Right for you?
Am I a Good Candidate for LED Light Therapy?
Patients in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood seeking a safe, non-invasive treatment for acne, inflamed skin, and/or age-related wrinkles and fine lines are often great candidates for LED light therapy with Dr. Emer. Dr. Emer can safely perform LED light therapy on all skin tones and on healthy adults of all ages.
While LED light therapy is an excellent treatment option for most patients, a consultation with a skin rejuvenation expert like Dr. Emer is necessary to determine your candidacy. Patients with active flare-ups of certain skin conditions may be better candidates for alternative interventions.
It is also important that you advise Dr. Emer of any medications that you take to ensure that you can safely undergo LED light therapy. Individuals on certain medications such as Accutane for acne or topical treatments that cause light sensitivity should not use LED light therapy.
As with any cosmetic treatment, it is important that candidates are of sound mind and body. Candidates must also have realistic expectations for their results.
What Is Red LED Therapy?
Red light, or infrared light, can be delivered to treat skin conditions that affect the outer layer of skin. Dr. Emer employs red LED light to repair damaged skin cells and revitalize the aging complexion for a more radiant appearance. Since red light easily penetrates the pores, it can be an effective method of:
- Improving blood circulation
- Assisting in lymphatic drainage
- Reducing melasma and psoriasis
- Boosting absorption of nutrients
- Stimulating the regrowth of collagen and elastin, which are two vital proteins responsible for skin suppleness and youthfulness
What Is Blue LED Therapy?
Blue LED light therapy can significantly improve acne because it affects the oil glands located under the hair follicles. It can also destroy the bacteria that causes breakouts.
The oil glands, or sebaceous glands, are designed to prevent the skin and hair from becoming too dry. However, some patients have overactive oil glands which can make them prone to acne. Blue LED therapy, which can decrease sebaceous gland activity, can be an effective intervention for this common skin condition.
Benefits of LED Light Therapy
Whether LED light therapy involves red light, blue light, or a combination of these wavelengths, patients can experience many positive effects. Benefits of LED light therapy can include:
- Refreshing and invigorating treatment
- Combats several different skin conditions at the same time
- Personalized for your comfort level
- Helps reverse the signs of aging
- Corrects facial scarring
- Exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells
- Removes debris, makeup, oil, and dirt
- Fights melasma and skin discoloration
- No known long term side effects
