Six Skin Benefits You Need to Know Now Before Getting LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy, it’s everywhere. We’ve been using LED (Light Emitting Diode) in our practice since we opened in 2002. Chiefly, because it is such a safe, effective and powerful treatment whether on its own or when used to enhance other cosmetic and anti-aging treatments. This type of therapy uses different colors of light to target specific skin concerns, like acne or dullness. And it’s not just for your face—LED light therapy can be used all over your body.

LED light therapy is safe, painless, and a great way to achieve glowing skin. Busy season is coming up and this may be the perfect 20-minute treatment for you. We’ll have you in and out before lunchtime. Finally, let’s jump into the six things you should know before getting LED light therapy.
1. What Exactly is LED Light Therapy and Why Is It Good For Me?
LED light therapy is a non-invasive light therapy procedure that delivers low-level pulses of light. It is up to three times brighter than the sun to activate skin cells. It works like photosynthesis for the skin, converting light energy already found in skin cells. This will then promote healing and anti-aging effects. In a Medical Spa setting, we use it primarily to help promote anti-aging and skin rejuvenation effects. It also reduces inflammation and helps penetrate skin care products more effectively. Even though we use LED Light Therapy for a variety of conditions, the most universal benefit is that it increases the amount of collagen. This in turn helps to reduce the appearance and wrinkles and that is always a good thing.
2. What skin conditions Benefit Most from LED Light Therapy Treatments?
LED light therapy is the process of converting light energy into cellular energy for natural, non-invasive skin rejuvenation. A combination of these wavelengths: Red light therapy, Blue light therapy, and Infrared light therapy, work for anti-aging therapy, wrinkle treatments, scar treatments, acne treatments, and more. Blue and Red light can also be used to activate PDT or Photodynamic Therapy. Which is used primarily when treating acne.
The Red light therapy component of Lightwave therapy increases circulation. This LED light therapy technique can work as an:
- Anti-aging therapy
- Wrinkle treatment
- Scar treatment
- Acne treatment
Of course, equally important to Red light is Blue light therapy and Infrared light therapy.
Blue light therapy involves targeting one of the main causes of acne which is the presence of P. Acnes bacteria within the skin. Once the skin absorbs blue light, molecules within the skin produce singlet oxygen and free radicals. This will kill the P. acnes bacteria.
As for Infrared, it’s an invisible light that increases collagen and elastin production and nourishes damaged tissues. LED light therapy is effective, affordable, and pain-free, from its use as a body treatment and scar treatment to anti-aging therapy and wrinkle treatment;
At Beautique Medical Spa, we have taken LED Light Treatments a step further. After carefully researching many devices available we invested in the LIGHTWAVE Therapy System. LIGHTWAVE therapy is LED light therapy and offers the most sophisticated and cutting-edge application in the industry. LIGHTWAVE LED therapy utilizes Red light therapy, Infrared light therapy, and Blue light therapy. All for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, acne scars, and more. This innovative system allows us to use the Power of Light to provide true skin transformation at the cellular level.
Through this state-of-the-art technology Lightwave, LED therapy utilizes Infrared and Red light therapy to convert light energy into cellular energy. This cellular energy increases cellular metabolism and aids in collagen production. This anti-aging Lightwave therapy has a regenerative effect on:
- Smoothing Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Diminishing Acne scars
- Firming Sagging, Flaccid skin
- Reversing Sunspots
Safe for all skin types, LED therapy has no negative side effects. Not only is light therapy painless – from Red light therapy to Infrared – but actually soothing and relaxing. And whether Lightwave therapy is used for the body, acne scars, or as an anti-aging treatment for wrinkles, the recovery time is zero.**
3. How to Get the Best Results From Your LED Light Therapy Session
LED treatments are safe, natural, and pain-free. After a comprehensive skin analysis, your skin expert will have you lie down on our oversized, plush bed. As soon as she covers you with our soft and cozy Comphy brand blanket, you’ll be ready to relax and “let go” of the outside world (no phones allowed). Before the LED part of your treatment begins, your skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup. And while this is one of our medical-grade treatments, at Beautique Medical Spa, you will experience luxurious pampering in every treatment. Depending on the results you are desiring to achieve, the treatment begins. For LED Light treatments a typical session has you lying under the light panels for about 20 minutes. The lights emit a gentle, relaxing warmth.
If you are going to get a BeautiLight Facial which is when we are able to drive in serums, masks, and creams by harnessing the power of light for true skin rejuvenation treatments. The process would be practically the same, just a little longer. Because like a perfectly choreographed dance, a BeautiLight Facial is pretty much a sophisticated facial choreography. A beautiful combination of lights and powerful ingredients transformed to penetrate deep below the skin’s surface to stimulate the cells into producing collagen. Regardless of which LED treatment you’re receiving, there is serious kickback and relax – even feel free to take a quick nap time and let the lights do their work! You won’t feel a thing.
4. How many treatments are required Before I see Results?
The number of treatments will vary depending on your needs. Some may only require a few treatments, while those with more chronic conditions affecting the deeper tissue layers may require more sessions. Typically a minimum of 3 sessions is needed for almost any type of skin service to see results because the life cycle of a cell is about 28 days
With BeautiLight Facials, most clients experience immediate results such as:
- Glowing Skin
- Softer skin texture
These treatments are considered “Red Carpet” treatments, you know the kind that celebrities will get before a big event. Except for acne treatments and deep cleansing treatments, most of the BeautLight Facial Treatments are ideal for any sort of event. However, long-lasting results can only be achieved with a series, and the exact number of sessions depends on what outcome is desired.
But you don’t need to worry because that’s what the consultation is for.
5. How effective is LED light therapy?
Many anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatments involve invasive, painful, and often expensive means of correction, which can prove ineffective. LED Light therapy treats the skin from the inside out. Instead of just treating external skin damage, it works at the cellular level to promote healing before it is evident on our faces. Clients are seeing amazing results, particularly those with acne. The device that we use is FDA cleared as safe, natural, and pain-free. While we already mentioned that in some BeautiLight treatments that feature LED Light Therapy it is possible to enjoy immediate results. Also to see long-lasting improvement in the skin, regular treatments are suggested and required when following our programs.
Recently the use of home LED devices has become very popular. Although they can provide some help, there is no substitute for in-office LED Light Therapy such as what Beautique Medical Spa offers. Our devices use more powerful strengths than any in-home products can provide. Generally, making in-office treatments more effective and in the end affordable. Plus, under the guidance of a trained professional, you’ll be sure that any topicals, supplements, and medications you may be using will never interfere with skin treatments. Your safety is our priority.
6. How to Determine Whether LED Light Therapy Will Be Beneficial For You?
LED Light therapy is safe and effective on all skin types. It is the most effective, non-invasive skin rejuvenator, and its proven results make it an affordable solution for clearer, younger-looking skin. Additionally, it also significantly enhances the results of chemical peels, photofacials, and neurotoxin treatments (such as Botox and Jeuveau). The secret power of this anti-aging service is that it plays nice with just about everybody, meaning that it enhances practically any cosmetic medical skin treatment, providing you with out-of-this-world results!
However, keep in mind that prior to any treatments at Beautique you will consult with one of our highly experienced skin experts. Where we will provide a skin assessment using a highly sophisticated system that uses TruSkin Age™ technology to evaluate your overall skin condition and “estimated skin age” – also known as the VISIA.
This will help us determine exactly what your skin baseline is and what treatments would work best to quickly get you to your ultimate skin goal.
Furthermore, if you’re looking for a way to improve your skin without harsh or toxic chemicals, or surgery, or simply don’t want any downtime – then reap the benefits of LED light therapy. At Beautique Medical Spa, we have over 20 years of experience helping our clients achieve their desired results.
