LED Phototherapy is very safe and comfortable light based treatment that is suitable for treating a wide range of skin concerns including acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, eczema and psoriasis.
This is a non-invasive treatment involving specific wave lengths of light to stimulate and activate cellular processes in the skin. Each wavelength emitted by the lights has a different depth of penetration and is designed to induce a particular response in the skin.
The blue light addresses active acne by destroying the acne bacteria colonisation in the sebaceous (oil) glands and reducing the inflammation of the skin.The red light aids skin healing and rejuvenation by inducing a very mild inflammation in the targeted area to produce an immune system response that helps increase skin cell turnover and regeneration.Both lights are typically used together to treat active acne and other combinations are available depending on the skin condition.
WHO IS A SUITABLE CANDIDATE FOR LED PHOTOTHERAPY?
Everybody can benefit from LED Phototherapy and there is no risk of adverse effects unless you suffer from a light sensitive condition.Unlike IPL and laser treatments, LED Phototherapy does not produce heat in the skin – making this a very comfortable, relaxing treatment with absolutely no downtime.This treatment perfectly compliments many other treatments by reducing inflammation and healing time.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE THE RESULTS?
Immediately post treatment, the skin will feel slightly plump and more radiant with a noticeable reduction in any redness or irritation.Long term results are usually very noticeable but will depend on the skin concern being treated and the specific course of treatments prescribed.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Most clients report a sensation of feeling very relaxed and refreshed after an LED Phototherapy treatment.Due to the gentle nature of the treatment, there are generally no post-treatment care requirements. General skin care measures should be taken, particularly minimising exposure to UV rays from the sun and using high quality home care products.Specific instructions will be given to you by the treating practitioner if necessary.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
There are generally no risks or side effects from an LED Phototherapy treatment.Protective eyewear is provided during the treatment although this is simply for your comfort as the LED will not cause any damage to the eyes.
