What is LED?

LED therapy is a highly versatile skincare treatment that uses various wavelengths of colored light such as red, blue or infrared light to treat a multitude of different skin concerns. Its popularity stems from its ability to treat a multitude of common skin concerns from reducing acne and fading pigmentation and sun-damage, right through to redness reduction and anti-ageing concerns. It varies from other forms of light therapy as it does not use ultraviolet rays which may be harmful to the skin, making LED not only an effective treatment option, but a safe one.

How does LED light therapy work?

This skincare treatment works by using LED machines to distribute coloured light in varying wave lengths onto the skin. Each different colour and wavelength causes its own unique corresponding reaction and thus each effects the skin in a different way. LED treatments are non-invasive, pain-free, safe and completely comfortable. A stand-alone LED treatment simply requires lying down directly under the machine, whilst the LED light therapy colours do their magic work! Although LED works wonderfully as a stand-alone treatment, it also layers wonderfully with other services and depending on your skin condition, often your therapist may combine your LED treatment with other processes to achieve a well-rounded service.

Why should you use LED?

An LED light therapy treatment is an effective way and safe way to treat various common skin concerns such as rosacea, acne and anti aging. The LED light therapy machines will stimulate cellular activity within the skin after regular treatments to help you achieve the skin results you've dreamed of!
