We get scars after our body has healed a significant wound. They’re usually made of fibrous tissue that’s thicker and harder than the rest of the surrounding skin. And they can be unsightly. But recent advancements show that LED light helps scarring. Break down, shrink and minimise the look of scars by engaging your skin healing factors. We’ll explain how it works in this 5-minute read.
How to engage skin healing
Red and infra-red light is the best way to stimulate skin healing. Infra-red stimulates the ‘wound healing cells' in the skin. This causes fresh skin to form, and the red light can help to even out your skin tone.
They both boost circulation which helps get nutrients to the skin around the scar, improving the look and condition of the area. And, since you can do these treatments at home now, they are more affordable than earlier clinical low-level laser light therapy - pioneering healing skincare for the elderly and burn victims.
