What is LED Light Therapy
Light-emitting diode (LED) therapy is suitable for all skin types and is a completely pain free, non-invasive approach to treating skin concerns. It is a gentle way to wake-up the skin's natural responses with wonderful accumulative effects.
During the past 10 years, independent worldwide research from organisations such as NASA has shown that light applied in the correct wavelength stimulates intercellular communication, resulting in skin rejuvenation.
LED light therapy uses different coloured light emitting diodes to produce different wavelengths of light for therapeutic benefits:
ANTI-ACNE Blue light therapy - is sterilising, eliminates bacteria and is excellent for clearing oily and acne prone skin.
ANTI-AGING Red light therapy - calms and heals the skin, stimulates collagen production and cell renewal. It is ideal for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, hydrating the skin and overall face firmness.
REDNESS-REDUCING Yellow light therapy - is calming, reduces redness, swelling and inflammation. Very beneficial for rosacea and treating sunburn.
A combination of these lights can be used in one sitting to combat all concerns.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments varies with different skin types and conditions. Even after the first treatment you will experience smoother, more radiant skin. However a course of treatments 1 to 2 times a week for 4 to 8 weeks is recommended for best results, with a maintenance treatment every 4-6 weeks. Or increase the effectiveness of LED Light Therapy in the one facial with our Super Trio Facial or Dynamic Duo Facials.
What does the treatment feel like?
During the 30 minute LED light treatment you will receive a deeply relaxing hand or foot massage or complimentary nail paint. After the initial brightness of the light has subsided the treatment feels quite soothing and relaxing. There may be a slight warming sensation to the skin as the circulation is stimulated. You should not feel any pain or irritation. You are provided with goggles during your treatment solely to reduce the brightness of the light. The light does not contain any UV.
