How is the treatment of acne scars with LED photomodulation?

 Light Emitting Diode (LED) photomodulation therapy is also recognized as LED phototherapy. LED photomodulation therapy was initially used by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Later, it is also used by medical doctors and by the United States Navy SEALS. Medical doctors use LED photomodulation therapy mostly to heal wounds and muscle. LED photomodulation procedure is a form of light therapy. Light therapy is a well-established intervention. This therapy has been used for the past 100 years accompanied by extensive research. Much research has been conducted to study and understand more about this therapy. Many studies focussing on the uses, advantages, disadvantages, complications, and how to use LED photomodulation therapy. Laser light treatments for acne scars is an amazing therapy to get rid of your acne scars and any pimples on your skin.

LED phototherapy or Low-Level Laser Therapy is a procedure inspired by NASA. National Aeronautics and Space Administration studies photosynthesis with the aid of LED phototherapy. LED phototherapy is currently used in the aesthetic field. It is proven to manage and treat many skin issues such as wrinkly skin.

  LED photomodulation therapy application in the aesthetic field is well supported by multiple pieces of research. You should not be afraid of this procedure. There are holes on our skin which are known as skin pores. Skin pores are the place where our hair follicles and oil glands are located. The size of our skin pores is determined by our genes. Certain people have small pores, and others have bigger pores. Clogging of pores is common and it is caused by sebum, dead cells, and dirt. Clogged pores can result in acne formation.

  The risk for you to develop any side effects is extremely low. However, it is not impossible. The probable side effects are:

  • Skin discomfort
  • Skin redness
  • Dry skin

 The LED photomodulation therapy acts by emitting light that will stimulate our skin cells to work more. An increase in skin cellular activities will result in skin repairing and new healthy skin formation. The advantages of this procedure are:

  • Non-invasive
  • Safe
  • Cost-effective
  • Reduce the size of skin pores
  • Does not harm the skin
  • No thermal damage
  • No physical injury
  • Suitable for all ages
  • Improve lymphatic system circulation
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Remove fine lines and wrinkles
  • No thermal damage
  • No downtime
  • Kills bacteria
  • Heals acne and acne scars
  • Tighten flaccid skin

An increase in cellular activity is a result of increased ATP production due to exposure to light emitted by the LED photomodulation therapy machine. LED photomodulation therapy also increases collagen, elastin and connective tissue production. The adequate production of collagen, elastin, and connective tissue will reduce the size of skin pores, acne, and acne scars.

The outcomes following LED photomodulation therapy varies. Many factors affect the overall result. The factors are skin colour, diet, physical well-being, age, and lifestyle. Up to 15 sessions per week are required for the best outcome. LED photomodulation therapy can also treat other aesthetic related conditions such as hair loss. LED phototherapy delivers the cool laser beam to patients’ scalp. The cool laser beam will induce new hair growth and strengthen existing hairs to prevent them from falling. Laser light treatments for acne scars is an amazing therapy to get rid of your acne scars and any pimples on your skin.
