Should LED Light Therapy Be Part Of Your Skincare Routine?

Having beautiful, clear skin not only makes you healthier: it's important for your self-esteem, too! Dealing with acne or other skin conditions can be frustrating, and with all the new treatments available, you may feel overwhelmed trying to find the best solution to clearing up your skin. Brazilian Beauty is proud to offer our clients LED light therapy in Australia, an effective way to enhance your skincare routine.

What is LED Light Therapy?

LED light therapy uses different wavelengths of light to create molecules that maximize the production of essential substances naturally found in the skin, such as elastin and collagen. This treatment can be used for a variety of skin conditions. It was so effective in repairing the skin that it was even used by Navy SEALS to help wounds heal faster! Many skin professionals are using this non-invasive treatment to treat their patients due to it having virtually no safety concerns. Many anti-aging treatments, such as dermabrasion and chemical peels, can cause painful burns. Some types of light therapy use ultraviolet rays, which can be harmful and cause irreversible damage to your skin. The therapy does not use UV rays whatsoever, so it's completely safe for long term use. Many who underwent this therapy experience no side effects at all, but there is the possibility of inflammation and rashes. It uses two types of light for treating your skin: red light and blue light. Red light treats the outer layer of your skin, which smooths it out and helps improve circulation. Blue light targets the oil glands beneath your hair follicles, the main culprit for acne breakouts. These two lights can also be used together for a more enhanced, therapeutic effect.

What Does LED Light Therapy Do for Your Skin?

It has proven to be successful in treating a wide variety of skin conditions. Because of the way it naturally stimulates the skin, this treatment is one of the best solutions for anti-aging, gently clearing away fine lines and wrinkles. It also kills bacteria under the skin, which will eliminate pimples, nodules, and cysts. A few treatments will greatly reduce acne or age spots. This treatment is also particularly effective with treating rosacea, a painful condition that leads to small blood vessels being visible on the face. This condition can make you feel self-conscious and may be difficult to treat, but it can yield incredible results. Brazilian Beauty uses a comfortable LED light therapy mask to administer the light onto your skin.

Which Types of Skin Should Try Light Therapy?

It is safe to try on any skin, so it's recommended for everyone! Adding it to your normal skincare routine can enhance your skin, even more, brightening your complexion and warding off small pimples. If you have a skin condition or are looking to make your skin look younger, you may be the best candidate. You should not undergo this skin treatment if you're experiencing skin rashes or are prescribed Accutane for acne.

How Often Should You Have LED Light Therapy?

Brazilian beauty recommends getting LED light therapy once a week for up to ten weeks. After that, you will only need to perform the therapy once every few months. These sessions will take around 20-30 minutes. You should always keep your skin as hydrated as possible between appointments to ensure the best results.
