What Conditions can the LED Treat?   There is a large array of conditions which LED has been shown to be very effective in treating. Among those are:   Rosacea skin flushing (which is dramatically reduced and calmed usually within a few treatments). Helps reduce or eliminate the appearance of sun spots and redness. Helps in the elimination of P-acne, reducing facial blemishes, inflammation, and redness. Helps in the flattening of stretch marks and the appearance of superficial scars. Aids in the circulation in superficial tissues reducing the appearance of cellulite. Accelerates skin repair and soothes sunburn. Reduces and eases the pain of injuries.   The following list details some of the general benefits which can be obtained:   Regenerating and stimulating collagen. h(Red LED Light is known to help stimulate collagen production over %200 within 24 Hours.) Minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Reducing the appearances of crow’s feet. Clearing blemishes. Improving the appearance of skin tone. Increasing circulation. Lessening of pore size. Stimulating and activating the metabolic process in skin cells.

What are LED’s and how are they used?   LED’s- Light Emitting Diodes- provide infrared (invisible to the eye) and visible red light that helps the cells of the human tissue, the same way sunlight helps the cells of plants, process and utilize food and air, into usable energy. The LED’s are programmed to change frequency and patterns of length to offer the most beneficial treatment according to the patients needs and desired effects. LED technology has long been touted as being an aide in wound treatment; the reduction in appearance of wrinkles, scars, and cellulite; and pain management through it’s use of deep-penetrating warmth and stimulation of cell metabolism, and has been the topic of research by NASA for space utilization, medical college research studies, and even physical fitness training facilities everywhere. Most current medical responses to skin aging currently involve invasive, painful, and often very expensive means of correction. LED offers a non-invasive approach that can be used regularly to reduce the appearance of the problem areas that these extensive surgeries and laser-treatments are being used to correct. LED therapy stimulates the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the major carrier of energy to all cells driving the chemical reaction of the cell.

Is the LED safe to use and operate?   Yes, the LED is entirely safe to use and to operate. LED therapy is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that is gentle, painless, quite safe and effective. Treatments are non-invasive and non-abrasive, yet the light penetrates deeply into skin’s tissue. It is safe for any age, color, or skin-type, and can be used on any area of the body, with the exception of the eyes.   LED Light Therapy is NOT RECOMMENDED if you suffer from:   Epilepsy - certain frequencies of light can trigger epileptic seizures. Pregnancy - studies haven’t conclusively determined the risk to pregnant women and their babies, and is therefore not recommended. Thyroid conditions – not recommended for those that suffer from thyroid conditions. Not recommended for those who are photo-allergic, or are taking medication that has shown to cause light sensitivities (such as Tetracycline).

Is the treatment dangerous to the eyes?   We recommend that you do not stare directly into the LED Light. Goggles are provided to ensure comfort during treatment.   Is it possible to combine LED treatments with other procedures or products?   Absolutely. The LED treatment can be used alone or with other skin care treatments. Many aestheticians and physicians have used LED in combination with other skincare modalities and found them to be very complimentary.

Does it dry skin out?   No. In fact, you will notice that within days of an LED treatment your skin will become more hydrated, firm and smooth.   Is the treatment painful?   Not in the least. On the contrary, it is comfort-producing and relaxing, much like spending time in the sunlight. It is a very gentle treatment, quite painless and non-invasive. Additionally, there is no real “down-time” after your session.    How long does treatment take?   Each unit is preprogrammed with easy to understand settings (as easy to operate as pushing a button) which provide the patient with a 20-minute session best suited for the individual’s target area. This is the recommended duration of one session for most conditions. Deep pain relief applications will generally take longer, perhaps two consecutive sessions.   How is the skin prepared for the treatment? For best results, use the unit only on clean skin. It is also recommended that one cleanse and exfoliate skin before use (exfoliating (sloughing) the skin helps the LED light to penetrate deeper into skin).

When should I use the LED device?   Varying frequencies of LED light give the skin the necessary aid to reduce signs of aging. Patients with recent surgical wounds or trauma can use LED for accelerated healing and scar reduction post surgery. Patients with skin discolorations and acne can use LED as frequently as they desire. Some patients with diabetes or other light/heat sensitive ailments may require attention to avoid over-heated skin but can still benefit from the device.   How long until I can expect visible results?   Due to the variety of skin-types and the variation in damage to skin some will see immediate improvement and others will require further treatments. The majority of clients will see marked results in around four treatments. With some clients even one treatment will have a visible freshening and rejuvenating effect. Treatments are progressive and have cumulative benefits so we recommend a schedule of 10 sessions to obtain the maximum demonstrable results from this therapy.

Generally speaking, those with Rosacea skin will experience a calming effect after 3 or so treatments. Collagen production and anti-aging may take up to 4 weeks before the improvements can be plainly seen. Pain and wounds heal faster with each treatment (30 minutes a day, at least). Skin texture and tone improve on the very first treatment.

What is the difference between the Blue and Red LED Lights?   The difference is in the wavelength at which the LED Light is emitted, measured by Nanometers, or “nm”. Each color has its own range of efficacy against certain skin conditions. 

LED BLUE LIGHT, approximately 400 to 485 nm, has been shown to be effective in treating the following conditions: P. acnes is known as the causative agent of acne. Porphyrin, a compound generated by the P. acnes bacteria is photosensitive and reacts to 405-440 nm (blue) light. Blue Light Therapy is an alternative for patients who do not respond well to antibiotic therapy or who develop problematic side-effects.

LED RED LIGHT, approximately 600-900 nm, is very useful in the treatment of many different conditions among which are: Reduces the appearance of aging and damaged skin, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and Superficial hyper-pigmentation. Temporarily relieves minor muscle and joint pain, stiffness, and relaxes muscle tissue. Rosacea skin flushing is calmed within a few treatments. Improves skin texture, even causing spots to fade. 

Who needs and can benefit from LED Light Therapy?   As we all inevitably age, our skin looses some of its ability to heal and reconstruct itself. The skin’s production of components such as collagen and elastin, necessary in maintaining the physical appearance and vitality of skin, decreases over time, and their reduced presence affects the maintenance and repair of aged and damaged cells( and also scar tissue, toxin and waste build-up, acne, wrinkles, sunspots, hyper-pigmentation, etc.). These factors, which can increase the appearance of physical flaws and characteristic skin discoloration and texture, can have a cumulative effect and become overwhelming. Varying frequencies of low-level infrared and visible red light give the skin the necessary aid to reduce these, and many other, signs of aging. These wavelengths of light can also help reduce scarring and provide relief from pain for patients requiring pain management and wound healing, of all shapes, sizes, age, and colors of skin. Some patients with heat/light sensitivity from medications or medical problems may require means to reduce heat to the skin but can still use the LED system since the heat output is very minimal.
