What is LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to correct cosmetic skin concerns. These wavelengths are different colors, penetrate at a different depth, and have different effects on the skin.

What Does LED Light Therapy Do?

  • Improves skin complexion
  • Builds collagen for firmer, tighter skin
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps to correct sun damage
  • Performs wound healing and tissue repair
  • Improves circulation 
  • Decreases inflammation

How LED Light Therapy Works

The light energy is absorbed by the skin, which is then converted into intracellular energy. This energy makes the cells function more efficiently, rejuvenates them, and repairs damage. Each LED light color has a different photochemical reaction, and therefore produces a different result in the skin. These results include improving the complexion, building collagen, and correcting sun damage, according to a 2014 study

Conditions LED Light Therapy Targets

Active Acne & Breakouts

LED light therapy’s blue wavelength targets oil glands to make them less active, and has also been clinically shown to kill the P. acnes bacteria that causes mild-to-moderate acne. In addition, the blue light also calms acne breakouts that are already active. As for the red LED light, it reaches deeply into the skin to decrease acne inflammation.

Other Skin Issues

Red LED light works against wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars, and sun damage by triggering collagen, which creates a firmer, smoother, plumper complexion appearance. The skin absorbs the red LED light, stimulating collagen proteins. Red LED light also achieves a radiant, healthy glow because it improves circulation and decreases inflammation.

What to Expect During Treatment

LED light therapy is a quick, comfortable, convenient, non-invasive treatment that does not require any anesthesia. LED treatments can be done using an LED table, light panels, or a handheld device. We will provide you with protective eyewear, and we may also apply a special serum to your skin to help it better absorb the LED light. Treatments take approximately 20 minutes.

Safety and Side Effects

LED light doesn’t produce any heat, so there’s no risk of getting burned. It also contains no UV rays, so it’s not dangerous. In fact, this treatment is incredibly safe. Side effects from LED light therapy are very rare, but may include skin redness, tenderness, inflammation, or rash.


You may see immediate skin improvements from LED light therapy.
