LED lights and the skin
Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications. Skinspirations offers LED light therapy with the Celluma Pro LED device. The Celluma has been approved by the FDA for multiple indications including arthritis, muscle and joint pain, diminished local circulation, and inflammatory acne.
LED therapy is also known for its ability to rejuvenate skin and decrease inflammation. Blue, red, and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED light therapy. These specific wavelengths are well-researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill the P. acnes bacteria. Red reaches into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production. Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases tissue repair, decreases inflammation, and reduces pain.
