The Lowdown On Red LED Light Therapy From The Experts

• 04 December 2023

Red LED light therapy is the topic on everyone’s lips.

A firm favourite amongst the top beauty and medical industry experts, red LED light therapy speeds up healing, calms inflammation and is especially effective for anti-ageing.

Although once reserved for glow-boosting treatments in-clinic, red LED light therapy has now become a steadfast household beauty staple. Hands free, portable and oh-so easy to use, red LED light masks are the new best way for getting glowing and younger looking skin at home. Even our favourite American-gone-Parisian Emily Cooper was using our LED face mask in the third season of 'Emily in Paris.'

Here's what the power of red light therapy can do for you.

NASA were the first to use this technology to assist plant growth. It wasn't long before this regenerative light therapy was adopted by medical and aesthetic professionals. 

“A good way to think of it is like plants absorbing sunlight to power photosynthesis and boost tissue growth, explains aesthetic surgeon," Dr. Glyn Estebanez. "Human cells can absorb light wavelengths to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin."

 

What is red LED light therapy good for?

LED light therapy uses specific wavelengths to activate the skin’s natural cell rejuvenation and repair process. Red and near-infrared wavelengths are used for increasing your natural collagen levels to keep skin plump, firm and elastic (at any age).

Red light therapy wavelengths are ideal for fading fine lines, wrinkles and inflammation. It’s also extremely effective for tackling acne, rosacea and sun damage. 

Near-infrared light is the deepest absorbed wavelength. It’s used to reverse the signs of ageing by improving skin elasticity, reducing inflammation, redness and wound healing.

 

Combined, these wavelengths deliver immediate and lasting results for fresher, calmer and healthier skin. They also target other skin conditions and cosmetic concerns, such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. Suitable for both face and body, this professional medical-grade technology has the ability to truly transform your skin. 

The benefits of red LED light therapy are more than just skin deep. It’s been proven to support the production of vitamin D, with users finding that regular treatments reduce stress and improve energy levels.

LED red light therapy for anti-ageing

"Red light and near-infrared light wavelengths really help to reduce inflammation and create collagen," explains aesthetics clinician, Dr. Ayah. "Collagen helps the skin look younger, plumper and more evenly textured, which some studies have shown naturally decreases from our mid twenties onwards." This is where the term ‘prejuvenation’ comes in. 

"'Prejuvenation' is a preventative protocol that combines a good skincare regime with non-surgical treatments to help promote collagen production and support the skin barrier,” says cosmetic surgeon and founder of 111 Harley Street Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Yannis Alexandrides. “Prevention is always better than a cure.”
