LED Phototherapy

Light Emitting Diode (LED) Light Therapy uses Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) with HEALITE 2 to enhance the body’s natural cellular recovery.

The LED lights used are soothing and penetrate deeply into the skin tissue. It stimulates healing by increasing blood circulation and lymphatic activity which can maximise their natural functions. LED light therapy can reduce healing times, relieve pain, improve acne and promote skin rejuvenation.

LED Light Therapy is a painless, safe and effective non-abrasive treatment. There are three types of treatments, red light therapy, blue light therapy and yellow light therapy.

The blue light therapy (415nm wavelength) has bacteriocidal activity and is effective in treating acne.

The red light therapy (633nm wavelength) is used for the treatment of rosacea, anti-aging, hyper-pigmentation and sun damage. The red light reaches deeper into the skin layers and stimulates collagen fibre cell growth, improving cell metabolism and making the skin more elastic and smooth.

The yellow light (830nm wavelength) penetrates more deeply. I is useful in promoting skin rejuvenation and hair growth, arthritis and muscle pain, & wound healing particular post surgery.

Combinations of light wavelengths are used depending on patients condition and treatment aim. Treatments generally last 10-20 minutes.
