“This will change your life”—was exactly what my beloved Red Door Spa esthetician Madeline Gawronska said as she ushered me into one of the treatment rooms. I am pretty much up for anything when it comes to perfecting the look and health of my skin. So when I heard “light therapy facial,” I wasn’t too surprised—I’ve tried this before at home. I have an aunt who buys every gizmo and gadget on the market, including something that looks like a wizard’s wand with a sandpaper tip… “to exfoliate the skin.” In short, I’m pretty much immune to self-inflicted skin punishment.
The Color4 Light Therapy Facial is the first of its kind to use four clinically proven wavelengths of UV-free LED light to dramatically boost skin’s cellular functioning and offer unparalleled skin rejuvenation. You can opt to add color light therapy to any Red Door facial as a booster.
This FDA-cleared light therapy works the same way as plants absorb and convert sunlight into cellular building blocks; the skin absorbs therapeutic light and uses it as a source of energy to stimulate cellular regeneration to produce collagen and elastin, kill acne bacteria, reduce inflammation, and speed healing. So don’t think “OMG, the sun makes you age. Why are you deliberately putting damaging rays on your face?” It’s different. It’s a better light. It’s a healing light.
Your skin cells absorb the photos emitted from the LED Light Therapy and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy that cells use to carry out normal functions (i.e. DNA repair and cell renewal). The two-way hands-free panel light increases treatment efficacy. After Madeline finished opening my pores with soothing steam and extracting all those gross blackheads from my strawberry nose, she gave me some eye goggles and told me to relax. Suddenly, it felt like I was lounging on the beach, soaking in the sun.
You won’t be sweating or gasping for air—I did try to itch my nose with my finger, but my hand was met with a thud from the panels. You’re under the lights for a total of 20 minutes (five minutes in the beginning, and 15 minutes at the end). I received the facial before the holidays and think my skin still feels smooth and looks even. So, if you’re looking for a new facial to try, you might want to stick your face under some LED lights.
