LED light therapy, the beauty world’s favorite new skin treatment, comes with a whole host of benefits. Below are the top seven reasons you should try LED light therapy.

  1. Highly Effective: LED light therapy is one of the most effective treatments for your skin because it can penetrate far below the surface. Unlike topical creams and ointments, light can reach the deepest layer of the skin. Plus, it uses your body’s own natural restorative abilities. Because it boosts immune function, phototherapy can put your own body to work for you.

  2. Can Be Done at Home: You shouldn’t have to wait for a monthly appointment with an esthetician to give your skin the boost it needs. This dermatologist-recommended treatment can be done in the comfort of your own home. Twenty minutes a day is more than enough to give your skin the boost it needs, and you don’t even need to leave the house to do it.

  3. Makes Your Regular Skincare Routine More Powerful: Different colored lights have different properties, but they all make your skin more sensitive and more receptive to various treatments. You need to make sure that you’re only applying the LED light to fresh, clean skin. However, you will find that the serums and moisturizers that you’re already using are more effective simply because your skin can absorb them more easily.

  4. No Recovery Time: There is absolutely no recovery time for this treatment. As soon as you’re finished, you can apply sunscreen, lotion, or make-up and walk out the door. Whether you’re at home preparing for the day or on a break at work, you’ll never have to worry about walking around with red splotches all over your face.

  5. No Side Effects: Unlike tanning beds, phototherapy does not make use of UV rays, which are harmful and cancerous. You should be careful to avoid applying masks or cleansers before using the device because the light can make your skin hypersensitive, so any product you apply will be far more effective. That being said, LED light therapy is perfectly safe to use at home without the supervision of a medical professional.

  6. Portable & Convenient: Phototherapy devices are convenient and hand-held, so you can easily stick them in your desk, your purse, or even your suitcase. Whether you’re commuting or travelling, your LEDs can travel with you. You don’t have to worry about stuffing them into 3oz. containers to pass airport security, and you don’t have to worry about anything spilling in your bag if you hit some turbulence.

  7. Strong Scientific Backing: There is long-term scientific research for LED therapy dating back over a century. Physicians first started using light therapy to help cure tuberculosis in the early twentieth century. The technology was adapted for easy use by NASA, which needed to develop an easy way to help heal wounds faster in outer space where immune function is weak. Navy SEALS and elite athletes also used it to slash recovery times for injuries.

Indeed, over a century of positive results should be more than enough evidence for even the most skeptical of critics.
