LED Skin Treatment
Definition - What does LED Skin Treatment mean?
LED (Light Emitting Diode) Skin Treatment, or LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive skin care treatment that is used for boosting skin elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, improving skin texture, as well as treating mild acne. An anti-aging method, LED Skin Treatment is often used as part of a facial. LED Skin Treatments entail the use of low level light energy to stimulate cellular activity in the deeper layers of the skin.
There are two types of LED Skin Treatment: red light LED Skin treatment and blue light LED Skin treatment.
TheConsultation explains LED Skin Treatment
Light Emitting Diode (LED) Skin Treatment entails the usage of LED lights to combat signs of aging, mild acne, and improve skin texture, tone and elasticity. LED treatments include the usage of a mask that emits therapeutic wavelengths of light energy which causes skin rejuvenation. The low-level energy that penetrates the skin stimulates cellular activity and causes an increase in the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in fresher, smoother, and plumper looking skin with increased skin elasticity.
Red light LED Treatments are used to promote circulation, with the skin responding to the wavelength by strengthening cellular structure. In the case of blue light LED Treatments the specific wavelengths stimulate the production of oxygen, and kill Propionibacterium acnes - the bacteria that causes acne.
Both treatments influence the production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for skin elasticity and in turn the signs of aging on the skin, as well as reduce inflammation which is helpful for the treatment of acne. The different types target different aspects of the skin and have a greater influence in different areas, but are both seen as successful skin rejuvenation techniques.
