Redl Light Therapy - Red light helps depigmentation especially in places where they already created problems in form of age-spots.
This type of skin treatment is quite unknown, because of the domination of pharmaceutical industry, although it has been used for decades in hospitals for treating very serious problems and skin diseases.
NASA scientists have studied the effects of LEDs in the 1990s, primarily dealing with the influence of light on plants which were on space stations, and later in treating humans, since they discovered that red LED effect helps faster healing of skin wounds. The effect of light is very similar on plants and humans, primarily because of the ability of the skin to absorb light of certain wavelength, which as a light source, stimulates regeneration.
Regular light treatments stimulate collagen formation - the most common protein in our body. Its essential role lies in healing of damaged tissue and replacing the old one. It is a substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity.
This therapy can also stimulate the activity of fibroblasts, which are present in all connective tissues and are capable of forming a collagen fibre.
Red light stimulates the circulation on the application area, so the new capillaries are being formatted, which further accelerates all processes, bringing more oxygen and nutrients needed for proper nutrition and treatment.
Stimulation and release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as the main carrier of energy that triggers chemical reactions in cells take place in the process of treating skin with red light.
At the same time, there is an increased activity in the lymphatic system, so the process of elimination through lymphatic routes under the influence of light therapy is doubled, and the toxins are discharged out of our body more quickly.
Light affects the rapid synthesis of RNA and DNA, which further supports faster regeneration of damaged cells.
The use of devices with red LEDs in cosmetics helps in:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the face
- Reduction of wrinkles around the eyes
- Removal of stains on the skin
- General improvement of skin colour
- Regeneration / stimulation of collagen production
- Establishing of natural collagen activity in cells
- Activation of fibroblast cells for collagen and elastin production
- Helps to treat sun damaged skin
- Creation of skin moisture, which further leads to filling up wrinkles
- Increases circulation, creating a healthier looking skin
- Reduction of pores
- Stimulation and activation of metabolic processes in skin cells
- Reduction of overall redness and dilation of capillaries
The benefits of this therapy are:
- The safety and efficiency for all skin types
- Non-invasive methods
- No side effects
- It is completely painless
- A short period of treatment, 10-15 min
- Reliable and clinically proven method
- Accessible and economical
In practice, numerous devices are used both large for clinical use and smaller for the use in cosmetics even at home.
Usually, large devices are intended only for one kind of light, while smaller ones have a combination of lights for different purposes.
Blue light is used to treat acne and inflammations on the skin; it has a soothing effect on the body and affects cell growth as well as rejuvenation process.
Yellow light has a cleansing effect and supports endocrine functions of the body. Using yellow light the skin seems more even and tighter, and also can provide a bleaching effect.
Red light penetrates deep into the skin and stimulates production of collagen and elastin. It stimulates the natural process of rejuvenation, and visibly improves the structure of the skin. It leads to disappearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The combination of red and blue light is scientifically proven the best combination in the treatment of acne vulgaris.
Blue and yellow light shows excellent results in treating inflammation and swelling in the tissues.
Red and yellow light increases blood circulation and fluids in tissues. Toxins are rapidly degraded and discharged from the body. Blue, yellow and red light rejuvenates the skin, activates cell activity and cleanse the body.
