Dual Infrared and LED Light Therapy is a safe, advanced, and effective skin rejuvenation treatment that uses light technology with specific wavelengths to benefit a wide range of skin conditions. It naturally treats photoaging skin and rosacea by diminishing: fine lines, mild wrinkles, pore sizes, sun damage, overall redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries. It also gently manages normal to acne skin, even atopic skin, and fades acne scars. The high performance, dual infrared and LED light energy regenerates skin cells, stimulates collagen and elastin, and promotes a natural skin-healing response deep below the skin. It is composed of three different types of wavelengths: infrared (830 nm), red LED (656 nm), and blue LED (415 nm). Depending on the skin condition, a custom combination of two or more lights can be applied to enhance visible results, revealing firmer, vibrant, and healthy-looking skin.
All Dual Infrared and LED Light Therapy treatments finish with applications of: skin-specific serums, replenishing gels, calming balms, hydrators, and broad spectrum SPFs.
How does it work?
Infrared Light Therapy
Infrared Light from a low-level, laser-emitting diode within the invisible light region features high energy, infrared rays to penetrate deep below the inner layers of the skin for the increase of blood flow and relaxation. It provides a thermal effect through the simple absorption of infrared light energy primarily by proteins in the cell membrane for cell permeability and synergy effect of red and blue light, which safely trigger the conversion of light energy into cell energy. This allows for the enhanced treatment of common benign skin conditions, such as aging skin, sun damage, acne scars, and rosacea with efficacy through significant improvements in skin complexion and texture for overall softness, smoothness, and firmness.
Red LED Light Therapy
Red LED Light is within the visible light region and the closest wavelength to infrared light. It boosts blood circulation and activates active ingredients. Red LED Light improves the skin’s barrier function by enhancing its ability to: retain key elements it needs to heal, regenerate healthy skin cells, and stimulate collagen and elastin productions. It also targets the skin’s oil glands to reduce cytokines, a class of pro-inflammatory substances that play a role in chronic acne. Red LED Light has many reduction benefits of: fine lines, enlarged pores, and broken capillaries. The skin will also appear smoother, more even-toned, and firmer with each treatment.
Blue LED Light Therapy
Blue LED Light is within the visible light region and the closest wavelength to ultraviolet light. It soothes skin problems and targets the strain of bacteria that plays a pivotal role in causing acne for many people. The light causes the development of oxygen radicals that kill P. Acne bacteria without damaging healthy skin. The treatment includes a custom infusion of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and acne-controlling ingredients to eliminate existing acne blemishes, control sebum production, and prevent future breakouts.
What does the procedure feel like?
As there is little to no heat generated, there is no risk of thermal and tissue damages, making it one of the safest, not painful, and simplest solution.
How many treatments will I need?
Although you will definitely see visible results after your very first treatment, the effects are cumulative. A series of three to six treatments spaced two weeks apart is recommended to start, with maintenance treatments every six to eight weeks. Best results come with supplemental sun protection and a good daily skin care regimen.
Is there any downtime after the treatments?
Dual Infrared and LED Light Therapy is non-invasive, causes no inflammation, has no downtime, and requires no special post-treatment procedure.
Note that a chemical peel and microdermabrasion may be applied before or after Dual Infrared and LED Light Therapy to complement the treatments. Light exfoliation and Dual Infrared and LED Light Therapy are an excellent combination to enhance results.
