LED LIGHT THERAPY. You may have heard it referred to as blue light, red light, Omnilux or maybe Lite Luxe.
While Omnilux and Lite Luxe are actual brand names and red or blue light refers to the type of treatment (red is great for lines and wrinkles while blue is used to treat acne), essentially these are all forms of LED light therapy.
Often used as a step in professional facials (after exfoliation and before hydration), LED is a proven anti-ageing method. But what is it? "LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin, which emits therapeutic wavelengths (or colours) of light energy," Steven Marchese, product developer for LightStim told The Huffington Post Australia.
Not to be confused with laser, the light therapy was originally developed to fast-track the healing of wounds and post surgery scars. The rejuvenation of healthy skin, too, was a happy coincidence. "If the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back). Thus, LED gives the cells a 'full tank of fuel' and these fibroblast cells start to produce collagen and elastin like when one was 20-25 years old," Marchese said.
