Light Emitting Diode (LED) therapy has been used for decades. Over time, LED lights can penetrate different depths of the skin to cause specific reactions such as reducing wrinkles, lightening pigmentation including sun damage and melasma, plumping the skin, and helping to eliminate the bacteria responsible for acne. At PFRANKMD™ Skin Salon, we offer LED light therapy with up to 7 light colors: Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, Purple, White, and Indigo. Red stimulates the production of collagen to help fight aging, as well as increasing lymph flow. Blue light kills acne-causing bacteria, as well as reducing pore size. Yellow and Green treat pigmentation, Purple treats redness and rosacea, White brightens the skin, and Indigo calms sensitive skin and is used for relaxation.
LED light therapy is safe and performed at PFRANKMD™ Skin Salon with our Lead Aesthetician, Edyta Jarosz. This treatment is often used as an important part of a full facial or can be done 1-2 times per week for maintenance. Despite the numerous home treatments that have become available, the treatment received from a professional is much more effective. The true strength and wavelength of the LED is imperative for the best results.
LED light therapy has been proven to diminish both wrinkles and fine lines, improve the texture of the skin and increase firmness and elasticity by stimulating the production of collagen. This is one of the most important building blocks for the skin. By the time a person reaches the age of fifty, about a third of the collagen in the skin has been lost. This causes wrinkles, fine lines and a decrease in firmness.
When the skin is firmer and tighter it provides a more youthful appearance. The increase in the production of collagen also works as a preventative for wrinkles and fine lines. After a few treatments there is a noticeable difference in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and the texture of the skin improves. A professional LED device penetrates deeper into the skin because it has a high energy output. The treatment is even over the skin to provide a deeper penetration and the best possible results. We offer the Oxylight by Sapphire 3® which incorporates pure oxygen for moisture and brightness.
LED light therapy has been tested in clinical trials and is considered an extremely effective treatment for anti-aging. The results are dependent on the specific reaction of each individual. This being said, the majority of people who have had these treatments have seen noticeable improvements in the texture of their skin, the firmness of their skin, a decrease in the severity and number of wrinkles and fine lines, and a more even complexion.
