Light Therapy is a cosmetic treatment that uses gentle pulses of intense, infrared red and/or blue optimized light to treat undesirable pigment and vessels which can occur as a result of aging and lifestyle. Expect to see a decrease in the appearance of skin pigment and vessels and a more even skin tone. Results will progress over days/weeks after treatment. We offer two options for light therapy at Lush MedSpa.
What is Light Therapy?
Light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light to accelerate rejuvenation and repair skin cells. It’s a popular treatment due to its broad usage for improving sun damage, acne, dermatitis, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and general skin radiance.
How does it work?
Light therapy is an extremely relaxing method of promoting healthier skin. All you really have to do is lay back, and let the light do its magic. The core of the procedure involves specialized light energy being focused on the skin to increase collagen production as well as elevate ATP production in the cells of your skin. Collectively, this has many benefits including reduced swelling, improved circulation, increased cell energy and anti-aging benefits.
Candidates for Light Therapy
Light therapy is great for all skin types and can be an effective treatment for a wide variety of skin-related issues including acne, sun damage, rosacea, dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.
How do I prepare for my peel?Lush MedSpa recommends that you avoid aggressive exfoliation for 2 days prior to your procedure, that you refrain from waxing in the treated area for 5 days prior and that use cease the use of retinal at least 1 week prior.
How do I know which peel is right for me?We offer a variety of peels, each with unique solutions depending on your individual needs. Prior to scheduling a peel, we recommend you get a pre-peel consultation to determine which peel is best for your individual needs.
Does it hurt?uring the treatment, it is common to feel mild stinging or burning while the solution is in contact with the skin. Following a peel, your skin may appear red, feel tight or be mildly irritated. Collectively, most clients report only mild discomfort during and after the procedure. For more intensive chemical peels, moderate swelling and dryness may occur and in rare cases blistering.
When should I expect to see results from my peel?In the case of many peels, you will see noticeable improvements within the first few days after treatment. However, to achieve significant results, multiple treatments may be required.
What do I do when my skin starts peeling?We recommend you do not pick or pull at the dead skin and allow the skin to slough off naturally at its own pace. For more rapid peeling you can choose to forgo the use of moisturizers; however, if this becomes too uncomfortable moisturize to your comfort level. Once the peeling slows you can reintroduce moisture ideally with a product containing Hyaluronic acid.
