LED Light Therapy | Treatment | Aspire Training Clinic




LED (Light emitting diode) therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment using specific wavelengths of light to reduce inflammation, assist in healing, increase collagen and elastin and reduce acne-causing bacteria. LED sessions are often used to enhance other dermal procedures though may also be used as a stand-alone treatment for acne and rosacea.


Blue LED light reduces activity in the sebaceous glands, which are small oil-producing glands in the skin. This reduction in activity causes the glands to produce less oil, possibly improving acne symptoms. Blue light may also kill a type of bacteria that contributes to acne by causing inflammation. 


Red LED light may improve scarring and signs of aging, such as wrinkles. It may do this by acting on fibroblasts, which are skin cells that are responsible for collagen production. Collagen is a protein in the skin and other connective tissues. It plays a role in skin healing. The body produces less collagen as a person ages, which causes the skin to show signs of aging. Red light also reduces skin inflammation.

For acne and rosacea, optimal results are achieved with six to eight, bi-weekly sessions.

For general skin maintenance, optimal results are achieved with one, monthly session. Different wavelengths of light in LED lights, including blue and red, penetrate the skin at different depths. This penetration may trigger biological processes that help the skin rejuvenate and heal.
