Last week I was invited to try the new LED Light Therapy Facial at the Chi Yu Wellness Centre and Spa. The Japanese wellness centre in Marylebone is like a little slice of heaven complete with rows of organic body scrubs, fabulous green tea and friendly beauty technicians.
I’ve had LED a few times in LA, so I was excited to try it again. As some of you beauty experts may already know, the LED (Light Emitting Diodes) Therapy is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment which uses specific wavelengths to reduce and prevent wrinkles, sun spots, acne and acne scarring. This is a great treatment for those of us who do suffer with acne and the scars that seem to remain on our faces. Of course, there a few reasons for acne scarring, such as the type of blemish it was. There are many more reasons too, those interested can see more at reneerouleau.com if they’d like. It’s always good to understand why acne scars the skin, this can help you to prevent it from happening as often. However, with this treatment, it should lower the chances of that significantly. Our skin has the ability to absorb the harmless infrared light to stimulate cellular regeneration, which is great for us AGs who aren’t ready for Botox or more invasive anti-aging treatments!
My facial began with a soothing cleansing treatment to remove dirt and makeup from the skin. The lovely therapist then attached the LED Light Therapy mask to my face and switched on the light for 25 minutes. This is a perfect treatment for ladies on the go, just pop in on your lunch break! For maximum benefits, book around six treatments, and the ladies at Chi Yu promise you’ll see dramatic change in your skin’s firmness and clarity.
