LED Light Therapy To Treat Pigmentation
LED Technology offers a non-chemical, non-invasive alternative treatment to a number of skin conditions including pigmentation problems. LED light therapy (Light Emitting Diode Technology) is a therapy that utilizes the therapeutic effects of light to heal skin conditions. LED is used for light therapy as it emits a low-level power light ray that stimulates skin cells but is not harmful or irritating to the skin and will not cause cancer. LED light therapy is used to treat pigmentation such as age spots as well as other skin condition such as psoriasis, eczema and fine lines and wrinkles. LED light therapy is suitable for all skin types and skin color.
LED light therapy can be used to treat pigmentation problems on both fair and dark skin and photo-aging. It has numerous anti-aging effects. LED light therapy is particularly useful for treating superficial hyperpigmentation. LED light therapy has a number of benefits for skin care patients because it is non-invasive and there is no scarring. Unlike other treatments such as laser therapy, this procedure is relaxing and comfortable. Brown spots can be diminished and the light rays stimulate collagen, which gives the face a smooth appearance, resulting in younger looking spotless skin.
Pigmentation on the face and neck, décolletage and hands can be treated with LED light therapy. LED light therapy is a safe and painless procedure and there is no risk of burning or damaging the skin. After using this therapy, the skin texture appears smoother, skin appears brighter and there is no down time or peeling, as can happen in some laser treatments for pigmentation problems. While hand-held versions of LED light therapy are now being sold around the world, the best place to have an LED light therapy session is through a trained skin care specialist. Such a session may start with microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells and allow for more effective light penetration. Lights are then beamed at treatment areas of skin for a few minutes. Results can be seen immediately or after a series of sessions, depending on your skin tone, lifestyle and age. Some people may need six to eight sessions before effective results can be seen. It is recommended that you place sessions one week apart. After a series of treatment has resulted in a satisfactory outcome, it is recommended that you have LED light therapy once or twice a month as maintenance treatment. LED light therapy can be used by itself or in conjunction with microdermabrasion, ultrasonic treatments and facials in order to improve pigmentation problems, and improve the skin tone and texture. Topical skin treatments and special skin care regimens can also be used to complement and boost the effects of the LED light therapy sessions.
