As we age, collagen diminishes and the skin becomes less flexible, drier and thinner. Our body’s natural regeneration ability slows down. The harmful UVA and UVB rays in sunlight further compound this. Unlike some anti-ageing treatments that work as a result of the body’s response to damage, LED phototherapy stimulates the body’s own normal processes of skin rejuvenation to counteract the effects of ageing.
LED phototherapy, using lights-only, stimulates cell repair and increases blood flow. It has been used to supplement other skin treatments (after Botox, fillers, facial peels, microdermabrasion, lasers and IPL therapy). It reduces the side effects and regeneration time. Treatments are painless and clients return to their normal activities after treatment.
- LED Revive phototherapy at 633nm (red light) stimulates fibroblast activity, leading to collagen synthesis. It stimulates cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue repair and regeneration and is used for wound healing.
- LED Plus phototherapy at 830nm (infra red) is used for skin rejuvenation by stimulating the contractile phase of the remodeling process producing skin tightening.
- In LED Combination phototherapy, these wavelengths work synergistically to soften fine lines and wrinkles.
