LED Phototherapy
– LED Light Therapy Melbourne

Looking for a treatment that effectively rejuvenates and heals the skin without using painful or invasive techniques? LED phototherapy uses advanced light technology to gently activate skin cells and produce rejuvenated, healing effects for the skin. It is the perfect treatment for individuals needing accelerated skin healing post-surgery or who want fresher smoother skin

LED phototherapy (light therapy) uses multiple light wavelengths to revitalise the skin. It is an effective, painless, non-invasive cosmetic procedure requiring no recovery time. Light therapy can be used for skin restoration, wound healing, and acne and is suitable for sensitive skin or rosacea clients.

Our skin changes as we age, many of which cannot be treated solely with topical products. Our cell turnover decreases with time, along with collagen and hyaluronic acid production, contributing to the gradual decline in skin firmness and flexibility, causing a duller, more aged appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation concerns, sagging, volume loss, and blemishes such as age spots can develop, which become emphasised if patients do not take proper care of their skin.

LED phototherapy is recommended as a stand-alone treatment or as an add-on to other skin services. Typically a course of treatments is recommended for best results. ADD MORE

How it works

LED phototherapy is a versatile treatment that uses light to activate skin cells, producing rejuvenating and healing effects on the skin. The light also activates and stimulates ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a molecule in the skin which promotes energy and enhances the skin’s cellular metabolism for complete cellular renewal, leaving your complexion smooth and clear. The treatment enhances the body’s natural recovery responses to remedy the signs of ageing and treats a wide range of common skin conditions and concerns.

LED phototherapy works by sending a band of low-intensity light energy into the skin. The treatment uses three wavelengths of light clinically proven to alter cellular function, assist tissue healing, reduce inflammation, promote skin rejuvenation, and control acne breakouts by destroying bacteria. Each lightwave frequency is designed to treat a diverse range of skin concerns, meaning LED phototherapy can be customised to each patient’s specific needs.

Blue 415 nm: Effective in treating and managing inflammatory and non-inflammatory lesions in mild to moderate acne.

Red 633 nm & Near Infra-red 830 nm: Utilised in treating wounds, burns, pre/post-surgery, and laser treatment to hasten the healing process and reduce scarring.

Benefits of LED light therapy

LED phototherapy is used to treat a multitude of common skin problems depending on the individual. The treatment is non-invasive, painless, and can be used on any skin type. It does not use ultraviolet (UV) light, which means it is unlikely to cause skin damage. LED light therapy can help you achieve smoother and fresher-looking skin by stimulating your skin’s natural healing mechanisms. The treatment can perform a variety of purposes, including:

Reduce Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Reduce Pigmentation

Improve Skin Laxity

Reduce Acne Scars

Other benefits include:

  • Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin
  • Reducing the prevalence of active acne
  • Accelerating skin healing post-surgery
  • Reducing pigmentations
  • Increasing cell function and turnover rate
  • Minimising scarring and inflammation
  • Rejuvenating wrinkled and ageing skin
  • Treating redness, dryness, and inflammation

Ideal candidates for LED phototherapy

LED phototherapy is suitable for people with all skin types. If you are looking to reduce the appearance of acne, mild scarring, pigmentation, or skin injuries, you might be an ideal candidate. The treatment may also be suitable for anyone seeking a non-invasive treatment to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin or to give the skin a revitalising boost.

Your specific skin concerns and any history of medical conditions or complications will be discussed before the treatment to determine your suitability. This will also help establish ideal outcomes and avoid any potential complications to ensure the best result.

What to expect

Light therapy treatments are customised for your specific skin requirements and goals. Once your ideal treatment has been established and ready to proceed, your skin will be cleansed and prepped for treatment. The correct wavelength will be selected, and the light will be applied to stimulate the skin cells, encourage dermal blood flow, and activate underlying functions in the skin.

A warm sensation accompanies the application of light on the skin, which is usually very tolerable and can even feel relaxing. The light treatment will be carried out with extreme care and precision according to your specific skin concerns. As each treatment plan differs depending on the patient, the time required for the procedure can vary. It is usually a quick process, taking 10-20 minutes to complete.

It is common for patients to undergo multiple treatments. The exact number will depend on the issues being addressed. Generally, weekly sessions will deliver the best results.

Things to consider

There is no minimum downtime following the procedure. Patients can usually return to their normal daily activities straight away. However, you may experience some aftereffects, such as skin warmth and a flushed appearance. These symptoms will soon fade, revealing brighter and healthier-looking skin.

Side effects are minimal and rare. The penetrating LED lights are clinically proven to benefit the skin, stimulating the body’s natural repair mechanisms and encouraging collagen production.

Patients will likely experience softer skin following the procedure due to increased blood flow. Skin quality will gradually improve over the next few months, adopting a more flexible and youthful appearance due to increased collagen and elastin.

LED Light Therapy aftercare

To ensure you experience the best possible outcomes from your LED phototherapy treatments, you will be given general aftercare instructions that include:

  • Your dermal clinician will advise you on the compatibility of your existing skincare products and recommend any products that may help maintain your results and avoid contraindications.
  • Use high SPF sunscreen every day.
  • Makeup can be applied immediately after your LED light therapy treatment, but we recommend patients use mineral-based or non-comedogenic formulations to allow the skin to breathe.
  • Drink plenty of water and maintain your hydration levels to assist the lymphatic system in eliminating toxins.
  • Allow the skin to heal naturally, and avoid exfoliating or picking at the skin during this time, as this can increase the risk of scarring and infection.

Your particular aftercare instructions may vary depending on whether other skin treatments are conducted in conjunction with your LED phototherapy.

Risks & Complications

Since LED phototherapy does not emit harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, it is considered a safer type of light therapy that will not cause long-term damage to the skin. Additionally, the procedure is non-invasive and poses very minimal risks. However, three are still complications associated with LED phototherapy that patients must be aware of before conducting such a treatment.

If patients are currently taking acne medications, they must be aware that this is a potent medication derived from vitamin A that can make your skin more sensitive to light and may cause scarring in some cases. Therefore, patients taking any of these medications or currently using products on their skin that cause light sensitivity will need to avoid LED light therapy or discontinue using these products for the time being.

Patients with an active rash may also need to consider avoiding this treatment. If patients have psoriasis, it is essential to discuss it with their clinician during the consultation to assess their suitability. Red light therapy may be able to help, but a personalised treatment plan in combination with other prescribed treatments may be required.

Side effects from LED phototherapy are rare, but they may still occur, and patients should contact our clinic immediately if they experience any of the following:

  • Increased inflammation
  • Rash
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Tenderness
  • Hives

How to choose the best LED Light Therapy clinic in Melbourne

The most notable benefits of LED Phototherapy treatments come from professional practitioners. Only a dermatologist or qualified aesthetician can be appropriately trained to carry out LED light therapy, such as our highly-trained team at Flawless Rejuvenation. Patients should always verify a clinician’s qualifications and experience before any treatment is conducted.

LED Phototherapy FAQs

Is LED light therapy safe?

LED Phototherapy is exceptionally safe for the skin; it functions without rupturing the skin and does not transfer extreme heat that could result in burns, preventing patients from experiencing any physical harm. Since it is also free of UV radiation, there is no chance of tanning, sunburn, or skin cancer. Rashes, hives, and swelling are uncommon adverse reactions. We may recommend patients avoid LED light therapy if they suffer migraines or seizures, as the flashing diodes may exacerbate those conditions.

How soon will I see LED phototherapy results?

Your skin may appear more luminous immediately following your treatment, but you will need more than one session to achieve the best possible results. LED treatments are most useful for patients when conducted in a series. Usually, one to two sessions a week and a total of eight treatments are advised. Continuous results over time can produce significant improvements in your skin.

How long will my results last?

Assuming you receive the entire course of LED light therapy treatments, your results may last six months to a year after finishing all treatment sessions. However, you will need to repeat your course of treatment to retain our results after that time. To extend your results, avoid the sun when possible and wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 when outside.
