Red/Blue LED light therapy
You’ve heard the term “LED,” which is an acronym for “light-emitting diode” and typically refers to light bulbs.
But LEDs can do a lot more than brighten up a room. They’re also used in light therapy, a non-invasive treatment for a wide range of health issues.
When used for facials, LED light therapy is a rising natural therapy, a gentle, painless, non-invasive technology that works for everyone no matter the age or skin tone and is proven to erase fine lines, stimulate collagen, treat acne and improve skin tone and clarity. An essential treatment in every skincare regime that can be used as a stand-alone treatment with a collagen mask and can also work seamlessly when combined with other treatments, such as RF, ENI, and EMS, making it one of the most versatile beauty solutions.
LED therapy is the only non-invasive beauty treatment without any side effects!!
Electromagnetic radiation spans a broad range of wavelengths. A very small part of this spectrum can be seen by the human eye i.e. between the wavelengths 380 and 750 nm. This part of the electromagnetic spectrum is called visible light. Humans perceive the different wavelengths of visible light as different colours.
Each color signifies distinct wavelengths of light, which penetrate the epidermis at different depths.
Above the visible light spectrum is near-infrared (NIR) from about 700nm to a little over 1,100nm. Most research showing benefits of red light and near-infrared light have used wavelengths in the ranges of 620-680nm and 800-880nm.
A 2017 study by researchers from the UK found that visible red wavelengths — including 610, 630, 650, and 670 nm red light — can absorb into the skin to a maximum depth of between 4 and 5 mm.
Red light (600nm–700nm) absorbs into the skin and underlying tissues where it stimulates the metabolic activity of the body’s cells including skin cells. It also increases microcirculation and promotes collagen and elastin production to improve skin texture. Red light is the go-to for anti-aging LED devices. It is used to treat a variety of skin conditions including aging, sun damage such as dark spots, sagging skin, chronic skin disorders.
Blue light (400nm–470nm) has antibacterial properties, making it a great treatment for acne. While effective at killing bacteria on the skin, blue light doesn’t absorb into the tissues deeply enough to have any other noticeable effects on skin health.
Our Skinreverse® Advanced Dermalift and Skinreverse® Eyecare devices use RED Light with a wavelength of 623 nanometers, that penetrates deep within the skin, to stimulate collagen, enhance cell repair, and calm redness. Collagen production is boosted, while damaged tissue is repaired. Enlarged pores look smaller and less visible. They also use BLUE Light with a wavelength of 465 nanometers, where it kills blemish-causing bacteria while easing inflammation and preventing future breakouts (making it ideal for acne-prone skin), reduces oil production and minimizes redness.
