What is LED Therapy?
Light Emitting Diode (LED) Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses concentrated beams of light to remove fine lines & wrinkles, acne scarring, rosacea and sun damage. This therapy is suitable for all skin types as it boosts skin renewal through natural rejuvenation processes of the skin. The therapy can be used in combination with facial, microdermabrasion and laser treatments to further enhance treatment results.
LED Therapy is one of the fastest ways to improve the quality of skin. Skin becomes smoother and looks more radiant because this treatment delivers a totally natural method of light-only skin rejuvenation. This non-invasive treatment targets scars, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and age spots.
The therapy harnesses the power of light energy for stimulating the production of collagen, increasing the rate of skin renewal and circulation and decreasing the production of skin ageing enzymes. When LED light penetrates into the top layer of the skin, the light energises the fibroblast cells, which produce elastin and collagen. The therapy enables the production of more replenishing agents to help control acne, rejuvenate signs of age and renew skin
Each LED treatment consists of one minute of cascading LED light pulses. Due to enhanced production of collagen, wrinkles and fine lines are reduced and overall texture of the epidermis improves. This therapy gives a more youthful and radiant appearance to patients. LED treatment increases blood flow and stimulates skin repairing cells. It can be used successfully either as a stand alone procedure or in combination with other skin treatments to restore youthful and healthy look of the skin.

The Blue LED therapy is sterilising and is suitable for treating acne and oily/acne prone skin.
The Red LED light therapy heals the skin by promoting collagen production and skin renewal. It is used for reducing wrinkles and helps with overall face firmness.
The Yellow LED Light Therapy energises the skin.
The Green LED Light Therapy reduces redness and improves overall skin texture.
Who is the best candidate?
The LED Therapy is suitable for all skin types and tones. People with following skin problems are ideal for LED Therapy:
- Sun-damaged skin
- Acne-prone skin
- Acne scars and other scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Dry and dehydrated skin
The LED therapy has no adverse reactions as it’s a pain-free, gentle and safe treatment. There is no discomfort and risk of pigmentation changes and blistering during or after the therapy. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified LED-emitting devices as possessing “non-significant risk” because they are completely safe and causes no harm after over-exposure. The therapy eliminates any chances of bruising, swelling or inflammation, which are associated with some surgical procedures. However, people should consult a dermatologist or trained skin care specialist to discuss special concerns of their skin before starting the LED Therapy.

LED therapy is an un-intrusive, soothing, relaxing and rejuvenating treatment. The treatment is less expensive than other light based therapies. One can get best results after 2–3 treatments. Each treatment session costs around $75–130. Costs will vary if the treatment is combined with other cosmetic treatments such as facial peels, laser treatment and microdermabrasion. Consult a skin care specialist to know about exact costs of combined treatments.
