LED stands for light-emitting diode. NASA originally developed LED lights in the 1960s for stimulating plant growth in space experiments, but scientists discovered that LEDs were also very effective when used on human tissue for growth and recovery.
LED light therapy works by activating photoreceptors within skin cells, producing energy for absorption by skin components in order to improve your skin's overall complexion and promote natural skin rejuvenation. Over time, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to recover normally due to aging, sun damage and unforeseen external conditions. Light therapy is used to trigger your body's natural cell processes in order to fuel recovery and rejuvenation of those compromised skin cells, while also treating acne and killing bacteria.
Health benefits light therapy can offer include scar repair, boosted collagen production, sun damage recovery, lightening of age spots, acne prevention, tightening of dull & aging skin, reduction of inflammation and wrinkles, etc. After decades of research and clinical trials regarding light therapy benefits, medical experts & scientists agree that light therapy is currently one of the most effective skincare solutions. It is clinically proven that light therapy can improve skin health, promote skin recovery, prevent skin inflammation, and much more!

Please note that although light therapy can be used to improve these skin conditions, result will vary due to the differences in severity.
