Light has long been known to have health benefits. LED is a state -of-the-art instrument using LED pulse light to stimulate and regenerate skin cells and promote healing using specific light frequencies.

The inherent safety with LED means that treatments are without pain or discomfort and there is no recovery period or “downtime”.

Forty years of independent research have shown that Light Therapy has powerful benefits to living tissue. One example is the practice of “light-treating” babies for jaundice, a common condition of newborns.

Skin cancer researchers have noted that a single red frequency, combined with a topical ALA solution kills certain types of irregular cells. Researchers also noted that LED stimulated skin tissue to regenerate and improve the appearance of the skin. Circulation is increased and fibroblastic activity, collagen production and healing are promoted. This effect has produced very positive results in the improvement of rosacea.

In space, the weightless environment slows cellular growth, in part because it depends on gravity. NASA research examined the use of LED to penetrate deep into tissues and found it stimulated cell growth and promoted healing in zero-G environments.

LED assists gradual healing by increasing blood circulation and lymphatic activity. Blue LED Light Therapy has proven very effective against more difficult acne cases, where ongoing acne treatments have stalled. In clinical studies, blue light has been shown to generate singlet oxygen which attacks the bacteria that causes acne.

Note: Chemical peels and microdermabrasion may be applied before or after LED to complement the treatments. Exfoliation together with Light Emitted Diode are an excellent combination.

As with any skin care procedure, clients need to be aware there are not quick fixes or “miracle cures”. This is not a “facelift”, but noticeable results can be achieved, along with effective home care.

LED IS NOT FOR EVERYONE - If you suffer from any of the following - Light Emitted Diode is not for you.

  • Some Medications are photo-allergic - eg Tetracycline
  • Pregnancy - studies have not sufficient assessed the risk to pregnant women so therefore Treatment is not recommended.
  • Epilepsy - certain light can trigger a seizure.
  • Thyroid conditions - if you are on thyroid medication or suffer thyroid condition.
