What is LED red light treatment?
How our skin specialists can help rejuvenate your skin with a LED red light treatment:
LED light treatment is a non-invasive light treatment that helps to promote healing and rejuvenate the skin without any downtime. Our therapists use it as a standalone treatment for acne or inflammatory conditions as well as in conjunction with our more invasive skin treatments to speed up healing time and promote collagen production.
Improve skin texture with non-invasive LED red light treatment.
LED light treatment works on the basic premise that different light colours deliver concentrated light and penetrate the skin at different depths, which in turn triggers a reaction within the skin cells without the risk of trauma or thermal damage. Blue light is generally used to kill bacteria in acneic skins reducing breakouts whereas the red light is used more to aid with healing and stimulate collagen production.
How does LED red light treatment work?
LED (Light Emitting Diode) light treatment works by delivering concentrated light, using different wavelengths, to deliver healing properties and induce changes in the skin to target various skin conditions without damaging the tissue. Each wavelength will penetrate the skin at a different depth and cause a different reaction within the skins cells. The red light induces a mild inflammation of the target cells and sets up an immune response that helps to regenerate these cells, producing new collagen and reducing inflammation. The blue light works by killing p acnes bacteria that live below the surface of the skin and is responsible for acne breakouts.
What are the benefits of undertaking LED red light treatment?
The benefits of using LED light treatment is that is can harness the properties of a range of wavelengths to optimally deliver concentrated light without the risk of trauma. It can help to improve healing times, treat active acne and promote skin rejuvenation. It can be used as a standalone therapy or in conjunction with other treatments.
How long does a LED red light treatment usually take?
LED light treatments can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes.
What conditions are typically treated with LED red light treatment?
LED light treatment can be used for various skin conditions due to its different wavelengths. It can be used for skin rejuvenation, post laser or chemical peel to help speed up the healing process, for any inflammatory skin condition and acne.
