LED light therapy technology was developed in the USA by NASA. LED stands for light emitting diode. LED light therapy is a safe and revolutionary skin rejuvenation system which uses different wavelengths of LED used to target various conditions like acne, aging skin, stress reduction and weight loss. Each wavelength penetrates a different depth of the dermis which causes a different effect within the skin. LED light therapy involves the use of continuous light rather than pulses of light (IPL) and is a painless non-invasive treatment option that requires absolutely no down time after treatments.
