LED Light Therapy
LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive facial treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore skin’s radiance.
What are the benefits of light therapy?
When used consistently, over time, LED lights penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.
A course of treatments offers corrective and long-lasting results, although you’ll be able to see a difference after the first session. Light therapy is also particularly calming, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed.
How it works
LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific skin benefits. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.
The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, or, in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath our medical grade light screens while the device does all the work.
Types of LED light
The treatment: Yellow light
For: Fine lines and wrinkles.
The low-down: The Botox of wavelengths, this should be part of your age-maintenance program. Yellow light reduces redness and wrinkle-causing inflammation while boosting circulation. It works by stimulating the rejuvenation process within your cells to improve the density of your skin (that’s the stuff that drops after the age of 30, causing those fine lines).
The treatment: Green light
The low-down: Green light targets dark circles, pigmentation, broken capillaries and sunspots. It also calms irritated or over-stimulated skin.
The treatment: Blue light
The low-down: Blue light eliminates acne vulgaris (the bacteria responsible for causing spots), while leaving the good bacteria intact. Blue light can be used on its own but it’s often paired with red light, explains expert facialist Debbie Thomas. ‘Red and blue lights have very specific wavelengths and, when used together, kill acne bacteria and help the skin to heal.’
The treatment: Red light
The low-down: Red light lies next to infrared at the end of the visible part of the light spectrum, and its wavelengths disable inflammation triggers. Inflammation is linked to acne, pigmentation and rosacea, which is why you’ll find this wonder light in most treatments.
