The Pleasures of LED Light Therapy

By January 31, 2012

Follow me on:

LED light therapy is one of my favorite forms of skin rejuvenation because it's a painless, relatively inexpensive skin-care treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production. 

First developed by NASA, LED works by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin. Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen. Blue light LED treats acne by killing the bacteria that causes inflammation.

Professional LED treatments are given at select day spas, usually those with a serious focus on skin care. It can be a stand-alone treatment or part of a facial and usually cost somewhere between $75 to $125 a treatment. The results won't be as dramatic as plastic surgery, but it's a gentler, less expensive way to go.
