LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, which is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin, which emits therapeutic wavelengths (or colours) of light energy. Not to be confused with sunbeds or laser, the light therapy was originally developed to fast-track the healing of wounds and post-surgery scars. The rejuvenation of healthy skin, too, was a happy coincidence.
Different colour lights penetrate at different depth in the skin, therefore you’ll use more blue for an acne skin and more red for fine lines and wrinkles. So depending on your treatment when the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back). Thus, LED gives the cells a 'full tank of fuel' and these fibroblast cells start to produce collagen and elastin like when one was 20-25 years old.
The result is the complexion is plumped up with new collagen (which pushes the folds of the wrinkles out) and new elastin (which helps to tighten the skin and give it more elasticity). Another drawcard is that there's no downtime and it can be done on a lunch break.
In-salon treatments are recommended two to three times a week for a course of four to six weeks. Ideal for pre-wedding prep or before a big event, a session only takes 20 minutes. It's also an effective and pain-free approach to treating skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation and adult acne.
LED is great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone, reducing pores size, brightening the skin and rejuvenating the youthful look of your skin. It is the only aesthetic device that has no contra-indications of any kind. It is good for all skin types, colours and conditions. It is safe for the eyes and it cannot be overused. While there have been conclusive studies of the effectiveness of LED light therapy, of course always listen to your skin therapist. If you have a poor diet or spend to much unprotected time in the sun, it can take a little longer to see results.
For any facial booked for the month of June, you’ll get a FREE LED Light Therapy Treatment to try it out. Just use the Add-On Service when you book online or mention to your therapist when you book, we’ll deduct the amount at the time of payment.
