RED LIGHT THERAPY FOR THE SKIN

RED LIGHT THERAPY FOR THE SKIN

You may have heard your friends or dermatologist mention red light therapy, or even blue or green light therapy, and how you can use different color lights to treat various skin problems. We’re here to dive in and help explain what red light therapy is, how it works and explore if it’s something you should consider for yourself.

WHAT IS RED LIGHT THERAPY?

Red light therapy is a proven method of reducing fine lines and wrinkles, backed by substantial research and clinical studies.

Light therapy for skin was originally discovered by NASA in an effort to find a solution for growing plants and feeding astronauts in space so they enlisted the expertise of plant biologists, who in seeking the answers, looked to LED (light emitting diodes).

Once LEDs proved to be successful in plant growth, NASA investigated the use of LED therapy in tissue healing and found positive results also.  This research fueled the development of innovative and powerful LEDs that are now used in a variety of aesthetic applications and light therapies for skin.

In particular, red lights have proven to be an effective LED light facial treatment because it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Let’s nerd out for a second and look at how red light therapy works.

Each color of light naturally possesses a different wavelength that penetrates the skin at a specific depth.

Light in the color wavelengths of red, amber and infrared light can actually penetrate the dermal layer, which is the layer responsible for collagen and elastin production.

In aesthetic applications, like the Trinity Wrinkle Reducer, red light is emitted through LEDs which produce light energy with very little heat, providing a non-invasive, comfortable experience for the user. It is a safe treatment option for people who wish to naturally and effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve their overall appearance.

BLUE & GREEN LIGHT THERAPY FOR SKIN

As we mentioned earlier, in addition to red light therapy, there are other colors on the spectrum of light that have benefits for your skin as well.

Blue LED Light Therapy

Blue Light Therapy is frequently used to treat mild-to-moderate acne. Blue light administered between 415 and 420 nm wavelengths reduces whiteheads and blemishes but leaves the good bacteria intact.

Green LED Light Therapy

Theoretically, green light targets melanocytes which are melanin-producing cells located in the bottom layer of the skin’s epidermis. Basically, green light targets dark circles, pigmentation, broken capillaries and sunspots. It can calm irritated or over-stimulated skin.

As you can see, whatever your skin concern, it’s likely that you can address it using light therapy.
