See the light – What can LED Light Therapy do for your skin?
As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells can stop renewing themselves naturally. LED Light Therapy uses proven technology to trigger your body’s natural cell processes and accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin.
“Our skin uses light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells,” explains Helen Robb-Lacey, head of endota Wellness College. “LED Light Therapy provides skin with a boost of this energy, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, increases circulation and accelerates tissue repair.”
So how does LED Light Therapy work?
During an LED Light Therapy treatment, you’ll sit underneath a professional LED mask that emits various wavelengths of light. The technology doesn’t contain UV rays so you can rest easy knowing it won’t damage your skin.
“The complexion is plumped up with new collagen, pushing the folds of the wrinkles out and new elastin, which helps to tighten the skin and give it more elasticity,” Helen said.
Best used after exfoliation and before hydration, LED Light Therapy is a proven anti-ageing method often used in our high-performance facials including the New Age Light Therapy or Intense Radiance Facial.
“Thanks to the restorative power of LED, it is often recommended as an effective treatment for sun damage, acne, rosacea, and sensitivity as well as anyone looking to restore their skin’s radiance,” Helen said. “LED is also great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone, reducing pores size, and brightening the skin.”
“Our skin uses light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells,” explains Helen Robb-Lacey.
Please note: LED masks may vary between spas
While LED Light Therapy can be used on any part of the body, it’s most commonly used on the face. You can also see benefits by using it on the neck and chest, which can show premature signs of ageing. “It is noninvasive, so there’s no recovery time. You should be able to continue with your everyday activities once your treatment is over,” Helen said. “You’ll achieve the most dramatic results with professional LED Light Therapy, which can also be used in conjunction with other skin therapies such as hydro-microdermabrasion.”
