Evolution Lash Studio and Spa prides itself on top of the line skin care treatment. That is why we are overly excited to share this week’s blog with our clients on LED Light Therapy Treatment for rejuvenating skin. What is all the hype you may ask? It is an effective way to get that healthy glow and younger-looking skin without needles—plus, celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas famously created an LED light bed that's Vogue-approved and sought-after by A-listers, so Evolution had to bring it to you!
First off – LED stands for: Light Emitting Diode. An LED is a light source that emits infrared light (and thereby, heat) when activated. LED lights come in different spectrums, including red and blue infrared. What are the difference in LED light colors? Red is the most universal LED light, which stimulates collagen and accelerates healing. This is a great treatment for improving skin texture, tone, acne, and aging. The blue light goes the deepest into the skin, it penetrates a few millimeters deeper than the others. This also tightens and tones skin while reducing inflammation. This is great for those of us with inflamed acne. When receiving the LED treatment, you will be under the light for about 20 minutes, fully relaxed (most of our clients fall asleep!)
When the 20-minute light therapy is over, the treatment is completed with a high-frequency tool to “zap” bacteria and those blemishes our esthetician can visibly see coming through your skin. "If the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which gives the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back). Thus, LED gives the cells a 'full tank of fuel' and these fibroblast cells start to produce collagen and elastin like when one was 20-25 years old," said Steven Marchese, product developer for LightStim told The Huffington Post Australia.
