Australian Skin Clinics’ National Training Manager, Darlene O’Gara, has answered all of our burning (no pun intended) questions about this popular beauty treatment.
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED (Light emitting diode) is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses LED light bulbs to emits wavelengths of light energy, that targets deep into the skin cells for multiple skin and anti-aeging benefits. It is a painless and relaxing treatment that is cost effective with amazing results, safe for all skin types and colours.
What are the benefits?
LED has an array of different bright coloured lights, at Australian Skin Clinic’s we offer blue or yellow.
Yellow light has been clinically proven to increase the overall health of the skin. It targets skin rejuvenation, wound healing (think acne scarring) decreases signs of fine lines and increases blood flow to skin tissue. LED is usually used in combination with other Skin treatments for optimal results and ideal treatment to have before and after microdermabrasion and skin peels, and post cosmetic injectables to help accelerate the healing process and maximise your treatment benefits. increases blood flow to skin tissue

How long does it take?
The beauty of this treatment is that it is so time-efficient, it can be done on your lunch break. LED Light Therapy can take just 10 to 20 minutes depending on your individual treatment plan. This treatment is based on your personal skincare goals, but several treatments spread across a select period of time delivers long lasting results. However, you do see immediate results after the very first treatment.
