LED light therapy is a skin treatment with many benefits. Depending on the color of light selected, light therapy devices and treatments can target signs of aging and help prevent acne. Light therapy uses low-energy infrared light to penetrate deep into the skin. This type of light is non-damaging to the skin and helps skin cells regenerate.
LED light therapy benefits:
- Reduces periorbital wrinkles
- Stimulates production of skin collagen and elastin
- Reduces inflammatory acne
- Improves the appearance of age spots, sun spots and dark circles
- Improves the appearance of stretch marks
- Improves skin tone and clarity
- Reduces redness and inflammation e.g redness associated with rosacea, post-laser/IPL treatment or after Botox or Filler treatment
- Promotes the growth of fuller, thicker, stronger hair

Light or deeper exfoliation, Laser and micro-injuries with LED Light Therapy, are an excellent combination to enhance results.
Here at Velvet Effect Lasers, we commonly use LED light therapy after (post) our Skin Rejuvenation treatments.
Treatments performed in combination, will require less weekly visits compared to stand alone light therapy.
