LED light therapy is one of the most proven skin solutions for stimulating collagen and elasticity, and reducing inflammation and acne. The Lightwave Allure Activate handheld device is one of the most powerful and effective LED light therapy at-home solutions.
Studies show that low-level light therapy (LLLT) stimulates collagen production. “Studies reported an increase in production of pro-collagen, collagen, and basic fibroblast growth factors (bFGF).”
In addition to speeding up the healing process, it might help the skin protect itself from the sun. “Infrared (IR) exposure might have protective effects against skin damage caused by UV rays mainly by triggering protective/repair responses.” And it can help correct existing UV damage.
LLLT also triggers ATP production. Increased ATP production can speed up the production of collagen, DNA, RNA and other materials essential to the healing process.
It provides pain relief. “According to more than 4000 laboratory and clinical studies, LLLT has a positive effect on acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.”
