LED phototherapy is a light treatment that can be used to stimulate collagen production (reducing fine lines and wrinkles) and kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin, improving skin clarity—with no pain and no downtime.

LED phototherapy treatments are an excellent way to stimulate the skin to refresh itself by "super-charging" the cells and speeding up repair mechanisms. 


                                 Red light therapy: Activates collagen production to improve the visible signs of ageing,                                   to restore glowing, healthy-looking skin. It can also be used to reduce age spots,                                              sun damage, and overall redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries. Red light therapy                                       can also reduce the appearance of bruising and reduce healing time. Results are often                                   immediate.
