Led Light Therapy benefits...

Q. What is LED Light Therapy?

A. Photo rejuvenation or LED Light Therapy is the use of various colors of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that create an anti-aging effect on the skin.  Exact wavelengths of light emitted from LED's stimulate and energize cellular activity, which in turn creates collagen and elastin for Anti-Aging benefits. LED Light Therapy has become recognized as one of the safest, quickest, and most affordable ways to achieve younger-looking skin.  It's referred to by several different names including: Photo-Rejuvenation, Anti-aging LED Light Therapy, LED Light Therapy or Red/Blue Light Therapy. Unlike many technologies on the market today, LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of universities, medical labs and most importantly NASA.  There have actually been over 2000 reports and documents written on this technology. LED treatments are proven to work on all skin types.  There is an over 90% success rate for people using LED light therapy. LED light therapy is safe and completely non-invasive.  It has been used for years in numerous medical procedures, medical spas, the offices of aestheticians and dermatologists.

Q. Will LED light therapy help with acne or blemishes? 

A. The light waves stimulate the skin's natural healing process which helps in the treatment of acne, pimples and blemishes. Blue LED light can be helpful for acne by reducing colonies of bacteria responsible for acne and by exerting anti-inflammatory effects on the skin.



Q. Is there a significant difference between the benefits of blue and infrared/red light? 
A. The choice of light depends on what you are trying to accomplish. BLUE light comforts and soothes skin, and has anti-sensitive functions. It is used clinically to treat acne, as it is absorbed by bacterial acne, resulting in a toxic environment for the bacteria. RED light stimulates and activates skin cells and promotes blood circulation. VISIBLE red light penetrates to a depth of about 8-10 mm, and is beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, age spots, dry skin and is particularly effective in treating infections. INVISIBLE red light (infrared) is the longest wave length, and penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm, which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscles, etc.


Q. How long will it take to see results?

A.Every individual's skin responds at different speeds to LED Therapy. Some much quicker than others, depending on their current physical conditions, age, skin condition, diet, alcohol consumption, smoking habits, etc. Most people see initial results in 3 to 8 weeks, but many see results with the first treatment! Best results are achieved with a Series of Treatments.


Q. Will LED light help with aging & hyper-pigmentation (age spots) or scarring?

A. Hyper-pigmentation and scars fade over time from the use of LED lights. Infrared light is absorbed by the skin and used as a source of energy to stimulate fibroblast cell activity in the skin, which increases the production of collagen and elastin—the proteins responsible for your skin's tone and elasticity. Most LED lights produce both red and infrared wavelengths, and are effective for rejuvenating aging skin as well as treating acne and blemishes.


Q. Will  LED light help with dry skin? 
A. YES, using LED photo rejuvenation lights will help normalize dry skin.


Q. Can LED light treatment be used on someone who has been treated recently with Botox injections? 
A. I believe that although the light would cause no harm to the tissue, since it has a regenerative effect it might shorten the life of the paralyzing effect of Botox, so the person might want to avoid using the light around the injected areas until the Botox wears off.


Q. Will the LED Lights help with psoriasis?
A. The red and infrared lightwaves increase circulation, promote healing and help put moisture back into the skin, which benefits those with psoriasis.
