Needless to say light therapy is a supplementary treatment, your skin care products will be a number one factor in making a change in your skin. But Light therapy can nicely complement your skin care treatments and regimen. I personally love using light therapy in the middle of my skin care routine, after I cleanse and before I put serums or together with them depending what face serum or face cream I am using.

Red light is used to treat signs of aging — think: sun spots or sagging. It works by promoting collagen production, which is the foundation of the plump, firmness that is characteristic of youthful skin. (Infrared light is similar to red light except these wavelengths penetrate even deeper into the skin.)

Red light therapy is “also a great anti-inflammatory,” which ironically means it can help reduce redness in skin.

As you age, your collagen stores naturally break down and diminish, but there are plenty of treatments like red light therapy that jumpstart your skin cells to produce more. Research has also shown that red light therapy helps speed wound healing. When it comes to the appearance of your complexion, the theory is that it helps repair damaged cells.

Blue light therapy is most commonly used to treat acne. “It can be used to improve skin texture and complexion as well as reduce sebaceous hyperplasia, also known as enlarged oil glands, which contribute to ongoing acne breakouts, whiteheads and blackheads. It can also help with removing acne and acne scars.

Skin Buddy also contains Ultrasonic vibration and Ionphoresis in addition to LED therapy. Setting pulls out from the skin, while other settings drives in products.

As the ultrasound waves pass from the treatment head to the skin they cause a vibration of the surrounding tissues – this is called a cascade of intercellular communication. Happily for those of us seeking firmer skin, this mechanism is particularly effective on cells that contain collagen. You will not actually feel these vibrations on the surface of the skin and the device will not feel hot against the skin.The vibration massages the surrounding tissue, which increases oxygen to the cells and aids in the removal of waste. The skin should feel energized, rosy and firm.

We also have ultrasonic spatula that works in the same vibration as skin buddy in our office, together with Microderm machine.

Fun fact: Ultrasonic cleaning is used not just on the skin!

“Ultrasonic cleaning is a process that uses ultrasound (usually from 20–40 kHz) to agitate a fluid. The ultrasound can be used with just water, but use of a solvent appropriate for the item to be cleaned and the type of soiling present enhances the effect. Cleaning normally lasts between three and six minutes, but can also exceed 20 minutes, depending on the object to be cleaned.

Ultrasonic cleaners are used to clean many different types of objects, including jewelry, lenses and other optical parts, watches, dental and surgical instruments, tools, coins, fountain pens, golf clubs, fishing reels, window blinds, firearms, car fuel injectors, musical instruments, gramophone records, industrial parts and electronic equipment. They are used in many jewelry workshops, watchmakers’ establishments, and electronic repair workshops.”

Iontophoresis is a process of transdermal drug or skin care product delivery by use of a voltage gradient on the skin. Molecules are transported across the stratum corneum by electrophoresis and electroosmosis and the electric field can also increase the permeability of the skin.

Iontophoresis works on ions – water-soluble substances that have either a positive or negative charge – and is based on the general principle that like charges repel and unlike charges attract. By using a direct (galvanic) current, ions can be ‘pushed’ into the skin if the electrode (the active or working electrode) being used has the same charge as the ions in question; i.e., positive ions (cations) will be pushed into the skin by the positive electrode (anode) and negative ions (anions) will be similarly affected by the negative electrode (cathode).
