Let us Light Up Your Life

LED light therapy appears to be a safe treatment for several skin conditions, including acne, skin aging, skin wounds, and other problems. If you’re thinking about having light therapy, you may have questions about it.

Does LED light therapy reduce wrinkles?

LED light therapy is mainly focused on skincare, promoting anti-aging effects and reducing inflammation. The purported benefits include an increase in the amount of collagen in the skin, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and other signs of aging.

How long does it take to see results from LED therapy?

Individuals respond differently to specific treatments (LED or otherwise) and satisfaction with your results may also be determined by the goal you’re trying to achieve. With regular treatments, however, you should be able to see improvements in four to six weeks.

How often should you have an LED light facial?

A course of six-to-eight LED light therapy treatments is recommended to improve your cellular function and be effective long term. A one-off treatment will give you an instant glow and supercharge your skin treatment, however, if you want optimal results, you’ll want the accumulative effect that comes from multiple treatments. Ideally this means having LED therapy once or ideally twice a week. And when starting therapy, we recommend three 30-minute sessions in a week after which we’ll assess a treatment plan moving forward.

Is an LED light therapy facial worth it?

Some research indicates that this therapy offers promising results, although you should not expect a 100% improvement depending on the condition of your skin and any damage. Additional treatments will likely be recommended to help achieve your goals.  

What do the different colors of LED light therapy do?

You may know that there are different colors used in LED therapy. Those colors relate to the wavelength of light being used and each wavelength works most effectively on a different skin issue.
