LED LIGHT THERAPY TREATS THE FOLLOWING CONCERNS:
LED works in different ways using different lights and/or combination of lights depending on what your skin concern is.\
If your concern is post treatment and you would like to reduce inflammation we can utilise the blue and green light to soothe the skin. A popular option is to have LED Light Therapy after a Deluxe Microdermabrasion.
If your skin concern is acne scarring or blemishes, we’ll use a combination of blue and red light. The red rebuilds collagen, stimulates our fibroblasts to enhance collagen remodelling and the blue light helps to kill the active p.acne bacteria in the skin and settles inflammation.
Use as a stand alone treatment, an add on or we have packages available which our friendly staff can assist with after a consultation.
