Red Light Therapy For the Face – 5 Exciting Anti-Aging Benefits For Every Skin Type
While the fountain of youth is still a myth, we may be closer to finding it than ever before, and we're not talking about Botox or Juvederm. Red light therapy for wrinkles can help reduce the signs of aging and give you a youthful, healthy glow. But red light therapy isn't just for removing fine lines and wrinkles.
LED Red Light Therapy Benefits
1. Stimulates Collagen Production
Red light therapy uses the red wavelength of the electromagnetic spectrum which is between 630 to 700 nanometers. This wavelength is perfect for penetrating the skin and stimulating cells to make collagen.
Collagen is a connective tissue that gives skin it's elasticity. But as we age, the skin loses its ability to bounce back, which eventually leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Our red light photofacial therapy uses a combination of infrared light, amber, and red electromagnetic wavelengths to stimulate collagen production, giving your skin a smooth appearance.
2. Increases Circulation
LED red light therapy increases circulation and improves blood flow. This allows immune cells to travel around the body more efficiently which can help reduce the inflammation that causes redness and puffiness in the face and around the eyes. It can also help reduce the number of broken capillaries, spider, and varicose veins under the skin.
3. Stimulates the Healing Process
As we age, our skin's (and body's!) ability to heal diminishes, meaning if you have acne, rosacea, or other skin problems, it won't heal as quickly as when you were in your early 20s. Red light therapy can help improve your skin's ability to heal acne scars and blemishes as well as damage from the sun.
4. Evens Skin Tone
Dark circles under your eyes and yellow patches around your cheekbones can make you look fatigued and older than you really are. Red light can help even out your skin tone, making dark circles and yellow patches less prominent and fading the look of scars and stretch marks. This gives you a youthful glow that looks like it's coming from the inside out.
5. Stimulates Hair Growth
Red light therapy isn't just for women. Men with patchy facial hair can benefit from red light therapy as well. It can help stimulate hair growth, filling in those unsightly patches.
