Why Hollywood Stars Love Light Therapy
From the red carpet to the spotlight stage, Hollywood’s stars are no strangers to the powerful power of light. Their skin is glowing thanks to the latest light-based skin treatment. Stars like Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, and Jessica Alba have been sharing their experience with LED light therapy masks that are designed to boost collagen, reduce inflammation and banish acne-related bumps and scars.
In Kaiyan Medical we can develop your own beauty light therapy mask worth of the celebrities’ skin.
How it Works
These amazing light masks are recommended by dermatologists and estheticians who credit the masks’ multi-colored UV-free wavelengths with improving clients’ complexions.
“Tiny particles of light are called photons, which cells absorb and transform into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the form of energy that cells use to carry out normal functions,”
says L.A.-based celebrity facialist Shani Darden.
“ATP is then used to power the metabolic process and repair and regenerate cells.”
In short, just like LEDs have been proven to encourage plant growth (what’s a greenhouse without a good grow light?), LEDs can have a similar stimulating effect on skin cells by jump-starting the rejuvenation process.
But not all lights are created equal. Different wavelengths of light have different benefits.
“Blue-light wavelengths destroy bacteria in the skin to improve acne,”
says Toronto-based cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Martie S. Gidon. It’s worth noting that LED therapy is not effective at treating hormonal acne and is only recommended for inflammatory acne — in other words, pimples caused by bacteria — and works best when paired with topical acne medication.
For anti-aging results, red light therapy is for you.
“Red-light wavelengths penetrate more deeply than blue light and stimulate fibroblasts to produce collagen, resulting in tighter skin and smooth fine lines,”
says Dr. Gidon, who also praises the red light’s anti-inflammatory effect for use post-facials and peels. Another light used in combination with the other two is infrared.
“It accelerates healing and encourages greater product absorption,”
says Shani who recommends clients use a combination of both blue/red light therapy and infrared.
Home LED masks have been growing in popularity, especially with the COVID restrictions. You can opt for flexible home masks for personal use or well, the spa line which packs more lights and cover a bigger zone. With so effective results, it’s no wonder stars like Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz are opting to lay down inside LED beds in order to treat their entire bodies to the rejuvenating powers of the lights.
