LED Light Therapy

Skip the downtime and rejuvenate your skin with gentle light therapy.

While lasers can have impressive benefits for your skin, they also tend to come with discomfort and downtime. LED light therapy can have many of the same benefits without the inconvenience. This skin rejuvenation treatment involves exposing the skin to different wavelengths of visible light that help promote cellular growth and healing.

Learn More About LED Light Therapy

LED light therapy is safe and beneficial for almost everyone. It is suitable for all skin types and tones and customizable for a wide range of concerns. Each light wavelength penetrates the skin at different depths and has unique benefits, allowing us to create a personalized treatment that addresses your specific concerns. LED light therapy is also an excellent addition to more intensive treatments like skin resurfacing or microneedling.

During a detailed consultation, one of the experts at Rapaport Plastic Surgery will evaluate your skin and create your customized light therapy treatment plan. We may recommend LED light therapy for the following skin concerns:

LED light therapy, also known as Photodynamic Therapy, is a powerful and key component to healing your skin. Our LED technology emits beneficial, UV-free light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural photo-biochemical process to build new proteins and regenerate cells. When the skin is exposed to multiple wavelengths of light during photodynamic therapy, there is a decrease in redness and inflammation, an increase in lymphatic drainage flow, and a notable improvement in skin elasticity and acne.

There are several light wavelengths we can use to optimize your treatment. LED light therapy most commonly uses blue light to reduce bacteria and inflammation and red light to boost collagen production. While typically performed on the face, LED light therapy can also treat skin concerns on the body.

LED light therapy is one of the gentlest, most convenient options for skin rejuvenation. It requires no numbing cream or needles. You’ll simply lie back and relax while your skin is exposed to the LED light with a lamp or mask. This typically lasts 20 to 30 minutes. You may feel warmth from the light but no discomfort. Patients often find the treatment pleasant and relaxing.

There is no downtime after LED light therapy. You will most likely have no side effects, though occasionally, patients experience minor redness for a couple of hours. This simple, non-invasive treatment allows you to resume your day immediately with no discomfort or recovery time. However, limiting sun exposure and wearing sunscreen after light therapy is especially important. You should also keep your skin moisturized, and we may recommend avoiding harsh skincare products like retinol for a few days.

Keep in mind that LED light therapy is often part of a comprehensive treatment plan, including other procedures. There may be other side effects or aftercare if you also undergo a treatment like Morpheus8 or chemical peels.

Patients often notice their complexion is brighter immediately after an LED light therapy session, but optimal results take a series of treatments. We often recommend six or more weekly sessions. The number of treatments you’ll need will depend on your skin condition and goals.

A series of LED light therapy sessions can provide noticeable improvements to your skin tone and texture. For many patients, it is an effective way to reduce acne and other inflammatory conditions. It can also improve signs of aging and sun damage. Your light therapy results will likely last several months before you’ll need maintenance treatments. Protecting your skin from sun damage and using high-quality skincare can help maintain your results.
