Professional LED light therapy machines use the latest technology and equipment to provide skin rejuvenation treatment. Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy is the perfect complement to a well-formulated skin care routine and helps reduce acne, alongside the appearance of ageing. Originally developed by NASA to heal wounds, the technology has been adapted to the beauty industry.
LED machines work on the principle that certain cells that cause problems such as acne are metabolically more active, producing porphyrin. Porphyrin is sensitive to certain types of light and when exposed to the lights, produces oxygen free radicals. These oxygen free radicals essentially self-destruct and so remove the problem cells without damaging normal healthy skin. LED light treatments work by sending these energy-producing transmissions of light into the deep layers of the skin. The treatments are also known as Photodynamic therapy or PDT.
Blue and red light therapy produces different benefits for clients and using a range of coloured light heads; salons can provide a variety of treatments. Specifically, blue light is used for acne treatments, while the red light is effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
How it works: Blue light machines treat acne by targeting specific bacteria strains that are often the leading cause of acne in many people. The light stimulates the development of oxygen radicals. These radicals kill the bacteria responsible for most forms of acne without damaging the skin. By stimulating the skin’s natural response, the blue light treatment is natural and gentle on the healthy sensitive skin. Many people report that the light is cool and refreshing, unlike other acne treatments which can leave unsightly swelling or rashes. It is considered an excellent alternative for people who cannot tolerate topical application of disinfections or prescription products.
Red light treatments provide wavelengths of red light which improve the skin’s barrier function. It does this through improving its ability to retain the minerals and elements required to heal. Through this method, production of new collagen is stimulated especially for skin which has slowed production through age or damage. The Red LED light can also target the skin’s oil glands, which reduces cytokines. This pro-inflammatory substance plays a significant role in chronic acne and reducing this oil provides additional support when treating chronic acne.
Both blue and red light therapy sessions treat common acne and skin problems. However, while blue light techniques only specifically handle acne, red light treatments enable a salon to help clients struggling with both acne and ageing. Red Light professional LED light therapy machines provide a range of benefits with each treatment session. Salons using the LED light variations are able to provide treatments for:
