LED Photo Rejuvenation,Intense Pulsed Light or Infra-Red Light
and it's Affects on Skin Rejuvenation
In order for your skin to continue to exist, it has to constantly reproduce new cells to take the place of the ones that are being shed.
People need certain wavelengths of light similar to the way plants need sunlight to thrive. Your skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration.
LED Photo Rejuvenation or Intense Pulsed Light (P.R./IPL) is infra-red light which stimulates the cell activity; this increases Collagen and Elastin production. (The proteins responsible for strength and elasticity of the skin).
Photo Rejuvenation translates the process of plant photosynthesis into the workings of human skin cells, stimulating the body's own cells to build new proteins the same way plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into cellular building blocks.
Photo Rejuvenation flows light through your skin's epidermis to fibroblast cells, which produce such structural proteins as collagen and elastin. When the light hits the cytochromes inside the fibroblasts' mitochondria, it stimulates the cell's energy transport system. The cell produces more structural proteins, which in turn gives it the appearance of improved tone and elasticity.
Photo Rejuvenation sends light rays into the cells, which in turn excite the Mitochondria into producing up to 10 times more ATP. This fuels the cell's activities, which causes more of the needed Collagen and Elastin to be produced, as well as other needed materials for the skin.
ATP - Nature's Energy Store
All living things, plants and animals, require a continual supply of energy in order to function. The energy is used for all the processes which keep the organism alive. Some of these processes occur continually, such as the metabolism of foods, the synthesis of large, biologically important molecules, e.g. proteins and DNA, and the transport of molecules and ions throughout the organism. Other processes occur only at certain times, such as muscle contraction and other cellular movements. Animals obtain their energy by oxidation of foods, plants do so by trapping the sunlight using chlorophyll. However, before the energy can be used, it is first transformed into a form which the organism can handle easily. This special carrier of energy is the molecule adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. (Nobel Prize winner Paul May ? Bristol University).
The light rays that are emitted from infra-red light also come from the Sun. They are a natural light. The only problem with getting these light rays from the Sun alone is that you also get harmful Sun rays that can damage your skin more than do it good.
Using infra-red light you only get good helpful rays of light that help your skin produce the Collagen and Elastin it needs to continue to appear healthy, smooth and radiant. The more Collagen and Elastin you have in your skin the smoother, healthier and radiant it will look and feel.
Infra-red light also stimulates cells into producing other substances needed for repair. Dr. Harry T. Whelan says, "The light is absorbed by mitochondria where it stimulates energy metabolism in muscle and bone, as well as skin and subcutaneous tissue."
The Medical Collage of Wisconsin says, "Our laboratory has improved the healing of wounds in laboratory animals by using NASA LED light and hyperbaric oxygen. Furthermore, DNA synthesis in fibroblasts and muscle cells has been quintupled using NASA LED light alone..."
How Was This Discovered?
P.R./IPL was discovered accidentally by NASA about 40 years ago. Astronauts who became injured while in space would not heal until they were back here on Earth. Scientists didn't know the reason until plants were placed aboard space craft with the intent to grow food during long distance space travel. These scientists determined that the red LED lights that were used to encourage the plants to grow were in fact healing the astronauts' wounds! Now the astronauts who became injured while in space were healing before they got back to earth, due to the P.R/IPL. They concluded that the red spectrum of light is the healing spectrum and the ultra violet light spectrum are the damaging rays.
Here is what a few experts are saying about Photo-Rejuvenation
All aspects of wrinkling, skin coarseness, pore size, irregular pigmentation showed visible improvement with Photo Rejuvenation. ---Dermatology Times
Photo Rejuvenation treatments...the results are the closest thing to a face lift that I've been able to achieve since becoming an esthetician. ---Day Spa Magazine
The treatment is especially effective at improving the appearance of the face, neck and chest, by reducing signs of aging, wrinkles and age spots. ---Web M.D. Health
A process called Photo Rejuvenation can smooth away wrinkles, erase age spots and relieve the symptoms of Rosacea. ---ABC's Good Morning America
With all this cell energy stimulation happening from the infra-red lght rays being massaged into your skin, what do you think would happen if you super-charged your skin with the exact nutrients it needs to build or re-build itself?
Answer: Better, superior anti-aging results!
