LED light therapy is a non-invasive and painless cosmetic treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to improve the appearance of the skin. It has become a popular part of facial treatments in beauty salons, especially in Central London. In this blog, we’ll tell you what all the buzz is about and introduce to you the different colours of light and their benefits for the skin.
Introduction to LED Light Therapy
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, a type of semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it. LED light therapy uses different colours of light to target specific skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
The therapy is performed by placing a device with LED lights over the face, which delivers the light energy into the skin. The skin absorbs the light, which triggers a series of cellular reactions that result in various benefits for the skin.
LED light therapy is safe, painless, and does not cause any harm to the skin. It’s a great option for those who are looking for an alternative to cosmetic surgery or injectables.
Red Light Therapy
The first colour of light used in LED light therapy is red. Red light is known to stimulate collagen production, which is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. By increasing collagen production, red light therapy can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.
Red light therapy is also used to treat rosacea, a skin condition that causes redness and inflammation on the face. The therapy helps to soothe and calm the skin, reducing the symptoms of rosacea.

Blue Light Therapy
The next colour of light used in LED light therapy is blue. Blue light therapy is used to treat acne by killing the bacteria that cause breakouts. It works by penetrating the skin and killing the Propionibacterium acnes bacteria, which is responsible for causing inflammation and breakouts.
Blue light therapy is a great option for those who are looking for an alternative to topical creams and antibiotics, which can be harsh and cause side effects.

Green Light Therapy
Green light therapy is used to improve the overall appearance of the skin. It helps to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation, making it a great option for those who suffer from sun damage or have uneven skin tone.
Green light therapy works by balancing the skin’s natural pigments, which helps to even out the skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
