The LED Light Therapy technology was developed by NASA to improve wound healing and tissue growth in space. It also assisted with tired and fatigued astronauts upon their return.
The potential of this technology was then introduced into the medical market to treat babies with jaundice, cancer sufferers post radio and chemotherap and post surgery wound healing.
In terms of skin care, LED works by emitting lght that penetrates deep into the skin cells providing them with energy. The cells converts light energy into fuel (like photosynthesis) in turn stimulating the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin.
This increased energy stimulates cells to produce proteins, lipids elastin and collagen fibres needed to repair damage such as wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation, sagging and enlarged pores all at the same time.

Benefits of LED:
Typically 10, 20 minutes sessions will reduce wrinkles and improve your skin by 60%. A vast majority of people will see significant improvement during treatments but the full effect of a treatment program will be seen 2 - 4 months after the treatment program has ended.
Treatments should be a week to two weeks apart, at most.
