LED Light Therapy Science – Improve Complexions
LED Light Therapy is another common choice of cosmetic treatment by clients. This is because it is one of the most relaxing beauty procedures on the market, and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and healthy. We explore LED Light Therapy Science and how it improves the complexion of the skin.
Natural light affects the skin in numerous ways, good and bad. Exposure to excessive sunlight causes premature ageing of the skin and encourages the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This is because natural light contains multiple different types of light waves. Many LED Light Therapy procedures use ultraviolet light to rejuvenate the face. This type of light is called Ultraviolet B (UVB) and is one of two types of ultraviolet light found in natural sunlight. UVB is more powerful and has a greater effect on the skin. Ultraviolet light can effectively treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, reducing swelling and inflammation.
LED Light Therapy Science has clear medical benefits as well as improving your appearance. Doctors tend to recommend that clients who suffer from skin conditions and find medication or creams ineffective undergo a course of LED Light Therapy. In the majority of cases, it produces positive results and lets clients feel happy and confident about their skin. However, the only downside is that UVB can be dangerous, even when in natural sunlight. It is estimated that UVB makes up about 5% of natural sunlight, but this still leads to sunburn and ageing of the skin.
Our LED Mask produces visible light rather than ultraviolet light. It appears in two colours; red and blue. The red light reduces signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines. This setting also lessens the appearance of sun damage and age spots, which is where the skin produces excess melanin after sun exposure. Red light directly affects the capillaries in the face, increasing circulation and revitalising the skin. Blue light is incredibly beneficial for skin conditions such as acne. When the LED Mask emits blue light, this produces singlet oxygen which fights the bacteria that causes acne.
HD Aesthetic Technologies’ LED Mask offers a safe way of treating the skin on the face without putting your clients at risk. It improves the quality of the skin and reduces conditions that may cause your client pain. As a result of the two types of light and their effects, you could offer two separate treatments. For instance, you could conduct an acne treatment that specifically uses the blue light produced by the LED Mask. The LED Mask also has a setting where you can alternate between the red and blue light, so your client can get the most out of their treatment.
