LED (light-emitting diode) Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions affecting the skin, pain, wound, and hair restoration.
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high-intensity LEDs utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that LED can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve acne-prone skin, skin tone, texture, and clarity, decrease under-eye wrinkles as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and pain associated with arthritis.
Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy. Simply put, the LED phototherapy source provides compromised cells with added energy so the performance of the cell is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastin production in connective tissue to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in our skin and increase the rate of wound healing.
LED Light Therapy treatments are non-invasive, painless, require no recovery time, and can be used safely on all skin types. At Beleza Beauty House & Aesthetics in Tampa, FL, our Celluma PRO device is FDA cleared for the treatment of acne, anti-aging, wound, and pain.
LED light therapy can help treat a variety of skin problems, including:
Anywhere 4-5 sessions are necessary at 2-4 week intervals for optimal results. Some people may notice results after a single session, however a minimum of 4-6 weeks for both acne and any anti-aging skin changes are typically needed.
