LED + Green Tea = Wrinkle Removal
What do you get when combine an old world and new world approach to skin rejuvenation? Well to believers in LED and Green Tea skin treatments, the answer is great results!
For over 40 years, skin care professionals have been performing light-emitting diode (LED) treatments on skin as an alternative to surgery or Botox. LEDs were first used on skin to speed the healing of wounds, but have since become a welcome method of wrinkle removal. Wrinkles occur as we age and the elasticity of our skin breaks down, and, like lasers, LEDs change the molecular structure of the skin to free up collagen and elastin, the protein responsible for skin’s elasticity. Compared to traditional lasers, though, LEDs have a much lower intensity. That can actually make them ideally suited to some less intense forms of skin rejuvenation, however.
On the other end of the cosmetic spectrum, green tea has long been added to facial treatments for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea has been added as a preventative measure to fight against aging, and many swear by the caffeine in the tea for reducing the appearance of wrinkles, although this latter point is still debated.
The argument for green tea as a wrinkle reducer, however, is building after researchers in Germany studied the effects of using a green tea cream in addition to LED therapy. What scientists discovered is that the addition of green tea showed improvement in skin’s appearance ten times faster than LED therapy alone! A one-month study showed drastic reduction in the appearance of wrinkles on human skin.
If rapid wrinkle-reduction is what you’ve been searching for, you may be interested in speaking with a skin care professional about the benefits of LED light, and its combination with green tea extract. While at-home LED skin care devices exist, it is always best to seek professional treatment rather than risk damaging your skin. In addition, the use of green tea extract along with LEDs is a fairly new concept and requires more testing. Your skin care professional will be able to discuss with you the safest, most effective options to rejuvenate your unique skin type.
