With age, several issues are sprung up that affect the skin. Your skin begins to get loose as its natural defenses weaken. Protein enzymes keep your skin plump which is produced naturally by our body during youth years. However, as you age, this essential substance tends to lose and skin gets loose causing wrinkles and fine lines.
LED Light therapy is one of the interesting treatments known to treat these issues. It uses a special light laser that penetrates deep into the skin to trigger the production of proteins and help to re-energize the skin. Our expert estheticians at RN Laser & Med Spa offer this treatment for various skincare issues.

What Is LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy is the best thing that has ever happened to the beauty and cosmetic community. With the use of different LED (light-emitting diode) wavelengths, this procedure helps in the treatment of several skin issues and provides such skincare advantages that many advanced treatments fail to offer.
This treatment is safe to use on all types of skin textures and colors. It doesn’t cause any irritation or burning. It is mainly famous for the regeneration of proteins which smoothes out the skin and reduces the damage caused by age spots, acne, fine lines, facial folds, and wrinkles.
There are different wavelengths or frequencies of LED light used in the treatment including blue and red light wavelengths which are readily absorbed by the skin. They do not contain harmful UV rays.
Difference between Red Light Therapy and Blue Light Therapy
Red light or infrared is used to treat the outermost layer of the skin known as the epidermis. When the light reaches the skin surface it gets absorbed by the epidermis resulting in the stimulation of proteins. More proteins means fuller and smoother skin. Red LED light is also known to reduce swelling or inflammation, improves circulation leading to glowing skin.
On the other hand, blue LED light therapy targets oil glands known as sebaceous glands. They are located under hair follicles. Oil glands are essential for the lubrication of skin and hair to prevent them from frying out. However, when these glands become overactive, it leads to the overproduction of oil and acne. Blue LED light targets sebaceous glands and makes them less active, resulting in reducing the breakouts. Blue LED light also helps in getting rid of bacteria that cause acne in the skin. Thus, it helps in the treatment of severe pimples such as nodules and cysts.
What are the Benefits of LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy addresses several musculoskeletal and skin conditions, including:
- Acne- It kills acne-causing bacteria, clears existing breakouts, and restores the healthy appearance of skin.
- Aging Spots- Light therapy reduces the look of wrinkles and fine lines as it helps in the production of proteins. It improves the firmness of the skin.
- Pains and Aches- Helps in reducing inflammation and increasing circulation. Besides skincare, LED light therapy reduces stiffness, muscle spasms, and joint pains.
