First things first, what actually is LED light therapy? According to Dr. Arora, LED stands for light-emitting diode, and is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that uses light to address skin concerns. “Essentially, LED wavelengths enter the skin’s layers and stimulate the skin’s natural healing mechanisms.”
Dr. Zamani says that it has been used for over 30 years to heal the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin. “LED therapy uses light from the visible spectrum to stimulate the cellular response to regenerate through a process called photobiomodulation. Shorter wavelengths target superficial skin while longer wavelengths penetrate more deeply.” The light essentially re-charges the cells “energy battery” and the skin is then able to use the energy as fuel to repair and rejuvenate damaged cells, and boost the skin’s natural repair process.
There are different ways that you can try this treatment out, either at a clinic or at home by using an LED face mask.
