LED light therapy is a treatment that uses advanced light technology to treat a variety of conditions. LED lights can be used to treat both acne and rosacea, and if you are dealing with either of these conditions, it may be just what you have been looking for to help your situation.
What are LED Lights?
LED stands for “light-emitting diode,” and it is a type of light developed by NASA. Scientists at NASA found that red light emitted by diodes could stimulate plant germination and treat injured astronauts in space. They found that different wavelengths of light could be used to treat different conditions including wrinkles and rosacea.
Different colors and wavelengths of light have different effects and benefits. The mitochondria in skin cells absorb the light and convert it into energy. In short, LED light therapy at our office can make the skin more elastic and youthful-looking. It also reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation in the face.
LED light therapy helps rosacea patients further by making their skin less dry and prone to flare-ups and by making their skin tone more even. During LED light therapy, the light will harmlessly pass through the epidermis to reach the layers beneath the surface.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
LED light therapy is performed in the comfort of our office. Most patients will need a series of treatment sessions for optimal results. These sessions are spaced out a set amount of time apart. Once the condition is under control, the patient may want to get treatments every or month or two to maintain that control. LED light treatments are not that uncomfortable. In fact, they’re said to be quite soothing and relaxing.
Some patients combine their LED light therapy with other treatments, such as skin creams. Since some creams can increase a patient’s sensitivity to light, they should talk to our specialist in order to make sure this won’t cause unwanted side effects.
