What Does LED therapy Do?
LED therapy is great in every single facial treatment to calm any areas of irritation and its also brilliant at brightening the skin. When used consistently, over time LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.
A course of treatments offers corrective and long-lasting results with each light color giving different results. (Read: Benefits of Red, blue, and yellow light)
Usually, you’ll be able to see a difference after the first session. LED therapy is also calming, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed. So what’s the difference between at-home and in-clinic treatments?
As with any professional versus at-home treatment, in-office LED therapy is stronger than at-home versions - but that’s not to say it’s ineffective. At-home LED masks and wands usually require additional treatments like hydrogels or cc serums. The nice thing about at-home treatments is you can use them at your own convenience.
Receiving your LED treatment in-clinic is usually an add-on to a facial, chemical peel, or micro-needling treatment. For best results, a series of LED sessions is usually required. LED therapy has a cumulative effect so consistency is key when it comes to enjoying its benefits.
LED therapy is a relaxing treatment that provides real benefits for overall skin health that is ideal for ongoing and consecutive treatments to yield glow-inducing and breakout reducing benefits as part of your skin health journey.
