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.

LED is a non-invasive treatment option for the management of acne, wound healing, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles and skin firming. When combined with Photodynamic Therapy it can treat more severe sun damage, some skin cancers and stubborn acne.
Depending on your unique concerns, you may need 2 treatments a week for 4 – 6 weeks. LED as a standalone service takes less than 30 minutes, otherwise it can be combined with other modalities like PDT, laser, exfoliating treatments and facials. You will wear goggles over your eyes and the LED light will be placed over your face. Your skin will feel warm, but never hot. Treatments are very comfortable.
