We all know that certain light can be harmful to our skin and could vary from a few extra fine lines to wrinkles that make us look far older than we actually are, but did you know that a different kind of light can actually help regenerate the skin and reverse the signs of UV and blue screen light damage?
LED therapies are the latest technological breakthrough to hit the aesthetics market and are steadily gaining in popularity due to the amazing results LED light therapy provides in tackling the ill effects of both UV and blue screen light.
But firstly, let’s look at the detrimental effects both types of light can have on our skin and just how often we’re faced with them.
UV light is well known as one of the biggest causes of premature ageing. For those who like the sun, the appearance of uneven skin tone, wrinkles, blotches and dry skin is most unwelcome and very difficult to avoid if the skin has been regularly damaged by either the sun or sunbeds.
Damage from UV light can also occur when you least expect it, so even an hour on an overcast day could be contributing to skin issues without us even realising it.
Blue Screen Light
Blue screen light can cause inflammation and can contribute to earlier signs of ageing targeting the delicate skin around the eyes. It also accelerates the oxidation process, causing hyperpigmentation and unwanted dark circles to appear making us look tired and worn down.
This is especially worrying if like many people you spend several hours in front of a computer screen or television set as the skin around the eyes is especially sensitive to wrinkles, fine lines, dullness and uneven skin tone.
Unfortunately, many of us have little choice but to be subjected to blue screen light on a daily basis, but there is a way that LED light therapies can help restore a healthy glow.
LED light therapy has been heralded as a skin saviour by celebrities across the globe who have been using various LED devices to help combat wrinkles, increase the production of collagen and naturally increase hydration resulting in improved skin tone and texture.
Our innovative selfie facial, performed using the Lumineo device, is a restorative treatment for skin that has suffered through too much screen time. LED wavelengths penetrate the skin, evening out the skin tone, reducing breakouts and improving the complexion for an Insta-worthy glow. What’s more, with its seven treatment modes for the face and body, the Lumineo can also be used to administer red light therapy to reduce and prevent damage caused by HEV light.
Non-invasive and totally safe, our award-winning Illumination LED Face Mask also helps to restore stressed out skin to its former glory, improving skin tone and texture for total rejuvenation.
How does it work?
LED light therapy works by safely penetrating layers of the skin to inhibit bacteria formation, stimulate collagen and reduce inflammation making it ideal for a wide range of skin problems from acne to ageing.
The LED light treats skin issues from the inside out without the need for any invasive surgery or painful treatments.
Is it right for me?
One of the best features of LED light therapies is that they suit all skin types, colours and textures and have been rigorously tried and tested before reaching the beauty market. Treatments can be totally tailored to the needs of the client, making it an effective treatment for all kinds of skin issues.
