LED light therapy is one of the staples of current beauty tech devices. Especially in the past few years, it has been the talk of the town. You’ve probably seen it somewhere too, or perhaps owned a device with this technology. LED light therapy has become popular obviously because it’s been loved by many. The vast majority of celebrity salons also use this treatment as a must-have.
So, let’s look further at this on-trend therapy, and why you need to care if your goal is to age gracefully.
What is LED light therapy, and how does it works?
LED is short for Light-Emitting Diode. This treatment uses varying wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin, promote healing and target a range of skin concerns.
Not many know, our skin has the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. Within this process, LED light therapy delivers beneficial energy to our skin. This works just like how photosynthesis works in plants. The good news is that the LED does not contain ultraviolet (UV) which can damage the skin.
What are the benefits we get from this LED light therapy?
From NASA to Navy SEALs have benefitted from LED light therapy, but we listed some of our favourites:

How to use or get a LED light therapy treatment?
Bless the technology and founders who made this treatment easily accessible at home. We can now opt for suitable LED Light therapy devices for our own needs. In the past, we remember this treatment was exclusively available in big clinics or salons.
There are many ways to use LED light therapy devices, depending on what it is specially made for. For most devices, we just need to put it close to the targeted skin area for some minutes, according to individual devices’ guidance.
When can we expect results from LED light therapy treatment?
LED light therapy is meant to be used consistently to get the best result. The result may differ depending on the individual unique skin conditions and the wavelength of light in every device.
For example, LED light therapy masks must be used regularly three times a week for about 10 minutes each. The result, on average, is seen after 6-12 weeks of regular usage.
Who will need LED light therapy treatment?
As the nature of the treatment is non-invasive and not using any active ingredients, it is suitable for almost anyone! Especially someone who wants to tackle her/his many skin concerns and preserve a youthful appearance.
