Light Therapy Facial Treatment
Our Kaeso facials come
with the option of LED Light Therapy - These are a less intense version than
the full LED mask or light panel, so more relaxing. There is no additional
cost if you choose an LED light therapy option, it is a free option in addition
or as well as the Ozone steam option (which helps eliminate toxins, and is
beneficial to Acne sufferers)
Benefits of LED light
This has a wavelength between 620nm (light red) and 700nm (dark red) and is
predominately used for its anti-ageing benefits because of its ability to
stimulate collagen and elastin production. Red therapy also helps to strengthen
the skin, thanks to the additional collagen production making the skin more
resilient. Making it a very effective treatment for rosacea and reducing the
redness that is associated with broken / weak capillaries. It also helps the
skin to retain moisture more effectively. Red light therapy is also extremely
anti-inflammatory therefore reduces inflammation within the tissues and helping
to accelerate the healing process, so is particularly useful for healing blemishes,
repairing sun damage, fading scars and improving overall skin tone.
This has a wavelength between 570nm and 620nm. Sometimes broken down into
Yellow or Orange. Amber light therapy is effective in the treatment of skin
issues involving redness such as rosacea. It is ideal for sensitive skin because
of its calming and soothing. Amber light therapy helps to flush waste from
the skin, boost lymphatic flow and increase cellular growth. The skin effects
are boosted when used in combination with red light therapy.
This has a wavelength between 495 nm and 570 nm. Green light is absorbed by
the melanin producing cells of the skin, slowing melanin production, and gradually
breaking up excess melanin collections which are then reabsorbed by the body.
Green light is known to have a highly calming effect on the skin. It can also
brighten the complexion by helping to lighten areas of hyperpigmentation,
freckles and age spots.
This has a wavelength between 405nm and 420nm and is predominately used for
its anti-bacterial benefits and therefore used in acne treatment. Blue light
at wavelength of 415nm is absorbed by a molecule called porphyrin. P.acne
bacteria contain an abundant amounts of porphyrin. The absorption of blue
light by porphyrin creates singlet oxygen (free radicals) which are released
into the bacteria, killing the bacteria. Blue light is also anti-inflammatory.
However for best results blue light is used in combination with red light
therapy, for its additional skin rejuvenation and wound healing benefits.
