LED is an FDA-cleared device that has been shown to provide clinically proven results. In clinical studies, 100% of participants showed improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles in just eight weeks. As a stand-alone treatment or as an add-on, LED accelerates the skin’s recovery from sun exposure, poor habits, and environmental free radicals which cause pre-mature aging. The LED lights emitted during the procedure do not contain harmful UV light, so there is no risk of skin damage. There are no long-term side effects to the use of LED Light Therapy.
This 20-minute treatment stimulates collagen production, minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles as well as tones the skin. LED also produces increased blood circulation to produce radiant and glowing skin. Results are immediate with no downtime.
How does LED Therapy work?
LED (Light Emitting Diode) Therapy works similarly to the process of photosynthesis by absorbing light and converting it to cellular energy. This clinically proven treatment uses the power of UV-free wavelengths to energize skin cells and accelerate the body’s natural process to build new cell proteins and increase cellular regeneration.
During the appointment, the LED emitting handpiece is gently moved over your face, targeting specific areas of your skin for treatment. The entire appointment takes approximately twenty minutes to complete.
Why are there different colors emitted?
LED Light Therapy is a versatile treatment that targets a number of skin concerns and can be customized based on the wavelengths used. Light wavelength colors and their benefits include:
- Red: Minimizes inflammation and increases cellular circulation.
- Blue: Eliminates acne-causing bacteria, treating current acne breakouts and future breakouts.
What are the benefits?
Aesthetic benefits of undergoing this treatment include reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, destroying bacteria to minimize acne, decreasing the size of enlarged pores, increasing product absorption and deeply hydrating the skin.
What do I need to know before my treatment?
Your medical provider will thoroughly review what to expect before, during and after the treatment. Skincare products that can cause dryness or irritation, such as benzoyl peroxide, Retin-A, or products containing Vitamin A or alcohol, should not be used before your appointment for at least 24 hours.
What do I need to know after my treatment?
This treatment increases the absorption of skincare products and enhances their results. After the treatment, you may notice your product results are maximized.
Is there downtime?
No recovery time or downtime is needed post-treatment. Feel free to carry on with the rest of your daily activities!
What other treatments can LED Light Therapy be combined with?
This can be a stand-alone treatment or used in combination with other treatments, such as a Skinlogics Signature Facial, or Dermal Fillers depending on your aesthetic goals. For optimal results, your provider may recommend a series of treatments combined with a customized at-home skincare routine.
How long until I see the results?
It takes approximately two months to see the full results of the anti-aging treatment. If you are undergoing this treatment for minimizing acne breakouts, full results may take approximately four weeks.
Is it painful?
LED Light Therapy is non-invasive and completely painless. The slight warmth emitted from the LED device can actually be quite soothing and relaxing.
How do I know if I’m a candidate?
LED Light Therapy is beneficial for all skin types and tones. If you are interested in improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin tone and texture, acne and skin laxity, LED Light Therapy may be an ideal treatment option. If you have a photosensitive skin condition, this may not be a recommended treatment.
During your complimentary consultation, your provider will develop a customized treatment plan to address your skincare concerns.
