Vanities' LED Light Therapy Treatment
Do you want YOUNGER skin?
Strengthen, rebuild, and energize your skin where it begins ... at the cellular level with Vanities' LED Light Therapy Treatments!
I have always believed the path to beautiful skin isn't by stripping off the top, but rather building from the foundation. Light Therapy is the perfect example of this. When you support your skin, it thanks you with beautiful results!
LED is a progressive rather than an aggressive approach and builds resistance over time to ageing and external factors.
Here are just a few of the enormous benefits!
- Stimulates collagen and elastin for younger skin.
- Increases lymphatic drainage for firmer skin.
- Stimulates the immune system for healthier skin.
- Kills the bacteria that causes acne for clearer skin.
- Reduces inflammation for all skin, especially acne & rosacea.
WRINKLES - and other annoyances!
Vanities' LED light therapy treatments help improve skin texture, color, and tone while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment will stimulate fibroblast cells within your dermis to produce more collagen and elastin. Collagen plumps up the skin to fill in fine lines and wrinkles, while elastin helps to firm sagging skin. It will also reduce inflammation and thereby decrease the redness associated with rosacea.
"THOSE DARN SPOT" [Hyperpigmentation]
LED light is the ultimate non-chemical solution to hyperpigmentation, discoloration, freckles, sun damage, and age spots. It lightens and reduces existing pigmentation, improves overall skin tone, and protects skin from future discolorations without the potentially harmful side effects of harsh bleaching agents. Light targets the melanocytes, melanin-producing cells located in the bottom layer of the skin's epidermis. This treatment inhibits the production of excess melanin, prevents it from traveling to the skin’s surface, and breaks up melanin clusters to diminish existing discoloration. When used consistently, you will the see and feel an appearance of a brighter, more luminous and radiant tone.
LED lights get straight to the underlying cause of acne - P.acnes bacteria. P.acnes release porphyrins, which self-destruct when they absorb light energy. This treatment will help tighten pores and decrease skin oiliness by regulating the amount of excess sebum produced by sebaceous glands. It also calms redness and reduces inflammation. When used consistently, it treats existing blemishes and prevents further outbreaks without negative side effects of topical medications.
The Vanities Light Therapy Facial is a gentle, non-invasive, advanced skin rejuvenation treatment that will, over a course of treatments, firm your skin, reduce-to-remove fine lines and wrinkles, lighten dark spots (hyperpigmentation), and reactivate your cells with youthful energy.
During your treatment, extraordinary results will begin immediately - within the skin - right at the heart of the cell. After the first treatment the skin feels tighter and more alive. With the effects of increased circulation, increased oxygenation, and increased moisture, you will notice a softening of the lines & folds, an increase of firmness and the result will be a healthy glow and total skin rejuvenation. And the results only get better with time. The cells will still be active and re-energized up to 180 days after your treatment series is finished!
Unlike more aggressive treatments such as laser resurfacing or IPL, there is no damage done to the cellular structure whatsoever. You will not need to take days off from work because your skin is flaming red and peeling off. In fact, this treatment is so gentle you could call it hypnotically meditative.
Q: HOW DOES VANITIES' LED LIGHT THERAPY DIFFER FROM LASER TREATMENTS?
A: LED phototherapy is non-ablative, meaning it does not cut, or burn or break the
skin surface as with Laser treatments. Lasers use heat and light to vaporize or
remove skin tissue to evoke a healing response in the skin over 1 to 4 months. Even
so-called “gentle Lasers”, which leave the skin intact, create microscopic wounds on
of the skin surface, and cause redness for up to a week, with some flaking, as the
Vanities' LED produces no heat, vaporization or burning of surrounding tissue, and thus, no inflammation and no erythema. Change occurs naturally over a few weeks at
the cellular level, so there’s no “down-time” for healing after the treatment.
Q: WHEN DO I SEE NOTICEABLE RESULTS?
A: For skin rejuvenation fine lines and wrinkles, noticeable results can be seen in as
few as two weeks, and up to a month after a 4 week treatment period. Clients need to
be compliant with home care. I will prescribe a home care routine for your specific needs. Rest assured that each and every product is custom-designed for you to achieve results.
Q: HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
A: This will depend on the number of treatments and the original condition of your skin. Lifestyle and home compliance will make a huge difference. The positive activity of the light therapy facials continue after your treatments, so after you have completed your series, a monthly facial will continue your results.
Now on to the SCIENCE!
[It gets a little complicated, you may want to pour a refreshment for this!]
Cellular activity and energy levels fall as we age. With the delivery of the correct wavelengths of LED light, these dermal cells receive a rejuvenating, anti-aging boost from the light energy. This safe, painless, natural healing process converts light energy within skin cells, very similar to the way photosynthesis takes sunlight and turns it into food energy in plants.
Light is absorbed in the mitochondria. Mitochondria are often referred to as the powerhouses of the cell. These important organelles transform glucose, a simple sugar, into molecules of an energy-rich substance called ATP. ATP drives virtually every cellular process that takes place in your body! What does this mean for your skin? Faster turnover and stronger, healthier cells = You look Vantastic!
Vanities' Light Therapy LED's signal the body to convert light energy into cellular energy naturally without causing damage or discomfort. It activates your skin's ATP (adenosine triphosphate) - the major source of energy for cellular reactions. ATP = CELL ENERGY!
By stimulating cytochromes (a protein that responds to color) LED prompts the skin's fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastin thereby strengthening sagging, wrinkled skin - without any heat or infrared rays (very important).
These favorable cellular and metabolic effects can also, over time, reduce age spots and dark pigmentation, lessen the look of broken capillaries, reduce inflammation, help to refine fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin soft, smoothed, refreshed and healthy looking. Vanities' Light Therapy also promotes faster healing of inflammatory acne, rosacea and areas of redness.
Simply put, it energizes each cell, restoring it's youthful vitality.
Consider having a Light Therapy Series twice a year - early Fall and early Spring is ideal.
Clinical studies have shown that 1 or 2 treatments per week for an average of 8-12 treatments are recommended for best results. The more severe the problem the more intensive the treatment schedule.
For clients wanting a general uplifting to their skin, we can add Light Therapy to your existing monthly facial. However, more dramatic results occur over a series of weekly appointments.
One treatment a week for twelve weeks has shown the most improvement in my client's skin. Because the results are cumulative and keep working after the treatment, the schedule can be slightly flexible and you will still achieve beautiful results.
***On a personal note: My Mother, who has smoked (yes, I've tried to get her to quit) for 50-years, has (well, HAD) those train track lines on her upper lip. She came in for weekly Light Therapy Facials and on the 8th week I could FEEL the indentions had lessened --- on the 12th week, I could SEE that they were less (to practically disappeared)! I think that is AMAZING - to correct 50-years worth of damage in such a short period of time.
During a Pigmentation-Lightening Series, please refrain from tanning or excessive sun exposure, and - as we all should do EVERY day - wear your Vantastic Skin Sunscreen SPF 30!
I think you will find Vanities' Light Therapy is far more cost effective than any of the other advanced forms of skin rejuvenation - and SO much healthier for your SKIN!
Please call me with any questions and let's set up your first Light Therapy Facial today!
