LED Therapy is a treatment that uses LED light waves to achieve a therapeutic effect on the skin.
The waves are produced from equipment with semiconductor crystals emitting LEDs, which promote an increase in cellular metabolism through a photochemical reaction caused by the penetration of light into superficial and deep tissues.
The wavelength determines its coloration. It is classified as a non-ablative, athermal therapy and therefore does not promote photothermolysis. It assists in tissue renewal, being used associated with cosmetics that help repair and regenerate skin cell components. It is indicated for treatments of dark circles, acne, expression lines and wrinkles and helps in inflammatory processes and in the healing phases.
The production of new collagen generates a skin tightening effect, making the technique with ultrasound waves an effective treatment to combat sagging and improve skin elasticity, especially in the face and neck.
