Light Emitting Diodes or LED has become a staple for skin rejuvenation in aesthetic medical practices, spas and for home use. LED is well-known for its benefits including fighting the signs of aging, reducing acne, calming inflammation, revitalizing dull skin and evening skin tone. There are several devices on the market including professional panels, hand-held lights and now the trending LED face masks. So why is LED so popular and how does it really work? To better understand how LED benefits the skin let’s learn how it works at a cellular level.
How LED Works
LED devices generate a type of energy necessary for the repair and regeneration of human cells, similar to the process by which plant life converts light energy into chemical energy through photosynthesis. The body’s cells can absorb photons and convert them to a form of energy that cells use to carry out normal functions. This form of energy is called adenosine triphosphate or ATP. As we age, we produce less ATP, which inhibits cells from performing at peak function, in this way, ATP is like fuel for a car, without it the car will not run. ATP is necessary to power metabolic processes, synthesize DNA and RNA, repair and regenerate cell components and foster cell proliferation. In addition to building proteins like collagen and elastin, ATP is critical to maintaining homeostasis for cell stability and the facilitation of healing.
