LED Red Light Therapy
ED red light therapy (now available at our Gold Coast Beauty Salon at Bundall) is a painless, non-invasive treatment for lines and wrinkles, general ageing, wound healing, acne, problem skin and photo damage. It is beneficial for all skin types and has anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. It has been proven to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, smooth skin texture, improve skin elasticity, increase circulation and lymph drainage and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial hyperpigmentation. It is also an excellent treatment for sufferers of sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
LED red light therapy is suitable for all skin types and can be used in combination with skin peels, facials, microdermabrasion and laser treatments to further enhance treatment results. Some further benefits of LED red light therapy include:
• Minimises fine lines and wrinkles
• Skin is smoother, firmer and plump
• Evens out skin tone
• Increases hydration
• Soothes irritation and redness
• Stimulates blood circulation
• Accelerates the healing process
• Restores natural luminosity and glow
What is LED light therapy?
LED is an abbreviation for Light Emitting Diodes. LEDs are tiny light bulbs that emit non-thermal specific wavelengths of light from the visible spectrum. LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive method of light therapy that stimulates the skins natural repair and rejuvenation processes making it safe for all skin types and effective in the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions.
How does LED light therapy work?
The skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate a healing response. LED Therapy uses specific colour wavelengths of light that penetrate the skin at varying depths. The light energises cells to produce collagen, improve elasticity and increase blood circulation and oxygen flow while releasing toxins. This in turn stimulates the anti-ageing process, helps to normalise cellular imbalances, and improves skin tone and clarity. It is a natural biochemical reaction similar to that of plant photo-synthesis which triggers the body to convert light energy to cell energy. LED light therapy is recognised medically and is a clinically proven treatment. Laboratory studies have shown that when skin is exposed to LED light wavelengths, skin cells regenerate themselves on average 150% to 200% faster and hydration can be increased by up to 600%.
How many treatments are required?
An LED light treatment simply involves exposing the client’s skin to the beneficial light for 20 to 30 minutes. The number of treatments required can vary with skin type and condition. A single session is an ideal ‘pick me up’ however, a course of treatment is recommended for longer term results. As LED light therapy will not damage the skin there is no limit to the amount of treatments that can be taken and is an ideal all year round treatment.
How safe is the treatment?
LED therapy is a gentle, heat free treatment that does not contain harmful ultraviolet wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue. It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, colours and conditions and there is no downtime or risk of unwanted side effects.
