How Does LED Light Therapy Work?

LED Light Therapy

Professional LED light therapy is a popular non-invasive skin treatment for various skin concerns such as ageing, acne or pigmentation.

LED uses low-level lights to modulate cellular function, speed up wound healing, and improve the skin's circulation. It can also be effective for people with acne.

LED light therapy has been widely researched and tested globally and is supported by published clinical research, which has been peer-reviewed.

LED light therapy is also known as Phototherapy.

How does LED work?

When skin is exposed to LED, the light energy is absorbed. This energy increases the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

This increase in ATP powers metabolic processes such as synthesising proteins, for example, collagen and elastin, and the enzymes needed for cell repair and regeneration.

Treatment Benefits:

  • Boosts blood circulation and tissue oxygeneration

  • Aids lymphatic drainage

  • Increases collagen synthesis

  • Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles

  • Improves skin tone and texture

  • Reduces acne and breakouts

  • Brightens and evens skin tone while decreasing pore size

  • Helps prevent hyperpigmentation by reducing inflammation

  • It helps accelerate wound healing

Our system utilises NASA-researched LED technology and clinically proven wavelengths of RED (630nm) and Blue (415nm) and incorporates six different wavelengths in 7 modes.

Red LED:

Heals and rejuvenates the skin through its ability to stimulate collagen production in the skin's dermis.

Blue LED:

Our system is designed to reduce P. acnes bacteria which is linked to acne, and therefore reduce breakouts and spots.

Green LED:

Perfect for those with dull and tired complexions. Renowned for its ability to calm, even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of sunspots and other discolouration. It helps to brighten the skin.

Yellow LED:

Great for skin rejuvenation. Yellow LED increases blood circulation and, therefore, skin oxygen levels.

Orange LED:

Great for red and sensitive skin and works as a detoxifier for the skin. Known for its calming and soothing effects.

Purple LED:

This combines the benefits of both red and blue light therapy. A good option for adult acne and premature ageing. It can help treat active breakouts and prevent future breakouts. Helps to plump the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Combining LED with other treatments

LED Light therapy can be combined with other facial treatments and is an excellent add-on to chemical skin peels, microneedling and skin boosters.

It's dynamic and powerful enough to be effective as a stand-alone treatment, having 1200 LED lights.

The verdict!

I have to be honest; I have been sceptical of such devices and their efficacy, more so recently, as nearly every online Health & Beauty store sells its at-home version!

This is a treatment I'd heard of but didn't understand how it works and the impact it has on the skin without prior treatment.

I have used this LED therapy on both patients that have had a facial treatment and those that haven't - it has shown amazing benefits for both.

Following microneedling, it immediately calms the skin, reduces redness, and has been shown to increase the speed of healing compared to microneedling alone.

On freshly cleansed skin, it immediately brightens and refreshes the complexion, it's a 10/10 from me, and I love to see the benefits it gives patients with instant results.

Did you know you can book this treatment without having any other facials? We offer it as a one-off or a course in LED light therapy; it takes just 20 minutes and can be done during your lunch break.

Don't forget we're open Tuesday and Wednesday late nights if you fancy popping in after work.
