Fight Ageing With Yellow LED Light Therapy

Get that ‘I just got back from a holiday’ glowing skin with a professional Yellow LED Light Therapy treatment.


How Does Yellow LED Light Therapy Work?

LED has a long history and has been used in the medical field for decades. Yellow LED Light Therapy, using wavelengths between 570-620 nm (nanometres) is the deepest penetrating medical grade treatment that we offer in-clinic. LED targets the light receptors in our cells which then converts the light into energy. The cells are then fuelled with all the energy that they need to be able to function at optimal ability.


What To Expect During A LED Light Therapy Session

Here’s what you can expect during the actual Yellow LED Light Therapy session itself:

  1. Your Doctor will need you to wear protective goggles so your eyes will be shielded completely from the bright LED light.

  2. They will gently cleanse your skin to remove any remaining traces of makeup, oil, or skincare products. This ensures the light properly penetrates your skin’s deepest layers.

  3. Sometimes, the Doctor may also apply a specialised serum to enhance the results. A hydrating or brightening serum might be used to boost moisture or target discolouration respectively.

  4. The LED light device, whether a panel or a mask, will be carefully positioned close to your skin. The distance and angle may be slightly adjusted to ensure even light exposure.

  5. A single Yellow LED Light Therapy session takes between 20-30 minutes. You might feel a slight warmth on your skin, but it’s generally painless and comfortable. Most people even doze off during the procedure.

  6. After completing the light therapy, your skincare provider might apply a calming moisturiser to soothe your skin, followed by sunscreen.


Yellow LED Light Therapy: What Are Its Benefits And Is It Safe?

LED is a safe skin treatment that is suitable for all skin types, colours and conditions.


Non-Invasive And Pain-Free

 Yellow LED Light Therapy doesn’t damage the skin’s surface. Because it’s targeted, it’s able to deliver specific light wavelengths without generating heat. This makes for a comfortable experience.


No UV Exposure

Harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays aren’t present in Yellow LED Light Therapy, making it a safer alternative than other light therapies.


Minimal Side Effects

Side effects are rare with Yellow LED Light Therapy. Some people feel a temporary redness or a slight sensitivity immediately after the procedure but these go away quickly on their own.


Suitable For Sensitive Skin

The anti-inflammatory properties present in Yellow LED Light Therapy makes it a fantastic option for those with sensitive skin. It reduces redness, calms irritation, and strengthens the skin’s natural barrier. It’s much less reactive to external triggers and promotes overall skin health.


Perfect as a stand-alone treatment, our Yellow LED Light Therapy treatment will leave your skin feeling energised and radiant.

The LED Light Therapy also triggers the lymphatic system, improving the removal of toxins from the treated area.

Yellow Light Therapy is used to increase wound healing, collagen induction, skin hydration and the overall health of the skin.

LED has amazing anti-ageing powers.


Where Else Is Yellow LED Light Therapy Used For?

This treatment is great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone, reducing pores size, and brightening the skin. It can also assist with:

  • Breakouts - the healing light works as a preventative measure for future breakouts by reducing inflammation and targeting the bacteria known as P. acnes that contribute to acne formation.
  • Rosacea/redness - Yellow LED Light Therapy calms inflammation and reduces redness. It helps strengthen capillary walls, reducing the appearance of flushing and broken blood vessels.
  • Dryness – Yellow LED Light Therapy increases the skin’s ability to hold hyaluronic acid and water. In turn this increases the skin’s hydration and makes your in-clinic and at home skincare go further. Basically, it helps to amplify your current skincare.
  • Recent acne scarring – this treatment can assist with the healing of current wounds but would not be used for older acne scarring, Skin Needling is best for that. Yellow LED Light encourages the production of new collagen and elastin, promoting a smoother, more even skin texture.


How Does Yellow LED Light Compare To Other LED Therapies?

LED Light Therapy in general uses various light wavelengths corresponding to a specific colour. These colours penetrate the skin to varying depths and offer unique benefits.

Yellow vs Red: While Yellow LED focuses on the skin’s mid-layers, red light penetrates even deeper, typically between 630 - 700, reaching approximately 2-3 mm into the skin.

Yellow vs Blue: Blue LED light has a shorter wavelength, typically between 400-470 nm,  targeting the skin's surface and having antibacterial properties. This makes it ideal for treating active acne breakouts and preventing future blemishes.

Yellow vs Near-Infrared (NIR): NIR light penetrates the deepest of all the LED colours, with wavelengths usually in the 700-1200 nm range. It promotes wound healing, tissue repair, and even offers relief for muscle and joint pain.
