A natural method of skin rejuvenation, red light phototherapy uses the body’s own natural process to help counteract the effects of aging and to enhance and prolong the effects of skin care products.
LED and lamp skin rejuvenation uses natural, variable wavelengths of light to gently stimulate or induce cellular activity to minimize the signs of aging and scar rejuvenation. The interaction of light delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and tubular lamps activates cell receptors causing them to produce collagen or multiply. Skin cells grow 150-200% faster when exposed to wavelengths of light. This is unlike mechanical or chemical anti-aging procedures that effectually wound the skin then work as the body’s response to control the damage caused.
Over time our skin becomes less elastic and collagen decreases. Smoking, stress, environment, diet and hormones all conspire to create lines, wrinkles and aging. Skin changes may be a part of aging but we don’t have to except it.
The number of suggested treatments are (4) 15 minute treatments a week for 3 weeks then once a week for another 4 weeks. This will create a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, pore size, skin texture, skin moisture level, crow’s feet, triggers acupuncture points, stimulates lymphatic drainage and speeds up the healing process. After this a maintenance treatment plan should be followed.
Red light phototherapy treatments are relaxing and pain free and gentle enough for all skin types. Longer periods of use are required for darker skin types to reach optimal results.
