LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy treatment is included within a range of our skin treatments but can be also used as a stand-alone treatment as well as an add on.
LED light therapy is a gentle, non-invasive way to improve the condition of the skin. It is clinically proven to help build collagen and elastin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It kills acne bacteria for the management of acne skins and promotes wound healing. It also has the ability to help relive muscle and joint pain.
See the results of a one off treatment however, a course of treatment is advised for the best results.
Cleared by the FDA for pain management and skin care treatments, our LED light therapy device uses specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells for enhanced skin appearance and pain relief.
The LED light therapy device can effectively treat
- Skin Concerns, such as Aging & Acne
- Promotes wound healing
- Relieves muscle and joint pain
- The design of the device allows it to be flexible and can be applied to any part of the body
Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions including skin and pain.
The absorbed energy is then used to improve cellular performance. Red light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LEDs) devices or cold lasers, and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. This clinically validated technique is gaining greater and greater acceptance in main stream medicine by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons as a non-invasive therapeutic modality for the treatment and healing of skin and wound conditions and by pain professionals for pain relief.
Phototherapy, or LED red light therapy, has been widely researched and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research papers from prestigious institutions around the world. Other terms by which light therapy is referred to are photobiostimulation, photobiomodulation, photomedicine, LED light therapy, low-level light therapy (LLLT), red light therapy, cold and soft LASER therapy. All terms are correct, have the same meaning and are used to describe the delivery of light energy to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions.
LED red light therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, require no recovery time, and can be used safely on all skin types.
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural bio stimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that light emitting diode (LED) or phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne prone skin, skin tone, texture and clarity, decrease under eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with arthritis.
Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED phototherapy source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in our skin and increase the rate of wound healing.
Using light therapy devices is very relaxing. Your therapist will make sure you are in a comfortable and restful position and wrap the treatment area with the LED light therapy device. Protective eyewear will be applied. A single session lasts approximately 30 minutes. Most patients experience immediate results and leave with their skin feeling like it is glowing. Stiff, sore and painful joints may experience improvements with one to three sessions. Keep in mind that results vary from patients to patient depending on the severity of the condition and adherence to protocols.
