LED Light Therapy – how it works?

LED Light therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment for conditions like severe acne, sun damage, inflammation or skin aging. This treatment uses effective therapeutic light to stimulate cellular regeneration. LED light therapy doesn’t use ultraviolet rays, so it’s safe for regular use. Today, we use this therapy to help regenerate the skin and treat different skin conditions, but in the 1990s, LED light therapy was used by NASA (who originally developed this technology) for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions – the light was delivered into the body tissues to promote wound healing and to help regenerate damaged muscle tissues.

LED Light Therapy – how it works?

LED Light Therapy uses different frequencies and wavelengths, like red light, blue light, yellow light and green light, to reduce the damage from acne, age spots or wrinkles and to get the smooth skin you want. 

  • Red light is used to speed wound healing and improve skin texture. The light applied to the skin stimulates collagen proteins – more collagen means fewer fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will look healthier and smoother. Red light is also used to reduce inflammation and improve circulation.
  • Blue light targets the sebaceous glands (or oil glands) and helps you treat severe acne – this LED light kills acne-causing bacteria (Propionibacterium) and can be a safe alternative to antibiotics. If you face inflammation and breakouts on your skin surface, blue light can be the best solution. Studies show that blue LED light helps the healing of third-degree skin burns. 
  • Yellow light: is used to treat skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and sensitive skin.
  • Green light: is used to target age spots and hyperpigmentation.

LED Light Therapy – 10 minutes of treatment

It takes 10 minutes to treat your skin conditions with LED Light Therapy – depending on the problem you face, you will need one session of treatment or more. After you book a consultation, our practitioner will evaluate your skin condition and will recommend the best treatment to ensure the best results. LED Light Therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or within a treatment plan along with other procedures like chemical peels or micro-needling. During the procedure, you will wear a mask and safety glasses.

LED Light Therapy is a safe, painless and relaxing procedure, but you may expect short-term side effects like inflammations, rashes, skin redness or tenderness. Don’t worry, they will all pass and the results will start to show. However, individual results may vary and some people may need follow-up sessions to maintain smooth skin. It’s important to mention that people who take medications for acne or use different treatments that cause sensitivity to sunlight should not use LED light therapy. 

If you have a skin condition and you haven’t gotten the results you want after a rigorous skincare ritual or other procedures, you should try LED light therapy. Book a consultation at Deluxe Skin Clinic and get the silky smooth skin you want with a treatment that targets your problems! No more acne, skin aging or inflammation.
