LED LIGHT THERAPY
LED Light Therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that uses the power of light to rejuvenate, repair and revitalise the skin.
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED Light Therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that uses the power of light to rejuvenate, repair and revitalise the skin. The technology of LED light therapy is a natural photo-biological reaction that is clinically proven to reverse the visible signs of ageing, clear acne and blemishes, and accelerate healing.
HOW DOES LED LIGHT THERAPY WORK?
LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light that stimulate specific responses in the skin. Red light offers amazing anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and healing benefits whilst the antibacterial action of blue light is proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of acne and troublesome breakouts.
Wavelength – 640nm, Skin penetration depth – 1-6mm
The red light promotes skin cell regeneration, blood circulation, pain relief and activation of active ingredients
Wavelength – 423nm, Skin penetration depth – 1mm
The Blue light promotes the destruction of acne bacteria and inhibition of sebaceous glands. The Blue light also prevents wound infection and creates relief of skin breakouts
Wavelength – 532nm, Skin penetration depth – 0.5-2mm
The Green improves sensitivity, hyper-pigmentation and enhances general well-being
Wavelength – 583nm, Skin penetration depth – 1-2mm
The Yellow light improves rosacea, skin redness, erythema and herpes zoster in early stages
Everyone can benefit from LED Light Therapy. LED’s emit a low level light energy that will not burn or irritate the skin, making it suitable for all skin types and age groups. Furthermore, there is no risk of unwanted side effects or down time that can often be associated with more invasive procedures.
Although the technology of LED Light therapy is over 100 years old, it has only become more widely available as an aesthetic treatment in recent years. LED Light Therapy has been shown in independent clinical research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. It is medically recognised and approved for a wide range of skin concerns and is rapidly becoming one of the most powerful skin care treatments in the industry today.
WHAT CAN LED LIGHT THERAPY DO FOR THE SKIN?
If the LED light is at the correct wavelength the light will encourage the cells in the upper layer of the skin to convert this ‘light energy’ into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), this is what the cells use to do their job correctly. In the dermis layer of the skin, fibroblast cells produce collagen and elastin. Also, collagen is what gives the skin fullness and elastin is a highly elastic skin cell that gives the skin its ability to bounce back into shape. Therefore, LED light can give the skin cells the ability to produce collagen and elastin like a body far younger than it actually is.
LED Light Therapy also provides treatment to compromised and reactive skin conditions. It can be used for Rosacea, Pigmentation and in the use of inflammatory disorders as an Eczema, Dermatitis and Psoriasis.
LED Light Therapy offers a pain free and effective way to achieve flawless, youthful and healthy skin. The visible effects are immediate; after just one treatment skin is hydrated, plump and radiant and any redness and irritation is calmed. A course of treatments offers dramatic and lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin. Furthermore, results of LED Light Therapy can be enhanced when used in combination with many other skin treatments such as Microdermabrasion, Skin Peels, Micro-Needling and Dermaplaning,
