Phototherapy or light therapy is an AMAZING, EFFECTIVE and affordable treatment performed here at drsandymedicalspa. Light therapy utilizes red , blue and infra red ( for example red LED light is great for lines and wrinkles while blue light is used to treat acne)
Often used as a step in medical grade chemical peels , fillers, botox or mesotherapy LED is a proven anti-ageing and fast tracking healing method.
When the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength (performed by the aesthetic Doctor, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job.
The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back).
Thus, LED gives the cells a ‘full tank of fuel’ and these fibroblast cells start to produce collagen and elastin like when one was 20-25 years old.
Conditions that may be treated include rosecea, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, acne and hyper pigmentation
