From Smoother-looking Skin to Easing Aches and Pains, the Surprising Benefits of Light Therapy
Light therapy is one of the hottest trends in skin care and wellness. The treatments typically involve exposure to certain wavelengths of light, which can affect everything from your skin to your mood.
One of the most popular treatments is the LED light facial, which a slew of celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Kelly Rowland and Kristen Bell use to improve and smooth their complexion, including reducing brown spots and pimple breakouts.
Michele Farber of Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City says the treatment offers several skin care benefits. “The benefits depends on the light used,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “Common wavelengths include blue light, which helps to reduce bacteria from acne, and red light, which helps to even out pigment, stimulate collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.”
