What is LED light therapy?
LED light facial rejuvenation is the latest technology for non-invasive modalities that can improve skin in many ways. When used with a specific light wavelength, LED light can penetrate the skin's surface and go to the level where it's needed most.
For acne that means on and just below the surface to reduce inflammation and kill the P. acnes bacteria which is responsible for causing acne and breakouts.
For wrinkles that means going a bit deeper to where the collagen is formed and increasing collagen production, decreasing inflammation and restoring the skin's balance. This improvement does NOT STOP once your treatments are over, but continues for up to 12 months!
A minimum of two 30 minute treatments a week for 4-6 weeks is usually sufficient to get desired results.
I only use the Celluma brand LED as it is the only LED light that has been tested and FDA approved for wrinkle reduction, acne, and healing. Hand held lights are not powerful enough to deliver the proper penetration, nor are they large enough to treat the skin for 30 minutes at a time, which is the required time to be effective.
Here are some before and after photos.
LED is used for facial rejuvenation (reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, plump areas)
and for acne.
