Dr. Johnston is one of the few Orlando cosmetic surgeons to use LIGHTWAVE, one of the hottest and most requested skin care treatments on the market. LIGHTWAVE works by stimulating the cellular renewal response from deep within the tissue to help repair and renew tired damaged cells and stimulate the rejuvenation process to achieve and maintain beautiful, healthy skin.
FDA-approved, LIGHTWAVE LED light therapy incorporates Red light therapy, Blue light therapy and Infrared light therapy for everything from anti-aging to adult acne treatment.
LIGHTWAVE therapy works as a skin care treatment on three levels:
- Red light therapy increases blood circulation, reducing skin inflammation and nourishing damaged tissues.
- Infrared light, which is an invisible light energy, promotes the production of collagen and elastin.
- Blue light therapy is especially effective for acne, penetrating molecules within skin that cause P. acnes bacteria to form. These molecules react to the Blue light therapy by producing free radicals that destroy the bacteria itself.
How long is the recovery from non-surgical LIGHTWAVE therapy?
There is little to no downtime following LIGHTWAVE therapy. Patients rarely experience pain or discomfort, negative side effects, thermal damage or scarring or discoloration. In fact, most people find LIGHTWAVE therapy to be a soothing experience.
