LED

LED (light emitting diode) therapy sounds like a high - tech treatment - and that's because it is! developed by NASA to assist with growing plants in outer space, it didn't take long to discover that LED technology was also highly effective at increasing energy in human cells to accelerate wound healing and stimulate renewal of damaged cells and tissue. For this reason, this light-based restorative treatment naturally found its way into the treatment rooms of: skin clinics to be used as an advanced solution for:

  • Addressing the signs of aging
  • Managing acne
  • Correcting skin tone andreducing inflammation


How it works

LED energises the skins cells similar to the way that sun energises plants through phtotosynthesis. With LED, low intensity light waves of specific parameters combine with light activated cellular chromophores to increase ATP synthesis and enhance fibroblast activity to increase natural collagen and elastin synthesis, increase skin thickness and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This constant, non-invasive, nonablative (nonablative means that you don’t cause any damage to the tissue) light technology reduces the appearance of damaged skin tissue without heat, without pain and without risk.

Red Light – Increases collagen and elastin production in the skin, great for lines, wrinkles,  scarring and pitting.

Blue Light – Anti-bacterial kills off acne bacteria P-Porphorin9 to reduce break-outs, congestion and black-heads.
