2. How does the Skin Elixir Red Light Therapy Facial Radiance Wand work?
The red light wavelengths (620-630nm) by the Radiance Wand penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular renewal. This photo technology activates cellular metabolism and energy, assisting the production of collagen and elastin synthesis by increasing ATP synthesis and metabolising the fibroblast cells. Photo-modulation emulates photosynthesis in human skin cells, using the cells own cytochromes to build new proteins just as plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into structural building blocks. Low wattage light is directed through the skins epidermis and aimed at fibroblast cells, which produce collagen and elastin. The light stimulates the cells own energy transport system, therefore helping to stimulate and renew the skin. This helps to improve skin health, reduce wrinkles, and enhance overall complexion, reducing redness and inflammation.
