LED Light Therapy
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy is growing in popularity in skin-care treatments. Using varying LED wavelengths, this skincare technique can help to:
- treat acne
- reduce inflammation
- promote anti-aging effects
LED light is also safe for all skin colors, and it DOESN'T cause any burning.
How does it work?
LED, or light emitting diode, is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue.
NASA originally developed it for plant growth experiments on shuttle missions and later found it to have promise for wound treatment.
Although LED light can be used as a stand-alone treatment, at Aesthetics Julie Edwards we use the treatment as a compliment to other therapies such as anti-ageing or acne.
Red or blue light frequencies are used based on the skincare concern. Red is primarily used for anti-aging, while blue is used for acne treatment. Yellow is to reduce Age Spots .
The treatment can be a course of single treatments, but we usually use it as an add-on to other facial treatments for best results.
Is LED Light Safe?
Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Therefore, they’re safe for regular use.
LED light doesn’t cause burns compared to other anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, dermabrasion, and laser therapy. It's safe for all skin colors and types.
You shouldn’t use LED light if you take Accutane for acne or if you’re experiencing skin rashes.
Side effects are rare, but may include increased inflammation, redness, and rashes.
