Everything You Need to Know About LED Facials
LED light therapy facials are all the rage right now, and for good reason. The safe, painless light treatments can do wonders for your skin and effectively treat skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and collagen loss. You may have seen xsLED masks that people are buying for at-home use, but the LED treatments that are offered at salons and spas are typically stronger. Here is everything you need to know about LED facials.
What is an LED facial?
An LED light therapy facial is a non-invasive beauty treatment that exposes your skin to light energy at specific wavelengths to treat different conditions. Overall, light therapy stimulates cellular growth and repair and can make your skin look luminous. LED light therapy is often an add-on service that is done when you are getting a facial or massage, or you can get it on its own. You simply lay under a screen that exposes your skin to a certain type of light – or your esthetician may use a handheld LED device that they direct to specific trouble spots.
What types of light are used?
The good news is that LED facials do not use any UV light, which means you won’t get a tan, burn, or have any skin damage from the treatment. Blue light has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and reduces oil production, so it is an effective treatment for acne and rosacea. Red light, one of the most common types of light used for LED therapy, is recommended for preventing or reversing the signs of aging, brightening and tightening skin, evening out skin tones, and boosting collagen production.
What to expect with an LED facial
You won’t feel anything when you are exposed to the light and there are no side effects. However, you should know that you’ll need to get your LED facials on a regular basis to achieve and maintain maximum results. Many people are enjoying the many benefits of these high-tech light treatments which is why they are so popular today.
