Professional Talks Special Edition - How To Give Your Acne The Boot!

Friday, July 15, 2016 - 6:09am

Acne and its scars leave a telltale sign of heartbreak. Anyone who has ever dealt with this insidious disease knows it wreaks havoc on self-esteem.

And the PIH scars (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation)? They are just an unpleasant reminder of painful days. Whether you’re dealing with an active case of acne or you want to be rid of the acne scars, consider LED therapy.

This Nobel Prize winning therapy has been acclaimed and well-documented for aging, healing wounds, improving skin diseases such as eczema, and treating unreachable brain tumors. The benefits of using LED wavelengths is that light absorbing molecules use the various wavelengths as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example the various wavelengths and the red, blue and infrared lights reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.


Born from the initial work at NASA, LED was used in plant growth experiments. It was found to speed up the healing of astronaut injuries in outer space. LED light therapy has been scientifically proven by over 300 clinical trials to re-regulate cellular function in the treatment of many common conditions, restoring the body's natural ability to heal itself. Using LED light to "reenergize" cellular function in a non-invasive manner allows the body to maintain vitality as nature intended.


Skin that has been exposed to LED grows new skin 150-200% faster.


Imagine what it can do for those old acne scars! And for acne sufferers, the LED blue light kills the P. acnes bacteria, the bacterium that causes acne.

But get this:

  • The treatment is actually relaxing
  • There is no recovery time
  • There are no harsh chemicals
  • Kills P. Acne Bacteria: 90% of the contributing factors to acne
  • Clears existing breakouts
  • Restores skin’s healthy appearance


An incredibly safe treatment, LED also works to reverse sun damage, large pores and fine lines and wrinkles. 

  • Increases collagen and elastin production
  • Reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin’s firmness and resilience
  • Stimulates ATP (cellular energy)



A revolution in skin care, Why not take advantage of it?
