Quick Guide To LED Light Therapy: Everything You Need To Know

You’ve probably seen light masks on Instagram, or you’ve heard about it from the skincare routine of celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian, Emma Stone, and Olivia Munn. Skincare experts on LED light therapy all swear by its extensive benefits for the skin. But if you’re still clueless or want to know more about this treatment, we’ll answer all your questions about LED light therapy in this quick definitive guide.

What is LED light therapy?

Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses light energy to help improve skin conditions and concerns. Through LED therapy, your skin is exposed to different colour bands of light, typically red or blue. It doesn’t use ultraviolet light, and instead uses skin-safe and low-level light that is safe for all skin types. It is recommended to treat acne, psoriasis, fine lines, sun damage, and other skin issues, and to restore skin radiance.

What does LED light therapy do?

When you’re exposed to LED light, the light penetrates deep into your skin in different depths and activates cell repair and growth. This natural cell process rejuvenates the skin, fights acne-causing bacteria, plumps your skin, reduces fine lines, makes it healthier from within, and gives you a glow boost.

How does light therapy work?

A full session of LED light therapy takes 20 minutes. For maintenance, you need to go back for your session once a week for 10 weeks, or as recommended depending on your skin goals.

Before the procedure, your skin will be prepped and cleansed. During the treatment, you will lie under the light screen, with goggles to protect your eyes.

Your skin will simply be exposed to the light. Once absorbed, this light energy will stimulate collagen and elastin production, tissue repair, and circulation. This smoothens out your skin and reduces damage from acne, sun exposure, wrinkles, and other skin concerns.

After the treatment, an SPF will be applied.

What are the different types of light used in light therapy?

Light therapy is great for all skin types. But different colours of light have different targeted effects, hence, there are different colours for each skin concern.

  1. Red light – targets the outer layer of the skin; stimulates collagen, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and inflammation, improves circulation, and is good for rosacea.
  2. Near infra-red light – penetrates deeper than red light; great for anti-aging, wound healing, and cystic acne.
  3. Blue light – targets the oil glands; helps treat acne, eczema, and psoriasis, fights bacteria, controls oil production, decreases scarring, and reduces inflammation in the oil glands.
  4. Green light – reduces hyperpigmentation and dark blemishes, balances complexion, and minimises redness.
  5. Yellow light – boosts collagen production, and has an anti-aging effect.
