LED or Light Emitting Diode
LED, or light emitting diode therapy, is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light. These include red and blue light frequencies, which don’t contain ultraviolet rays and are readily absorbed into the skin.
LED light therapy has an established history of skin uses. The U.S. Navy SEALs began using it in the 1990s to help heal wounds quickly and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues. Since then, the treatment has been researched for different situations in aesthetics. It’s mainly noted for increasing collagen and tissues. All of which can smooth out your skin and reduce the appearance of damage from age spots, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne.
NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment. LED light therapy is now used by some aestheticians to help regenerate the skin from aging. It’s also used for acne and hyperpigmention.
Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Therefore, they’re safe for regular use. LED light therapy doesn’t cause burns compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It may be safe for all skin colors and types. Do not use LED light therapy if you are taking Accutane for acne or if you have skin rashes. Side effects are rare.
Some of the benefits of LED include:
- promotes wound healing and tissue repair
- improves hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia
- help for the short-term treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome
- stimulates healing of slow-healing wounds, like diabetic foot ulcers
- reduces psoriasis lesions
- aids with short-term relief of pain and morning stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis
- improves skin complexion and builds collagen to diminish wrinkles
- helps to mend sun damage
- prevents recurring cold sores from herpes simplex virus infections
- improves the health of joints in people with degenerative osteoarthritis
- helps diminish scars
- relieves pain and inflammation in people with pain in the Achilles tendons
LED light therapy is noninvasive, therefore no recovery time is required. You should be able to continue with your everyday activities once you've completed your treatment.

The Illuminate LED™ Red Panel
Illuminate LED™ is a revolutionary LED phototherapy device for spas and home use. Illuminate uses 1800 LEDs because with 1800 LEDs you will complete the treatment in less time, just (5) minutes!! With jam-packed 1800 LEDs, the Illuminate can run each at a lower power. Lower power means less heat and longer life.
Other panels have 100, 200, or maybe 300 LEDs and either has a large heat sink or a small number of LEDs without a heat sink.
Try before you buy!
Try this experiment: Hold a piece of paper up to other LED devices. You will see spots where the light is brightest and places of very low-level light in between these bright spots. Their optical energy is not uniform. Illuminate is the only LED device that provides uniform energy from less than an inch all the way to three inches. Hold a piece of white paper up to the Iluminate to experience this uniform energy that your skin is getting. The Illuminate Panel is lightweight, thin, flexible, and powerful. The revolutionary, patent-pending, design of the Illuminate Panel not only makes it very thin but also provides several wonderful benefits.
The Illuminate Panel is by far the very best LED panel in its class.
