LED Light Therapy FAQs
How much does it cost?
At La Belle Vie we charge $25 per treatment when LED Light Therapy is added to another skin care service such as a facial. It’s a great addition to one of our facials such as the Diamond Glow or Dermaplaning. Our master aestheticians may recommend a longer session depending on your skin condition. We recommend at least ten sessions to begin seeing best results, so your total cost will need to be considered as you consider treatment.
Devices that are designed for use at home can cost anywhere from $50-$250, but this may be more cost-effective in the long run, as you have the technology at your fingertips, and you can use whenever you wish. Results may not be as dramatic with home devices, however, and you may end up paying for a device that does not effectively treat your skin condition.
How does the LED treatment work?
The U.S. Navy Seals began using this technology in the 90s to treat various skin ailments and wounds and to speed up the healing process. Since then, its application has been researched for use in aesthetically improving the condition of the skin. This therapy is known to increase collagen production and regenerate tissues, which can have a significant impact on the treatment of acne-prone, irritated, and inflamed skin. It is also quite effective at reducing and even eliminating fine lines and wrinkles.
A number of different frequencies and wavelengths are used to treat the skin, but the two most popular therapies involve the use of blue and red light.
Why use Red light?
Red light is used because it is able to more effectively permeate outer layers of skin, applying heat and healing to cells in the body. Red light does not damage your skin like a tanning bed or a day at the beach, and there are virtually no side effects.
Is Red Light Therapy Painful?
No. The technique is painless, and results last long after treatment sessions have ended. Many satisfied patients attest to the effectiveness of red light application and they continue to use it to treat and maintain skin conditions.
