LED LIGHT THERAPY?
Many celebrities owe their beautiful skin to LED light therapy. Relying on the underlying technology and photo-modulation it aids in giving your skin a healthy glow and more youthful appearance. Led light therapy is a non-invasive treatment and a great alternative to cosmetic surgery.
WHAT IS BIO-PHOTOMODULATION (CELL REGENERATION)?
Bio photomodulation is also referred to as cell regeneration through LED light therapy. LED therapy is a scientifically proven method that uses light of specific wavelengths to selectively energise and stimulate the metabolic activity of cells, it's 100% natural!
The degree to which the light emitted by the LED lamp penetrates and effects the collagen in the tissue depends on its wavelength, that is to say its colour. Red light penetrates deeply into the tissue, note that infrared radiation is invisible but also penetrates deeply.
Orange, yellow and green light penetrates successively less deeply. When light penetrates a cell, the cell will "resonate" and the absorbed light energy will cause chemical and physical changes that stimulate cell activity. This is called ‘photomodulation'.
Action: Its stimulating action awakens the fibroblasts (skin cells) and increases their production of collagen and elastin.
Reduces lines and wrinkles, eliminates red stretch marks and greatly reduces white stretch marks, tightens pores.
Action: Ideal treatment for redness. It improves blood and lymph circulation and muscle tone.
It has a draining and detoxifying effect.
Boosts the immune system.
Action: It directly and effectively tackles the bacteria responsible for acne without any side effects. The light source radiates sufficient energy to improve healing. Blue light is also used to whiten teeth.
Treats acne, heals, and purifies.
Action: It is selectively absorbed by pigment spots and helps to make them fade. It increases energy levels, decreases stress and generally improves the complexion.
Fading of pigment spots, improved oxygenation, and hydration.
The activity of LED light varies with its colour (its wavelength). Light penetrating the skin acts directly on the cells by stimulating synthesis. The cell uses molecules that mimic the effects of a natural growth factor. Each condition responds to a specific colour. It is the combination of light wavelengths and the energy absorbed by the cell that contributes to the therapeutic effect of LED treatment.
HOW DOES LED LIGHT WORK?
Similar to the process of plant photosynthesis, the light emitted by LED (Light Emitting Diode) photo-modulation stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the dermis (the second and thickest layer of the skin). It not only improves the appearance of aging and damaged skin, but also inhibits
collagenase activity, which is the enzyme responsible for the degradation of collagen and the acceleration of the aging process.
IS LED LIGHT PAINFUL?
No. You won’t experience any pain, swelling or redness. A session lasts about 30 minutes, but it is the accumulative effect of regular sessions that achieve the best results.
IS LED LIGHT THERAPY SUITED FOR ALL TYPES OF SKIN?
Yes. All skin types (sensitive, dry, oily) and skin tones can benefit from regular treatment and experience improved appearance, tone, skin texture and radiance.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer or are recovering from cancer you cannot undergo LED light treatment. Since LED light penetrates the skin and regenerates cells you must be cancer-free for at least five years before receiving any LED light treatment.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LED LIGHT?
LED light therapy is a new, non-invasive technique that has no adverse effects on the skin and now downtime. You will be able to apply makeup immediately after treatment and resume your daily activities.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED?
How many treatments are needed depends on the severity of skin issues (wrinkles, acne, redness) and desired results. We generally recommend two weekly sessions for a period of four to six weeks, followed by three yearly maintenance sessions.
WHAT IS PHOTOPORATION?
Photoporation is the opening of the transient micro pores in the outer layer of the skin and cell membrane by applying light emitted by the LED Light Angel. This conveys active ingredients applied to the skin by using a hydrogel mask
To penetrate deeper into the skin.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SESSION?
LED light is applied to clean skin at a few centimeters distance for up to half an hour, depending on the selected light. Mandatory eye protection is provided. Unlike with most cosmetic procedures, it won’t be necessary to avoid sun exposure before of after treatment.
