When it comes to aging, a significant factor that leads to wrinkles, fine lines, and joint pain is due to inadequate collagen levels. Collagen is the main structural protein found in your skin and other connective tissue. Collagen literally holds our bodies together.
Fibroblast cells are responsible for producing collagen and elastin, the two most common proteins in connective tissue. However, as we age, our fibroblasts become compromised resulting in lower levels of these proteins. We might start noticing decreased elasticity in our skin, wrinkles, and our joints may not move as freely as they used to. This is because lower levels of collagen lead to breakdowns in cartilage which can cause inflammation, soreness, stiffness, arthritis, and prolonged recovery time after physical activity.
Common signs of aging can include:
• Skin deterioration
• Chronic joint and muscle pain
Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma LED light therapy devices to combat the signs of aging.
Increased fibroblast proliferation is just one benefit of LED red light therapy. Fibroblasts make collagen fibres, so it stands to reason that the more, and healthier, fibroblasts we have in the skin, the more and better collagen fibres are made. And as we all know, collagen synthesis and maintenance is the bedrock of anti-aging.
Healthy collagen levels are what give us a glowing complexion, firm skin, strong nails, dense bones, and healthy hair. It is also essential in keeping muscles, joints, and tendons in healthy working order. Simply put, the more our bodies produce collagen, the better we’ll look and feel as we get older.
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.
