Q – DR. ELIJAh, I’VE NOTICED LIGHT THERAPY IS A THING FOR SKIN CARE NOW. WHAT IS LED OR LIGHT THERAPY AND IS IT SAFE?
A – We know therapy is good for your mental health, right?
You get your feelings out, talk through the mess of life and feel lighter walking out of that office than you did walking in.
But, what about therapy for your skin?
(Aside from the gab session you have with your esthetician, of course.)
What treatment can help you feel comfortable in your skin (like talk therapy does)?
That’s where LED light therapy comes in…
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED (light emitting diode) uses wavelengths of red, blue and in some cases near-infrared light that help repair and rejuvenate the skin.
Light therapy can be used to treat the skin for:
• Pain management
• Wound healing
And is a perfect added boost to most skincare treatments like facials.
HOW DOES LED LIGHT THERAPY HELP YOUR SKIN?
We mentioned how light therapy can help with acne and anti-aging, but it goes deeper than that.
Because this light therapy penetrates the skin at various depths, it can help:
• Calm irritated skin
• Diminish acne bacteria (hello + goodbye, acne)
• Clear existing breakouts and inflammation
• Increases collagen and elastin production
• Reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
• Improve firmness and resilience of skin
• Restore skin’s healthy appearance
WHO IS LED LIGHT THERAPY FOR?
Anyone! Really, no joke.
Especially those who suffer from rosacea.
However, those who are pregnant, or on certain medications like Accutane, please consult with your doctor or skincare professional first.
IS LED LIGHT THERAPY SAFE?
Yes, it is!
Like we said, it supports all skin types and is:
• Lacks harsh chemicals
• Does not emit harmful UV-rays
