Just about everyone wants to find an effective way to get rid of (or at least slow down) the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other blemishes that are plaguing their skin. While you should always be putting forth a daily effort to better care for your face and skin at home, consider doing something a little extra now and again. At ReNu Med Spa in Raleigh, NC, we offer a non-invasive procedure called LED light therapy to help make your skin look better than it has in years.
What is LED light therapy?
Light Emitting Diode, or LED light therapy, consists of using specific frequencies of light to encourage tissue growth and collagen production, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
How does it work?
Our skin has the ability to absorb light, and with LED light, the skin cells are stimulated until the energy it gives off is converted to fuel. That fuel is then used to produce valuable nutrients for the production of collagen and the ability for the skin to repair itself. Two of the most common types of light used in LED light therapy are red light and blue light. Typically, red light is used for those who are looking to rejuvenate their skin and increase collagen production, whereas blue light is better suited for those with acne-prone skin. Blue light targets the bacteria that causes breakouts and helps to reduce the possibility of another flare-up.
Depending on the type of light used, benefits of LED light therapy can include:
- Increased collagen production
- Improved skin elasticity
- Increased oxygen and blood flow
- Improve uneven skin tone
- Skin clarity
- Reduce pore size
- Reduce appearance of fine line and wrinkles
ReNu Med Spa can include LED light therapy as a step in one of our custom facial treatment packages or on its own in standalone LED light therapy treatment sessions. Depending on the condition of your skin, it can take anywhere from four to six weeks to see results from LED light therapy. However, most people respond well and notice some difference in their skin within just a few sessions.
