When it comes to skincare, it can sometimes be hard to find the right combination of treatments to get the results you’re looking for. That’s why many now turn to at-home LED light therapy to save time and money. This skin treatment method usually combines different wavelengths of light in one at-home device, allowing you to treat your skin concerns quickly and efficiently without sacrificing results. 

LED light therapy devices provide a range of skin-healing and rejuvenating benefits. From stimulating collagen production to minimizing pore size, this unique method of treatment can make it easy for you to achieve your best skin ever. Having your own at-home device allows you to get professional quality results without breaking the bank.   

Here’s what you should know about this popular skincare trend.  

What is LED light therapy? How does it work?

 

What is LED light therapy? How does it work?

 

LED light therapy is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light to trigger the body’s natural processes. Its more popular benefits include healing from skin conditions such as acne, wrinkles, redness, and even sun damage. The science behind it lies in the different wavelengths of light, which penetrate the skin in varying depths depending on the color. When used correctly, LED light therapy can significantly improve the appearance and health of the skin.

What is LED light therapy?

DEFINITION

LED light therapy uses specialized LED bulbs that do not produce harmful UV radiation or heat. This treatment works by delivering light energy to the skin, which activates photoreceptors and stimulates natural cellular processes such as collagen synthesis, wound healing, and tissue regeneration. 

 

The use of light as a method of medical treatment dates back to the late 1880s through the 1900s. The use of LED bulbs, red light in particular, was further developed in the 1960s and in the 1990s. In these times, it was further solidified that high-intensity red and near-infrared LED bulbs accelerated healing by boosting the production of growth-factor proteins such as collagen and elastin. Today, all-in-one LED masks come equipped with an array of visible light colors to help address specific skin issues.

Although LED light therapy devices can be used on their own, maximum benefits are achieved when you include the treatment in your anti-aging or anti-acne skincare routines. When used in combination with other skincare products, light therapy masks can help boost your skin’s appearance and health.

How LED light therapy treats acne?

Blue light is best for managing mild to moderate acne breakouts. This wavelength acts on the hair follicle, eliminating acne-causing bacteria to prevent the formation of new pimples. While doing this, blue light also helps keep the sebaceous glands under control. This action prevents excess oil that clogs pores and causes blemishes and pimples.


While acne heals, exposure to blue light also helps calm down inflammation and redness. It soothes the skin, does not sting, or cause any uncomfortable sensation. Blue LED light therapy is a great addition to your acne-fighting routine as it works well with other skincare products giving you the best results with no side effects.

Treat occasional acne breakouts with the Project E Beauty LED Light Therapy Mask - Silicone, an ultra-comfortable LED light therapy mask that features two of the most popular rejuvenating wavelengths: blue and red. 

How LED light therapy treats wrinkles?

Among the LED light wavelengths available for treatment, the red light penetrates the deepest. How does red LED light therapy work? Red light energy targets the mitochondria - the powerhouse of the cell where all the action happens. Exposure to light energy stimulates positive responses such as enhanced collagen production. Anti-aging collagen helps fill out those dreaded creases and folds, giving you a smooth and youthful complexion.

How LED light therapy treats redness ?

The Project E Beauty Needle-Free Mesotherapy Device is a multipurpose treatment device that uses radiofrequency, electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), and LED light therapy to rejuvenate skin. 

Its LED light therapy feature includes blue, green, and red light colors. Blue has a calming and soothing effect on inflamed skin associated with mild to moderate acne. Red light enhances blood circulation which can also calm down inflammation and skin redness. LED light therapy is safe for use on skin conditions such as rosacea and eczema.  

How often should you do LED light therapy to get the best results?

 

Treatments using a LED light therapy mask or handheld device can be done up to four times a week starting with 10-minute sessions. Once favorable results are noticeable, reduce treatments to twice a week - you may do longer sessions for up to 15 minutes each.

Is LED red light therapy safe? LED light therapy is safe and non-damaging. Based on a 2018 study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, phototherapy using an LED device has an excellent safety profile. LED light mask therapy does not cause any uncomfortable sensations and it has no downtime. Unlike other in-clinic skincare treatments that bring discomfort and pain and may require a period of rest, non-invasive light therapy is a lunchtime procedure that delivers instant results.
