As we get older, we tend to focus on the visible signs of aging like gray hair, liver spots, and frown lines. However, we rarely pause to think about what is happening to our body at the cellular level.

LIGHTWAVE therapy is a safe and non-invasive way to take years off of your appearance. It is also an effective tool to enhance many of the other skin treatment procedures available to treat flaccid skin, discoloration, scars, burns, and more. LIGHTWAVE technology is behind our popular topical light infusion, red light therapy, and Envy Light Capsule treatments.
How is LIGHTWAVE Different from Traditional Treatments?
Our treatments are designed to make your body do most of the work for you by activating your body’s ability to heal itself. We can do this by using photobiomodulation to stimulate the cells beneath your skin to produce collagen and elastin, restoring your skin to a more youthful appearance and tightening sagging skin. Whether you are looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, or to treat injuries and common skin conditions, these treatments allow us to target specific areas or apply a broader treatment across your entire body.
How Safe are LIGHTWAVE Procedures?
Since procedures such as our red light therapy and Envy Light Capsule treatments use LED diodes to deliver light waves beneath the surface of your skin, they are minimally invasive and require very little downtime. We do not use lasers or intense light, so there is very little risk that you will suffer from burns, scarring, or severe pain. In fact, we are able to make the entire procedure comfortable and soothing so that it is like a day in the spa.
Our treatments are compatible with all skin types and there is little risk of blotching or uneven skin coloring that can occur with alternative forms of treatment. Some people can notice changes after their first treatment that continue to develop over time. Most people will notice more significant changes if they commit to eight to ten treatments.
LIGHTWAVE Works Well With Other Treatments
Procedures such as our topical light infusion can be paired with other skin treatments, such as chemical peels, micro-abrasion, and topical creams. LIGHTWAVE therapy is an effective way to activate the cells underneath your skin so that other forms of therapy penetrate deeper into the skin and allow your body’s natural healing cycle to assist in delivering superior results. You can discuss your concerns and goals with one of our skincare specialists to find a range of treatment options that are tailored to your specific needs.
Our Envy Light capsule also allows you to be able to target multiple areas of your body at the same time. This means that you can arrange for multiple treatment options in the same visit. This can save you money and time.

The skin care community is constantly making advancements in the products they use to help individuals fight the visible effects of aging and reverse damages to the skin from sun exposure and more, which can speed up the aging process. Light therapy is one of the latest advances to use the power of light to help you achieve the younger look you want. This aesthetic therapy promotes health and healing in the skin so you can stay looking younger.
How Does Light Therapy Work?
Light therapy uses photostimulation to apply pure, beneficial red or infra-red light directly to the skin, using a low powered LED light. It won’t damage the skin or cause a thermal increase, like laser therapy and intense pulsed light. Your skin cells convert this light, which falls outside the damaging UV spectrum, into cellular energy your skin can use to heal faster and more effectively. This energy stimulates collagen and elastin production, increases blood flow, improves cellular nutrient intake and removes excess fluids and waste from the cells themselves. Treatments typically take around 20 minutes and are non-invasive.
Red Light Therapy
Red light therapy is primarily responsible for boosting collagen and elastin production in your skin cells to revitalized aging skin, greatly reducing fine lines and wrinkles that can make you look older. This process is completed by improving hydration in the cells, stimulating blood flow to the treated area and removing toxins that may be trapped between the layers of your skin. It naturally improves the skin’s tone and texture for younger, healthier looking skin. It has also been found to repair problems areas like sun spots and other sun damage that can have an aging effect on the skin. In addition, red light therapy stimulates lymphatic drainage to restore skin tone and give you a more youthful appearance.
Infra-Red Light Therapy
Infra-red light therapy is a more intense treatment, though it is still safe and doesn’t damage the skin. This treatment goes deeper into the skin, providing you with additional healing elements that can help reverse the signs of aging. It increases cell permeability, which stimulates cellular pH equilibrium, improves nutrient absorption and eliminates waste byproducts. It reduces inflammation and promotes better healing.
Infuse Your Skin with Nutrients
In order to maximize the positive effects of light therapy for your skin, many offices use the treatment in combination with a topical ointment to infuse your skin with the nutrients it needs to fight the signs of aging. The skin’s primary job is to protect the organs in your body from the outside elements, but as a barrier, it can often be its own worst enemy when it comes to getting the proper nutrients. Using over-the-counter skin care ointments and other treatments often sit on the surface of the skin and don’t permeate deep enough to have a lasting effect. While the surface of your skin may be smoother and younger-looking, the layers deeper down don’t see the same benefits. However, when using the right topical treatment in conjunction with light therapy, you introduce these same beneficial ingredients deeper into the skin for a better overall effect. Even ingredients with larger molecule sizes effectively reach the deeper layers so you can enjoy younger looking skin for longer.
