What? LED Light is Better that Botox?!


Um, there is a german study that says LED light is better for your wrinkles than Botox.  I’m not sure really what to say about that, except for that LEDs rock, and they’ve GOT to be better than medical grade Botulism toxin.  From the report:

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.

Part of me wants to say “duh,” but the other part of me is excited that research is being done on LED light for medical breakthroughs.
