LED/DermaKinetics Light Therapy: LED is a painless, even relaxing skin-care treatment that promotes healthy skin cells. Our LightWave machine and Dermakinetics protocol stimulates collagen and elastins and repairs bodily tissues, increase the removal of extra fluid and toxins from the skin, increase the macrophages, (scavenger cells), increase lymphatic drainage and increase blood flow to the surface of the skin; all of which can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging. The way that this is accomplished is with cutting edge technology and protocols that activate the cellular renewal process, while renewing and protecting the surface of the skin.
Our LED machine boasts over 4,080 LED’s (light emitting diodes). Many of the hand held or tabletop machines that are used in spas and salons average between 15 and 200 diodes. The strength of our machine and the amount of area that we can cover in one convenient session is unparalleled. Depending on what you are being treated for, a normal full length session should last between 15 to 25 minutes to be effective; so be aware of places that offer LED as add ons to facials and other services that only take 45 to 60 minutes a session. If they give you a full service facial, there will not be enough time to give you an LED treatment that will cover your whole face or stomach or whatever body part that you’d like worked on within a 50 minute facial. If you are not covering your whole face for at least 15 minutes without moving the apparatus, you will not being doing your skin much benefit!
Dermakinetics is a patented procedure that actually uses a pulsed light to push specialized medical grade cosmeceuticals into the deeper layers of your skin without making any punctures to the skin as a pathway. There is no chance of infections, no pain and no down time! This process allows products that are high performance, yet as natural as possible, to work their magic deeper into your skin, which is pretty amazing, as about 95% of the topical enhancers that you pay for sit on the top of your skin and don’t penetrate deeply into your skin layers! (Why pay for them if they don’t go into your skin)? ABI is the product line that we use for our home care regime products to enhance the efficacy of the light treatments that you are receiving. We believe in team work. We will use clinical dosages and techniques to give you the absolute best results that technology has to offer, in turn you should comply and actively participate in your anti-aging or skin care treatment plan, by drinking tons of water, and taking care of your skin with home strength products!
Together we will make an awesome team. Professional LED machines can also minimize fine lines and reduce wrinkles, treat sun-damage, hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, acne and scars, and reduce redness after more aggressive IPL or laser treatments. Although some folks will see some immediate results, (especially with Dermakinetics), most results will be very evident by treatment 6. The recommended professional LED protocol for long lasting results is 10-12 treatments spread over a few month period of time, followed by a maintenance treatment every month or two. LED treatments are painless, cool and relaxing, and unlike IPL or laser treatments, it doesn’t generate any heat, so it carries no risk of burning.
We do charge a cancellation and No Show fee. Please refer to our Spa Etiquette & Guidelines page to read full details.
