Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of a device that emits light energy to tissue to stimulate different therapeutic responses in the skin. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. As the light varies in wavelength, so does the colour of the light change according to the specific wavelength used.
How does Low-Level Light Therapy Work?
LED light therapy works to increase the skin’s wound healing response due to the promotion of collagen and elastin synthesis. In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high-intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural bio stimulatory effect in human tissue. It further prevents acne breakouts due to its anti-bacterial benefits, promotes an even skin tone and reduce inflammation and erythema in a skin that has been sensitized, therefore it can be used very successfully together with any advanced protocol such as Microneedling, IPL, Laser and Chemical Peeling.
Where did LED Therapy originate?
Red light therapy has been used by NASA to promote faster cell growth to aid in wound healing. It is also used to combat the effects of chemotherapy in cancer patients. Because of NASA's intensive study, the use of red light therapy has also been FDA approved for different aesthetic and anti aging treatments.

What can LED Therapy treat?
Light, in its various guises, penetrates the skin and stimulates mechanisms that can help to eliminate bacteria, plump-out lines and deliver results that are very noticeable. LED light is not as potent as a laser and the results take longer to surface, but it is very safe and there are none of the risks or downtime that can be associated with the more aggressive treatments . 6 to 8 sessions will cause huge improvements. Our LED light device has 3 main coloured lights namely red, blue and green and treat the following conditionsRED LIGHT:
- Helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
