HOW IT WORKS

Unlike intense pulsed light (IPL) and lasers that rely on thermal injury to prompt the skin to repair itself, LED light therapy delivers light emitting diodes (LED), which do not produce any heat. The device delivers LED in precise wavelengths over the skin to stimulate naturally occurring regeneration and repair processes.  

At Artisan, we offer two LED light therapy treatments, Healite II™ and Omnilux Medical™ LED which are both used to treat the face, neck and décolletage.

RESULTS

Results occur gradually with an initial series of treatments recommended to achieve optimal results that last up to one month. Regular treatments will maintain results. 

 

TREATMENT PREPARATION

Before your treatment: 

  • Cease taking photosensitising medications or products that can cause photosensitivity 
  • Avoid taking supplements including St John’s-wort which can cause photosensitivity 

Advise your clinician if you: 

  • Have an autoimmune disease 
  • Are taking or have taken Roaccutane within the past six months

Note: do not cease prescribed medications without first consulting with your general practitioner. There must be a space of 48 hours between treatments.  

WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, our clinician will consult with you to assess your suitability for LED light therapy and discuss any concerns or questions you may have. 

The treatment may involve a gentle exfoliant being applied to your skin before the LED device is placed over the treatment area. The process is comfortable with many clients finding it relaxing and similar to lying on a beach.  

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE

Anyone who: 

  • Is pregnant or trying to conceive  
  • Has had platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment within the past 24 hours
  • Has porphyria
  • Has photosensitive eczema

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

  • Temporary eye adjustment to colour after certain light waves, which is usually resolved within five minutes 
  • Slight pinkness at the treatment area, which is usually resolved within 30 minutes 
  • Mild erythema, which is usually resolved within less than two hours 
POST-TREATMENT CARE

LED light therapy is a safe and effective treatment that requires no down time. You can carry out your day-to-day activities and skincare routine immediately.  

 

 

FOLLOW-UP AND NEXT STEPS

To achieve the best results, an initial course of eight treatments every two days over four weeks is recommended.  

Your next treatment is due within one week.  

Your health and well-being is our priority. If you are concerned about any aspect of your treatment, or if you become unwell – contact your clinic immediately.
