Red Light Can Help Remove Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Red light therapy really helps in reducing the fine lines and wrinkles on your body. Yes! Finally, a viable fix for fighting wrinkles without needing to spend thousands of pounds on beauty products that last for a week or so. It is also much safer and completely non-invasive, well apart from needing to use eye-cups! Many beauty products are thought to have negative impacts in the long run.
By powering up the cells inside a human body using the power of red light, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is released. ATP helps to boost metabolism, regeneration of cells and the efficiency of cells at doing their jobs. The more the ATP is released, the more blood capillaries are formed inside a human body. Capillaries are used to carry oxygen and nutrients from one part of the human body to another.
More capillaries mean more oxygen is being transported in the body, resulting in instant radiant and relaxed skin, vis-à-vis, less wrinkles and fine lines.
The Importance of Collagen and elastin
There are two main factors that contribute to saggy or wrinkly skin: loss of fat & loss of collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping the body skin firm and tight and are the key to fighting wrinkles. The loss of collagen means that skin starts losing its firmness.
Red light wavelengths penetrate the skin and promote the production of ATP in the body’s cells and thereby the production of collagen. Collagen (together with elastin) gives your skin the elasticity, firmness, and fullness that we all aspire to and helps with anti-ageing.
A cleaner, clearer skin
Low Level Light Therapy (LLTP) – another name for Red Light Therapy – also helps in increasing lymphatic system activity. The job of lymphatic system is to remove excess wastes and fluids from one’s body. What this means is that you’ll notice cleaner skin, one that has been purged of swelling and puffiness due to red marks and dust particles.
Oh, and it might become a very fundamental part in fixing inflamed acne.
We’re all suffered from inflamed acne at one point of our lives. A safe therapy like this is especially popular among teenagers who suffer the most from acne.
LLTP also helps in the production of fibroblasts. Fibroblasts help in reducing pore size, hence reducing excessive skin oils and acne. Fibroblasts also help smoothen your skin.
