Melanin is the pigment that is responsible for the colour of the skin, hair, and eyes in humans and determines their overall pigmentation. In the skin, it absorbs harmful UV rays, reducing oxidative stress and consequently reducing damage to the cells.
The production and distribution of melanin are influenced by genetic factors, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun (sun spots), hormonal changes, post-inflammatory responses to acne or skin trauma, and the natural ageing process. Hyperpigmentation refers to excessive melanin production caused by the overactivity of melanocytes and can manifest as dark spots, melasma, freckles, or uneven skin tone within the epidermis.
How does Green LED Light Therapy Treat Hyperpigmentation?
Déesse PRO utilises the specific wavelength of 545nm Green LED light therapy and has demonstrated significant efficacy in treating hyperpigmentation as it:
Breaks Down Melanin Clusters: This wavelength effectively targets melanin clusters within the epidermis, helping to break them down and reducing the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone.
Inhibits Melanin Production: Green LED light therapy penetrates the skin's surface, reaching the deeper layers where melanocytes reside. Studies have shown that exposure to green LED light inhibits the activity of these melanocytes, thereby reducing melanin production and minimising the likelihood of hyperpigmentation formation.
Enhances Cell Turnover and Regeneration: Green LED light therapy promotes cellular turnover and regeneration. Stimulating the skin cell proliferation 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.
In summary, Green LED light therapy offers a non-invasive, painless and promising solution for individuals seeking to address hyperpigmentation.
