Light therapy works by using the skins ability to soak up light, which is then used as energy to revitalise the skins cells. The powerful wave lengths of light have the ability to penetrate the epidermis at varying depths to stimulate a healing response and treat a wide range of conditions. There are 4 different lights red, blue, green and yellow which all vary in depth and conditions that they treat.
LED Light therapy can be added to any facial and enhances the results of Dermapen treatments.

Also helps with skin cell regeneration. Relaxes acne scars, psoriasis and eczema, speeds up healing and reduces redness in the skin.
Blue Light- Can penetrate 1mm into the skin. The skin will feel refreshed and clear and will target bacteria within the skin and deep in the pores, this also helps suppress sebaceous glands which prevents excess sebum production.
