LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a revolutionary technique that offers numerous benefits when incorporated into facial treatments, particularly during the mask stage. This non-invasive treatment utilizes specific wavelengths of light to stimulate various cellular processes in the skin, leading to a range of skin-enhancing effects.

Blue light therapy, a part of LED light therapy, has proven benefits in managing acne and oily-prone skin. It works by targeting the bacteria responsible for acne breakouts, effectively reducing inflammation, and controlling sebum production. By incorporating blue light during the mask stage, you can help soothe active breakouts and prevent future ones, promoting a clearer complexion.

Red light, on the other hand, is known for its anti-aging benefits. It penetrates deeper into the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This leads to improved skin elasticity, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall more youthful appearance. When integrated into the facial treatment, red light can help improve skin texture and firmness, giving your clients a radiant and rejuvenated look.

Combining both blue and red light therapies in the mask stage of a facial treatment can provide a comprehensive solution for clients dealing with both acne and aging concerns. Blue light targets current breakouts, while red light addresses long-term skin health and anti-aging effects. The mask stage allows for extended exposure to these beneficial lights, maximizing their impact on the skin.

It’s important to note that LED light therapy is gentle, painless, and suitable for various skin types.

Blue Light Acne Treatment

This effective treatment uses scientifically-proven blue light technology to destroy the bacteria that causes acne, thereby reducing both outbreaks and inflammation. After cleansing and skin analysis, the face is gently exfoliated before the application of a gel-based mask. Blue light therapy is then used over the mask to treat the facial area, and after removal of the mask a skin-customised serum completes the treatment.
