Lightwave LED Light Therapy
It’s The Smart New Way To Reverse The Signs of Aging And Damage!
Why LED Light Treatment?
At Glow we use the LIGHTWAVE LED system. There are many people offering LED these days but without the right system and strength of output, you will likely see little to no changes. LIGHTWAVE without a doubt is the best system there is on the market today. My husband who is and electrical engineer did extensive research and found this system to be the one that would put out enough LED strength and have enough lights on the panel to penetrate the depths of the skin needed to make a noticeable change. If you have tried other systems or paid for a cheap treatment with little to no results, then you have to give the LIGHTWAVE system a shot. LIGHTWAVE’S patented Red, Infrared, and blue light therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort. Our innovative aesthetic treatments help counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne, and acne scarring. LIGHTWAVE provides noticeable results, often in a couple of treatments, without the high cost or downtime of other more expensive treatment options.
What To Expect
LIGHTWAVE is safe, simple, and easy. The amount of time you spend with us at Glow for your treatment depends on what your skin needs are, but you can be done with a light treatment session as quick as 15 min or as long as 30 min. If you are having other treatments along with you light therapy such as exfoliating treatments, you will have to allow for that additional time as well. You will also need to allow for about 15 to 20 min pre and post care. It’s so simple and fast that many people are able to do this on a lunch break or a quick stop after work, however the relaxing, euphoric effect can usually last all day or night.
Each individual responds differently. Some notice changes much more quickly than others depending on the needs of your skin, reason for therapy, age, damage and thickness.
Concerned about eyes and the brightness?
When going under the lights you will notice that this system is very bright and some people become concerned. The reason the Lightwave system may seem brighter to you than some other treatments you may have had in the past is because of the strength and output of this system. This is the most effective system out there. This light therapy system has been studied extensively and used by many doctors, scientists and even astronauts! The light being omitted has been show to actually help the eyes. Studies have shown it to help macular degeneration even. We do cover your eyes with goggles because we want to protect the retina from the brightness, and for your comfort, but again studies have shown this treatment to actually be able to improve some eyes, so there is no need to worry. I have included a link that you can go to and read up on the scientific study of this topic. Most of our lights are just continuous light but, some of the treatments like the TLI settings, do have pulsed light, so if you have epilepsy we would not use the pulsed light settings on you and would want you to check with your doctor about the continuous light as well. Other than epilepsy light therapy is one of the safest no down time effective treatments available.
Types Of LED Light Treatments
Red Light Therapy
The LED red light therapy is designed to do many things but used for anti aging and pigmentation, it will re-hydrate the face, and increase collagen and elastin formation, resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkle and plump the skin giving it that youthful, full and dewy fresh look. It also aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues, and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement, erasing years from the face. Achieving these results and keeping them requires multiple sessions and then at least a monthly upkeep. Ten treatments (twice a week for 5 weeks) are recommended and once a month maintenance will prolong the youthful appearance. Pigmentation is stubborn especially if it is Melasma or dark. Most of these conditions will require other treatments as well like peels, topical treatments or even laser treatment, but light therapy will absolutely help hurry this along and also evens the skin tone beautifully for those with light unevenness from aging or sun.
Infrared Light Therapy
The Infrared light will stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue in order to soften scaring. Continued therapy will also flatten scarring and it will become thinner. Infrared light is also especially helpful with pain. The red and infrared light can be used together to address inflammation associated with trauma and or an allergic reaction that causes discomfort with a focus on clients who experience persistent problems. It is also used within 72 hours of any traumatic event including post-surgical interventions to reduce scarring and encourage normal tissue formation. This combo is also especially helpful for those with rosacea.
Blue Light Therapy
This amazing light is designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce the P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. 15 minutes of Blue light enters the sebaceous glands and singlet oxygen is created. Singlet oxygen then in turn kills the bacteria. We also like to include 15 min of red light with the acne treatment to aid in the healing process of the skin and prevent infection and scarring from occurring. Depending on the severity of your acne you may also need other intervention as well, but this treatment I have seen do wonders on people that have tried everything to reduce their acne with little to no results. This will also back up and hurry along other treatments you might be using as well. You will need a series of treatments for ongoing success but can also use this as a single does if you just want to make sure your looking great for a one time event.
Light Therapy Treatment
Single light therapy treatment includes a quick cleanse followed by a LIGHTWAVE treatment designed for whatever your skin care needs may be. Treatments are recommended to be used in a series for better results. See our LIGHTWAVE System Page for a full description on the different light treatments and the LIGHTWAVE system.
