LED Light And Green Tea Cream Smooth Facial Wrinkles
Scientists are reporting a major improvement in their potential new treatment for facial wrinkles that could emerge as an alternative to Botox and cosmetic surgery. The noninvasive technique combines high-intensity light from light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and a lotion made of green tea extract. It works 10 times faster than a similar anti-wrinkle treatment that uses LEDs alone, the researchers say.
A Harvard paper summed it up in 2006:
"The use of low levels of visible or near infrared light for reducing pain, inflammation and edema, promoting healin of wounds, deeper tissues and nerves, and preventing tissue damage has been known for almost forty years since the invention of lasers.
LED Red Light Therapy is one of the most celebrated and documented treatment for aging and damaged skin. It uses your body's natural process to heal. LED Red Light Therapy penetrates beneath the surface of the skin. Studies have shown skin exposed to LED Red Light Therapy will heal 150%-200% faster, and LED Red Light Therapy is established in the medical field but now is getting recognized as an anti-aging regime.
LED Light therapy has been used by NASA and the NAVY SEALS in the treatment of wounds and muscle regeneration with great success and now is being integrated into the field of aesthetics with great success. The basic theory is that cells use light to create ATP, the fuel that powers life at a cellular level. Once produced, the body uses ATP to carry out repair and rejuvenation. This is much like a plant using sunlight to convert it into food energy or chlorophyll. Light therapy uses very specific spectrums of light waves, red and infrared, WITHOUT UV rays.
This is what helps the body to heal itself at a cellular level. Exposure to LED light can enhance cellular metabolism which results in faster repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells. LED light exposure can also stimulate the production of collagen resulting in more healthy and smooth skin. LED therapy is quick, painless and easy to apply, is not abrasive and noninvasive and is ideal for all types of skin and for all ages.
LED light therapy is the latest technology in anti-aging skin care!
The breakthrough technology benefits of LED are well-documented, this treatment does not use heat or any kind of invasive process, but triggers the body to convert light energy into cell energy without thermal heat. LED light therapy is non-invasive, causes no inflammation, and requires no special post-treatment procedures. It is proving to be an effective treatment for aging skin as well as particular conditions such as Couperose, Rosacea and other skin conditions.
Benefits of Red LED Light Therapy include:
LED treatments help to strengthen the walls of the capillaries and improve the health and appearance of the skin. Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, increase in collagen, reduction of overall redness, flushing and dilated capillaries such as Couperose and Rosacea skin conditions.
Results are often immediate
Red light anti-aging skin care therapy is used to treat all signs of aging, such as fine, medium and deep lines, as well as loss of elasticity. NASA’s research concluded that frequencies of light could actually cause new cell growth, when applied for the treatment of aging “such as sun damage, broken capillaries, wrinkles, and fine lines“.
What is a LED light Facial Therapy?
LED light Facial Therapy uses light energy to actually take care of any issues that you see on your face. A LED light uses the power of light to take care of wrinkles, blemishes and much more. The light actually takes care of the cells toward the top of the skin that cause the multiple issues to create new collagen.One of the major uses for a LED light Facial Therapy is for those who suffer from couperose, rosacea and acne, as these issues can be reduced. LED Red and or Blue light energy actually forces the skin to create new collagen that triggering repair mechanisms and stimulating fibroblast cells and cell growth. It increases circulation and speeds up the healing process by carrying more oxygen and nutrients to the skin. Red spectrum light is absorbed by all skin layers especially the DERMIS.
The benefits are:
1) Reduces the signs of aging; wavelengths will increase cellular activity at the dermal level and Increases blood flow helping bring nutrients and cellular growth factors to the treated areas.
2) Increases the production of collagen and elastin, thus firming and lifting the skin, LED Light Therapy studies have revealed that exposing the skin to red LED lights plump the skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
3) Lymph vessels open and drain more efficiently to remove toxic waste from the cells and promote a healthier looking skin.
4) LED light therapy can also strengthen the walls of the capillaries, help diminish the redness of couperose, rosacea and calm inflammation and reduce pain.
How does LED Light Skin Rejuvenation work?
LED Light offers a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. The light from the LED interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce new collagen and elastin. Studies confirm that the same LED energy can be used to inhibit collagen formation, which can be helpful in the treatment of scars. By manipulating the wavelengths, cells can be turned on and off. Blue light LEDs are used in the treatment of acne. Red light LEDs are used for Rejuvenation, anti-aging and treating Rosacea.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depending on the problem being treated and the amount of surface area treated. Since the results are progressive, you will notice more correction with each treatment. As full correction approaches, treatment from six to 8 treatment is recommended. Since the skin continues to age, maintenance treatments will be required every 3 weeks.
The Blue/red Light For The Treatment Of Acne
Blue/red LED light skin therapy is designed to treat acne. When Blue/Red LED lights administered to treat oily and acne prone, it actually attacks a substance called PP-9 which thereby produces singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen is toxic for acne producing bacteria. Blue/Red LED light therapy kills acne causing bacteria immediately producing drastic improvement in the client’s acne. There is no down time and the results are incredible.
BLUE LED LIGHT;
improves acne prone skin. It penetrates into the superficial dermis and has a calming and regulating effect on the sebaceous gland Blue light treatment consists of three 30-minute treatments per week for two weeks. Then the treatments are cut back to two per week for 4 more weeks; Maintenance treatments are recommended every 4 to 6 weeks, depending on client’s UV exposure and lifestyle.
Blue LED Light Benefits:
Normalizes Sebum Production
Kills Acne Bacteria
Rapier the Skin tissue
Heals the post-inflammatory change caused by acne
Note: AHA or Enzyme peels and microdermabrasion combined with Blue LED Light Therapy will complement the treatments. Exfoliation and Blue LED treatment are an excellent combination and can accelerate the desired result.
Noticeable results are often seen after the first treatment, the long-term effectiveness of this or any skin care treatment is only as good as the client’s adherence to a consistent home care program and lifestyle that are in keeping with the desired results.
