LED Therapy

There are some skin conditions and concerns that are difficult to treat with at-home products and a routine skincare regimen; these imperfections require something more powerful, something that only a professional treatment can offer. At Eternal Beauty Skin Care Clinic, we offer LED therapy. This non-invasive, painless treatment uses different colored LED lights to perfect the skin and restore a healthy, vibrant complexion.

What Is LED Therapy?

LED therapy is a treatment that uses red and blue LED lights, both of which can be used on their own or in combination to address some common skin conditions and concerns. LED stands for light emitting diode, and this type of professional skin care treatment forces different colored lights into the deeper layers of the skin to improve it on different levels.

NASA initially began studying the positive benefits of LED lights in the 1990s regarding their ability to heal wounds in astronauts and promote cellular and tissue regeneration. The positive findings led to its widespread use in the cosmetic industry, both by estheticians and dermatologists, to address the most common skin conditions. This type of light therapy can be combined with other professional treatments and products for optimized results.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

There are many benefits to undergoing LED light therapy treatments. Not only is the entire process non-invasive and non-surgical, but it’s also pain-free. It uses natural methods to perfect the skin and can be combined with other skincare treatments. Other benefits include the following:

  • Results are visible with regular treatments
  • The treatment process is completely safe
  • Treatments are quick and take approximately 20 minutes from start to finish
  • Treatments are comfortable and pain-free
  • The process is natural and doesn’t use any harsh chemicals to accomplish treatment goals

Red Light

Red light is known for its anti-inflammatory and collagen-stimulating properties. We can use red light to target the epidermis, the uppermost layer of the skin. During the treatment, your skin will absorb the red light, and your body will increase natural collagen production. When your body produces more collagen, you’ll have smoother skin, which is good news for those who want to target the signs of aging.

Red light also increases skin circulation and has an anti-inflammatory effect, which can reduce redness. Not only will you achieve a healthier glow, but red light will also help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Blue Light

Blue light therapy is known for its ability to target the sebaceous glands, which are also known as the oil glands, located beneath the hair follicles in your skin. Overactive sebaceous glands contribute to acne-prone skin and an oily complexion.

One of the benefits of blue light is that we can use it to treat patients with acne-prone skin to target oil glands, reduce oil production, and limit breakouts. Blue light is also known for destroying acne-causing bacteria within the skin, which can help treat and prevent pimples and more aggressive types of breakouts, including nodules and cysts.

What Skin Conditions Can LED Lights Treat?

LED therapy can treat and improve some of the most common aging-related and cosmetic skin conditions. It can treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, and acne-prone skin. It can also accelerate wound healing, reduce the appearance of rosacea, treat actinic keratosis, resolve the symptoms of psoriasis, help lessen the appearance of eczema, and reduce hair loss.

How Do Treatments Work?

When you come in for your LED therapy treatment, we’ll cleanse your skin and place the appropriate light over your treatment area based on your primary concerns and treatment goals. You’ll remain in a relaxed, lying down position for the duration of the treatment as the device delivers red or blue LED light directly onto your skin. Once your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities without any limitations.

We can also combine LED therapy with other professional skin care treatments for enhanced results. It can be added to a facial, chemical peel, or other professional treatment to address additional skin concerns.

When Will I See the Results?

While you may notice some improvements in your skin after just one LED therapy treatment, it may take several sessions to achieve your goals. We schedule pre-treatment consultations to evaluate each patient’s skin concerns in person, and then we design a comprehensive treatment plan that includes light therapy to accomplish some specific goals.

Typically, patients need a series of treatments, usually weekly sessions for approximately one month, followed by maintenance treatments to ensure that they can maintain their results long-term.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Because of the nature of this treatment, most patients qualify as candidates. It’s non-invasive, safe, and effective. It doesn’t use any harsh chemicals and doesn’t cause any adverse reactions. Patients looking for a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that can significantly improve the health and appearance of their skin or want to address acne or aging make good treatment candidates.

However, there are some people who may need to avoid treatment for safety reasons, including those who are taking some specific medications that can increase sunlight sensitivity and those who have a history of inherited eye disease, skin cancer, and other medical conditions. We’ll ask you some questions to learn more about your medical history and your skin type during your initial consultation to confirm that this treatment is a safe option for you.
