LED skin devices certainly sound promising, claiming to treat everything from signs of aging, acne, wrinkles and scarring. The question is, are the claims valid? Can all these problems really be solved with LED light devices? - and most importantly, is it safe to use?
Light therapy devices mainly make use of three different coloured lights:
- The red light stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, improving the appearance of lines and wrinkles, fighting signs of aging.
- The green light is ideal for an environmentally damaged skin, stimulating nutrient intake onto the skin, while also brightening the skin through the reduction of melanin production.
- The blue light is best used for combating acne, as it promotes anti-bacterial action associated with fighting pustular acne.
LED light therapy aims to increase your skin’s healing response by the promotion of collagen and elastin synthesis. Due to its anti-bacterial benefits, the device also promotes smooth skin tones and reduced inflammation. This treatment does not make use of any UVA/UVB rays; therefore it is considered safe and does not negatively impact your skin.
