Micro Needling and LED Phototherapy—Are They Safe?

We are all fond of taking care of our body and our skin. In fact, if we simply have all the time and money in the world, we wouldn’t mind getting facials every day.

However, even if we have all the time and money in the world, there are certain body and skin conditions that cannot be treated with mere facials. There are circumstances that require non-invasive treatments like LED phototherapy and Medical microneedling, which is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy.

Micro Needling

But what is a medical micro needling? This is a device, composed of a dozen needles. When the needles are placed onto the skin they cause micro trauma, which forces the skin to heal itself and produce a tremendous amount of collagen in the process. If you’re worried about the pain, then, don’t be. Prior to the procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the area so you’ll experience no discomfort. The needles work quickly to help infuse growth factors and essential nutrients, based on your treatment regimen. This results to tightened, more radiant skin, reduced wrinkles, smaller pores, decrease of sun spots and overall youthful glow.

Here at Body Contour, we use Dermapen– a groundbreaking skin rejuvenation therapy system, which features unique vertical micro needling technology and is proven more effective when compared to other treatments such as lasers, microdermabrasion, and skin peels. This is one of your best options when you want to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks and scarring from acne FAST. It’s also the best solution to improve your skin texture and skin color. Medical micro needling can be used not just on facial skin but also on all skin of the body including arm, leg, and neck.

Medical micro needling is completely safe as long as it is performed by a certified specialist. The treatment can be performed on all most skin colors and skin types. Risks of post hyper-pigmentation are minimal and infections are extremely rare since tiny prickling channels are closed within less than one hour. Are they any side effects? This procedure, which has been taken advantage of by hundred of thousands of people worldwide, doesn’t result to any negative side effects.

Medical Micro Needling offers the following benefits:

• Improves the appearance of stretch marks and acne scars
• Reduces the size of pores
• Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
• Stimulates tissue regeneration and improves skin texture
• Stimulates collagen production and circulation
• Can be performed on all areas of the face, scalp, and body

LED Phototherapy

Led Phototherapy, which is used for a multitude of skin conditions, is a non-thermal and non-invasive therapy that utilizes different light spectrum wavelengths to destroy bacteria and stimulate growth of new skin cells to induce changes in the skin. Depending on the skin condition that is being targeted, different wavelengths of LED, which stands for Light Emitting Diode, can be used. Each penetrates a different depth and will result in different effect within the skin. This treatment is recommended for various skin conditions ranging from acne, helping a wound from pre and post operations heal, as well as ageing skin. Unlike other treatments LED phototherapy requires no down time and is quite relaxing actually.
During the procedure, blue light is typically used to treat acne by targeting the bacteria that causes it through the production of oxygen free radical. Red light, on the other hand, is used for cell regeneration for the purpose of skin healing and rejuvenation. This can also be used to help one’s skin heal fast after receiving a skin peel, medical microneedling, laser treatment or surgical procedure.
LED Phototherapy is safe, extremely effective, and requires no recovery period. There is no side effects associated with this procedure.
Benefits of Led Phototherapy:
• Helps reverse the signs of aging
• Accelerates healing
• Clears acne and blemishes
• Treat diseased, injured, and damaged skin cells
