Until it’s discovery by NASA, the only real way of stimulating collagen production was either through the use of ingredients such as retinoids or through controlled wounding, thus stimulating the body’s own wound healing response. LED light therapy is a safe, painless and effective way of stimulating collagen and elastin production, without any side effects.

Light therapy uses a number of LED bulbs to deliver optimised light at a specific wavelength to stimulate a change within the skin, without the need for skin care ingredients or wounding the skin. Making it an effective treatment for all skin types, including hypersensitive and rosacea skins.

In a similar fashion to plants, our cells can absorb light and convert it into energy. I explain this to my clients with the analogy of UV light stimulating an enzyme reaction that causes our skin to tan. Equally, different wavelengths of light can stimulate different enzyme reactions that have a different effect on the skin.

  • LED light will activate the skin’s photoreceptors and allows the skin cells to absorb its energy. In treatments the LED works penetrates the skin to treat issues from the inside out.
  • LED light therapy works in the deep layers of the skin to inhibit bacteria formation, stimulate collagen, and reduce in ammation.
  • The different wavelengths will combat different issues and the practitioner will tailor the treatment to suit the client, making it excellent as everyone is therefore a client! No skin care on earth can penetrate as deeply as LED, and it is a non-invasive procedure!
  • LED light therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated, and validated by hundreds of universities, medical labs and NASA. LED light therapy is a new and emerging therapy in the beauty industry that uses the natural healing power of light. Exposing light to the skin surface activates the skins photoreceptors and lets the skin cells absorb its energy. It accelerates cell biochemical circulation and stimulates the production of collagen among other processes.

  • Amber light therapy is also sometimes referred to as yellow or orange light therapy. It encompasses the range of wavelengths from 570 nm to 620 nm.
  • Amber light has quite a shallow skin penetration but is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness, such as spider veins. Though it is not typically used for tissue healing or collagen/elastin production, where it excels is in the treatment of problems such as sun damage. It is often considered to be an ideal therapy for sensitive skin, as its therapy is calming and soothing.
  • Amber light therapy is frequently recommended as a drug free alternative treatment for skin redness and flushing, irritation, rosacea, UV radiation damage, and reducing the appearance of the tiny blood vessels on the nose and face. It helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow, and increase cellular growth.

  • Probably the LED light you will see the least of (red and blue are the most common mass market options), green light is used to even out skin tone. This wavelength targets melanocytes, slowing down the production of melanin so that not as much pigmentation reaches the top layers of our skin.
  • Green light targets dark circles, pigmentation, broken capillaries, and sunspots. It also calms irritated or over-stimulated skin.

    Benefits of Purple Light Therapy

  • A combination of red and blue light creates purple light, which helps eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation and improves healing and circulation of blood. As a result, purple light is highly recommended after aggressive and invasive treatments (such as Botox, fillers or lasers), since it considerably reduces inflammation and marks. It also helps wound healing; reduces visible acne and acne marks.

  • Red light therapy has a wavelength of between 620nm (light red) to 700nm (dark red) and is predominately used for its anti-ageing benefits because of its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
  • Red therapy also helps to strengthen the skin, thanks to the additional collagen production making the skin more resilient. Making it an amazingly effective treatment for rosacea and reducing the redness that is associated with broken / weak capillaries. It also helps the skin to retain moisture more effectively.
  • Red light therapy is also extremely anti-inflammatory therefore reduces inflammation within the tissues and helping to accelerate the healing process, so is particularly useful for healing blemishes, repairing sun damage, fading scars, and improving overall skin tone.

    Skin Benefits of Blue Light Therapy
Are laser and LED light therapy treatments good for your skin?
  • Blue light therapy has a wavelength of between 405nm to 420nm and is predominately used for its anti-bacterial benefits and therefore used in acne treatment.
  • Blue light at wavelength of 415nm is absorbed by a molecule called porphyrin. P. Acne bacteria contain an abundant amount of porphyrin. The absorption of blue light by porphyrin creates singlet oxygen (free radicals) which are released into the bacteria, killing the bacteria.
  • Blue light is also anti-inflammatory. However, for best results blue light is used in combination with red light therapy, for its additional skin rejuvenation and wound healing benefits.

    Skin Benefits of Amber Light Therapy
Does LED Therapy Improve Skin Condition?

  • Amber light therapy is effective in the treatment of skin issues involving redness such as rosacea. It is ideal for sensitive skin because of its calming and soothing.
  • Amber light therapy helps to flush waste from the skin, boost lymphatic flow and increase cellular growth.
