LED Photomodulation Therapy for Acne
WHAT CAUSES ACNE?
Did you know that acne is actually one of the most common skin problems today? Clinical studies have shown that roughly 75% of 11- to 30-year-olds have suffered from acne at least once in their lives. Younger males tend to be more prone to developing acne because of higher levels of testosterone present in the body. It is a common occurrence during puberty, but it can also affect adults.
Pores in the skin are connected via follicles; these act as passages for oil glands below the skin, which also produce sebum. This is a natural liquid that helps to get rid of dead skin cells from the body. However, a build-up of sebum can lead to a blockage of the follicles, leading to the formation of pimples which can result in acne scarring.
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED light therapy is an anti-aging process that is fast gaining popularity around the world due to the natural looking results it produces. It helps to boost the cellular functions in the body, speeding up skin rejuvenation and healing with just the right wavelengths. Powerful enough to reach the deep skin layers, it can also treat several skin conditions at the same time.
In addition to doctors, LED light therapy technology has been adopted by NASA and the NAVY seals to help heal wounds and regenerate muscle! As a non-invasive method, it does not cause any harm to the skin, and is proven to be safe and reliable. It boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, which leads to quicker regeneration of replacement skin tissue which eventually results in less acne and scarring. In addition, you will not suffer from any physical trauma or thermal damage from the treatment, which is suitable for both male and females of any age.
HOW IT WORKS
Your body needs sunlight to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which acts as fuel for the metabolism that synthesises enzymes, essential proteins and more. This is where LED Light Therapy comes in. Skin tissue also makes use of ATP to quicken the healing and rejuvenation process in the outlined treatment area.
Results will depend on your current lifestyle, physical condition, diet and age. You may need to undergo up to 8-10 sessions before results are visible, but some individuals have been able to notice improvements almost immediately. After each session, your skin should gradually improve, allowing you to keep track and compare the difference before and after the procedure.
