Light Therapy

Light therapy, often referred to as phototherapy or LED therapy, is a gentle yet effective skin treatment. This non-invasive method utilizes distinct wavelengths of light to tackle a broad spectrum of skin concerns, including but not limited to acne, wrinkles, fine lines, and areas of uneven pigmentation.

The flexibility of LED therapy allows it to be offered both as a standalone 30-minute session and as a beneficial enhancement to various facial treatments available at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic, making it a versatile option for individuals looking to improve their skin’s health and appearance.

What Does LED Light Therapy Do?

This is a versatile treatment that addresses multiple skin issues and conditions effectively. Here’s what it can do:

      • Treat eczema, providing relief from its symptoms.
      • Combat hair loss, encouraging hair growth.
      • Target mild to moderate acne, reducing breakouts.
      • Help manage psoriasis, easing skin redness and irritation.
      • Smooth rough, scaly skin patches (actinic keratosis), which are precancerous spots.
      • Soothe rosacea, minimizing redness and swelling.
      • Reverse sun damage, restoring healthier-looking skin.
      • Accelerate the healing of wounds, promoting faster recovery.
      • Reduce wrinkles, leading to smoother, younger-looking skin.

LED light therapy may also be effective in treating small, superficial basal cell carcinoma (BCC), a common form of skin cancer that affects approximately 3.6 million Americans annually. By offering a non-invasive solution, LED light therapy has become a go-to option for those seeking to improve their skin’s health and appearance safely.

What Can I Expect During LED Therapy?

Pre-Treatment Consultation:

Before your LED therapy session, you’ll undergo a consultation with our skincare specialists. We’ll discuss your skincare goals, concerns, and medical history to ensure the treatment is tailored to your individual needs.

Skin Preparation:

Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This step ensures that the light can penetrate your skin effectively and deliver optimal results.

Application:

Once your skin is clean and prepped, our LED treatment will be applied to the targeted area. Our trained aestheticians will ensure precise application for uniform coverage and maximum efficacy

Sensation:

During the treatment, you may experience a warm or tingling sensation on your skin. This sensation is normal and indicates that the light is stimulating your skin’s natural rejuvenation processes.

Treatment Duration:

The duration of the therapy session will vary depending on the type of treatment being performed and your skin’s response. Our team will monitor the session closely to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the process.

Post-Treatment Care:

After your light therapy session, our team will provide you with detailed instructions for post-treatment care. This may include using specific skincare products, avoiding sun exposure, and following any other recommendations to optimize results and minimize any potential side effects.

How To Prepare?

Before your appointment at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic, here are a few tips to help you prepare:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Limit your sun exposure and avoid tanning beds for at least a week before your appointment. Sunburned or tanned skin can be more sensitive to light therapy and may increase the risk of side effects.
  • Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Stop using any photosensitizing skincare products, such as retinoids or exfoliating acids, for a few days leading up to your appointment. These products can make your skin more sensitive to light therapy.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Hydrated skin can better tolerate light treatments.
  • Remove Makeup and Skincare Products: Before your appointment, cleanse your skin thoroughly to remove any makeup, sunscreen, or skincare products. This will ensure that the light therapy can penetrate your skin effectively.
  • Inform Your Specialist: Be sure to inform your skincare specialist about any medications you’re taking, including prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, and supplements. Some medications can affect how your skin responds to light therapy.

How Do I Know If It's Right For Me?

Before opting for LED therapy at a spa or purchasing a device for home use, it’s wise to seek advice from a dermatologist. This step ensures you get an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan for your specific skin condition. For instance, what may appear as signs of aging or blemishes could actually be skin cancer.

A consultation with a dermatologist will help determine whether undergoing LED light therapy at a clinic like Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic or using it at home would effectively meet your skincare goals.

During a light therapy treatment, a device emitting specific wavelengths of light is placed close to the skin. The light penetrates into the skin and stimulates various cellular processes, promoting skin regeneration and healing. The specific wavelength of light used will depend on the skin concern being treated. For example, blue light is commonly used to kill acne-causing bacteria, while red light is used to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The dual treatment procedure is non-invasive, totally natural, comfortable and takes only 30 minutes to perform. It is very relaxing, and many clients fall asleep during the procedure.

You can immediately return to your normal routine with no redness or peeling.

During your initial the consultation, your skin type and condition will be evaluated to determine that status of your skin. Since it is non-invasive and extremely healthy for your skin, LED light therapy can be done several times a week or once a week for a series of treatments, depending on the desired results.

We recommend a series of six to eight LED light therapy treatments, each spaced one to two weeks apart, to achieve optimal results for certain skin concerns

While most clients see immediate improvement, 6 to 10 treatments will achieve optimal results and a radiant clear complexion. Your skin will be younger-looking with a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll notice increased skin elasticity, redefined and firmer facial contour along with pore size reduction, fewer textural irregularities, acne, and pigmentation blemishes.

The effects of the treatments continue to last for at least three months after a single session, but once a series have been completed, changes can last over one year, depending on the rate of the aging process.

LED light therapy doesn’t treat deep, cystic acne or significantly sagging skin effectively. LED therapy is also not the best option for severe skin conditions that require more invasive treatments, such as deep wrinkles and scars or extensive tissue damage. It’s important to have realistic expectations and consult a skincare professional to address such concerns with appropriate treatments.

LED light therapy is generally safe, but not advisable for everyone. Pregnant women, individuals with light-sensitive skin conditions like Lupus, and those on light-sensitizing medications, including certain antibiotics or Accutane, should consult a physician before considering LED therapy.

LED light therapy is largely safe but may cause temporary discomfort, redness, or inflammation in some people. Rarely, it can also lead to eye strain if eye protection isn’t used. Always follow a skincare professional’s guidance and use protective measures during treatment to minimize risks.
