LED light therapy is one of the fastest-growing skincare and beauty trends. Used by aestheticians for years, consistency is key, which is why there is an increasing number of at-home LED beauty devices. Below are the scientifically proven benefits of using red, blue, and green LED lights.
Is LED Light Safe?
Let’s first address any concerns. LED lights do not contain ultraviolet rays and there is no risk of burning your skin. LEDs are safe for all skin types and skin colors but should not be used if you are taking Accutane or have an open skin sore or rash. Side effects are extremely rare and include redness, inflammation, and irritation. All you will feel is a bit of warmth when using LED lights, but it is not hot or painful.
What Are The Beauty Benefits of Red LED Light?
Infrared light (red LED) is the most versatile of the LEDs. It penetrates your outer layer of skin and its beauty benefits include:
- Stimulating collagen production
- Reduced inflammation
- Promotes cellular repair
- Improves circulation for a youthful glow
- Minimizes scarring and even skin tone
- Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
What Are The Beauty Benefits Of Blue LED Light?
Blue LED light is particularly effective for oily and acne-prone skin. Beauty benefits include:
- Purifying the skin
- Kills bacteria
- Soothes inflammation
- Stabilizes the sebaceous oil glands
- Treats and minimizes pimples and cystic acne
What Are The Beauty Benefits Of Green LED Light?
Green LED light is known best for its calming and soothing effects. Its beauty benefits include:
- Soothes inflamed skin
- Minimizes dilated capillaries
- Treats and minimizes rosacea
- Minimizes hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and dark circles
Which Type Of LED Therapy Is Right For My Skincare Routine?
You can simply choose the LED therapy that targets your individual skincare needs. However, LED lights can be used as both a proactive and reactive approach to anti-aging. You can benefit from red, blue, and green so there is no need to choose just one. With The Wave you can incorporate all 3 LEDs in one beauty treatment.
How Does The Wave Work?
The Wave is an all-in-one device that provides 4 individual modalities, including LEDs, to treat, tone, and repair your skin. What makes our anti-aging beauty device unique is that you can use multiple modalities at once. Here are your options, each of which provides 4 levels of intensity:
Positive Ions—this is the only modality that must be used separately. Apply your cream cleanser and use The Wave to pull debris from deep within your pores. Then, you can apply a serum or water-based gel and complete the remaining modalities for 5 to 10 minutes on each side of the face and neck.
Negative Ions—this modality helps your serum to deeper penetrate your pores increasing hydration and the effectiveness of your skincare products.
Ultrasound Waves—this mode stimulates circulation, helps drain lymph nodes, increases product penetration, and stimulates repair at the cellular level to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.
Biomechanical Vibrations—these gentle vibrations stimulate muscle cells, speed metabolism, and boost nutrients and oxygen to the tissue which smooths and tones the skin.
