LED (light-emitting diode) light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that enters the skin’s layers to improve the skin.

Clinically proven that the wavelengths of light stimulate specific cells within the body resulting in reduction in wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, general dyschromia of the skin, and acne lesions.

It also stimulates blood flow and the penetration and activation of skincare products applied to the skin.

LED light therapy uses various wavelengths that correspond to different visible colors. Each color penetrates the skin at different depths.

  • Red light therapy: Red light is commonly used to decrease inflammation and promote healing by increasing blood flow. In addition to improving your skin, red light can also help reduce pain in your muscles. Red light treatments often contain “near infrared” wavelengths as well, and they are used to treat age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Blue light therapy: Blue light decreases inflammation. It can also kill bacteria and other microbes under the skin, and reduce activity in the glands that produce oil on your skin. Blue light is often combined with violet wavelengths and is commonly used to treat acne.
  • Amber light therapy: Also called yellow light, amber light therapy targets the most superficial layer of your skin. These wavelengths reduce inflammation, skin sensitivity, and redness.
  • Green light therapy: Green light targets both the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. These wavelengths stimulate healing and improve skin firmness. They also help decrease the production of melanin—the natural pigment that gives skin its color. Melanin can cause dark spots on your skin.
