LED light therapy is a non-invasive and effective skin treatment for wrinkles, acne, sun damage, dark spots and scars.
LEDs or Light-Emitting Diode technology has been around since the 1960s and is based on the principle that living cells can absorb and be influenced by light. LED lights emit different wavelengths – blue, red and Infra-Red – to penetrate the skin at different depths for specific conditions. This penetration triggers the skin’s natural healing process which helps the skin to rejuvenate, regenerate and to reduce inflammation.
The benefits of LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is relatively quick, painless, non-invasive and has no downtime. It provides the following benefits:
- Improves skin texture
- Reduces skin acne breakouts
- Reduces inflammation
- Improves the overall functioning of the skin’s cells
- Boosts radiance and health of skin
- Treatment is quick (10-20 mins) with no downtime so you can resume your normal activities immediately
LED Light Therapy targets various skin conditions
We use three different wavelengths of light – red, blue and near Infra-red – to target and treat various skin conditions. We’ve seen effective results in treating a range of inflamed skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and rosacea to reducing the effects of sun damage and ageing. The different wavelengths will penetrate the skin at the right level to treat the following:
Red Light (635nm)
- Reduces fine lines & wrinkles
- Improves complexion, texture & tone
- Stimulates circulation
- Accelerates wound healing
- Stimulates skin recovery
Blue Light (425nm)
- Calms irritation associated with acne
- Targets acne causing bacteria
- Balances sebum production without drying the skin
Near Infra-Red (830nm)
- Reduces inflammation
- Controls erythema, oedema and bruising
- Provides pain relief
- Promotes wound healing acceleration post procedure
LED Light Therapy FAQ’s
How many treatments are required?
This depends on your individual goals. Often our clients may receive two treatments per week for generally 2-8 weeks depending on the condition we are treating.
How long are the treatments?
Normally each treatment will last between 10-20 minutes.
How long is the downtime after treatment?
One of the benefits of LED Light Therapy is that there is no downtime. However if you are using LED Light Therapy alongside another therapy, you may need some time away from the outdoors and sun. We’ll discuss this with you during your initial consultation.
