History of LED Light Therapy

LED Light Therapy was developed by NASA in the 1980’s, initially to aid in the growth of plants in space.  Also known as Low-Level Light Therapy and Phototherapy, it was soon discovered that the technology could be used to treat the skin to help with anti-aging and other skin conditions including, but not limited to:

  • wound healing
  • acne
  • tissue growth after injuries

The technology has been used widely by athletes for much quicker healing of injuries and by the US army to treat soldiers wounded in battle.

How does LED Light Therapy Work?

LED Light Therapy works using different wavelengths of light to treat specific conditions.  The technology, offered in-house by Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic, uses different combinations of red and blue light to stimulate the skin and promote healing, rejuvenating the skin and can achieve a more natural and vibrant skin tone.

What can LED Light Therapy do for you?

Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic, based in Birmingham, have adopted this technology to provide a range of services to our clients including

  • Anti-aging therapies
  • Acne treatments
  • Detoxifying your skin
  • Remedying pigmentation issues
  • For the treatment of Rosacea

LED Light Therapy is also known to reduce damage from exposure to the sun and can improve the appearance of scarring.

Treatments at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic

Here at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic we have fully trained technicians who administer the treatment in a safe and measured environment, using pain-free and proven techniques, which are specific to the problematic skin condition presented. 

The anti-aging LED Light Therapy treatment will stimulate the production of collagen, which the body naturally produces less of as we get older, in effect “filling” wrinkles and restoring cell function in the skin.

The treatment of acne using LED Light Therapy destroys the bacteria which produce the painful skin condition and therefore reduces the red and sore skin associated with this distressing condition.  

These LED Light Therapy treatments are available at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic close to Birmingham City Centre and staffed by qualified skin consultants who create bespoke and tailored treatment plans specifically for you.

There are many benefits to LED Light Therapy over traditional treatments, and at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic we use state of the art technology to provide pain-free, non-invasive treatments to activate your skin’s natural healing ability and restore your skin back to health.  LED Light Therapy at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic is proven and has an excellent safety record, it is suitable for all colours and different types of skin and does not cause burning as it contains no UV rays which are known to be harmful to our skin.  There is no recovery time needed and the treatment can be used on any part of the body including the face and neck.

The American Academy of Dermatology stated that LED Light Therapy (available at Virtue Hair and Skin Clinic in Birmingham) is a safe treatment which offers promising results in many skin conditions.
