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.
