LED 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

Red LED
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.

Amber LED
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.

Green LED
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.

Blue LED
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.
