LED Photo-Facial Therapy at Avora Skin Spa, Coquitlam
Light Emitting Diode (LED) therapy is a revolutionary anti-aging skin care procedure that is used to treat multiple adverse skin conditions. LED therapy results in improved skin and a more youthful appearance. LED photo-facial rejuvenation is ideal to complement anti-aging skin care programs, often used in conjunction with microdermabrasion and non-aggressive chemical peel skin treatments. In addition to a more youthful appearance, patients experience a dramatic improvement of acne and fine lines.
LED produces multiple wavelengths of visible and invisible light delivered at low intensity. Because there is little or no heat generated from LED there is no risk of tissue damage.
LED technology was originally developed to enhance the growth of plant tissue in space by NASA. NASA’s space program also proved that LED light promotes wound healing and human tissue growth. It is for these reasons that LED therapy has become a significant and useful aesthetic procedure.
LED therapy is the application of sending a broad band of energy at a low intensity to the skin for therapeutic and anti-aging purposes. LED photo facial treatment is effective in generating a response within living tissue because it activates and stimulates the ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) within the body. ATP governs how cells use energy and when ATP use is enhance from LED exposure, it prompts affected cells to do what they do naturally, but at an accelerated rate.
LED photo facial therapy increases energy that subsequently prompts skin fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin proteins, along with stimulating a healing response by the body. This triggers the body to convert light energy into cell energy without thermal injury to skin tissue. Studies show that cells exposed to LED light grow 150% to 200% faster because the light delivered enhances cellular metabolism, accelerates repair and replenishment of damaged skin cells.
Benefits of LED photo facial light therapy includes the following:
• Stimulates collagen formation
• Increases ATP (fuel for cells)
• Stimulates cell turnover
• Reduces mild scaring
• Reduces hyper-pigmentation
• Reduces pore size
• Reduces wound healing time
• Reduces inflammation
• Smoothes and improved surface
• Reduces pigmentation caused from acne lesions
• Increases circulation and moisture retention.
Initial Treatment Sessions for LED Photo Facial
Initial treatment sessions are as follows:
• For acne, 3 sessions per week for 2 weeks with maintenance sessions every 1 to 2 months after these initial 2 weeks of treatment.
• Conditions like rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, sun damage, anti-aging, collagen stimulation and irregular skin texture: One session per week for 6 weeks with maintenance therapy sessions once every 1 to 2 months.
BLUE LED Acne Treatment
Acne vulgaris is one of the world’s most common skin conditions, resulting fron the obstruction bacterial colonization and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles. Acne stems from abnormal amount of bacteria, mainly propionibacterium acne ( P.acne), resulting in an inflammatory condition. The P.acne bacterium produces metabolic product named Porphyrin. When exposed to blue light Porphyrin produces singlet oxygen which kills bacteria responsible for acne. Blue LED Acne treatment at the wavelength 470nm uses the natural visible light spectrum at a specific wavelength that is both natural and non invasive. Unlike lasers and IPL devices, Blue LED targets bacteria without thermally affecting the surrounding tissue. High spectral purity insures that clients will not be subjucted to UV, IR or excessive radiation as with lasers and IPL devices. Sebaceous glands will return to their natural state without being thermally altered.
Pigmentation Green LED Treatment
Green LED light spectrum at 525 nanometers acts directly on melanocytes and hyperpigmentation:
• By decreasing melanin production;
• By having a photo-lightening effect on superficial pigmentation;
• Reduces redness.
Conditions that preclude LED therapy include the following:
• Thyroid Conditions
• Open wound(s)
