As we age, as does our skin. The skin and face tend to show symptoms of aging faster than any other part of the body, for both men and women! Over the years, we expose our skin to environmental pollution, harmful weather, wind exposure, intense cold, overwhelming heat, and most notably, over-exposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays.
These elements take a nasty toll on the face and cause wrinkles, fine lines, discolorations, loss of facial volume, bumps, bruises and other blemishes. The underlying cause of most facial issues is the loss of vital compounds such as collagen and elastin. Collagen provides your skin its volume, as well as its smooth, supple texture and its glowing look. Elastin, is responsible for your facial resiliency, and the skin’s ability to stretch and come back to its original size and shape, without any long-term damage.
Without these two vital elements, the face tends to take on a number of blemishes, wrinkles, and fine lines.
What is LED Light Therapy?
One of the newest treatments we offer is our revolutionary LED Skin Therapy. By running LED light over damaged, or worn skin we are able to encourage cellular turnover and aid in the production of brand-new collagen and skin cells.
Aging creates enzymes that break down collagen, LED light energy can help inhibit these enzymes, leading to the production of fresh collagen and new skin cells. In addition, this loss of collagen and other important compounds causes the skin to lose its ability to heal itself. Therefore, the skin is far more prone to damage, and infections. This can cause issues such as:
- Bumps, and Blemishes
- Discolorations, and Hyperpigmentation.
- Sun & Age spots
The gentle LED light energy is concentrated and can penetrate well below the surface of the skin. Causes the skin to heal itself from the inside out!
The LED light energizes the skin causing it to rapidly reproduce and create new, fresh skin cells. While this occurs, it the older layers of skin are exfoliated and removed. Once this occurs, bumps, bruises, blemishes, acne, and even certain superficial scarring will disappear!
