What is 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.

How is LED light therapy performed?

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 after LED light therapy 

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.
