The Science Behind an LED Light Facial

Have you checked out the latest craze in beauty? Thanks to celebrities like Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba, LED Light Therapy has picked up momentum in the beauty community. If you’ve seen the crazy “white mask” pictures on Instagram, then you probably have a few questions about the process and what LED light can do for your skin…

Will I experience any discomfort?

No, the session only takes 20-minutes and is completely non-invasive. Unlike UV light, you will not experience any uncomfortable heat given off from the mask. We do however, recommend that you relax during the session with your eyes closed, as the light can be a bit bright as you adjust.

 Will an LED Facial give me a tan? 

No, unlike UV tanning beds, LED light stimulates your skin in a healthy way.

How long does it take to notice results?

LED treatments produce a cumulative effect. Routine facials paired with the LED add-on will build beautiful results over time, but you will notice a subtle improvement in your skin’s appearance after one visit. If you suffer from acne or redness, you will love the immediate difference in the calming of inflammation.

Finding your Light:

Your Esthetician will work with you to decide what color light is best suited to your skin type.

Green light- reduces redness and calms inflammation

Blue light- enhances collagen production

White- calming for sensitive skin
