What Is LED Light Therapy?

LED (light emitting diode) light is a natural, non-invasive, chemical-free, FDA-cleared treatment for anti-aging and/or acne. Our device is clinically verified to activate fibroblast cells, leading to elastin and collagen generation and maintenance, the keys to healthy and younger-looking skin.

Our system allows for red light or blue light therapy. Red light therapy boosts our body’s Krebs Cycle, which generates cellular energy and ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). Good ATP levels in your body means energy to spend on collagen and elastin production. Blue light therapy kills bacteria and reduces inflammation, which helps clear acne.

LED Light Therapy is currently available as an add-on to all our facials or a stand-alone treatment for the face. It’s also recommended after Fraxel or laser treatments as a way to lessen discomfort and speed healing and results.

Is LED Light Therapy right for me?

LED Light Therapy is beneficial to all skin types. It may be an ideal option for those who do not respond well to medications for acne, and for those who may be sensitive to other treatments such as peels or laser therapies.

It may not be used on people who have epilepsy or who are pregnant. Some medications prohibit use, so please let your practitioner know about any drugs you use. For example, if you are currently taking steroids or cortisone injections, you should not receive LED light therapy.

How do I prepare for treatment?

Share your complete list of medications with your practitioner.

What happens during treatment?

Any makeup will be removed. You’ll wear protective goggles to shield your eyes. You’ll relax on your back with our device over your face for about thirty minutes.

Post-treatment care or downtime?

You may apply makeup or products, including SPF, immediately and return to your normal activities. There is no downtime.

How long until I see results?

You should immediately show a healthy radiance from the increased blood flow.

Over time, the processes initiated by this therapy will cascade to full potential with the regeneration of collagen.

How long will results last?

Without regular treatment, the aging process will in time naturally lower your collagen levels.

How many treatments will I need?

Ideally, LED treatments should be received every five weeks to continue improvement and maintain your higher collagen levels.

Can this treatment be used as part of a combo therapy?

Adding LED Light Therapy to skin resurfacing laser treatments is an ideal way to maximize their results.

What’s the Science?

LED technology was originally developed by NASA in tests for shuttle mission plant experiments. They later learned it has promise for wound treatment. These experiences lead researchers to develop LED Light Therapy for anti-aging, healing, and acne treatment.

LED lights do not contain harmful ultraviolet lights, which is what makes them safe for use as an aesthetic therapy.
