Cold Light Therapy
Safely & Naturally Rejuvenate your skin
What is Cold Light Therapy?
Cold Light Therapy is the interaction of light, delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), to activate cell receptors, causing them to produce collagen or multiply. One of the original applications for LEDs was PhotoDynamic Therapy (PDT), which uses photo-activated creams for the treatment of actinic keratosis and pre-cancerous lesions.
How does Cold Light Therapy work?
LEDs offer a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. The light from the LEDs interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce new collagen and elastin. Studies confirm that this same LED energy can be used to inhibit collagen formation, which can be helpful in the treatment of scars. By manipulating the wavelengths, cells can be turned on and off.
Yellow light LEDs are used for photo-rejuvenation
Blue LEDs are used in the treatment of acne
Red light LEDs are used for PhotoDynamic therapy
How are LEDs different from laser and PL therapy?
Other light-based skin therapies, including intense pulsed light and laser treatments, rely on thermal injury to the skin’s collagen, water, or blood vessels to create changes in your skin’s appearance. LED Skin Rejuvenation does not rely on thermal energy and related tissue trauma to effect change. Therefore, patients are not subject to the variables associated with wound healing.
What are the benefits?
Treatments are less expensive than other light-based therapies. The main benefit is a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, scars, and redness. In addition, the treatments are pain free with no downtime at all.
