Over time, our skin becomes less elastic. Smoking, stress, sun exposure, excessive alcohol, pollutants in the air and illness all conspire to create lines, wrinkles and scars. Skin changes may be part of the natural aging process, but you don’t have to like it.
A new procedure called LED Skin Rejuvenation is performed by our practitioners for clients from Lynnfield, Wakefield, Peabody, Reading and Andover that uses natural, variable wavelengths of light to gently stimulate or inhibit cellular activity to reduce the signs of aging.
What is LED Light Skin Rejuvenation?
LED Skin Rejuvenation is the interaction of light, delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), to activate cell receptors causing them to produce collagen.
How are LED Light Skin Rejuvenation different from Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy?
Other light-based skin therapies including intense pulsed light and laser treatments rely on thermal injury to the skin’s collagen, water or blood vessels to create changes in the skin appearance. LED Skin Rejuvenation does not rely on thermal energy and the related tissue trauma to effect change. Therefore, clients are not subject to the variables associated with wound healing.
How does LED Light Skin Rejuvenation work?
LEDs offer a totally natural, non-ablative method for skin rejuvenation. The light from the LEDs interacts with cells and stimulates them to produce new collagen and elastin. Studies confirm that the same LED energy can be used to inhibit collagen formation, which can be helpful in the treatment of scars. By manipulating the wavelengths, cells can be turned on and off. Yellow light LEDs are used for photo-rejuvenation. Blue light LEDs are used in the treatment of acne. Red light LEDs are used for PhotoDynamic Therapy.
How many LED Light Skin Rejuvenation treatments will I need?
Typically treatments are spread over several months. The number of treatments and the treatment times will vary depending on the problem being treated, the amount of surface area treated and the area treated. Since the results are progressive, you will notice more correction with each treatment. Since the skin continues to age, maintenance treatments will be required.
Will LED Light Skin Rejuvenation treatments hurt?
No. The treatment is very relaxing. The delivery of the LED energy to the skin is completely pain free. The energy generated by the LEDs is cool and gentle enough to treat all ethnic skin types.
Can I have LED Light Skin Rejuvenation with other treatments?
Yes. Our practitioner performs LED Skin Rejuvenation alone or in conjunction with other treatments. We have found it to be highly complementary with other skin treatments such as Botox and dermal fillers as well as non-ablative laser and IPL treatments.
What are the benefits of LED Light Skin Rejuvenation?
Treatments are less expensive than other light based therapies. The main benefit is a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, brown spots, scars and the amount of redness. In addition, the treatments are pain free with no downtime at all.
What will I feel like after my LED Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
Most clients return to normal activities immediately. What our clients like the most about LED Skin Rejuvenation is that treatments are fast and they don’t have to miss any activities.
