Light therapy has shown promising results in the treatment of some skin conditions, and nowadays it is also easily available. The therapy improves the complexion and rejuvenates the skin.

FREMONT, CA: Nowadays, in the beauty industry, the terms red, blue, and green light therapy have become very popular. However, the question is, what kind of light therapy are these, and what do they do?  These lights cannot only reach different layers of the skin, but they can also contact the dermis layers as they travel at a wavelength of 633 (Red Light), 532 (Green Light), and 415 (Blue Light). When the light reaches the dermis layers, it boosts the cells and stimulates a response from the body to use the light. Therefore, the light rays enhance the rejuvenation procedure with the help of increased blood flow, collagen stimulation, detoxification process, and much more.

Based on various studies and their results conducted around the world, light therapy is one of the efficient ways in which a person detoxes their skin, removes wrinkles, and brings back the glow on the skin that every individual desires for. The Pharma industry is also focusing on light therapy because of the benefits that it showers on the people and also due to the increasing demand for it among the consumers. Here are some of the benefits of the three types of light therapies—red, green, and blue, also known as Collagenic Light, Bright Skin Light, and Blue Skin Light

Advantages of Red Light

1. Renews Collagen and Elastin Fibers- Leading to a Brightening Effect

The proteins that naturally exist in the skin as structural support are collagen and elastin, among this, collagen is the most copious protein in the body. Collagen gives skin strength and has the task of replacing the dead skin cells. On the other hand, elastin is the connective tissue, and this permits the body to resume into their original shape after contracting or stretching. However, as the skin ages, it loses some of the firmness and elasticity, leading to an older complexion.

Collagenic light can reach the deepest layer of the skin that is the dermis layer. It reactivates the production of collagen, leading to an increase in collagen and elastin proteins. This leads to a brightening effect that gives a boost to the skin’s original luster.

2. Anti-aging- Diminishing Fine Lines and Wrinkles

One of the uses of Collagenic light that is gaining popularity among the consumers is its anti-aging properties. According to studies, when the skin gets exposed to the red light, it automatically starts the renewal procedure of the elastin and collagen cells. The renewal of cells enhances the fine lines and wrinkles, and it becomes less visible. Moreover, the red light also helps to improve the overall firmness, texture, and complexion of the skin.
