How LED Light Therapy Provides Wrinkle Reduction
We’re all growing older, which means we’re all going to have to deal with unwanted wrinkles sooner or later.
If you’re the type to push back, rather than just let time have its way, many products make big promises about what they can do to help.
At-home LED light therapy devices are increasing in popularity – and for good reason. These devices are a non-invasive, powerful solution to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Continue reading to learn how LED light works, what LED light is best for wrinkles and how you can benefit from getting your very own LED device.
What Is LED Light Therapy?
Among the most accessible and natural solutions for wrinkle reduction available is light therapy, which involves using light to penetrate the skin’s layers and improve your overall appearance. LED light therapy can improve a range of skin issues but is often used for its anti-aging benefits, especially for wrinkles.
LED lights have been around since the 1960s, but dermatologists have only recently started using them for skincare.
While LED light therapy treatment may seem too good to be true, scientific studies prove that LED lights have anti-aging effects. In one study, 97.4 percent of participants saw a noticeable improvement in their skin tone, wrinkles, and fine lines after using an LED device. LED light stimulates collagen, a necessary protein naturally found in the body that contributes to skin health. Our bodies produce less collagen as we get older, so LED light encourages the body to produce more of the protein.
If you are looking to implement LED light therapy as part of your skincare routine, it’s essential to know the ins and outs of LED light therapy for wrinkles.
Does Red Light Therapy Reduce Wrinkles?
Wrinkles arise because of several factors, including UV exposure, dietary habits, smoking, emotional stress, and, of course, aging!
When we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin, two proteins that help keep the skin taut and youthful. Once we lose some of these proteins, the skin begins to wrinkle. While eliminating stressors and leading a healthy life can prevent additional wrinkles, these changes won’t eliminate existing wrinkles. The good news is that LED light therapy can be the solution you’re looking for to restore your youthful appearance by building up collagen and elastin over time.
Red and infrared light therapy can significantly improve your skin’s health by improving its complexion, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. But like anything else, you have to educate yourself and make the right choice about which brands and products you try and trust. reVive Light Therapy® devices are FDA-cleared and have been clinically proven to work.
In addition to wrinkle reduction, LED light therapy can:
- Minimize skin discoloration and age spots
- Enhance the complexion
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Create more youthful-looking skin due to increased collagen and elastin
It may seem like magic, but the research proves that using LED light from reVive Light Therapy® devices consistently reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Check out some of these before and after photos so you can see for yourself how beneficial red light therapy is against wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet as well as expected treatment results.
Taking a photo before you start light therapy is the best way to see your results, as they can appear subtle at first. When you start using your light therapy device more consistently, you’ll be able to look back on your original photo as a reference.
Regular use is key for results, according to long-time customer Beverly, “I bought the original light therapy panel 5 years ago and use it religiously. I have received many compliments about my skin. I love it and am pleased to get the new improved version.”
When you start seeing results, it’s important to consistently use your light therapy device for upkeep and maintenance, just like any part of your skincare routine.
“Using the system has changed my life,” another customer, JP, said. “It has plumped up my face and evened out the color. I’ve noticed the fine lines and wrinkles are removed and it has helped lift my face. I still use it once a day.”
Which LED Light Is Best for Wrinkles?
LEDs come in various colors, and different light colors have unique effects on the skin, several of which can help reduce wrinkles.
- Amber light: Amber LED light penetrates the skin at shallow levels to promote surface healing and reduce swelling, inflammation and redness.
- Red light: Red Light has the ability to reach deep layers of the skin, where it rejuvenates and stimulates cellular repair and increases circulation to promote a more vibrant and youthful complexion. Red and IR light work synergistically to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation and recovery.
- Infrared light: An infrared LED light penetrates deepest into the skin, supporting cellular regeneration and reducing inflammation, which can help eliminate wrinkles and repair or replace damaged tissues.
These different lights can help produce anti-aging effects. Red light and infrared light are more commonly associated with powerful anti-aging effects, but adding amber light can lead to healthier and more radiant skin.
How Does Red Light Stimulate Collagen?
Studies show that red LED light affects fibroblasts — connective cells throughout the body that assist in collagen production. Once the red light stimulates the fibroblast underneath the skin, they signal the body to produce more collagen, which is responsible for helping the skin recover after an injury.
The more collagen your body produces, the better your skin will look. Collagen can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet and other signs of aging. Red LED lights are also a non-invasive way to encourage the body to produce collagen compared to other anti-aging methods.
Does Anti-Aging Light Therapy Really Work?
While there may be some doubt in those who have never tried LED light therapy, the science speaks for itself. Multiple studies point to the anti-aging benefits of light therapy. The boost in collagen helps the skin heal and creates a youthful and radiant appearance. However, consistency is key when it comes to LED light therapy.
You should use your LED light therapy device regularly for better results. LED devices are safe to use, so it’s impossible to “overdo” light therapy. The FDA clearance for LED devices covers single daily treatments, but we recommend using LED devices up to three times per day for each area. Treatments are safe as long as you follow recommended treatment time and regimen.
Get the most out of your device by adding it to your skincare routine and using it after washing your face. Makeup, sunscreen, and other topicals can contain light-blocking ingredients that render LED light therapy ineffective.
To speed up the process, you can also combine light therapy with skincare products such as serums and extracts.
Finally, by following other anti-aging tips — such as avoiding common habits that age your skin — you can create a holistic approach to skincare that incorporates LED light therapy and other best practices.
