About LED Light Therapy
LED light therapy is a soothing and effective noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment for individuals experiencing acne breakouts, fine lines, rosacea, and scarring. This treatment, offered by DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, minimizes acne and helps to soothe the skin by reducing the swelling, redness, and inflammation associated with common skin conditions. During LED light therapy, a combination of red and blue lights penetrate the top layer of skin and stimulate the production of collagen to smooth the skin.

"Dr. DeRosa, Thank you for your compassion and understanding. It touched me deeply. I appreciate your kindness and generosity, it was a wonderful thing to experience. May it all come back to you a hundredfold."- Anonymous / Office Visit / Aug 25, 2023
"Dr.DeRosa was absolutely amazing. I have always wanted a nose job since I was 10 and just got one last week 11 years later. She understood exactly what I wanted right away and was the best doctor I’ve ever had. At 1 week post op my nose looks better than I could’ve expected. Obviously it’s still swollen so it’s rounded at the tip but she got rid of the bump and made the tip not droopy and completely natural cause she understands that as a young girl I don’t want it to be pointy or tilted up so much you can see in my nose like some people. Originally we didn’t think we’d need to break my nose but during surgery she made the call that in order to get it looking exactly how she knew I pictured it she did end up breaking it and making it thinner at the top and I’m glad she did because she understood the vision. She is so easy to talk to and understands how important it is to feel comfortable in this setting. Everyone who works there was so nice and made me feel comfortable the moment I opened the door and even answered my email two days after surgery at 8:30 pm when I had a question about the pain. If you are going to get rhinoplasty in highly recommended Dr. DeRosa."- B.M. / Google / Aug 16, 2023

"I went to see Dr. DeRosa for a Rhinoplasty procedure after having suffered significant damages to my nose due to a bike accident earlier last year. I honestly can say I’m so happy with the results! It took about four months after the procedure for it to show a substantial difference but it was well worth it.I highly recommend to anyone wanting/needing a rhinoplasty to give Dr. DeRosa a try. She will listen to your concerns and go over all your options all the while being very friendly and attentive. Her staff is very friendly and resourceful as well."- S.M. / Google / Aug 04, 2023
"Where to begin… I recently had the pleasure of undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure at DeRosa Center and I am thrilled to share my positive experience with others. From the initial consultation to the post-operative care, every aspect of my journey with this esteemed rhinoplasty business was exceptional. Jaimie who is an incredibly skilled surgeon, attentive staff and outstanding results have left me feeling more confident and satisfied than ever before. My experience with Jaimie and Derosa Center has exceeded any expectations I had for a rhinoplasty. I personally had no bruising and very minimal swelling after the rhinoplasty. The very moment Jaimie removed the cast from my nose I knew I chose the right surgeon. Her skills and knowledge, again, exceeded any expectations I had. I had paid for consults for a few other surgeons in the Boston area but after my consult with Derosa Center I knew that’s where I was going to have the procedure. Jaimie’s bed side manner and personality is so welcoming and comforting. Absolutely thrilled with my results."- S.N. / Google / Jul 28, 2023
Your LED light therapy session will last between 20 – 30 minutes. The procedure is warm and comfortable and will not cause any pain. During your treatment session, a member of our team will cleanse and prep your skin before gently gliding the LED handpiece over your face. The handpiece will send wavelengths and energy through the top layer of your skin to promote healing and stimulate the collagen production process. LED light therapy can be added to a facial rejuvenation treatment or performed as a standalone procedure.
What to Expect
Following your session, your skin may be slightly red and sensitive but will heal quickly over the next day or so. Patients typically notice softer, healthier skin in around 2 – 3 days. Our team may recommend several rounds of LED light therapy to help you achieve your personal aesthetic goals. During each treatment, collagen production will be stimulated for results that appear within a few weeks. As such, touch-up sessions may be rewarding and help protect and prolong your results.
