WHAT IS LED LIGHT THERAPY?
LED light therapy is the process of converting light energy into cellular energy for natural, non-invasive skin rejuvenation. Through a combination of Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared light therapy these wavelengths work for anti aging therapy, wrinkle treatment, scar treatment, body treatments, acne treatment and more.
Red LED light therapy stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen, which gives young skin its plump look. This therapy also minimizes fine lines and wrinkles, treats sun-damage and stretch marks.
Infrared (IR) LED light therapy is similar to Red LED light therapy, except infrared energy is invisible, and can travel much deeper into the body and can reach deep into soft tissues, muscles and joints.
Blue LED light therapy is quickly absorbed by acne-causing bacteria. Molecules within the bacteria then react by producing singlet oxygen free radicals that in-turn destroy the P. Acnes bacteria. It is recommended to follow with Red light therapy to help restore normal cellular function, repair damaged/scarred tissue and promotes healthy skin.
ANTI AGING -
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) designed to re-hydrate the face, and increase collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement erasing years from the face. Ten treatments are recommended. Maintenance once a month or as needed can prolong the youthful appearance.
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) uses powerful Infrared and red light to stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue. Clients usually notice softening of scar tissue. They also notice flattening and widening of the scar. This is a normal sequence in scar reduction. With several more sessions the flat, wide scar will become thinner and remain flat. Some scars may appear to be resistant to this program (hypertrophic and/or keloid). If this is the case, a customized LIGHTWAVE treatment protocol and/or additional treatment options may need to be considered.
FLACCID SKIN -
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) that focuses on skin retraction by increasing circulation and bringing nutrition to damaged tissue. This program is particularly effective over the abdomen, neck and upper chest. Treatments should be applied twice per week and may require between ten – fifteen treatments.
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) intended to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up, and chemical reactions from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This process normalizes the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin, the thickness of the skin and the age of the client. Severe conditions such as Melasma may be best treated with a combination therapy of topical ointments such as hydroquinone and/or IPL and/or laser followed by LIGHTWAVE Therapy.
PREVENTATIVE CARE -
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) is designed to increase blood circulation and bring more nutrients to the skins surface which helps to keep the skin from breaking down. It also helps to normalize dry or oily skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) specifically designed to address inflammation associated with trauma and/or an allergic reaction that causes discomfort with a focus on clients who experience persistent problems such as joint and muscle discomfort. It is also used within 72 hours of any traumatic event including post-surgical interventions to reduce scarring and encourage normal tissue formation.
MILD TO MODERATE ACNE (BLUE / RED COMBO) -
LED light Therapy session (Red and/or Blue Light) designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce the P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. 15 minutes of Blue light first enters the sebaceous glands and singlet oxygen is created. Singlet oxygen then in turn kills the bacteria. Next, the client is exposed to 15 minutes of red light. This acne treatment aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring.

WHY TOPICAL LIGHT INFUSION (TLI)
opical Light Infusion is the only light based facial infusion technology available that safely and effectively addresses a variety of cosmetic concerns and is far superior to other infusion technologies currently available. Unlike traditional LED light therapy, TLI’s active facial infusion systems are intended to combine colors of light and photo energy with topicals to directly affect the tissue being treated. TLI uses specific doses of visible light energy to propel photon energy into various layers of the skin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
TLi treatments are safe, simple and easy. The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual TLi treatment to take up 30 minutes and allow for an additional 20 minutes for pre and post care. Its so simple and fast that many patients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work. However, the relaxing, euphoric effect usually last throughout the day.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A LIGHT THERAPY APPOINTMENT?
During your initial LLT appointment, a knowledgeable LLT trained technician will take before pictures, conduct an interview and complete a physical evaluation of your skin to get a clear picture of your treatment priorities. Your technician will then choose the appropriate LLT protocol(s) to address your areas of concern. The actual LLT treatment will begin by properly preparing the skin with specific ABI Dermaceuticals. These concentrated topicals help clear away the outermost layer of the skin so that the appropriate amount of photo energy can be properly absorbed.Next, the skin is exposed to specific wavelengths of light that will stimulate the cellular renewal process and begin the reparative process. Finally, ABI’s Power Pure topicals will be applied to the surface of the skin to start rebuilding, replenishing and protecting the exposed skin cells.
ARE LIGHT THERAPY TREATMENTS SAFE?
LLT offers advanced cosmetic rejuvenation utilizing both Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, which has been determined by the FDA to be of non-significant risk and ABI Dermaceuticals Power Pure technology, which allow clients to experience the most effective formulations available. LIGHTWAVE treatments are completely non-invasive and do not produce any thermal damage or pain. Treatments times vary in duration depending on the needs of the individual client. However, treatments are generally perceived as pleasant and relaxing.
HOW IS LED LIGHT THERAPY DIFFERENT FROM LASER TREATMENT?
LED light therapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment using non invasive, non ablative Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared light treatment for anti aging skin care, facial wrinkles, acne treatment, body treatments and more. LED is a safer, more effective and affordable alternative to laser treatment. And Blue and Red light can both be used to activate PDT (photodynamic therapy).
WHO NEEDS AND CAN BENEFIT FROM LIGHT THERAPY?
As we all age, our skin loses some its ability to heal and reconstruct itself. Components such as collagen and elastin, necessary in maintaining the physical appearance and vitality of skin, decreases in production; scar tissue, toxins and waste build-up (acne, wrinkles, sunspots, hyper-pigmentation, etc.) increases the appearance of physical flaws.
WHAT DOES LIGHTWAVE REJUVENATION DO?
LLT stimulates collagen and elastin production and tissue repair which can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging and damage to skin and other bodily tissues. It does this by enacting cutting-edge protocols that activate the cellular renewal process, while restoring and protecting the surface of the skin, resulting in a significant and yet completely natural looking cosmetic enhancement. The effectiveness of using red and infrared light therapy to stimulate rejuvenation in damaged tissues has been documented in more than 2,500 research papers, and approximately 100 double blind studies. LIGHTWAVE is the first light therapy company to develop a complete and total inside and outside approach to skin; addressing skin care needs both inside the body on a cellular level and topically on the outside surface of the skin.
WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE NON-PRESCRIPTION ACNE TREATMENT AVAILABLE?
Acne treatment can be tricky, so many people with acne problems are turning to non-prescription LED light therapy for skin treatment. Through a combination of Blue light therapy (which can also be used to activate PDT) and Red light therapy, this protocol is the most sophisticated rejuvenation technology on the market today to treat acne skin conditions. Best of all, it’s natural, pain-free and affordable.
