The origins of LED light therapy begin in outer space. While using LED (Light Emitting Diodes) to grow plants, Astronauts noticed their cuts were healing faster. Just like plants, our skin has the ability to absorb light and convert it to energy, assisting in cell repair and regeneration. The accidental discovery drove research into the medical application of light on wound healing and tissue growth. 2,500 scientific published papers later — and here we are.
LED light therapy complements our skin’s biological ability to rejuvenate, boost collagen synthesis and stimulate wound healing. The non-invasive treatment requires no UV and is suitable for all skin conditions, types and tones. It helps to repair damage caused by sun exposure, kill bacteria on the skin that may cause acne and calms redness or inflammation, including rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
The benefits are more than skin-deep, LED light therapy can also help to stimulate hair growth, ease muscle and joint pain, stimulate lymphatic flow and reduce swollen, broken capillaries and spider veins. It is also proven to affect brain chemicals linked to mood, sleep, and ease the symptoms of SAD (seasonable affective disorder).
The sensation of LED light therapy is similar to lying in the sun, without the harmful effects. Bask in Near-Infrared Lightwhich accelerates wound healing, regenerates cells, delivers nutrients and oxygen to the area treated, and soothes inflamed skin. Blue Lighttargets the surface of the skin, killing bacteria and reducing oil production to help prevent blemishes and breakouts.
