REVERSE THE SIGNS OF AGING WITH LIGHT THERAPY
LED stands for light-emitting diode. These lights have been in use since the 1960s, but people have only recently begun to use them as a skin treatment. As always, Beauty Therapy Med Spa in Dunedin chooses to be on the cutting-edge with the best skin care technologies possible.
Red, Infrared & Blue Light therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort. Our innovative aesthetic treatments help counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne and acne scarring.
We offer both Lightwave and Celluma LED therapies at Beauty Therapy Med Spa.
HOW DOES LED LIGHT WAVE THERAPY WORK?
LED Light Therapy uses color wavelengths of visible light which have specific skin benefits. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.
The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, or, in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath a light screen while the device does all the work.
WHAT TYPES OF LIGHT THERAPY ARE AVAILABLE?

Near Infra-Red Light
This is the most deeply absorbed wavelength, it increases cell permeability and absorption, smooths lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity, reduces pain and inflammation, accelerates wound healing and heals cystic acne.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT PROCEDURE?
Treatments are safe, simple and easy. LED light therapy is completely non-invasive and does not hurt. All you'll feel is a tiny bit of warmth.
The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual treatment to take up 30 minutes and allow for an additional 20 minutes for pre and post care.
It is so simple and fast that many patients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work. However, the relaxing, euphoric effect usually last throughout the day.
Light therapy is good for all skin types and incredible for rosacea.
