Australian Skin Face Body Clinic and Dr Ian Holten use LED technology and it’s changing lives. LED is a light-based therapy particularly successful for scars, including acne, the procedure is non-invasive and can assist tissue healing, reduce inflammation, aid skin rejuvenation and hydration. The LED therapy is a multi use therapy often used to supercharge skin treatments and to help heal surgical wounds post-op. This LED technology is used for medical purposes by NASA to improve healing in space and for long-term human spaceflight. 


In 1903, a Nobel Prize for Medicine was given to a scientist by the name of Niels Finsen for the use of light therapy; once known as phototherapy. LEDs are light sources releasing energy in the form of photons. They release long wavelengths of light that stimulate cells to aid in healing. An increasing number of individuals are seeking non-invasive procedures for improving medical and aesthetic dermatologic conditions. Phototherapy refers to the use of nonthermal, non-invasive light to achieve a therapeutic outcome and can apply to a variety of light-emitting devices.  


Geelong Plastic Surgeon Ian Holten has been using LED therapy for patients for many years and believes the outcomes are positive. Scars can profoundly impact people psychologically, and when this technology is available to help this process along and give some hope- it's very positive.  Scarring that occurs from problems include acne, and can have long lasting psychosocial effects. 


According to a study featured in NCBI- results  showed that post-acne scars have a significant negative effect on the quality of life of young adults.
