What is LED Light Therapy?
LED treatments work by using bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA for wound healing) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin. This therapeutic light energy penetrates the dermal layer of the skin and gets converted into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that stimulates the cells to produce proteins and lipids essential for building and repairing the skin. Research has shown that LED causing photo stimulation will speed healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate fibroblasts and collagen production within 24 hours of treatment. This therapeutic and cell renewing process has been clinically proven to restore normal, healthy functioning of the skin.
Who should be treated?
LED is suitable for any skin, even the most sensitive. The key to success is in the strength of the light. With its 3000 individual lights for maximum and consistent coverage it can be used for a wide range of applications including skin rejuvenation, faster skin healing, acne reduction and skin detoxification. Led can be added to your monthly treatment or as a stand-alone treatment. Results may be observed immediately or after a series of sessions held twice a week for 5-10 sessions.
Are there any side effects?
This treatment has no downtime and no adverse side effects. LED emitting devices are completely safe as they pose no risk from over-exposure. It is a gentle, non-invasive, treatment that is completely painless.
What do the different light colours treat?
Yellow light: The yellow light stimulates the rejuvenation process in skin cells, so this light is ideally used for anti-ageing. It reduces redness and inflammation and increases circulation.
Green light: This is used in the treatment of pigmentation. It targets hyperpigmentation, dark circles, broken capillaries and sunspots. It can assist in calming irritated or over-stimulated skin and can be used in the treatment of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Red light: The red light is used to treat inflammation in the skin. Inflammation can lead to skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and pigmentation so the red light is beneficial to any skin type.
Blue light: This eliminates acne-causing bacteria while leaving good bacteria intact.
All of these lights can be used alone or in combination with each other to create a personalised treatment program.
What are the health benefits of this treatment?
Studies show that skin exposed to LED light wavelengths grows 150-200% faster. As LED therapy improves the cosmetic appearance of skin, it also promotes the healing of wounds, scars and burns. This is due to the skin having a high blood and water content, so it quickly absorbs red light to produce enough energy to cause a healing response from the body.
