Light emitting diode commonly known as LED can be used in facials. Light-based treatment helps in reducing wrinkles and acne. LEDs nowadays are used in everyday items as well as in medical devices targeting skin problems. They can treat skin problems like wound healing, acne, wrinkles, and more. It also treats internal problems like arthritis or other joint or muscle pain. These treatments are safe for all skin types.
An LED mask comes with a spectrum of light with different wavelengths that penetrate the skin to make changes at the molecular level. Each spectrum of light that produces different colors targets different conditions. For example, red light is designed to increase circulation and collagen production, therefore reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The blue light targets the acne-causing bacteria, actively killing them and stopping the acne cycle. These are the two most common colors used but other colors like yellow are used to reduce redness and green is used to reduce pigmentation.
There are several benefits of LED in treatments:
- Increased collagen production
Collagen is known to be the most abundant protein in our body. Collagen improves the skin’s health; it replaces what is naturally lost with aging. It helps to smooth out wrinkles and increases the elasticity of the skin which makes it look younger.
- Treats acne effectively
The LED blue can actively kill the acne-causing bacteria and arrest the acne cycle preventing it from appearing again. It also gets rid of oily greasy skin.
- Promotes cell regeneration
Your skin is exposed to a lot of elements in the environment that cause skin damage. We can’t escape these elements but we can aid in the process of healing. LED masks promote the regeneration of cells that replace this damaged skin.
- Beautiful radiant skin
It minimizes inflammation and provides relief for several inflammatory diseases like eczema, psoriasis, etc.
Although they don’t replace your regular skin-care routine, LED light masks and devices work best when utilized to encourage collagen formation and eliminate the germs that cause acne outbreaks. To ensure your safety while treating your skin, follow the instructions and take the required safety precautions before using them, such as wearing eye protection.
