What is LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to improve the skin. The therapy uses a combination of red light therapy and blue light therapy. Red LED light therapy is excellent for signs of aging, and blue LED light therapy helps with acne. Take a look at our LED light therapy before and after photos to see the many LED light therapy benefits for skin.
How Much Does LED Light Therapy Cost?
At OptimalSelf MD, we understand that you want to feel good about yourself, yet cost may be a primary consideration. We recommend that you schedule a consultation as a first step. Phone consultations are complimentary, and we charge a fee for an in-office consultation. As part of the consultation, we explain the price of your LED light therapy, and payment can be made by cash, check, and credit card. We also work with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients financing options.
Who is a Good Candidate for LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy does not emit ultraviolet light, such as what is found in sunlight, and it is considered safe for most skin types. If you have extra sensitive skin or use any medications or products that cause skin sensitivity, LED light therapy may not be a good option. This includes certain medications for acne treatment.
What Can I Expect During the LED Light Therapy Treatment?
A typical LED light treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes. A device is used to administer the LED light energy to your skin. In some cases, up to 10 treatments are needed.
How Long Will It Take Me to Recover from LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy recovery requires no downtime or special care for the treated area.
Can I Schedule a Consultation for LED Light Therapy?
OptimalSelf MD offers consultations so that you can speak with Dr. Shawn about the ways that you want to improve your skin. If you are interested in LED light therapy, we can schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation with him, or you can come to our office for the consultation for a fee.
