What are the types of LED light therapy?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) therapy for skin uses different wavelengths of light to address various skin concerns. There are several types of LED light therapy for skin, each with its specific benefits:

  1. Red Light Therapy: Red light (wavelengths around 620-700 nanometers) is commonly used for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. It can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, and promote overall skin firmness.
  2. Blue Light Therapy: Blue light (wavelengths around 400-495 nanometers) is often used to target acne and bacterial infections on the skin. It can help kill the acne-causing bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), and reduce inflammation.
  3. Green Light Therapy: Green light (wavelengths around 495-570 nanometers) is used for various skincare concerns, including hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. It can help even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of redness and pigmented spots.
  4. Yellow Light Therapy: Yellow light (wavelengths around 570-590 nanometers) is used to reduce redness, inflammation, and skin irritation. It can be beneficial for sensitive skin and conditions like rosacea.
  5. Near-Infrared Light Therapy: Near-infrared light (wavelengths around 700-1200 nanometers) can penetrate deeper into the skin and is often used for pain relief and wound healing. It may also have some skin rejuvenation benefits by stimulating collagen production.
  6. Combination Light Therapy: Some LED devices combine multiple wavelengths to target multiple skin concerns simultaneously. For example, you might find devices that use both red and blue light to address both anti-aging and acne-related issues.

LED light therapy is considered safe and non-invasive, making it suitable for various skin types and conditions. However, results can vary depending on the specific treatment and the individual’s skin. During your consultation, our expert dermatologist will help you determine the most suitable type of LED therapy for your specific needs and to ensure that the treatment is performed safely and effectively.

What are the benefits of LED therapy?

  1. Acne treatment: LED therapy can help reduce acne by killing acne-causing bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes). This can lead to a decrease in inflammation and the appearance of pimples.
  2. Skin rejuvenation: This type of phototherapy can stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a more youthful appearance.
  3. Hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone: Certain wavelengths of LED light can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and uneven skin tone by inhibiting the production of excess melanin in the skin.
  4. Wound healing: LED therapy can promote the healing of wounds and injuries by increasing blood circulation and stimulating the production of fibroblasts and collagen, which are essential for tissue repair.
  5. Reducing redness and inflammation: Infrared light and certain red light wavelengths can help soothe and reduce redness associated with conditions like rosacea and sensitive skin.
  6. Minimizing the appearance of scars: LED therapy can help improve the texture and appearance of scars, including those from acne, surgery, or injuries, by promoting collagen production and tissue repair.
  7. Pain management: In addition to its skincare benefits, LED therapy is sometimes used for pain relief and to reduce inflammation associated with conditions like arthritis or muscle pain.
  8. Non-invasive and painless: LED therapy is a non-invasive and painless procedure that doesn’t require needles, surgery, or the use of harsh chemicals. It’s generally considered safe for most skin types and doesn’t involve downtime.
  9. Minimal side effects: LED therapy typically has minimal side effects, making it a low-risk option for many people. It doesn’t cause skin damage or require a recovery period.
  10. Can be used in combination with other treatments: LED therapy can complement other skincare treatments and products, such as serums and creams, to enhance their effectiveness.

What happens during treatment session?

During an LED light therapy session at Novomed, several key steps and processes take place:

  1. Consultation: Your treatment session will begin with a consultation with one of our dermatologists or skincare experts. During this consultation, they will discuss your skin concerns and goals to tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
  2. Skin Preparation: Before the treatment begins, the treatment area is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or impurities. This ensures that the LED light can penetrate the skin more effectively and deliver its benefits.
  3. Selection of Light Color: LED light therapy uses different wavelengths and colors of light to address various skin concerns. Depending on the your specific needs, the specialist will choose the appropriate color or combination of colors.
  4. Protective Eyewear: You will be provided with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the intense LED light. This is a necessary safety measure to prevent any potential eye damage during the session.
  5. LED Light Application: The selected LED light source is positioned at a comfortable distance from the your skin. The treatment typically lasts around 20-30 minutes, during which you can relax while the LED light works its magic. The light energy is absorbed by the skin cells, which can stimulate cellular processes and improve overall skin health.
  6. Relaxation: Many people find the LED light therapy session to be a relaxing and comfortable experience. The warm, gentle light can be soothing, and you can take this time to unwind and de-stress.
  7. Post-Treatment Care: After the treatment session at Novomed, there is generally no downtime. You can immediately resume your normal activities, as there are no side effects like redness or irritation. However, it is essential to follow any post-treatment instructions provided by the specialist. This may include using specific skincare products or sunscreen to protect your skin after the session.
  8. Follow-Up Sessions: While some individuals may notice improvements after a single session, a series of LED light therapy treatments is often recommended to achieve more substantial and long-lasting results. The exact number of sessions needed will depend on your skin concerns and goals.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How does light therapy treat sleeping disorders?

Light therapy can help people who have trouble sleeping by changing the body’s internal clock and regulating its circadian rhythms. Bright light in the morning or evening can help the body’s natural sleep-wake cycle work better, making you less sleepy during the day and helping you sleep better at night. This allows people with sleeping problems, like insomnia or problems with their circadian rhythm, to get into better, more regular sleep routines.

Does LED light therapy work?

Based on research, LED light treatment may help lessen and improve some skin problems and conditions. But it would help if you kept getting consistent treatments for results to start showing. The LED light treatment machines used in the office are more substantial than the ones you can use at home, which makes them more efficient.

What conditions does light therapy help with?

Light treatment has been shown to improve mental and emotional states, balance circadian rhythms, and promote healthier skin. It can treat mood issues, sleep problems, and skin conditions. Some of the conditions that light therapies have proven to help with include:

  • Aging
  • Eczema.
  • Acne
  • Hair loss.
  • Insomnia
  • Psoriasis.
  • Rough, scaly, precancerous spots on the skin (actinic keratosis).
  • Rosacea.
  • Sun damage.
  • Wrinkles.
  • Early stage of Basel Cell Carcinoma (BCC)
