Could Green Tea LED lights replace Botox??
Posted February 03, 2010 in Cosmetic Procedures
German scientists claim that a combination of LED lights plus green tea extract cream will result in “less pronounced wrinkle levels, shorter wrinkle valleys, and juvenile complexion.” I don’t know about you, but having a more “juvenile complexion” sounds mighty good to me!
It’s been known for over 40 years that light therapy will heal wounds and I’m sure you’re familiar with light therapy for skin rejuvenation in the form of IPL (intensed pulsed light) treatments. However, high-intensity LED’s such as those in computers and auto tail lights, have been shown to reduce skin wrinkles if applied every day over several months. However, there’s a nasty side-effect with the high-intensity LEDs—they can generate byproducts that damage the cells. Again, science to the rescue—apparently when the potent antioxidant, epigallocatechin gallate, found in green tea, is placed on the skin in a cream form, it negates the side-effects of the LEDs.
Furthermore, the combination of LEDs and green tea cream showed excellent results in only 10% of the time it took for the LED therapy alone to reduce wrinkles! Therefore, it’s both rapid and painless!
We’ll be following this fascinating discovery over time, and fill you in on the updates as we’re made aware of them! In the meantime, the liquid facelift is an excellent treatment while waiting for the LEDs+Green Tea to appear as an alternative.
