The human body uses light rays for various purposes like the synthesis of Vitamin D. The effects of light therapy depend on the wavelength of light used which also determines the color of the light. Red light lower down the inflammation and promotes circulation, Blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria, and Infra-red accelerates skin recovery.
Scientists have found that cells exposed to near IR light from LED grow 150 to 200 percent faster than to the increased energy within the cells. Dr. Divya's Skin and Hair Solutions use GeoHaac LED, one of India's first and only specialized optimal lens array LED.
We use this device for standalone treatment like the reduction of pimples, instant glow, and seborrhea, and sometimes combine with other treatments such as microneedling RF and PRP, to accentuate results. Although visible improvement requires multiple treatment sessions.
Specific wavelengths of blue color target the strain of bacteria which is responsible for causing acne to many people (not effective for cystic acne, blackheads or whiteheads/milia). The lazer light causes the development of oxygen radicals that kill P.acnes bacteria without damaging healthy skin. As opposed to topical treatments, LED does not have negative side-effects (such as dryness or peeling), it is also pain-free, and has no downtime.
Infrared therapy uses relatively long wavelengths which can penetrate the skin deep i.e. 1 - 1.5 inches stimulates the activity of fibroblasts, which are responsible for making the proteins collagen and elastin (which are responsible for supporting the skin and giving it elasticity).
Replenishing these proteins helps smooth out wrinkles. It is important to remember results are achieved with consistent, multiple treatments, and should be used as a complementary treatment to a good skin-care routine, including daily use of good quality sunscreen. At DSHS, please ask for the first 'No antibiotic, no chemical treatment for acne' in Whitefield and Marathahalli to reduce pimples and produce an instant glow. A new era of minimal intervention and maximum results is dawned upon at our very DSHS Centre in Whitefield.
