Originally developed by researchers at NASA to speed wound healing in astronauts, LED light is now being used to declare war on wrinkles, banish blemishes, diminish the affects of rosacea and even assist in the reduction of pain. LED light therapy is not only highly effective in combating many skin problems but is also a noninvasive, painless and requires no down time.
WAR ON WRINKLES
Reduced collagen production is one of the most devastating effects of the aging process for our skin. Loss of collagen and elastic results in expression lines, sagging skin and deeper wrinkles. Red LED light can boost cellular metabolism thereby promoting circulation and stimulating fibroblasts, which in turn increase collagen and elastin production , fade age spots and freckles, refine fine lines and wrinkles and reduce redness and inflammation. In addition Red LED light not only improves collagen production but also reduces collagenase, the enzyme that destroys collagen fibers.
Many who suffer from acne seek aggressive treatments that are often accompanied by severe negative side effects. LED light therapy offers a gentler, healthier way of dealing with acne. Blue LED light offers healing properties and sanitizes the skin. The blue light provides penetrating molecules that react to free radicals and destroy acne bacteria. Red and blue light combined together can increase circulation and nutrient transfer, vacate free radicals and decrease inflammation.
As of yet, there is no cure for Rosacea. However studies have shown LED light can relieve many rosacea symptoms, including reducing inflammation and even repair damaged capillaries. Ongoing care with LED light may keep the symptoms of rosacea under control.
NOT ALL LED LIGHT SYSTEMS ARE THE SAME
Zen Body & Skin uses the Revitalight Skin care system, a medical grade LED light system that is FDA approved for red, amber and blue light. The Revitalight Skincare System was developed by electronic engineers working in conjunction with dermatologists. The Revitalight Skincare System uses photopulsation technology allowing people to have an effective and safe, non-invasive cosmetic skin care application in the comfort and convenience of a salon or spa.
The Revitalight Skincare System allows salons and spas to offer their clients a skin care treatment that is:
- Technological advanced
- Safe, utilizing LED lights, sanitized covers and treatment signals
- Effective, gradually improving the appearance of the skin
- Painless, involving no recovery time
- Affordable, a cosmetic treatment far less costly than medical procedures
LED light is not a "face lift" or a quick fix. Many people see and feel a difference in their skin in just the first treatment, however a gradual improvement in skin takes place over the course of several treatments. Zen Body & Skin recommends 6 LED light treatments 7-10 days apart and after that maintenance treatment every 6 - 8 weeks. A good home skin care regiment is necessary to prolong results.
LED light is an excellent enhancement to just about any skin care procedure including ultrasonic exfoliation, facials and chemical peels.
