LED light therapy is a noninvasive and pain free treatment that promotes a feeling relaxation and wellbeing whilst rejuvenating the skin. Exposure to the light can increase serotonin levels which in turn help to relive stress, tension and headaches. Any feeling of ‘heat’ is most often due to the stimulation of blood circulation.

The number of treatments can vary with age, skin type and condition. With light therapy the results are cumulative and improvement will continue even after the treatment has stopped. Treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.

Results can last for several months following a course of light therapy treatments. However, as with any skin treatment, maintenance sessions are advised to ensure lasting results.

Visible light will not cause any damage to the eye, even with deliberate exposure. As the light is very bright, we recommend the use of the protective eye goggle provided for comfort purposes. With infrared light, client goggles must be worn for the duration of the treatment.
I am taking medication from the doctor can I still have light therapy?
There are certain circumstances in which light therapy may prove to be unsuitable. Certain medications may causes photosensitivity and specific conditions may be triggered by light. For your safety and comfort, it is imperative that any medication illness, condition or other treatment that you may be undergoing are fully disclosed during your consultation.
Does light therapy produce the same light as sunlight?
LED light therapy uses specific wavelengths of visible light. Sunlight is made up of a whole spectrum of visible and invisible wavelengths that we see as white light or ‘day light’. Light therapy uses only safe wavelengths that are proven to have therapeutic effects in the skin and does not contain UV wavelengths.
Will light therapy give me a tan?
No. Light therapy does not contain the harmful UV rays that stimulate the melanin in the skin to produce a ‘sun tan’ effect. However, LED’s stimulate hydration and blood circulation and will instantly give your skin a healthy and radiant glow.
Can I go in the sun after light therapy?
Yes. As light therapy does not create photosensitivity, light therapy is safe directly pre and post sun exposure. In fact, it is particularly beneficial at this time to strengthen and replenish the skin and repair damage caused by UV exposure.
