LED - Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy - 1/2 Day Practical 

LED stands for light-emitting diode. NASA originally developed LED lights for plant growth experiments in space. These lights have been in use since the 1960s, but people have only recently started using them as a skin treatment.  LED masks and canopies can be used as an add-on to facial treatments or as a standalone treatment.
 

How LED works? 

Different wavelengths of light in LED lights, including blue and red, penetrate the skin at different depths. This penetration may trigger biological processes that help the skin rejuvenate and heal.


Blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil-producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil, possibly improving acne symptoms. Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation.
 

Red light Red LED light may improve scarring and signs of aging, such as wrinkles. It may do this by acting on fibroblasts, which are skin cells that are responsible for collagen production.    Red light also reduces skin inflammation.
