What is the best skin rejuvenation?

There are different types of light that have different workings on your skin. Red light therapy is a good way to rejuvenate the skin. There are also a number of other types of light therapy for the skin that can help with this. These are some important types of light that can promote your skin:

  • Blue light;

However, it is important to follow a special treatment method. Improper exposure to light can also have a negative effect. For example, some artificial sources such as a tanning bed are often not good for rejuvenating your skin.

What does red light do for the skin?

A popular and effective way of skin rejuvenation is the use of red light therapy. It has several positive effects on the skin. Also for other reasons, such as the treatment of acne, scars or eczema , red light can be a good treatment method. Below you can read about the benefits of red light therapy as a skin treatment.

1. Stimulation of collagen production

As you age, the production of collagen decreases. This causes you to develop wrinkles and less elastic skin. Red light can boost collagen production again by stimulating fibroblasts in the skin. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and it is possible to reduce or prevent wrinkles and fine lines.

2. Improvement of skin texture

Thanks to the stimulation of collagen and elastin production, red light can help improve skin texture. This leaves the skin looking smoother and more even. Red light therapy for the face thereby provides a younger appearance!

3. Reduction of inflammation

Red light has anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce or prevent inflammation in the skin. Therefore, the use of red light therapy can be useful for conditions such as acne, rosacea and other inflammation-related skin conditions.

4. Acceleration of the healing process

Red light can improve blood circulation and increase oxygen supply to skin cells. This accelerates the healing process of the skin. This means that scars, acne, redness and irritations diminish faster.

Is infrared the same as red light?

Red light is often confused with infrared. However, it is not the same thing. They can have similar effects on the skin, though. Red light is primarily used to stimulate collagen production, reduce inflammation and improve oxygenation.

Infrared is often used to improve blood circulation and speed up the skin’s healing process. With red light therapy, you can also achieve these effects.

How long should you do light therapy?

The duration of light therapy treatment depends on which treatment method you use. These sessions can range from a few minutes to half an hour per session. It also varies how often you need to repeat this session to achieve the right effects. However, we can give you some more information about red light treatment.
