LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy helps treat acne breakouts, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as inflammatory scarring and rosacea
LED Light Therapy activates skin cells with pulses of low level, non-thermal light energy. This is a non-invasive, pain free process which works to sooth and rejuvenate the skin. LED Light Therapy does this by encouraging the skins natural renewal process and collagen production.

LED Hair Growth Stimulation
LED Light for hair growth stimulation has no heating effects, no known side effects and no damage to the skin. The treatment is painless and relaxing. Bio-stimulating light energy is sent to the body’s cells, which the cells then convert into chemical energy to promote healthy rejuvenation of hair.
LED Light Therapy for hair growth stimulation is an FDA approved form of non-invasive light used in a specific wavelength to stimulate blood flow throughout the scalp. Light is transmitted through the skin’s layers of the scalp where they optimize the immune responses of the blood. This has both anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects. It is a scientific fact that light transmitted to the blood in this way has positive effects throughout the whole body, supplying vital oxygen and energy to every cell. Cells associated with the hair and hair growth benefit from this same process. This cannot produce new hair follicles and it is advised to have such treatments with PRP hair injections for best results.
How does this help with hair loss?
LED Light Therapy introduces energy to the scalp, hair follicles and cells, in the form of non-thermal photons of light. Light is transmitted through the skin’s layers (epidermis, dermis and subcu fatty layer), which the cells then convert into chemical energy to promote healthy rejuvenation of hair. This is similar to the photosynthetic process that happens in plants.
What is the science behind it?
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have been used in attempts to grow hair and stop hair loss since the 1950’s. Recent studies placed LED light panels 30 centimeters from the alopecia area with dosages ranging from 3-4 joule per sq.cm. In the study, microscopic evaluation of the hair shaft structure on the Alopecia Areata exposed areas showed a clear medulla rich in keratin after treatment. Keratin is a key component in hair, nails and skin.
In 2002 at the 4th Annual Meeting of the Japan Light Therapy Association, success was reported with an increase in both hair growth and density of the hair follicles in the light treated areas of both male and female stress Alopecia and Alopecia Areata. Only one failure out of 240 cases was reported in two papers!
In a recent double-blind comparative study of light treatment, the duration of hair loss and baldness, according to the Hamilton-Norwood official scale of hair loss, were recorded. A skin biopsy for histological examination was taken before and after treatment. In addition, a photograph was taken of the patients at the same time. Hair shaft thickness was measured with hair stretching equipment where the hairs can be stretched on a graded scale from 0-10. Normal value of hair shaft stretching is set at 5. All 240 patients with the exception of one, in the light treated group, showed a complete stop of hair loss. All patients, except 3, showed a clear regrowth of hair with a reduction of at least one category in the Hamilton-Norwood
classification. The results were confirmed by histological examination and a clearly visible regrowth of hairs was found in most treatment sample comparisons when comparing the histological findings. Out of the 240 patients, 14 showed an increase in hair thickness, and all 240 showed improvement in general hair shaft quality measured with the hair stretcher. The present day, double-blind study definitely showed that regrowth of new hairs can be achieved
in most middle-aged and younger males and females, with typical male and female baldness when the scalp is exposed to Light Therapy for 30 minute twice weekly for 10 weeks. KLSC treatments are schedule twice weekly for 10 weeks. Consistency is key, as hair grows in different stages and each hair grows at it’s own individual rate. Again we stress the fact that no new hair follicles will be made as this procedure combined with PRP hair injections will stimulate the existing dying hair follicles to receive nutrients and regrow to a healthier state.
For Revive Clinics face & skin PRP treatments the Platelet Rich Plasma rejuvenates the collagen promoting a youthful appearance, and is able to perform a range of benefits to the patients from fading of scars to reducing pigmentation for smoother toned skin.
