Renew your skin with LED light therapy, it seems as if every day new, exciting technologies are created to help slow down the aging process. Traditionally, medical anti-aging, and wrinkle treatments have been fairly aggressive, and Botox and all sorts of injections and laser treatments come to mind. Over the past few years, awareness of the safety of ingredients used in these procedures as well as in cosmetics have come to the forefront and a surge in demand for more natural and holistic approaches to treat different skin types and conditions have appeared. What does LED light therapy do for the skin?
One of the most exciting fields today is light therapy. To be a little more precise, light-emitting diodes (LED). I have used this powerful modality in my private practice for a few years now, and the results my clients have seen have been very exciting. I have always believed that Photomodulation (LED light therapy) is the most powerful and least understood modality in all of the aesthetics – and its potential to treat aging and problem skin conditions is impressive to say the very least.
For this reason, I want to share it with you and give you some info on how to evaluate skincare devices before you decide to purchase one for yourself.
- Reduces redness and inflammation, (red LED)
- Stimulates collagen, (red LED)
- Lifts and tightens skin, (red LED)
Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) in the Red spectrum penetrate into the skin to help increase collagen production. Research shows that red light therapy helps encourage the production of collagen and elastin (the skin’s building blocks) within the skin’s supportive structure. This is beneficial for the skin’s appearance because the dermis (skin’s middle layer), has an elastic quality due to the presence of elastin fibers, and increasing collagen and elastin production helps improve the skin’s appearance. Red Light Therapy can help your skin look younger and healthier. The skin appears smoother, tighter, and fresher and fine lines/wrinkles are reduced. Red LED referred to as “the healing light”, reduces inflammation.
- Kills bacteria that lead to acne (blue LED)
- Balances oily skin (blue LED)
For decades it has been noted that acne improves with exposure to UV light. Blue LED light is closely related to UV light, therefore retaining many of its same anti-bacterial and germicidal properties – without the UV damage caused by UV. This light source has a wavelength that penetrates deep into the pore where the P. acnes bacteria live. This light is even capable of reaching painful, cystic acne.
The P. Acnes bacteria excrete a waste product. When the blue LED light is introduced into the pore, it activates this waste product to release free radicals, which turn and kill the bacteria. Red light has a therapeutic effect on acne, and the speed at which the skin heals is greatly increased when it is exposed to visible red light. Red LED light uses non-thermal, low-energy light to increase blood and oxygen flow, which stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, and reduces the pain associated with acne.
- Helps lighten hyperpigmentation (green LED)
- Fade Dark Spots (green LED)
- Brighten Skin (green LED)
- Reduce Redness (green LED)
The calming and brightening setting is wonderful for individuals who suffer from hyperpigmentation and redness. Green LED light therapy has been shown to help fade dark spots, brighten skin, and reduce redness. Take advantage of the added ions and ultrasonic vibrations in this mode as well, and use Brightening Moisture Fluid and speed up the results.
Setting 4. Skin Rejuvenation – Anti-aging with product infusion
- Red LED 630 nm
- Negatively-charged ions
- Ultrasonic Vibration
This setting is for taking your serum and moisturizer to the next level. After cleansing skin, apply your skin care starting with either a non-oil-based product like Rapid Repair Fluid or finishing with oil/cream-based moisturizers like The Elixir Skin Perfecting Fluid or Lipid Booster. Click the button four (4) times for Setting Four for Skin Rejuvenation, and treat the area for up to five minutes using slow and circular movements. Tip: For best glide, wait one minute after applying skincare products to allow ingredients to settle. The combination of Red LED therapy, ultrasonic vibrations, and ions will deeply infuse your skincare into the dermal layers for optimal nourishment while stimulating natural collagen production. Pay attention to how plump and radiant your skin will feel and look after the first treatment, and long-lasting results with continued use. Hold the power button down for up to five seconds until the device turns off. Clean device and surface with alcohol wipes.

In the Clinic
I have used LED light therapy in my clinic for years and is the one tool I would never be without. I have successfully treated so many conditions with my light therapy devices along with my botanical skincare products and always wished my clients could use LED much more often because I know what it can do. Well, I got my wish when I was introduced to My Skin Buddy in October! Having been in this business for as long as I have, I have literally seen it all and had more products and devices pitched to me than I can possibly count. Some had benefits and others were nothing to write home about, and some were a down-right rip off designed to make millions selling nothing but “hope” that typically ends up in the bathroom drawer after a couple of weeks when disappointment sets in.. … that being said, I have never been a “gadget” crazy esthetician (or consumer), but when “My Skin Buddy” was put into my hands (and I gave it a try) – I was genuinely impressed! Finally! A home skincare device that really works that I can recommend to my clients and never have to apologize for! Now I say, “ditch your skin brush and get a Skin Buddy”! This little skin device has truly amazed me…
