LED PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY
LED photodynamic therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that is used to treat acne, sun damage, wounds and other skin problems. This treatment involves the use of varying wavelengths of light in order to stimulate the skin's natural healing processes to repair the skin.
The red light helps improve scarring and signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, by acting on fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are skin cells that are responsible for collagen production. Red light also helps reduce inflammation. Sometimes LED lights are used with a photosensitive drug called 5-aminolevulinic acid. This drug is applied to the skin and is used in combination with LED light.
LED photodynamic therapy can also be used for wound healing. Red light stimulates collagen and reduces redness, swelling and bruising while speeding up the healing process. Red light also helps stimulate hair growth for people who are experiencing hair loss.
