LED Treatment

A Rejuvenating Treatment for Acne, Sun Damage, and Facial Lines for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, Main Line, and Beyond

Short for light emitting diode, an LED emits light at specific wavelengths: Blue (415 nm), Red (633 nm), and Near Infrared (830 nm). These specific wave lengths are used to treat a wide range of dermatological conditions including acne, sun damage, and skin rejuvenation. By harnessing this energy, an LED treatment at our Philadelphia area practices (Bryn Mawr and Newtown Square, PA) can be directed to specific areas of skin to stimulate its healing and regenerative processes.

At Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa, the two most frequently used lights are Blue and Red. Each spectrum of light has specific effects:

  • blue light destroys acne-causing bacteria
  • red light reduces inflammation and stimulates collagen production

Near Infrared can be used to promote healing and rejuvenation and is also used in other medical specialties to treat pain.

While LED skin treatments are all-round skin rejuvenators, they are particularly well-suited to acne-prone and/or inflamed skin.

Other Skin-Rejuvenating Options

LED treatments can be used either alone, or in combination with peels, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments to achieve the best possible results. Our specialists will advise you on which treatments may be appropriate for you.
