LED Light Therapy is suitable for all skin types. It stimulates skin cell renewal, giving your skin a healthy and youthful glow. LED (Light Emitting Diode) boosts collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production, reducing your fine lines and wrinkles while making your skin feel smoother, firmer, healthier and plumper.
Our medical-grade phototherapy LED device is suitable for everyone. It is painless and there is no downtime! Our amazing machine is proudly Australian made.
LED lights enhance the results and benefits of all skin treatments. Dr. Vicky Prokopiou and her experienced team highly recommend having LED Light Therapy as a standalone treatment or with any skin + care treatments. The various LED lights promote skin healing, reduce inflammation and calm your skin. Why not rest and relax for even longer while your skin soaks up the rejuvenating LED lights!
