Healite light therapy is a non-invasive treatment for rejuvenating healthy skin
The desire for minimally invasive treatments is on the rise with more than a billion dollars spent internationally since 2010.
As social platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat have increased in popularity, celebrities are sharing snaps of themselves undergoing treatment. The most often cited example of this are the Kardashian sisters. When these celebrities vicariously endorse a product by taking a selfie during treatment, hundreds of thousands of people suddenly take notice.
Subtle, minimally invasive treatments which produce results quickly are always popular
LED light therapy can produce a variety of results depending on your skin concerns and tailored treatment. Two of the more popular treatment options are:
- Red light therapy: this is an effective treatment for lines and wrinkles.
- Blue light therapy: this effectively treats acne and other associated skin complaints.
The treatment duration is typically 40 – 60 minutes, dependent on the severity of the skin concerns and your desired outcome.
As an effective and minimally invasive treatment for acne scars, lines and wrinkles as well as dermatitis, LED light therapy may require 6 -12 treatments to achieve optimal results.
Low-Level Light Therapy treatment
Low-Level Light Therapy is a phototherapy system using light emitting diodes in precise wavelengths delivered onto the treatment site. This light energy is converted into cell energy, stimulating and activating cellular processes deep within the skin layers.
The red LED light stimulates collagen production and acts as a skin hydrating and anti-ageing agent. The improved cellular activity will draw moisture, add volume and is particularly effective for reducing pore size.
The blue LED light effectively treats acne scars and neutralises bacteria with a combined anti-inflammatory and tissue healing agent.
