LED light therapy has been developed for over half a century. In the 1950s, NASA developed it for their astronauts who spent a lot of time in weightless environments. Technology has come a long way since then and by now in-depth scientific evidence has been collected on the benefits of LED lights. In order to understand how the MILUX LED Face Mask works, it is important to look at the technology and its effect on the human body, especially its effect on cells and proteins.
If a cell gets stressed, due to injury, aging or disease, it starts a chain reaction. The mitochondria of a stressed cell will produce nitric oxide (NO) which displaces oxygen needed in the mitochondria and consequently reduces the ATP which causes an overactive production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). This will lead to oxidative stress which increases inflammation and cell death.
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) disassociates nitric oxide and allows oxygen back into the cell and restores ATP which means, no chain reaction will cause oxidative stress.A normal mitochondrial function is restored, and the cell metabolism is being enhanced which incidentally restores and improves the normal function of the cell and extends the life of anti-aging enzymes.
Low-level laser therapy only works on a certain wavelength of laser. Executing LLLT below the necessary dose range has no effect. The MILUX LED Face Mask works with the specified wavelengths and stimulates the movement of macrophage cells. These cells are a type of white blood cell which functions by engulfing and digesting everything without the types of proteins that are specific to healthy body cells like cellular debris, foreign substances and others.
Another bodily response to the LED lights is skin proliferation which refers to the growth of new skin tissue and increased angiogenesis which means the creation of new blood vessels and helps manipulation blood flow to the site of injury. A more regulated and better blood flow helps to form and remodel vascular structures.
This is not the only way MILUX helps with skin recovery. Another big function of the mask is its influence on the collagen production. MILUX’s LED lights help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. With age the production of these proteins slows down which leads to loss of elasticity of the skin and results in wrinkles. The LED light in the MILUX mask sends a range of light wavelengths which penetrate the top layers of the skin and regenerate regular cells as well as boost the production of collagen and elastin. Studies have shown that LED’s are believed to inactivate various enzymes within the skin which damage collagen.
To summarise, MILUX LED Face Mask works with specified wavelengths which have been proven to penetrate the upper layers of the skin, stimulate collagen and elastin production, extends the life of anti-aging enzymes and improves cell functions. Its LED’s also have a positive effect on the endogenous natural recovery by speeding up cellular metabolic activity. The MILUX LED Face Mask has been thoroughly tested and low-level laser therapy is already established in many medical sectors. Near infrared rays used on specific wavelengths have shown their positive effects on the body and can do their work in this ergonomically designed mask to benefit every patients skin.
