ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL
L.E.D Light Stimulation Therapy
LED Lights, as used by NASA to promote healing, are
now being used to stimulate collagen production. It
has been shown that specific wavelengths [colors] stimulate
specific responses in the body, and it is quickly becoming
one of the most effective and non-invasive ways to help
rejuvenate and repair the skin.
It has also been used to boost hair regrowth, either
as a stand alone procedure or in conjunction with hair
loss treatment products.
How it Works
Red wavelengths and certain infrared [non-visible]
wavelengths will increase cellular activity at the dermal
level. As we age, there is a drop in cellular activity
and energy levels. With the delivery of the correct
wavelengths of LED light, these dermal cells receive
a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost from the light energy.
This boosts a number of natural processes in the skin
- increases blood flow, helping bring nutrients and
cellular growth factors to the treated areas.
- stimulates fibroblast and collagen production to
strengthen sagging, wrinkled skin.
- lymph vessels open and drain more efficiently to
remove toxic waste and promote a healthier looking
In addition, the skin heals quicker, and with less post
surgical or post trauma scarring. LED therapy is safe
for all skin types and ages. There is no down time or
L.E.D. Light Therapy studies have revealed that exposing
the skin to red L.E.D. lights for a little under 20
minutes can plump skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines.
Another study revealed that exposure to L.E.D. lights
for approx. 3 minutes per area can promote collagen
stimulation by 200% within 24 hours.
L.E.D'.s can also help diminish the redness of rosacea
after just one or two uses as well as calm inflammation
and reduce pain.
Therapy can be administered in the home, with units
retailing between $USD500 $2,5000. There is a variation
in the lights used, with some having smaller, weaker
3 - 5 mm lights, whilst other [surprisingly cheaper]
units boasting most powerful 10 mm lights known as ‘Super
Bright’ LED Bulbs.
For anti-aging collagen stimulation, treatments consist
of 3 to 4 minute sessions, a minimum of twice a week;
three times a week for four minutes per area is preferred.
This is best done at night, so that exfoliating can
Next morning, gently remove any dry skin with baking
soda or glycolic cleanser, apply moisturizer and sun
For hair growth apply unit to area for 4 minutes.
If you have thinning or falling hair use the LED Light
Therapy in conjunction with revitalising products.
Hair stimulation takes 2 to 3 months before you see
a regeneration of hair.
