LED Light therapy for Acne
LED light therapy is a successful option for adolescent and adult acne treatment and acne scarring that delivers impressive skin rejuvenation results. Light Therapy is the most effective non-prescription, drug free alternative available and is now considered the leading acne treatment in the United States!
Our Light System allows us to treat multiple areas at once. We often see clients who have acne on their face, necks, chest and backs and it was extremely important for us to find a system that could treat multiple areas.
An individualised program can be formulated for;
- Adolescent and adult acne
- Acne scar treatments
How does LED light therapy assist in the reduction of acne?
Using our specific light treatment, the area of affected skin is exposed to Blue light (417nm), which is quickly absorbed by acne-causing bacteria. Molecules within the bacteria then react by producing singlet oxygen and free radicals that in-turn destroy the P. Acnes bacteria. Once the body has been exposed to Blue light, the use of Red light therapy helps to restore normal cellular function and promotes healthy skin rejuvenation.
Red light therapy stimulates the skin and promotes the production of the energy source for cells known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). By increasing ATP, the production of elastin and collagen also increases and normal cellular function can be restored. There is an increase in circulation and reduction of inflammation within the skin. When Blue light therapy and Red light therapy are used in conjunction with each other; they are much more effective at targeting inflammatory acne.

LED Light Therapy for skin rejuvenation Red and Infrared Light Therapy
In recent years, the trend toward non-surgical procedures to rejuvenate the skin has increased rapidly as clients look for safe, effective alternatives with no downtime. With so many non-surgical treatments available, it can be hard to know which one is the best for you. Light Therapy remains one of the hottest non-ablative, non-invasive, and painless skin care therapies available to date. What makes this system so special is that we can now rejuvenate the skin on a cellular level.
Through an innovative combination of Red Light Therapy and Infrared Light Therapy, an individualised treatment program can be designed for you for the following;
- Anti-aging treatments
- Stretch marks/Flaccid Skin
- Inflammatory skin conditions
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 aging. This wavelength will also stimulate the cells that produce hylauronic acid in our skin. Hylauronic acid maintains moisture in our skin and gives our skin a more hydrated, and plumper appearance. This treatment can therefore also assist conditions such as rosacea, inflamed or irritated skin conditions.
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 until it is less than 1% at 20cm. 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.
Light Therapy is also used to enhance other therapies such as microdermabrasion or peels and enhance the effects of botox and fillers. It is an excellent natural skin rejuvenation alternative that is both effective and a pleasurable experience.
How many treatments are required?
The treatment courses usually involve a course of 10 treatments over a 5-6 week period. As a stand-alone treatment it will make your skin glow, ideal before any occasion! Why not call and say hello to discuss this treatment today.
