LED Light Therapy harnesses the healing power of light to help a total skin rejuvenation.
The deep penetrating and soothing LED lights are targeted deep into the skin cells to help heighten their internal functions, photo-stimulate dermal blood flow and help induce faster healing, decrease pain, reduce acne and more. Our non-invasive LED Light Therapy can be an effective stand-alone treatment, as well as a useful addition to almost any medi-aesthetic treatment or procedure.
How many LED treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual goals, which will be discussed during your initial consultation. Typically, clients are treated two times per week over a period of time and many clients see and feel results after just one treatment.
How long does an LED treatment take?
Relatively short, depending on your individual treatment plan. Typical treatments are fast and effective, lasting between 10 and 20 minutes.
Can LED Light Therapy be used for post-surgery scarring?
Yes, LED Light Therapy was initially developed to aid in the recovery of wounds and post-surgery scars, without the harmful use of radiation. Now, you can undergo LED Light Therapy to assist with pain relief, superficial skin lesions, rosacea, burns or simply as an addition to your advanced skin care regimen.
Is there any downtime required after LED?
There isn’t any downtime from the standalone LED treatment. However, if LED Light therapy is an adjunctive treatment, there may be associated downtime to your other procedure. Your technician will discuss this with you during your consultation.
