skin treatment Light Therapy
The secret is out and it’s finally made it to Winnipeg! Phototherapy, also known as LED Light Therapy, is used and trusted by the likes of NASA and in the medical field to fast track wound healing, treat and prevent pain and discomfort associated with cancer treatments, bone-marrow transplants, joint pain, etc.
This innovative technology immerses your skin in light and helps to achieve a healthy and glowing complexion in just one sitting. The light therapy facial mask is based on various wavelengths of the light spectrum ranging from red and purple to blue. These specific light waves have different effects on your skin. They permeate the extracellular matrix of the connective tissue where they reduce the depletion of elastin and increase the production of collagen. They also help increase the supply of oxygen to the cell, thus improving metabolism and blood circulation. The skin is tightened, pores are reduced and the general skin appearance improved. Even the healing of scar tissue is accelerated due to the stimulation of regenerative processes.
Phototherapy has made a big impact within the aesthetics industry due to its healing effects on many skin problems such as acne, wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, enlarged pores, hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, and much more! Big names in Hollywood such as Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, and Kourtney Kardashian are big fans of Phototherapy as amazing results can be seen in as little as three treatments!
Besides anti-aging and hyper-pigmentation, blue light fights the bacteria that causes acne making it one of the most effective aesthetic treatments for this widely depressing skin problem – and it’s entirely pain-free!
Here’s what we love about the Phototherapy Facial:
- The mask does not feel suffocating – in fact, it’s quite comfortable
- The LEDs provide a warm rejuvenating sensation to the skin
- The treatment is non-invasive, pain-free and safe for all skin types. *Note that if you have photosensitivity, you should not use this mask
- No harmful microwaves, UVA, UVB or lasers!
- The facial is relaxing and you feel like taking a nap during the process
- No “downtime” required for inflammation to subside, unlike in the case of chemical peels and other abrasive treatments
- Gives skin a temporary lift right after use and makes it look plumper and well-hydrated
- Treatments are very affordable compared to other facial/skin treatments!
The facial mask comes with 3 different light settings, targeting a wide range of skin problems, including aging signs. Settings include wrinkle reducer, acne buster, skin balancer, red away, radiant skin, skin soother, cell rejuvenater, skin booster using infrared and pain-blocker. You can also try a quick fix with red, purple and blue lights combined for a 30 minute treatment to give you that red carpet glow for when you have a special event to attend!
You don’t have to wait till your late 30s to start an anti-aging regimen. Experts suggest starting as early as your 20s as collagen production becomes dormant after the age of 25. The LED facial is a revolutionary new skin treatment process, backed by decades of research that promises to fade and prevent signs of aging, boost collagen fiber production, firm tired and aging skin and annihilate acne, dullness and discolourations. After trying it a few times on ourselves here at LUX, we definitely recommend making this treatment a staple in your skincare regimen.
