In either scenario, if you’re patient and don’t expect miracles, the research is promising!

LED Light Therapy is completely harmless, pain free and effective. NASA uses LED therapy to treat cuts, scrapes and bruises after finding that it accelerates healing time. LED light is cool in temperature so it cannot burn or cause discomfort.
Results are typically seen after the first treatment, but most improvement is seen with subsequent visits. As more collagen becomes present in the skin with treatments, the skin becomes smoother, firmer and more radiant.
