How do the benefits of red light therapy complement Vitamin C serums?

Like Vitamin C serums, red light therapy is a non-invasive, therapeutic treatment that has been shown through scientific studies to be an effective anti-aging solution. Some red light therapy devices are developed with the same technology used by dermatologists and physicians, as well as many influencers, to help reduce or prevent signs of aging. Benefits of red light therapy that compliment Vitamin C serums include the following.

Improved complexion

Red light therapy has been shown to improve a person’s overall complexion. When put to the test by scientists in a controlled study of 136 volunteers, the results stated that the subjects experienced significantly improved skin complexion.

Cellular regeneration

At a cellular level, LED light therapy improves circulation and blood flow, which supports healing and cell regeneration. This has many positive effects towards the skin, including stimulation of healing from sunburn or acne scarring, reduction of inflammation, and overall skin rejuvenation.

Wrinkle reduction

Another effect of red light enhancing the circulation and blood flow of cells, is that it encourages the production of collagen and elastin. Since collagen is what keeps the skin firmer, with a plumper and overall youthful look, this boost in collagen production can help fade fine lines and wrinkles.

Can using Vitamin C products with light therapy enhance results for skincare?

Even though light therapy is known to provide fast-acting results, you can certainly use other skincare products in conjunction with light therapy treatments. Many skincare professionals have found that combining light therapy with targeted skincare products, like those containing peptides, hyaluronic acid, green tea, and white tea, can help increase the effectiveness of the products up to 12 times. Just remember that the order of application matters and that it’s best to apply serums after light therapy treatment. If your primary skincare goal is to brighten your complexion with a boost of radiance, then the brightening benefits of Vitamin C pair nicely with red light therapy. We could all use a little extra glow from time to time, this makes Vitamin C a versatile addition to nearly any skincare routine. On the other hand, if you have other skincare goals you want to prioritize, like wrinkle reduction, then it may be good to explore how to use retinol with light therapy.

How to use Vitamin C products with red light therapy

For best results, it is always recommended to use LED products on a clean face. This allows the light therapy to effectively penetrate the skin without any barriers. Since certain skincare products, like those containing retinol or light activated ingredients like sunscreen, can be disruptive or harmful when applied directly before light therapy, it’s best to stay in the habit of using any LED tool on a bare, freshly-cleansed face. After you’ve completed your light therapy session at home, you can apply your Vitamin C serum of choice followed by a moisturizer. Remember to allow a few minutes in between each step of your routine, as serums typically need a couple of minutes to dry and to be fully absorbed by the skin.
