Top 3 Benefits of LED Light Therapy
Chances are you have likely seen a whole host of celebrities from Victoria Beckham to Kourtney Kardashian endorsing LED light therapy. But what are these weird, and slightly scary-looking facemasks doing and why should I jump on the bandwagon?
LED light therapy exposes the skin to different wavelengths of light to trigger the skin’s natural healing process. Not only do certain wavelengths help improve skin condition, but they are also scientifically proven to boost mood and reduce stress. We break down the top 3 benefits of LED Light Therapy below…
Studies have shown that LED Light Therapy is more than skin deep, but can help to reduce stress. LED Light Therapy helps balance cortisol (otherwise known as our stress hormone), as well as triggering our happy hormones such as dopamine and serotonin.
Serotonin helps to reset our circadian rhythm i.e. our sleep cycle and also boosts nitric oxide darting around our bodies. Nitric oxide is one of the most important molecules for blood vessel health. In short, LED therapy can help us feel better, think better, sleep better, have less anxiety and experience fewer symptoms of depression. We love to use faceLITE LED mask before bed, treating it as a 10-minute meditative experience. Not only do you feel calmer, but you know your skin is getting a lot of love at the same time.
2. Reduce inflammation
There is a vast range of different wavelengths from green, orange, yellow to blue, red and near-infrared. We think, alongside other leading LED Therapy Masks suppliers, that red and near-infrared are the safest and most effective for at-home treatment.
Red (633nm) and near infra-red (830nm) wavelengths are clinically proven to penetrate deep into the skin helping to improve overall skin health. The wavelengths encourage healing, cell regeneration and soothe inflammation.
3. Reduce the appearance of wrinkles
Yes, we know that wrinkles are dictated in part by genetics and by the environmental stressors we inflict on the skin (sun exposure being one!), however, LED Light Therapy can help reduce their appearance. Red and near-infrared wavelengths stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, the light stimulates blood flow and nutrient exchange, keeping the skin hydrated and healthier.
In one study conducted by the makers of faceLITE LED Masks, 96% of users said their fine lines and wrinkles appear less visible after using the mask 3x a week for 4 weeks. With 95% also saying their skin appears plumper and brighter.
