LED LIGHT THERAPY
Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills, Hollywood, and Los Angeles.
LED light therapy is a popular regenerative skin treatment at the Beverly Hills medical practice of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer. This gentle, effective therapy is the perfect complement to many of the advanced cosmetic treatments offered by Dr. Emer due to its healing, energizing effects on the cells of the body.
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
Light emitting diode therapy, or LED light therapy, employs targeted, UV-free LED light energy to offer multiple benefits and address a wide range of skin issues. Dr. Emer provides LED light therapy in various wavelengths, or colors of light, to stimulate specific biological responses at the cellular level.
Dr. Emer customizes LED light therapy treatments to each patient’s unique goals. LED light therapy is most commonly performed to reduce inflammation and redness, energize and regenerate cells, build new proteins, and/or destroy acne bacteria.
When used both before and after laser, radiofrequency, ultrasound, microneedling, and injectable filler treatments, LED light therapy can increase circulation and speed up the healing process. In some cases, patients have healed 150 to 200 times faster than would have been possible without this innovative therapy.
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
Dr. Emer is an amazing dermatologist. I found him when I first moved to LA 2.5 years ago and have been seeing him regularly ever since. I always has great recommendations and makes my skin look amazing! I completely trust him. His skin also always looks amazing and I think it’s important for a skin doctor to look the part himself. He has also provided me with a great referral for another doctor who was also excellent!

What to Expect After LED Light Therapy
There is no downtime or recovery after LED light therapy. Some patients notice improvements in skin tone, texture, and/or clarity after just one treatment.
A series of weekly LED light therapy sessions is typically recommended for the most dramatic results. Once you have achieved your desired outcome, regular maintenance sessions will be needed to combat new bacteria growth, collagen loss, and the natural aging process.
