Heck yes! As a result of aging, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised & unable to renew themselves normally. Visible light can help, offering powerful effects on the skin, like actually helping new skin cells grow. What do you have to lose? Try a rejuvenating, life-changing (or at least, complexion-changing) therapy sesh.
LED (light-emitting diode) is a "low-energy” form of visible light, when compared to high-energy forms such as lasers & intense pulsed light devices. The skincare treatment uses varying wavelengths of this light to alter the biologic activity of skin cells. Translation: It works wonders when absorbed in the skin.
Light therapy can make a noticeable difference in the look and feel of your skin. Not only does it help boost the appearance of collagen and leave skin looking brighter, it’s also been found to repair cell damage, kill bacteria (hello acne fighter), improve facial texture, reduce fine lines & more. Long enough list for you? Pair it with a potent serum or essence, and your skin won’t know what hit it.
Unlike other light therapy, LEDs don’t contain UV rays, so they’re safe for regular use. Compared to anti-aging treatments like chemical peels, laser therapy & more, they’re also painless (no burns) and require zero recovery time. Side effects are rare, but like anything, they do exist, so consult a professional if you are unsure.
At-home LED devices aren’t as strong as the LED used in a clinic setting, but they yield similar results/benefits. That said, don’t expect a total transformation overnight. Results require consistent, long-term use.
