Light therapy, the story, so far…
The leading light therapy was developed in the UK after 12 years of extensive medical research. This research at the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research led to the production of a pure red light source that, when combined with a cream, would kill certain types of skin cancer cells.
During this work, scientists observed that the light on its own had a stimulating effect on cell and tissue regeneration which greatly improved the appearance of the skin. This observation has led to the development of the Light Therapy technology.
Light therapy is a relatively new technology based on using a narrowband of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs). The light technology works because cells within the body contain receptors that absorb light naturally.
When the body is exposed to light, these receptors absorb the light waves and kick start a cellular response. Different wavelengths of light will stimulate different cellular responses within the cell.
The red light acts to energise, rejuvenate and repair damaged skin and uneven skin tone, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It delivers a precise wavelength of visible red light that penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate fibroblast activity that naturally boosts the production of collagen (the protein responsible for plump, healthy skin).
