Humans and plants have more in common than you might think: mainly, the way light benefits our health. LED phototherapy, or “light emitting diode” therapy, uses various wavelengths to treat a variety of skin conditions. It’s similar to broadband light (BBL) treatments but emits less intense light. This means it can be used in combination with facials and other skin care treatments like microneedling.
Not only can phototherapy be used on its own to treat skin concerns, when used in combination it can enhance the results of your other treatments. It’s a great part of your winter skin care routine but can also be beneficial all year round! At SMooth Solutions Medspa we provide top of the line phototherapy in Naperville, we can even pair it with your other treatments at no cost!
How we use phototherapy in Naperville
LED light therapy has increased in popularity over the last few years, so much so that there are even at-home devices. However, the at-home devices use much lower frequencies than what we are able to use in the office, rendering them less effective.
Controlled levels of red, blue, and near infrared light are clinically shown to improve cell regeneration. Exposing the skin to these lights results in a healthier complexion. Your skin absorbs the energy from the light and it repairs your skin cells naturally.
