LED light therapy can also be used to reduce joint pain, bruising, and inflammation. Red and near-infrared LED light therapy is a drug-free method of pain management. The therapy promotes tissue repair, helping your body to heal itself. Near-infrared wavelengths penetrate deep into muscles and joint tissue to provide pain relief, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. If you’re suffering from pain, we would recommend you see one of our Cima Health doctors for a comprehensive evaluation.
