Does LED Light Reduce Wrinkles and Acne?

LED lights have a lot more use than creating the perfect ambiance in your living room for a small dinner party. They are also being used on a micro-level to help with skin. Whether you are trying to get rid of acne or fine lines, we have the tools to help.  Wellnest is excited to offer anti-aging LED light therapy as well as anti-acne LED light therapy to help keep your face fresh and vibrant-looking. 

Let’s take a look at the uses and science behind LED light therapy for your skin so you can decide if this treatment is for you! 

Anti-Aging LED Light Therapy

Now, if we could just conjure the Fountain of Youth to drink from, we’d do that and charge you a one-time fee. This is not the case, however, though we do have something pretty close: Anti-Aging LED Light Therapy. As you age and your face is more exposed to the sun, your skin slowly deteriorates. And (sigh) much like your metabolism, the reproduction of collagen slows down, too. Right now is the time to begin treating your skin better by adding preventative care to your routine. 

We can boost the collagen in your face using proven red and near-infrared wavelengths in our Anti-Aging LED Light Therapy devices to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body’s natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.

There are so many other excellent benefits, as well!

  • Increased blood flow
  • Reduction and prevention of cell death (apoptosis)
  • Development of new capillaries (angiogenesis)
  • Cell generation to replace old cells (mitosis)
  • Enhanced Nitric Oxide production
  • Neurogenesis (new neurons)

If you were thinking of getting injections like Botox or Juvederm, we highly suggest this alternative. No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy. Harness the light for the better.


Blue Light LED Therapy for Acne

You thought your acne was done when you were 14, didn’t you? Sadly, that is not the case for everyone. Women in their late 20s and early 30s find themselves dealing with acne all over again because of the way their hormones have changed. It’s often later in life when we find that acne can also show up in places like your back, arms, shoulders, buttox, and thighs! Don’t worry, though. You are not alone. Three out of four people aged 11-30 experienced acne at one point in their lives! The good news about this is that new techniques to treat acne are improving faster and more effectively! Blue Light LED Therapy for Acne is no different!

Acne develops over the span of these steps:

  • It starts with an abundance of dead skin cells and a naturally-produced oil called sebum. It plugs tiny hair follicles, or pores. 
  • As sebum production continues to build under the plug in the skin’s surface, it becomes infected with P. acne bacteria, causing swelling, redness, and inflammation. 
  • Acne presents itself in many ways – whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts are all common forms of acne, and each type can require a different approach for treatment. 


Blue Light LED Therapy for Acne is different from the traditional or Dr. Pimple Popper ways. This new wave of skin care is for people who have tried other acne treatments, but still aren’t seeing the results they want. Light therapy is a non-toxic, non-invasive, and really, really effective alternative! LED light therapy works by killing acne-causing bacteria at the source, deep beneath the skin’s surface. Blue LED light therapy emits specific, clinically-proven wavelengths of light to trigger an all-natural effect in human tissue, killing acne-causing bacteria, decreasing inflammation, and improving skin tone, texture, and clarity from the inside out.

While acne doesn’t necessarily cause health problems, we know the mental health issues it can cause or exacerbate. Take this incredible alternative into consideration and use LED light therapy to help heal your skin! 

At Wellnest Acupuncture + Holistic Medicine we incorporate LED light therapy in all of our cosmetic facial acupuncture treatments. We get steller reviews because we get results.
