LED, which stands for light-emitting diode is becoming more and more prominent in salons, spas, clinics and practices as a hi-tech facial treatment for rectifying common skin concerns such as acne, inflammation/redness, wrinkles, pigmentation, photodamage and uneven skin tone. Scientific studies have demonstrated how specific wavelengths of coloured LED light offer a range of healing and regenerative benefits for human cells, resulting in a rapid spike in demand within the cosmetic and aesthetics industry for LED systems that can assist with the promotion of skin health, skin preservation and anti-ageing.
The most commonly used LED therapy treatments consist of RED light, BLUE light or a combination of both – though more advanced devices offer a range of LED colours for a more tailored approach to client skin concerns.
Active benefits of LED light colours
BLUE – Blue LED light acts as an astringent treatment that targets the strain of acne-causing bacteria to reduce breakouts and inflammation without harming surrounding healthy tissue
RED – Red LED, the ‘anti-ageing’ light works to stimulate production of collagen and elastin to smooth out wrinkles, plump skin, promote cellular renewal and invigorate blood and lymphatic flow for a youthful appearance and healthy glow
GREEN – A great detoxifying colour, green LED light is also used for the treatment of hyperpigmentation and as an anti-inflammatory and skin soother
YELLOW – To boost the anti-ageing benefits of RED light, yellow light can further help to rejuvenate ageing skin and improve skin elasticity, firmness and muscle tone
