LED Light Therapy or Phototherapy is the interaction of light, delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), to activate cell receptors causing them to produce collagen or multiply to treat multiple skin conditions.
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were found by NASA to stimulate plant growth in space.
LED light in different wavelength colors is used to treat many skin-related issues, such as acne, wound healing, and collagen stimulation.
The Food and Drug Administration has approved LED light therapy in cosmetic applications because it carries no risk of overexposure or eye injury.
LED light systems are used in doctors' offices, spas, and salons. You can buy LED light systems for home use.
LEDs offer a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. The light from the LEDs 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.
Different color LED light penetrates the skin at different depths, thereby providing different results based on the color light being emitted.
LED light has been found to produce results with regular use over a period of time, usually 8-12 weeks. This is a non-invasive treatment with virtually no downtime, making it an easier sell to your clients who are looking for results.

Anti-wrinkle treatments LED Light Therapy is great for stimulating collagen production, a protein accountable for the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Collagen also repairs damaged skin cells, a lot of patients enjoy younger-looking, healthier skin after series of treatment.
Yellow Light Therapy – Toning
Yellow light stimulates the nervous and lymphatic systems, toning and strengthening the muscles under the epidermis, bringing tightness back to skin, aiding the anti-aging process
Blue light LEDs are used in the treatment of acne. Blue LED light penetrates 5 mm and can be used to kill acne-causing bacteria, clear comedones, calm inflammation and redness, control sebum production, promote protein synthesis, stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation in the dermal and epidermal.
Also used in hair-loss treatments.
Green LED light penetrates 2-5 mm and can be used to reduce hyperpigmentation, calm the skin after a chemical peel or microdermabrasion treatment and help repair skin damage. This is a perfect finish to some of the more abrasive facial treatments you may offer.

Blue Light is an FDA cleared non-painful treatment for mild and moderately severe acne.
LED red and infrared light is used for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. The penetrating light waves of the red and infrared light stimulate your body's natural production of collagen and elastin. The stimulation of collagen plumps up the skin. The LED red light has an overall lifting effect and improves tone and texture.
Treat your rosacea symptoms with LED light therapy. Red light LED systems have an anti-inflammatory action. Rosacea is a chronic vascular skin condition. Red light therapy's anti-inflammatory properties may halt rosacea progression and build collagen, thickening the skin and adding protection to surface blood vessels.
Blue and red light combination are an effective, safe and non-painful treatment for mild to moderately severe acne, the wavelengths deeply penetrating and killing the bacteria that causes breakouts while reducing inflammation, pimples, and redness associated with acne.
Within weeks are remarkably reduced injuries and overall improvement in skin appearance.
