Get A Treatment Who Can Do Both
As we graduate from our 20s, we are all eventually forced to reckon with our skin being classified as aging skin. This is especially troublesome considering many feel as if we are simply graduating from one intensive, time-consuming regimen to the next. If you had (or still have) troubled skin as a teen, you know dealing with acne always felt like an experiment in what combinations of products would work. And with aging skincare products, there is a safari of serums and extracts (snail secretion cream? Yikes.) that can be just as daunting to sort out. . As you might imagine, I was very pleased to find out that there is a simple, one-step treatment that tackles both aging and acne-prone skin.
Enter LED therapy. Originally developed by NASA for plant growing experiments, Navy SEALS pioneered its use on human tissues in the 90s. LED therapy was then employed to quickly heal wounds and regenerate damaged tissues, leading to its commercial adoption in medical aesthetics. Dermatologists discovered that blue LED light helps with acne trouble spots, reducing sebum overproduction and inflammation, and kills acne bacteria living and growing in pores. On a similar note, red LED light has been shown to promote collagen retention and production, which helps the skin retain moisture and elasticity, making it a great candidate for anti aging treatments.
Always after the best, Tabitha went in on a spa-grade LED light therapy device, which emits both blue and red light, letting us kill two birds with one stone. We love it for its simplicity; really, I cannot think of another spa treatment that simultaneously addresses both of the biggest complaints we hear about in skincare: acne and aging. Sacred Hour is the first neighborhood spa in Lakewood offering LED therapy, featured in the exclusive LUMAGLO Facial. Safe for most skin types, the Lumaglo facial is a dedicated anti-aging treatment but can be used for acne-prone skin as well. Wherever you are in your skincare journey, LED therapy can help you out. Stop in for some quality time with your skin. We can’t wait to hear what you think.
