MORE ABOUT LED AND COMPARING IT TO MICRONEEDLING

How does LED therapy work?

LED promotes a natural photo biochemical reaction similar to plant photosynthesis. NASA’s Space Program proved that LED light therapy in the near-infrared wavelength promotes wound healing and and human tissue growth. LED reacts with the cytochromes the parts of the cells that respond to light and color. When cytochromes are activated, their energy goes up which then stimulates tissue growth and regeneration

What does LED light therapy do?

Energy delivered by LED enhances cellular metabolism, accelerates the repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells, and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the hallmarks of healthy firm skin.

How do I know it really works?

Scientifically proven in over 300 unbiased clinical trials to regulate cellular function with only one treatment through restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. Collagen production is increased through oxygenation and restoration of healthy cellular activity. Through lymphatic stimulation the skin is detoxified. Additionally, inflammation, particular to rosacea, pustular acne and injury is calmed.

How is LED therapy different from Micro Needling?

MICRONEEDLING:

Micro Needling intentionally damages the skin through micro perforations in the dermis thereby eliciting a healing response which then creates the production of healthy collagen. It refines the texture of the complexion, erasing fine lines and lessening wrinkles. It lightens hyper pigmentation, tightens large pores and firms the contours of the face. Though the face is anesthetized, there is some discomfort during the treatment with a downtime of three days. Best protocol suggestion is a treatment performed every 30 to 60 days for a total of six treatments. Cost: $350 each or $1750 for a series of six. Must be completed within a year.

LED THERAPY:

Through optimizing the natural cellular activity, LED therapy smooths skin texture, improves skin firmness and resilience, increases the lymphatic system’s function, reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and superficial hyperpigmentation. Reduces sebum in oily skin and controls breakout. Tightens enlarged pores. The treatment is for all skin types, is non-invasive, painless and without downtime. Best protocol are 30 minute treatments twice a week over a period of eight to twelve weeks. Don’t have time? Unlimited potential adding to your monthly facial treatment. Cost: $2.00 a minute. 30 minutes incorporated into regular facial treatment is $60. LED facial with cleansing and masque at one hour is $100.

Is there anyone LED therapy is not good for?

Women who are pregnant or suffer from epilepsy should consult their physician before beginning light treatments. Wait five days after Botox or cosmetic fillers.
