LED Facial Light Therapy
LED light therapy is a non-invasive and painless cosmetic treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to improve the appearance of the skin. It has become a popular part of facial treatments in beauty salons, we’ll tell you what all the buzz is about and introduce to you the different colours of light and their benefits for the skin.

What Is LED Light Therapy


LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, a type of semiconductor device that emits light when an electric current is passed through it. LED light therapy uses different colours of light to target specific skin concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

The therapy is performed by placing a device with LED lights over the face, which delivers the light energy into the skin. The skin absorbs the light, which triggers a series of cellular reactions that result in various benefits for the skin.

LED light therapy is safe, painless, and does not cause any harm to the skin. It’s a great option for those who are looking for an alternative to cosmetic surgery or injectables.

In short, light therapy is a treatment which has been around for about 30 years. It's the process of exposing skin to red, blue, green, cyan, yellow, orange/amber, purple, white, and near-infrared LED light which each have various skincare benefits.

What does light therapy do?
