Light-emitting diodes (LED)
Light-emitting diodes (LED) uses different wavelengths of light to target skin issues. There are three main wavelengths that are clinically proven to have the most therapeutic benefit for the skin. These are Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near infrared 830nm. Some devices with have frequencies outside these and still have some effect but won’t be as therapeutic as these frequencies. This means a home device will require many more treatment sessions to have an effect.

- LED add on to existing treatment (15 mins) £30.00
