How does LED Photon works? How does it help your skin?
For years the medical profession has touted the benefits of using laser therapy to heal and rejuvenate damaged skin. Fortunately, the news from the dermatology front keeps getting better with the new and successful use of Photon LED technology to treat inflammation and acne.
Recent research has shown that exposing the skin to light stimulates circulation and causes it to produce collagen, a naturally-occurring protein that makes skin stronger and reduces wrinkles.
What is LED Skin Rejuvenation?
LED Skin Rejuvenation is the interaction of light, delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), to activate cell receptors causing them to produce collagen or multiply.
How does LED Skin Rejuvenation work?
The light from the LEDs interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce new collagen and elastin. By manipulating the wavelengths, cells can be turned on and off. Yellow light LEDs are used for photo-rejuvenation. Blue light LEDs are used in the treatment of acne. Red light LEDs are used for PhotoDynamic therapy.
What Does The Different Photon LED Colors Mean?
There are three different colors that make up Photon LED light: blue, red, and green. Each color has restorative properties of its own.
Blue light. Blue light is best at healing rashes, especially those on sensitive and oily skin. It’s strong anti-bacterial effects make it an excellent choice for the treatment of acne.
Red light. Red light is known as the deepest penetrator of skin, reaching more than 8 to 10 millimeters below the surface. It can reduce inflammation by improving blood circulation.
Green light. Green is the soothing light. Green light relaxes the entire body and reduces pain. It is also excellent for reducing inflammation.

What is the Difference Between Photon LED and Other Laser Therapies?
Photon LED and lasers are similar in that they both use light as their method of healing. Both of these technologies work equally well at dealing with acne.
A laser must be used in a medical environment and by a person trained in their use. Before each treatment, ALA (5-aminolevulinic acid) is used to make the skin more receptive to the laser rays. It is recommended that three to five separate laser treatments be used to show results. Further, these separate treatments should be three to five weeks apart. Treatments last from five to 30 minutes, and exposure to sunlight should be avoided for at least two weeks both before and after treatments.
Photon LED treatments can be administered at home with an Fyola device. No medical training is required to use this device and it can be used on yourself. There is no pretreatment required, and a maximum of three sessions is recommended. Treatments last from three to five minutes.
Current research indicates that Photon LED treatments are more effective than lasers and with greater skin benefits. It has also been proven that side effects are less severe and most patients report significantly less pain. By contrast, laser patients report greater discomfort during as well as after treatments as well as some redness, inflammation, and skin peeling.
Some patients who use Photon LED treatments report minor side effects as a result of treatment. These side effects include some redness and irritation. Some minor pain and discomfort have also been reported. There are no after-treatments that are required with Photon LED therapy.
The overall effectiveness for both treatments is reported as favorable, however, many patients who have used laser therapy report that their results are often only temporary, with symptoms returning after a short time. Visible results are also apparent, with acne and other conditions returning. The clearance rate of laser treatments range from 37 to 83 percent, contrasted with Photon LED treatments, which often have a clearance rate of 81 percent. Continued treatment with Photon LED is required to maintain results.
