LightStim LED Therapy
In Arizona

Who knew that the same technology that brightens roadways and signs can be used to improve the quality of your skin? LED light therapy is a unique way to counteract a variety of skin conditions, including acne, wrinkles, inflammation, and redness. Rejuvenate your skin with LED therapy at DrSkin today.


What is LightStim LED Therapy?

As you may know, LED is short for light-emitting diode. Once used for plant growth experiments and now spreading throughout the world, LED lights can be used in a number of ways. The latest discovery is that certain colors and wavelengths of LED lights are therapeutic. Unlike IPL and lasers, LED is non-thermal, non-invasive, and requires no downtime post-treatment. UV rays are not involved, and so you do not have to worry about any risky side effects.

Also, LED light therapy is not the same as photodynamic therapy, which uses aminolevulinic acid (ALA) on the skin to change how the skin and light interact. Unlike photodynamic therapy, LED therapy does not have a recovery period afterward.

How Does LED Light Therapy Work?

LED therapy bathes the skin in a continuous beam of light. Although it is known that LED therapy benefits the skin, science has yet to reveal the how. Rest assured, research has been conducted on the interaction between LED light and skin, and many studies have revealed success in treating skin conditions. Wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and acne flareups have all been treated with LED light. Additionally, even a single session yields results.

 The color of the light used alters some of the effects:

  • Red light: Stimulates collagen production by sinking deep into the dermal layers.
  • Blue light: Can kill the bacteria that causes acne and soothes the skin.
  • Green light: Known for diminishing hyperpigmentation and having anti-inflammatory effects by calming redness.
  • Yellow or amber light:Used for addressing sun damage, hyperpigmentation, stimulating lymphocytes, and refreshing the skin.

Tired of dealing with acne? DrSkin also offers dual light acne treatments that utilize both blue and red light therapies, as opposed to just red light.

The Benefits of LightStim LED Therapy

Thinking about trying LED light therapy for your skin’s health? Here are some of the benefits:

  • Non-invasive procedure that induces the body’s natural healing processes
  • Reduces redness and swelling
  • Different light colors and wavelengths can target different conditions, such as blue light for acne-causing bacteria
  • Can be blended with a variety of other services, including facials
  • LED therapy is quick, painless, and effective

What Can I Expect From LED Therapy?

LED therapy is held in-office and conducted by a specialist. On the day of your appointment, we will get you checked in and ready to go. Depending on the device the technician is using, you may be asked to either sit or lay down. In some instances, we will need to better target the area with a probe or a mask.

Since LED therapy is non-invasive and cannot burn the skin, you do not have to account for any downtime or side effects, though headaches and eye strain may happen. No pain is involved, either. As such, the treatment is relaxing and lasts for about 15-30 minutes.

You may need to sit for more than one session, though they will be spaced apart. During your consultation, the DrSkin team will come up with a care plan that is unique to you. The frequency of your LED therapy sessions will be decided then.

Is There Any Downtime Involved?

None whatsoever! Unlike microneedling and laser treatments, LED therapy is non-invasive and gentle. Once your session wraps up, you are free to walk out of the office doors and go about your day. The only thing you have to do post-treatment is worry about sun exposure, because that can reverse all the good your LED therapy did for your skin.

Who is a Good Candidate For LED Therapy?

Good news! Skin types and tones of all kinds can benefit from LED therapy, as there are a variety of light colors to use. Colors are generally selected based on your skincare goals. For instance, you might choose blue for acne or red for anti-aging. If you want to enhance your wellness visit at DrSkin, LED therapy can even be combined with other kinds of facials, giving you ever better, longer-lasting results.

The only time LED therapy may not be the best choice is when you are pregnant. Speak to a medical professional or a team member at DrSkin for more information.

Energize Your Skin with LED Therapy

LED light therapy is an amazing option for boosting your facial treatments or dealing with acne. At DrSkin, we can fine tune your skincare regimen and use LED therapy to get you the results you want even faster.
