HOW DOES LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
The simple and short answer to this question, is that LED light therapy treatments supercharge your cells with the natural light they need to make more energy. The result of this is when your body produces more energy, it can have a substantially positive effect on your health and bodily function.
LED means light-emitting diode. It works by emitting infrared lights in different wavelengths/spectrums, which have different skincare benefits. LED light therapy enhances your energy production at a cellular level. Healthy, natural light stimulates the mitochondria, the powerhouse of the cell, and enhances the cellular respiration process that makes ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy. Humans make ATP every day, and it fuels everything we do. The more energy our cells can make, the better our bodies look, heal, feel, and perform.
Our cells need natural light to function, just like they need water and nutrients from food. Unfortunately, most people don’t get as much natural light as they need for optimal health (the average person spends over 87% of their time indoors). LED light therapy allows you to supplement the light you get from your environment with concentrated wavelengths of infrared light at home.
The light used does not cause any burns or skin damage. It is a painless treatment and if you like lights, the colours can even be relaxing. People turn to LED light therapy to fix skin problems such as acne or to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Each infrared light targets specific areas and skin concerns. Red light therapy is used for fine lines and wrinkles. Blue lights are used to improve acne and prevent breakouts by killing the acne-causing bacteria. If you deal with things like sagging, wrinkling skin, acne, and inflammation, you should try LED light therapy.
