Seems to good to be true! But, based on research done by Germany Scientist, they had found an alternative to Botox and cosmetic surgery, as the method is claimed to have a facial wrinkle removal effect.

High intensity visible light from LED applied daily for several weeks result in rejuvenation of skin, and thus lead to reduce of wrinkle levels. The led lights will also juvenile your complexion with lasting resilience.

However, no further report on whether this high intensity visible light from LED will cause any kind of side effect to human skin in the long run.

LEDs (light emitting diodes) are miniature lights we can found in an array of daily used electronic devices such as from TV remote controls to traffic lights.

In the study, Andrei P. Sommer and Dan Zhu point out that high-intensity visible light has been used in medicine for more than 40 years to speed healing of wounds. That light actually penetrates into the skin, causing changes in the sub-surface tissue. Until now, however, scientists have not known the physicochemical nature of those changes.

They report identifying how the visible light works — by changing the molecular structure of a glue-like layer of water on elastin, the protein that provides elasticity in skin, blood vessels, heart and other body structures. Figuratively speaking, the light strips away those water molecules that are involved in the immobilization of elastin, gradually restoring its elastic function and thus reducing facial wrinkles. “We are justified in believing that our approach can be easily converted to deep body rejuvenation programs,” the researchers state.
