LED Light Therapy (Light Emitting Diode)

LED Light Therapy

Let’s talk about LED used as an ADD ON to most of my facial treatments.  LED light therapy was created by NASA in the 50s almost by accident.  Whilst in space they came to realise that this light had healing properties to the skin.  Thanks NASA, because of you I get to use this bit of technology for the various skin conditions that may be in need of correction. 

LED uses wavelength to improve skin health  There are seven colours to choose from depending on what your skin needs.  I tend to use the red, blue and green a lot at the Studio.  The red light targets collagen fibers, the blue for antibacterial to reduce acne breakouts and the green is used to address hyperpigmentation.   [wellbeing]

Although only introduced to the Studio last year, the use of LED for improving and maintain skin health has been around for a couple of decades and is very safe to use.  It is painless, safe and deeply relaxing.  As an Aesthetician working with my clients to improve and/or maintain healthy skin adding this 20 minute treatment that the majority of my clients include it on each visit. 

The popular treatments that are currently trending are

  • COMCIT Elite (Micro Needling) to increase collagen production improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles giving a fuller and smoother complexion
  • VWM Facial – to give the skin a deeper boost in addressing hyperpigmentation targeting the melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing pigmentation.  LED  green light penetrates and targets the bottom layer of the dermis where melanin producing skin cells are made.  As with all skin health treatments, using your prescribed home care with your  professional treatment are important in achieving the best results.
  • Probiotic Facial – blue light has an antibacterial effect on the skin.  For clients who have acne this helps to dry out excess sebum in the skin follicles leading to less breakouts.

LED therapy cannot be used if you are pregnant, suffer from epilepsy or taking any medications that cause light sensitivity.
