How Does LED Therapy Work? How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Many skin care professionals will recommend you schedule a facial every three to four weeks; however, it truly depends on your skin, your age and the environment in which you live.
LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. Diodes give off energy in the form of light. These little diodes are: compact, durable, powerful, bright, efficient, and produce rejuvenating effects on the skin. Independent worldwide research from organizations such as NASA have shown that light applied in the correct wavelength improves skin cell renewal, stimulates the proliferation of collagen-producing cells (fibroblasts) in the skin, and increases the creations of collagen and elastic fibers by penetrating up to one inch deep under the skin without causing any thermal damage or downtime.
This breakthrough technology does not use thermal heat or any kind of “invasive” process, but triggers the body to convert light energy into the form of cell energy for skin rejuvenation. As there is little to no heat generated from LED, there is no risk of tissue damage, making it one of the safest anti-aging solutions.
Nurse Jo will work with you to determine which LED Light Therapy is best for you from the treatment types below
OUR technology & THERAPY TYPES
The QuattroLux system from Universal Medical Aesthetics that we use at Harbour Medispa Wilston is a specialised light emitting diode (LED) phototherapy system that uses four specific wavelengths of light energy to restore skin’s normal and healthy activity.
The treatments use low level light energy from specific light colour light emitting diodes, to alter cellular functions and accelerate the skin’s self healing process. LED light sources for phototherapy have narrow light emission wavelengths that accurately match the absorption spectrum of targeted cells – more accurately than IPL. Unlike laser all skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types I-6) can be treated.
RED LED LIGHT
Improves the skin’s barrier function by enhancing its ability to retain key elements it needs to heal, regenerate healthy skin cells & stimulate collagen & elastin productions. Also targets the skin’s oil glands to reduce cytokines, a class of pro-inflammatory substances that play a role in chronic acne. It has many reduction benefits of fine lines, enlarged pores & broken capillaries. Skin will also appear smoother, more even-toned & firmer with each treatment.
BLUE LED LIGHT
Targets the strain of bacteria pivotal in causing acne for many people. The light causes the development of oxygen radicals that kill P. Acne bacteria without damaging healthy skin. Treatment includes a custom infusion of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory & acne-controlling ingredients to eliminate existing acne blemishes, control sebum production & prevent future breakouts.
GREEN LED LIGHT
An effective treatment for skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, sensitive skin, and rosacea. It has the ability to inhibit melanin production and diffuse redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries.
BLUE LED LIGHT
Amber/Yellow LED Light Therapy is known for the treatment of pain management, lymphatic drainage and detoxification. This therapy works to purify the skin at the cellular level, leaving it healthy, smoother and more vibrant.
