What Is The Science Behind Skin Ageing?
When you are young, the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin, stays smooth and free from blemishes. It serves as the best barrier from the sun rays and protects the skin from external injuries. Even at a younger age, the collagen makes the skin firm and provides the required elasticity. The Glycosaminoglycans or the GAGs keep the skin moist and also hydrated all the time. These elements are present in plenty when you are young.
As you age, the skin starts to show ageing lines due to both intrinsic and extrinsic ageing. The ‘intrinsic ageing happens naturally as the years pass and includes the loss of collagen by 1% every year after you cross the 20s. Even the amount of elastin and GAGs also decrease along with the ageing due to the reduced functioning of sweat glands and oil glands—all of these results in fragile skin and skin spots all over the skin.
On the other hand, the extrinsic factors happen due to the exposure to sun rays and the environmental damage pollutants and smoking. The presence of freckles, sun marks, lesions and skin cancer are signs of extrinsic skin damage. It contributes to the loss of collagen, GAGs and even elastin on the skin. Maintaining a healthy skincare routine, including a broad spectrum of sunscreen that protects the skin from harmful damage, is always necessary. All the damage that happens to the skin can be controlled by light therapy.
How does Light Therapy Treatment Generally work?
Light therapy, also called LED light therapy, has been popular in the market for more than 50 years. This treatment was previously used for treating chronic pain, joint issues, mild pain in the tissue and many more.

It works by stimulating the cells to bring about total skin rejuvenation. As a result, it helps control acne, redness, wrinkles, fine lines and many more.
