LED Light Therapy
A painless, non-invasive treatment for lines & wrinkles, general aging, wound healing, acne, problem skin and photo damage. Suitable for all skin types and can be used in combination with skin peels, facials, microdermabrasion and laser treatments to further enhance treatment results.
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED is a painless, even relaxing skin-care treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production and treats mild to moderate acne. LED treatments are sometimes also called LED light therapy, LED red light, LED blue light, or by the name of the manufacturer, such as Dermawave or Revitalight. LED stands for light-emitting-diodes. First developed by NASA, LED works by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin. LED’s are tiny light bulbs that emit non-thermal specific wavelengths of light from the visible spectrum. LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive method of light therapy that stimulates the skins natural repair and rejuvenation processes making it safe for all skin types and effective in the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions.
Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. Professional LED machines can also minimize fine lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks, and reduce redness after more aggressive IPL or laser treatments. The results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, IPL or laser, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go.
Blue light LED works by killing the bacteria deep in the skin that is responsible for acne.
How does LED Light Therapy work?
The skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate a healing response. LED therapy uses specific color wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin at varying depths. The light energizes cells to produce collagen, improve elasticity and increase blood circulation and oxygen flow while releasing toxins. This in turn stimulates the anti-aging process, helps to normalize cellular imbalances, and improves skin tone and clarity. It is a natural biochemical reaction similar to that of plant photo-synthesis which triggers the body to convert light energy to cell energy. LED Light therapy is recognized medically and is a clinically proven treatment. Laboratory studies have shown that when skin is exposed to LED Light wavelengths, skin cells regenerate themselves on average 150% to 200% faster and hydration can be increased by up to 600%.
Treatable Conditions – Amazing results!
LED Light therapy is effective for skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne and problem skin, sensitive and inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis and post treatment healing and scars. With LED therapy there are some immediate visible changes in the skin, but most changes occur naturally over a few weeks. The light stimulates natural processes even after the treatment has stopped. LED is a progressive rather than an aggressive approach and builds resistance over time to aging and external factors.
How many treatments are required?
An LED light treatment simply involves exposing the client’s skin to the beneficial light for 20 to 30 minutes. The number of treatments required can vary with skin type and condition. A single session is an ideal ‘pick me up’ however, a course of treatment is recommended for longer term results. As LED Light Therapy will not damage the skin there is no limit to the amount of treatments that can be taken and is an ideal all year round treatment.
How safe is the treatment?
LED therapy is a gentle, heat free treatment that does not contain harmful ultraviolet wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue. It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, colors and conditions and there is no downtime or risk of unwanted side effects.
LED Red Light – For Skin Rejuvenation, Anti-Aging & Healing
Red light is beneficial for all skin types and has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It has been proven to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, smooth skin texture, improve skin laxity, increase circulation and lymph drainage and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial hyperpigmentation. It is also an excellent treatment for sufferers of sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
