LED Light Therapy
Light Emitting Diodes (LED)
LED systems use different optimized wavelengths (colours) to rejuvenate, regenerate, purify, calm as well as enhance skin texture and tone.
The Beauty Bar provides you with a medical strength LED system which emits a pure, optimized light at specific, narrowband wavelengths to ensure optimal photobiomodulation of target skin and maximum treatment efficacy in wide range of conditions.
How Does LED work…?
LED systems are able to achieve Rejuvenation, Regeneration, Purification, Calming and Toning by delivering an optimum dosage of specific narrowband light to the targeted areas over a relaxing 10 to 20 minute non-invasive, non-ablative treatment session.
Red and Infra-Red (IR) light penetrate deeper into the skin and provide many benefits including improvements of the skin’s appearance and structure.
Blue light works on the very surface of the skin purifying by delivering an anti-bacterial effect.
These outcomes are achieved by causing no or only minor visible skin effect, enabling you to return to normal activities immediately.
Red (633nm) and Infra-red (IR) (830nm) light treatment
The red and IR Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) used, are within the optical window in biological tissue, selectively allowing them to pass deeply into the skin stimulating the naturally occurring regeneration and repair processes.
This is a non-ablative cosmetic treatment which utilizes Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology to treat a variety of conditions. This treatment is a gentle and natural approach to delivering skin treatments much like the process of photosynthesis, also known as Photobiomodulation (“…the stimulation of life processes with light…”). Unlike Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Lasers that rely on thermal injury to prompt the skin to repair itself, LED’s do not produce any heat, red and IR LED light only stimulates naturally occurring regeneration and repair processes of the skin. The choice of the red and/or Infra-red deep penetrating light as part of your treatment program, will be determined by your treating physician/clinician during your consultation.
Your red or IR LED light treatment will be carried out over a relaxing 10 to 20 minute non-invasive, non-ablative treatment session. The initial affects you will see, are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After a course of treatments, you will begin to notice an improvement in tone, clarity and texture.
Blue (410nm) Light Treatment
The Blue spectrum of light delivers a purifying anti-bacterial effect on the surface of the skin.
Like the Red and IR light treatment, the Blue light treatment is a non-ablative cosmetic treatment which utilizes Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology within Blue spectrum. The Blue spectrum of light has a relatively low penetration into tissue due to its shorter wavelength. As Blue light reacts with bacteria, the Blue LED’s are ideally positioned to provide a purifying anti-bacterial effect on the surface of the skin, effectively eradicating bacteria that could cause inflammation during breakouts.
Blue light therapy is a gentle and natural approach, designed to have virtually no side effects. There’s no sensitivity after treatment as with other antibacterial skin treatments such as the use of Ultra-Violet (UV) light, which can be very damaging to skin. However, there may be some change in skin pigmentation but it is only temporary.
Your Blue light treatment will be carried out over several relaxing 20 minute non-invasive, non-ablative treatment session.
Are LED treatments safe…?
There is no pain or downtime, no or only minor visible skin effect. It actually feels calming and many clients fall into sleep during treatment.
What happens during treatment…?
Before starting the treatment, you will be instructed to remove any makeup, sunscreen and contact lenses. You will then be provided safety eyewear which must be worn at all times during the treatment session as the light will be positioned close to your face. Each treatment session could be up to 20 minutes. During and after the treatment, you will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being. Following your treatment session, you can return to normal activities immediately.
How many treatments will I need…?
As part of your consultation, you will be advised on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs. Following an initial course of treatments, we recommend incorporating LED into your regular monthly facial plan.
The Xen LED system from the Aesthetic Bureau is Australian designed from the ground up.
