Are you looking for a non-invasive, safe, and effective way to rejuvenate your skin, reduce acne breakouts, accelerate wound healing, and even manage pain? Well, look no further, LED therapy is here for the rescue! This one-stop-shop treatment has been around for a while now, but it has gained popularity in recent years for its impressive benefits in skin health. Pair that with the fact that it looks like something from the year 2519, and you have yourself a beauty treatment that you have to try. Below, we delve into the cosmic world of LED and its top benefits.


LED or Light Emitting Diode works by emitting wavelengths of red, infrared, and blue light deeply into the skin. The red light stimulates collagen synthesis within our cells resulting in smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. Regular LED treatments can improve the tone, texture, and overall skin health.


It is also an effective acne treatment. Blue light, in particular, has powerful antibacterial properties that kill Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), the acne-causing bacteria that contributes to pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Blue light also has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce swelling and redness associated with acne. And, if that’s not enough, blue light is also a great treatment option for people with inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea and eczema.


One of the other key benefits of LED is that there is no downtime, making this treatment a great option for nearly anyone. There’s no peeling, redness, or swelling after the treatment so you can have it done at any time. However, we do caution those who are using drugs like Accutane, or any other medications that can make you sensitive, to consult with your doctor beforehand.


At SkinQ, we offer LED in our Deluxe Facial. After the main steps of your facial are complete, you will receive 30 minutes of LED light therapy, and get to drift away to a different planet. Your esthetician will make sure that your skin is properly prepped for the treatment, apply eye protection, and then place the panel closely to the face (the closer the better for a more effective result). During part of the session, your esthetician will give you a hand and arm massage, and closely monitor that the panel is staying in place. When finished, they will follow up with appropriate serums based on the issues you’re trying to target that day.


In conclusion, you can resume your normal activities right afterward with the LED facial. And then, we recommend that you go out and tell all of your friends about the cool Guardians of the Galaxy facial treatment at SkinQ!


Peace & love,
