What is LED light therapy?

LED light therapy is a non-invasive, gentle treatment which is suitable for all skin types. The different wavelengths of LED therapy can penetrate to different depths in the skin to target various skin conditions from ageing skin to acne.

How it works:

We often associate exposure to light with negative effects such as skin ageing and photo-damage, but light also has many positive influences on our bodies.
It helps us produce vitamin D, provides energy and serotonin, encourages cell growth and can rejuvenate collagen in your skin. The spectrum of light is divided into those you can see, such as red and blue light, and those you can’t, such as UV and near-infrared.

The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amounts and the parts of that spectrum to which you’re exposed. Different types of light stimulate different responses, so while ongoing exposure to UV is very damaging, controlled levels of specific wavelengths of near-infrared, blue and red light are clinically proven to be beneficial in rejuvenating skin and resolving problem skin conditions.

LED light therapy is pain free and suitable for all skin types. Each treatment lasts for around 20 minutes and is usually part of a course – it is pleasant and relaxing experience.

What can be treated with LED light therapy?

As there are varying types of light, the treatment can be tailored to treat a range of skin conditions including:
• Ageing skin
• Pigmentation
• Rosacea
• Eczema
• Psoriasis
• Scars
• Sun damaged skin

What is involved in the treatment?

The treatment will start with cleansing and exfoliation of the skin.

The LED light mask will be placed over your face and colour wavelengths appropriate for your skin treatment will penetrate the skin surface. The light will stimulate your skin cells to encourage the heeling process.

A cool serum will then be applied with sunscreen. There is no downtime with this treatment and you should see some results immediately as your skin appears more radiant and glowing.

How long will results last?

Results should be seen immediately, however skin condition will improve in time as your skin heels and with the continued use of products within your treatment plan.

LED light therapy will show optimum results after a full course of treatment, however this differs between each individual. Every patient is different; skin condition, age and lifestyle are all factors.
