About LED Facials
LED light therapy is a painless, relaxing, non-invasive skin-care treatment that has multiple benefits—particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne.
LED treatments work by using an array of bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin.
During LED therapy, devices send light waves deep into the skin to trigger natural intracellular reactions. Depending on the light, your skin is going to respond differently. If the light is red, your skin responds by building, strengthening, and maximizing cellular structure. Red light is also believed to target oil glands to reduce cytokines, which cause inflammation and play a role in chronic acne. In the case of blue light, specific wavelengths stimulate production of oxygen radicals that kill acne bacteria, blue light is used to treat acne, helps to purify the skin and soothe inflammation all without damaging skin.
LED panels are placed a few inches away from the guest face. Eye protection is also placed as the lights are quite bright. The skin is treated for about 20 minutes. At first, it feels warm, but guests report really liking the feeling of relaxation. The light doesn’t cause any burns or skin damage. It’s pretty much painless, and if you like lights, the colors can even be relaxing. We typically recommend light therapy every one to two days while working on fine lines, wrinkles and acne. For maintenance 1-2 times a week to keep break outs away or once a week to maintain the fresh look.
