Our skin begins to age as we reach our twenties and this is precisely the time when the skin’s water retention ability starts to decline. Oxygen levels also come down, and the skin starts losing its radiant glow. Later on, the skin produces less collagen, which in turn brings out fine lines and increase acne scars, some due to less oil retention and dehydration of the skin.
That’s why you need to take measures to support skin health and reduce the acceleration of these problems. The sooner we start to care for our skin the healthier and long-living it will be, and the less invasive procedures will be needed down the road. Often non-invasive skincare procedures will do enough to address skincare problems.

LED photo modulation
This is the latest technique that is performed to fight skin aging. Unlike invasive treatments that require the use of harsh chemicals, this procedures uses LEDs (light-emitting diodes) of low-intensity to rejuvenate the production of collagen in the skin, resulting in a more youthful look.
It also suppresses the enzymes that degenerate collagen. In most procedures, an LED device is applied to the affected area and the procedure is performed only for 5-10 minutes.
