Be Stunning As You Age

LED light therapy facial treatments can help slow down your skin’s aging process without irritation or inflammation.  (The more you irritate the skin, the more it becomes inflamed, the faster you age and the more you areprone to skin cancer.)   So to have healthier and younger looking skin, you need to book an appointment with me for a light therapy facial to help repair and rejuvenate your face from the inside out.    

What is it and how does it work?  Well simply — LED is pulsed light that stimulates and regenerates skin cells to promote healing using specific light frequencies.  The spectrum is  between infrared and ultraviolet.  The light is converted to an electrical wave.  Since we are electro energy, the cells absorb the light (same with sunlight).  This light is converted to electro energy which creates more energy for cell division for rebuilding.  So you achieve skin rejuvenation fro within.   

And what happens to the skin when using light therapy —   Softens lines and wrinkles  — Increases firmness and moisture — Helps collagen production — Better blood circulation — Minimizes pores — Promotes faster healing — Reduces broken capillaries — Reduces pigmentation — Reduces redness and acne  and more.It’s great for anti-aging and acne.  At the same time the light helps to relax you, so it is stress relieving along with all the healing properties.     

And how long has it been around?   The Greeks back in 1500 B.C. first recorded the healing properties of light to restore health.   Of course the technology wasn’t there yet until 1903 A.D.  Dr. Niels Finsen, Danish physician, demonstrated the beneficial effects of various wavelengths to treat TB.  Now it is used in dermatology, neurology, physiotherapy, and more. Years of research have shown that light therapy has a powerful therapeutic benefit to living tissue.    Again in the 1960’s more was found out and NASA began using it and that’s how it came to be in Esthetics.  

Even after one treatment you can tell a change in your face.  For the best results to younger looking skin,  full facial treatment using LED and then 1 or 2 treatments a week using just LED for 6 weeks or more, depending on the skin.

Facials Improve Skin Health

Facials A Powerful Part Of Total Skin Care

Facials are a group of skin treatments intended to improve the cosmetic appearance of the skin. Facials also improve the health of the skin. In general, facials are thought to alter the texture, tone, coloring, or firmness of the skin in a way that many people consider attractive. A facial involves a variety of skin treatments, including steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage.

Facials usually involve the application of various mixtures to the skin, involving materials such as clay, seaweed, oils, and creams that all are applied to the skin to achieve different purposes. Some masks promote deep-cleansing, by penetrating the pores. Others can help heal acne scars or hyper-pigmentation, while others are for brightening your skin tone and complexion. Some masks dry or solidify on the face, almost like plaster. Other mixtures remain wet. A facial treatment can help revitalize, heal, and refresh your skin.

Facials can focus on improving one aspect of the skin’s appearance, or they can offer a general benefit. A facial may focus on removing blemishes, eliminating discoloration, firming the skin, or unclogging pores. Facials are generally categorized as:

  • European facial
  • LED light therapy facial
  • Mini-facial

Throughout history, people have sought to change the appearance of their face to fit the values of the time. In ancient Egypt, they used scented oils and ointments to clean and soften their skin. Oils and creams also were used for protection against the hot sun and dry winds. Cleopatra used black mud as a mask. She used sea salts to exfoliate and she finished with an application of essential oils. So, facials have withstood the test of time.

We are pleased to say that herbal products and natural medicines are more integrated into the mainstream than ever. More facial compounds now include natural and organic substances.

Warm steam may be applied to the face prior to the application of the facial mask. A variety of materials are then applied to your face, either by hand or with a brush or towel. The mixture is applied to the front of the face while avoiding your lips, ears, nostrils, and head hairline. The lips, ears, and nostrils are avoided because the facial mixture may irritate mucous membranes.

Mixtures contain a variety of ingredients, from mud to caviar. As a whole, the mixture is generally intended to improve the appearance of the skin, remove dead skin cells and open the skin pores. The attendant then leaves the facial mask on for a period of time, usually 15-30 minutes. Depending on the mask ingredients and duration of the application, the facial mask may dry or it may stay moist. Several different layers of mixture may be applied. Though the sensation of having a thick substance spread on the skin may be an unusual one, patrons should never feel any discomfort or pain.
