What Is LED Light Therapy and is it Safe?
LED Light Therapy is the use of specific types of light which give off energy that stimulate your cells, thereby increasing the production of collagen and elastin. In turn, this makes your skin firmer, less wrinkled, and younger looking. This is known as LED Light Therapy. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Diodes give off energy in the form of light. These little diodes are compact, durable, powerful, bright, efficient, and when used in the right combination (not all LED’s are created equal), produce rejuvenating effects on the skin. In the same way that we become more energized with the lighter, longer, days of spring, LED helps to stimulate energy in our cells, activating the natural, rejuvenating, healing process. Our body is a brilliant machine, and given the right tools, such as proper, effective skin care, and some of today’s safe, effective, cutting edge devices, like micro-current and LED, we can absolutely, correct and prevent the signs of aging.
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. I always find it quite fascinating to see how our hair and nails grow faster more in the summer time and also as evidence of how our body uses light and the similarities between humans and plants. The light rays that are emitted from a quality device 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:
Led lights help to heal 150-200% faster and decreases inflammation (the root of all disease and aging) which encourages the wrinkles in the top layers of skin. It also helps stimulate collagen & elastin which creates better skin. It is beneficial for so many skin conditions-discolorations, acne, wrinkles, dryness and more! Another major benefit with LED, is the ability to help serums and healthy products penetrate into the skin, making your skin care products more effect.
LED Light Therapy is approved and recommended by Oncology Esthetics organizations which, as you can imagine have incredibly strict regulations as cancer patients in treatment are incredibly sensitive. Nasa has conducted tons of research on LED technology to help plants grow. The Agency has also worked with LEDs to help regulate astronauts’ sleep cycles on the International Space Station (ISS), where 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours tend to throw off their internal clocks. I think its safe to say that LED is indeed safe.
LED, like most treatments is accumulative, meaning, just like working out, our cells continue to get healthier with time, and continued use. This is incredible in the treatment room, as well as at for home use to prevent and reverse the signs of again. As I have said before, your cells don’t know their age so why should anyone else?! Your secret is safe with me.
At Lisa Eddy Skincare we use and recommend LED light therapy for a number of skin conditions with excellent results and are happy to discuss and make any specific recommendations for you.
