LED – Light Therapy Facials
Light has long been known to have health and anti-ageing benefits – LED skin treatment harnesses the power of red light to reduce or even eliminate some of the worst aspects of skin ageing, and blue light to kill the acne bacteria and reduce acne inflammation. These are suitable for men and women of all ages.
Anti-ageing LED facial treatment emerged from groundbreaking research using LED to treat the side effects of cancer and other serious illnesses.

WHAT IS LED:
Leading on from initial work at NASA where LED’s were used to speed up plant growth, research with cancer patients revealed the power of red light skin therapy for rejuvenation. Researchers noticed that LED light therapy regenerated skin tissue, boosted collagen production and improved the appearance of the skin.
The great thing about LED skin treatment is that LED uses the body’s own natural processes to rejuvenate your skin. It is a totally natural form of non-surgical facelift and is very appealing compared to facial surgery or skin resurfacing which damage the skin, causing pain and trauma.
LED light works on human tissue at a cellular level – transferring energy deep into the cell structure of the skin to help the human body repair itself. In the same way plants need light to grow it can also speed up or slow down natural chemical processes in the cells of the human body.
LED equipment was then developed for use by dermatologists to treat a range of skin disorders like acne and rosacea and as a pain-free alternative to facial surgery for skin rejuvenation.
Photo-rejuvenation is the use of various colours of light to stimulate and energise cellular activity, which in turn creates collagen and elastin for anti-ageing benefits.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS: LED is a painless, non-invasive treatment that works under the surface of the skin to make your skin glow. It is so painless you may even wonder why you don’t feel anything!
