LED – light therapy

LED light therapy is painless, relaxing non-invasive skin care treatment.

LED works by using an array of light emitting diodes that send low level light energy into deeper layers of the skin. Our skin has the ability to absorb this light and use it as a source of energy to stimulate natural cell processes, promoting healing from the inside out. LED Phototherapy uses specific wavelengths of light to recharge the cells, energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster, thus achieving a healthier skin appearance

LED Phototherapy does not use heat or chemicals and the light does not use contain harmful UV wavelengths and so cannot damage skin cells. Unlike more invasive procedures, LED Phototherapy does not use heat, trauma or chemicals to promote change in the skin and therefore provides one of the safest options to treat all skin types without irritation, unwanted side effects, thermal damage or downtime

LED Phototherapy is recommended for:

  • Skin Rejuvenation

Green light Therapy is excellent for treating pigmented or sun damaged skin and helps to combat the signs of ageing.

When used regularly, green light can help the skin to look brighter and more radiant.
