What are the common types of LED lights?
Generally speaking, with light therapy devices, the greater the variety of wavelengths that are available from a single device, the greater number of issues that can be treated with that particular device.
Blue Light Therapy – (415 nm ±10nm) Blue light in this wavelength range has proven to have highly powerful bacteria fighting properties. Moreover, this light can kill P. acnes, one of the primary acne causing bacteria, meaning that it can be a very effective treatment for mild to moderate acne conditions. Blue light photofacials can also help to stabilize oil glands, ease inflammation, and purify the skin.
Red Light Therapy –(620nm ±10nm) Red light has the unique ability to penetrate deeply into the skin, where it can stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate the face, encourage cellular repair, and boost the circulation to the face so that the complexion appears more youthful and vibrant. Red light photo facials are used for reducing scarring, wrinkles, deep lines, and evening out the skin tone.
Yellow Light Therapy – (590nm ±10nm) Yellow light is used for its reduction in inflammation, swelling, and redness on the face including broken capillaries and spider veins. It is often chosen for the treatment of sunburns and other types of burns, as well as conditions such as rosacea. Yellow light therapy can help to bring vitality back to complexions that have become dull looking. It can bring back a more youthful “glow”.
Green Light Therapy – (535nm ±10nm) Green light is absorbed by the melanin producing cells of the skin, slowing melanin production, and gradually breaking up excess melanin collections which are then reabsorbed by the body. Green light is known to have a highly calming effect on the skin. It can also brighten the complexion by helping to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation, freckles, sun spots and age spots. At the same time, green light photo facials can soothe the skin’s surface with its anti-inflammatory properties.
