LED Light therapy | How does it work?

What is LED Light Treatment?

LED light therapy treatment is the use of specific light wavelengths to energise our skin cells to accelerate the natural process of regeneration and repair. Also known as phototherapy, these specific wavelengths of light deliver clinically proven results by stimulating our skin cells. This non-invasive, highly relaxing treatment is suitable for all skin types and skin concerns and can be used on its own or in combination with other skin treatments to enhance results.

LED light treatment or light therapy is proven to treat a variety of skin concerns from anti-ageing to acne as well as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.

What does LED Therapy treat?

LED light treatment is recommended for the treatment of acne and to prevent breakouts, it is also healing for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis as well as Rosacea. It helps reduce scarring and is also proven to rejuvenate skin for anti-ageing.

How does it work?

Specific wavelengths of light can effectively target receptors in our skin cells and by stimulating them the cells’ natural rejuvenation and repair process is accelerated. It is the increased cellular activity that builds collagen, increases elasticity, kills bacteria and accelerates repair.

Clinical studies have shown that skin cells can regenerate themselves 150 to 200% faster when exposed to certain LED wavelengths and hydration can be increased by 600%!

Different types of LED lights:

Red Light therapy is used for skin rejuvenation and healing. It is also used for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. It has a powerful anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.

Blue light therapy has a powerful antibacterial effect so is highly beneficial for acne and to prevent breakouts.

Near Infra-Red light therapy is the most deeply absorbed wavelength by skin and works with red light to achieve optimum repair and rejuvenation. It is ideal for anti-ageing, pigmentation and relieves pain and inflammation too

Not all LED light treatments are the same! Devices vary dramatically in terms of their strength, that is why we like to use Dermalux LED devices which are the most powerful on the market, enabling you to have more effective treatments in shorter treatments, they are medically CE certified for acne, psoriasis, wound healing and pain relief.

How safe is it?

The LED light does not contain the harmful UV wavelengths that we associate with Sun damage. It does not use lasers or chemicals and has no downtime or side effects so it is totally safe for all skin types and concerns.


LED light treatment immediately awakens a tired complexion and calms inflammation, irritation and redness. However, a course of treatment gives lasting benefits as it encourages cellular turn over and builds collagen, the holy grail of anti-ageing! Following a treatment, skin will continue to rejuvenate and improve for up to 4-6 weeks.

LED light treatment is available at thespaCLINIC as a stand alone treatment as well as in combination with other facials and skin treatments. It is always included within our Premium Hydrafacials as well as our Professional Peel treatments. LED Light therapy has beneficial effects from a one-off treatment, however, for optimum long-term results, a course is recommended.
