The Green Light to Radiant Skin
Unveiling the Benefits of Green LED Light Therapy for Treatment of Hyperpigmentation
Hyperpigmentation, a common skin concern affecting individuals of all skin types, occurs when certain areas of the skin become darker than the surrounding skin. While numerous factors contribute to hyperpigmentation, such as sun exposure, hormonal changes, and inflammation, finding an effective and non-invasive treatment option for many sufferers has been challenging. Luckily, Déesse PRO can give you the Green Light to Radiant, clear skin! In this blog post, we will explore the nature of hyperpigmentation, its causes, and delve into the clinically supported benefits of green LED light therapy.
Hyperpigmentation refers to the excessive production of melanin, the pigment responsible for our skin colour. It can manifest as dark spots, melasma, freckles, or uneven skin tone. Hyperpigmentation occurs due to various factors, including prolonged exposure to the sun's damaging UV rays (referred to as sun spots), hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy or menopause, post-inflammatory responses to acne or skin trauma, and the natural ageing process.
Benefits of Green LED Light Therapy for Treatment of Hyperpigmentation:
- Targeted Wavelength: Green LED light therapy utilises a specific wavelength range of around 525 to 550 nanometers, which has demonstrated significant efficacy in treating hyperpigmentation. This wavelength effectively targets melanin clusters (melanocytes), helping to break them down and reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone.1 The Déesse PRO LED light therapy device has a green mode 3 that operates at 545 nanometers.
- Inhibits Melanin Production: Green LED light therapy penetrates the skin's surface, reaching the deeper layers where melanocytes, the cells responsible for melanin production, reside. Studies have shown that exposure to green LED light inhibits the activity of these melanocytes, thereby reducing melanin production and minimising hyperpigmentation.2
- Enhances Cell Turnover and Regeneration: Green LED light therapy promotes cellular turnover and regeneration.3 By stimulating the skin cells, it helps shed the hyperpigmented layers and promotes the growth of new, healthier skin cells. This process gradually leads to a more even complexion and a reduction in hyperpigmentation.
- Minimally Invasive and Painless: Green LED light therapy is a non-invasive and painless treatment option for hyperpigmentation. It does not involve the use of chemicals, needles, or invasive procedures, making it a comfortable choice for individuals seeking a gentle yet effective solution, with no downtime.
Incorporating Green LED Light Therapy into Your Skincare Routine:
To incorporate green LED light therapy into your skincare routine for hyperpigmentation treatment, consider the following steps:
- Cleanse and Prepare Your Skin: Before each green LED light therapy session, cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove any impurities or makeup. This ensures optimal light penetration and absorption.
- Use mode 3 Green light on your Déesse PRO LED light therapy device for 10 minutes, 2-3 times per week to see an improvement in hyperpigmentation and complexion.
- Complement with Skincare Products: Enhance the effectiveness of green LED light therapy by using skincare products that contain ingredients targeting hyperpigmentation, such as vitamin C, kojic acid, or niacinamide.
In summary, Green LED light therapy offers a promising solution for individuals seeking to address hyperpigmentation. By utilising its targeted wavelength and promoting melanin reduction, green LED light therapy can effectively minimise dark spots and uneven skin tone. Supported by clinical research, this non-invasive and painless treatment option enhances cell turnover and regeneration, leading to a more even complexion over time.
