Reverse the effects of aging, genetics, hormones, skin damage and your lifestyle.
WellingtonMD offers LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes), producing a constant source of high density and high-intensity pure light at a specific color/wavelength. Used in combination with other aesthetic treatments, light therapy can help enhance results. LED light therapy improves skin health on a cellular level, promoting elastin and collagen production by stimulating the cells to work harder. This results in improved circulation, extending the lifetime of cells and reducing inflammation, which leads to a marked improvement in the skin condition.
LED (light-emitting diode) light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that enters the skin’s layers to improve the skin.
In the 1990s, NASA began studying LED’s effects in promoting wound healing in astronauts by helping cells and tissues grow.
LED light therapy uses various wavelengths that correspond to different visible colors.
Each color penetrates the skin at different depths.
- Blue light affects the uppermost layer of your skin.
- Yellow light penetrates deeper.
- Red light travels further into your skin.
- Near-infrared light penetrates deepest.
Different LED colors do different things. For example, experts believe:
- Red LED light therapy may reduce inflammation and stimulate the production of collagen, a protein responsible for younger-looking skin that diminishes with age.
- Blue LED light therapy may destroy acne-causing bacteria (P. acnes).
During treatment, skin specialists may use a combination of lights to treat your specific issue.
Red Light: 640nm
Skin penetration depth 1-4mm
Red Light works from the inside-out to enhance mitochondrial function in cells. It decreases skin inflammation, smooths the skin tone, repairs sun damage, fades scars, reduces stretch marks and builds collagen in the skin, reducing wrinkles. It will also treat dermatitis or ringworm.
Blue Light: 423nm
Skin penetration depth: 0.8 – 1.2mm
Blue Light has an antimicrobial effect, making it effective at killing several types of bacteria that can collect in your pores and oil glands causing breakouts. It also reduces sebum production and minimizes pores.
Yellow Light: 583nm
Skin penetration depth 1-2mm
Yellow Light is used for inflammation reduction, stimulates lymphocyte production, activates toxin elimination, helps to heal psoriasis and eczema, and reduces redness from rosacea
