Light Therapy: the must have add on to any skin treatment
Have you ever walked out of a facial and with aggravated skin? Maybe you’ve had an extraction or a herbal peel, but you don’t walk out looking as good as you feel.
As a long time acne sufferer, I often leave extraction appointments far more self-conscious than I did when I walked in. I know the redness is temporary and the bumps will go, but my immediate reaction is to cover my face in makeup, which is the worst thing you could do.
Light Therapy changed all of this for me. The first time I had it done, I didn’t understand how putting my face under a blue light would do anything. I assumed it was another beauty fad therapists offered. However, twenty minutes and a quick power nap later, I woke up to visibly calmer, brighter skin. The results were immediate. My blotchy skin had evened out, the aggravated spots where my pimples had been popped weren’t raised like usual, and I left with that lovely post-facial glow I always see on Instagram. the best part, is there was no pain just the enjoyable sensation of being in the sun.
LED Light therapy otherwise known in our Face Plus Clinics as Omnilux or Healite is the perfect example of where science and beauty have united to create a smart skin product. It works by targeting specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skins support structure. There are different light colours that target different skin concerns, however, the treatment is beneficial for men and women of all ages. While the results can be seen immediately, when the treatment is consistent the benefits increase. It not only helps heal acne and acne scars, but also smooths the skin texture and minimizes the appearance of fine lines.
So what’s the catch? There is none….unless you don’t have 20 minutes to spare. Light therapy is a lovely way to end a facial, however, can also be enjoyed on its own. If you’re overworked and need a pick me up or perhaps you have an event that night and your skin is looking a bit lack luster, Light Therapy is a cost effective, no downtime solution that will have you looking and feeling your best and back at your desk before your boss has even noticed you’re gone.
