What is LED light therapy?
LED light therapy is a very popular, non-invasive skin treatment suitable for acne, rosacea, sun damage, wounds, and other common skin problems. Low-level-light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation, uses Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology and can be applied to the body for therapeutic benefits. Similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, LED light therapy promotes a natural photo biochemical reaction. The energy that comes from LEDs works to enhance cellular metabolism, accelerate the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, and stimulates the production of collagen, which is the foundation of healthy, smooth, beautiful skin.
Research has shown that LED light therapy can:
In the past, light therapy was only available at a dermatologist or esthetician’s office, however with the emergence of effective and affordable, at-home light therapy device design, you can now pick up a hand-held light therapy device, and enjoy the treatment from the comfort of your own home.

Is LED light therapy safe?
LED light therapy is safe for all skin types and is a non-ablative, non-invasive, painless treatment that requires absolutely no downtime, meaning that patients can return to normal activities immediately after application. It is based on LED technology developed for NASA-manned space flight experiments. The patented LED technology generates negligible amounts of heat so it is not considered a significant risk device as compared to lasers. LED light therapy is a convenient way to treat problems in the skin.
What are the different kinds of colors and what do they do?
Red LED Light Therapy
Aging is the degradation of the metabolic processes and it is a known fact that humans pursue ways to minimize the effects of aging as much as they can. Many spas and wellness centers have started offering anti-aging treatments to tackle the many side effects of the aging process, including using LED light therapy. Common signs of aging can include:
A significant factor that leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and joint pain is the decreasing levels of collagen as you age. Collagen is the leading structural protein that can be found in your skin and connective tissue. LED red light therapy increases fibroblast proliferation and the more healthy fibroblasts we have in the skin, the more and better collagen fibers are made. Healthy collagen levels give us a glowing complexion, firm skin, strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair, all things that any person wants to have. Long story short, the more our bodies produce collagen, the better we’ll look and feel as we age.
Now that we have established a baseline of why collagen is essential during the aging process, let's take a look at the most natural way to produce more collagen using the anti-aging effects that LED red light therapy provides. LED light therapy devices utilize red and near-infrared wavelengths of light energy and have been scientifically proven to enhance your body’s natural ability to create collagen and elastin.
You can finally say goodbye to prescriptions, medications, injections, and surgeries by saying hello to safe, natural wavelengths of light energy that are proven to be effective.
Blue LED Light Therapy
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. In fact, 80 percent of people are affected by acne at some point in their life. Acne is most often thought of as a “teenage issue” however, it is also very common in adults. Some people experience acne in their 30s, 40s and even 50s. While acne does not necessarily impact our physical health, there is absolutely no doubt that it does damage to our mental health. Although it is completely normal and nothing to be ashamed of, acne can cause us to feel self-conscious and no one wants to feel uncomfortable in their own skin.
Acne is caused when an abundance of skin cells and naturally-produced oil called sebum clog tiny hair follicles, or pores. Sebum production can continue to build under the skin’s surface and as it becomes infected with acne bacteria, it causes swelling, redness, and inflammation. Acne can present itself in many ways─whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts are the most common.
There are many acne treatments including, over-the-counter cleansers, creams, masks, serums, and sometimes more extreme measures like prescription antibiotics and even Accutane. But, what if I told you there was a safe, non-invasive, easy way to treat acne?
LED blue light therapy is an innovative way for anyone struggling with acne to try and finally start to see some positive results. LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria, deep below the skin’s surface. This natural, chemical-free alternative is much better for you than traditional medical solutions. Blue LED light therapy releases wavelengths of light that have been clinically proven to kill acne-causing bacteria, decrease inflammation, and improve skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out.
One study actually found that blue and red LED light therapy can be an even more effective treatment of inflammatory acne. Blue light and red light combine the powers of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action, creating an effective and safe way to treat acne vulgaris.
Green LED Light Therapy
Green LED light goes deeper than blue light and is very good for acne and discoloration. Green light calms the skin and it’s anti-inflammatory powers help reduce hyperpigmentation and sun damage, resulting in a brighter complexion. It is often paired with other forms of light therapy in order to achieve maximal benefits. Green light has a calming effect when it is absorbed into the skin and can also soothe the surface of skin. Green LED light therapy can fade freckles, age spots, reddish or brownish skin patches, and is also used to treat dilated capillaries, sagging skin around the eyes, under eye circles, hyperpigmentation, and sun spots.
Light therapy offers a powerful, yet safe and gentle approach for obtaining more beautiful skin. It allows you to have the opportunity to treat many skin concerns without any harsh chemicals, drugs, or invasive treatments. The skin responds quickly and very positively to the different wavelengths of color.
