LED light therapy is a popular and non-invasive skin treatment for acne, sun damage, sores and other skin problems.
People can choose to do LED light therapy in a dermatologist's office or use a device at home.
The treatment uses different wavelengths of light to trigger the skin's natural healing processes and repair it. It does not contain UV rays, which can be harmful to the skin. Therefore, LED therapy is suitable for regular use.
A terapia com luz LED pode ajudar a tratar uma variedade de problemas de pele, incluindo: acne, dermatite, eczema, psoríase, rosácea, cicatrizes, sinais de envelhecimento (rugas e manchas da idade) e outras condições inflamatórias da pele.
Experts believe that blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil-producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil, which possibly improve acne symptoms.
Blue light can also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne, causing inflammation.
Red LED light can improve scars and signs of aging as well as wrinkles. This effect results from its action at the level of fibroblasts, skin cells responsible for collagen production.
Collagen is a protein in the skin and other connective tissues. Plays a role in skin healing. The body produces less collagen as the person ages, which causes the skin to show signs of aging.
Red light also reduces inflammation of the skin.
