LED light therapy works in the same way as photosynthesis in plants. The RED light triggers intracellular chemical reactions that can cause cellular turnover, collagen production, and elastin fiber production.
The production of ATP from the mitochondria in the skin triggers cell production. This energy release stimulates the production of healthy cells, which then replace the damaged ones.
This procedure is different from other light treatments like IPL and Laser. Instead of using heat to damage the dermal layers, the cells get an energy boost. LED light therapy is safe and effective without any known contraindications.

To get the most out of your LED treatment, it is important to consult a dermatologist to find the right treatment for you. Although it is rare, there is always a possibility that you may cause more damage than you intended.
It is important to remember that not all treatments are instant. It may take time. This is why many clinics offering the LED light treatment will sell you full courses of 10 to 12 treatments.
To avoid long-term damage, you might need to extend the time between treatments in sensitive cases. LED treatments can lighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. This treatment is still in its early stages, but it will only improve over time.
