One of the interesting features of our Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation Home Device is LED technology. Light Emitting Diode, or LED for short, is a technology that NASA developed during its experiments on growing plant life in space for space shuttle missions. After that, there were experiments with LED treatments for healing wounds that gave good results, thus confirming that light waves from the visible spectrum of a certain wavelength can have a positive effect on certain biochemical processes of the human body.
Developing further, LED technology entered our lives and became recognizable because of the variety of light bulbs. We all know that LEDs last much longer than ordinary light bulbs and that they use much less energy, so it’s no wonder that they’re taking over the illumination of our living areas.
Of course, the research on LEDs and their impact on the human body never stopped, primarily concerning the ways they can affect the skin. The beauty industry is always searching for new methods to help counter the effects of aging and quickly seized the opportunity to research and develop LED technology in that direction. Many studies and testing conducted in that field confirm that LED therapy can yield demonstrable results in the continuing struggle for the perfect complexion and youthful appearance of our skin.
That is how the first cosmetic treatment devices came to be, and they suddenly became a staple of all specialized clinics and big chain beauty parlors. The use of LED therapy in a cosmetics treatment has numerous advantages. First, it’s completely painless and has no recovery time (no redness or other changes that would require you to stay at home for a time). Second, it can be used across all age groups without side-effects. And third, it is easy to use, and can easily be deployed at home. This last quality is the reason why the market has recently been flooded with small, portable home-use devices that have implemented LED technology. One of the most popular ones is the Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation Home Device.
This was a brief overview of LED technology, and now we’ll try to explain how it works when applied in cosmetic treatments. Light energy of a certain wavelength applied to our skin turns into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) in the subcutaneous layers of our skin cells. That, simply put, is the “fuel” that our cells use as their energy source. In our case, fibroblast cells are the most significant, located in the dermis layer. With increased levels of ATP, these cells can once again work at full capacity, which leads to increased collagen and elastin production. Collagen gives the skin its firmness and suppleness, while elastin provides it with elasticity. All this results in the tightening of loose skin, an increase in smoothness and alleviation of fine lines and wrinkles, an improvement of complexion giving an overall impression of rejuvenated skin.
Of course, this was only a simple outline of the processes that occur in our bodies when they are absorbing light energy, meant to be approachable and easy to understand. In any case, the consensus is that LED technology has much to offer across many disciplines, including the beauty industry, and it has an excellent representative in our very own Radio Frequency Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation Home Device.
