WHAT IS LIGHT THERAPY (Phototherapy):
Light Therapy has been shown in over 50 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible and 'invisible' infrared light effect at least 24 positive changes at the cellular level. Light Therapy causes biological effects because different wavelengths are absorbed by specific proteins. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) disperse the light (red, blue, or infrared) over a large surface area. Pulsed light is the most profound, non-invasive way to 'enlighten' your cells.
LED Photomodulation (the process of manipulating cell activity using light without causing thermal damage.) is the most recent technology in Phototherapy. Light Therapy (Phototherapy) is just the exposure of skin to light for therapeutic purposes. This is a relatively new process that stimulates cell-signaling for skin rejuvenation. This process is on it's way to becoming the go to anti-aging medicine. Phototherapy uses visible and invisible light that does NOT contain any Ultra-Violet light. That makes this a non-invasive/thermal skin rejuvenation treatment. The sole purpose of using LED light is to stimulate new collagen and dermal extra-cellular matrix substance (visibly improves the appearance of wrinkles without damaging the epidermis.) instead of destroying a specific target.
Up until now, the way to accomplish younger looking skin was to heat up the dermis to stimulate fibroblast proliferation (thermal method) using CO2 as a laser/intense pulsed light. Or the heating of the blood vessels (photo coagulation/photothermolysis) with a ND-Y laser to treat problems like leg veins. Stimulating new collagen has also been done with chemicals (TCA/Phenol.) Though those methods may work, there are plenty of discomforting side affects that go along with those treatments that some clients may not be able to accept. Sometimes these treatments can take up to several days/weeks/months to heal completely, some of them you cannot apply make-up for extended periods of time, they can be painful, you have restrictions on things you cannot do, etc. This is where LED Light Therapy trumps all other options in the market.
LED Light Therapy uses low intensity light emitting diodes which creates a process and outcome that is very similar to plant photosynthesis. The light emitted by the LED's is absorbed by the epidermal cells/passed through the skin. Different areas of the skin and the cells are affected by numerous wavelengths which stimulates beneficial effects; different color lights heal different problems. Red light therapy has been used for therapeutic purposes in Eastern Europe for 50 years, UV light has been used in the US fir many years to treat psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. The US has also used light therapy to treat jaundice in newborns.
The form of energy that cells use is produced in the process of Light Therapy to speed up metabolism that synthesizes RNA, DNA, proteins, enzymes and other biological materials needed in repairing/regenerating cell and tissue components. The studies of LED Light Therapy have actually shown improvements on the skins texture as well as increasing collagen production. Basically this process slows down collagen breakdown as well as building up new collagen, so a wide range of Fitzpatrick skin types are able to endure this treatment safely because of the low intensity and the specific wavelength control from the light. So there is NO thermal damage done to the epidermis. After a series of treatments, the fibroblasts can actually continue to produce new collagen for up to 6 months (after the treatment series is over) and lymph activity is increased which reduces fluid build up. This speeds up the entire healing process because the lymph system eliminates bacteria.
Even though Light Therapy has low power output, it has a high duty cycle which provide much gentler healing wavelengths as opposed to lasers. So this means there is no risk for eye damage, though you will probably wear eye protection anyway.
Phototherapy is usually added to any facial after the exfoliation process making the facial about 15 minutes longer than it would normally be. Treatments should be done every 12-14 days for 8-12 weeks, though you will notice drastic results after your third session.
