Skin Anti-Aging Care with Lightwave

Lightwave’s innovative aesthetic treatments help counteract years of sun damage, environmental damage, aging, acne, and acne scarring. Lightwave provides noticeable results, often in a couple of treatments, without the high cost and downtime of other more expensive treatment options. Now, this great skin anti-aging care modality is in Spring Hill!

Lightwave is one of the few systems to maximize the benefits of red, infrared, and blue light energy. Each color or wavelength has a specific purpose.

The red light therapy component of Lightwave increases blood circulation. It promotes skin rejuvenation for:

  • skin anti-aging
  • sun spots
  • restore skin tone
  • flaccid skin
  • acne reduction
  • increase collagen and elastin

Acne Reduction

Blue light therapy involves targeting one of the main causes of acne which is the presence of P. Acnes bacteria. By specifically targeting this acne-causing bacterium, blue light therapy provides a non-invasive and gentle approach to clearing and rejuvenating the skin.

Blue light provides a very superficial penetration even with a high-intensity narrowband light source. The epidermis of the skin is the layer that primarily absorbs blue light. Once the blue light is absorbed, molecules within the skin produce singlet oxygen and free radicals that kill the P. Acne bacteria.

Lightwave panel has a specific treatment protocol leveraging blue light to help with acne reduction and improve skin conditions.

Infrared Light

Increase collagen and elastin

Infrared is an invisible light that increases collagen and elastin production and nourishes damaged tissue.

Infrared light penetrates tissue at a greater depth than blue and red light. It hastens wound healing and stimulates the regeneration of injured tissues, reducing inflammation and pain.

Lightwave Control Panel for Skin anti aging

What to expect?

Each individual responds differently; some notice changes much more quickly than others. The following principles are generalities; specific results will vary from client to client based on the client’s needs and lifestyle. The following protocols have been designed to address the most common requested treatments. Our treatments range between 8-30 minutes in duration.

Treatment Protocols

Discomfort/Pain (LW6)

Anti Aging (LW1)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) designed to re-hydrate the face, and increase collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues, and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement erasing years from the face. We recommend at least ten treatments. Maintenance once a month or as needed can prolong the youthful appearance.

Pigmentation (LW2)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) intended to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up, and chemical reactions from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This process normalizes the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin, the thickness of the skin, and the age of the client. Severe conditions such as Melasma may be best treated with a combination therapy of topical ointments such as hydroquinone, and/or IPL, and/or laser followed by LIGHTWAVE Therapy.

Scars (LW3)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) uses powerful Infrared and red light to stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue. Clients usually notice softening of scar tissue. They also notice flattening and widening of the scar. This is a normal sequence in scar reduction. With several more sessions the flat, wide scar will become thinner and remain flat. Some scars may appear to be resistant to this program (hypertrophic and/or keloid). If this is the case, a customized LIGHTWAVE treatment protocol and/or additional treatment options may need to be considered.

Preventative Care (LW4)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) is designed to increase blood circulation and bring more nutrients to the skin’s surface which helps to keep the skin from breaking down. It also helps to normalize dry or oily skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.

Flaccid Skin (LW5)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) that focuses on skin retraction by increasing circulation and bringing nutrition to damaged tissue. This program is particularly effective over the abdomen, neck, and upper chest. Treatments should be applied twice per week and may require between 10 – 15 treatments.

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and/or IR Light) specifically designed to address inflammation associated with trauma and/or an allergic reaction that causes discomfort with a focus on clients who experience persistent problems such as joint and muscle discomfort. It is also used within 72 hours of any traumatic event including post-surgical interventions to reduce scarring and encourage normal tissue formation.


This program is designed to allow the user to provide a protocol specific for a treatment condition that has not been addressed by one of the other pre-set protocols and has been shown to benefit from intense red and infrared light. It utilizes 15 minutes of continuous narrowband red light followed by 15 minutes of continuous narrowband IR light.


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 heats the 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.

Red Only 

Red light (wavelength 625nm-660nm) penetrates human tissue superficially, with approximately 80% of the energy being absorbed in the first 2cm. The energy of red light 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/Red Mild to Moderate Acne (LW10)

LIGHTWAVE proprietary LED light Therapy session (Red and Blue Light) designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. The first 15 minutes of Blue light first enters the sebaceous glands, creating singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen then in turn kills the bacteria. The following 15 minutes the red light does its job of increasing healing. This acne treatment aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring.

Blue Only

Blue light (wavelength 405nm-450nm) provides a very superficial penetration even with a high- intensity narrowband light source. The epidermis of the skin is the layer that primarily absorbs blue light. Once it is absorbed, blue light targets P. acnes by stimulating porphyrins which then produce intracellular singlet oxygen and thus inducing bacterial death. This ultimately helps with acne reduction.
