Is LED Phototherapy safe?
LED Phototherapy is a heat free treatment that does not contain harmful UV wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue or create photosensitivity. It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, including darker skins and the most sensitive skin conditions.
What does LED Phototherapy feel like?
LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive and pain free treatment that promotes a feeling relaxation and wellbeing whilst rejuvenating the skin. Exposure to the light can increase serotonin levels which in turn help to relive stress, tension and headaches. Any feeling of ‘heat’ is most often due to the stimulation of blood circulation.
I am taking medication from the doctor – can I still have LED Phototherapy?
There are certain circumstances in which phototherapy may prove to be unsuitable. Certain medications may causes photosensitivity and specific conditions may be triggered by light. For your safety and comfort, it is imperative that any medication illness, condition or other treatment that you may be undergoing are fully disclosed during your consultation with the aesthetic therapist.
Will LED Phototherapy give me a tan?
No. LED Phototherapy does not contain the harmful UV rays that stimulate the melanin in the skin to produce a ‘sun tan’ effect. However, LED’s stimulate hydration and blood circulation and will instantly give your skin a healthy and radiant glow.
Can I go in the sun after LED Phototherapy?
Yes. As LED Phototherapy does not create photosensitivity, it is a safe treatment directly pre and post sun exposure. In fact, it is particularly beneficial at this time to strengthen and replenish the skin and repair damage caused by UV exposure
Does LED Phototherapy work equally on all skin types?
The treatment times have been calculated to ensure optimum results. Darker skins may require longer exposure times to have the same level of effectiveness.

Yes. The treatment should be followed by the application of suitable skin care products including a sunscreen. Makeup can then be applied.
