LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy is a non-invasive way in which we can treat acne, fine lines and wrinkles, general skin rejuvenation on the face and body as well as improve wound healing. LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, which emits light when electricity is passed through it. This light is low power and should not be confused with laser light. The wavelengths (colours of light) coming out of LEDs act like a key to unlock a receptor within the skin to enact change.
LED can be used alone or in combination with other modalities to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve redness and acne and rejuvenate the skin to give you a clearer, more radiant complexion. It is very safe, being one of the only cosmetic devices that has no contra-indications: it can be used on any skin type and part of the body as often as required.
Depending on the wavelengths (colours) being emitted from the LED will depend on what it is used to treat. Blue light is used for oily and acne skins, while red light is used for wound healing and rejuvenation. Red light will penetrate down into the dermis and stimulate our fibroblast cell to produce more collagen and elastin. The result of this is a reduction in fine lines and improvements in skin tone and texture restoring a firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
Blue light will reduce oil flow associated with acne as well as help to destroy P acnes bacteria that leads to pimples and pustules. Over a course of treatments your acne lesions will begin to reduce giving way for a clearer skin free of acne blemishes.
