FOR ANTI-AGING, ACNE, PIGMENTATION & MORE
LED light therapy, or LED photo rejuvenation provides a mechanism for Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) or ‘Phototherapy’ and “Photobiomodulation”. It is a risk-free, non-invasive procedure that helps to regenerate skin cells, cleanse and nourish the skin, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, fight existing wrinkles and their formation, treat rosacea, psoriasis and acne-causing bacteria. It’s also thoroughly relaxing.
The effects of Phototherapy and LLLT are photochemical. When the correct intensity and frequency are used, the light energy photons, generated by the LED light sources, are absorbed by selected chromophores in the tissue. This process stimulates mitochondrial and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) production; promoting blood circulation and tissue oxygenation, leading to a reduction in inflammation, increased lymphatic flow and cell proliferation, while also facilitating the creation and extension of the anti-aging enzymes ultimately resulting in skin rejuvenation that includes: a reduction in wrinkles, toning, tightening and texturing.
In simple terms, our cells are given an energy boost when they absorb light, specifically red wavelengths at 630 nm and near infrared wavelengths at 850 nm. This energy boost enables our cells to perform critical functions at a higher level and to function more efficiently.
Among clinical studies, non-healing wounds can be healed through restoring the collagenase imbalance while normal wounds heal at an accelerated rate when treated with light-emitting diodes resulting in less obvious scarring.
GALVANIC FACIAL current is an optional modality that is used in conjunction with hydrogel masks and/or other customized skincare formulations. It can be used as an independent treatment regime, or in combination with LED light therapy. The galvanic current delivers minute electrical pulses (micro-currents) designed to mirror the body’s own bio-electric field. The Galvanic treatment works to improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage to the face, acting as a cleanser for the skin and helping to remove impurities. The current creates a positive charge which attracts and breaks up negatively charged toxins and impurities.
In addition, the Galvanic therapy’s micro-currents cause rhythmic contraction and relaxation of the facial muscles, increasing elasticity of the skin while reducing the appearance of existing wrinkles and slowing down the formation of new wrinkles. All major muscles are tighten, so the face looks reawaken and lifted.
An integral aspect of the Galvanic current treatment is the application of a unique hydrogel mask to the face. This transparent mask supports a combination of water-based, natural ingredients, which are absorbed into the skin under the influence of the galvanic therapy’s minute electric current which helps to open pores allowing the ingredients to pass through the skin’s barrier into the deeper layers of the epidermis.

* Red Light Therapy has become a very popular, in-demand service, as a result many ineffective devices have hit the market which are being employed in professionals setting by inexperienced individuals who have little to no knowledge of the science and what makes for an effective device. We encourage you to do your due diligence before selecting a location and a professional to perform Light Therapy Treatments.
LED Light Therapy is a Relaxing, Non-Invasive and Cost-Effective Facial Treatment with Amazing Results.
FOR MEN & WOMEN
LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive light therapy treatment that reduces the appearance of aging, acne, rosacea and helps to increase collagen production. It is neither a laser nor an IPL treatment. Normally combined with our facial treatments to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles, or assisting to naturally heal the skin without causing any cell damage. LED Light Therapy is a completely painless, pure non-laser light source that is not an ultraviolet.
Your initial treatment will involve a skin analysis and consultation. Depending on the condition of your skin and your concerns, you may require multiple treatments for best results. Thereafter, ongoing maintenance will give the greatest longevity and success to your LED Light Therapy treatments.
WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE?
The majority of our clients feel an immediate effect from LED Light Therapy, but every skin type is different. Immediately after your first treatment, your skin will look clearer, brighter and smoother. You will feel a pleasant, light warmth under the mask as the light surrounds your face. It is much like lying on the beach for 20 minutes without the harmful UVA or UVB radiation. The LED Light Therapy treatment is very relaxing, with most clients falling asleep during the treatment.
LED Light Therapy was developed after many years of medical research. It delivers pure, narrow-band light via a matrix of purpose built LEDs (Light Emitting Diode) carefully positioned to ensure a uniform beam across the face.
SAFE & EFFECTIVE
LED Light Therapy has been developed to closely match key photoreceptors, excluding all unnecessary wavelengths and delivering a narrow and continuous dosage at optimum power. There is no photobleaching, sebaceous gland disruption or tissue hyperthermia as seen with high-intensity light sources and lasers.
Red light Therapy targets the mitochondria organelle within the cell. This chromophore is the energy power pack within your cell, thus the LED red light energizes the skin allowing it to function with greater efficacy. It is great for accelerating the healing process, plumping/hydrating the skin from within and reducing redness.
Blue light targets the porphyrins within the P-Acne bacterium, thus destroying the acne at the source.
LIGHT THERAPY FAQs
Both red light at 630 nm and near infrared light at 850 nm have been proven to enhance cellular function. The main difference is that red light at 660 nm light is readily absorbed by skin tissue leading to improved skin health and collagen production. Near infrared light at 850 nm is invisible to the human eye and penetrates into deeper tissue, leading to benefits like increased increased blood flow which delivers elevated levels of oxygen and nutrients to tissues including the skin, whilst stimulating lymphatic flow and helping remove waste products and has effects such as combating the signs of aging, nourishing dermal and deeper lying epidermal cells, accelerating healing, muscle recovery and reduced joint pain.
Blue light at 415 nm is proven to have anti-bacterial properties which contribute to the destruction of the bacteria which cause some the leading form of acne. The blue light also helps purify the skin, stabilize oil secreting glands and calm inflammation.
Combining the two visible lights (415 nm and 630 nm) with infra-red allows treatment of complex skin conditions. The purple light that is created combines the properties of both the blue and the red light resulting in both acne and skin rejuvenation.
For skin health benefits alone, we recommend a 10-15 minute session for each treatment. For full body treatment, and optimal cellular health a skin health benefits alone, 15-20 minutes is required.
While we know that red and near infrared light provide cellular health benefits, the time required will depend on your desired outcomes. Most people will see benefits like increased muscle recovery, pain relief, and wound healing very quickly. However, enhanced skin health, like reducing wrinkles and scars, can sometimes take 8-12 weeks.
Yes, a big difference! LED’s offer the most effective technology for controlling the wavelength and direction of the light. In addition, they allow for the production of high intensity output with minimal heat. They’re incredibly efficient!
The type of device also makes a tremendous difference as for a device to be effective it must produce the proper wavelengths of light and the appropriate intensities. The problem is as the benefits of light therapy have become more well known, demand for these devices has surged. While professional-grade devices manufactured by medical companies costs thousands of dollars, cheap imitation and consumer-grade devices manufactured by cosmetic and electronics companies can be purchased for a few hundred dollars. These imitation devices aren’t capable of producing the light intensity required to produce the biological changes within the skin and thus the desired results.
Yes, makeup can be worn and should not affect the benefits of red light therapy unless it contains SPF or other photo reflectors or absorbers. We do however, recommend you remove your makeup for light therapy facials and you must do so for treatments that include galvanic therapy.
No, you don’t. In fact, there have been a number of published clinical studies that demonstrate red and near infrared light is beneficial for your eyes.
No, not at all. Our Light Therapy Devices will not expose you to damaging UV rays and they will not produce any tanning effect.
You can wear clothes. Or you can be nude. Whatever you prefer. Just make sure the area of your body you wish to be treated is fully exposed to the light.
Photobiomodulation (light therapy) and heat therapy (eg. saunas) are quite different in terms of the benefits as well as the mechanisms of action.
We are not physicians however, if you use medications such as Tetracycline, Digoxin, and photosensitizing drugs (e.g. tranquilizers, sulfa drugs, oral anti-diabetic drugs, etc.), it’s probably a good idea to consult with your physician before using light therapy.
