LED light therapy comes in many different colors and each color helps the skin in very unique ways. Red, infrared, yellow, and blue; each one beautifies your skin and promotes a more beautiful complexion. These LEDs have the ability to penetrate deeper than most creams making a dramatic difference in the appearance of your skin.
Red LEDs penetrate into your skin where they stimulate collagen and elastin production, speed up the healing process, boost cellular renewal, and repair damage. The skin and its many complex layers is about 2-3mm thick. Red LEDs at 660nanometers can reach depths of about 8-10mm helping your skin at the deepest levels.
Yellow LEDs don’t penetrate quite as deeply as the red LEDs but yellow light therapy has proven to be very effective at helping with rosacea, eczema, sunburns, and redness. This therapy also rejuvenates the skin promoting fewer wrinkles and a smoother texture.
Blue LEDs have an anti-bacterial effect on the skin and have been shown to actually kill the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes. Blue light therapy is very effective at treating and preventing mild to moderate acne without the use of harmful drugs or chemicals. Blue LEDs can actually cause harm to your eyes so it is imperative that you wear protective goggles when using this therapy.
Infrared LEDs have the ability to permeate even deeper than the previous shades of light therapy. It penetrates to a depth of 30-40mm where the powerful wavelengths accelerate healing, stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis, and prompt over 24 different positive responses at a cellular level.
Each one of these modalities can have a profound effect of the appearance of your skin without invasive procedures such as surgery or harmful and dangerous drugs such as Accutane. The following list offers exceptional units in each of the above colors.
