Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been used for more than 40 years to speed wound healing, and for the past 10 or so years is being used in skin rejuvenation procedures. But how does LED work…..or is it as good as the claims suggest?
Research has centred on elastin which is the protein responsible for skin elasticity, As we age, these elastin fibres breakdown (oh the joys) and the skin loses its bouncy bounce.
Researchers have discovered that during aging, water layers surrounding elastin fibers change and affect the elastin fibres, which may contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
By using high-intensity visible light from LEDs, researchers were able to change the molecular structure of the water layer to free up elastin. After nine weeks of daily treatment, participants had a noticeable reduction in wrinkles. The LED therapy led to rejuvenated, younger-looking, and more resilient skin, according to the researchers.
LED light therapy is the perfect standalone treatment or in adjunct with other treatments for skin rejuvenation, acne, inflammation, rosacea.
At TWR, we offer LED treatments with all of our skin treatments —microneedling; dermaplaning; peels to help improve the efficacy of those treatments and take advantage of the collagen stimulating benefits of LED.
