Cosmecutis™ Light Emitting Diode (LED) Therapy

Chromatherapy, or using colour to promote wellbeing, has been used since Ancient Egyptian times. Today, top spas offer it alongside massage to activate self-healing.

An innovation that also uses the colour spectrum for healing purposes is LED therapy, also known as photodynamic therapy (PDT). This technology that was originally developed by NASA for use in their U.S. Space Programme, to improve the healing of wounds and tissue growth in astronauts in space. NASA’s research concluded that frequencies of light could stimulate new cell growth. When this technology is used on ageing concerns, including broken capillaries, dehydration, laxity, lines and wrinkles and sun damage, this new cell growth both reduces and prevents these visible signs.

LED therapy has now evolved into a state-of-the-art medical device that is used to treat health conditions such as cancer, and skin conditions, including ageing, acne, rosacea, eczema.

FDA approved, LED therapy is beneficial for all skin types and is known as one of the most effective, non-invasive, skin treatments to reverse, treat and prevent visible signs of skin ageing as well as other skin conditions.

LED therapy works by using 100% safe and natural, low level, non-thermal, light energy, which the skin absorbs and converts into cell energy. This cell energy significantly increases cellular metabolism and intercellular communication, resulting in cellular rejuvenation and a clear, radiant and youthful complexion naturally, without harsh chemical treatments or invasive surgical procedures.

Each colour of light works at a specific wavelength and produces different molecular effects on the skin to target individual skin concerns and problems. A combination of colours may be used depending on individual skin needs.

Cosmecutis™ LED Therapy is suitable for all skin colours and types. It is commonly used on the face and neck although other areas of the body can be treated e.g. bacne, arthritis, muscle and joint pain.

For optimum and lasting results a course of treatments is recommended, although a single session ‘pick me up’ provides instant visible results. All treatments rehydrate, rejuvenate, restore or sooth skin depending on your individual skin needs.

Cosmecutis™ LED Therapy is included in the Cosmecutis™ Prescription Skin Treatment
