LED Light Therapy

What is LED (Photo Dynamic Light therapy)?

Originally LED (PDT) , was discovered by NASA almost 40 years ago. They used it to stimulate plant growth and later found that is also help to repaid cells and encourages healing of injuries. So they began to use it on astronauts in space and found it to be a success. They discovered that differing light wavelengths (colour) effect the skins receptors in positive and varying ways.  Now, LED phototherapy is widely used to help treat additional skin conditions, repair injuries by stimulating muscle and bone tissue, and treatment for certain cancerous conditions. 

There are another names for this technology like: PDT, LED, Photodynamic Therapy, Red Light Therapy etc.

LED phototherapy is a light treatment that can be used to stimulate collagen production (reducing fine lines and wrinkles) and kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin, improving skin clarity—with no pain and no downtime.

LED phototherapy treatments are an excellent way to stimulate the skin to refresh itself by "super-charging" the cells and speeding up repair mechanisms. 

Because it is a minimal invasive procedure, a series of treatments is ordinarily required to get any visible results. 

An improvement may be seen after each session, however most benefits will be visible after a few weeks and more dramatically 8-12 weeks post course.


LED phototherapy is highly recommended after a Prescription Facial, Glycolic Peel, Enzyme Facial, Laser Treatment, Radio Frequency or Medical Micro-needling to increase results and accelerate healing.

Absolutely painless! Suitable for all skin types! 

 

 

How LED phototherapy treats acne?

LED can help to prevent and control papules, pustules, and typical acne quite effectively if done properly. The Light penetrates into the dermis and slows sebaceous glands that create oils in the skin that can cause acne. Non inflamed acne such as whiteheads and blackheads tend to respond less effectively. Multiple treatments are required. Treatments are typically done twice a week for a few weeks.
