Many who first hear of LED light therapy confuse it for infrared light therapy or even sun tanning beds. What makes this treatment different? LED light can be adjusted for the patient’s needs and maximum results, targeting the areas of the face that will benefit most from the various wavelengths of light.
Is LED Light Therapy Safe?
Many features make this type of skin rejuvenation a safe option. LED light contains no ultraviolet rays, which are a significant risk factor for skin cancer. It also treats the skin without burning or otherwise damaging any part of your skin. A chemical peel or microdermabrasion may be very effective but can be painful, plus require time to recover before seeing those results. LED light therapy has been proven effective for all skin tones and types.
Is Light Therapy Effective?
When growing plants in space, LED lights were first used by NASA where there wasn’t any natural light to promote the growth of new plant cells. It was used in the military to encourage the development of new cells and speed up the healing process for battle wounds. Today, we use the same technology to boost the production of skin cells that can help to lessen wrinkles and age spots, heal acne and scarring and more.
Because LED light wavelengths can be adjusted to meet the patient’s needs, it is a highly customizable treatment option. For example, red light is most effective against age spots and wrinkles, while blue light is more successful against acne and scarring.
What Are the Benefits of LightStim LED?
As you can imagine, LED light therapy for skin rejuvenation is quite safe and effective. However, there are many more benefits to this treatment option. Most patients need around ten treatments to see maximum results, with one treatment per week.
Each treatment lasts just 20 minutes, is non-invasive and pain-free. You may even find the LightStim LED bed comfortable and enjoy your treatment as a time to relax and focus on doing something positive for yourself. With the LightStim LED bed, you can choose to treat the body as well as the face during your 20-minute session.
If over-the-counter treatments for anti-aging or acne haven’t been successful long-term and you are looking for a better option, consider LED light therapy. To learn more about it and how it can help improve your skin, contact AuraSpa of Beverly Hills today.
