You might have seen an LED light therapy booth at your local fitness centre or salon and wondered what it was and what the benefits of LED light therapy were. LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses non-thermal, narrow-band light emitted by LED. It helps to repair skin and accelerate rejuvenation through a range of natural cellular processes. Depending on the colour of light used, it penetrates the skin at different depths, producing various beneficial results. In fact, many people who have used LED light therapy have seen results after completing their first session.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some of the therapeutic benefits of LED Light Therapy:
Improve Dry Skin- red light has a lower frequency and it can penetrate thick, dry skin better. It helps to rejuvenate the tissue under the skin and increase blood flow. If the tissue underneath is nourished with nutrients and oxygen, the hydration of skin will improve.
Reduce Wrinkles- wrinkles may start to appear as you age when your skin loses collagen. LED light therapy restores the production of fibroblasts and collagen in people over 30, which helps in slowing down the pace of aging. This treatment is proven to reduce crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead wrinkles, and undereye wrinkles.
Improve Acne- LED light therapy is useful for eradicating acne-causing microorganisms and it helps reduce inflammation as well. Red and infrared lights reach skin layers at different depths to repair the skin more thoroughly. Acne will heal faster when the growth of microorganisms is suppressed.
Improve Winter Depression- LED light therapy is known to provide relief for people who have seasonal affective depression during winter. After just a few sessions, people with this condition will have noticeably reduced symptoms of depression.
Relieve Fatigue- based on studies, exposure to blue light reduces daytime sleepiness and fatigue in both men and women. Regular sessions of blue LED light therapy can also help improve alertness and regulate sleep disorders, especially among those who experience solar light deprivation. If you have erratic sleep patterns, LED light therapy sessions can help restore your circadian rhythm.
