Can LED Light Therapy really revive my skin?
01 Feb, 2016
Modern medical innovations have advanced so quickly in recent years that it can sometimes feel hard to keep up with the latest and greatest in skin science.
However, one breakthrough treatment that you should really get your mind around is LED light therapy. An incredible new way to support the appearance of healthy, youthful skin, light therapy is causing waves in the beauty world as a gentle, yet potent tool against the visible effects of ageing. We're shedding some light on the treatment to find out more, as well as how it could help you.
What have LED lights got to do with skincare?
We're glad you asked! Light-emitting diode (more commonly known as LED) technology is an incredible invention, with many applications, from eco-friendly lighting to skin therapy.
At its core, light therapy involves the use of concentrated, non-ultraviolet light on our skin to stimulate rejuvenation and healing.
For the best effect, LEDs combine both red and infrared light, the precise choice of wavelengths enabling the treatment to target the effects of ageing. The light stimulates deeper tissue, working to soften the appearance of fine lines, smoothing and evening out the tone of your skin.
The photomodulation process is safe, painless and non-invasive, turning to the skin's own natural cellular mechanisms to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin - vital in supporting plump, resilient skin. Light therapy can help to bring out your skin's inner radiance.
How does LED light therapy work?
Here at Claire Francoise, we're proud to use Omnilux's state-of-the-art technology. Originally developed in the UK, Omnilux systems are a product of extensive research, it has been medically proven to produce results and is now used around the world.
Omnilux offers two different light sources. The first, Omnilux Revive, activates target cells using the ideal wavelength and intensity to prompt rejuvenation and repair. With the heightened cellular activity, cells become more responsive, increasing blood flow and helping to detoxify tissue.
Omnilux Plus uses longer wavelengths to encourage healing, making it ideal for treating the appearance of scarring and damaged skin. Increased oxygenation sees circulation increased, with the flushing out of toxins resulting in tighter, more glowing skin.
With Omnilux light therapy, you can look forward to a relaxing and calming experience, without any heat, pain, side effects or downtime, making it perfect for anyone juggling a busy schedule. Furthermore, the nature of the treatment means is can be applied across larger areas such as the chest, not just the face.
