LED Light Therapy is a natural treatment that can help with acne.
Brazilian Beauty were kind enough to answer all our questions about LED Light Therapy, so you can decide whether it could be right for you:
How does LED Light Therapy work?
LED Light Therapy is a modern day miracle for problematic skin types.
The technology works by using two different coloured light strengths.
A sterilising blue light kills bacteria in the skin, making the follicle uninhabitable for future infections.
A red light promotes and accelerates the skin’s natural healing process, normalising sebum production and preventing acne scarring. This light also activates collagen and elastin production, while attracting vital nutrients to the dermal layers.
What is involved in the procedure?
LED Light Therapy is simple.
During the treatment, you will be asked to lay back and relax with your eyes closed. The LED panels are then placed around the treatment area and left to work for the duration of the treatment. An appointment will take between 30-40 minutes, depending on the area treated.
Who is it best suited to?
LED Light Therapy has benefits for all skin types and ages, treating a number of skin issues including:
- Rosacea and sensitised skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Pigmentation and age spots
- Acne scarring
If you have begun to notice slight irregularities in skin pigmentation, or the fine lines on your face are becoming more pronounced, LED Light Therapy is for you!
What are the potential side effects?
There have been no recorded adverse reactions to LED Light Therapy, making it a safe and simple skin solution.
Does it hurt?
LED Light Therapy is completely pain free. It is a non-invasive, relaxing treatment producing amazing results. The treatment is fast and requires no down time – a perfect lunchtime facial!
What type of results should we expect?
You will notice a difference in your skin immediately after the treatment, Your skin should feel tighter and firmer, as the collagen should be in higher production. Any wrinkles and lines will diminish in appearance, as well as blemishes and age spots. Overall, the treatment should result in a younger, better looking you!
How long should the results last?
The visible effects of LED Light Therapy will likely last for a very long time. However, it is not a miracle cure that freezes your skin in place for all eternity.
How many treatments are required?
You will see results after just one treatment, however, to maintain great looking skin, it requires a little dedication. Six to 12 treatments are recommended, occurring once a week. At Brazilian Beauty we develop an individualised treatment program for each client. It is beneficial to book maintenance sessions after your initial course has run out, as your skin will still age.
What should we look for when choosing a therapist?
When choosing an LED Light Therapy treatment provider ensure the company is reputable with proven results, trained therapists and a high level of customer service and expertise.
It is important to choose a professional therapist with experience using the treatment to achieve results tailored to individual skin types. All Brazilian Beauty therapists are qualified and provided with specialised, ongoing training in all advanced skin treatments.
Your therapist will consult your skin beforehand using a skin scanner to identify your concerns and will choose a setting that is best suited to you.
Are there specific products that need to be used after the treatment?
We recommend using fresh, active products with natural ingredients, such as those from the Australian Skin Institute range.
It is important to keep your skin hydrated using serums and masks. We recommend using ASI Pure Hydration Plus morning and night.
To accelerate the results exfoliate after 4-5 days using a professional exfoliant such as ASI Pure Pro Exfoliant.
Avoid sun exposure before and after the treatment and ensure you always protect your skin with a professional SPF.
How much does LED Light Therapy cost?
LED Light Therapy is completely affordable. An individual treatment at Brazilian Beauty is $75, with packages combing other skin treatments available.
