Everything You Need to Know about LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy. What is it, how does is work its magic and is it really safe for our skin?


What is LED Light Therapy?

LED (Light emitting diode) is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses LED light bulbs to emit different wavelengths of light energy, that target deep into the skin cells for multiple skin and anti-aeging benefits. It is a painless and relaxing treatment that is cost effective with amazing results, safe for all skin types and colours.

What are the benefits?

LED has an array of different bright coloured lights, LED is usually used in combination with other Skin treatments for optimal results and is an ideal treatment to have before and after microdermabrasion and skin peels to help accelerate the healing process and maximise your treatment benefits, increases blood flow to skin tissue.

LED works harmoniously with your body’s own natural processes of synthesis and repair to restore an overall state of balance and wellbeing to the skin. Working with the power of light to make you glow!

Photo-rejuvenation uses LIGHT ENERGY to stimulate the skin’s own natural cellular metabolic processes, to heal and rejuvenate and, once triggered, these healing reactions continue even after the light is removed.

For the treatment of:

  • Ageing – sun damage, lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sensitive skin (anti-inflammatory)

RED light therapy is anti-ageing, specifically targeting more mature skin types, the light stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis, firming and tightening the skin. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect and helps to balance pigmentation.

The higher frequency BLUE light therapy is used for the treatment of acne; the BLUE light targets and destroys the acne vulgaris bacteria. It also helps to reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing process.

Can led light therapy burn or harm the skin?
NO! LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive natural therapy; it is 100% safe and painless. It is a relaxing and calming experience with NO adverse side effects or client downtime. Clients may experience a slight and comfortable warming of the skin as the LED Light energises the skin cells.

What is Hyperpigmentation and How can we Treat it?

What is Hyperpigmentation?

There are many types of hyperpigmentation, but the following are the most common:

Pigment spots such as age spots are caused by sun exposure. When there's dark discoloration on the skin, too much melanin has been produced. For this reason, they appear mainly on body parts that are frequently exposed, such as the face, hands and arms. They tend to be small, darkened patches of skin. Factors like the UVA rays in sun "turn on" your pigment-making cells called melanocytes, which then pump out melanin to protect your skin. While that means a tan for many, the process can also cause dark spots and patches to crop up in over-exposed areas. Sometimes, spots can take a decade or two to show up, so if you've got hyperpigmentation making an appearance now, the damage may actually have come from your child or teen years.

Melasma is often referred to as “the mask of pregnancy”, as it affects up to 90% of pregnant women. It occurs as a result of hormonal influences such as pregnancy and birth control pills, and causes dark and irregularly shaped areas on the face or arms that can be quite large.

Post-Inflammatory hyperpigmentation occurs when a skin injury or trauma heals and leaves a flat area of discolouration behind. It’s commonly found among acne sufferers, and can also be caused by cosmetic procedures such as dermabrasion, laser treatment and chemical peels.
