How Effective is LED Light Therapy for Wrinkles?

Since the beginning of skin care commercials and print ads, anyone with skin was bombarded with messages from over-the-counter brands that have lead them to believe that the only way to reduce fine lines and wrinkles was with their anti-wrinkle cream. That same message is being circulated except with Instagram Stories and automated emails.

While some choose to believe over-the-counter company’s anti-wrinkle creams are 100% effective, the Mayo clinic suggests otherwise. “Over-the-counter (nonprescription) wrinkle creams aren’t classified as drugs, they’re not required to undergo scientific research to prove their effectiveness.” Further exploration of this claim, one study supports that the efficacy and ingredients of these anti-aging creams lacks rigorous testing in comparison to their anti-aging claims.

That leaves room for imagination. Is the cream 2%, 55%, or 99% effective? These over-the-counter anti-wrinkle creams hardly ever specify how effective their product is. Without any fancy percentages, how can these creams be trusted to reduce wrinkles?

Sure these creams can work, but their “effectiveness” is no match for LED light therapy for wrinkles. Since our devices are FDA cleared, we performed a clinic study with our anti-aging devices and found that 97% of users experienced a reduction of wrinkles.

You read that right, 97% of users saw improvement (or lack there of) in their wrinkles. Here’s what came out of the clinical trial aside from reduced wrinkles:

  • Minimized skin discoloration and age spots
  • Enhanced complexion
  • Reduced puffy eyes
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Stimulated collage and elastin to promote youthful looking skin

Can your over-the-counter anti-wrinkle cream do that? In 12 weeks, LED light therapy will stimulate your collagen to give your appearance a reduced fine line and wrinkle-free look. Put our devices to the test and shop our anti-aging line and toss out those false-promised creams. Your reduced wrinkled skin can thank us later.

How LED Light Therapy Works for Anti-Aging

How Light Therapy Works For Anti-Aging

One of the biggest challenges potential reVive Light Therapy customers face is finding information about how light therapy works. How can a consumer make an informed decision about which product to buy?

Even though light therapy isn’t a new phenomenon (developed decades ago by NASA research), skincare consumers may not be aware of this type of skin care technology, and some people find light therapy to be intimidating.

Numerous studies prove light therapy’s effectiveness for acne treatment, pain relief, and wrinkle reduction, but they don’t always explain how light therapy works.

By the end of this post you will understand the layers of the skin, how light therapy positively impacts layers of skin, and what kind of results to expect.

Layers of Skin - Anti-Aging

Layers of the skin

In the nifty cross section above, there are three primary layers of skin: epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. These layers protect the body from the elements all while maintaining specific roles:

Epidermis

Known as the outermost layer of skin, the Epidermis has three main duties:

  • Skin cell production
  • Skin color
    • Epidermis produces melanin, which determines skin color
  • Protective outer layer that helps keep body healthy

Dermis

Thickest layer of skin which holds many responsibilities:

  • Sweat production
  • Transmitting sensations of touch
  • Hair growth
  • Oil production
    • Hi, acne!
  • Provides bloodflow to skin

Hypodermis

The bottom layer of skin, also referred to as the subcutaneous fat layer. The hypodermis keeps the skin functioning properly by:

  • Connecting tissue to muscle and bone
  • Guiding blood vessels and nerve cells to the rest of the body
  • Helping to regulate body temperature
  • Storing fat

It’s crazy to think that three small layers of the skin work synergistically to keep the body safe and functioning. By a person’s mid twenties, the dermis begins to thin out, and production of collagen and elastin gradually decreases. The dermis has a harder time sustaining moisture to the epidermis and the hypodermis begins to lose fat. When the hypodermis is no longer a solid foundation to the dermis and epidermis, the skin starts to sag. Did someone say “wrinkles?”

How light therapy impacts layers of skin

Aging skin is inevitable. But how the skin is treated can either speed up or delay the progression of wrinkles.

From Botox® to creams and acids, there are several anti-aging treatment options—most of which are pricey and can take months to bring minor improvements without addressing the root of the problem: sluggish production of collagen and elastin mixed with poor circulation.

Bottom line: injections or cream don’t typically stimulate collagen and elastin production. LED light therapy is the key to rejuvenating skin by successfully reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

LED light therapy is medically proven to not only delay progression of wrinkles, but to reverse existing wrinkles.

Our LED anti-aging devices are comprised of three light spectrums, each responsible for a different anti-aging properties. Each layer of skin responds differently to each spectrum.

  • Infrared (IR) light
    • Penetrating deepest (30-40 mm) into the dermis, infrared light stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin.
    • Collagen is the “glue” that holds skin cells together and plumps the skin. Where collagen growth is encouraged, wrinkles are eliminated and damaged tissues are repaired or replaced.
    • Elastin provides elasticity—or snappiness—that causes skin to bounce back to its normal shape. As people age, lower levels of elastin cause the skin to sag.
    • Infrared light also stimulates the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP provides energy to cells.
  • Red light
    • Penetrating 8-10mm into the skin, red light increases circulation to promote a more vibrant, youthful complexion.
    • Helps dermis retain moisture to ward off wrinkles.
  • Amber light
    • Penetrates into the skin at a shallow level, which promotes surface healing of skin conditions like sunburns and rosacea.
    • Reduces the appearance of redness, swelling, and inflammation.
    • Flushes waste from skin to promote a healthier lymphatic flow and encourage cellular growth.

What to expect while using anti-aging light therapy

Using light therapy consistently will provide noticeable anti-aging results. Results vary depending upon wrinkle severity and lifestyle choices. After 12 weeks of diligent use, customers reported:

  • Minimized skin discoloration and age spots
  • Enhanced complexion
  • Reduced puffy eyes
  • Improved skin tone and smoother texture

97% of users participating in a clinical study experienced a reduction in wrinkles. Science at work!

LED light therapy doesn’t have to be intimidating.

Other anti-aging treatments may have left you disappointed, but we are confident LED light therapy will make a difference for you. With diligence and commitment, fine lines and wrinkles can be replaced with plump, firm, more youthful-looking skin.

Our Essentials Collection Wrinkle Reduction device is great for dipping toes into the water, but if diving in is more the speed, our Full-Face Beauty Panel will cover the entire face in a single treatment and won’t disappoint.

Dangers of LED Light Therapy

There are certain things you can overdo in life. LED light therapy isn’t one of them.

But there are some things you should be aware of.

When it comes to skin care, the less-is-more approach seems to be the common theme. However, there is one skin care treatment that responds well to multiple daily usage. Enter: reVive Light Therapy. You might think over using LED light therapies would set you back in your #skingoals but in reality, using it more than once a day will get you the results you want.

If you were to consistently over wash your face, you’d be stripping your skin of natural oils, drying out faster, and… *gasp* creating more reasons for your skin to breakout.

But when using reVive Light Therapy devices, you’re not harming your skin’s surface. Instead, the epidermis is stimulated to generate cellular repair and increased blood circulation. In other words, the LED lights are helping your skin achieve a more vibrant, youthful, and even complexion. Who wouldn’t want that?

So, no, there is no danger to using light therapy. However, keep these tips in mind:

  • For those with a fair complexion, skin may be sensitive around LED lights, although it does not happen often. We encourage those with this skin type to run a baseline test for no more than three minutes. If there is no reaction for 24 hours, we recommend adjusting the treatment time to accommodate the type of skin.
  • For cases of extreme acne, blue LED light therapy treatment can be used often, including morning + evening routines. As long as there is no irritation resulting redness (again, not a regular occurrence), acne sufferers can even use the device multiple times throughout the day.
  • Maintenance and consistency are key when treating acne or reducing wrinkles. This means using your device daily for weeks for the best results.
  • We strongly suggest taking pictures of your acne or wrinkles to see your progress. Take photos on Day 1, Week 1, Week 5, Week 10. You will be amazed by how much has changed. reVive Light Therapy works from the inside out, is noninvasive, and is a gradual process.

It takes years to develop acne and wrinkles. Our devices are designed to help you eradicate these imperfections in weeks. Even with a consistent treatment schedule you do not have to worry about dangers of light therapy, and we are confident you will see results that other cosmetic products have overpromised but underdelivered on. See our full line of products here.

Can Red/Infrared LED Light Therapy Fade Stretch Marks?

Can LED Light Therapy Fade Stretch Marks?

Short answer: Red/Infrared (IR) LED light therapy is not meant to treat or fade stretch marks.

Hey, remember when you were just a little tiny nugget of a human and then you grew? And grew, and grew, and gr….
You may have grown so fast that your skin wasn’t ready for the changes and left you with stretch marks. If you’re scrambling to find the magical cure on how to get rid of your stretch marks, you might not like what you’re about to read.

Sorry folks, LED light therapy cannot fade stretch marks.

While some believe that Red LED light therapy is the one-stop-shop for perfect skin, it just can’t repair skin that has been stretched to its limit. Red LED light therapy penetrates deep within the skin’s layers to stimulate cellular repair and increase circulation to promote vibrant, healthy looking skin. The light is ultimately smoothing line lines and wrinkles.

Imagine it this way. Have you ever held an old rubber band? Have you ever tried to make that rubber band become tight and brand new again? How successful were you? Not to sound pessimistic, but you probably failed. BIG TIME.

If you’re trying to use Red LED light therapy on stretch marks, it would be a huge waste of time, and we’re not into wasting your time. Instead, we suggest reaching out to your doctor on better methods of fading your stretch marks. But until then, love the skin you’re in because honey, you rock it.

An Open Letter to Skin

An Open Letter to Skin

quotation-mark

They say you should love the skin you’re in.

I am covered in you. You’ve been with me since the beginning of my time. We’ve felt fresh rain drops, we’ve experienced uncomfortable peeling, we grew from pea size to full grown adult, we have been cut, scraped, and bled. We have felt the pain from needles and burns but also felt a loving touch and kisses. We have been through everything together.

To the skin I call “home,” I have been a terrible tenet. I’ve picked, pulled, popped, antagonized, and irritated you. I’ve disrespected you and didn’t think twice. From leaving you unprotected and vulnerable in the sun to neglecting moisturizers, I feel guilty.

As I look back at photos of us, I get a sudden nostalgia. The supple yet firm, clear, undamaged glow is something I relentlessly search for at the bottom of a product bottle; I wish instead I had tended to your needs since day one.

Life is about moving forward. As badly as I wish to reverse my careless ways, I must press on with thoughtful decisions with you in mind.

I only get one you. I will learn ways to keep you healthy. Above all, I will be kind to you. Skin, I see and feel you constantly. It’s time for me to start demonstrating my appreciation for you. I vow to put in the work to see you thrive for the years to come.

Here’s to our newfound journey: the skin project.

LED light therapy is the first step I will take to make sure you’re feeling better than ever. I’ve seen the results; light therapy is medically proven and I know what it can do for us. Red, Amber, and Infrared LED lights will erase the times we spent outside without UV protection. Blue LED lights will destroy the bad bacteria burrowed in your glands to reveal a clearer you. In addition to the lights, I vow to apply moisturizer, sun block, and get enough rest so that you may repair and regenerate healthy cells for a more radiant you. I know this will take time. Nothing is overnight.

But one thing is for sure. I love the skin I’m in, and I will do everything in my power to keep you healthy.
