What is LED Illumination Therapy?
LED illumination therapy is a painless, non-invasive facial treatment that uses colour wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin at varying depths. This stimulates the anti-ageing process, helps to normalise cellular imbalance and improves skin tone and clarity.
How does it work?
The skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to kick-start a number of processes which help to rejuvenate the skin. LED illumination therapy uses specific colour wavelengths of light to penetrate the skin at different depths – this stimulates a healing response making skin regenerate faster and activates collagen-producing cells. These processes improve skin elasticity, increase blood circulation and oxygen flow while releasing toxins that slow down the production of enzymes which break down collagen. Together, these processes create fresher-looking complexions.
The Red LED light is used for anti-ageing treatments due to its cell regenerating properties – it has proven to stimulate the production of collagen, improve skin elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial hyperpigmentation, improve blood circulation, increase hydration naturally and improve overall skin tone and texture. The RED light is also recommended following invasive skin treatments such as Micro-needling to stimulate a healing response.
The Blue LED light is used to target breakouts – perfect for those who suffer from acne and congested skin. Its powerful anti-bacterial properties kill bacteria in the skin, fights infection, shrinks enlarged pores and regulate oil production- all of which help to reduce active acne.
The Blue light also promotes calming and relaxation – its deep cleansing properties help to decongest and purify acne and problem skin, calm redness and improve pigmentation following a breakout. LED illumination therapy is a great alternative to medication!
How long do results last?
The number of treatments you will need can vary with skin type and condition.
One session is an ideal ‘pick me up’ for the skin.
A course of 3 treatments is recommended to achieve optimal results.
LED Illumination therapy is an excellent addition to use following micro-needling and dermaplaning to further enhance treatment results.
