Introduction to LED
LED Light Therapy has the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing process. It is a non-ablative and non-invasive way of treating the skin; by working with the skin to encourage it’s own natural healing process.
Light therapy uses a number of LED bulbs (light emitting diode) to deliver optimised light at a specific wavelength to stimulate a change within the skin, without the need for skin care ingredients or wounding the skin. Making it an effective treatment for all skin types, including hypersensitive and rosacea skins. In a similar fashion to plants, our cells have the ability to absorb light and convert it in to energy.
History of LED
In 1903, a Nobel Prize of Medicine was given to a scientist by the name of Niels Finsen for the use of light therapy; once known as photo therapy. Research progressed and by the 1960s photo therapy – now referred to as LED Therapy (or LEDT) was being used primarily in Eastern Europe for treatment of chronic pain, arthritis and associated conditions, joint rehabilitation, and soft-tissue injury along with other medical ailments.
In recent years Blue light therapy has been evaluated and studied. It is a derivitive of UV therapy used in the past for Psoriasis, to stimulate the immune system, destroy bacteria, Acne, actinic keratosis (AK), SADs (Seasonal Effect Disorder), treatments for gout, gouty arthritis, bursitis and other inflammatory conditions of muscles and joints. The current data has shown that Blue light therapy is an effective means for treating such conditions and has been further supported by many Dermatologist groups, such as the AAD, BAD and more. Additionally, many professional sports teams and athletes have found that LED therapy can be used to aid in sports related injuries, and physical therapists have noted a recovery time of 50 times faster than without the therapy.
In 2001, based of the abundance of proven data on Red light therapy, Infrared light therapy and Blue light therapy ,LIGHTWAVE developed the first device to combine the benefits of these wavelengths of light through the use of LEDs in a compact and highly efficient modality.
