Ageing Skin and the Loss of Elasticity
Understanding Skin Elasticity Loss with Age
Aging brings about many changes in our bodies, one of which is the loss of elasticity in our skin. This loss occurs primarily because our bodies produce less collagen as we age. Consequently, our skin loses its ability to bounce back in place, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Intrinsic Factors Affecting Skin Health
Intrinsic factors influencing our skin health are those that are inherently beyond our control. These include our genetics and our biological age. Although we cannot halt the passage of time or alter our genes, we can age gracefully by focusing on elements we can influence.
Extrinsic Factors Impacting Skin Aging
Extrinsic factors, on the other hand, are external elements that can affect our skin health. These include environmental factors such as cigarette smoking, exposure to harsh weather, an unhealthy lifestyle and diet, overexposure to the sun’s harmful rays or excessive UV exposure, and the use of harsh skincare products. By being mindful of these, we can mitigate their impact on our skin’s aging process.

Using Red Light to Reverse Fine Lines and Wrinkles
How Red Light Therapy Energizes Cells
Red light therapy works by energizing our skin cells. The therapy prompts these cells to release Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), which enhances the metabolic process, cell regeneration, and other cellular activities. This surge of cellular energy optimizes the utilization of nutrients and oxygen, detoxification, growth, and repair, all of which are initiated by exposure to red light treatment.
The Impact of Red Light Therapy on Blood Circulation
One of the benefits of red light therapy is that it stimulates blood circulation and fosters the development of new capillaries. The result is an increased delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, contributing to a healthier, radiant glow. This light-induced stimulation often produces the instant glow associated with young and healthy skin.
Red Light Therapy and Lymphatic System Activity
Red light therapy also has a significant impact on the lymphatic system, promoting its activity to reduce puffiness and swelling. Thanks to the increased blood circulation, the lymphatic system becomes more efficient at removing excess fluids and wastes from skin tissues. The immediate results can be observed after the initial treatment and continue to improve with each subsequent session.
Collagen and Fibroblast Production Boosted by Red Light Therapy
The therapy is also known for its role in boosting the production of collagen and fibroblasts, the superheroes of youthful skin. Collagen, in conjunction with elastin, lends elasticity, firmness, and fullness to our skin, attributes that tend to diminish with age. The surge in collagen and fibroblasts helps reduce pore size, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall texture of the skin over time.
Case Studies on the use of Red Light to Reduce Fine Lines
A paper was published in the Photomag Laser Surg publication to investigate on the safety and efficacy of red light, involving 136 volunteers. Of these volunteers, 113 subjects randomly assigned into four treatment groups were treated twice a week with either 611–650 or 570–850 nm polychromatic light (normalized to ∼9 J/cm2 in the range of 611–650 nm) and were compared with controls (n=23). Irradiances and treatment durations varied in all treatment groups. The treated subjects experienced significantly improved skin complexion and skin feeling, profilometrically assessed skin roughness, and ultrasonographically measured collagen density.
In conclusion, Red Light Treatment (or RLT) or AfterGlow can lead to improvements in skin complexion as well as skin rejuvenation. AfterGlow provides a safe, non-ablative and non-thermal treatment of skin tissue with high patient satisfaction results. AfterGlow, when used on a regular and consistent basis as part of the Elight Monthly Facial plan will help extend the spectrum of anti-ageing treatment benefits to the customers.
