- Red (650nm) – Will increase Collagen and Elastin production and will aid in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Red light also has an anti inflammatory affect that can be used after a chemical peel.
- Blue (462nm) – Creates an anti bacterial affect that is perfect for directly targeting acne. Very beneficial when the treatment of scar tissue is the aim.
- Green (527nm) – A soothing affect that will also aid the hydration of the skin
- Purple (600nm) – Help’s with the elimination of harmful toxins from the body.
- Orange (610nm) – Is for balancing and recomposing the skin tissue.
- Turquoise (470nm) – Helps with relaxation.
- Yellow (590nm) – This will improve the lymphatic drainage system
Optional to have an infused custom blended anti-oxidants and anti-aging product mask and products of vitamin C
Does it hurt?
No, it does not. Most clients tolerate the treatment very well and most finding it very relaxing. The sensation experienced is slightly scratchy and warming but this disappears very quickly once the treatment is finished. Although a difference can be seen after only one treatment, a course of treatments is recommended to achieve deeper longer lasting results. The average complete cell turnover is four to five weeks and it will be at the end of this time that the full results can be seen. Whilst the light therapy is active, goggles may need to be worn. Treatment consists of thermotherapy, microdermabrasion, light therapy, Customised Mask ending with Cryotherapy to close the pores.
How often do I need a treatment?
