LED Light Therapy


What is LED Light Therapy?

The body is made up of cells that are generally capable of healing and reproducing on their own using naturally occurring cellular energy known as adenosine triphospate or ATP. When the skin is damaged, ATP stimulates cell regeneration to heal and restore the injured area. For different kind of body condition your skin determine how slow or fast cells may heal. Scientific studies also found that light can stimulate the production of ATP for better cell renewal also known as photo rejuvenation. Skin care specialists take advantage of the therapeutic effects of light by using LED (Light Emitting Diode Technology) to heal skin conditions during a light therapy session.

 

Why PhotonSmart LED?

Not just any light ray may be used to stimulate skin cells. PhotonSmart LED Light Therapy  is ideal for light therapy because it emits a low level power that does not irritate or burn the skin. PhotonSmart machine use visible red light, green light, blue light and invisible infrared light.
PhotonSmart LED Light Therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment used to treat a wide range of dermatological conditions, such as acne, sun damage, pigmentation, scar reduction and general aging of the skin.

High-output, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are used at different wavelength settings depending on the specific concern. For example, in the case of acne treatment, the LED setting used will emit light only at the wavelength that skin bacteria is highly sensitive too, hence dramatically reducing the level of bacteria which reduces the development of further acne. Alternative wavelength settings can also be used to generate photo-modulation, a process in which specific light energy triggers the skin's own cellular activity, aiding overall rejuvenation. LED Light Therapy is not only effective but is one of the safest and most affordable ways to achieve more even, younger-looking skin.

What to expect from the treatment?

Our therapist will assess your skin and discuss your requirements and concerns in order to deduce the most appropriate LED settings. Your face will then be cleaned and prepped before the LED machine is lowered to just above the face. The treatment is painless and will last for approximately 20-30 minutes during which you can simply lie back and relax.
