On the question of whether LED light bed treatment is good for your skin or not? You only need to look at why it came to the attention of medical practitioners in the first place.
LED is an acronym for ‘Light Emitting Diode.’ LED light for skin was originally used as a postoperative treatment to accelerate the healing of wounds and scars. Its success and its healing credentials were the catalyst for further research into the use of LED as an anti-ageing treatment and a treatment for a multitude of skin and other conditions. Today it is widely recognised as a revolutionary treatment that can help with anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.
LED is a computer chip that’s placed inside a resin case and it emits light energy. Blue light can work by penetrating layers of skin and killing the bacteria that causes acne. Red light can work in the same way to stimulate collagen production which is how it can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve uneven skin tones and leave your skin looking brighter. Collagen is also responsible for repairing and replacing damaged tissue.
As a healing agent, LED can work by increasing the formation of new capillaries to replace damaged ones. These new capillaries can speed up the healing process by carrying more oxygen and nutrients to cells and vessels and in the process they can rid the tissues of waste matter.
LED works at a cellular level. It can rejuvenate the cells in the dermis layer of skin to help produce collagen, which is that full healthy and vibrant look that healthy skin projects, and elastin, which gives the skin more elasticity.
Stimulates nitric oxide
LED can also increase nitric oxide, the compound that can heal the cells and increase the blood flow to: stimulate healing; strengthen your immune system to defend against disease; regulate your blood pressure and reduce inflammation. Nitric oxide can also be crucial for the health of arteries.
The production and stimulation of nitric oxide is a major goal of athletes who are trying to increase the flow of oxygen which can improve their performances. LED light bed therapy can help them to increase nitric oxide without reverting to pills or supplements. LED can be a far more sustainable and efficient way to stimulate the production of nitric oxide.
Other, less known benefits
Other LED light bed therapy benefits can include aiding in the treatment of: Arthritis; bursitis; carpal tunnel syndrome; UV damage; diabetic ulcers; bedsores; fibromyalgia; strains and sprains; tendonitis and other rheumatic diseases and chronic pain.
For best results consistent use of 1-2 times a week can be best as each treatment builds upon the last. Treatments are painless and take 40 minutes.
