LED Colour Light Therapy Facial
The LED light therapy has recently become very popular in the beauty industry.
Can LED lights really improve your skin you wonder? The answer is YES.
LED means Light Emitting Diode therapy. It has been around for decades. As a matter of fact, NASA used the technology in their plant growth experiments on board the Space Shuttle in the '80s.
Not long ago they found this technology useful in the beauty industry to treat everything from severe acne to fine lines and wrinkles. It's intriguing to say the least. It's also relaxing and very therapeutic.
It all seems too good to be true doesn't it? Just shine an LED light on your face and your problems go away? It turns out, there’s a powerful source of energy in those tiny little lights, and there’s a lot more going on below the surface of the skin that only science can explain.
Light waves are measured in nanometers. There are 10 million nanometers in one centimeter. So when we talk about therapeutic light penetrating the body, it only affects the skin which is our largest and outermost organ.
How Does It Work?
LED facial treatment is also known as Colour Light Therapy. Our machine uses seven different clinically proven wavelengths of LED lights. These LED lights penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin. It can fight acne-causing bacteria, and with regular use will kill this bacteria. It will plump up the skin, reduce wrinkles and stimulate the natural production of collagen. This can result in skin rejuvenation, tissue repair, and promotion of wound healing.
The wavelength spectrum can penetrate light waves deep into the skin and trigger a natural intracellular reactions.
Depending on the light, everybody's skin is going to respond differently.
The benefits of LED treatments are cumulative. You will see results over time.
What Do The Different Colours Do?
The yellow/Amber helps with melasma, spider veins and redness. Promotes lymphatic drainage.
The red infrared light reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates the collagen production.
The purple light is anti-inflammatory. It is used with the red together for healing acne and skin rejuvenation.
The blue light stimulates the production of oxygen, and kills the acne-causing bacteria without damaging the skin. Also effective for blackheads and whiteheads.
The green light is soothing. Used for anti-aging and hyper-pigmentation. Is anti-inflammatory, and speeds up healing.
The white laser light penetrates the deepest into the skin. Works to tighten the skin and reduce inflammation. Accelerates tissue metabolism and decomposition of brown spots.
It Sounds Like Magic, but there are a lot of studies that back it all up.
Who Is a Good Candidate For an LED Treatment?
Most people who are concerned about aging, or want to prevent fine lines and wrinkles, anyone with sagging wrinkled skin. Anyone who has acne or breakouts, chronic and inflammation. Anyone with skin discoloration. If that's you, then you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba amongst many others are all in favour of it. It is a great choice for anyone who prefers non-invasive skin-tightening treatments.
How Does It Feel?
It feels totally relaxing and therapeutic. The LED lights will feel warm on the face, but will not cause burns to the skin. Protective goggles must be worn because the lights are very bright.
LED Light Therapy is NOT For Everyone
Specific medications or conditions can cause a person to develop sensitivity to light or even have a seizure.
Herbs and over the counter medications such as Psoralen and St. John’s Wort can also cause sensitivity to light.
Check with your doctor before booking an appointment.
You Are NOT a Candidate
If You Have Any of The Following
If you have epilepsy.
If you are pregnant.
If you are breast feeding.
If you have an open wound or an active skin infection.
If you are currently on photosensitive drugs.
If you are currently taking Cortisone injections or any other kind of steroid injection(s).
Ask your doctor how long you should wait before you can have an LED light therapy treatment.
How Do I Book an LED Light Therapy Treatment?
Because it works so well for so many skin conditions like fine lines and wrinkles, and stimulates the natural collagen production, helps with acne, acne scars, inflammation, and builds collagen, making the skin healthier in general, it gives fabulous results in combination with treatments.
For that reason the LED light therapy is used as an add-on to achieve the best results. A facial or a peel is recommended before your LED treatment. We recommend a series of six Quick Beauty facial treatments with LED to get the best results.
Can I Use It At Home?
Yes. If you actually use it, it'll be better than not doing anything for your skin at all. It's pain free doesn't cause any damage. There are certainly very futuristic masks and gadgets on the market. The devices you use at home don't have the same strength as professionals use. However, in my experience, I find people often have the best intentions and plan on using it daily, but then life gets in the way and the good intentions fall by the wayside so the gadget just sits in the closet collecting dust. In which case you are better off to just book a facial with an LED light therapy add on and let a professional pamper your skin.
