NEW- Led Light Therapy at Sweet Saffron!

2022 is bringing in a new treatment here at Sweet Saffron.

After much research and personal trials I am extremely excited to introduce a new LED Light Therapy Machine. This treatment can be added onto your existing facial appointment or scheduled as a 12 pack session.

More on that below, but for now lets dive in!

What is LED Light Therapy?

Some time ago, LED technology was considered an auxiliary treatment of pain syndrome and used for wound healing. But later, it was scientifically proved that infrared LED light therapy possesses wonderful properties and its influence on human organisms just amazes me.

Among treating pain and healing wounds LED Light Therapy:

  • Stimulates collagen

  • Increases healing

  • Kills bacteria

  • Soothes & calms the skin

  • Balances pigmentation

  • Reduces redness

  • Treats acneic skin

  • Improves oxygen reach to cells

  • Improves lymph drainage

  • Treats sagging skin

  • Promotes tissues strength

  • Enhances cell energy & metabolism

  • Improves the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles

How does it work?

Just as plants absorb and transform sunlight into energy at the cellular level, human cells absorb therapeutic light as a source of energy. This is necessary to stimulate cell regeneration, rallying skin for collagen and elastin production. Rewarding us with faster tissue regeneration and optimized healing processes.

The LED therapy procedure takes between 20-30 minutes to complete, and there is minimum to no discomfort throughout the experience. Your skin gets warm due to the infrared light but no discomfort all!

I personal feel so relaxed under the warmth and feel extra pampered on cold rainy day under the light.

To get most favorable results, as with most skin treatments, no less than 8 sessions in intervals of 2 times per week is best. Session duration, intensity, and color of light can be determined day of treatment and can instantly be adjusted if needed.

The main reason why LED light therapy is so effective and can complete a wide range of functions is because it uses different lengths of light waves. AKA different colors.

Let's consider the different colors and lengths them in more detail.

Red - The longest of the visible light spectrum (penetrating 620-700 NM), red light is incredibly anti-aging. It helps to trigger the production of collagen and elastin, plumping the skin and minimizing wrinkle depth, in addition to stimulating ATP production which is what our cells eat for energy. It also is anti-inflammatory, promotes healing, lowers oxidative stress and can improve mood.

Amber - (penetrating 570-620 NM) This soothing blend of orange and yellow light is great for treating sensitivity and rosacea. It stimulates the lymphatic system, flushing waste to detoxifying the skin and increase cellular growth.

Blue - The shortest of wavelengths (penetrating 405-420 NM) is incredibly anti-microbial and ideal for treating acne, reaching just into the pores, blue light targets a specific bacteria neutralizing it and preventing its ability to form acne.

Infrared - Part of the invisible light spectrum, infrared has the longest wavelength (penetrating 700-1400 NM). It's anti-aging due to its ability to stimulate fibroblasts which create the proteins collagen and elastin. This allows it to penetrate our muscles, reducing inflammation and promoting muscle recovery, making it an amazing treatment for post workouts and chronic inflammation.
