Let’s talk LED! 

Light Therapy is taking the esthetics world by storm by offering a wide range of skin benefits that are non-invasive, painless and require no recovery time! You can get results using LED with acne, scarring, fine lines, muscle pain, increased healing and more!

WHAT IS LED?

It is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to the skin to improve cellular health. In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, our skin can trigger a similar natural effect from these LED wavelengths.

BENEFITS:

The absorbed energy from LED significantly improves cellular performance. This means it can accelerate skin repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease redness and inflammation, and improve the overall texture and clarity of the skin! It can also work deeper in the skin by easing muscle or joint pain! When used correctly, the results and benefits from LED are undeniable!

NOT ALL LED IS THE SAME!

At Spiral we carefully selected the LED technology we utilize in treatments, and recommend for at-home usage! We use Celluma exclusively because it is the only FDA cleared and approved device to offer you therapeutic healing benefits. Not only is the device important, but how it’s used is even more important to ensure you’re getting the full benefits from your LED device!

USAGE:

Having a fresh face, within close distance to the LED is key! To receive the full benefits, the wavelengths need to be able to speak to the cells. For that to happen, the device needs to be within 1 inch of your face and the skin needs to be completely clean. Anything placed on the skin has the potential to act as a barrier to light energy absorption. Especially if it is oily or contains anything that could reflect light. This is why we make sure that LED is administered correctly to give you the best results!

Specific sessions needed can vary depending on desired results! 

  • For aging skin: we typically recommend two, 30 minute sessions a week for 5 weeks. 
  • For acneic skin: we recommend at least one, 30 minute, session a week for 4-8 weeks. 
  • For maintenance: we recommend 10-30 minutes once or twice a month at minimum in conjunction with your other skin care services.

We love incorporating at least 10 minutes of LED into almost all of our skin treatments! 10 minutes will not only calm the skin and reduce redness, but also eliminate bacteria to prevent post-treatment breakouts. For full LED benefits, a 20 minute LED add-on is our recommendation to be able to offer you the best results in-session.

Can LED be an investment?

Yes, but all corrective treatments are. The goal is to invest your time and money wisely so you make sure you’re getting your desired results!
