Using LED light in cosmetology: myth or reality?
Numerous scientific and clinical studies prove the repairing, vitalizing and rejuvenating effect of LED photomodulation (Light Emitting Diode), giving rise to a new treatment area called Dynamic Phototherapy (DPT).
The basic principle underlying light therapy is that used by plants during photosynthesis. Just as the plant uses chlorophyll to convert the sun into a structural support, LEDs trigger intracellular and physiological biochemical reactions that activate collagen production in the skin. This collagen production is essential for maintaining the cutaneous cellular matrix.
LED light gives excellent results when photorejuvenating the skin.
In the 1960s, NASA had already studied its biostimulant effect on metabolism. Its use in aesthetic medicine began in 2004. It is in fact derived from non-thermal infrared lasers (or soft lasers) widely used since the 1980s for their anti-inflammatory and healing properties, these lasers themselves being derived from so-called infrared lamps used for the same purpose for over 50 years. These infra red lamps actually emit a combination of colours ranging from blue to close infra red, in the same wavelengths as those used with LEDs. In short, this technique benefits from such a setback that the discovery of a long-term side effect can be ruled out.
LEDs, thanks to their different wavelengths, which also determine different colours, can be used in the following indications and situations:
anti-inflammatory and sterilizing effect in acne
reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
skin tone improvement
overall texture improvement
increases healing and reduces inflammation during invasive procedures
improvement of blood circulation and detoxification
overall anti-aging effect
hair follicle strengthening
activation of cell regeneration
decreases the fall
improvement of stretch marks
