As beauty continue to get smarter, we’re seeing an emphasis on devices with LED light technology. These hi-tech tools replicate the effects of professional facials by treating your skin from the inside out. With the choice of different light spectra such as acne-fighting blue light or anti-aging red light, LED therapy has the ability to penetrate your skin at different depths to target different concerns. These smart gadgets work harmoniously with your daily skincare routine to speed up the body’s natural healing process and collagen production, as well as to boost product absorption for amplified effects.
