Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month you can help Skincare Butik raise money for the cause simply by scheduling an LED light treatment! You will receive a 50% discount when you schedule a treatment in the month of October. 100% of profits will be donated to a local organization* helping raise breast cancer awareness and 20% of profits from pink merchandise sales will be donated as well.

If you never tried a LED light treatment before, this is the perfect time. Skincare Butik highlights LED light therapy as the featured Treatment of the Month. It has many health benefits for cancer patients undergoing treatment that go beyond the cosmetic benefits we normally recommend this treatment for.

Here are some fascinating facts:

  • As one of the most acclaimed and documented treatments for aging, healing wounds, improving skin diseases such as eczema and treating brain tumors and compromised skin cells (such as in the mouths of cancer patients), LED light therapy is fast becoming a revolution in health care.
  • LED light therapy is a non-invasive procedure done with panels of red and/or infrared lights that deliver low-level pulses of light up to three times brighter than the sun to activate skin cells. It works like photosynthesis for the skin – it converts light energy already found in skin cells to promote healing and anti-aging effects.
  • Health Benefits of LED Light Therapy: Studies show that skin exposed to LED light wavelengths grows 150-200% faster. Therefore, as LED therapy improves the cosmetic appearance of skin, it also promotes the healing of wounds, scars and burns. This happens because skin has a high blood and water content, so it quickly absorbs red light to produce enough energy to cause a healing response from the body.
  • NASA uses LED therapy to treat muscle and bone atrophy and decreased healing of wounds in astronauts. The US Navy also uses LED therapy on deep-sea submarines. Leading cancer treatment specialists are using LED lights to activate light-sensitive cancer treatment pills and having outstanding results in fighting otherwise unreachable brain tumors. LED therapy is advancing the treatment of chemotherapy side effects such as severe mouth sores and lesions.
  • LED light therapy is safe and effective for all skin types, has no known side effects, downtime or pain and requires no after care.
  • Although LED treatments are commonly used on patients by an aesthetician, LED light therapy machines are also sold for use in the home; stop by Skincare Butik and try out NuFACE Trinity. Trinity’s wavelengths of healing light can be used to treat acne, premature aging and help heal skin tissue.
  • Treatments 5 to 10 sessions, 1-2 times/ week for best effects are recommended.


*First Friday’s mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of the importance of early detection and providing free mammograms for women in need in South Texas.
