What is Light therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a popular treatment within aesthetics by targeting specific skin concerns by a variety of different LED wavelengths. These often include blue and red light frequencies.
Red LED treats concerns such as wrinkles, scars and persistent wounds in the area. The longer wavelength stimulates collagen production promotes anti-ageing benefits, decreases fine lines, stimulates wound healing and improves sun damage.
Blue LED is used to treat conditions present on, or just underneath, the surface of the skin as it has a shorter wavelength. This is beneficial for treating oily acne-prone skin types as it kills the acne’s bacteria which aids in clearing blemishes.
Light therapy may address the following concerns:
- Oily congested skin types
- Reduces inflammation
- Psoriasis and eczema
- Skin rejuvenation
- Post-treatment additional healing benefits
