LED Light Therapy is a safe and effective use of advanced light technology to benefit a wide range of skin conditions. Using specific frequencies, the light energy regenerates skin cells, stimulates collagen and elastin, and promotes a natural skin healing response. This therapy diminishes: fine lines, wrinkles, pore sizes, age spots, sun damage, overall redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries. It has been proven to be an effective skin rejuvenating treatment for photoaging skin, as well as other skin conditions like acne and rosacea. The result is firmer, vibrant, and healthy looking skin.
How does it work?
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Diodes give off energy in the form of light. These little diodes are: compact, durable, powerful, bright, efficient, and produce rejuvenating effects on the skin. Independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA have shown that light applied in the correct wavelength improves skin cell renewal, stimulates the proliferation of collagen-producing cells (fibroblasts) in the skin, and increases the creations of collagen and elastic fibers by penetrating up to one inch deep under the skin without causing any thermal damage or downtime. This breakthrough technology does not use thermal heat or any kind of “invasive” process, but triggers the body to convert light energy into the form of cell energy for skin rejuvenation. As there is little to no heat generated from LED, there is no risk of tissue damage, making it one of the safest anti-aging solutions. Our skin care professionals will determine which LED Light Therapy is best for you.
Red LED Light TherapyRed 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. Red LED Light also targets the skin’s oil glands to reduce cytokines, a class of pro-inflammatory substances that play a role in chronic acne. It 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.
For the treatment of aging or photoaged skin, the recommended frequency of Red LED Light Therapy is 1-2 treatments every week for 6 weeks. Maintenance is recommended every 30-60 days.
Blue LED Light Therapy for AcneThe Blue LED Light 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.
The recommended frequency of Blue LED Light Therapy is 3 treatments per week for 2 weeks. After that, it is recommended that the treatments are cut back to 2 per week for 4 more weeks. Maintenance is recommended every 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual’s UV exposure and lifestyle.
Green LED Light TherapyGreen LED Light Therapy is an effective treatment for skin conditions such as: hyperpigmentation, sensitive skin, and rosacea. It has the ability to inhibit melanin production and diffuse redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries.
The recommended frequency of Green LED Light Therapy treatments is 1-2 20-minute treatments every 7-10 days for 6 weeks. Maintenance is recommended every 30-60 days.
Amber/Yellow LED Light TherapyAmber/Yellow LED Light Therapy is known for the treatment of: pain management, lymphatic drainage, and detoxification. This therapy works to purify the skin at the cellular level, leaving it healthy, smoother, and vibrant.
The recommended frequency of Amber/Yellow LED Light Therapy treatments is 1-2 treatments every week for 6 weeks. Maintenance is recommended every 30-60 days.
Is there any downtime after the treatments?LED Light Therapy is non-invasive, causes no inflammation, and requires no special post-treatment procedure.
Note that chemical peels and microdermabrasion may be applied before or after LED Light Therapy to complement the treatments. Light exfoliation and LED Light Therapy are an excellent combination to enhance results.
