LED Lights: Can They Solve Your Skin Problems?

For radiant skin that glows from the inside out, more and more people are turning to LED Therapy. But LED Therapy is not just the latest skin trend – it’s actually innovative technology that can offer skin benefits across the board. Whether you struggle with acne, signs of ageing, sun spots, rosacea, or just about any other skin concern, adding the power of LED lights to your skincare routine can finally get you the results you’ve been dreaming of.

Keep reading to learn more about how LED therapy works and what skin concerns it can target to give you to reveal your inner glow.

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED (light emitting diode) therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses infrared light in different wavelengths/spectrums to penetrate the skin for a range of skincare benefits. During each treatment, your body’s natural cell process is triggered, which accelerates rejuvenation and repairs the skin.

What can LED Facials Treat?

The benefits your skin will receive from an LED treatment depends on the type of light being used. These are the different types of light and what they offer for skin, both separate and in conjunction with one another:

Blue Light

Blue light has powerful anti-bacterial properties making it ideal for those struggling with acne.

  • Kills acne-causing bacteria
  • Reduces oil production
  • Penetrates deep enough to treat cystic acne
  • Prevents further breakouts
  • Can help treat rosacea and psoriasis 

Red Light

Red, or infrared, light stimulates collagen production, helping to speed up cell regeneration. This type of light also improves circulation and inflammation.

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Calms acne with its anti-inflammatory properties
  • Targets sun and age spots
  • Gives the skin a natural glow

Red & Blue Light

When used together in an LED therapy treatment, red and blue light can work in tandem to boost the overall appearance and health of the skin. During combination treatments, blue light goes in to kill bacteria before red light reduces inflammation and accelerates healing.

These are a few of skin problems that red and blue light can work together to treat:

  • Acne
  • Inflammation
  • Scarring
  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Signs of aging

What to Expect During an LED Therapy Session?

At your chosen skin clinic, you can choose to undergo LED Therapy on its own, or you can tack it onto the end of another treatment. During the session, LED panels will be placed over your face and switched on for 15-20 minutes. You’ll be given eye protection, since the lights are bright.

At Victoria’s Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we have our very own Phototherapy Clinic where clients can sit back and relax in one of our comfortable loungers while the LED lights do their magic.

What About At-Home LED Treatments?

You have probably seen people on Pinterest and Instagram wearing the futuristic (and a little creepy) LED light masks. Even though these have increased in popularity over the years, you’ll achieve the best results from LED treatments when you attend a skin clinic.

During your appointment, skin professionals will match you with the ideal treatments for your skin concerns, and due to the quality of the professional machines, you’ll likely achieve better results in office.

LED Treatments: Beyond the Face

While we offer LED Light facials in our Phototherapy Clinic, we also offer the Total XEN Experience – a full body rejuvenation treatment. Just like the infrared light offers anti-inflammatory and circulation benefits for the skin on your face, it can also provide these benefits across the entire body:

  • Stimulation of wound and soft tissue healing and repair.
