Regardless of who we are, it’s completely natural to come into contact with a multitude of skin concerns, particularly when it comes to our faces. And whether these complexion-compromising conditions are influenced by genetic, environmental, hormonal or lifestyle factors, they can be the source of great discomfort and misery for those of us affected.

Thankfully, there’s an all-bases-covered solution to the seemingly endless range of problems our skin can encounter as we move through life: LED light therapy.

Successful in its management of recognised skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and psoriasis as well as dealing with sensitivity, inflammation and the more visible signs of ageing, including fine lines and wrinkles, LED light therapy really can do it all. But just what is it and how does it work?

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy is a non-invasive solution to almost every skin concern imaginable. As one of the go-to skin treatments for many an admiring celebrity, this is something that can be performed both at home (with the use of a specially-designed mask) or in the more accomplished hands of a clinic-based skincare professional.

Regardless of how you choose to undergo LED light therapy, its effects are much the same. Penetrating the skin with a range of different wavelengths, the light energy contained within this treatment provides an essential boost to the body’s natural processes of repair. This results in skin that appears refreshed and rejuvenated, with an entire range of nagging conditions effectively managed without the need for more extreme forms of intervention and their accompanying downtime.

How does LED Light Therapy work?

LED light therapy draws on the impressive ways in which different wavelengths can have a positively nourishing effect on our skin. These coloured wavelengths are as follows:

Red Light:

Red light is effective in treating rosacea and the areas of redness and inflammation that are symptomatic of this condition. This wavelength also works to eliminate the more general appearance of puffed-up and sore-looking skin and is useful in aiding rehydration, boosting the process of skin renewal and shrinking enlarged pores.

Blue Light:

Acne, eczema and psoriasis can be adequately tackled by the power of blue light. This wavelength directly targets bacteria in order to manage some of the factors that influence acne and to stop future breakouts from occurring.

Near Infra-Red Light:

As the wavelength that most deeply penetrates the skin, near infra-red light reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, solves the problem of inflammation, boosts skin elasticity and speeds up the process of wound healing.
