LED Light Therapy in San Antonio


LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is a painless, relaxing, non-invasive skin-care treatment that has multiple benefits—particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne. LED treatments work by using an array of bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA!) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin.

*Red light LED stimulates cellular activity, including the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. That helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks, and reduce redness after more aggressive treatments. The results won’t be as dramatic as plastic surgery, IPL or laser, but it’s a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go. 

*Blue light LED works by killing Propionibacterium acnes, the bacteria that lives below the surface of the skin and is responsible for acne.

*Green light LED calms inflammation and helps reduce Hyperpigmentation.

*Amber light LED Aids in the production of collagen and elastin. 

Both are highly effective when part of a series—usually six treatments one to two weeks apart, followed by a maintenance treatment once a month. LED treatments last about ten to twenty minutes, and can be a stand-alone treatment or part of a facial. They are given by an esthetician and usually cost somewhere between $75 to $125 a treatment as a standalone. 

Recommended LED Protocol

The recommended professional LED protocol is six treatments a week or two apart, followed by a maintenance treatment every month or two.  LED treatments are painless and relaxing, and in winter have a side benefit of counteracting seasonal affective disorder (SAD). 

The Led treatment can take anywhere from twenty minutes to thirty minutes.

Your eyes can't be hurt by LED light so they don't have to be covered.  LED light therapy treatments are a good choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat mild to moderate acne.  Unlike IPL or laser treatments, LED treatments carry no risk of burning.  An IPL treatment delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device, and can be uncomfortable, even painful.  LED treatments are actually very soothing.
