Scientific Background

LED produces multiple wavelengths of visible and invisible light delivered at low intensity. Because there is little or no heat generated from LED there is no risk of tissue damage.

LED technology was originally developed to enhance the growth of plant tissue in space by NASA. NASA’s space program also proved that LED light promotes wound healing and human tissue growth. It is for these reasons that LED therapy has become a significant and useful aesthetic procedure.

LED therapy is the application of sending a broad band of energy at a low intensity to the skin for therapeutic and anti-aging purposes. LED photo facial treatment is effective in generating a response within living tissue because it activates and stimulates the ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) within the body. ATP governs how cells use energy and when ATP use is enhance from LED exposure, it prompts affected cells to do what they do naturally, but at an accelerated rate.
