COLLAGEN RED LIGHT THERAPY

WHAT IS COLLAGEN ?

Collagen is the magic skin component that helps maintain elasticity and firmness of the skin. After the age of 25 collagen production in the skin gradually decreases, leaving us with wrinkles and lines around the face and neckline.

HOW RED LIGHT WORKS ?

Originally developed by the NASA to heal wounds, Red Light Therapy was found to promote and speed up skin regeneration.

The heat and light boost circulation, bringing more blood and nutrients to the area. It also instigates the release of chemical messengers called cytokines. As more cytokines are released, collagen producing cells (called fibroblasts) leap into action. If healing is required, then the skin will heal. If it is already healthy, you will get a plumping effect from the extra collagen created. Red light is able to penetrate the skin to a depth of 8 to 10 mm, encouraging the cells to naturally stimulate the  production of collagen and elastin.

This treatment is non invasive and “helps” your skin cells to build more collagen and elastine fibers, which are responsible for every aspect of your skin rejuvenation and healing. The red light is energing and repairing damaged cells, stimulating collagen and elastin and giving the skin back its youthful look.
