Our skin is our largest organ and plays a vital role as a protective barrier for most of our body. As an external body part, it’s visible wherever we go. It’s present when we look in the mirror and on show whenever we venture out into the world, be it to go to work, do some shopping or enjoy a leisurely activity.
Yet, such visibility can result in making us feel very conscious about our appearance. For those of us who suffer from conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis, it can be very difficult to remain comfortable in our own skin. Add these unavoidable problems to the inevitable emergence of fine lines, wrinkles and dull, sagging skin as we get older, and it’s little wonder that some of us struggle with our confidence and are constantly on the lookout for solutions to damaged skin and compromised complexions.
Introducing LED Therapy
In a world of cosmetic products and aesthetic procedures, LED Therapy stands out from the crowd due to its non-invasive nature and quickness of procedure. In LED Therapy, different wavelengths of light are used to smooth out the symptoms of a variety of skin conditions and concerns. These wavelengths come in three different colours: blue, red and near infra-red and can significantly supplement the health of our skin.
The Different Wavelengths of LED Therapy
United by their ability to provide those who undergo treatment with brighter, more radiant skin and a significant disappearance in both the symptoms of medically-recognised skin conditions and standard ageing concerns, each of the three different wavelengths that make up LED Therapy specialises in combating particular problem areas.
Blue Light: Blue light is notable for its ability to target our skin’s oil glands in order to bring acne, and the breakouts associated with this condition, under control. As the appearance of spots, blemishes and nodules on the skin can cause great distress, blue light works to tackle the overproduction of natural oil and destroy any bacteria responsible for the formation of acne. Blue light can also provide an effective method of managing inflammation, psoriasis and eczema.
Red Light: When absorbed into the skin, red light sets about stimulating the production of collagen. It’s common knowledge that this natural protein, which decreases in supply as we age, is key in affecting our skin’s ability to maintain its tautness and elasticity. Therefore, those who undergo red light therapy can enjoy a marked improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well as increased circulation and a downturn in inflammation.
Near Infra-Red Light: As the wavelength that targets the deepest levels of the skin, near infra-red is the colour of choice for those looking for a comprehensive solution to severe acne, sagging and inflammation.
