How Does LED Light Therapy Work

LED light therapy is a noninvasive skin treatment for skin concerns such as acne, sun damage, impaired skin barrier and other common skin complaints. During this treatment, wavelengths of light stimulate the skin’s natural healing process. 

The LED treatment that we offer at The Skin Health Clinic is FDA approved as we ensure that only the best quality medical devices are used. Our LED treatment is scientifically proven to promote skin cell rejuvenation without any harmful side effects. The safe and effective process takes place in a nontoxic environment and is free of abrasive chemicals or UV rays, working to give your skin an optimal healthy glow. 

Different wavelengths of light in LED lights, including blue and red, penetrate the skin at different depths. This penetration triggers biological processes that can help the skin rejuvenate and heal.

Blue light LED

Blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands which produce oil in the skin. This is particularly beneficial to those who suffer from acne and greasy skin. Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation.

Red light LED

The use of red LED light on the skin improves scarring and signs of ageing. This is achieved by stimulating the skin cells called fibroblasts, which are a natural source of collagen. Collagen is a protein in the skin that plays a significant role in healing. As we grow older, the body produces less collagen causing our skin to show signs of ageing. 

Red light LED can also reduce signs of inflammation in the skin which is particularly beneficial to those with skin conditions such as acne and rosacea.

Benefits of LED light therapy

LED light therapy is suitable and offers benefits to all skin types. The key benefit that sets LED treatment apart from many other types of skin correction therapy is that it has an excellent safety profile. We can guarantee that no harm will come to your skin as the treatment is entirely free from UV rays and chemicals.

This treatment has been proven to significantly improve many skin conditions such as:

  • Acne
  • Dermatitis
  • Dull skin
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Scarring
  • Signs of ageing (including fine lines, wrinkles and age spots)

  • Other inflammatory skin conditions

How does LED light therapy feel?

At The Skin Health Clinic we offer a pain-free 30 minute treatment. There are no unpleasant sensations during a light therapy treatment. In fact, most clients experience a pleasant gentle warmth similar to that of a sunbed but without the UV rays. You will leave the clinic with your skin feeling thoroughly revitalised with ongoing cellular changes occurring to your skin for days beyond the treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Everyone’s skin is unique, and as such, so is their treatment plan. LED’s can be used as often as every 48 hours, so depending on your specific targeted results, our skin care experts will compose a specific treatment programme tailored to your skin’s needs.

How much will it cost?

We offer 30 minute LED light therapy treatment on your chosen area on the face or body from £45 per session.Treatment Courses are also available. 

LED light therapy is a guaranteed safe, effective, non-invasive treatment that helps rejuvenate your skin to combat a range of skin conditions.
