All the skincare treatments in the world cannot replace the collagen that we naturally begin to lose as the years go by. The decline in collagen in combination with exposure to the pollutants of everyday life causes our skin to lose its elasticity and firmness — and the ability to literally bounce back from damage.
Scars, inflammation, wrinkles, and other signs of premature aging inevitability begin to show. Thankfully, LED (Light Emitting Diode) light treatments trigger the body to amp up collagen production, stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and creating improved tone and texture for all skin types.

WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED therapy was originally discovered by NASA. It has been studied extensively for decades and is a proven effective treatment for skin rejuvenation. LED light therapy works by emitting infrared light on your face in intentional wavelengths. These LEDs send light energy directly into the skin triggering desired reactions on a cellular level. LED Light therapy is available in two distinct treatments. The first is red light LED, which targets collagen-producing skin cells. Additionally, there is blue light LED therapy, a near-infrared light, which is shown to increase skin tone and treat acne. Patients can utilize both types of therapy together strategically to achieve visibly timeless skin.
THE BENEFITS OF LED LIGHT THERAPY
Red LED Therapy is well known for its healing and anti-aging benefits. Red light is known for boosting circulation and bringing more blood and nutrients to the targeted area — which gives your body the tools it needs to activate many benefits, including the following:
Stimulated collagen/elastin production to plump and firm skin
Improved lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness
Energized and repaired cell damage
Reduction in melasma
Blue LED Therapy is an effective treatment for acne and hormonal breakouts due to its antibacterial properties. Blue light pulses target and kill bacteria within skin pores, treating acne at the source to make way for clear and vibrant skin:
Reduced overall oil production
Clearance of congestion within pores
Anti-bacterial agents that kill bacteria at the source
Improvements in visible rosacea, keratosis pilaris, and eczema
What Do I Need To Know Before My First Treatment?
To prepare your skin for your first LED light therapy, avoid excessive sun exposure and reduce your use of exfoliants.
How Is LED Light Treatment Different From IPL Treatment?
IPL is a broad-spectrum light that delivers intense energy to the skin, while LED uses specific wavelengths of light and a lower intensity.
How Often Should I Receive LED Light Treatments?
Most patients start with a treatment every week for 4 to 5 weeks, although this can vary depending on the results of your complimentary consultation.
