What is an LED Facial and What Does It do?
An LED Facial, also known as Light Emitting Diode therapy, is a revolutionary FDA-approved skincare treatment that uses varying wavelengths of light, including red and blue, to improve the face’s overall appearance and health.
But there’s even more science at work behind the scenes: Red wavelength LED has been proven to transfer healing energy into cells, stimulating collagen production and helping to boost your mood, while blue wavelength LED has been proven to kill bacteria that cause acne.
At Mod Facial, we recommend LED therapy for anti-aging, correcting discoloration, healing acne, and reversing the effects of sun damage, among other common skin concerns.

What Should I Expect During My LED Facial Appointment?
When you arrive at our skincare spa for your first facial with LED treatment, a member of the Mod Facial team will begin with a consultation to understand your self-care concerns and determine the appropriate light wavelengths for your treatment.
After a thorough cleansing of your face, you’ll be provided with protective eyewear, and the LED light will be positioned close to your face.
During treatment, you will experience a warm and comfortable sensation as the light penetrates your skin. There is no pain or discomfort involved, making it a relaxing experience for most individuals.
The best part is there’s no downtime—you can return to your daily activities immediately after.

Is an LED Facial Right For Me?
The Mod Facial LED modality is perfect for anyone who wants to revamp their skin tone, texture, and overall facial appearance. As a gentle, non-invasive treatment, LED facials are safe for most skin types and tones, but are particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with aging skin, wrinkles and fine lines, active acne breakouts, acne scars, and inflammatory skin conditions.
However, we do recommend that pregnant women and individuals with certain health conditions or those on specific medications that increase light sensitivity should call our Mod Facial team before undergoing LED facial treatments.
