If you are tired of dealing with stubborn acne, fine lines, wrinkles, or uneven skin tone, it may be time to explore the world of LED light therapy. This cutting-edge treatment offered by our aestheticians at Sood Center is non-invasive and can address a wide range of skin concerns and visible signs of aging. Sood Center can provide LED light therapy to patients visiting us.

What Is LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to target various skin concerns. Because of its convenience and effectiveness, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to rejuvenate the skin. 

LED light therapy can make use of numerous wavelengths of light. Our aestheticians use two of the most popular wavelengths, blue and red, to achieve more meaningful results.  

Red LED Light

The red LED light stimulates collagen and elastin production in your skin. The light helps rejuvenate the skin by filling out areas that have sunk due to collagen loss. Common areas include the space underneath the eyes and fine lines and wrinkles around the face. Red LED light also helps fill in acne scars and improve skin texture. 

This type of LED light therapy is especially effective when you pair it with microneedling. The collagen-boosting effects of both treatments have a synergistic effect that allows you to achieve better results than you would with either treatment alone. Microneedling with red LED light therapy is a fantastic anti-aging treatment. 

Blue LED Light

Blue LED light targets acne-causing bacteria lurking on the surface of the skin. This therapy cleans out congested pores to reveal a clearer complexion. Blue light also targets overactive sebaceous glands in your skin to decrease oil production. This treatment alleviates oily skin and helps prevent future breakouts. For this reason, it is a popular choice for people struggling to control acne. 

Blue LED light therapy is frequently combined with soothing HydraFacial treatments to provide a deeper level of impurity extraction and skin rejuvenation. 

Combining Red and Blue LED Light

Combining red and blue LED light therapy allows you to reap the benefits of both types of light therapy and achieve optimal results. When you combine these two wavelengths, the red light helps provide overall skin rejuvenation, while the blue light targets more specific concerns. 

This is a great treatment option for people who struggle with acne and also want to minimize visible signs of aging.

What is an LED Light Therapy Treatment Plan Like?

A single session of LED light therapy does not provide the full effects most people desire. Most people need six to ten treatment sessions, spaced one week apart, to meet their cosmetic goals. 

It is important to note that the exact number of treatments required will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals. Our aestheticians will give you a better idea of what your treatment plan will look like when you meet with them for a consultation. 

Is There Any Downtime After LED Light Therapy?

One of the biggest benefits of LED light therapy is that there is no downtime or lengthy recovery period after your treatment. You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after LED light therapy. This makes it easy to squeeze in treatment sessions on your lunch break without disturbing your work schedule. 

You will need to perform minimal aftercare, however. After receiving LED light therapy, your skin is more sensitive and vulnerable to sun damage. It is important that you avoid direct sunlight for several days after your treatment, and always apply strong sunscreen before going outside. 

Our aestheticians will review the aftercare instructions with you during your consultation and again on your treatment day. 

Is LED Light Therapy Right for Me?

LED light therapy is right for most adults who want to minimize visible signs of aging on their faces. However, the only way to know for sure if LED light therapy is right for you is to have a consultation with our aestheticians. They will assess your skin’s condition and review your medical history to determine whether LED light therapy is a good fit for you. 

During your consultation, our aestheticians will also discuss a few factors that may alter the effectiveness of your treatment. For many people, LED light therapy is extremely effective, especially as part of a larger treatment plan involving other procedures. Medical professionals are still researching the full effectiveness of light therapy.

Although LED light therapy is safe for all skin types, there is a chance that it may irritate your skin. That is why it must be carefully and considerately used to achieve the desired effects and minimize, if not fully prevent, any potential irritation.
