7 Surprising Benefits of LED Light Therapy for Your Skin You Need to Know…

Let me spill the tea on something that’s been lighting up the skincare world – literally. So, my friend Ana was raving about how her skin started to look as if she’s been drinking from the fountain of youth itself. Naturally, my ears perked up. “What’s this magic?” I asked. LED light therapy, she said with a twinkle in her eye. Sure, at first I shrugged it off as yet another passing fad, but girl, was I wrong! I went down the rabbit hole of research and what I discovered was nothing short of a revelation. Who would have thought that something as simple as light could be the secret weapon in our quest for radiant skin? We’re not just talking a subtle glow or a gentle refresh. Oh no, we’re diving into seven game-changing perks that have totally shifted my perspective on skincare routines. Grab your favorite drink, get comfy, and let’s uncover these surprising benefits of LED light therapy together!

What is LED Light Therapy?

Ever feel like you’re in a sci-fi movie when you’re at a spa with those funky goggles on? That’s LED light therapy for you, a non-invasive skin treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light to work its magic on your skin. Imagine this: panels of red, blue, even green lights that look like they’ve come straight from a futuristic spaceship, all promising to nudge your skin into looking younger, calmer, and just better.

So how does it work, you ask? Think of each light color as a different kind of skincare ‘superhero’. Red says, ‘Hey there fine lines, meet collagen!’ Blue dives deep and tells acne-causing bacteria to take a hike. And green? It’s the mellow one, working to even out your skin tone. It’s like having your own personal team of Avengers committed to getting your skin game strong!

Promotion of Collagen Production

So, collagen is basically the scaffolding of our skin, right? And nobody enjoys the sag and wrinkles that come knocking as we age. Enter LED light therapy – our covert operative in the anti-aging spy game. This nifty treatment uses specific wavelengths of light to energize our skin cells like they’ve just had a shot of espresso. This kickstarts the collagen production process, giving us that firm, plumped up look we’re all chasing. Just imagine, fewer prunes, more peaches! And the best part? It doesn’t hurt, and your skin doesn’t need recovery time. It’s like sending your face to the gym while you chill with a cup of tea. A total win-win scenario if you ask me.

Reduction in Inflammation and Redness

Ever had an uninvited zit crash your party of clear skin dreams? Well, LED light therapy steps in like the unassuming superhero for those with rosacea or acne-prone skin. This nifty treatment uses wavelengths that dive deep, calming down irritated cells and waving a red (or rather ‘infrared’) flag to inflammation. Take it from someone who’s been there: after consistent sessions, the annoying redness seemed to throw its own farewell party. And here’s the kicker — there’s actual science-backed evidence showing significant improvements in skin conditions marked by inflammation. No magic, just lights doing their thing.

Acceleration of Healing Processes

One of the most underrated superpowers of LED light therapy is its ability to fast-track your skin’s recovery. Imagine having a minor surgery or an accidental scrape. Ordinarily, the body goes through its meticulous and slow healing waltz. But with LED light therapy, it’s like having a backstage pass – your skin’s natural healing tempo picks up pace, reducing the time it takes for scars and wounds to fade away. Take it from someone who’s seen firsthand the quickened healing of post-op scars under the gentle glow of LED lights – it’s impressive. It works quietly in the background, often overshadowed by its flashier benefits, but when it comes to the healing encore, LED light therapy definitely deserves a standing ovation.

Improvement in Acne and Reduction of Oil Production

Say goodbye to those pesky pimples and relentless shine! LED light therapy, specifically with blue light wavelengths, is like a superhero swooping in to put those acne-causing bacteria in their place. It’s not magic—it’s science. The blue light penetrates your pores, creating an unfriendly environment for the bacteria that love to cause breakouts. But it doesn’t stop there. This smart tech also takes a whack at regulating oil production. Too much oil leads to more breakouts, and nobody’s got time for that. With regular sessions, your skin gets the memo to calm down on the grease production, making your face less shiny and your skincare routine a bit less about damage control and more about radiance. I’ve noticed it first hand, and it’s a game changer!

Enhanced Absorption of Skincare Products

Imagine slathering your favorite cream on your skin, only for it to chill on the surface like a lazy sunbather. Doesn’t make much sense to invest in high-quality skincare if it’s not going deep, right? LED light therapy is like the drill sergeant in this analogy. It kicks your skin cells into gear, aiding them to open up and say ‘ahh’ a bit more. Think of it as priming the canvas before an artist starts painting. This means every drop of your precious serums and creams is more likely to dive deeper into the skin, doing the hard work you bought them for. It’s like unlocking a bonus level in your daily skincare routine; suddenly every product works just a bit harder. I’ve seen it myself – that pricey vitamin C serum I adore? Works like a charm ever since I paired it with LED light therapy sessions.

Non-Invasive Treatment with No Downtime

Time is a commodity that seems in short supply these days, but thankfully, the simplicity of LED light therapy slides seamlessly into our jam-packed schedules. Imagine stepping out of a quick session, your skin basking in the afterglow, with no mandatory couch confinement or hiding away as post-procedure redness subsides. That’s the beauty we’re delving into here—its non-invasive charm. Unlike more aggressive treatments that put you out of commission, this therapy gets you back in the game immediately. No more planning around a ‘recovery day.’ It’s a lunch break affair, not a weekend retreat. This convenience factor isn’t just appealing; it’s reshaping the way we approach skin care.

May Help with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

When wintertime blues hit, it’s not just about chilly days and dark evenings. Our moods can seriously take a dive, with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affecting many of us when the sunlight dwindles. But guess what? Those nifty LED light panels aren’t just for Insta-worthy skincare routines. Studies hint that specific wavelengths of LED light can mimic the mood-boosting rays of the sun, potentially batting away the gloom of SAD. Imagine that – your very own pocket-sized sunshine, minus the UV damage, to not only perk up your skin but your spirits too.

Skin treatment Light Therapy

The secret is out and it’s finally made it to Winnipeg! Phototherapy, also known as LED Light Therapy, is used and trusted by the likes of NASA and in the medical field to fast track wound healing, treat and prevent pain and discomfort associated with cancer treatments, bone-marrow transplants, joint pain, etc.

This innovative technology immerses your skin in light and helps to achieve a healthy and glowing complexion in just one sitting. The light therapy facial mask is based on various wavelengths of the light spectrum ranging from red and purple to blue. These specific light waves have different effects on your skin. They permeate the extracellular matrix of the connective tissue where they reduce the depletion of elastin and increase the production of collagen. They also help increase the supply of oxygen to the cell, thus improving metabolism and blood circulation. The skin is tightened, pores are reduced and the general skin appearance improved. Even the healing of scar tissue is accelerated due to the stimulation of regenerative processes.

Phototherapy has made a big impact within the aesthetics industry due to its healing effects on many skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, and much more! Big names in Hollywood such as Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, and Kourtney Kardashian are big fans of Phototherapy as amazing results can be seen in as little as three treatments! 

Besides anti-aging and hyper-pigmentation, blue light fights the bacteria that causes acne making it one of the most effective aesthetic treatments for this widely depressing skin problem – and it’s entirely pain-free!

Here’s what we love about the Phototherapy Facial:

  • The mask does not feel suffocating – in fact, it’s quite comfortable
  • The LEDs provide a warm rejuvenating sensation to the skin
  • The treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and safe for all skin types. *Note that if you have photosensitivity, you should not use this mask
  • No harmful microwaves, UVA, UVB or lasers!
  • The facial is relaxing and you feel like taking a nap during the process
  • No “downtime” required for inflammation to subside, unlike in the case of chemical peels and other abrasive treatments
  • Gives skin a temporary lift right after use and makes it look plumper and well-hydrated
  • Treatments are very affordable compared to other facial/skin treatments! 

The facial mask comes with 3 different light settings, targeting a wide range of skin problems, including aging signs. Settings include wrinkle reducer, acne buster, skin balancer, red away, radiant skin, skin soother, cell rejuvenater, skin booster using infrared and pain-blocker. You can also try a quick fix with red, purple and blue lights combined for a 30 minute treatment to give you that red carpet glow for when you have a special event to attend!

You don’t have to wait till your late 30s to start an anti-aging regimen. Experts suggest starting as early as your 20s as collagen production becomes dormant after the age of 25. The LED facial is a revolutionary new skin treatment process, backed by decades of research that promises to fade and prevent signs of aging, boost collagen fiber production, firm tired and aging skin and annihilate acne, dullness and discolourations. After trying it a few times on ourselves here at LUX, we definitely recommend making this treatment a staple in your skincare regimen.
