Light therapy isn’t new, but it’s a field of science that has grown exponentially in recent years. We now know that light of different wavelengths has the ability to effect us mentally, physically and aesthetically. Light therapy has been used for everything from depression to treating acne. The benefits of light therapy for skincare have been well noted.
Red Light Therapy – There are a large number of studies which show that red light helps with rejuvenating skin and protecting cells against damage.
Yellow Light Therapy – Reduces inflammation (which can lead to wrinkles). Yellow light has also shown to boost circulation and rejuvenate cells to reduce signs of ageing and help you to maintain a younger appearance.
Green Light Therapy – Green light is used in skin care to improve the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots by calming irritated skin; this helps to provide a more even skin tone. Green light targets the bottom layer of the epidermis, inhibiting excess melanin and preventing it from travelling to the surface of the skin, where it clusters into discoloration; This effect can reduce existing discoloration.
Blue Light Therapy – Blue light is often used in the treatment of acne, it has a multi-faceted, effective approach to dealing with the skin condition. Blue light reduces the production of sebum, an oily matter which can clog your skin pores in excess. Blue light kills bacteria on the surface of the skin when shone at high intensity, it also has an anti-inflammatory effect, which calms and soothes the skin.
Light therapy is natural and totally safe. Each wavelength penetrates into different layers of the skin for a complete range of skin care benefits. The device that produces the light treatment is known as a lumineo device and the collective term for using these various coloured lights in skincare is lumineo.
This form of skin care treatment is cost-effective and can be safely enjoyed with other skin regimes such as microdermabrasion.
