Looking At The Bright Side Of Photodynamic Light

We all have a love-hate relationship with light but photodynamic light therapy helps to address skin issues as well as aid skin rejuvenation.

Too much sunlight accelerates ageing and you risk getting skin cancer. Too little, we look like Dracula’s bride. Fair may be nice but we certainly do not want to look sickly pale! But light can be your friend if you use it right.

Photodynamic light therapy is the therapeutic use of low-level incident light energy to address skin issues as well as aid skin rejuvenation. It works by shining deep penetrating light emitting diode (LED) light on the face which penetrates the skin cells to heighten their internal functions.

Photodynamic Red Light
A red photodynamic light is used for firming, skin rejuvenation, and for addressing pigmentation issues.

 

Doctors use different wavelengths (in nanometers or nm) of photodynamic therapeutic light on the patient’s face to achieve different results. For instance, a red photodynamic light (at 633nm) is used for firming, skin rejuvenation, anti-ageing, and for addressing pigmentation issues. A blue light (at 415nm) is used for treating oily skin and acne.

This painless, non-invasive, and no downtime treatment can be used as a standalone therapy or together with a complementary medical treatment to achieve optimal results. At Halley Medical Aesthetics , for instance, this US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved treatment is combined with an ECO2 mask. Depending on the wavelength used, this combined treatment can help to brighten and even out skin tone, firm skin, tighten pores, lighten scars, reduce oil production, and address acne problems.
