Boosting Collagen with LED Light Facial Treatment at Embody

Do you like the idea of improving your skin condition, but you’re not quite yet ready for injections or even surgery? then I’m here to share with you my recent experience with the LED Light Therapy Facial Treatment.

This year, I joined the 40 club and I have to say I blummin love it! I feel like I’ve had a new lease of life and now more than ever, I want to look after myself, both physically and mentally. 

If you’ve followed me for some time, you’ll know my passion is pretty much based around makeup with skincare following right behind it. But in order to have a great foundation for your make up, looking after your skin is key.

Don’t get me wrong, I am under no illusion that you can turn back the hands in time (that is unless you want to go under the knife). However, there are alternative steps you can take to improve and maintain the appearance of our skin.

I had the pleasure of teaming up with Embody at CTC Healthcare again.  You may remember a previous blog about the rejuvenating acupuncture facial treatment (click here for full review). 

This time I had their LED Light Therapy. This included 6 sessions, over a period of 8 weeks and here’s my full review.

What is LED Light Therapy?

When used frequently, overtime, LED lights can penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin.  They absorb and stimulate the production of collagen. Leading to potential benefits like younger-looking skin, enhanced muscle repair, and diminished scarring.  They also include treating acne, regulating natural oil production, minimising redness and wrinkles. Certain wavelengths can even reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone.

How does collagen effect the signs of getting older?

If you’re of a similar age to me or older, then you’ll be aware that the older we get, the less collagen we produce.  By stimulating our collagen and keeping these levels healthy, this can give us a glowing complexion, firm skin, texture tone and even healthy hair.

In other words, the more collagen we generate, the better we’ll look and feel as we get older and that my little beaut’s, is what I’m all about!

My journey with Embody?

  • Leon carried out all my treatments and explained how the therapy works. 
  • We talked about my skin aspirations, mine were even skin tone and if a reduction of spot scares.
  • You lie down for approx. 45-50 mins with the LED light covering your facing
  • 6 sessions costs a total of £200, which only work out at £33.33 per treatment

I took before and after shots at each stage of the treatment, to capture the effects. This picture was taken prior to my 1st session:

This next image was taken post my last session. For me, there are some noticeable difference on both sides of my face.

The Verdict

Using this treatment alongside a good and consistent skincare routine, I started to see a difference by the 2nd treatment. After the 4th session, I saw a noticeable change with my skin texture. By my final therapy, I can confidently share my personal results:

  • Even skin tone (incl. reduction in pigmentation and dark areas)
  • Skincare routine and products working more effectively
  • Glowing and radiant skin
  • Make up application smoother resulting in a flawless finish
  • Reduction of lines around eyes, appearing smoother

The great news is, the LED light treatment does not damage your skin, plus the light therapy is completely safe and suitable for all skin types.

I’ve definitely got the bug for this type of treatment and the fact I’ve seen positive results, first hand, reassures me this is an effective and non-invasive avenue.

For complete transparency, Embody kindly gifted these 6 sessions. However I was under no obligation to promote or write about this. However, after a positive experience, along with great results, I couldn’t wait to share this with you guys.

Embody are based in Nantwich, Cheshire. If you feel that this is something your skin would benefit from, then get in touch.
