Light emitting diode (LED) therapy uses light to target skin cells and maximise treatment results in a wide range of dermatological conditions. LED complements the body’s own natural moisture renewal process to plump up the skin naturally. It has also been proven to accelerate wound and scar healing, making it ideal for post-surgery recovery.
What skin conditions can be treated with LED phototherapy?
The treatment can be used to address a wide range of issues affecting the skin, including sun damage, acne, scarring, and conditions like eczema and dermatitis. It is also helpful in improving the overall appearance and condition of the skin.

How does excessive sweating treatment work at ICCM in Sydney?
If you choose to have your hyperhidrosis treatment in Sydney with us at ICCM, this is what you can expect:
If you suffer from excessive sweating and are considering an anti-sweating treatment, we recommend that you come in for a personal consultation at the clinic. This will give you the opportunity to raise any questions or concerns you might have about the procedure, and ensure that it is the right treatment for your particular needs.
Our doctors utilise a natural, purified protein with muscle-relaxing properties to deactivate smooth muscle within sweat glands, reducing their activity. Tiny needles are used to inject the product just underneath the skin. A numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to treatment, although most clients find this unnecessary as the treatment is quick and only mildly uncomfortable.
The formula is injected below the skin’s surface with the use of a very fine needle. During the treatment session, your doctor will administer multiple injections into the area of concern. The number of injections you require will depend on the site of treatment, as well as the severity of your condition.
