What is Photo Rejuvenation–LED?
In the late 1990's, lab studies on cells showed that near–infrared wavelengths can boost the activity of mitochondria, the crucial powerhouses in cells. That caught the attention of NASA, which hoped it could use the technique to treat astronauts in space, where injuries heal more slowly than on Earth, possibly because mitochondria do not function properly. The treatment requires high–intensity light, but instead of lasers, NASA has developed powerful light–emitting diodes for the job. Lasers tend to damage cells, whereas LED's can deliver light in a way that is less harmful to tissue.
Photo Rejuvenation–LED treatments are a non–invasive effective anti–aging therapy. The light passes harmlessly through the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis. Slows the progression of Rosacea, decreases age spots without any downtime or discomfort and gives the skin a youthful appearance.
