LED and the Collagen Story

The Most Remarkable Light That Surpasses IPL and Fraxel Without AnyDowntime!

LED, or light-emitting diodetherapy, is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue.NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to havepromise for wound treatment!

Harvard Medical School writes "LED lights have been around since the 1960s, but have only recently been used as a skin treatment. Different wavelengths of the visible light spectrum correspond to different colors of LED light and penetrate the skin to different depths. Depending on how deeply they penetrate, LED lights  have different biological effects." Red and blue lights are typically used in LED skin treatments.  LED light acts on cells in the skin known as fibroblasts, which play a role in the production of collagen, a protein that makes up a large part of connective tissue and helps the skin to recover when it's harmed.  Red light helps to reverse some of the signs related to photoaging in the skin. In addition, some studies show that red light may help to restore hair for those with androgenetic alopecia, or male- and female-pattern hair loss!    LED light therapy treatment lasts from 20-30 minutes. You'll likely need up to 10 treatments total, depending on the results you're looking to achieve. How often should you get this treatment? I recommend doing a series of 5-10 once a week sessions and then adding this to your monthly treatments. You will see a healthy, radiant glow immediately, but because collagen cells are slow-growing, full results may not be noticeable for about three months.
