LED Light Therapy and Microcurrent


I sometimes make the mistake of assuming that people constantly research things like I do

(” hello Google, what took you so long to get here? I could have used you in high school!” )

But it only takes publishing a Facebook post to realize how quickly people draw conclusions without knowledge, or don’t bother taking the time to research things they don’t understand.

Here is a little insight into two of the advanced treatments we offer as part of an effective, healthy skin care program:

LED Light Therapy- based on the light color spectrum, each LED wavelength (COLOR) of light provides unique therapeutic benefits in the field of anti-aging as well as medical conditions.  NASA has conducted studies finding remarkable benefits of LED on cell energy, wound healing and relief for cancer patients.  Anti aging benefits of LED light therapy was discovered while treating skin cancer.  (This does not change the color of your skin – this is UV free.)  LED light therapy is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and estheticians alike.

LED light is a source of energy for cells.

  • Non – invasive
  • Immediate and cumulative results
  • Stimulates cellular function
  • Offers benefits of sunlight without the damaging effects of UV rays
  • Wavelength specific light (colors) can be used to target specific conditions

Color wavelengths penetrate the skin at varying depths. (A nanometer is a unit of measure equal to one billionth of a meter.)

  •  Blue penetrates to a depth of 464nm > destroys P. acnes bacteria.
  •  Amber penetrates to 605nm > builds collagen and elastin and other proteins.
  • Red and Infrared penetrates to 630-660nm and 855nm >  reduces inflammation , accelerate healing, promotes circulation and encourages greater product absorption.

These wavelengths work together in our Lightstim Professional 2 Panel Light to deliver professional grade results.  LightStim also offers hand held models for home use which can be ordered at the spa.

As part of a facial treatment, a specialized photo masque and post photo serum are used to optimize the results of your treatment.  You can use LED therapy in stand alone treatments (20 mins) ;  treatments with neck/shoulder, hand/arm, lower leg/foot massage (30 mins,) or as part of our Custom HD facial.  Please visit our website for a menu of options.

MICROCURRENT  –  MC is a form of electrotherapy which delivers low-level electric current to the body.  The body perceives this low-level stimulus as natural and therapeutic.  It is completely natural, safe and non-invasive.

As we adopt healthy choices by adding exercise to our daily activities, we need to be mindful of the thirty-two individual muscles in our face.  Ask yourself, why not exercise those muscles?  

It will allow your facial muscles to become more toned, your skin to be rejuvenated and conditions such as acne or rosacea to be healed.

Microcurrent is the most holistic and effective approach to a rejuvenating facial treatment.  Treatments have a cumulative effect and are able to provide remarkable results that can challenge both dermal fillers and laser technology.

Did you know the human body relies on a continuous flow of electricity in order to function?

Every electric field has an accompanying magnetic field;  therefore every form of electrical energy is “electromagnetic.”  Electromagnetic fields that govern biological cells are called bio-electromagnetic energy.

What can affect our bio-electromagnetic field?

  • Aging causes bio-electromagnetic fields to diminish in strength and propagation channels become blocked.
  • Injury disrupts the flow of this magnetic current

What makes the TAMA Blue Onyx devices different?

TAMA research has introduced the unique multi-mode waveform that taps into this innate energy source providing all the benefits of traditional micro current and more.

What is the TAMA doing?

As the low-level bio-electromagnetic field works on the skin surface, the internal fields (skin layers, muscle tissue) become re-aligned according to the applied waveform.

White mode drains blockages, toxins,  and promotes healing of deep lines,

Green mode builds collagen, elastin, volume and builds skin integrity.

Purple mode provides muscle education.

Lower currents = healing / Higher currents= lifting. “non surgical face lift”

Benefits

  • Diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve circulation
  • Clear up/reduce acne
  • Improve muscle tone in face, neck and hands
  • Lift jowls and eyebrows
  • Calm rosacea
  • Drain lymphatic nodes
  • Treat sun damage
  • Improve skin pigmentation
  • Facilitate product penetration
  • Tighten large pores, resulting in smoother and firmer skin
  • Revitalize the skin
  • Improve elasticity.

(Beyond skincare, TAMA MC technology is being used for relief of conditions such as TMJ, Bells Palsy and Tendonitis.)

Using both LED Light therapy and Microcurrent together make our Custom HD facial the best of the best.  Combined with our superior organic and medical grade products, you won’t find a more beneficial, holistic approach to your skin care treatment.

As always, call or stop by the spa to talk more about your skin care needs and goals.  We would love to see you!

 

Take good care of yourself ~
