LED Facial

How Does It Work?

Quite simply phototherapy or more commonly know as an LED Facial at Aesthetica Birmingham, is "the use of light to alter biological activity. Phototherapy involves exposing cells or tissue to low levels of light in the visible or near infrared part of the spectrum. When light of these wavelengths penetrate the skin they are absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell which starts a cascade of inter and extracellular reactions that promotes healthier skin. These reactions first begin when the light is absorbed by the cells mitochondria and continue to work even after the light has been switched off. Phototherapy is not a new science and today over 1000 clinical studies have studied the effects of light on our bodies and on many cellular processes demonstrating that light:
  • Enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP which enhances cellular metabolism and proliferation
  • Enhances cellular homeostasis, repairing imbalances within the cell and between cells
  • Increases blood flow and lymph activity to eliminate toxins and accelerate healing
  • Enhances RNA and DNA synthesis to improve reproduction of healthy cells
  • Increases proliferation of cell types involved in promoting and maintaining healthy skin
  • Increases synthesis of collagen and elastin

LED Facial FAQ’s

lightfusion- is a professional grade light emitting diode device for the treatment of periorbital wrinkles and pigmented skin. It helps reduce pore size, improve skin tone and texture and gives a vibrant healthier looking skin after just one treatment. It's a natural, non-invasive, painless treatment suitable for all skin types and conditions.
lightFusion- uses two clinically proven wavelengths of light 633nm or red light and 830nm or near infra red light. These wavelengths have been shown repeatedly in clinical studies to be absorbed by cells stimulating ATP the energy source of the cell and and a cascade of cellular processes that stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve blood flow and tissue oxygenation helping skin cells absorb topical skincare products. In addition red and infrared light helps reduce inflammation, accelerate wound healing and help reduce brown spots and pigmentation.
Yes, lightfusion- is non-ablative, meaning it does not cut, burn or break the skin surface. Lasers work by using heat and this heat causes trauma within the skin that creates a wound that then repairs. This means that after a laser session, your skin will be very red, often painful and you will peel. The recovery time is anything from 3-10 days with a laser treatment.

Because lightfusion creates no heat it's suitable for all skin types, and is clinically proven to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, improve skin tone and texture and reduce inflammation.
No, unlike other LED systems that surround the face this device is specifically designed to deliver a comfortable photofacial to the skin, it does not cover the eyes or feel heavy on the skin. The LEDs used are the first of their kind to deliver two wavelengths at the correct energy from one diode, making the device lightweight and enabling treatment times to be reduced to just 10 minutes.
No, light therapy works through primary and secondary mechanisms so even if the light does not cover a specific area, cells will still be stimulated in this area because of the biochemical cascade that takes place within and between the cells.
After a single photofacial you will see firmer, tighter skin with a reduced pore size and skin will feel softer and smoother due to the instant hydration and enhanced absorption of the ingredients in the hydrogel mask. Your complexion will look more vibrant and fresher due to the increased blood flow, tissue oxygenation and increased cellular ATP.
Photodynamic Therapy is an especially effective in-office "power-level" treatment. PDT controls resistant, hard-to-treat active acne by combining light and a special light-activated solution that targets and destroys acne activity. PDT also diminishes older acne scars leaving your skin smoother.

Advantages
rapid treatment of acne lesions all over the face
no scarring
no surgical excisions
no systemic side effects
skin appears refreshed and younger

We advise 8 treatments at weekly intervals to obtain optimal results.

Understanding acne

Acne results from the obstruction and inflammation of the sebaceous glands, and it affects 80% of the human population. Acne typically begins in adolescence with hormonal changes. However, there are many older individuals who suffer from "adult acne.

There are different levels of acne ranging from milder comedonal (blackheads and whiteheads) to moderate, pustular, on to severe cystic acne. In many cases, several or all of these levels of acne can be present on an individual simultaneously.
