What is Red Led Light Therapy?
LightStim Therapy uses LED technology to emit multiple wavelengths (or colors of light); these wavelengths of light work together to give your skin the nourishment it needs for a more radiant and youthful appearance.
Each LED wavelength provides a unique, therapeutic benefit and is UV-free. LED light (which stands for Light Emitting Diode) has been shown to accelerate the skin’s healing process, initially used by NASA! It then was picked up by the skincare world and translated into the red light therapy facials you see today. Red LED lights within a particular range, as is the case with LightStim, have shown to trigger an increase in collagen, cell metabolism, and lots of other benefits- see below!
Red light therapy can help to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Shrink pore size
- Reduce redness (especially post-treatment redness)
- Stimulate collagen
- Optimize your overall skin function
- Improve skin tone
- Promote a glowing, healthy complexion
- Red light therapy is non-invasive, painless, and requires no downtime!
Is it safe for all skin types?
Yes! LightStim red light therapy is good for skin types and tones. It is designed to emit a soothing, gentle warmth and is not an aggressive treatment by any means.
Whether you’re adding it onto another treatment or as a standalone one, the process is the same. You’ll be lying down, relaxing, with the LightStim device about one inch away from your face, and letting your skin absorb all of the light.
Included with our Wet Diamond HydraFacial!
When you schedule a Wet Diamond HydraFacial, this LightStim red light therapy is included and comes at the end of your treatment.
You’ll receive a pre-treatment steam to open pores and ease extractions. Then an elevated HydraFacial with our Wet Diamond Tip (a HydraFacial and microdermabrasion all in one treatment). Then finally, the LightStim LED light therapy. This will help to calm and reduce any post-treatment redness that you may experience from the Wet Diamond HydraFacial.
Again, LED light therapy is good for any type or tone. If you’re interested in getting your glow on and optimizing your skin function, give us a call at (513)-791-9474 to schedule your treatment or to set up a free skincare consultation.
