LED means “Light Emitting Diode.” A diode is a small device that allows electricity to flow in just one direction. With LED therapy, various wavelengths of light are focused on the skin to trigger natural regeneration.
What is LED light therapy?
LEDs can emanate light at various wavelengths. NASA research has established that certain light waves stimulate healing and trigger natural collagen production. LED light therapy is painless and can produce a remarkable improvement in skin quality and health.
Am I a candidate?
LED light therapy does not require the application of cold or heat, which could damage the skin. It is a gentle procedure which causes no redness, swelling, or downtime. If you are not currently taking Accutane, you are most likely a good candidate for LED light therapy.
What are the benefits of LED light therapy?
The most widely used types of LED light therapy include:
