LED Red is a revolutionary medical breakthrough to aid in gentle skin renewal, skin healing and pore reduction. This treatment is now available at SW1 Clinic.
LED Red is a 633nm red light therapy and is a form of photomodulation treatment. Photomodulation is a non-ablative, non-thermal therapy that effectively reduces the signs of photodamage and skin aging including shrinking pore size. Patients report smoother, brighter skin and decreased pore size after having undergone a few treatments. Patients also notice a more even skin tone, especially on the neck and chest.
What is LED Photomodulation?
This refers to the interaction of special lights delivered through Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) with the skin cells, and this light works by activating the formation of new collagen on one hand and reducing the breakdown of existing collagen in the skin on the other hand.
How does LED Red work?
This treatment is a very gentle and non-invasive method that works to help you produce healthy skin. The emitted light is “coded” to promote healthy skin cell changes in the forms of improved skin healing, increased collagen synthesis and oil reduction. Treatments have zero pain and zero downtime. This treatment can be used on all skin colors and patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.
How many LED Red treatments are required?
LED Red treatments are normally distributed over several weeks or months. The number of treatments vary depending on skin type; areas treated and associated skin conditions. Generally the more treatments are done, the better and more obvious the results. Whilst we can’t stop the aging process, we can embark on maintenance treatments to keep it in check.
Can we combine LED Red with other laser Treatments?
LED Red treatments are best combined with other non-invasive treatments such as IPL treatments as well as Botox and cosmetic fillers. It can also be combined with I-Clear for effective treatment of acne, and with the popular Pearl Eclat or Plasma C Boost to speed up skin healing.
How will I feel after a series of treatments with this LED Red light?
LED Red delivers a natural method of light-only skin rejuvenation and works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of aging. Subjects in trials have reported an overall lifting and hydrating effect, an overall improvement in skin tone and texture, an evening-out of pigmentation, a smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles as well as a general feeling of well-being and relaxation.
How can I get the LED Red treatments?
LED Red treatments can be offered as individual sessions or as packages of 8 sessions to help you achieve the best results. LED Red is also incorporated in our Deep Red facials for an effective skin rejuvenating facial treatment. LED Red is also incorporated in our clinical Clarity Program which gives you an enhanced and prolonged skin clearing and healing benefit for acne-prone and sensitive skins.
