LED – Light Emitting Diodes.
PDT – Photodynamic Therapy is the Key in what LEDelux is.
LED is a non-invasive and painless treatment for Acne, Sun damage, Wounds and other Skin Problems. It can even be used to treat Vitiligo, Sinus and Joint pain. The LEDelux is a mastery of technological advancements and trusted by Doctors, Dermatologist, Aestheticians, Clinics, Spas and Skin Specialists. LED lights are trusted, and have been devised over long periods of time. These lights have been used since the 1960s when Nick Holonyak first discovered them. In this article, LEDelux science is to be dissected through the timeline of LED’s process to becoming the Superior Technology, LEDelux in the Aesthetic Industry. From NASA’s research on Plant development to the Navy Seals healing wounded soldiers and understanding of LED’s importance is uncovered Medispa Solutions clinical results, and LEDelux Medical training information will give the reader an insight as to how LEDelux can be used in the Aesthetic industry for maximum CLIENT RESULTS.
Via wavelengths of light, LEDelux triggers the skin’s healing process. By looking further into the process of how the LEDelux works, we can get a better understanding of this. Wavelengths in the visible light spectrum correspond with different colors through LED Lights. This harmony penetrates skin at various depths. By adjusting wattage levels or/and the combination of colors/Infrared, the subject will encounter in the individual’s skin and its layers.
Light-emitting diodes- Is a semiconductor that produces light when an electric current runs through it. Inside the semiconductor material energy bands hold to the electrons and electron holes. The spacing of those bands are directly correlated to the energy of light particles. (Photons) Emitted by the LED determining wavelength and color. LEDelux affects the skin via a reversal of the mitochondria dysfunction. This is a condition that occurs when the mitochondria can’t effectively convert raw material into cellular fuel. This fuel is in a molecule known as Adenosine Triphosphate(ATP). A healthy skin produces plenty of ATP within each cell. ATP is a key element in cellular regeneration, and the ability to perform its specialized function. Some reasons cells perform poorly is due to clients’, emotional stress, genetics, chronic inflammation and environmental toxins that can lead to oxidative stress.
It is critical to have TGA / FDA / CE approved devices to know you are giving your clients quality treatments. It’s imperative to use Light-emitting diodes capable of; Producing the right power, At the right wavelength, with quality LED’s for treating the present condition. It must be stressed that the knowledge of different colors, and their importance is understood before LED therapy is used.
Navy Seal units have been known to use LED Light therapy when healing wounded Veteran soldiers. In a clinical trial conducted on 35 U.S veterans that were medically verified with chronic low back pain. Twenty-five out of thirty-five participants followed through with the clinical trials and for 7 days they followed their normal sleeping routine. This was followed by a 13 day period where participants received 1 hour of morning bright light treatment. participants didn’t report any side effects from the treatment. According to Burgess(2019), results of the trial on the U.S veterans suggested that the morning light treatment is a practical and acceptable treatment for those with chronic low back pain. An imperative discovery to modern science was uncovered, that by using LEDs for healing there can be great improvement in musculoskeletal injuries in the veteran soldiers. The clinical trial also found a beneficial correlation between Morning bright light therapy and physical/mental improvements. Not only can LED help in improving scarring but also psychologically. This conclusion is sound, though LEDelux is for Aesthetics use only. Improve scarring, getting rid of wrinkles/ shrinking, reducing activity in the sebaceous glands, improving hyperpigmentation and many types of benefits to the skin.
The discovery and initial use of LED was remarkably used for space exploration. This may come as a shock to Aestheticians but fear not. NASA constructed LED lights synthesis of plants in space. Unbeknownst to their surprise, the scientist’s lesion healed simultaneously. Which ultimately led to a discovery of skin healing through an accident.
Lighting science’s work with light-emitting diodes dates back to the early 2000s. Former NASA scientist and chief scientific officer Fred Maxik, worked under a Space Act Agreement at Bionetics as an expert on lighting systems. Lighting Science developed an extensive range of bulbs that reflected NASA research for human health and plant growth. For example, the GoodDay and GoodNight bulbs. According to Dr. Matthew Mickens'(2012), he discovered a significant physiological difference between both treatments, conducted as a test. Dr. Mickens test subject A and B were put under a red and blue LED treatment, as well as a treatment of broad spectrum white fluorescent lamps with green lights present. This monumental discovery of healing science has shown a breakthrough in modern technology in the Aesthetic Industry. Who knew space exploration would lead to healing wounds?

LED- is a semiconductor that produces light when an electric current runs through it. Inside the semiconductor material energy bands hold to the electrons and electron holes. The spacing of those bands are directly correlated to the energy of light particles. (Photons) Emitted by the LED determine the wavelength and color. LEDelux affects the skin via a reversal of the mitochondria dysfunction. This is a condition that occurs when the mitochondria can’t effectively convert raw material into cellular fuel.
This cellular fuel is in a molecule known as Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). A healthy skin produces a plethora of ATP within each cell. ATP is a key element in cellular regeneration, and the ability to perform their specialized function. Some reasons cells perform poorly is due to clients’ unhealthy lifestyle, emotional stress, genetics, chronic inflammation and environmental toxins that can lead to oxidative stress. It is critical to have TGA / FDA / CE approved devices to know you are giving your clients quality treatments. It’s imperative to use LEDs capable of; producing the right power, at the precise wavelength, with quality LED’s for treating the present condition. It should be emphasized that the knowledge of different colors, and their importance is understood before LED therapy is used.
RED LED LIGHT ‘630 nanometers’
Red light has potential to improve scarring, and signs of aging such as wrinkles. This is achieved through fibroblast cells in the Dermis, which are responsible for intercellular communication. Collagen is a protein in the skin, and it plays a role in skin healing. Red light also reduces skin inflammation.
Blue Led Light 400- 470 nm
Blue light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil – that oil is the breeding ground for pathogenic bacteria. This improves the benign flora of the skin, clearing up acne. (cutibacterium acne’s) inflammation. Individuals with acne will see an improvement in their symptoms from using blue LED therapy as long as it’s a quality LED such as LEDelux.
Yellow light 570- 590 nanometers
The yellow light goes 0.5 millimeters into the skin. This is a safer nanometer age for skins prone to hyperpigmentation.
