The treatment of skin imperfections by LED light therapy, also called LLLT (Low level laser therapy), is the revolutionary treatment of the beginning of the 21st century. Scientifically proven light therapy makes it possible to treat many ailments of the body in total harmony with it.
With this guide, you will understand how LED light therapy brings many benefits to the skin safely.
Introduction to photobiomodulation therapy
Photobiomodulation, also called LLLT, is the mecanism on which light therapy hinges on to heal skin problems.
This treatment became prominent in the early 2000s in many beauty institutes. Now, you can benefit from this treatment at home and at a lower price.
Here, we will explain how photobiomodulation came about, what it is specifically, its different areas of application, mainly its treatment of skin issues.
In the 90’s, red light was used by NASA to grow plants in space. The LED lamps used was ten times brighter than the sun. Thus, it accelerated the cellular production of the plants and the photosynthesis process.
Photobiomodulation was then tested on human skin and it was shown that light can also stimulate the production of skin cells. This discovery led to the use of LEDs to treat skin damage, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, age spots, wrinkles, skin cancer and other skin problems.
Photobiomodulation uses different light wavelengths to penetrate the skin and be absorbed at a depth of 5/16 Inch. This means that it can potentially reach all the layers of the skin, the blood vessels and the lymphatic system. With this degree of penetration, light can have a therapeutic impact on our cells and metabolic processes. Once absorbed by our body, light’s energy is converted into cell energy.
This conversion initiates a series of metabolic events like the formation of new capillaries, the stimulation of the production of collagen and the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP’s primary function is to supply usable energy to our cells.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is our body’s fuel for energy; the more energy we have, the more our body can use that energy to perform its functions effectively – such as rejuvenation and repair processes.
By stimulating the internal functions of the skin from the outside, it can achieve visible long-term results. Light therapy therefore stimulates the regenerative abilities of the body and is thus a completely natural treatment.
The different wavelengths and colors offer different benefits to the skin. For example, red light has rejuvenating effects while blue light targets and kills acne-causing bacteria.
Unlike many other types of treatments, photobiomodulation (LLLT) is completely safe, non-invasive, chemical-free and has no harmful side effects.
It simply exploits the benefits of light by delivering its energy to a higher degree than the sun, without harmful UV rays. It is a very relaxing and energizing experience that is quickly becoming a revolutionary treatment in many medical specialties due to its many benefits.
Acne light therapy
Acne is a disease that causes the majority of people to suffer psychologically because of the physical alteration it causes.
Scientifically proven, the blue light acne treatment revolutionizes the field with its effectiveness and softness and offers a great solution for people suffering from acne.
Here we will explain the causes of acne and how light therapy can reduce acne, rosacea and scars.
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, affecting 85% of adolescents and up to half of adults over the age of 25.
It forms when the sebaceous glands of the skin produce excess oil that combines with skin cells and plugs the pores. Bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) that live on the skin can also get into blocked pores. These bacteria swell clogged pores causing acne.
The body’s response causes inflammation and skin redness, which we associate with acne.
The action mechanism of blue light
The bacterium responsible for acne has a weak link in its metabolism – a chemical called porphyrin.
This chemical is sensitive to blue light, which energizes it, and causes the destruction of the bacterial cell without harming the skin.
Not only does blue light eliminate existing acne pimples, it also prevents acne flares before they happen. In only a few minutes a day, you will be on your way to a clearer, smoother and radiant skin.
Blue light acne treatment is a completely natural treatment with no side effects since it does not use ultraviolets (UV).
Cells exposed to red light can absorb its energy to stimulate the skin’s natural healing processes, eliminating the symptoms of rosacea without causing irritation or any other adverse effects.
It stimulates the production of collagen making the skin more resistant. It is therefore a very effective treatment for rosacea because it reduces redness associated with broken or weak capillaries.
Red light helps reduce redness, swelling, itching, dryness, burning, and even small bumps from the couperose.
To treat rosacea, we recommend the purple light which combines the benefits of red and blue colors.
Exposure to red light helps stimulate the skin layers to produce more collagen, a fibrous protein that brings shape and firmness to the skin. As the collagen is formed, the severe marks are reduced.
By promoting skin cell renewal, it can improve the appearance of the skin and repairs scars.
As you can see, light therapy has demonstrated its ability to effectively reduce the symptoms of acne.
The colors most used to different forms of acne are blue and purple.
Blue LED light should therefore be used to treat acne. Red light is an effective treatment for redness and scars.
Purple light combines the benefits of the two colors. It is highly recommended if you suffer from acne, redness or scars.
You can choose between doing a 20-minute purple light session or 1 session for each color. The choice is yours.
We recommend 20-minute sessions every day for a month. Then, 1 to 2 sessions per week to maintain the benefits of light therapy.
Our 3 LED masks have these 3 colors as well as 3 other colors to offer you 6 customized treatments.
Anti aging light therapy
Your face is one of the first parts of your body that people notice and it is also the area most vulnerable to the effects of aging.
LED light therapy is a new treatment for skin rejuvenation that fights the signs of aging naturally and without any side effects.
Our anti-aging devices use the benefits of light therapy to give you a younger looking face.
As you get older, the production rate of collagen and elastin – the pillars of healthy skin – slows down.
Collagen is an amino acid and the most abundant protein in our body. Its function is to give elasticity to our skin, strength to the hair, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything in place. While collagen is beneficial to the whole body, it is especially beneficial to the skin. As it ages, the epidermis (the outer layer of skin) becomes thinner and loses its elasticity through a process called elastosis.
This is caused by the breakdown of collagen fibres in the skin. This rupture can be greatly accelerated by UV damage, neglect, lifestyle (high caffeine consumption, etc.) and medication use. Age, stress and lifestyle are all causes of this phenomenon.

Exposure to red light from the light therapy mask produces a biochemical effect in cells that strengthens the mitochondria. Mitochondria is the central actor of the cell – that’s where the energy of the cell is created. This energy-bearing molecule, located in the cells of all living beings, is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
By increasing mitochondria activity through red light, a cell can produce more ATP. With more energy, cells can function more efficiently, rejuvenate and repair skin damage.
Cells, energized by exposure to red LED light, trigger the activity of fibroblasts producing collagen and thus stimulate the natural healing of the skin and the process of facial rejuvenation.
Red light therapy is completely natural and without side effects since it does not use any ultraviolets (UV).
Sagging skin lifting
Restored skin elasticity
Skin texture reconstitution
As you can see, light therapy has demonstrated its ability to reduce the signs of aging.
We therefore recommend red light for anti aging.
Celebrities love this innovative treatment and do not hesitate to show it on social networks.
Victoria Beckham, Kim Kardashian, Linda Evangelista and many others use LED light therapy for its temporary “facelift” effect, ideal before an appearance on the red carpet.
Its deep and lasting effect makes it the ideal beauty partner of both celebrities and women who choose to take care of their face in their everyday lives.
Red light is therefore recommended to combat the effects of skin aging. It gives the skin a true rebirth and gives your face a renewed tone and elasticity.
You can observe the results from the first session with softer skin to the touch. The majority of benefits will be observed after approximately one month of use.
LED photorejuvenation is an anti-wrinkle treatment that requires perseverance.
We offer 3 LED masks with 6 colors each.
The benefits of light therapy on the skin are scientifically proven.
From eczema to wrinkles, acne and rosacea, it offers a lot of solutions.
For you, we have collected various studies that show the many benefits of light therapy on the skin.
An essential aspect of light therapy is that different colors trigger different reactions below the epidermis and penetrate the skin at different depths.
Red has a wavelength between 600nm and 700nm and is mainly used for its anti aging benefits thanks to its ability to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
Our anti aging devices fully exploits these benefits to give you a younger face. You can also use our face rejuvenation devices which have an extension for the neck for a better overall result.
Blue light is usually used to kill the bacteria that cause acne, providing effective treatment for comedones and pimples. A lot of research has demonstrated the ability of blue light to reduce acne.
It is therefore a considerable asset since it is effective and very soft on the skin.
Green has proven its ability to reduce melasma and other skin discoloration problems.
Green light penetrates the skin’s sublayers by targeting melanocytes to reduce melanin stimulation which causes dark spots on the skin. With less melanin reaching the skin surface, hyperpigmentation or discolorations gradually disappear.
The purple light combines the red and blue lights. It eliminates acne-causing bacteria while reducing facial inflammation and reducing the appearance of acne-related scars. It is therefore highly recommended for people with acne and redness.

Yellow has characteristics quite close to red light for the skin. More specifically, it is effective in treating cutrosis and redness from sun exposure and it stimulates blood circulation.
Cyan is the combination of blue and green lights. It removes acne and pigment stains simultaneously.
Our three masks have a sufficient number of LEDs to have a real impact on your skin if used regularly.
The number of LEDs impacts the efficiency of a mask only to a certain point. It is the regular use of the mask that will determine its effectiveness.
