If you are looking for anti-aging remedies, you won’t have to look hard. From creams to plastic surgery and everything in between, there are countless options that claims to turn back the hands of time. While you may be quite familiar with fillers, chemical peels and even microdermabrasion, how much do you know about light therapy for anti-aging? Red light therapy is becoming increasingly popular for its non-invasive yet powerful benefits towards youthful, healthy skin.
What Is Red Light Therapy?
Red light therapy uses a type of LED light to encourage your skin cells to perform better and more effectively. Light therapy can be adjusted with various wavelengths and colors of light according to a patient’s unique skin care needs. For example, blue light therapy is known for treating acne and red light therapy is better for decreasing fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving the firmness, elasticity and texture of the skin.
The light therapy works by triggering your body to produce more of the proteins that give your skin its youthful resilience. Specifically, red light stimulates fibroblasts, which are cells in the dermis layer of the skin. This causes an increased production of collagen and elastin – two components that we lose as we age.
Benefits of Red Light Therapy
Beyond the fact that red light therapy is easy and painless to receive, this aesthetic treatment also offers the following benefits towards your facial skin:
• Reduces inflammation
• Promotes healthy circulation
• Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
• Increases skin’s firmness and elasticity
