LED Light Therapy
What is LED Light Therapy?
Light emitting diode (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 therapy is also safe for all skin colors, and it DOESN'T cause any burning.
How does it work?
LED, or light emitting diode therapy, 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.
At Aesthetics Julie Edwards we use LED light therapy to help regenerate the skin from aging. It’s also used for 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.
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.
Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Therefore, they’re safe for regular use.
LED light therapy 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 therapy 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.
