People’s desire to have blemish-free, younger-looking skin has paved the way for innumerable beauty products and treatments. Currently, when it comes to facial treatments, the latest craze is LED facial therapy.
What Is LED Facial Therapy?
LED facial therapy, also referred to as LED light facial or LED facial, is a treatment which utilises LED lights to rejuvenate the skin as well as to treat problems like acne. LEDs emit lightwaves of varying colours and lengths. Studies reveal that each colour does different things to the skin.
Red light is known to stimulate the production of collagen and promote blood circulation. It also tightens the skin, shrinks pores and most importantly, speeds up healing. These cell regenerating properties are the reasons why red light is used for anti-ageing treatments. Meanwhile, blue light is said to kill acne-causing bacteria; it is also recommended for congested skin. Pink light is for accelerating the recovery of the skin.
So how is this facial done? The treatment is done using handheld devices or hands-free ones like the LED facial mask, which is currently very popular amongst celebrities. LED facials may be done as a standalone treatment or performed in conjunction with another treatment. For example, following an extraction, LED facial therapy may be recommended to reduce inflammation and enable the skin to heal quickly. The sessions usually take 20 to 30 minutes; however, if other treatments are done, the process may last longer.
What Are The Benefits Of LED Facials?
LED facial therapy is very effective in combating the signs of ageing. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Moreover, it tightens and brightens the skin resulting in a younger-looking and radiant face. This treatment also does well in improving uneven skin tone and minimising or eliminating acne problems.
However, these results aren’t achieved overnight. Also, while your skin may feel tighter after the first session, know that this is just temporary. For optimal results, several sessions, at least six to eight, are necessary. As per experts, the effects are usually seen after the fifth session.
It has no side effects. Unlike other treatments, LED facials do not cause reddening of the face. Plus, the skin doesn’t become sensitive to the sun after the session.
LED facial therapy is non-invasive and painless. You don’t have to worry about going under the knife or being injected with chemicals. It is also clinically proven to be safe. While the LED mask may look scary, it’s actually very relaxing. It may just feel a little warm during the session, but it’s something manageable. However, you must know that while this treatment may look simple, it still cannot be administered by just anyone. For your safety, ensure that the person who’s going to do your treatment is professionally trained on LED therapy.
This facial treatment is also not time-consuming. As mentioned earlier, the therapy can be completed in 20 to 30 minutes. Hence, you don’t have to skip work or make drastic changes in your daily activities just to get this treatment. In fact, you can just simply squeeze it in your schedule, like during your lunch break.
With its numerous benefits and the countless testimonials about its efficacy, LED facial therapy is definitely something you should try.
