LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to promote skin health and vitality.

The therapy involves exposing the skin to low-level light energy that penetrates deep into the skin layers, stimulating cellular activity and promoting healing.

How Does LED Light Therapy Work?

LED light therapy harnesses the power of specific wavelengths of light emitted by light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to penetrate the skin at various depths. Each colour wavelength of light has a different effect on the skin, enabling targeted treatment for a variety of conditions. Here’s a detailed look at how this innovative therapy works:

  • Light Absorption: When LED light is directed at the skin, it is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and cell membranes. This absorption stimulates a variety of intracellular processes.
  • Cellular Response: The energy absorbed from the light enhances cellular metabolism, increases the production of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), and promotes DNA and RNA synthesis. These effects contribute to faster cell regeneration and repair.
  • Tissue Repair and Growth: Increased cellular activity enhances collagen production and prompts the formation of new capillaries. These processes help in tissue repair and growth, improving skin health and appearance.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Action: It can help reduce inflammation, which can alleviate swelling, redness, and pain in various conditions.

Types of LED Light and Their Uses

Red Light

Primarily used for anti-ageing, red light penetrates deeply to stimulate collagen production, which can reduce wrinkles and increase skin elasticity.

Blue Light

Targets and destroys acne-causing bacteria present in the skin glands, reducing acne and helping to clear the complexion.

Green Light

Helps reduce pigmentation, lighten skin, and alleviate discolouration associated with hyperpigmentation and sunspots.

Yellow Light

Used to soothe the skin, reduce redness, and improve lymphatic flow, which can detoxify the skin and reduce swelling.

Areas Eligible For LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is versatile, targeting several areas to treat various skin conditions:


What to Expect During a Session?

Undergoing LED light therapy is a straightforward and comfortable experience. Here’s what patients can expect during a typical session:

Before the Session

Prior to treatment, a consultation with a doctor is important. This allows for a tailored session plan based on individual skin concerns and goals. Patients are advised to cleanse their skin to remove any makeup or products, ensuring maximum light penetration during the session.

During the Session

Patients will be seated or lying down in a comfortable position. Eye protection will be provided to shield the eyes from the bright LED lights. A typical session lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the specific skin issues addressed.

Frequency of Treatments

The number of sessions needed varies based on the skin’s condition and the treatment goals.

Benefits of LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is safe for all skin types and offers a multitude of benefits for various skin conditions, making it a versatile choice for enhancing skin health and appearance. Here are some of the primary benefits:

  • Promotes Collagen Production: It stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving skin elasticity and firmness.
  • Reduces Inflammation and Redness: It reduces inflammation and targets acne-causing bacteria, soothing irritated skin.
  • Improves Skin Tone and Texture: Regular sessions lead to a more even skin tone and smoother texture by aiding in skin cell regeneration.
  • Accelerates Healing: Enhances cellular repair and regeneration, speeding up the healing of wounds and scars.
  • Reduces Acne and Minimises Pore Size: It targets acne bacteria on the face and body, reduces breakouts, and minimises pore appearance for a refined look.

Downtime Expectations for the Treatment

One of the significant advantages of LED light therapy is the minimal to zero downtime required post-treatment. Patients may experience:

  • Mild Sensations: Some patients may experience mild redness or warmth immediately following the session, but these symptoms typically subside within a few hours.
  • No Severe Side Effects: LED light therapy is known for its safety, and severe side effects are exceedingly rare.
