09 07, 2021 | in Skincare

Light emitting diode, or LED, therapy treats the skin with different light wavelengths using red and blue light as well as amber and green. NASA developed the technology for plant growth testing during shuttle missions. Later, researchers found that it was good for wounds. Today, estheticians use LED light therapy to regenerate aging skin and to treat skin problems like acne, aging skin, even rosacea.

Why LED is Good for Your Aging Skin

Red LED light encourages collagen growth in the body by stimulating fibroblast cells, which are the cells that produce collagen. This type of light therapy also decreases redness, bruising and swelling. Red light therapy may reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while making your face feel softer and look smoother.
