How to do Facial at Home with LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy was invented in the 1980s to quicken, cure the skin and muscular systems of astronauts, it is now being used to give a glowing skin to our beauty divas. Look at the internet's most well-known diva figures like Kate Moss, the Karadashians, and many more to attest to its genius. People adore this treatment because it gives a beautiful and filterless glow.

In fact, it is now also evolving into an at-home facial in the form of self-applied face masks which can be used to treat different skin related issues like acne, hyper-pigmentation and more.

Let’s talk about how different lights affect the skin.

Blue light: The blue light is in the 400 - 520 nm spectrum and blue light therapy is utilized for its antibacterial characteristics to help treat acne, decrease oil production and reduce inflammation in the oil glands. Long-term use of blue light can aid in controlling oil secretion. It enters the pore to trigger chemicals within the bacteria that kill the cell and prevent it from forming acne.

Often red light is used with blue light as an acne scar treatment and to treat skin issues like acne and inflammation.

Red Light: Red light has a wavelength between 640 and 700 nm. To heal inflammation and regenerate skin, it has a longer wavelength and penetrates deeper into the skin. When red light strikes the skin, it stimulates blood flow, cell turnover, and enhances collagen production. It reduces the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, and fine wrinkles by having a calming impact on the skin's outer layers. It has multiple benefits which makes it most-popular amongst dermatologists.

Yellow Light: With a shallow penetration depth and a wavelength range of 570–620 nm, yellow (or amber) LED light therapy is useful for treating a range of redness-related skin conditions. Anyone know how? Well, this light encourages collagen production. Moreover, it increases lymphatic drainage, which flushes out waste and toxins from the dermis and delays the onset of aging. It also reduces the sebum production which decreases the chances of acne.

Yellow light therapy is used with the red light therapy and blue light therapy as this trio is effective against acne, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Exposure to these can help you achieve the glowing skin at home.

Treats acne

The use of an LED light can help those with acne that won't go away and also manages acne-prone skin well. As previously indicated, it has the capacity to penetrate deeply into skin pores and destroy the bacterial wall that causes acne, hence preventing acne and clogged pores.

The LED mask can be used as effective at-home anti-acne treatment. You can apply your anti-acne cream, layer it with hydrating moisturizer and use the LED mask over it to increase the power of your acne treatment. It also works effectively on the appearance of acne scars that are caused by the active acne. The red light therapy enhances the  cell turnover which increases the collagen production.


Helps to reduce the hyperpigmentation:

Regular users of LED light therapy at home with a mask helps to improve skin's general health.  Your skin begins to look even-toned and healthy since these lights are specifically helpful in acne treatment and other skin issues like sunspots and hyperpigmentation around the mouth and other areas of the face.

Hyperpigmentation is a common skin issue amongst Indians. It is caused due to the high production of melanin by melanocytes. It appears as freckles, age spots, or larger areas of darkened skin. The red light helps to produce new cells which can reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation around different areas around the face. The blue light directly works on the melanocytes and decreases the production of melanin.


Helps to reduce the sun damage:   

A lot of skin problems are caused by UV radiation. Regular exposure to UV radiation can cause premature aging, hyper-pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. LED light therapy fixes these issues. The majority of skin problems can be targeted by using the red light and blue light together.

The red light helps to develop a better resistance against the sun rays and improves the production of elastin which is a protein responsible for the elasticity of the skin and cell rejuvenation. The blue light and yellow light therapy helps in calming the sun burns, inflammation and redness caused by harmful UV rays.
