LED Light Therapy for Collagen Production
We don’t know anyone who wouldn’t like a little more collagen to help fill in those fine lines and under eye wrinkles, but did you know that collagen plays a much larger role in how your body functions?
Collagen is defined as a protein that your body naturally makes. It actually makes up almost a third of all the protein in our bodies and is an essential component for healthy joints. Although most of us think of collagen as the cure to getting rid of all those under eye wrinkles and laugh lines. Think of collagen as the glue that holds together our muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, organs and skin.
According to WebMD, there are 16 different types of collagen in our bodies, but most is type I, II, or III and each one has a different job to do. Type I builds skin, bones, tendons, and ligaments. Type II helps make cartilage, the flexible tissues between bones and in our ears and nose. And Type III helps create muscles and blood vessels. As we age, our bodies make less collagen. This is why we have those stiff joints or weak muscles.
The use of red light therapy for increasing collagen production is highly effective as it stimulates fibroblast growth factors. The increase in ATP, pro-collagen and collagen synthesis and increased blood flow can dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma SERIES of LED red and infrared light therapy products to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body's natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.
