What is LED colour therapy?

Light is the fastest thing in the universe, therefore making the treatment benefits work quicker. It is a completely non-invasive therapy to encourage the body to begin to heal itself. LED therapy is a great ‘add on’ to complement most treatments performed in salons and clinics.

Different colours will have different effects on the skin.

For example, blue UV light is used in the treatment of psoriasis.

The treatment is non-invasive with no sensations being felt during the treatment. The light works on a cellular level similar to that on photosynthesis in plants.

In the beauty and cosmetology industries light therapy is where coloured lamps are used to stimulate and decongest the skin and muscles. Different colours are used to either stimulate the circulation and lymphatic flow, or to calm and decongest areas. By directing coloured light towards the affected areas of the face, or body, can encourage physical healing. This method is commonly used in dermatological practice, again blue light has been shown to be effective in treating symptoms of jaundice in newborn babies.
