LED Photomodulation Therapy for Age Spots
WHAT CAUSES PIGMENTATION / AGE SPOTS?
When your skin becomes too exposed to the sun, it will naturally begin to produce melanin in order to combat the harmful UV rays of the sun. However, age spots may form if the melanin produced is focused in a small area, resulting in a series of spots that may be black, brown or grey in colour. Hyperpigmentation may also occur if the melanin production is heavily concentrated in a large skin patch, which is often darker in colour.
Both these conditions can also be caused by picking at your skin, acne, hormonal changes, inflammation, or even selected medications like antibiotics.
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
This is a procedure that is quickly becoming popular, and is an anti-aging technique that can restore the youthfulness of your skin as well as producing natural looking results. Light wavelengths will penetrate your skin at the correct depth, triggering the cellular functions in your body. As a result, this speeds up the healing and rejuvenation of your skin; the procedure can also treat several skin conditions at the same time.
NASA and the Navy Seals are also known users of LED light therapy, as it quickly heals wounds and regenerates muscle. It does not cause any harm to your skin as it is non-invasive, and has also been proven to be safe. Stimulating the regrowth of skin cells, the collagen and elastin production in your body also increases, which can lead to a reduction in hyperpigmentation and age spots. There is also no need to worry about any thermal damage or physical trauma, with the therapy suitable for those of all ages.
HOW IT WORKS
Your body requires sunlight to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – this is the fuel for metabolic processes that synthesise enzymes, essential proteins and more. The skin tissue also makes use of ATP to boost both healing and rejuvenation in the outlined treatment area.
Any results you obtain depend on your age, diet, physical condition and lifestyle. You may need to undergo 8-10 treatments before changes are visible, but some have reported improvements to the skin almost immediately. You should then notice gradual improvements after each subsequent session.
