WHITE LIGHT

One of three ‘colours’ in the spec­trum of LED light fa­cial treat­ments. A bank of safe, UV-free lights are di­rected at the skin from a few inches away which feels like ly­ing in in­tense (but safe) sun­light — some­thing that’s also said to help those suf­fer­ing Sea­sonal Af­fec­tive Dis­or­der (SAD) or the win­ter blues. White light prom­ises to soothe, re­pair and re­duce in­flam­ma­tion, red light is used to slow and re­duce the signs of age­ing to re­ju­ve­nate, stim­u­late col­la­gen and pro­mote heal­ing, while blue light is ef­fec­tive for treat­ing acne given its abil­ity to kill off break­out-caus­ing bac­te­ria. About Face clin­ics use the Om­nilux brand, of­fer­ing it as a stand­alone treat­ment, and to re­duce heal­ing time af­ter laser or IPL treat­ments.
