Light Emitting Diode (LED)
Light Emitting Diode (LED) treats numerous skin issues associated with aging and discolouration, including sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles.
LED treatments provide total skin rejuvenation by increasing cellular turnover, which brings younger-looking skin to the surface faster. Additionally, the light energy is absorbed by darker pigments, causing them to break down and eventually disappear from the surface of the skin.
LED treatments are non-invasive, meaning there's no need for surgery, incisions, or painful injections. Each treatment can take between 30 minutes to an hour; there's no physical downtime associated with the treatment. Side effects include redness, sensitivity, and flaking of the skin, thus allowing newer skin to come to the surface.
Most patients need between 3 to 10 treatments to see their specific skin issues resolved. To learn more about how LED treatments can help rejuvenate and replenish your skin, book your consultation with a Medicetics doctor today.
1. LED erases environmental damage.
Your skin is constantly exposed to environmental damage, including free radicals and pollutants. Fortunately, LED treatments can erase the impact that free radicals and toxins have had on your skin by correcting skin damage and revealing younger skin.
2. LED can improve uneven skin tone.
Even if you don’t have sun damage or hyperpigmentation, a few LED treatments can help you achieve smoother, younger-looking skin.
3. LED can also treat wrinkles and fine lines.
LED treatments are renowned for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially on the face, chest, hands, and neck. It’s a versatile, non-invasive treatment option for clients who want younger-looking skin without going through surgery.
4. Got stretch marks? LED can help.
LED treatments can also target stretch marks, as these are discolourations vulnerable to light energy. It’s recommended that you undergo LED treatments as soon as possible, as older stretch marks are difficult to treat.
5. LED is surprisingly comfortable.
Although LED is delivering light energy, discomfort is minimal. Most patients report feeling a light warming sensation, which is easily tolerable.
You may be a good candidate for LED treatments if:
- You have skin discolouration from sun damage
- You have fine lines or wrinkles
- You are willing to commit to a full treatment schedule
- You have realistic expectations as to how LED treatments can help
The LED treatment itself lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the area that’s being treated. Most clients require 3 to 10 sessions to see optimal results, depending on their particular skin issue.
There’s no downtime associated with LED treatments; patients can resume their normal activities immediately after a session. However, patients should be diligent about using sunscreen after treatments, as the skin will be sensitive to UV rays. Your Medicetics doctor can recommend protective sunscreens, many of which are sold right in the clinic.
