The Miracle of LED

By: | Tags: , , , | Comments: 0 | November 16th, 2014

As a skin therapist I am privy to cutting edge treatments, products, serums, supplements and more. One of my all time favorite therapies, and one I use frequently in my own treatment room, is Light Emitting Diode Therapy or LED. While LED it is beneficial for all skin types, tones and ages, what I especially love about it is that I can customize different lights to address specific needs within each client’s skin. Results of LED therapy can be seen immediately and only grow greater with cumulative treatments.

The cherry on top? It’s non-invasive and has zero down time.

How it works! (In the simplest scientific breakdown)
Different Colors represent different wavelengths that penetrate the epidermis and dermis per nanosecond. These wavelengths travel to different depths of the skin and signal the corresponding benefits.
