What are LEDs and how are they used by LED LIGHTWAVE™ ?
LEDs - Light Emitting Diodes - provide infrared (invisible to the eye) and visible red light that in narrow wavelengths and programmed exposure is beneficial to the cells of human tissue, similarly how sunlight benefits the cells of plants enabling them to process and utilize food and air into usable energy. Professional LED systems are programmed to change wavelength/frequency and patterns of length to offer the most beneficial treatment according to an individual's needs and desired effects. Each unit is pre-programmed to provide the patient/client with a session specifically structured to address the individual’s requirements and target area. LED technology has long been promoted as an aide in wound treatment; the reduction in and appearance of wrinkles, scars and pain management. Through its use of deep-penetrating warmth and effect on cell metabolism, LEDs have been the subject of research by NASA for utilization in space, medical college research studies, and even numerous physical fitness training facilities. Most current medical responses to skin aging currently involve invasive, painful, and often very expensive correction treatment and approaches. LED LIGHTWAVE™ offers a non-invasive approach that can be used regularly to improve the appearance of problem areas that are otherwise corrected only by surgery and laser-treatments.
LED select and programmed wavelengths offers effective treatment for anti-aging skin care, facial wrinkles, acne, pain body appearance enhancements, scar reduction, and more. Blue and Red light can both be used to activate PDT (photodynamic therapy). LED LIGHTWAVE™ treatment is widely considered a safer, more-effective and affordable alternative to laser treatment.
Click one of the following questions to find out the answer.
What is LED LIGHTWAVE™ therapy?
LED LIGHTWAVE™ therapy is the best of LED light therapy and offers the most sophisticated and cutting-edge application and equipment in the industry.
LED LIGHTWAVE™ therapy utilizes Red light therapy, Infrared light therapy and Blue light therapy for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, wrinkles, acne scars and more.
LED LIGHTWAVE™ utilizes professional clinical-strength LED therapy and devices.
What does LED LIGHTWAVE™ Rejuvenation do?
LED LIGHTWAVE™ stimulates collagen and elastin production and tissue repair which can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging and damage to skin and other bodily tissues. It does this by enacting cutting-edge protocols that activate the cellular renewal process, while restoring and protecting the surface of the skin. The result is a significant and yet completely natural looking cosmetic enhancement. The effectiveness of using red and infrared light therapy to stimulate rejuvenation in damaged tissues has been documented in more than 2,500 research papers, and approximately 100 double-blind studies. LED LIGHTWAVE™ is the first light therapy that provides a complete and total, inside and outside, approach to skin; addressing skin care needs both inside the body on a cellular level and topically on the outside surface of the skin.
Are LED LIGHTWAVE™ treatments safe?
LED LIGHTWAVE™ offers advanced cosmetic rejuvenation utilizing Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology - which has been determined by the FDA to be of non-significant risk and, ABI Dermaceuticals Power Pure technology - which allows clients to experience the most effective formulations available. LED LIGHTWAVE™ treatments are completely non-invasive and do not produce any thermal damage or pain. Treatment times vary in duration depending on the needs of the individual client. However, treatments are generally perceived as pleasant and relaxing.
What is LED Light therapy and how does it work?
LED light therapy is the process of converting light energy into cellular energy for natural, non-invasive skin rejuvenation. Through a combination of Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared light therapy, in programmed combinations, the select wavelengths work for anti-aging therapy, wrinkle treatments, scar treatments, acne treatments and more. The LEDs will also activate photodynamic therapy, or phototherapy.
How is Infrared Light therapy used?
Infrared light therapy treatment is used in conjunction with Red light therapy and Blue light therapy for a wide range of skin rejuvenation purposes including facial rejuvenation, facial wrinkle treatments, acne treatments, acne scar treatments as well as pain reduction.
How is Blue Light therapy used?
Blue light therapy is used in conjunction with Red light therapy for adolescent and adult acne and acne scar treatments. For acne treatments of mild to severe acne and acne scars, to skin care for acne, LED Lightwave can help. Blue light treatment is a natural, effective skin rejuvenation technique and can be used to activate PDT, or photodynamic therapy.
What is PDT, or photodynamic therapy, and how is it used?
PDT, or photodynamic therapy (photodynamic rejuvenation), is a photo-sensitive topical agent applied to the skin and activated by a light source promoting skin rejuvenation for acne treatments, acne scar treatments, anti aging treatments, rosacea treatments and more. This can be accomplished through the use of either Blue light therapy or Red light therapy.
What can I expect during an LED LIGHTWAVE™ appointment?
During your initial LED LIGHTWAVE™ appointment, a knowledgeable LED LIGHTWAVE™ trained technician will take “before” pictures, conduct an interview and complete a physical evaluation of your skin to get a clear picture of your treatment priorities and goals. Your technician will then choose the appropriate LED LIGHTWAVE™ protocol(s) to best address your objectives and areas of concern.
What is the most effective non-prescription acne treatment available?
Because acne treatment can be tricky, many people with acne problems are turning to non-prescription LED light therapy for skin treatment. A combination protocol of Blue light and Red light therapy is the most sophisticated rejuvenation and non-invasive technology available today to treat acne skin conditions. Best of all, it’s natural, pain-free and affordable.
Can LED LIGHTWAVE™ help Anti-Aging?
LED LIGHTWAVE™ aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement erasing years from the face. This system is designed to re-hydrate your face and increase collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. 10 treatments are recommended. Maintenance once a month or as needed can prolong a youthful appearance.
How is LED light therapy different from laser treatment?
LED Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared lights are skin rejuvenation treatments that use non-invasive, non-ablative techniques for anti-aging skin care, facial wrinkles, acne treatment, body improvements and more. LED is a safer, more-effective and affordable alternative to laser treatment. Blue and Red light can also both be used to activate photodynamic therapy (PDT).
