This is a treatment that is used to help repair and rejuvenate skin. It encourages collagen to stimulate & rebuild, thus rejuvenating the skin. It was discovered in NASA, for quick healing of injuries the anti-ageing effect. When astronauts were in space because there is no gravity, oxygen, or sunlight skin injuries did not heal, so they invented led light to promote skin healing. They noted that a pleasant side effect was anti-ageing.
