LED (Light-Emitting Diode) Therapy is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light to treat various skin issues.
NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments, and they later discovered that it was also useful for treating skin wounds.
The U.S. Navy SEALs began using it in the 1990s to heal wounds quickly and stimulate muscle tissue regeneration.
Today, it is widely used in aesthetic clinics to treat many other kinds of skin issues. Typically, either red or blue light frequencies are used — depending on the skin concern.
Red light is used for anti-aging, while blue is used for acne treatment.
LED light therapy typically needs 8-10 short sessions spread out over time to avoid traumatizing the skin and to get substantial and enduring results.
