LED Light Therapy
How does LED light therapy assists our skin?
Our skin benefits from specific wavelengths and outputs of light to stimulate the cellular processes and the production of collagen and elastin.
Our Medical LED light therapy emits a red light (630nm) which is a wavelength that is absorbed by cells called fibroblasts in our skin. These fibroblasts produce collagen and elastin, and when stimulated by red light, will do so at spectacularly accelerated rates reducing the appearance of ageing.
Infrared (IR) 880nm light energy penetrates tissue at a greater depth than the Blue and Red light. A large percentage of this light travels 8-12cm and beyond. Infrared energy is known to heat tissue and its effects are well documented for therapeutic pain management.
For cosmetic applications, IR increases cell membrane permeability; facilitating the absorption of nutrients and removal of toxins and waste as well as the biological effects such as an increase in collagen bundles and elastin fibers. This is increased when Red and Infrared energy is used in conjunction with each other. Our Light Programs specifically alter between both lights to achieve the best results for you in both stimulating collagen bundles and tightening effects.
How many treatments are required?
The treatment courses usually involve a course of 10 treatments over a 5-6 week period. Monthly to 2nd monthly treatments will then ensure you maintain and assist treatment results.
