LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a technology using multiple wavelengths of visible and invisible infrared light delivered at low intensity. LED technology was originally developed by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center to enhance the growth of the plant tissue in space. 

LED has a similar physiological effect on human cells as well. It increased cell energy, prompts the skin fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin, stimulating healing response by the body. As a result LED promotes wound healing; reduces inflammation, mild scarring, and hyper-pigmentation; smoothens and improves skin surface; stimulates human tissue growth and immunity.

LED is considered to be less aggressive and damaging than other light devices because it doesn’t deliver enough concentrated energy so the chance of thermal injury to the tissues is none. This does not however take away from their effectiveness.

LED is used for treatment or maintenance of: Acne, Rosacea and is used for Anti-aging.

After chemical peelsmicrodermabrasion, and facials. Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) using photo-activated medication Levulan ® (for acne and actinic keratosis)

The procedure takes from 15-20 minutes, completely painless and doesn’t involve any downtime. It can be performed on your lunch-break. A series of procedures are required for the best results.

LED can be combined with other treatments. LED is perfectly safe and effective to combine with other treatments like Botox, fillers IPL, microdermabrasion and chemical peels. LED is still intended to supplement, not replace daily skin care. Our patients find the LED treatment to be very relaxing and do not experience discomfort.
