Yes, LED Facial Treatments Do Work (But Not In A Flash)
The Huffington Post CA edition just published an interesting article regarding the benefits of natural light sources. The article discusses how light therapy works and its benefits to the skin.
Dr. R. Glen Calderhead, one of the world’s leading experts in phototherapy and photosurgery, seems to think so. In a recently published study, he states that “low-level light therapy (LLLT) with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is emerging from the mists of black magic as a solid medico-scientific modality, with a substantial buildup of corroborative bodies of evidence for its efficacy and elucidation of the modes of action. Reports are appearing from many different specialties; however, of particular interest to plastic surgeons treating the aging face is the proven action of LED-LLLT on skin cells in both the epidermis and dermis and enhanced blood flow. Thus, LED-LLLT is a safe and effective stand-alone therapy for patients who are prepared to wait until the final effect is perceived.
