How Often Should I Use LED Light Therapy at Home?

LED light therapy is a fantastic treatment in both a home setting and a clinical one. But have you ever wondered... How often should I use LED Light Therapy at home?

Today, we dive into the details, so you know exactly what you're doing when it comes to rejuvenating your skin.

How often should I use LED light therapy at home?

Doing LED light therapy at home should be done 3-5 times a week if your goal is anti-aging, 3 times a week if your goal is acne treatment and daily if your goal is pain relief.

Here is a more detailed look at how often you should use your device based on your goals:

Anti-Aging (Red Light Therapy):

Typically done 3-5 times per week for around 15-20 minutes per session. Often this is reduced to 1-2 times a week when wanting to maintain your results.

Acne Treatment (Blue Light Therapy):

Recommended to do 3 sessions per week for at least 10-20 minutes. You can continue to do 3 sessions a week even in a maintenance phase.

Pain Relief or Inflammation (Near Infrared Light Therapy):

Daily use is recommended for acute conditions with a session duration of up to 30 minutes depending on the severity of the pain or inflammation.

How often should you do red light therapy?

As red-light therapy falls under the anti-aging category, we stick to the 3-5 times a week schedule when using a home device. If you don't have a home device, you should visit a clinic as often as you can afford to.

How often should you do red light therapy on your face?

The location of the light therapy does not dictate how often you should get treatment done. Whether you're treating the face or the body, the schedule is the same. 3-5 times a week is a great option for red light therapy in general.

How often can you do yellow light therapy?

Yellow light therapy has the goal of reducing redness and improving skin texture. This type of LED light therapy can be done 2-3 times a week.

How often can you do Infrared light therapy?

Infrared light therapy penetrates the deeper layers of the skin for pain relief and reducing inflammation, as well as promoting healing. This can be done daily for acute conditions.

Is it better to use a home device or go to a clinic?

When tossing up between going to a clinic or using a home device you have a number of things to consider.

Have you tried LED light therapy before? If not, you should book a few sessions at a clinic so you can see if you like it.

Which option are you likely to be consistent with? If you're struggling with motivation or don't have the time to go to a clinic every month, a home device is the way to go.

Do you need a specialist to explain the differences between different colour lights such as red, blue and yellow? Then you should go to a clinic to find out more information on each type.

Are you an LED light therapy addict and want to save money as well as do it as much as possible? You're now ready to invest in a home LED light therapy device.

Remember, that not all LED light therapy is equal. You should ask your chosen clinic what technology they use, how long the session is and what wavelengths they recommend.

What are the best LED light therapy home devices?

Doing LED light therapy at home is an investment, but it's well worth it when you factor in how much you'll save over the long run.

Then it comes to LED light therapy devices you need to consider the quality and the colours that they are able to use. You should factor in your overall goals or skin concerns and then decide on how often to go to a clinic or how often to use LED light treatment at home.

A LED mask (light therapy masks) is a great low-cost item to use at home for general skin health. But for promoting wound healing, advanced skin conditions and getting the best possible results, you should look into a full body panel for home use or reach out to your healthcare provider for more information.
