Give Clients a Healthy Glow with LED Light Therapy

Sponsored by Celluma Light Therapy

Inadequate collagen levels play a significant role in the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and joint pain. Collagen is the primary structural protein in our skin and connective tissue, literally holding our bodies together. But as we age, our bodies fail to produce collagen like when we were younger. Providing longevity and increasing collagen production are the bedrock of most treatments that target signs of aging. 

Your client might notice decreased elasticity in the skin and might complain about joint pain as their body resists moving as easily as it used to. It all traces back to lower collagen levels that lead to breakdowns in cartilage, which can cause inflammation, soreness, stiffness, and arthritis and can lead to a lengthier recovery time after physical activity. Other common signs of aging include:

  • Arthritis
  • Chronic joint and muscle pain
  • Inflammation
  • Keratosis
  • Melasma
  • Skin and tissue deterioration

Achieving a Glow with Boosted Collagen

Clients come to you to develop and maintain healthy collagen levels that give them a glowing complexion and firm skin. Boosted collagen levels also help maintain strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair and keep muscles, joints, and tendons in proper working order. When all these things work optimally, you have a picture of healthy aging.

But this picture isn’t possible without fibroblasts, cells that contribute to the formation of connective tissue and manufacture collagen proteins. The more healthy fibroblasts we have in our skin, the more healthy collagen fibers are made, and the better our collagen levels are.

Tackling Inadequate Collagen Levels with Light Therapy

Many clients today are looking for nontoxic and minimally invasive treatment options, and you probably incorporate many modalities in your practice that fit these criteria. You might already use topical retinoids and antioxidants and recommend sunscreen and moisturizers to keep skin protected and hydrated. Chemical peels and microdermabrasion can also be used to treat aging skin.

But there is a nontoxic and noninvasive modality you can immediately incorporate into your services that can help address inadequate collagen levels contributing to your client’s skin and joint pain. LED light therapy can be used on its own or combined with other treatments to help clients manage the impact of aging in a healthy way, from the inside out.

The solution that addresses a variety of aging concerns is the regular use of medical-grade light therapy. Clinical literature supports this; there are countless studies touting benefits for the body from regular use of light therapy. Light therapy gives our cells the boost of energy needed to upgrade collagen production through enhanced fibroblast stimulation. Light therapy is an ideal add-on following laser, peels, microneedling, microdermabrasion, injections, and other services. It allows for targeted treatment, leading to smoother, rejuvenated skin and improved tone and texture. These safe, proven wavelengths deliver light energy to tissue to help your clients heal naturally, starting from within.
