Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED can also be done on all skin types, regardless of ethnicity. It remains cool and comfortable for the client because it uses spectral light instead of heat to activate the skin’s own biochemical healing processes. The photobiological effect is safe and creates no risk of burning the tissue. See LED Skin Benefits for more ways it helps the skin.
The number of treatments needed varies with different skin types and conditions. As with any skin care treatment, maintenance is highly recommended to ensure lasting results. On average, a maintenance treatment is suggested every four to six weeks. Smoother, more hydrated skin with a radiant sheen can be seen after the first treatment, and the process is safe and effective for all skin types, ethnicities and age groups. These treatments have no undesirable side effects and no downtime for clients. The treatments are gentle, safe and noninvasive, with no UV or IR light.
