LED (light-emitting diode) is a well-recognised cosmetic and medical treatment that delivers a dosage of specific narrowband light to targeted areas of the skin to promote healing, stimulate collagen production and to treat a variety of conditions including acne and rosacea.

At Cosmetic Medicine Centre we offer Xen LED light therapy.  Xen LED utlilises evidence-based, medically-optimised red, blue and near infrared wavelengths which have the ability to be preferentially absorbed by target cells and tissues for overall skin enhancement.

Key benefits of Xen LED

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Skin regeneration
  • Reduction of skin inflammation
  • Improved healing times, for example, after some laser treatments or surgery
  • Enhanced skin texture and tone
  • Improved collagen and elastin levels in the skin
  • Reduced pore size
  • Clearing acne and breakouts
  • Calming redness and rosacea
How does Xen LED light therapy work?
Also known as photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), it is a non-thermal and pain-free energy exchange between the light energy and receptors in the cells that can absorb the light energy. Better cellular energy helps offset the ageing process brought on by cell degeneration.

Blue LED is primarily used in the treatment of acne. Blue LED works to fight off and destroy P.acnes, the  bacteria that causes acne in the skin . It is also proven effective in reducing pore size and balancing sebum production.

The red wavelength is the colour of choice for general skin rejuvenation.  Red LED accelerates cell renewal and repair by stimulating fibroblasts to form collagen and elastin.  It is clinically proven to increase the body’s natural form of cellular energy (ATP) which kickstarts cells to regenerate faster.

The NIR (near infrared) wavelength has even more photobiostimulatory effects. Deep tissue penetration of NIR light stimulates a photochemical reaction within cells that triggers collagen formation and produces systemic healing effects. The process increases blood flow and oxygenation while improving mitochondrial function, energy production, and cell regeneration.

Are LED treatments safe?
LED does not contain ultraviolet rays so does not contain the potentially cancer-causing light present in sunlight.
What happens during the treatment session?
Before starting the treatment, any makeup or sunscreen will be washed off and contact lenses removed. We will provide you with safety eyewear that you must wear during the treatment session.

The treatment will take up to 20 minutes.  There is minimal discomfort during the treatment, with many patients dozing off to sleep!

Is there any downtime?
No, you can resume normal daily activities immediately following your treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
During your consultation, your clinician will advise you on how many treatments are required according to your specific needs and concerns. A typical course of treatments involves 2 sessions a week, over a 4-week period.
Can I combine LED with other treatments?
Yes, LED light therapy is often combined with other treatments.
How much does LED cost?
Xen LED light therapy costs $75 for 1 session, or $500 for a package of 8.
