Blue Light Therapy in Toronto
Blue light therapy is a pain-free treatment that uses non-thermal wavelengths to combat bacteria and repair and regenerate damaged cells. It’s particularly effective for treating patients with acne, scarring, sun damage, and age spots. It’s also a great option to help reduce inflammation, redness and swelling from surgical scars.Request an Appointment
How does blue light therapy work?
Unlike laser treatments, blue light therapy uses LEDs to emit energy that your skin cells can use to regrow and repair. Blue light therapy in Toronto is becoming increasingly popular, and at SkinSource we can guide you through every step of the process.
What conditions can blue light therapy treat?
Blue light therapy can improve skin texture and is most effective for the treatment of mild-severity skin disorders, including acne, sun spots, scarring, and enlarged oil glands. But it has also been shown to positively aid in the treatment of depression (by combatting seasonal light deprivation patterns) and skin cancer prevention (by removing precancerous lesions before they spread).
What to expect from blue light therapy in Toronto
Blue light therapy sessions take place in a darkened room and can last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the targeted skin surface. While the treatment itself shouldn’t cause any pain, it is common to experience some minor discomfort afterwards, particularly if topical creams or antibiotics are used in conjunction with treatment. However, these effects are temporary and should only be comparable to a mild sunburn.
Combining blue light therapy with other treatments
For highest-impact results, you can combine blue light therapy with other treatments such as Microdermabrasion, Botox, Dysport, and Dermal Fillers. If you’re interested, ask one of our aestheticians at SkinSource and we’ll help you decide on the best plan to reach your goals.
