What Is LED?
LED or light emitting diodes make use of low intensity light waves to correct skin flaws and texture through a safe way. The light waves are released and adequately absorbed by the receptors, present on the skin cells. However, depending upon the kind of skin error, light of specific spectrum is used to treat the disorder.
For instance, light of certain spectrum is used to treat ageing and fine lines, which is completely different from the spectrum of light used to deal with acne or sun burns. In case of ageing or fine lines issue, the light waves are absorbed by the skin, to boost the collagen production, which in turn helps in refining the skin texture. The skin pores are closed and tightened, revealing a smoother and even toned skin.
Types Of LED
Depending upon the spectrum of light waves, LED is distinguished into various kinds. Let’s take a sneak peek into the three popular kind of segregation.

The red light will boost collagen production and increase the blood circulation into the skin cells, thereby improving both elasticity and firmness.In addition to this, the skin cells get rejuvenated and get back on their natural growth track, therefore helping in skin rejuvenation.
This kind of light is more suited to treat skin, which is affected with acne. The light spectrum, usually of 405-420 nm strength is used on the skin, to destroy the bacteria causing acne.Sometimes, both a combination of blue and red light is used on acne prone skin to get rid of acne and unravel a fresher and smoother skin.
This kind of light is used to treat skin with hyper-pigmentation or skin infested with brown or ageing or acne spots. This light is absorbed by the skin, to facilitate melanin production into the skin, which in turn helps in removing brown spots, freckles, sun burn, hyper pigmentation and other acne related spots. It simultaneously aids in refining the skin complexion as well.
