LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is a painless, non-invasive skin treatment used for a wide range of dermatological conditions such as acne, aging, redness and inflammatory conditions of the skin. At Clinica Lase we use the advanced Australian made PhotonSmart machine, and the Lutronic Healite, two of the most powerful and effective LED light systems on the market today.
High-output, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are used at different wavelength settings depending on the specific concern. For example, in the case of acne treatment, the LED setting used will emit light only at the wavelength that skin bacteria is highly sensitive to, hence dramatically reducing the level of bacteria which reduces the development of further acne.
Alternative wavelength settings can also be used to generate photomodulation, a process in which specific light energy triggers the skin’s own cellular activity, aiding overall rejuvenation. LED Light Therapy is not only effective but is one of the safest and most affordable ways to achieve more even, younger-looking skin.
LED or light therapy is a non-invasive procedure that is used to treat various skin conditions or concerns such as skin inflammation, eczema, acne, wound and anti-aging as well as for post treatment to speed up the healing process and enhance the treatment result.

Yes. Professional-grade LED light therapy is not only effective but is one of the safest and most affordable ways to achieve a healthier, brighter skin.
LED light therapy can treat a multitude of skin conditions including acne, rosacea, inflammatory conditions and overall skin health and rejuvenation.
Clinica Lase offers LED light therapy treatments at three different wavelengths (or colours), including:
830nm: Infrared light therapy - this travels deeper into the skin, aiming to heal inflammation and creating a boost of cells to stimulate the skin's natural processes.
415nm: Blue light therapy - this light targets the bacteria within the skin responsible for acne and breakouts to reduce the development of further acne.
633nm: Red light therapy - used to stimulate the mitochondria, an organelle within the skin cell that helps the cells function at optimal levels.
Unfortunately, clients with any light sensitivities or epilepsy should not use LED. LED light therapy is not suitable for those within their 1st trimester of pregnancy, however, anyone past the 1st trimester can use LED.
For the LED light to penetrate effectively the skin should be clean with no products during LED therapy. Post treatment cosmeceutical healing serum and sunscreens are applied.
Yes. For all our new clients, we always do consultations as it is the best way for our clinicians to understand your skin and help you with your concerns. Although LED therapy is great for everyone, education about what is best for your skin is also something we pride ourselves highly for, our highly trained clinicians always want to ensure the best treatments for you and LED light therapy is the perfect combination with any of our other treatments, therefore to get the most out of your experience with us we recommend a thorough consultation.
LED light therapy treatments are non-invasive with low risk of side-effects and hence there is little in the way of pre-treatment requirements. However, the skin on the face and neck to be treated should be free from infection and any open wounds or sores.
If you are experiencing any such skin condition please advise your clinician prior to any treatment. LED light therapy is often conducted immediately following alternative treatments such as skin needling, cosmetic injectables and chemical peels to both enhance the results and/or reduce swelling and redness.
Your clinician will assess your skin and discuss your requirements and concerns in order to deduce the most appropriate LED settings. Your face will then be cleaned and prepped before the LED machine is lowered to just above the face. The treatment is painless and will last for approximately 15-30 minutes during which you can simply lie back and relax.
Yes, LED light therapy is safe. Whilst the risks involved with LED treatments are low, we pride ourselves on conducting thorough consultations and insist on using only the very best equipment. At Clinica Lase, you can be sure that your safety is our first priority. If you have any concerns, please mention them to your clinician during your consultation.
Due to the non-invasive nature of the treatment, there is very low risk of side effects and hence there are no post treatment requirements. If, however, the treatment was conducted immediately after another treatment such as a chemical peel, microneedling or cosmetic injectables, then the normal after-care instructions for those treatments must still be followed.
Our LED light therapy treatments start at just $99. Please contact us today to speak with a clinician and schedule an appointment at our Melbourne or Ballarat location.
