I could write all day long about the science behind LED skin therapy. My goal here is to explain the key benefits and why I love and recommend “light” therapy for most every skin type out there. There are many different brands of LED in spa land today; certain brands are far superior to others. Omnilux, by Photo Therapeutics out of the UK is the piece of equipment I will be referring to here. I have seen the results first hand and they have the scientific data to back up their claims.
There are many different colors used in LED therapy but the two most popular and effective are red and blue. Generally speaking, the red light is used for aging concerns and the blue light is used for acne.
Minimizes pore size
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Skin feels softer, smoother
Reduce the acne-causing bacteria in skin
Advantages to other treatments on the market:
Non-Invasive and safe
No down time
Non-thermal-(skin is not sun sensitive after the treatment, the opposite happens and cells are actually more protected.)
Great as a combination therapy with other treatments
Be prepared for an extremely bright light! Just relax and pretend you are sitting on a beach somewhere exotic (that’s what I do!) and relax. Visit the Omnilux website for before and after photos and call to find a clinic near you.
