LED light therapy is a skin treatment that doesn't use ultraviolet light. Instead, it uses skin-safe, low-level light in different wavelengths and colors. These include:
Sometimes different LED lights are combined with a photosensitive drug called 5-aminolevulinic acid. This medicine is applied to the skin and used in combination with the LED light. While this might make your skin more sensitive to light, it helps the treatment -- also called photodynamic therapy -- work better.
While LED light therapy is typically done in a dermatologist’s office, several LED light facial devices are available for at-home use. These include:
Light facial masks
Light wands for targeted spot treatment
Mesotherapy electroporation devices
Professional LED light machines
These lights are used for lots of different skin conditions. Receiving light therapy from your doctor is a promising skin treatment, but at-home devices require more research. It’s not entirely clear, for example, whether home light masks work or have lasting effects.
Stimulates subcutaneous muscles and restores radiance.
Improves skin absorption using mesoporation technology.
LED therapy with five colours covering a wide range of benefits.
Reduces wrinklesthrough electrical muscle stimulation.
In-office LED light therapy requires up to 10 sessions or more, each spaced out about a week apart. You may start to see minor results after your first session. Results will be more dramatic and noticeable once you’ve finished all of your treatments. Even after you’ve achieved the recommended number of sessions, your results aren’t permanent.
