LED phototherapy involves treating the tissues with light of a certain wavelength and low energy (unlike most lasers) which penetrates the skin. The degree of penetration depends on the wavelength of the light used. Light affects the tissue in a variety of ways causing mainly a photochemical effect, i.e. stimulating cells to increase the secretion of certain chemical compounds or inhibiting the secretion of others. For example, it affects cell membranes and cellular energy centers -mitochondria, increasingATP synthesis. This enhances the efficiency of the cells and their ability to regenerate.
LED light therapy increases the effectiveness of treatments and accelerates the process of skin regeneration. Visible light fosters many positive physiological phenomena: from soothing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial to fibroblast stimulating and tissue blood supply. Specific action is related to the length of the light wave used.
Red light (635nm) increases cell activity, speeds up metabolism, reduces and soothes post-operative irritation (including redness and inflammation) as well as accelerates wound healing. In addition, it stimulates fibroblasts to work more intensively, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, thus improving skin elasticity. It brings very good results in terms of delaying the aging process, reducing wrinkles and discolorations.
Infrared light (835nm) stimulates and increases cellular metabolism. It affects the expansion of blood vessels and improves microcirculation, which improves exchange of nutrients and helps remove toxins. This light is effective in the treatment of inflammation, wounds and injuries.
Green light (525nm) accelerates wound healing and inhibits the production of melanin (patches, discolorations). It has a neutralizing, balancing and soothing effect, can relieve tension and is effective in eliminating edema.
Yellow light (590nm) stimulates collagen synthesis and improves circulation, and thus increases cell oxygenation. Especially recommended for the treatmentof aging and flabby skin.Blue light (415nm) is mainly used to treat various forms of acne because of its strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
The treatment consists of irradiating the treatment area for 10-30 minutes with light emitted by LEDs with appropriately selected parameters. The treatment is completely painless. To achieve the best results, a series of 2 to 20 treatments is performed at intervals recommended by a specialist.
The effects of LED light phototherapy
- acceleration of skin recovery treatment (inflammation, chronic eczema, scleroderma, mycosis)
- accelerating the treatment of scars and stretch marks (in the inflammatory phase or remodeling)
- reduction of acne
- reducing oily and combination skin
- erythema reduction
- inhibition of discoloration
- cellulite reduction
- better wound healing
- skin rejuvenation
- reduction of hair loss
- acceleration of hair growth and thickness
- reduction of muscle and joint pain/ stiffness
- swelling reduction
- faster tissue regeneration e.g. after laser therapypain relief
- skin revitalization
- treatment of skin problems (inflammation, chronic eczema, scleroderma, mycosis)
- treatment of scars and stretch marks
- acne treatment
- oily skin
- erythema and dilated capillaries
- hard to heal wounds
- wrinkles or skin rejuvenation
- hair loss therapy
- muscle and joint pain or stiffness
- faster regeneration, e.g. after laser therapy
- relieving pain
- isotretinoin based acne therapy (in the case of LED therapy it is a relative contraindication)
- taking medications or herbs sensitizing your skin to light
Frequency and number of treatments
The frequency and number of treatments depends on the type of skin, the severity of the problem to be corrected and the expected effects by the patient. The exact therapy scheme is determined individually for each patient during consultation, while the procedure is performed in a series of 2 to even 20 treatments.
Advantages of the procedure
- safe method if performed by an experienced specialist
- no recovery period
- completely non-invasive procedure
- year-round treatment
- LED phototherapy does not require the implementation of any special protocols before the procedure
- LED phototherapy does not require the implementation of any special protocols after the procedure; recommendations will directly relate to the problem the patient reports
- slight redness of the skin
- delicate edema
- slight burning / itching of the skin
Recommended combined treatments
- recommended by a specialist, depending on the problem the patient reports
Duration of the procedure
