What Are The Risks And Side Effects Of Led Phototherapy Treatment?
LED phototherapy is also known as LED photomodulation therapy. LED photomodulation therapy is not only used by NASA but also by medical doctors and by the United States Navy SEALS. They use LED photomodulation therapy mainly for muscle and wound healing. LED photomodulation therapy is a type of light therapy. Light therapy is a well-established procedure. It has been used for more than 100 years with extensive research to support and understand the knowledge about this therapy. Many studies were done on the uses, advantages, disadvantages, complications, and how to use LED photomodulation therapy. LED phototherapy is an option for you if you have any physical appearance or beauty related issues.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is also known as Low-Level Laser Therapy is an aesthetic procedure inspired by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) did research on photosynthesis with the use of Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy. Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is now widely used and available in the aesthetic field. It is proven to manage and treat many beauty related problems such as wrinkly skin.
The use of LED photomodulation therapy in the aesthetic field is well supported by data and evidence from multiple studies. You should not hesitate or be afraid of going for this procedure. One of the uses of LED photomodulation therapy in the aesthetic field is to treat skin conditions. We have holes on our skin which is known as pores. Pores are where our hair follicles and oil glands are located. Pores size is determined by our genetics made up. Some people have small pores, and some have bigger pores. Pores can get clogged 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 act 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:
- 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 results from LED photomodulation therapy varies from one person to another. Multiple factors will affect the overall result. The factors are skin colour, diet, physical well-being, age, and lifestyle. 8-15 sessions per week are required for the best outcome, but that is not a must. LED photomodulation therapy is also used to 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.
