LED or Light Emitting Diodes, were originally researched and developed by NASA. Researchers found that these lights, absorbed at different wave lengths and colors, helped the wound healing of astronauts in space. Then they discovered that LED’s helped them grow food faster in that same environment. And now, thankfully, we in the skincare industry have gotten our hands on it!
There is A LOT happening when we place these light panels over your skin. They produce a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis and have various biological effects on cells and tissues. They help restore and regain vitality to compromised cells in a natural way. The boost in cellular energy leads to a cascade of wonderful metabolic events!
Blue, red and near-infrared are the most commonly used wavelengths and exactly what our panels provide. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits.
Blue penetrates through the epidermis, or the top layer of skin, and is known to kill P. acnes bacteria and shrink oil glands, not only clearing up existing blemishes, but preventing future breakouts. We use this setting for all of our acne facials at 4-6 week intervals and 2-3 times a week as a stand alone 30 min treatment for those wanting quicker results in reducing breakouts and inflammation which decreases the chance of scarring and in some cases may prevent the use of prescription medications.
Red penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photobiostimulation of fibroblasts. If you don’t already know, fibroblasst are EVERYTHING! They synthesize collagen and produce the structural framework for our skin. They also play a huge role in wound healing which is why we may use this treatment post laser, micro-needling, chemical peel, etc. In an observational study using our LED panel to treat facial wrinkles, 80% of participants said they experienced an improvement in skin texture, 77% reported an improvement in skin firmness and 66% reported an improvement in facial wrinkles after 4 weeks.
Near-infrared penetrates deepest and increases micro-circulation (tissue repair), decreases inflammation and helps with pain relief. This wavelength creates a deeply relaxing trance like state and allows you to sit under the panel for long periods of time in deep relaxation!
Our Celluma LED panel is included in every HydraFacial treatment and can be easily added on to many other treatments. Call us or schedule a consultation to see if this amazing technology can help you reach your skincare goals!
