LED therapy uses light in the visible spectrum – including blue, yellow, amber, green, purple and red – as well as light beyond the visible spectrum to penetrate different depths of skin. As the light wavelength increases, so does the depth of penetration. This light is absorbed by receptors in the skin, just like topical skincare, and each color of light stimulates a different response in the skin. LED is suitable for use on all skin types and tones.
Red light works to soothe inflammation and redness, while deeper shades penetrate the skin further to prompt cellular repair and circulation, resulting in a plumper, more vibrant complexion.
This antibacterial light is used to kill the bacteria that leads to breakouts, making it ideal for treating acne-prone skin. Blue light also helps purify the skin and regulate oil glands. It's commonly combined with red light in at-home devices, and can often be found in targeted pens, which are ideal for bringing down breakouts.
This color works to revitalize the skin, reducing any swelling and increasing radiance.
Invisible to the naked eye, this light penetrates deeper than any other colour in the spectrum. It combats the signs of ageing by replenishing dermal and epidermal cells, stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin, and speeds up the recovery process.
