6 Benefits of LED Light Therapy for Skin

If you are dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, acne, redness, discolouration, dullness, or other skincare concerns, read on to learn about the benefits of LED Light Therapy and how this skincare treatment can help.

What Is LED Light Therapy?

LED (light-emitting diode) light therapy is a non-invasive treatment, originally studied by NASA, that naturally promotes wound healing in the skin and provides a host of other cosmetic benefits.

What Conditions Can LED Light Therapy Treat?

LED Light Therapy can be used to successfully treat and address a variety of skin care conditions and concerns, including:

  • Post-surgical wounds
  • Bruises and scars
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Sores and ulcers
  • Burns, injuries, or cuts
  • Skin inflammation
  • Swelling and pain
  • Ageing skin
  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Rosacea and redness
  • Sun damage
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hair loss
  • Mild to moderate acne
  • Rough, scaly spots on the skin (actinic keratosis)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Overall skin rejuvenation
  • Optimal skin health

Red light penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production.

How LED Light Therapy Works

LED light therapy emits varying wavelengths of UV-free, concentrated light rays that work to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, stimulate dermal blood flow, and energise skin cells. It also supports the body’s collagen and elastin production in the body.

The Omnilux LED light therapy system utilises different wavelengths of light including blue, yellow, and red, with each colour being suited to specific skincare concerns. Each wavelength penetrates the skin at different depths and targets different skin concerns:

  • Blue Light – affects the uppermost layer of the skin and the sebaceous glands (oil glands) to help target acne, inflammation, and congestion.
  • Yellow Light – penetrates deeper into the skin and addresses pain relief, skin rejuvenation, muscle spasms, blood circulation, active acne, and wound healing.
  • Red Light – targets the epidermis and can help improve sun damage, pigmentation issues, rosacea, and skin rejuvenation

6 Benefits of LED Therapy

LED Light Therapy is a safe, natural way to enjoy a variety of benefits to the skin with no side effects. Here, we’ll look at six benefits of LED Light Therapy and how it can improve the health and appearance of your skin.

1. Supports Faster Recovery From Surgery

LED light therapy promotes the formation of new blood vessels, supports tissue formation, and promotes the production of collagen. All of these factors contribute to faster healing for wounds and injuries.

Light therapy can also help decrease inflammation and pain in patients recovering from burns, surgical procedures, or skin injuries. Studies also demonstrate less scarring in patients treated with LED therapy for burns, incisions, and wounds.

2. Zero Downtime

There is no downtime required after LED Light Therapy treatment. As opposed to harsh skincare treatments, Omnilux LED Light Therapy will leave you with fresh, vibrant, smooth skin that feels warm, energised, and glowing.

Blue light penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P.acnes bacteria.

3. Safe and Effective

LED Light Therapy is a non-invasive, highly-studied treatment that has been safely and effectively used for well over a decade with no contra-indications.

While Omnilux LED light therapy can be used safely anywhere on the body, the face, chest, and hands are the most common areas treated.

LED Light Therapy delivers natural, powerful results with:

  • Zero downtime
  • No chemicals
  • No pain or discomfort
  • Zero side effects
  • No thermal damage
  • No scarring or discolouration

4. Reduced Inflammation

Did you know many skin procedures can create inflammation in the skin? This leads to side effects, longer recovery time, and pain. LED light therapy reduces inflammation rather than creating it, leading to faster healing, less pain, and improved skin health.

5. Safe To Use With Other Skincare Treatments

LED Light Therapy can be safely used in conjunction with a wide range of skincare treatments, including:

Combining Omnilux LED Light Therapy with other suitable skin treatments can lead to quicker, enhanced results and improved convenience.

6. Boosted Skin Regeneration and Improvements in Overall Skin Health

By penetrating the skin with healing light wavelengths, LED light therapy can help stimulate energy production, support collagen production, and reduce oxidative stress. All of these benefits lead to overall skin rejuvenation and improved regeneration.

LED light therapy decreases inflammation and swelling.

What Can I Expect During An LED Light Therapy Session?

LED light therapy feels similar to basking in the sun – without the harmful, damaging effects. During the pleasant session, you can relax, listen to your favourite music, or snooze.

You will leave your session feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. LED light therapy stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that contributes to feelings of happiness and can be a wonderful natural pick-me-up.

What Results Can I Expect from LED Light Therapy?

After completing your first LED light therapy session, you can expect your skin to feel rejuvenated and fresh from increased oxygen and blood flow to the skin.

After about two weeks, your skin should appear smoother, plumper, and brighter. After four weeks, your skin will begin looking more even, firmer, tighter, and clearer. With continued treatments, results will continue to improve and build on each other over time.

How Many LED Light Therapy Sessions Will I Need?

The number of Omnilux LED light therapy treatments you need depends on the state of your skin and your specific skincare concerns. We will cover this in-depth during your initial consultation.

Many patients see results in only one session, but several LED light therapy sessions are needed to experience the full results. Optimal results are typically seen after a series of 6 to 12 treatments.

There is virtually no sensation during a Light Therapy treatment.
