Advanced LED Light Therapy
Blue light therapy has rapidly become a necessary treatment option for skin care. This therapy helps deal with skin issues such as blemishes, discoloration and scarring. Recent clinical data supported by the AAD and other organizations has validated that blue light, with adjunctive red light, is a viable alternative to treatments that have been ineffective, painful and have had significant side effects.
Lightwave’s patented Red, Infrared, & Blue Light therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort. Our innovative esthetic treatments help counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne and acne scarring. LIGHTWAVE provides noticeable results, often in a couple of treatments, without the high cost and downtime of other more expensive treatment options.
What to Expect:
Lightwave is safe, simple and easy. The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual Lightwave treatment to take up to 30 minutes and allow an additional 20 minutes for pre and post care. It’s so simple and fast that many patients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work. However, the relaxing, euphoric effect usually lasts throughout the day.

After the Treatment
Each individual responds differently; some notice changes much more quickly than others. The following principles are generalities; specific results will vary from client to client based on the client’s needs and lifestyle. The following protocols have been designed to address the most common requested treatments. Our treatments range between 8-30 minutes in duration.
Lightwave LED Treatment
Anti Aging Treatment
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) designed to re-hydrate the face and increase collagen and elastin formation. This results in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement erasing years from the face. Ten treatments are recommended along with maintenance once a month or as needed. This plan can prolong the youthful appearance of your skin.
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) intended to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up and chemical reactions as well as from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This process normalizes the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin, the thickness of the skin and the age of the client. Severe conditions such as Melasma may be best treated with a combination therapy of topical ointments such as hydroquinone, and/or IPL and/or laser followed by Lightwave Therapy.
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) uses powerful Infrared and red light to stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue. Clients usually notice softening of scar tissue. They also notice flattening and widening of the scar. This is a normal sequence in scar reduction. With several more sessions the flat, wide scar will become thinner and remain flat. Some scars may appear to be resistant to this program (hypertrophic and/or keloid). If this is the case, a customized Lightwave treatment protocol and/or additional treatment options may need to be considered.
Preventative Care Treatment
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) is designed to increase blood circulation and bring more nutrients to the skin’s surface which helps to keep the skin from breaking down. It also helps to normalize dry or oily skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.
Flaccid Skin Treatment
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) that focuses on skin retraction by increasing circulation and bringing nutrition to damaged tissue. This program is particularly effective over the abdomen, neck and upper chest. Treatments should be applied twice per week and may require between 10 – 15 treatments.
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) specifically designed to address inflammation associated with trauma and/or an allergic reaction that causes discomfort with a focus on clients who experience persistent problems such as joint and muscle discomfort. It is also used within 72 hours of any traumatic event including post-surgical interventions to reduce scarring and encourage normal tissue formation.
This program is designed to allow the skin care specialist to provide a protocol specific for a treatment condition that has not been addressed by one of the other pre-set protocols and has been shown to benefit from intense red and infrared light. It utilizes 15 minutes of continuous narrowband red light followed by 15 minutes of continuous narrowband IR light.
Infrared (IR) light (wavelength 800nm – 900nm) energy penetrates tissue at a greater depth than the blue and red light. Approximately 50% penetrates to 8cm and decreases to less than 1% at 20cm (NASA study). Infrared energy is known to heat tissue and its effects are well documented for therapeutic pain management. For cosmetic applications, IR stimulates the NaK+ pump which increases cell membrane permeability; facilitating equilibrium of cellular pH, while increasing nutritional absorption and elimination of waste byproducts.
Red Light Only Treatment
Red light (wavelength 625nm-660nm) penetrates human tissue superficially, with approximately 80% of the energy being absorbed in the first 2cm. Red light energy has a significant effect on mitochondrial stimulation, which increases the production of ATP and in turn boosts fibroblast activity. This leads to an increase in cellular turnover, superficial circulation and an anti-inflammatory emission.
Blue/Red Mild to Moderate Acne Treatment
Lightwave proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and Blue Light) designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce the P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. Fifteen minutes of Blue light first enters the sebaceous glands and singlet oxygen is created. Singlet oxygen then in turn kills the bacteria. Next, the client is exposed to 15 minutes of red light. This acne treatment aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring.
Blue Light Only Treatment
Blue light (wavelength 405nm-450nm) provides a very superficial penetration even with a high-intensity narrowband light source. It is primarily absorbed by the epidermis of the skin. Once it is absorbed, blue light targets P. acnes by stimulating porphyrins which then produce intracellular singlet oxygen and thus inducing bacterial death.
Topical Light Infusion Treatment
Wrinkle Repair Treatment: (2 Step Topical)
This treatment uses a combination of proven powerful peptides, hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and collagen to re-hydrate the face. It increases collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles therefore decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone. There is a overall improvement erasing years from the face. Eight treatments are recommended. Maintenance once every 6 weeks or as needed can prolong this youthful appearance.
Brightening Treatment: (2 Step Topical)
This treatment utilizes kojic acid and vitamin C to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up, chemical reactions from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This Topical Light Infusion (TLi ) process helps to normalize the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin the age of the client but most individuals respond well to 8-10 treatments.
Post Recovery Treatment: (2 Step Topical)
This treatment is intended to boost skin remodeling using a potent vitamin C serum and GHK copper peptide cream. This serum and cream based combination will help soften, smooth, fade and reduce the appearance of scars including burn scars, surgery scars, acne scars and plastic surgery scars. Please note this setting is usually most effective with new scars.
