LED LIGHT THERAPY EXPLAINED
LED activates skin cells with pulses of low level, non thermal light energy. The cell converts light energy into fuel (much like photosynthesis) in turn stimulating the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin. More research confirmed that LED could speed healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production, by as much as 200% within just 24 hours of treatment!
Given LED photo-stimulation can provide the skin cells with the energy to heal faster and produce more collagen it makes sense that it would also be able to fix minor damage. Trials were undertaken on sun damaged, pigmented and wrinkled skin. One trial published in the highly respected journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that a 20 minute LED treatment for 12 weeks had a positive smoothing effect in 83% of subjects and improved skin tone for an incredible 91%! Another study in the US found that it had a positive effect on crow’s feet for 81% of the test volunteers.
7 LIGHTS – WHAT DOES EACH COLOUR DO FOR THE SKIN AND CELLS?
Treats all skin types with a single device Each colour has its own frequency and vibration, colour and light bring physical, mental and spiritual and emotional systems to balance.
Red light for skin rejuvenation increases collagen production.
Blue light for acne by targeting bacteria that causes acne.
Purple light is the combination of red light and blue light, gives benefits of both lights combined together.
Yellow light energising skin, improves skin immunity and gives radiance and glow.
Green light calming and soothing effect on the skin.
Orange light improves skin’s metabolism and detoxifying for the skin.
Radium light penetrates deeply into the skin which is great for pigmentation improves skin tone.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED is non-invasive with no downtime so you walk out looking and feeling great. You will see immediate results – after the first treatment the skin feels tighter, more alive due to the increased circulation, oxygenation and moisture. You will also notice a softening of the lines and folds, an increase of inner skin firmness as a result and healthy glow and skin rejuvenation.
LED (light emitting diode) technology, a scientific process that uses wavelengths in the visible light spectrum to send calibrated packets of light into the dermal layer, setting off a frenzy of cellular activity to produce softer, more youthful looking skin.
- Promotes collagen and elastin production and oxygenation for up to 180 days after treatment
- Increases cellular activity, calming and soothing
- Anti-inflammatory, strengthens capillary walls and Rosacea
- Energising and rejuvenating skin
- Promotes intercellular communication
- Purifying antibacterial, blemished and oily skin
How does LED Light Therapy work?
Your Skin is made up of 3 layers:
- the Epidermis
- the Dermis and
- the Subcutaneous
The Epidermis is the outer layer made up of non-living cells that form your body’s protective cover. These cells are constantly being shed and replaced by new ones. The new cells are made in the lower part of the Epidermis. These are called Keratinocytes which produce the tough, fibrous protein called Keratin.
The next layer is the Dermis. It is thicker and contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. There are two main proteins in the Dermis or second layer of skin:
- Collagen, approximately 3/4 of the Dermis is made up of this protein which is responsible for the strength and plumpness of the skin.
- Elastin, which is responsible mainly for the elasticity of the skin.
The next layer is the Subcutaneous, it is the layer that contains the fatty tissues and stores energy, provides warmth and a cushion etc.
People need certain wavelengths of light similar to the way plants need sunlight to thrive. LED Light Therapy translates the process of plant photosynthesis into the workings of human skin cells; stimulating the body’s own cells to build new proteins the same way plants use Chlorophyll to convert sunlight into cellular building blocks.
Your skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. The light rays that are emitted from LED are beneficial for your skin, as they contain no UV rays. The problem with getting these same light rays from the sun is that you also get the harmful UV rays. These harmful rays can do more damage to your skin than good. With LED Light Therapy, when the correct wavelengths of light are closely and intensely flowed into the body, some pretty startling things start to occur:
Collagen and Elastin are produced in cells called Fibroblasts. Inside these cells is a smaller cellular structure called Mitochondria.
Mitochondria are responsible for converting nutrients into an energy carrier known scientifically as Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This (ATP) fuels the cell’s activities; it basically gives the cells the needed energy to do their job. This is the reason Mitochondria are frequently referred to as the powerhouse of the cell.
LED sends light rays into the Fibroblast cells, which in turn excite the Mitochondria into producing in some cases up to 10 times more ATP, but usually 2 to 4 times. This fuels the cell’s activities, which causes more of the needed Collagen and Elastin to be produced, as well as other needed materials for the skin.
The Collagen plumps up the skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles while the Elastin helps to firm skin that has began to sag. This whole LED Light Therapy process results in skin that appears more youthful, smoother, healthier and more radiant!
