Stimulates collagen and elastin production
Heals blemishes, repairs sun damage, fades scars and improves overall skin tone.
Eliminates acne causing bacteria
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
LED light therapy is a painless, relaxing, non-invasive skin-care treatment that has multiple benefits—particularly stimulating collagen and treating mild to moderate acne. The technology was developed by NASA for wound healing. Then they were used in the medical field before they began gaining popularity in esthetics.
The premise of LED Facial is that different colours trigger different reactions beneath the epidermis, and penetrate the skin at varying depths. Your skin can absorb light, the energy from the light enables the cells to produce more cellular fuel (ATP), boosting their performance and allowing them to do what they do naturally, but at an enhanced rate.
TREATMENT TIME: 45-60 min
LED Facial sessions could include (dependent on client), but not limited to:
• Hydro Dermabrasion (diamond tip exfoliation, pore vacuuming)
• High Frequency
• Custom Dermal Infusions
• Dermaquest clinical grade mask
• LED Therapy
• Moisturizer Infusion & Massage
RECOVERY TIME: none
DISCOMFORT LEVEL: zero
NUMBING CREAM: none
RESULTS: cumulative, series of 4-8 is recommended for certain skin concerns.
LONGEVITY: varies per individual (dependent on lifestyle, home skin care products/routine, etc.)
The most commonly used light colours are red and blue.
Red LED Light
The red light acts as an anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation therapy. The infrared uses a long wavelength, activating cell regeneration, fibroblasts and stimulating the creation of collagen and elastin. As a result, it helps to substantially reduce wrinkles and fine lines; closes large pores; and prevents the aging of the skin.
Blue LED Light
Blue light acts as a powerful anti-acne treatment, working to cure blemishes by starting at the root cause: the bacteria that causes acne. The blue wavelength has the ability to penetrate the skin and produce radical oxygen that destroys the bacteria Propionibacterium Acnes.
Purple LED Light
A combination of red and blue light creates purple light, which helps eliminate toxins, reduces inflammation and improves healing and circulation of blood. As a result, purple light is highly recommended after aggressive and invasive treatments (such as Botox, fillers or lasers), since it considerably reduces inflammation and marks. It also helps wound healing; reduces visible acne and acne marks.
Yellow LED Light
Yellow light, on the one hand stimulates lymphatic circulation, improves the oxygenation of the cells and favours the immune system. As a result, it helps reduce redness (couperose) and irritation; regulates sensitive skin; and increases the luminosity and softness of the skin. Yellow light also stimulates the nervous system, improving muscle and tissue tone. As a result, it has a highly firming and tightening effect on the skin.
Green LED Light
The green light helps to control hyperpigmentation of the skin and has a great regenerative power of skin nutrients damaged by sun and age. The green light acts against the melanocytes, the melanin forming cells in the inner part of the epidermis, inhibiting the production of excess melanin.
As a result, it helps eliminate dark spots on the skin and is highly beneficial for people suffering hyperpigmentation, melasma and vitiligo. Dark scars are lightened and skin tone is equal with expression lines reduced.

I tried the hydro facial at Mint smile bar. It was awesome! The worker asked about my skin concerns and addressed them. I have normal to dry skin, especially in the winter. They used specific products to fit my skin type. I got all my pores cleaned out! They used a vacuum sort of tool and suck out all your blackheads etc. Then you get to go under a dome with oxygen for your face and pores to breath. At the end of the treatment I left with my face feeling extra soft, it was amazing! I'll definitely be back again, thank you!!
