What does LED Light therapy (photorejuvenation) do?
It visibly decreases acne, age spots, blemishes, coarse skin, a dull complexion, enlarged pores, fine lines, perinocular wrinkles, rosacea and skin laxity.
How does the treatment work?
You’ll visit a trained skin care professional who follows precise treatment plans. Herein specific lights will cover the skin areas that are being treated. This will make your face feel warm and relaxed.
What side effects will you experience?
There aren’t any side effects. This is a completely safe treatment that’s FDA approved. However, you do need to be cautious when you use any other treatments or products along with photo rejuvenation. Furthermore, if you’re taking steroid or cortisone injections, are pregnant or have epilepsy, you’ll need to talk to your doctor before using light therapy.
Contraindications for light therapy include:
Pregnancy | Epilepsy | Photo-allergy | Medications that cause light sensitivity (such as Tetracycline) | If you are currently taking steroids or cortisone injections
How long do the treatments take?
A treatment takes 30 minutes. You’ll need to remove your makeup and apply a special product to help with the light therapy.
How soon are results visible?
Your skin will look different after the very first treatment. It will be smoother, better hydrated and have a naturally radiant glow. Between three to five treatments will be needed for you to see long lasting results on those areas that are being treated. Of course, the condition’s severity and your own, personal skin type will help determine just how long results will take.
How long will results last?
Maintenance treatments and a good, home skin care routine are necessary if you want your results to last.
Is LED therapy right for everyone?
Almost everyone benefits from light therapy. However, those who have a slow metabolism or sluggish cellular activity will have the greatest results.
Does this treatment complement other skin care regimens?
While other treatments beautify the surface of your skin, light therapy strengthens and rejuvenates your tissue from the inside out. When these regiments are combined, you’ll get great results on both the inside and the outside too.
Can I immediately reapply my makeup?
Yes, there’s no downtime. However, if you’re combining other treatments, then you’ll need to heed their advice.
Can I go into the sun? Will I lose my tan?
You can go into the sun immediately. Light therapy won’t affect your tan, but you should be using sun tan lotion.
Can I also have retin-A or Accutane treatments at the same time?
Yes, because LED light therapy has a calming effect on your skin, it won’t react to either of these acne treatments.
Is light therapy abrasive or painful? What’s it feel like?
These treatments are gentle, painless and safe because they’re non-abrasive and non-invasive too. In fact, a lot of people not only find it easy to have done but also relaxing too.
Can I have Microdermabrasion at the same time I’m having light therapy?

Will my skin feel any different?
LED light therapy will make your skin will feel livelier, plumper and tighter.
