How does LED light therapy work?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) delivers optimised light at a specific wavelength to stimulate the creation of collagen and elastin, eliminate collagenase (the enzyme responsible for ageing), increase blood flow, and achieve a rejuvenated, radiant, and healthy appearance. Here's how each LED light colour treats the skin and different skin concerns:

Red LED Light

The red light acts as an anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation therapy. The infrared uses a long wavelength, activating cell regeneration, fibroblasts and stimulating the creation of collagen and elastin. As a result, it helps to substantially reduce wrinkles and fine lines; closes large pores; and slows down ageing of the skin.

Blue LED Light

Blue light acts as a powerful anti-acne treatment, working to cure blemishes by starting at the root cause: the bacteria that causes acne. The blue wavelength can penetrate the skin and produce radical oxygen that destroys the bacteria Propionibacterium Acnes.

Purple LED Light

A combination of red and blue light creates purple light, which helps eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation, and improves healing and circulation of blood. As a result, purple light is highly recommended after aggressive and invasive treatments (such as Botox, fillers, or lasers), since it considerably reduces inflammation and marks. It also helps wound healing and reduces visible acne and acne marks.

Yellow LED Light

Yellow light stimulates lymphatic circulation, improves the oxygenation of the cells, and favours the immune system. As a result, it helps reduce redness (couperose) and irritation; regulates sensitive skin; and increases the luminosity and softness of the skin. Yellow light also stimulates the nervous system, improving muscle and tissue tone. As a result, it has a highly firming and tightening effect on the skin.

Green LED Light

The green light helps to control hyperpigmentation of the skin and has a great regenerative power of skin nutrients damaged by sun and age. The green light acts against the melanocytes, the melanin-forming cells in the inner part of the epidermis, inhibiting the production of excess melanin. As a result, it helps eliminate dark spots on the skin and is highly beneficial for people suffering from hyperpigmentation, melasma, and vitiligo. Dark scars are lightened and skin tone is equal with expression lines reduced.

As great as it sounds, LED Light isn't a (colourful) magic wand that is going to fix skin concerns overnight. However, after several sessions with continued use and as part of a wider treatment plan, amazing results can be achieved.

Here's what Kate, Face the Future's registered Nurse Independent Prescriber, had to say about LED light therapy:

“In clinic we use LED light primarily for inflammatory skin conditions, particularly things like rosacea, diffused redness, and damage to the acid mantle (as a result of over exfoliation or overstimulation of the skin). LEDs are an essential component in our skin clinic and can be used in isolation or as part of a treatment program for repairing and maintaining healthy skin."
