LED light therapy has become mainstream: once confined to the walls of only the fanciest of salons, several beauty brands are now offering light therapy devices which can be used at home. MZ Skin, CurrentBody and Dr. Dennis Gross to name a few. This journey is similar to the one that laser hair removal took: technology advanced, the treatment became more readily available and at-home IPL devices became a just-as-good alternative.
LED light therapy is a painless, non-invasive skin treatment where a person’s face (or in some cases other parts of the body) is exposed to an array of Red, Blue and Near-Infrared LED lights. LED light therapy uses photon energy in order to regenerate cells, reduce inflammation, heal wounds, scatter melanocyte clusters, reduce acne and increase skin rejuvenation. Blue, Red and Near-Infrared work in combination with each other (or separately).
Clinics started to notice signs that the benefits of a session could be more than just skin deep. Client feedback is starting to suggest that a short period of time spent under in-clinic LED lamps could have a dramatic impact on mood – lifting users’ spirits, decreasing stress and improving energy levels.
