LED, the light-emitting diode technology found in everything from TV sets to exit signs, is proving to be a smooth operator in the wrinkle-reducing realm.
German researchers have confirmed the effectiveness of LED treatments as an anti-aging implement when used every day for several weeks. The high-intensity visible light noticeably rejuvenated skin and reduced wrinkles, resulting in a younger-looking, more resilient complexion.
The research team discovered the reason behind this effect is LED’s ability to change the molecular structure of the water layer on elastin, the protein in connective tissues that allows skin to stretch and return to its original position. This leads to the restoration of elasticity and thus, the reduction of wrinkles.
