There’s a new way to stay looking younger and (hallelujah) it doesn’t involve needles. The new red light therapy chair from Ergoline in Germany is a painless and efficient (each session is just 10 minutes) way to promote healthier, younger looking skin.
So why do we get wrinkles?
Skin aging is influenced by numerous factors and the supply of nutrients to the epidermis (outer layer of skin) starts to decline from the age of 25 onwards, resulting in a tired, sallow and uneven complexion
As we get older, fibroblast (cells that produce collagen) slow down, resulting in a continual decline in the collagen content of the skin. Since collagen is the primary filler in connective tissue, the skin loses tautness and elasticity, which causes wrinkles to form.
How does light help?
- the Beauty Angel Collagen Bed uses near-infra red and range light to stimulate our own production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronan (helps with moisture).
- Small wrinkles are reduced
- Skin feels tighter and smoother
- Skin cells regenerate up to 200% faster as there is better oxygen supply to the skin
- It also enhances skin absorption, making your cosmetics more effective
I wanted to test the Collagen Bed for myself and check out the results. After 10 sessions I noticed the very fine lines around my eyes were almost gone completely and also my pores were smaller (very exciting). I think my skin feels softer too, but it’s hard to say. What I enjoyed most about the experience is that not only does it do your face but also your neck, chest and even your hands too, which are all areas prone to early aging. It’s private and painless and you can fit it in whenever you like (they recommend twice a week).
There are no adverse side effects and no UV, it is completely painless, safe and non invasive. A course of 15 sessions costs $399 and is available at both the Ponsonby and Botany branches.
