NASA ENGINEERED SKIN REGENERATION TECHNOLOGY
LED: LIGHT EMITTING DIODE
Included in all of Glo's facials or as an 'add on' for a full treatment, LED's technology was orginally developed by NASA. First tested on plants, then astronauts, it was found that LED helps regenerate cells making it a highly effective treatment. LED is used in the esthetic industry to improve collagen and elastin content in the skin, reduce acne, and increase skin's circulation. The technology works by releasing light onto the skin to stimulate specific responses at precise depths of the skin, nano meters; nm. The red and amber colors are effective in triggering the body to produce more of the fuel used to produce collagen and elastin. Nothing works better to regenerate the skin than these two critical components. The collagen provides structure, and the elastin keeps the skin flexible and firm. The red and amber lights stimulates certain cells (fibroblasts) to produce more of these two important substances at a rate they were produced when we were very young when the skin was soft, firm, and flexible. The blue light wavelengths have been shown to penetrate into the skin to kill bacteria underneath the surface of the skin helping to clear acne. At Glo we carry industry leaders LightStim Professional Panel and Déesse Professional mask to address both aging and acne concerns.
