LED Light Therapy and your Skin

Written by Brittany Wielgosz

LED (Light Emitting Diode) Light Therapy sends infrared light waves of varying wavelengths (colours) into the skin, causing heat and triggering intracellular activity that can treat a variety of skin conditions. An LED is actually an electrical device with two electrodes through which electricity flows, transmitting a current, that emits visible light. The particular wavelength, intensity, duration and timing are all important and generate various reactions in the application of skincare modalities.

  • Green Light - Targets dark circles, pigmentation, broken capillaries and sun spots. It also works to calm irritated and over-stimulated skin.
  • Blue Light - Eliminates acne vulgaris (the bacteria responsible for causing spots), while leaving the good, healthy bacteria intact. 
  • Red Light - Triggers collagen production, which is responsible for elasticity and the firmness of the skin. It also increases blood circulation and decreases inflammation. Red light has been found to jump-start the repair mechanisms and cellular growth commonly associated with aging skin problems thus promoting skin rejuvenation.
