We got an insight into Hollywood beauty with celeb dermatologist Dr Amanda Hill.
If LED therapy is a new concept to you, prepare to be amazed! I've been using it for years now and can honestly say it's one of the most effective skin treatments I've ever used. It's done amaaazzingg things for my skin, keeping wrinkles at bay and my absolute go-to for stopping breakouts in their track.
LED, aka Light Emmitting Diode is a small computer chip in a glass-like case that emits therapeutic wavelengths of light energy.
Originally discovered by NASA, they found it penetrated deep into tissues and stimulated cell growth and regeneration. It was originally used to heal wounds and surgery scars as your skin converts the light energy into the fuel needed to work effectively.
We spoke with leading dermatologist Dr Amanda Hill, who boasts an impressive celeb clientele including Jessica Alba, Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet. Not only does Amanda work with global cosmetics brands including Estée Lauder, but she knows all there is to know about skin treatments.
Amanda explained to us why she believes LED light therapy is the least invasive and most effective skin treatment available right now. Plus, it's painless and can be done from home!
What it does all depends on the color of the lights. The most popular is Red, which penetrates 630 nanometers into the skin, microscopically hitting the bloodstream and increasing the elasticity of collagen fibers. In simpler terms, your skin remains supple and looks younger over time.
Blue is antibacterial in nature, so great for treating acne, and Green is the go-to for anti-redness and sensitivity. Yellow is used for draining and Pink for hyperpigmentation and scarring.
You can absolutely notice results after 1 treatment when paired with a good Serum and Moisturizing cream.
I recommend my clients use their at-home LED kits for 10 minutes, three times per week for maximum effectiveness. Results can last up to 3 weeks as it simulates ATP energy.
Other therapies offered in clinics and some at-home formulas are actually quite damaging to the skin.
For example, laser therapy penetrates deeper, but often damages collagen fibers, has negative side effects and is invasive and painful. LED therapy is non-invasive and has healing benefits.
You may need to add LED therapy to your routine, but in the long-run it's better. I encourage my clients to strengthen and support the skin for the long term benefits rather than looking for a quick fix.
Avoid retinol and any form of facial peel as the LED light pushes the product into the bloodstream. I always use the same products as I know they're clean and healing.
None! There are no age limitations (I have used it on acne-prone teenagers). It is, without a doubt, the least invasive and most supportive treatment available right now.
There are truly no side effects, it's completely natural and produces real results.
My favourite LED product right now is actually portable and hand-held, the UltraRadiance™ by evercura. It's been a big part of my personal routine for some months now, and it's something I recommend to all my clients.
It's much, much cheaper than an in-salon treatment but gets the same results, and it has five color variations to cover all desired results.
