Led Phototherapy

LED is a non invasive light therapy that delivers outstanding results for all skin conditions and has been successfully been proven to restore youth to ageing skin, encourage cell renewal, calm red capillaries and is superior in treating acne.

Phototherapy is where light of specific wavelengths is delivered to the skin to stimulate and activate cellular processes deep within the skin layers. The Phototherapy machine uses LED technology to produce a range of light wavelengths to aid in many treatment applications.

LED is a scientific process that uses wavelengths in the visible spectrum to send light into layers of the skin to activate a reaction of cellular activity. Originally developed by NASA to improve wound healing in space has now become a very successful treatment in skin care.

Use the spectrum guide to determine the correct wavelength of light to bathe your skin in and will help you determine the correct course of treatments depending on the results your client want to achieve. Light therapy offers remarkable results over a period of time.

Frequently asked questions

LED Phototherapy is clinically proven for the treatment of a wide range of skin conditions and the most common skin concerns including lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, sun damage, dehydration, open pores, acne and blemishes, rosacea and eczema.
The number of treatments can vary with age, skin type and condition. With phototherapy the results are cumulative and improvement will continue even after the treatment has stopped. Treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended. Furthermore, as phototherapy does not harm the skin, there is no limit to the amount of treatment you can have. An individual treatment plan will be discussed during your consultation.

With phototherapy the visible effects are immediate. After just one treatment skin is incredibly hydrated, plump and radiant and any redness and irritation is calmed.
Results can last for several months following a course of LED Phototherapy treatments. However, as with any skin treatment, maintenance sessions are advised to ensure lasting results.  We find results lasting from anywhere between 6 -12 months. We recommend a course every year for optimum results.
LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive and pain free treatment that promotes a feeling relaxation and wellbeing whilst rejuvenating the skin. Exposure to the light can increase serotonin levels which in turn help to relive stress, tension and headaches. Any feeling of ‘heat’ is most often due to the stimulation of blood circulation.
The treatment times have been calculated to ensure optimum results. Darker skins may require longer exposure times to have the same level of effectiveness.
YES! It has been proven in numerous studies that Far Red to Near- Infrared (670nm) LED photo rejuvenation does not harm the human body. The energy delivered is safe for all skin types.
LED Phototherapy is a heat free treatment that does not contain harmful UV wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue or create photosensitivity. It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, including darker skins and the most sensitive skin conditions.

No. There is no risk of irritation, side effects or down time that may be associated with more invasive procedures. There have been no reported side effects in over 1,700 clinical studies and it does not harm the body.
No. Vitamin D production is triggered by exposure to UV light which converts cholesterol found naturally in the body to vitamin D3.
Yes. As LED therapy does not create photosensitivity, it is a safe treatment directly pre and post sun exposure. In fact, it is particularly beneficial at this time to strengthen and replenish the skin and repair damage caused by UV exposure.

Yes. The treatment should be followed by the application of suitable skin care products including a sunscreen. Makeup can then be applied.
There are certain circumstances in which phototherapy may prove to be unsuitable. Certain medications may causes photosensitivity and specific conditions may be triggered by light. For your safety and comfort, it is imperative that any medication illness, condition or other treatment that you may be undergoing are fully disclosed during your consultation with the aesthetic therapist.
