Light Emission Diode (LED) Facials

The introduction of new generation of Light Emission Diode (LED) devices has improved the results of cosmeceutical-enhanced facials.  Although the mechanisms of LED actions are not fully known, the utilization of deep infrared (940nm), infrared (855nm), deep red (660nm) and light red (630nm) is believed to transfer photon energy to cellular targets without heat or damage.  For example, wavelengths in the range of 630-330mn leads to the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and adenosine monophosphate for repair of damaged cells.  Near-infrared wavelengths (850-940nm) are believed to enhance blood and lymph flow.  Wavelengths in 830nm have been found to increase collagen and elastic fibers.  The range of wavelengths emitted in our LED devices are believed to reduce immediately inflammation (redness, irritation) and treat superficial pigmentations gradually with repeat sessions. 

 

After a medical facial is completed to exfoliate, cleanse and hydrate your skin, LED exposures with our stand-alone deliver these non-synchronized multi-wave emissions over 5-10 minutes to provide you with glowing healthy skin.   With a skin care regimen of repeat treatments, your skin responds with a return to normal of your epithelial cell turn-over, decreased appearance of superficial pigmentations, and increased production of collagen and elastin.
