Does LED Light Therapy Really Work?
If what you want is a more defined neckline or tighter skin, then you’ll need to look to other, more invasive, cosmetic treatments, says Melissa Doft, head of New York City-based Doft Plastic Surgery. “LED lights only truly work on the skin’s surface for pigmentation and very fine surface lines. I do not think these devices will satisfy most patients who are seeing the signs of aging. I would place them on the level of cosmetic creams. They will make a small difference when used religiously, but will not replace the need for lasers, fillers, botox, and surgical intervention,” she said.
