What Is Light Therapy?
Light Therapy- lighting uses calming and relaxing light rays that stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, proteins with a high elasticity level that are used to repair damaged tissue, diminish lines, creases, furrows and crow’s feet. Light Therapy also increases circulation by relaxing the blood vessels in the treated areas, allowing the blood to flow more easily. This further helps to prevent and treat wrinkles as increased circulation encourages the production of new skin cells. The light also refines pore size and skin texture without painful peels, surgery or injections, and has been proven to fade age spots, scars, and control melasma and hyper pigmentation.
HOW SKIN REJUVENATION WORKS:
The initial effects are clearer, brighter and tighter feeling skin; while the long-term effects are improved skin clarity, tone and texture, reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles (as well as the puffiness). It also minimizes the effects from environmental damage and chronological aging. Overtime Light Therapy will help with the restoration of tired-looking skin, diminished freckles, age spots and acne, evened out pigmentation, it minimizes the size of facial pores, improves the appearance of weathered skin, it also helps improve the skin’s supportive structure and last but not least it stimulates collagen synthesis. There is NO down time with Light Therapy because there is no UV light involved.
Two (2) times a week for the first four (4) weeks consisting of ten (10) treatments, which are dependent on the age and condition of the skin, the best results are achieved over a 12 week period. Of course, results depend on the length of treatments and the original condition of the skin being treated. If maintenance treatments are discontinued then you will see a gradual loss of will occur overtime, as it does with normal aging skin.
How it works on ACNE:
Thirty (30) minute treatment of continuous waves that is designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce the propionibacterium acnes and the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. Fifteen minutes (15) of blue light which enters the sebaceous glands and singlet oxygen is created; which in turn kills the bacteria. Next, you’re exposed to fifteen minutes (15) of red light; which aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring. The blue light and red light helps remove the bacteria that causes acne and generates cellular activity; which helps deal with age spots & sun damage.
How Light therapy works FOR PAIN RELIEF:
The cells in the area that is exposed to light absorbs photons and transform their energy into adenosine triphospahte (ATP), the form of energy that is utilized by cells.
The resulting ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; and restore homeostasis (balance).
The result is that the absorbed energy is used to repair the tissue, reduce pain, improve circulation and restore normalcy to impaired biological processes.
In addition to accelerated healing, the penetrating light activates the production of endorphins and blocks the pain-transmitting chemicals.
Originally discovered by NASA for this purpose, Light Therapy is now used by professional athletes to promote healing with powerful results. It’s been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible red and infrared lights have been shown to affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level. Light Therapy activates production of endorphin’s and blocks pain-transmitting chemicals, causing non-narcotic analgesia. Recent studies have proven the efficacy of 660nm and 880nm LED’s in the management of sports and muscle injuries, and pain.
