Shine a Light: LED light in red, blue and green is particularly beneficial for our skin

It is supposed to alleviate wrinkles, pigment spots and even stubborn diseases such as acne or psoriasis: LED light is a new and particularly gentle form of skin care that works completely without chemicals and gives the perfect complexion in record time. UV rays from the sun or blue light emitted from screens can cause enormous damage to the skin - but differently dosed, the wavelengths act as a gentle therapy. The LED light in red, blue and green penetrates deep into the skin layers and stimulates natural processes that contribute to a younger, more radiant and healthier complexion. We clarify what each light color is all about and which innovative products are already available for therapy with light.

LED-Facial: This is how every light color affects the skin

1.Blue LED light

We recently reported that blue light emitted by digital screens is extremely harmful to the skin and causes it to age faster - keyword: digital aging. In fact, this blue light also has another and super positive side: Again, it is about the correct dosage of the wavelength, which may only be between 420 and 480 nanometers. This is the area of ​​blue light that can influence the body's hormonal balance and is used as a gentle remedy for winter depression and sleep disorders. The blue light also has a very special effect on the skin. It reacts to certain molecules found in the acne-causing bacterial strain Propionibacterium Acnes. If these molecules absorb the blue light, they turn into poisonous opponents for the bacteria and kill them. The cycle of acne formation is interrupted and the skin disease can be treated in a particularly gentle way. In addition, blue light accelerates the production of new skin cells. The complexion looks generally rejuvenated and refreshed. But that's not all: at a wavelength of 453 nanometers, the blue light has a positive effect on psoriasis, as it inhibits inflammation and the formation of skin flakes and thus helps against the difficult skin disease without any irritating chemicals.

2.Red LED light

Red LED light is also often referred to as infrared light - if this is the case, we speak of the wavelength (optimally between 660 and 905 nanometers) that penetrates deepest into the skin. There it stimulates the body's own collagen production, a structural protein that strengthens the connective tissue of the skin. It also stimulates the repair mechanism of the cells and the blood flow in small blood vessels, which in turn has a positive effect on the complexion and structure of the skin. Particularly exciting: If you apply a nourishing serum, mask or cream to the surface of the skin beforehand, the active ingredients can be better absorbed by treatment with red LED light and penetrate deeper into the skin. By the way, red light also inhibits inflammation - pimplescan therefore be optimally prevented by therapy with red light, in combination with blue light it is an extremely effective weapon against stubborn acne. This is even proven by a study from 2000 published in the British Journal of Dermatology. 107 acne patients were divided into four groups and treated with different therapy methods over a period of twelve weeks. The group that was exposed to both red and blue light daily emerged victorious from the study - 76 percent of the inflammatory acne had improved in the subjects. Blackheads were also reduced by 56 percent after the twelve weeks of light therapy.

3.Green LED light

Green LED light is known for its migraine-relieving properties, but this wavelength, which should be around 525 nanometers on average, also has a calming and healing effect on the skin. It is said to reduce hyperpigmentation, which leads to discolored areas or age spots and is often caused by sunlight. While there are no studies as extensive as red and blue light, it is believed that green LED light is aimed at melanocytes, the pigment cells in the outermost layer of the skin. The green light inhibits the melanocytes from producing excess melanin and stops these pigments before they settle on the surface of the skin. In addition, with regular treatment, it should break up existing accumulations of melanin and thus soften dark spots step by step.
