What is LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy is a gentle process by which light energy of various frequencies (colors) is delivered to the skin and underlying tissues. The colors – red, blue, infra-red, green, and yellow – penetrate the skin to different depths, causing photo-stimulation, a therapeutic and cell-renewing process that has been clinically proven to improve cell function. http://dermaglow.com/led-therapy/led-faq/#what-is

What conditions does LED light therapy treat?

LED light therapy can alleviate or diminish a wide range of skin conditions, including:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Acne
• Blemishes
• Hypo-pigmentation
• Hyper-pigmentation
• Irritated skin
• Sun-damaged skin
• Stretch marks
• Scars
• Cellulite
• Pain
• SAD (Seasonal affective depression)

Light Therapy for Skin

Specific wavelengths of pulsating light from the visible spectrum have beneficial effects on the skin cells.

Red Light (640nm): Photo-Aging

Increases fibroblast growth factor in macrophage cells. Red light exposure results in 5x the increase in collagen production, stimulating intracellular activity and new skin cell growth. The perfect adjunct to any anti-aging treatment.

Amber Light (590nm): Scar Healing

Increases lymphatic flow evacuating waste and stimulating cellular growth. Amber light is absorbed by body fluids in lymph and blood circulatory systems and boosts cellular activity with 5x the growth rate of new skin and muscle tissue. Excellent post-surgery treatment.

Blue Light (470nm): Acne

Propionibacterium responds to blue light at 470nm and has been shown to effectively reduce non-inflammatory and inflammatory acne lesions and significantly decrease melanin levels.

Light Therapy for Depression

Light therapy has been used successfully for more than a decade to treat seasonal affective disorder (SAD), or depression that typically occurs in the winter months. This new study shows that a light box can also help treat year-round major depression, and it can do so as well as antidepressant drugs.

This is why "alternative" tools like light therapy should be considered by each and every person suffering from symptoms of major depression. With virtually no side effects and a proven track record of effectiveness, by adding light therapy to your treatment you've got everything to gain and nothing to lose.

How Does Light Therapy Work?

Serotonin, the brain hormone associated with mood elevation, rises with exposure to bright light and falls with decreased sun exposure. This has been proven by many scientific studies, including one reported in the well-respected medical journal Lancet in 2002. This study measured blood levels of serotonin, finding that production of serotonin by the brain was directly related to the duration of bright sunlight.

Likewise, in the latest study, people who were exposed to bright blue light for an hour each morning for just three weeks experienced more improvements in their depressive symptoms than the control group, which was exposed to red light. They also had increased levels of melatonin in the evening, which helps with sleep and regulating your internal body clock, and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Further, the improvements felt by the light-therapy group were comparable to those experienced by using antidepressant drugs.
