Red LED Light Therapy
The primary cause of sagging skin and wrinkles is the loss of collagen and elastin production as you age. Collagen and elastin are proteins in your skin that provide structure—giving it a firm, youthful appearance.
As the years go on, less collagen and elastin, sun exposure, and other environmental factors all have an impact on your skin. The key to restoring skin and promoting a more youthful appearance is improving your skin’s structure from within.
One of our favorite anti-aging treatments in Red LED light therapy. Anti-aging light therapy in Chicago at CaTara Medical Spa is a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. This treatment boosts collagen production with light energy—all with no downtime.
