LED light therapy to rejuvenate ageing skin

Rejuvenate- Near Infra-Red light

Your skin has the ability to absorb infrared light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. Near Infra Red works by activating the body’s own natural rejuvenation processes to counteract the signs of aging by activating local cellular metabolism, improving moisture retention, promoting circulation and stimulating the skin’s fibroblasts which leads to a natural increase in collagen and elastin production which can improve skin tone and texture, help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce redness and inflammation and promotes brighter, smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This treatment targets the building blocks of the skin, the result continues to improve over the following weeks and months. Biologists have found that cells exposed to near infrared from LEDs, which is energy just outside the visible range grow 150-200 percent faster than cells not stimulated by such light. The light rays increase energy inside cells that speed up the healing process.     The use of LED therapy in the treatment of aged skin. BACKGROUND: LED therapy is an increasingly popular  treatment of sun damage. Combination use of light wavelengths reported to stimulate collagen and accelerate fibroblast-myofibroblast transformation may display a rejuvenative effect. OBJECTIVE: To clinically assess reduction in sun damage signs following a 5-week course of LED therapy and to assess subject’s perception of the treatment. METHODS: Thirteen subjects with wrinkles or fine lines received nine 20-min duration light treatments. The treatments combined wavelengths of 633 and 830 nm. Sun-damage reduction was assessed at 6, 9, and 12 weeks by clinical photography and patient satisfaction scores. RESULTS: At 12-week follow-up, 91% of subjects reported improved skin tone, and 82% reported enhanced smoothness of skin in the treatment area.
