LED THERAPY AND WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOUR SKIN

LED (light emitting diode) therapy is now a common, popular treatment in many spas because of its abilities to correct an array of skin conditions. Original studies were done a few decades ago in which NASA found that it heals human tissue and improves tissue growth by increasing energy in the cells.

By releasing light to stimulate different responses at precise depths of the skin, it effectively and painlessly helps heal and rejuvenate it.

The machine I’ve brought in emits three different lights with colors that correspond to these different depths (nanometer). We all have what’s called chromophores in our skin which is a color component such as blood or melanin. LED is seeking these chromophores and when the colored light reaches a specific nanonmeter, it triggers a reaction.

RED LIGHT increases cellular turnover processes and stimulates circulation. This is the best option for anti-aging because it produces collagen and elastin making sure the skin stays tight and plump. It also smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles.

GREEN LiGHT is ideal for anyone with sensitive skin or hyper-pigmentation. It reduces redness , detoxes, calms and soothes the skin as well as the mind.

BLUE LIGHT helps those with acne. It kills bacteria to control and prevent future breakouts.

WHEN DO YOU SEE RESULTS?

For maximum benefit, a 20-30 minute session is suggested. Often time clients feel or see an improvement with one or two uses.  This is versatile modality and can be used as a powerful stand-alone treatments or as an add-on to facials, chemical peels, etc. Results are cumulative, so I recommend at least 6 treatments 1x/week in the beginning.

IS IT SAFE?

The best part is that there are no contraindication, side-effects or downtime. Your eyes are fully secured before the procedure with googles. It’s important to mention that the lights are not ultraviolet rays and don’t pose any threats in regards to the risks of skin cancer. This is also safe for those who are pregnant, trying to, or nursing.

I can’t wait to use it myself and track my progress, especially with my surgical scars.
