Red and Blue L.E.D. "Light Emitting Diode" Therapy is a gentle and effective advanced treatment, that is even safe to have done during pregnancy, or on tweens and teens. It can help heal, calm, hydrate, kill bacteria and increase collagen and elastin production-perfect for those with sensitive, irritated, acne-prone, and/or aged skin. *At Elysian, you also have the option of increasing the effects of L.E.D. Therapy by combining it with the powerful infusion current, Electroporation.
Decrease inflammation, stimulate collagen and elastin, kill acne bacteria and increase circulation. Receive a double cleanse, tone, gentle exfoliation (skin dependent), and Red and/or Blue Light Therapy to target specific skin concerns, Super healing, calming and rejuvenating, this treatment is suitable for the most sensitive of skin types, and even safe enough to have during pregnancy.
The combined medical-grade system that includes Electroporation and L.E.D. Therapy really enhances the effects of the L.E.D. treatment by assisting in deeper product infusion, increasing circulation and muscle contraction for more efficient delivery of nutrient and vitamins to the skin, and stimulating fibroblast activity for increased collagen and elastin production. A perfect and powerful anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and acne treatment, especially for sensitive or reactive skin types.
Red light therapy (Red LED Therapy) is anti-inflammatory. It treats deeper into pores as it can travel further than blue light. It can repair damaged cells, and regulate sebum (oil) production, so it is often used in conjunction with blue light therapy to treat oily skin, as well as inflammatory skin conditions and infections. Red light has also been seen to rejuvenate the appearance of skin after regular use over-time; when it penetrates into the dermal layer it can stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin (the proteins responsible for keeping skin plump, firm and intact). It repairs damaged cells that have been damaged by the sun or other extrinsic factors and can reduce inflammation from free radical damage
Like lasers, there is a different LED to treat different skin conditions. The Blue LED has antibacterial properties and has been FDA approved. Acne bacteria, known as Propoinibacterium Acnes (P.Acnes) are killed by this visible blue light that emits wavelengths between 407-420 nanometers. The bacteria have pigments in their protective cell membranes that resonate at those frequencies and when a blue LED is applied these pigments begin to break down the membrane, eventually killing the bacteria. Many people who use blue light therapy for acne notice a decrease in acne lesions and inflammation because the body starts to slow the production of inflammatory chemicals that kill bacteria (since the bacteria is already dead).
Electroporation is the most effective non-invasive, needle-free technology available to safely transfer products into the skin. Electroporation has also been called "needle-free Mesotherapy". It uses short modulated pulses of high voltage to create transient openings into the skin. It momentarily disrupts the cell-membrane, creating a semi-permeable pathway which allows for the entry of product. Once the pulse ceases the membrane returns to its original structure, leaving product in the cell. The outcome, especially used in conjunction with LED therapy, is a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, and increase in collagen production.
