Use Light Therapy at Naples Medspa to Rejuvenate Skin, Treat Specific Skin Conditions
Doctors and dermatologists have long known that certain skin conditions can be treated by exposure in moderation to rays from the sun or sun lamps. For example, doctors have recommended moderate sun and/or sun lamp exposure for decades as a control treatment for those afflicted with psoriasis.
Medical understanding about how different light wavelengths reacts with skin has significantly advanced in recent years, and the FDA has approved targeted light therapy that uses specific wavelengths to address numerous medical and cosmetic dermatological issues. Naples, Florida-based Tru Glō Medspa is proud to offer this innovative treatment to its clients and invites you to read on to learn more about the many ways light wave therapy can effectively help clear up specific skin conditions, repair damaged and aging skin, and stimulate fresh, new skin growth.
Light Therapy Regenerates Cells, Boosts Collagen and Elastin
Also known as “phototherapy” and “light-emitting diode (LED) therapy, light therapy works in a variety of ways depending upon the wavelength and is considered safer than old-school therapies that relied on the sun or sunlamps, as the LED wavelengths do not contain harmful ultraviolet light. This also allows for the delivery of more concentrated doses of the therapeutic LED wavelengths for deeper penetration and effectiveness, while also making light therapy safe for use on all skin areas.
Light therapy stimulates skin tissue at the cellular level, which encourages the body’s natural cell-regeneration system and boosts the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Not only does this help speed the repair of damaged skin but gives your skin a more youthful and radiant appearance. Certain wavelengths can also subdue oil production from overactive sebaceous glands and kill bacteria within the skin and pores, all of which can help reduce acne and pimple formation.
Overall, light therapy has proven effective for treating:
- Stretch Marks
- Fine lines
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots
Which Light Therapy is Right for You?
Tru Glō Medspa offers the two most popular light therapies available—red light therapy and blue light therapy. Red light therapy is primarily used for skin regeneration and is thus especially targeted for reducing wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, cellulite, stretch marks, and age spots. As a rejuvenator, red light therapy helps improve blood flow and reduce inflammation, which also helps promote brighter, healthier-looking skin.
With its impact on the oil-producing glands and bacteria, blue light therapy is used more for targeting specific skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. With anti-inflammatory properties, blue light therapy can also help decrease the look of scarring and helps enhance the overall healing of damaged skin.
Because the two different light therapies can complement each other, they are often used together. In fact, some skin conditions are more effectively treated with a combination light therapy dose. Light therapy is also used in conjunction with Tru Glō Medspa’s HydraFacial MD®, as a means of supercharging this advanced facial treatment.
