RED LIGHT THERAPY COMBINED WITH OTHER SERVICES

Medical-grade skincare products

After a red light treatment, you can resume your daily skincare routine. Medical-grade skin care products like vitamin C serums and retinol can prove beneficial in combination with red light therapy as they further enhance the glow of the skin.

Ultherapy

Ultherapy is a powerful non-surgical skin tightening procedure that stimulates the creation of collagen and elastin with micro-focused ultrasound energy. Ultherapy can be combined with multiple modalities like exosomes or red light therapy for the most optimal result.

Injectables

Injectables like dermal fillers can be combined with the use of red light therapy. It is partly responsible for better injectable results since it can promote collagen synthesis.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique that involves making tiny and controlled punctures in the skin with fine needles. This procedure increases the body's natural production of collagen, which improves the texture of the skin, minimizes pores, and gives the look of younger skin.

Exosomes

Exosomes are tiny extracellular vesicles, derived from stem cells, play a pivotal role in cell-to-cell communication and carry an array of proteins, lipids, and RNA. In skincare treatments, exosomes are utilized for their remarkable ability to facilitate skin rejuvenation and healing.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Yes, LED red light therapy is beneficial for the skin. This non-invasive therapy uses specific wavelengths of red light to penetrate the skin and stimulate various intracellular processes. It's known for boosting collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leading to smoother, firmer skin. Additionally, red light therapy can enhance circulation, promoting healing and reducing inflammation, making it effective for treating conditions like acne and rosacea. It also aids in improving skin tone and texture, resulting in a more even complexion. LED red light therapy is generally considered safe for all skin types and can be a valuable addition to a comprehensive skincare regimen.

You will see the results after several weeks of the treatment protocol. The treatment results would be best with routine maintenance and a complementary skincare routine.

Following your initial consultation, a treatment plan is customized to meet the needs of your skin. Six to nine sessions spread out over three to six weeks is the standard course of action indicated for optimal skin benefits and long-lasting results. To preserve cellular health, studies suggest doing maintenance treatments.

The duration of effects from red light therapy can vary based on several factors, including the condition being treated, the frequency and consistency of treatments, and individual skin characteristics. In general, the benefits of red light therapy are not permanent and require ongoing treatment to maintain. You may notice immediate improvements in skin tone and a healthy glow right after a session. For more significant and lasting results, such as reduced wrinkles, improved skin texture, or healing of certain skin conditions, red light therapy typically requires a series of treatments. You will often see noticeable results after several weeks of consistent treatment. This may last for many weeks. The best results are seen with maintenance treatments such as weekly treatments. It’s important to note that response to red light therapy can vary greatly from person to person. Factors like age, skin type, lifestyle, and the specific skin concerns being addressed all play a role in how long the effects will last.

LED light therapy is generally considered safe and has minimal risks, especially when compared to more invasive skin treatments. However, like any skincare treatment, there are a few potential risks and considerations to be aware of such as eye safety, photosensitivity reactions, or mild skin irritation, which is very rare.

LED red light therapy does not cause sun damage or skin cancer. Unlike ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun, which can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer, LED red light therapy uses a different spectrum of light that is safe for the skin. LED (Light Emitting Diode) therapy emits light at specific, controlled wavelengths and does not emit harmful UV rays.

The LightStim professional panels are designed with advanced technology and are used in clinical settings. They typically offer a higher intensity of light and may combine multiple wavelengths (colours) of light for varied skin benefits. The panels offer a larger coverage area, treating a wider facial or body region simultaneously. The intensity of light and its penetration into the skin are crucial for effectiveness. Our professional-grade panels have higher output power, leading to potentially more effective and quicker results.
