The LED light therapy technology used at Skin is ideal because it emits a low level power that does not irritate or burn the skin.
The body is made up of cells that are generally capable of healing and reproducing on their own using naturally occurring cellular energy known as adenosine triphospate or APT. When the skin is damaged, APT stimulates cell regeneration to heal and restore the injured area.
Factors such as poor nutrition, a person’s age and the general condition of the skin determine how slow or fast cells may heal. Scientific studies also found that light can stimulate the production of APT for better cell renewal otherwise known as photo rejuvenation.
Skin care specialists take advantage of the therapeutic effects of light by using LED (Light Emitting Diode Technology) to heal skin condiditiond during a light therapy session.
Benefits of LED light therapy
LED is a non invasive procedure. The treatment involves application of light at various surfaces of the skin where it is needed. This means no down time for recovery and you may resume your normal chores after each session. There is also no scarring associated with LED light therapy..-Diminished dark spots, lines and wrinkles. The light rays emitted by the LED lamp stimulate the production of collagen and elastin which fill in lines and wrinkles, giving your face a smooth appearance. As skin is renewed, old skin with dark spots with give way to new spotless skin.
Improved lymphatic system and circulation. Light energy not only stimulates ATP but also blood vessels underneath the skin giving your face a healthy glow.

The prescribed colours are then placed directly on the skin assuring a deep penetration.
Depending on ones age, skin tone, diet and lifestyle, results may be observed immediately or after a series of sessions held one Week apart.
