The beauty industry continues to come up with new and improved innovative skin rejuvenation techniques to target a myriad of skin concerns such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone, texture, and more.
Some of the more popular skin treatments include Dermapen Skin Needling, a nifty device which uses microscopic needles to stimulate collagen production, skin peels – using active ingredients to target a range of skin issues, RF Skin Tightening – which stands for Radio Frequency, dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Some people elect to go one step further and take a leap of faith by undergoing surgical facelifts, but cosmetic surgery definitely isn’t for everyone.
So, what choice do we have if we want an affordable, chemical-free, non-surgical and totally non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment with good results and no down-time?
A great option for people looking for quick and effective ways to improve their skin texture, boost collagen production or reduce breakouts in acne prone skin, is an LED Light Treatment, available at Clear Skincare Clinics right around the country.
LED stands for light-emitting diodes. It is a safe and gentle treatment with multiple healing benefits for the skin. LEDs do not contain harmful ultraviolet rays, so they will not damage or burn your skin. Conversely, LEDs work at a cellular level to stimulate the natural healing mechanisms within the skin, thereby providing visible improvements to a range of issues.
This completely painless process involves lying beneath a red or blue light – depending on your skin’s needs - for approximately 10 - 20 minutes. For busy mums this equates to 20 minutes of peaceful shut-eye while your skin receives all the benefits of the healing light-emitting diodes – yes please
So what’s actually happening as you relax beneath the LED lights? The red LED is encouraging increased collagen production while gently minimising fine lines and wrinkles, helping to treat sun damage, reduce redness and inflammation, and improve circulation. The blue light is working to kill the bacteria that causes acne and reduce the associated inflammation in acne prone skin. Your therapist will determine which light you need depending on your skin concerns.
One of the best things about LED compared to other more invasive treatments is that there is no recovery required. In fact you will leave the clinic with glowing healthy looking skin, so you can carry on with your day with confidence and free of post treatment blotchiness. Of course, all the good stuff is happening below the surface, and with repeated treatments skin becomes progressively smoother and clearer with improved texture, and a more even skin tone.
LED treatments are perfect for busy mums who may struggle to find the recovery time some other skin rejuvenating procedures require, often 3-7 days or more depending on the treatment. Many more invasive procedures can cause initial redness with mild bruising or swelling, and any form of surgery, including cosmetic, has inherent risks and significant downtime.
Clear Skincare Clinics recommend a course of ten weekly LED treatments to gain the best results. Top-ups once a month or so after that will help to prolong the results and maintain the increased levels of collagen production for healthier, younger-looking skin.
