LED stands for light-emitting diode and is a type of light-based aesthetic therapy that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It’s recommended for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore skin’s radiance.
It also offers an effective treatment following laser and IPL procedures thanks to its healing and soothing properties and ability to speed up wound healing. LED light therapy is also known as photodynamic therapy or PDT for short.
LED Light Therapy is great to use in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments to calm any areas of irritation and it’s also brilliant when used on its own to brighten the skin.
When used consistently, over time, LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.
A course of treatments offers corrective and long-lasting results, although you’ll be able to see a difference after the first session. Light therapy is also particularly calming, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed.
Thanks to these groundbreaking discoveries, our clients can now enjoy the regenerative and healing benefits of LED light therapy. This technology has demonstrated its effectiveness treating a whole range of skin concerns including wrinkles, redness, acne, pigmentation, inflammation and scarring.
The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, or, in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath a light screen while the device does all the work. Different coloured LED lights are applied to the skin depending on the skin concern. These energy-producing wavelengths of light gently and painlessly penetrate through the epidermis to the deeper layers of skin to stimulate production of collagen and heal and renew skin on a cellular level.
The number of treatments required will depend on your individual goals, which will be discussed during your initial consultation. Typically, clients are treated two times per week over a period of time and many clients see and feel results after just one treatment.
Relatively short, depending on your individual treatment plan. Typical treatments are fast and effective, lasting between 10 and 20 minutes.

Yes, LED Light Therapy was initially developed to aid in the recovery of wounds and post-surgery scars, without the harmful use of radiation. Now, you can undergo LED Light Therapy to assist with pain relief, superficial skin lesions, rosacea, burns or simply as an addition to your advanced skin care regimen.
There isn’t any downtime from the standalone LED treatment. However, if LED Light therapy is used after another treatment it can help reduce the downtime associated with that treatment.
