LED stands for light-emitting diode. This is a type of therapy that has grown in popularity lately, as it promotes anti-ageing effects, reduces inflammation, and treats acne. It uses different degrees of LED wavelengths, depending on the skin issue. Light is used in the visible spectrum, including red, amber, yellow, and blue, as well as beyond the visible spectrum, so that different depths of the skin are penetrated. The great thing about this treatment is that it is adapted to suit your specific skin goals, for example, blue tends to be used for acne treatment, whereas red light is usually used for anti-ageing.
LED light devices typically come with different wavelengths of light, including red, amber, green, yellow, and blue, which the receptors in the skin can absorb. The light will act as a source of energy, which can catalyse the renewal of tissues in your skin. Each spectrum or colour will correspond to a certain target treatment in your skin. The depths of the penetration will also dictate the different biological effects.
Each frequency of light is going to target specific areas, therefore, solving specific skin conditions. This type of therapy is mainly noted for the following benefits:
varies per patient
There are some medications that you cannot take if you’re having LED light therapy. For example, you should not have this treatment if you take Accutane. The best thing to do is to speak with one of our specialists who will advise on whether or not this treatment is right for you.
The procedure will typically take around 20 minutes at a time. You will usually have this treatment once a week for a period of around ten weeks. After this, you will only need to have treatment once every few months.
There are a lot of DIY kits available today. However, we do not recommend using these. You’re not going to be able to achieve your desired results if you’ve not had training and do not know how to target skin problems effectively.
Light therapy can start to improve your skin condition within a matter of a few days. For some people, though, it can take several weeks, so do not be alarmed if you do not see results right away.
Unlike other forms of lighting, LED does not emit polluting radiation. Therefore, LED light will not pose a health hazard. This is why it is considered one of the safest skin treatments.
You cannot ‘overdose’ on this treatment. However, it is critical that you follow the recommendations that your practitioner provides regarding the number of treatments that you should have.
We tend to recommend green light therapy for pigmentation. The best thing to do, though, is to book a consultation. We will be able to assess your skin and listen to your skin goals. We can then make our recommendations based on this.
No – light therapy does not use UV light, and so there is no risk of your skin colour changing.
No, LED light therapy does not hurt, as it is a fully non-invasive treatment. You may feel a little bit of warmth.
Light therapy is great for all skin types! It is especially beneficial for rosacea.
LED light therapy can cause damage to the eyes. This is why we will always provide you with goggles to wear during your treatment. This will ensure that you do not experience any problems with your eyes because of the treatment. This is another reason why it is not advisable to do this treatment at home. We have also found that some goggles are insufficient for the purpose, so we recommend caution.
LED light therapy has long been used to help with skin conditions. In fact, it was first used in the 1990s by U.S. Navy SEALs to help heal wounds quickly, regenerating the damaged muscle tissues. Since then, LED light therapy has been researched for various aesthetic situations. It is mainly noted for increasing tissues and collagen. This can smooth your skin, helping to reduce the appearance of damage from wrinkles, acne, and age spots.
The cost of this treatment is going to depend on the area of skin that is being treated. You can also combine this with other treatments, which can also have an impact on the price. This is why the best thing to do is give us a call and book a consultation. We will be able to give you our expert advice on the best treatment for you and we can provide you with a price for the service.
During your consultation, we will advise you on the best treatments and products for you to use at home.
