LED Light Therapy
LED light phototherapy is areatment that uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to treat various skin concerns. We use blue, red & yellow wavelengths to gently & effectively treat conditions such as acne, rosacea, as well as promote collagen production. LED can enhance any skin regimen and be added onto your facial treatments. Ask us about it at your next treatment!
What can LED be used for?
- Active Acne
- Collagen Production
- Perioral Dermatitis
- Wound Healing
What conditions can LED Light Therapy treat?
• Acne: We employ LED, chemical peels and extractions to manage acne. Light activates chemicals produced by bacteria found in zits & pimples. This causes a chemical reaction that destroys bacteria.
• Scars & wounds: Red & yellow light promote wound healing, increasing collagen production, as well as alleviating any post procedure pain.
• Rosacea: Yellow & red light can reduce skin inflammation from rosacea. Note: vascular lasers do a much better job than LEDs for this condition.
• Rejuvenation & antiaging: Yellow & red light can increase cellular function in turn promoting new collagen & elastin production.
What exactly is LED light therapy?
LED Light Therapy is the therapeutic use of natural light. This gentle yet effective treatment emits specific wavelengths of LED light energy deep into the skin. Depending on the colour of LED, light can increase cellular function, accelerate healing, treat active acne and promote collagen production. This is why LED is used frequently for skin rejuvenation. I frequently utilize LEDs to speed up recovery following lasers & surgical procedures.
