What is LED Light Therapy?
The use of LED light therapy has become increasingly popular in skincare as it provides potential solutions for skin problems that cannot be effectively treated with regular over-the-counter products. LED light therapy involves a variety of frequencies of light and has been proven effective in reducing inflammation, acne, and signs of aging. Additionally, it is a safe treatment suitable for all skin types and tones, without any negative side effects like burning. LED light therapy treatments are offered in various wavelengths or frequencies, each with its own unique benefits for the skin. At Elizabeth Roche M.D. MedSpa we use the Artemis LED Light Mask. The following sections will explain some of the most popular LED light options our mask offers.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is the deepest reaching light that targets the deep dermis. It has been found to promote wound healing and reduce the appearance of scars. By increasing blood flow to the affected area, it helps deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to the skin, accelerating the healing process. This therapy also aids in reducing the redness and inflammation associated with acne and other skin conditions. Furthermore, red light therapy has been shown to stimulate the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy source for cells. This increase in ATP production enhances cellular metabolism, leading to improved overall skin health, while simultaneously repairing damaged skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthy cells. Red light therapy has been found to have anti-aging effects by increasing the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for maintaining the skin’s structure and elasticity. As a result, it can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin and improve skin tone and texture.
Overall, red light therapy offers a non-invasive and natural approach to improving skin health and appearance. With its ability to stimulate collagen production, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote cell growth, it is a versatile treatment option for individuals seeking healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
Yellow Light Therapy
Yellow LED light therapy works by emitting specific wavelengths of light that can penetrate the skin at different depths. Yellow LED light therapy is the next deep reaching light which targets the upper dermis. This wavelength can activate the lymphatic system and eliminate toxins from the body. Yellow LED light therapy can reduce inflammation of the skin, by promoting circulation and stimulating the lymphatic system in the skin which promotes the body’s natural healing. Resulting in reduced redness and inflammation, making it an effective treatment for conditions such as rosacea and acne. By calming the skin and reducing inflammation, yellow LED light therapy can help to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin.
The most significant benefit of yellow LED light therapy is its ability to target redness and flushing.
In addition, Yellow LED light therapy has also shown to increase the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer, more youthful skin, similar to the red light.
Green Light Therapy
Artemis’ green light penetrates to the epidermis and has been shown to improve the overall appearance of hyperpigmentation. Hyperpigmentation refers to the dark spots or patches that can appear on the skin due to an overproduction of melanin. The green light used in LED therapy can penetrate the skin and break down excess melanin, leading to a more even toned and brighter complexion. This makes green LED light therapy an excellent option for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles, and uneven skin tone. It can also improve the texture and quality of the skin by increasing collagen production. As we age, our collagen production begins to decline, and lower collagen levels cause the loss of firmness and elasticity in our skin. By stimulating collagen production, green light therapy can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall health and vitality of the skin. It can be used on all skin types and is safe for long-term use. Overall, green light therapy is a highly effective and versatile treatment option for improving the appearance and health of the skin. Its calming properties, ability to reduce inflammation and hyperpigmentation, and promotion of collagen production make it a valuable addition to any skincare routine.
Blue Light Therapy
Artemis’ Blue light therapy has been found to have many beneficial effects on acne-prone skin. Specifically, it targets the sebaceous glands, which are responsible for producing oil to prevent an array of skin concerns. When these glands become overactive, they can lead to oily skin and the development of acne. Fortunately, blue light therapy has been shown to regulate oil production in the sebaceous glands, helping to reduce excessive oiliness and prevent acne breakouts. Additionally, blue light can kill acne-causing bacteria, further contributing to its effectiveness in treating acne-prone skin. In addition to its benefits for acne, blue light therapy has also shown promise in addressing other skin conditions such as eczema and mild psoriasis. The rays emitted by the blue light have been found to repair skin damage, reduce inflammation, and improve the appearance of acne and oily skin. Blue light therapy also has a cleansing and calming effect on the skin. By targeting the sebaceous glands and regulating oil production, it helps to maintain a balanced and healthy complexion. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory properties of blue light contribute to its ability to soothe and calm irritated skin. Blue light therapy offers a range of benefits for various skin concerns.
