LED Light Therapy – Adelaide
LED or light emitting diode therapy is a pain-free, non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy that has impressive results in treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, pigmentation and rosacea.
LEDs are tiny light bulbs that produce different colours of light: red, blue, green and yellow. Each colour produces a different wavelength of light that penetrate the skin at different levels to stimulate the skin’s natural repair and rejuvenation processes. By penetrating different levels of skin, the different coloured lights can be used to treat specific skin concerns. Different wavelengths of light can also be combined in the one treatment.
Treatment with LED is gentle and heat-free, and involves simply relaxing for 20–40 minutes under the light or combination of lights chosen by your therapist.
The positive results of LED light therapy treatment in treating skin aging and acne have been shown in many published clinical trials, with treatments increasing collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and reducing acne lesions — all without side effects or downtime.
Medical Cosmetic Centre’s clients confirm these positive results and are delighted with the tighter, smoother, clearer skin they begin to see within the first few treatments.
Frequently Asked Questions About LED Light Therapy
Q: How does LED light therapy work?
Our skin has the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate a healing response. This is a natural biochemical reaction, similar to photosynthesis in plants. In fact, LED therapy was originally developed for NASA plant growth experiments in space! This is why LED therapy has been so widely studied.
In skin, light therapy energises cells to produce collagen, improve elasticity, increase blood circulation and oxygen flow, and to release toxins. This healing response continues even after treatment.
Q: How can LED light therapy help my skin?
LED light therapy is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects of LED therapy may be used to help:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- pimples and acne
- large pores
- acne scarring
- irritated, inflamed or red skin
- skin healing.
Q: Is LED light therapy safe?
Yes. LED is a gentle, non-invasive treatment. It is completely heat and pain-free. Because LED does not use harmful ultraviolet wavelengths, it cannot damage skin tissue.
Clinical studies and our professional experience have shown no risk of short or long-term side effects.
Q: What does an LED treatment involve?
Treatment with LED involves simply relaxing for 20–40 minutes under the light or combination of lights chosen by your therapist.
Your therapist may finish your treatment by applying an O Cosmedics professional strength serum with a light facial massage.
Depending on the skin problems you are having treated, LED may be combined with other skin rejuvenating treatments such as medical microdermabrasion and oxygen infusion facials
Q: Which colour light therapy will be best for me?
Your therapist will chat to you about your skin concerns and choose a colour wavelength that is best suited to your needs. Your therapist may choose a combination of different coloured wavelengths to achieve the best results for you.
RED LED light penetrates all layers of skin, promoting collagen production and encouraging cell renewal to promote a more youthful and vibrant complexion. RED LED therapy also calms and heals the skin.
Infrared LED therapy is often used with RED light therapy to treat deeper lines, wrinkles and scarring.
BLUE LED light has been proven to have powerful antibacterial properties, killing the acne-causing bacteria, P. acnes. It helps to prevent and treat mild to moderate acne. Blue light also helps to purify the skin, stabilise oil glands and soothe inflammation.
A study published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that a combination of red and blue LED therapy was more effective in treating acne than using blue light alone or using 5% benzoyl peroxide cream. The study concluded that the mixed lights probably gave the best results due to their combination of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions.
GREEN LED light has anti-inflammatory properties that calm and soothe the surface of the skin. It helps to lighten hyperpigmentation spots, revealing a brighter complexion.
YELLOW LED light reduces the appearance of redness, swelling and inflammation. This colour of light is beneficial for treating rosacea and sunburn.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
Medical Cosmetic Centre offers LED light therapy in packages of 10 treatments.
Depending on the skin problem being treated, you may need to have one or two treatments a week.
