LED Light Therapy in Kansas City
Patented red, infrared, and blue light therapy
Our innovative LED aesthetic treatments help to counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne, and acne scarring.
Unlike traditional LED light therapy, Lightwave’s active facial infusion systems are intended to combine colors of light and photoenergy with topicals to directly affect the tissue being treated. Utilizing red, infrared, and blue light therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort.
Lightwave System LED: The Lightwave System uses high-powered Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to distribute specific wavelengths of light energy to the skin in order to promote healing, boost collagen production, and even kill acne-causing bacteria. The positive therapeutic results of LED light therapy have been used for over 40 years and clinically documented by independent publications worldwide. This painless procedure floods your skin with photons that enter the tissue and stimulates cellular function as well as increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which jumpstarts healing.

LED Light Options Benefits
Red light (wavelength 625nm-660nm) penetrates human tissue superficially, with approximately 80% of the energy being absorbed in the first 2cm. Red light energy has a significant effect on mitochondrial stimulation, which increases the production of ATP and in turn boosts fibroblast activity. This leads to an increase in cellular turnover, superficial circulation, and an anti-inflammatory emission.
Blue light (wavelength 405nm-450nm) provides a very superficial penetration even with a high- intensity narrowband light source. It is primarily absorbed by the epidermis of the skin. Once it is absorbed, blue light targets P. acnes by stimulating porphyrins which then produce intracellular singlet oxygen and thus inducing bacterial death.
Infrared (IR) light (wavelength 800nm – 900nm) energy penetrates tissue at a greater depth than the blue and red light. Approximately 50% penetrates to 8cm and decreases to less than 1% at 20cm (NASA study). Infrared energy is known to heat tissue and its effects are well documented for therapeutic pain management. For cosmetic applications, IR stimulates the NaK+ pump which increases cell membrane permeability; facilitating equilibrium of cellular pH, while increasing nutritional absorption and elimination of waste byproducts.
Frequently Asked Questions.
What is Topical Light Infusion mean?
The Lightwave System can be used with Lightwave Infusions to drive a desired product deeper into the skin to promote improved therapeutic results. With Topical Infusions, you will get the benefit of the infusion in addition to the benefits of the LED light waves. Your provider can customize the infusion based on your skin's specific needs.
Who will this treatment benefit?
Acne: LED light helps to soothe inflammation and kill P-acne bacteria. (These clients should either do the LED add on or LED Light Infusion with the acne-focused infusion. NO Dermaplane or Microderm as it can inflame their acne.)
Healing skin: Clients who just did any ablative treatment would benefit from the LED light to accelerate healing. (These clients should ONLY do LED Light add on. No infusions or exfoliation.)
Anti-Aging: LED light alone or combined with infusion
Dry Skin: LED light alone or combined with infusion
