Unlocking the Four Secrets of LED Light Therapy

led light therapy

LED Light Therapy is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue. Interestingly, NASA originally developed this technology for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions. It was later discovered that it had promise for wound treatment, and now it has become a popular treatment for skincare.

What is LED Light?

LED light is a medical device that utilises a combination of light therapy and wavelengths depending on the concerns you have. In addition, it is ideal for treating the following concerns:

  • Destroy the bacteria responsible for breakouts and pimples
  • Stabilise oil production
  • Regenerate the skin by stimulating cell growth
  • Decrease inflammation and redness in the skin
  • Heal and strengthen a damaged, irritated skin
  • Soothe and repair dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis
  • Reduce pain and recovery times
  • Assist with pain management 

To achieve that radiating, wow skin texture, our non-invasive LED light therapy works at a cellular level (especially great to fight active acne and rosacea). By using soothing, deep penetrating LED lights, this therapy targets deep into cells, heightening their internal functions, photo-stimulating dermal blood flow, and creating faster healing. As a result, your skin always looks rejuvenated.

LED Light Therapy for Younger Skin 

LED Light Therapy is the deepest penetrating medical-grade treatment that we offer in the clinic and is perfect for firming, softening lines, hydrating and plumping the skin. It targets the light receptors on our cells which then converts the light into energy. The cells are then fueled with all the energy that they need to be able to function at optimal ability.

The LED Light also triggers the lymphatic system, improving the removal of toxins from the treated area. Yellow Light Therapy is used to increase wound healing, collagen induction, skin hydration and the overall health of the skin.

LED Light Therapy is perfect to use in conjunction with Cosmetic Injections, Microdermabrasion, Clinical Peels or Skin Needling treatments to help speed up skin recovery and maximise the benefits from your treatments.

Sensitive skin, Rosacea, and Healing 

The concentrated red light is absorbed by the mitochondria in the cells and stimulates the generation of more collagen. It helps with a variety of skin conditions including redness, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

It alleviates the symptoms of inflammatory skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis. Reduce redness, swelling, flushing, heat and irritation on any part of the body. 

It also speed-up treatment recovery time by more than 50%! Post-treatment side effects, such as peeling, dryness and itchiness are also greatly reduced.

Pain Management 

Physiotherapists and sports medicine specialists are treating a wide variety of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries and pain with phototherapy. The benefits of light therapy are that they reduce the discomfort of pain and inflammation while promoting blood flow and the body’s own tissue repair mechanisms.

LED Light treats for Pain Management:

  • Increase blood flow to tissue to help repair
  • Relief for muscle and joint pain
  • Relief for Arthritis pain
  • Calm Muscle spasm
  • Reduce Muscle stiffness
  • Non-Invasive
  • Safe and risk-free with no downtime

Light therapy has been shown to have significant biological effects on humans. For instance, light therapy is used to manage depression as it increases endorphins in the body which is a feel-good drug. Several clinical trials have shown that certain wavelengths of light can improve wound healing, decrease joint pain, and back pain. In these trials, the light was directed at the site of pain. The investigators have shown  (LED) light produced antinociception (analgesia) and reversed neuropathic pain associated with several models of chronic pain.

The investigators believe that LED light is a safe alternative to pharmacological intervention to manage pain by stimulating the endogenous endorphin and cannabinoid systems.

Acne Breakouts with LED

The treatment that clears 70-80% of breakout acne which recommends having a red and blue LED Light weekly.

Bacteria that causes breakout is called p.acnes. This bacteria produces natural chemicals which are sensitive to the blue LED light by neutralising the bacteria that cause the breakout and acne.

The red LED is to heal and reduce inflammation and redness in the skin.

For best results, we recommend having the Blue and Red LED Light 2 days apart weekly for 8-10 weeks.

 In conclusion, you will see optimum results after 6 to 8 weeks with 2 sessions per week. Studies have shown complete clearance of breakout after 6 months.
