LED Light Therapy in Santa Monica
LED light therapy is a non-invasive, soothing, and rejuvenating skin treatment that improves skin health on a cellular level. Just as plants absorb then convert sunlight into cellular building blocks, the skin absorbs therapeutic light and uses it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration. This allows the body to produce collagen and elastin, reduce inflammation, increase circulation, treat acne, and speed healing.
LED (light-emitting diodes) light therapy is appropriate for all skin tones and types and can benefit clients struggling with acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, inflammation, rosacea, and eczema.
LED light therapy effectively treats dryness, irritation, inflammation, acne, aging, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.
Light Your Way to Flawlessly Glowing Skin
At KAO Aesthetics, we routinely use LED light therapy in combination with other aesthetic treatments to increase circulation, speed healing, soothe and reduce redness, minimize acne, and promote collagen and elastin production for healthier skin.
LED therapy utilizes varying wavelengths of light, including red, blue, and infrared. The appropriate wavelength will depend on the treatment goal.
Red LED has both a rejuvenating and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It has been proven to stimulate cellular renewal, thereby increasing collagen production. Additionally, it encourages blood circulation and lymphatic flow to eliminate toxins, accelerate healing, promote better absorption of your serums and creams, and produce a skin-calming effect.
Blue LED is a powerful and effective way to treat acne while healing and calming the skin. This wavelength targets the sebaceous (oil) glands, destroying acne-causing bacteria to minimize future breakouts and restore your skin to its healthy and clear appearance.
Each LED wavelength color of light provides unique therapeutic benefits. Blue LED can be alternated with red LED to treat active acne while reducing inflammation.
Infrared light is the most deeply penetrating wavelength of the LED light therapies we offer and is beneficial in treating inflammation and promoting cellular regeneration. When delivered into the skin, infrared light increases collagen, elastin, and other growth factors for anti-aging and wound-healing purposes.
An alternation of infrared and red LED light therapy can accelerate wound healing following surgery and minimally invasive procedures.
