What is LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy began as NASA technology. LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes) discharge energy in the form of photons and emit different wavelengths corresponding with specific colors. From the early 1990s, a NASA-sponsored research center helped develop the technology and they discovered that it could also help heal wounds on individual skin. This proved useful for astronauts on long missions because wounds cure in distance.
Coming back to earth, the latest LED Light Therapy technology exposes your skin to various wavelengths of light, including red and blue, to address a wide range of concerns.
How does LED Light Therapy work?
Our LED light therapy works well at any cellular level. The soothing, and inner penetrating LED lights focuses deep into the cells increasing their photo encouragement dermal blood flow, internal functions, as well as creating quicker healing so that your skin looks young always.
This powerful property is great for treating acne, reducing oil production, preventing breakouts, and supplies an option for the treatment of psoriasis and eczema. When used over time, it helps permeate your skin at several depths, such as reducing wrinkles, plumping skin, and fighting bacteria.

Procedure for LED Light Therapy
Our non-invasive LED Light Therapy is a good and a relevant addition to nearly any medi-aesthetic procedure or treatment such as microdermabrasion and injectables.
In our clinic, we start with the cleansing of the skin that includes a Lactic brightening peel and extractions if needed. Then we go onto the complex side of the facial skin and finish with a full session (20 minutes) of LED. All LED treatments are effective and fast and with about four special available LED lights (green, yellow, red and blue), your treatment can be focused to match all your personal skin objectives.
