WHAT IS LED THERAPY?

applying proven wavelengths (660nm red) of light to tissue for therapeutic effects. much like plants take in sunlight for energy, the light (photons) are absorbed by the mitochondria of the cells. this stimulates energy (ATP) to power cellular functions: repair, regeneration, restoration. no pain and no sun damage. great for all skin types, including sensitive and rosacea. 

benefits include: 
collagen synthesis, wound healing, blood circulation, reduces inflammation & scarring, reduces wrinkles & lines, kills bacteria, and tightens & firms skin, cellular turnover.

*this light is extremely & immensely bright. it feels like laying in a tanning bed (w/out the consequences of course). your eyes will adjust but it will take time, and it will feel strange initially. goggles are provided. however, you are welcome to come in for a test run, to see if you can handle the brightness.
