So if you have a skin concern and are wondering which light therapy or what products might be the best for you, call in to Facial Care By Sia and let us assist you in making great skin decisions!
What is Photo Therapy?
Phototherapy treatment, called Medi Light Therapy, employs various wavelengths of light to increase circulation and oxygen to the skin, therefore increasing the natural regeneration process in the skin and its supporting tissues.
What are the advantages of photorejuvenation light therapy?
Our Medi Light Therapy increases collagen synthesis, cellular growth, encourages lymphatic drainage and accelerates wound healing by reaching down to the dermis for deep cell stimulation, ensuring each cell gets maximum nutrition so it can function at its optimal level.
What can it be used for?
Light therapy can be used to improve almost every skin condition you can think of. In general:
- blue light therapy improves the appearance of acne and prevents new infections,
- red light therapy stimulates collagen and skin rejuvenation,
- infra red light therapy assists in calming inflammation and improving skin healing,
- green light therapy reduces capillaries, and
- yellow light therapy helps hyperpigmentation.
Photo dynamic therapy is also a fantastic skin photorejuvenation treatment. It stimulates, lifts and helps reduce fine lines, sagging and age spots.
Photodynamic therapy for acne
Photodynamic therapy is an amazing acne treatment. It increases circulation and the supply of oxygen in the skin, speeding up the natural regeneration and healing process in the dermis. Medi Light Therapy also kills bacteria in the skin, helping to naturally heal breakouts and prevent new ones from occurring.
Does it burn?
Unlike the old UV bright light therapy or the intense pulsed light therapy used in other clinics, our photo/light treatment uses NO UV light or lasers, so it does not burn the skin.
As you can see, photodynamic therapy is a breakthrough skin treatment with all the benefits of plastic surgery without pain, invasiveness or down time. Photo light therapy treatments can also treat chronic skin concerns such as eczema, rosacea and psoriasis.
Photodynamic therapy or PDT is a fantastic technological advance in skin care. Simply using this treatment can reverse the signs of aging and hold off the need for more invasive procedures almost indefinitely.
