Uses non-thermal light to help improve skin. Red light stimulates Fibroblasts and is reknown for its anti-aging benefits. Blue light destroys P.Acne bacteria helping tackle acne and IR light is used for healing. Can be used as a stand-alone treatment or commonly added to other modalities to enhance results and reduce downtime.
Not to be confused with laser, LED light therapy was originally developed to fast-track the healing of wounds and post-surgery scars. If the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses for cellular function. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back). LED therapy encourages fibroblast cells to produce collagen and elastin.
There have been many conclusive studies regarding the effectiveness of LED light therapy, many of which were conducted by NASA where this technology was originally discovered and tested. Not just any light ray may be used to stimulate skin cells. There are harmful rays that can burn the skin or cause skin cancer. LED is ideal for light therapy because it emits a low level power that does not irritate or burn the skin.
With minimal contraindication, this treatment is ideal for all skin types and most skin concerns including:
- Acne, blemished and oily skin
- Skin texture and firmness
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Cellular rejuvenation, collagen and ATP production
- Reduces swelling, calms inflamed and irritated skin
