Green light therapy typically falls in the wavelength range of 515 nm to 520 nm and is most frequently used for skin treatments and anti-aging therapies, such as an LED photofacial.
The rejuvenating benefits of green light therapy can help to improve pigmentation issues that have come from causes such as sun damage. This treatment can help to fade the appearance of freckles, as well as age spots, sun spots, reddish and brown patches, and liver spots. Other forms of hyper pigmentation and melanin problems that are caused by age can also be lightened through the use of light in these wavelengths.
Green light affects the melanocytes (the cells that produce the melanin, which is the pigmentation in the bottom layer of the epidermis), reducing its production. Over time, spots simply fade away for a younger looking, rejuvenated, and more even complexion.
