LED Lighting Could Be a Botox Replacement
Few people will argue that LED lights are particularly attractive, but they may just be able to make you more attractive. German researchers reported last month that people who received several weeks of treatment under LED lights experienced a lessening of skin wrinkles similar to what is seen with Botox treatments.
The researchers’ study points out that LED lights penetrate the skin and cause changes in sub-surface tissue by changing the molecular makeup of a layer of water on elastin (the protein that provides elasticity in skin).
So in addition to being an energy-efficient form of lighting, we can now also refer to LED lights as a safe alternative to rat poison injections.
