LED stands for light-emitting-diodes. First developed by NASA, it sends energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin. There are two types of LED light; Red light that is used for its anti-ageing benefits and blue light that is used to treat acne. LED is done as a standalone treatment but it is also used in combination with a lot of our clinical skin care because of its amazing benefits.
LED therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive procedure that only treats the needed areas while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. LED signals the body to naturally convert light energy into cell energy.
Red LED light increase cellular activity at the dermal level by targeting underlying haemoglobin. Cellular activity and energy levels fall as we age. With the delivery of the correct wavelengths of LED light, these dermal cells receive a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost from
the light energy. This safe, painless, natural healing process converts light energy within skin cells, very similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants. The thermal activity generated by LED enhances blood circulation, helping to delivery nutrients and cellular growth factors to the skin. It stimulates fibroblast and collagen production to strengthen sagging skin and wrinkles.
LED is painless and very relaxing, there is no down time or recovery time and it is one of the most effective and gentle ways to help rejuvenate and repair the skin.
