Edit: Since making this post last summer, at home LED treatments have exploded! At the end of the article I've included some recomendations of products you can use on your own.
LED technology is something you’re probably very used to seeing - but did you know it can be used as a light activated facial rejuvenation treatment? The lights are energy producing and stimulate collagen synthesis in the skin. Different colors produce different types of cellular results. The most common treatments for skin care are sun damaged skin, mild to moderate acne and plumping of loose skin. LED therapy is also a proven treatment for pain reduction, wound healing and even shown to help aid in tumor reductions!
At Volta I employ three different colored lights:
Red LED increases collagen production which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth the overall texture of the skin. It stimulates lymph activity which, when functioning properly, delivers more nutrients to the skin.
Blue LED kills the specific bacteria that causes most breakouts. Because LED is non irritating this is a great treatment for overly irritated acne skin.
Green LED disperses melanin which helps reduce the appearance of age spots and sun spots - this is the light I find myself using the most as this is generally the hardest skin problem to treat.
Edit January 2017
Here are three different LED devises you can use at home. The technology works the same as above, but I've included three different price points and ways of application.
