Would LED Therapy the Skin Reduce the Efficacy, Longevity or Create Problems (E.g Lumps) with Juvederm

Is it best to avoid LED light skin therapy while there are these products in the skin, or time them so they are not done soon before or after sculptra, HA fillers or botox?

LED treatments are extremely shallow and have incredibly minimal results, if any. There would be no effect on fillers or Botox as LED cannot penetrate deeply enough to affect these.

I tried this but the results were very poor and unpredictable. LED may have some efficacy in other issues.

LED red and infrared light therapy is safe with all procedures.

We use Omnilux red and infrared light with many of our procedures.  There has never been problem and this LED therapy speeds up the healing following most procedures.   There is not a problem with any of the procedures you have mentioned.
