LED Photomodulation Therapy is a painless skin care procedure using mainly red or blue light. There are no side effects and no downtime. Red light rejuvenates skin by stimulating fibroblasts to produce collagen and decreasing the enzymes that breakdown collagen. By building collagen, wrinkles are reduced and skin retains a more youthful, radiant appearance. It improves sun damaged skin, blotchy complexions and fine lines. Blue light safely destroys bacteria on the skin and in the pores to reduce acne. It is suitable for all skin types.
Other light-based skin therapies, including intense pulsed light and laser treatments, rely on heat and thermal injury to create changes in skin appearance. LED Photomodulation does not use heat and there is no trauma to the tissues which means there is no downtime.
LED Photomodulation is FDA-approved for wrinkle reduction. It offers a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. In a process similar to photosynthesis in plants, the LED light interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce more collagen and elastin. This light is emitted in a unique, pulsing sequence that is administered in just minutes.
What does the treatment involve?
You simply need to lie on the bed while the light is applied for 20 minutes. You can listen to music or simply relax. Photorejuvenation treatments are recommended to be performed weekly for 4 to 6 weeks. Acne treatment involves 2 sessions per week for 6 to 8 weeks.
Can it be used with other treatments?
LED Photomodulation can be done on its own or in combination with other treatments. Both red and blue light can be combined with any other treatments, including a facial, chemical peel, SilkPeel DermalInfusion, laser and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
How will I look after the LED treatment?
Mild pinkness may last for a few minutes after the treatment but there is no downtime.
What is the recommended maintenance regimen?
A series of treatments is required to get your skin in shape and looking great. The number of visits may vary depending on the problem being treated. Since the skin will continue to age, maintenance treatments are necessary to prolong and enhance healthier skin.
After a series of treatments, a maintenance treatment every month or so will enhance and prolong the effects. LED treatment works best in conjunction with a good skincare regimen, including sun protection.
