Light up your skin with LED therapy — Dermatologists and doctors have been using this non-invasive treatment for 20 years! Find out how it could help you say goodbye to your acne, give your skin an extra glow and improve your skin with other benefits. 

What You Need To Know 

LED Therapy uses energy to trigger your natural process of skin rejuvenation and repair. The treatment is recommended to help with acne, but also sun damage, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other inflammatory conditions, including wound healing, scarring or irritation. When you come in for multiple treatments, LED therapy is able to penetrate your skin at different depths, which causes various reactions in your skin, like fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles! LED therapy is great for all skin types and causes no pain.  

Using LED Therapy To Treat Acne

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, and can affect up to 50 million people each year. At least 85% of Americans experience acne between the ages of 12 and 24 years. When excess oil blocks your pores, it can cause a build-up that leads to a pimple. Bacteria called propionibacterium acne are usually what causes these pimples to form. It is not just teens who suffer from breakouts, but life changes such as these can also affect your skin: 

  • Moving to a new environment 
  • Pregnancy 
  • Hormonal changes 
  • Lifestyle changes

 

Our LED therapy is a great treatment for acne, whether it’s something you deal with on a regular basis or only from time-to-time. The therapy increases your natural hydration levels, which will help shrink the appearance of your pores, regulate oil production and improve circulation. 

More Details 

LED therapy can also be used to help with inflammation and to stimulate collagen production — sounds like a win, win to us! Each treatment session is only 25 minutes long, and treatments are scheduled about once a week. Unlike other topical treatments, blue light therapy has been shown to have minimal adverse side effects or patient discomfort following the treatment.
