Here are some common queries many of our customers in New York City and Westchester County have had before embarking on LED Light Therapy. If you have others, feel free to call our offices and we’ll be happy to address them for you.
What is LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy is a skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light. Usually near-infrared, red, yellow, green and blue or combinations of these colored lights are used, depending on your skincare concerns.
What can LED Light Therapy do?
LED Light Therapy commonly works to:
• Reduces inflammation caused by acne or rosacea
• Increase blood circulation
• Stimulate collagen production
• Assist in healing wounds
• Help repair damaged skin or heal skin conditions
• Increase oxygenation and restoration of the skin’s natural cellular activity, which keeps the skin renewed and fresh.
Is LED Light Therapy safe?
LED is a non-invasive treatment which, when correctly used, has no adverse side effects. There will be no redness or swelling when you complete your treatment session leaving you free to resume normal activities.
Am I a candidate for LED Light Therapy?
LED Light Therapy is suitable for all skin types and pigmentations. It assists the skin’s own ability to rejuvenate itself by boosting collagen synthesis and stimulating wound healing. However, LED Light Therapy should not be used if you’re taking Accutane or any medicine that makes your skin sensitive to sunlight such as some antibiotics. Do not use LED Light Therapy if you are pregnant.
How many sessions will I need?
A course of LED Light Therapy is usually 10 sessions spaced at weekly or twice weekly intervals. Expect your skin to continue improving for several weeks after your final treatment. LED Light Therapy is also available as an add-on to any facial service, when permitted. For more information, talk to one of our skin experts today.
When I have completed all my treatment sessions, how long will the effects last?
The effects of LED Light Therapy are not permanent. This is because your skin cells are constantly being shed and renewed. Expect to have follow-up sessions in around 4 to 6 months. LED Light Therapy can also be brought home, using the faceLITE.
How much does LED Light Therapy cost at Youtherapy?
Individual LED Light Therapy treatments start at $125. Youtherapy also offers discounted packages for your convenience.
