Are you looking to reduce inflammation, active acne or skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema? Or are you wanting to kick start skin rejuvenation? LED light therapy provided by our Melbourne clinic might be the answer.
LED light therapy, or LED photo rejuvenation a safe and risk-free procedure that is useful for treating acne and rosacea, bacteria, and is suitable for all skin types. LED light therapy helps to stimulate collagen production. This form of treatment not painful; some say that it is actually thoroughly relaxing!
LED phototherapy works due to the photon intensity and the very specific wavelengths of light on the cellular and sub-cellular level (specifically 415nm, 633nm and 830nm wavelengths). At first, it may sound like pseudoscience, because what we see is just coloured light. However, a large variety of cytokines, chemokines and macromolecules can be induced by LED phototherapy and the light-emitting diode.
Clinical applications of LED light therapy include, restoring the collagenase imbalance of non-healing wounds to allow for faster healing. The application of the light-emitting diodes also results in less obvious scarring.
LED light therapy from our Melbourne clinic is a non-invasive light therapy treatment that reduces the appearance of ageing, fine lines, acne, rosacea, and other skin conditions. LED skin treatment helps to increase collagen production.
However, LED light therapy is neither a laser nor an IPL treatment. It is normally combined with our facial treatments to help minimise fine lines and wrinkles, or to assist the skin in healing naturally without causing any cell damage.
LED light therapy is a completely painless, pure, non-laser light source that is not an ultraviolet or infra-red light. Therefore an LED light facial is much softer on the skin than other alternatives.
Your initial treatment will involve a skin analysis and consultation. Depending on the condition of your skin and your concerns, you may require multiple treatments for the best results.
Thereafter, ongoing maintenance will give the greatest longevity and success to your LED light therapy treatments.
This form of treatment is also called LED phototherapy, and is suitable for both men and women, and is a great way to improve the appearance regardless of gender. We have many male and female patients of all ages!
The majority of our patients feel an immediate effect from LED light therapy, but every skin type is different. Immediately after your first treatment, your skin will look clearer, brighter and smoother.
During treatment, you will feel pleasant, light warmth under the diode as the LED light surrounds your face. Many liken this sensation to lying on the beach for 20 minutes without the harmful UVA or UVB radiation. The LED light therapy treatment is very relaxing, with many clients falling asleep during the treatment. LED light therapy is not painful like some laser treatments!
LED light therapy was developed after many years of medical research. It delivers pure, narrow-band light via a matrix of purpose built LEDs (Light Emitting Diode) carefully positioned to ensure a uniform beam across the face.
LED Light Therapy has been developed to closely match key photoreceptors, excluding all unnecessary wavelengths and delivering a narrow and continuous dosage at optimum power. There is no photo bleaching, sebaceous gland disruption or tissue hyperthermia as seen with high-intensity light sources and lasers.
Red light therapy targets the mitochondria organelle within the cell. This chromophore is the energy power pack within your cell, thus the LED red light energises the skin allowing it to function with greater efficacy. This form of skin treatment is great for accelerating the healing process, plumping/hydrating the skin from within, and reducing redness. Blue light targets the porphyrins within the P-Acne bacterium, thus destroying acne at the source.
LED Light Therapy uses light-emitting diode technology to activate and promote collagen production and increase the rate of skin cell renewal. Enhanced collagen production greatly reduces fine lines and improves the overall texture of the epidermis, resulting in a more youthful, radiant appearance.
If you’ve begun to notice slight irregularities in skin tone or the fine lines on your face are becoming more pronounced, LED Therapy from our Melbourne clinic could be perfect for you. This is particularly beneficial for targeting acne and breakouts and promoting the healing of your skin.
This form of skin treatment is simple and pain free. Like most people, you will probably find it both pleasant and wonderfully relaxing. You will be asked to lay back and relax with your eyes closed, wearing gentle eye protection. We will then place the LED panels around the treatment area and let the light do its rejuvenating work.
As the treatment stimulates collagen and elastin, your skin should feel tighter and firmer. Any fine lines will diminish in appearance, as well as blemishes and acne. Overall, the treatment should result in a younger, more radiant-looking you. If you suffer from acne in particular you will see a noticeable decrease in any redness and inflammation.
No. Your skin will warm very slightly, as that is how the treatment works. It is not painful.
The effects of LED Light Therapy will likely last for a very long time. However, it is not a miracle cure that freezes your skin in place for all eternity.
Generally, 6 to 12 visits are recommended. We will develop an individualised treatment program for you when you come into our Melbourne clinic. It is beneficial to book maintenance sessions after your initial course has run out, as your skin will still age.
Absolutely. LED Light Therapy has benefits and is safe to use on all skin types.
