LED LIGHT THERAPY IN COLUMBIA, SC
WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED Light Therapy is a painless, relaxing treatment that plumps up aging skin by boosting collagen production and treats mild to moderate acne. First developed by NASA, LED works by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of the skin. These light rays jumpstart internal processes like circulation, collagen production and help to decrease inflammation in the body. The machine used at Stacey O. Studio is a DermaGlow machine, also used at spas like the Ritz Carlton, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spas and Kaiser Permanente. This professional machine is much more powerful than LED lights available for home use and is completely safe.
LED rays (light emitting diodes) are wavelengths that are able to pass through tissue up to 1 inch deep. Different color rays have different skin benefits. For instance, red and near-infrared have beneficial effects on cells by “kick-starting” them into immediately creating more ATP (cellular energy) and increasing DNA and RNA activity. Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. The blue light combats acne. LED machines can also minimize fine lines and wrinkles, treat sun-damage and stretch marks, and reduce redness.
Clients should start to see improvements in their skin soon after their first treatment, but the results from cumulative sessions will be much greater. About 85 percent of clients that buy the LED series at Stacey O. Studio end up buying it again the next time it is offered.

IS IT SAFE?
Not only is LED effective, but it also has the added benefit of being painless and relaxing, with no recovery time required. LED can also be done on all skin types, regardless of ethnicity. Contraindications for light therapy include pregnancy and epilepsy, photo-allergy, and medications that cause light sensitivity (such as Tetracycline). Also, if you are currently taking steroids or cortisone injections, you should not receive light therapy. It remains cool and comfortable for the client because it uses spectral light instead of heat to activate the skin’s own biochemical healing processes. Although the light will seem very bright for the first couple of minutes, you will barely notice it when you start to relax. LED has also been proven to help users get into a meditative state, so the 20 minute sessions are a perfect way to still your mind and can be more relaxing than a long nap! Your eyes will be covered with a medical grade eye shield and goggles. There is no heat emitted from the light and you won't feel a thing.
LED benefits tired, aging skin: it helps with the softening of lines, folds and wrinkles, healthier circulation, increased moisture and radiance, accelerated skin repair, improved elasticity and skin texture, as well as stimulating the collagen process.

RECOMMENDED COLOR AND TREATMENT GUIDELINES
The different color wavelengths of our LED machine have different benefits. We will thoroughly examine your skin and discuss your goals and challenges before picking the colors best for you. Here is a small sampling of the available colors and benefits. We can also do some sessions that combine a few minutes of every color to give you a spectrum of skin help!
Red LED Light
Red LED Light, featured on Dr. Oz and one of Hollywood’s top beauty secrets, has the ability to reach down into all the layers of the skin where it rejuvenates, stimulates collagen production, prompts cellular repair, and increases circulation promoting a more vibrant and youthful complexion. Red LED lights work synergistically to deliver optimal skin rejuvenation. This combination of LED lights is ideal for deeper lines and wrinkles, scarring, promoting a more even skin tone, and burning fat.
Green LED Light
Green light is absorbed into the skin where it has a calming effect. It helps to lighten hyper-pigmentation spots revealing a brighter complexion. The calming effect also has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the surface of the skin. Green LED Therapy is used to treat dilated capillaries, sagging skin around the eyes, under eye circles, hyperpigmentation and sun spots.
Blue LED Light
Blue LED light has been proven to have powerful anti-bacterial properties that have the ability to kill the acne causing bacteria, P. acnes. It prevents and treats acne. Blue light also helps to purify the skin, stabilize oil glands, and sooth inflammation.
Light therapy offers a powerful yet gentle means for obtaining more beautiful skin. It gives you the opportunity to treat an array of skin concerns without chemicals, drugs, or invasive measures. The skin responds quickly and very positively to the different colors in the spectrum.
