Why does skin show signs of aging?
As we get older the components of our skin—especially the proteins collagen and elastin—degenerate, which sets the stage for the appearance of wrinkles, creases, folds, and furrows. The breakdown of collagen and elastin, which is accelerated by sun exposure and gravity, results in sagging skin. Over the years, skin is also damaged by other factors such as pollution, harsh soaps and chemicals, cigarette smoke, drinking alcohol, and eating unhealthy foods.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), as skin ages its cells begin to produce excess amounts of free radicals—unstable oxygen molecules. Under ideal circumstances, these free radicals are removed by naturally occurring antioxidants within the skin's tissues. However, antioxidants are in short supply in aging skin cells. Thus, a growing number of free radicals are left unchecked to cause damage to cell membranes, proteins, and DNA. Free radicals eventually break down the skin's collagen, a protein substance in connective tissue, and release chemicals that cause inflammation in the skin. It is a combination of these cellular and molecular events that leads to skin aging and the formation of wrinkles.
Considerable research has been done in an attempt to understand the aging process, and studies show that products producing bioactive effects (those that interact with living tissues or systems) can benefit sun-damaged, discolored, and aging skin. The effects of the red and infrared light from LED Technologies' DPL™ Therapy are giving people new, non-invasive, healthy choices for restoring their overall appearance.
How does LED light help aging skin?
Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150-200 percent faster when exposed to certain wavelengths of light. More than 40 years of independent research has shown that red and infrared light produced by LEDs can deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. These red and infrared lightwaves are absorbed by the skin, and have been shown to effect at least 24 positive changes at various levels.
Visible red LED light penetrates to a depth of about 8-10 mm, and because of the skin's high blood and water content, red light is readily absorbed and can deliver enough energy to stimulate a response from the body to heal itself. Red light is beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, and infections. Invisible red light (infrared) penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm and is used as a source of energy to stimulate fibroblast cell activity in the skin, which increases the production of those critical anti-aging proteins—collagen and elastin. Infrared light is also effective for treating joints and deep muscles.
LED photons must be absorbed to produce a biological response. All biological systems have a unique absorption spectrum, and this uniqueness determines which wavelengths of light will be absorbed to produce a given therapeutic effect. The visible red and infrared portions of the light spectrum have been shown to be highly absorbent and produce unique restorative effects in living tissues. It is thought that as light photons are absorbed by the skin and underlying tissue they trigger biological changes within the body in a process know as photobiomodulation. Although the exact mechanism of action is still being studied, it is known that this light increases oxygen and blood flow, which facilitates wound healing.
The application of LED light is a non-invasive therapy that activates skin cells with low-level, non-thermal light energy. LED therapy converts light to energy within the skin cells—similar to the process of photosynthesis in plants, which takes sunlight and converts it into food energy. This therapy is one of the only non-invasive tools available today that can reverse the visible signs of skin aging. LED Technologies' DPL™ System provides a proprietary lightwave design that penetrates deep into the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, crow's feet, irregular skin tone, and other signs of skin aging.
