The ultimate goal in caring for your clients is to create skin that is healthy and beautiful. LED treatments can be instrumental in attaining this goal when they are incorporated as part of a regular skin care regimen. These treatments result in skin that is rejuvenated, even in tone and color, and richer in collagen—all without the side effects or downtime that can be associated with invasive procedures.

It is vital to make sure that your clients understand the type of results that can be achieved with LED therapy. Most importantly, be realistic about the fact that these effects can take time and may vary considerably from person to person. Just as you would not expect to go to the gym and see results after only one workout, your clients should not expect to see their wrinkles diminished after the first treatment.

The future seems limitless for LED therapy, as well as its effectiveness in treating a variety of issues—from acne and acne scarring to promoting hair regrowth. Keep abreast of news and media reports regarding studies being performed with LED devices, and be aware of FDA approvals for these units. One thing is for certain—your clients will hear about these advancements and come to you for your knowledge and expertise on the subject. By incorporating LED into your spa today, you’ll ensure your business’ future success and ultimate longevity.
