LED Light Therapy, True or False?

The use of LED light therapy in facial rejuvenation is becoming increasingly common.

LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to target various skin concerns. It is a popular form of treatment for skin rejuvenation because it is safe, painless, and effective.

It can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne. It is also a popular treatment option for individuals who are looking for a more natural, non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation.


There is strong scientific evidence to support the use of LED light therapy in anti-aging*. The therapy has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increase collagen production, improve skin texture and elasticity, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage.


Many dermatologists, estheticians, and other skincare professionals now offer LED light therapy as part of their facial rejuvenation services. Additionally, there are many at-home LED light therapy devices available on the market, which allow individuals to perform LED light therapy treatments in the comfort of their own homes.


LED light therapy can help in skin rejuvenation in several ways:


1. Stimulates collagen production: LED light therapy stimulates the production of collagen, which is a protein that is essential for healthy, youthful-looking skin. Collagen helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Increases blood circulation: LED light therapy increases blood circulation in the treated area, which helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin cells. This can improve the overall health of the skin and promote a more radiant complexion.

3. Reduces inflammation: LED light therapy can help to reduce inflammation in the skin, which can be a contributing factor to many skin concerns, including acne, rosacea, and eczema.

4. Improves skin tone and texture: LED light therapy can help to improve the tone and texture of the skin by reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots, and by promoting a more even skin tone.


What is the price point?


The cost of LED light therapy in facial rejuvenation can vary depending on a number of factors, including the location, the expertise of the practitioner, and the type of device used. In general, a single LED light therapy session can cost anywhere from $50 to $200, although prices may be higher in certain areas or for more specialized treatments.

At-home LED light therapy devices are also available on the market, but professional grade devices tend to deliver better results in shorter amounts of time.


It is important to note that multiple LED light therapy sessions may be required to achieve optimal results, and the total cost of treatment will depend on the number of sessions needed. These days many skincare practitioners offer package deals or discounted rates for multiple sessions.

It is recommended to consult with a skincare professional to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs and concerns.


In conclusion, LED light therapy is a relatively new treatment option for facial rejuvenation, but it is gaining popularity due to its effectiveness, safety, and non-invasive nature. As more research is conducted on the benefits of LED light therapy for the skin, it is likely that its use in facial rejuvenation will become even more common.
