Light Therapy

Light therapy is included in all Skin Treatments and also in all microneedling treatments, to boost results. The patented programs of Red, Infrared & Blue Light therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort.

The innovative technology used at the clinic helps to counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne and acne scarring. Phototherapy provides noticeable results, often in a couple of treatments.

What To Expect:

Light therapy treatments are safe, simple and easy. Its so simple and fast that you can have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work.

After The Treatment:

Each individual responds differently; some notice changes much more quickly than others. The following principles are generalities; specific results will vary from client to client based on the client needs and lifestyle. The protocols have been designed to address the most common requested treatments, such as aging, preventative, scars, pigmentation, flaccid skin and even acne!

A series of light therapy treatments will give the desired skin transformation that will last for months. For maximum results, a series of 8-12 weekly treatments along with a specific homecare program is recommended. A “maintenance” treatment every 4-6 weeks is also recommended depending on condition of the skin, lifestyle and homecare.

Treatment Options

Acne

Designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce the P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. This acne treatment aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring.

 

Age Management

Designed to re-hydrate the face, and increase collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement erasing years from the face.

 

Discomfort

Specifically designed to address inflammation associated with trauma and/or an allergic reaction that causes discomfort with a focus on clients who experience persistent problems such as joint and muscle discomfort. It is also used within 72 hours of any traumatic event including post-surgical interventions to reduce scarring and encourage normal tissue formation.

Pigmentation

Intended to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up, and chemical reactions from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This process normalizes the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin, the thickness of the skin and the age of the client.

Preventative Care

Designed to increase blood circulation and bring more nutrients to the skins surface which helps to keep the skin from breaking down. It also helps to normalize dry or oily skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.

Scars

Uses powerful Infrared and red light to stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue. Clients usually notice softening of scar tissue. They also notice flattening and widening of the scar. This is a normal sequence in scar reduction. With several more sessions the flat, wide scar will become thinner and remain flat. Some scars may appear to be resistant to this program (hypertrophic and/or keloid). If this is the case, a customized treatment protocol and/or additional treatment options may need to be considered.
