Yes, you heard correctly, LED lights have made their way into the skin care world and we’re about to give you all the deets.
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy, simply put, is a noninvasive skin treatment that uses varying LED wavelengths to trigger the skin’s natural healing process thus helping to treat acne, reduce inflammation and sun damage, promote anti-aging effects and other skin problems.
There are different wavelengths of light in LED lights. Here at Oasis Face Bar we use the blue and red lights for our LED light therapy treatments.
Blue LED light helps to reduce activity in the sebaceous glands, the oil-producing glands in the skin, thus decreasing the oil that is produced which causes acne. In addition, the blue light helps to kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne caused by inflammation. It is also believed that blue light can improve the healing of burns.
Red LED light is great for improving the look of scars and signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. The RED LED light works by acting on fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen production. As you age, your collagen levels decrease, thus showing signs of aging. In addition, the red light can also reduce inflammation in your skin.
Is LED Light Therapy Safe?
Since LED light does not contain UV rays, which are harmful to the skin, this treatment is safe for all colors and types of skin and can be used on a regular basis.
What Skin Conditions Can LED Light Therapy Help to Treat?
Signs of aging - fine lines, wrinkles and age spots
As you can see, LED Light Therapy can be a great addition to your skin care treatments. Whether you’re looking to treat a specific skin condition or just to combat early signs of aging, Oasis Face Bar is ready to see you for your facial and LED light treatment.
