Get Rid of Lines and Wrinkles with LED Light Therapy
Your living environment, genetics, your diet and your lifestyle habits all play a role in the development of wrinkles. If your skin is starting to sag, or your noticing lines appearing around your eyes and mouth, you could be a good candidate for LED light therapy. This skin rejuvenation treatment works at the dermal level to increase your skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin. It’s a painless procedure that could be the perfect alternative to dermal fillers or a facelift.
Talk to your cosmetic dermatologist about the benefits of LED light therapy, and find out if you could be a good candidate for this skin rejuvenation treatment.
How LED Light Therapy is Performed
LED light therapy is a completely non-invasive procedure that works by delivering wavelengths of light energy deep into the skin. The light energy waves trigger the body’s natural healing response, which causes an increase in production of collagen and elastin. The treatment is completely painless, and the light device can be administered on almost any part of the body. Each session takes about twenty minutes, and the procedure can be performed as part of a customized facial.
LED light therapy is performed on an outpatient basis, and is a relatively simple procedure – you could even have it done over your lunch hour! There is now downtime involved, and you can expect to see results within a few days after your first session.
Most people see better results when they undergo an LED light treatment once per week, or once every ten days. The overall effects of this procedure include strengthening of the skin, toning of the skin, elimination of skin redness, and a noticeable improvement in the skin’s texture.
Are You a Good Candidate for LED Light Therapy?
Unlike some skin rejuvenation procedures, LED light therapy can be performed on all skin types and even on ethnic skin. This is because there are no risks of burning or damage to the skin’s surface. The light waves penetrate the skin’s surface, and do not affect the top layer of the skin.
You may be a good candidate for this skin rejuvenation treatment, if you:
- Want wrinkles and fine lines to disappear
- Are looking for a low-cost and effective anti aging treatment
- Want to reduce the appearance of freckles and brown spots
- Need to keep inflammation of the skin under control
- Want to improve the texture and tone of your skin
- Want to ward off some of the common signs of aging
Many cosmetic dermatologists and medical spas that offer the LED light therapy procedure offer packages of treatments when you book a series. You can plan on having up to ten treatments over the course of several months to achieve progressive results.
