LED light therapy can correct sun damage, environmental damage, acne, acne scarring, and best of all slow down the appearance of aging skin! Clients notice results often in just a few treatments, some may take longer than others depending on factors such as age, alcohol consumption, skincare regimen and other factors.

What is LED therapy?
LED stands for light emitting diode. LED utilizes red light therapy, infrared light therapy and blue light therapy for many skin conditions.
What are the Benefits?
LED increases cell turnover revealing more youthful skin, faster. The light energy increases cellular activity and kick starts collagen production. Red Light therapy is great for anti-aging, but there are many more benefits for our skin such as repairing flaccid skin, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, wound healing, reduction of sun spots, and reduction of acne scarring, and all are treatable with the help of red light therapy. A simple thirty minute treatment will help you and help your skin look beautiful, healthy and radiant.
Blue light therapy is also beneficial as it boosts the skin’s immune system. This is ideal for killing bacteria caused by blemishes. This therapy is also great for acne prone folks as it will regulate oil production as well as the shedding of dead skin cells, and decrease inflammation. Blue light therapy and red light therapy can be used alone to treat acne but paired together it becomes a much more effective treatment.
As for Infrared light therapy, this is used in conjunction with red and blue light therapy. Infrared is used for a variety of skin concerns, anti-aging, acne, acne scarring, and facial rejuvenation. Infrared therapy is a much stronger treatment, the energy travels much deeper into the skin and is absorbed by the proteins in the cell membrane. Boost collagen, smooth wrinkles, improve scarring and enhance tone, LED light therapy really addresses many of the needs seen in aging skin.

LED light therapy can treat any part of the body! That is just one of the amazing benefits of this technology. There is no discomfort or pain when the light is on the body, many may feel a euphoric feeling throughout the day after this treatment due to the endorphins that are released in response to the energy emitted by the light.
