LED skin treatment Non-laser treatments, including intense pulsed like (IPL), light emitting diodes (LEDs), and photodynamic therapy (PDT) are not as effective for moderate to deep wrinkle reduction. It would take far too many treatments (not to mention paychecks) to see any significant results. Although they may reduce very fine lines, non-laser treatments are an inefficient method for reducing wrinkles. They are better suited to spot and scar reduction.
