LED Light Treatment

 LED Light Therapy is tailored for acne, rejuvenation, and all skin types.

What is LED light treatment?

LED is a new approach to maximise facial rejuvenation by ways that are non-invasive, whilst respecting the physiology and biology of the skin and muscles. Unlike IPL and other lasers that rely on thermal injury to prompt the skin to repair itself, Light Emitting Diodes (LED) do not produce any heat. They stimulate naturally occurring regeneration and repair processes of the skin. LED light treatment is a very popular treatment as it is painless, has no downtime and has great results. At Ministry of Skin, we are highly skilled in LED light treatment.

What does the treatment involve?

At MoS we offer the Smartlux LED which is known to have more LED numbers and a higher intensity than any other LED on the market. LED is a relaxing and effective treatment used for a number of skin concerns, or simply to provide rejuvenation. It involves relaxing under the LED light for 20-30 minutes, during which time the LED’s stimulate cell reproduction. The light used during LED treatments is not harmful, similar to a light bulb, and can’t cause any allergic reaction and has virtually no side effects.

What are the benefits of LED skin therapy?

The LED will improve hyperpigmentation, redness problems and reduce the signs caused by the skin’s natural ageing process Photobiostimulation is an excellent way to increase collagen and elastin production in the skin, keeping it younger and healthier looking longer and will improve skin healing and recovery times.

The benefits of LED are numerous and can be changed by the wavelength of light we use and how they are combined. Examples of benefits include but are not limited to:

  • General ageing
  • Scarring and wounds
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Eczema
  • Dull skin
  • Dermatitis
  • Joint and muscle pain

What are the different LED lights for skin?

Red Light

Red LED penetrates into the dermis. At this level, it targets skin rejuvenation through its actions on keratinocytes, fibroblasts, endotheliocytes and blood vessels. Red LED is therefore great for increasing collagen and elastin production, increasing blood circulation and protecting cells from damage, resulting in general skin rejuvenation, improvement of skin texture, lines and wrinkle severity. It is a great treatment to maintain healthy vibrant skin.

Blue Light

Blue LED works wonders for active acne. P. acne, the causative bacterium in acne lesions, produce a substance called porphyrins. When these porphyrins are exposed to blue LED, they produce a free radical that selectively kills the P. acne.

Near Infra Light

This light works wonders for wound healing, pain relief, muscle and joint pain, arthritis, muscle spasms, hair regrowth, active acne and skin rejuvenation. It is great post-surgery or after a deep laser treatment to accelerate wound healing and reduce pain and swelling. It can also reduce scar formation, and improve clinical results. You can start IR LED 12-24 hours pre surgery to start the healing process.

What areas can be treated with LED light therapy?

We typically use LED on the face, neck and décolletage, but it can be used on any part of the body, especially to help with wounds, scarring or joint and muscle pain. It is often used in combination with skin peels, lasers and more invasive procedures or surgery to improve results and reduce the healing time.

LED Light Treatment FAQ

What preparation do I need before having it?

Please arrive at the clinic with clean skin, no lotions, creams, perfumes, powders and no makeup on.
Please ensure you have not had any active tanning in the last 2 weeks.
Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to protect your skin.
Ensure all spray tan is removed from the skin.
If you have a risk of cold sores, start taking antivirals 2 days before the procedure.
Do not consume alcohol on the day of the procedure.
If you are unwell or have any skin infections on the areas to be treated, please call us to let us know.

Is LED light treatment painful?

The procedure is very comfortable. In fact, most find it extremely relaxing and fall asleep.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure usually takes 15-30 minutes.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime at all after the LED Light therapy.

What aftercare is required?

You should avoid any form of photosynthesizing medication after the LED light therapy.
You should also avoid exercise for up to 24 hours after the procedure.
You can use your skincare as normal after the procedure.
Make sure you drink a lot of water after the procedure for the next 48 hours.
Always protect your skin from the sun with a good SPF of 30-50+

How many LED light treatments are required?

LED’s can be used intermittently and each treatment will give skin benefits. To get a prominent result you will require up to 10 treatments. However, the particular skin condition you are treating will determine how many treatments will be required to reach your desired result.

How long does the result last and when should it be repeated?

Results from LED are subtle but permanent. However, as skin is a continuum, so further LEDs may be required to reach desired results and to maintain those results.

What treatments work well with this to ensure I look natural?

LED is a very gentle, non-invasive, skin cell stimulation. With ageing, you also get collagen reduction and loss and descent of facial volume. Therefore, for optimal results you may wish to also look at collagen-stimulating treatments, such as SkinPen, Laser Genesis Facial and Fraxel Laser. If you wish to discuss your options further or get a skin treatment plan, book a consultation with our Doctor, Cosmetic Nurse or Dermal Therapists.

Are there any side effects of LED light?

LED is very safe with no, or extremely rare, side effects.
