LED LIGHT THERAPY
Originally developed by NASA this technology was designed to grow plants in space. Plant cell walls and our skin cell walls are extremely similar, which is why we receive plant based ingredients so well both internally and externally, and like all great technology we scoop it up for our vanity purposes.
LED Light Therapy sends light waves deep into the skin to trigger natural intracellular reactions. Each color gives different skin responses.
There are various kinds of LED ("light emitting diode”) facials available on the market today and technology is rapidly evolving. The basic premise of LED skin therapy is that different colors trigger different reactions beneath the epidermis and penetrate the skin at various depths. LED provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. There are different kinds of LED devices that can be used such as a Panel LED, like the Omega Light we use or a handheld LED.
We incorporate the LED in many of our facial treatments but always before our Microcurrent treatments, consider it the stretching before the workout.
