What are the benefits of red LED light therapy?
Red (LED) light therapy may sound strange when talking about your skincare, but there is scientific evidence proving that it helps to rejuvenate skin and stimulate the growth of new cells. This type of therapy is not painful and there are no known side effects, unlike most surgical procedures. You simply sit in front of a red LED light for this therapy treatment.
If you live in the Clearwater, Florida area, it is very likely that your skin has been exposed to the harmful rays that cause sun damage. Sun damaged skin tends to age and develop wrinkles faster. Using red (LED) light therapy helps you to regenerate skin cells and connective tissues quickly, erasing wrinkles and other signs of aging.
How Does it Work?
There have been studies conducted on the beneficial effects of red LED light therapy on skin cells. These studies found that this type of light therapy promotes the production of growth proteins in skin cells. Yet, how the production of these proteins is induced is unknown at this time. Some researchers believe that the mitochondria become excited by the wavelength of light, which cause them to generate more energy for your cells to get things done; like producing growth proteins.
Any way you look at it, if sitting in front of a red LED light is all it takes to remove aging lines and wrinkles, then why not give it a try? Treatments are simple and easy, all you have to do is relax under the therapy lamp. Some people opt for a full facial before red (LED) light therapy, in order to have a totally clean face for the treatment. A full facial will give your skin cells the benefit of even more stimulation prior to the red (LED) light therapy treatment.
How Long Before Lasting Results?
Most people have reported seeing the best results after about four months of treatment. Treatments should be done twice a week over this period of time for optimal results. Wrinkles are built over time, and as the sun damages your skin, cells under the outside layer of skin die. These cells are the ones that produce new cells for your outer layer of skin. When these cells die, they take the extracellular matrix (i.e. collagen) along with them and that is how wrinkles form.
In order for the wrinkles to fade away, your collagen layers between skin cells need to be rebuilt, and that takes time. This is why it is essential to adhere to a treatment schedule for a minimum of four months. Once you start seeing the results, especially since they come without any pain or hassle, it will be priceless.
