Finding the right facial treatment for your skin can be tricky–but we may have just discovered one that could check all your boxes. LED (Light Emitting Diode) facial therapy has become really popular over the past few years.

This therapy transforms the skin by treating its unique needs with the use of light technology–making this the perfect treatment for the pain adverse! To get a full rundown of everything you need to know about light therapy skincare, keep reading!

An Introduction to Light Therapy Skincare

Blue Light

One of the most common and popular choices, blue light stimulates the production of oxygen radicals to destroy acne vulgaris–the bacteria responsible for your pimples and blemishes–while leaving the good bacteria intact.

This is great for people who struggle with constant breakouts and acne-prone skin because the blue light will penetrate deep into the skin layers and stimulate this acne-causing bacteria, making them work against each other and eventually self-destruct.

Yellow Light

The fountain of youth in the world of light therapy, yellow light reduces redness and wrinkle-causing inflammation, energising the skin’s outer layer. It works by stimulating the rejuvenation process within your cells to revitalise and heal the skin, improving its density to give you radiant and youthful looking skin.

Red Light

This is the most deeply absorbed wavelength and has the power to increase the skin’s natural hydration levels and reduce any visible redness and inflammation on the skin. For people with acne-prone skin, it is often recommended to pair red and blue light together to regulate oil production and accelerate skin repair.

Facial Solutions

Porcelain Origins’ Zit Zap Treatment

If a blemish-free complexion is what you dream of, look no further than Singapore’s first smart spa, Porcelain Origins. The spa’s brand-new concept store combines a cafe, retail and spa experience to provide beauty junkies with a holistic wellness experience facilitated with the latest technology.

Zap away your skin woes with the spa’s ZapZap IPL treatments featuring the latest technology from Spain. For people with ageing skin, we recommend the ZapGlow treatment which uses yellow light set at a specific intensity to target collagen repair and stimulation. This treatment is great because it also smoothes out any fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin look and feel more revitalised and youthful!

Porcelain Origins also offers other facial treatments such as the ZapGlow and ZapBright –which target ageing and saggy skin. Pair with their Sun Rescue facial to boost hydration and Arctic Tone facial to intensify lifting effects. You’ll walk out of the spa with healthy and glowing skin that’s better than any beauty filter.
