LED Light Therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that uses the power of light to rejuvenate, repair and revitalise the skin. The technology of LED light therapy is a natural photo-biological reaction that is clinically proven to reverse the visible signs of ageing, clear acne and blemishes, and accelerate healing.
The Dermalux treatment offers a pain free and effective way to achieve flawless, youthful and healthy skin. The visible effects are immediate, after just one treatment skin is hydrated, plump and radiant and any redness and irritation is calmed. A course of treatments offers dramatic and lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin.
A bit more information
Dermalux uses colour wavelengths of visible light that stimulate specific responses in the skin. Everyone can benefit from LED light therapy and can be used for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne and problem skin, rosacea and redness, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring and restoring radiance.
LED’s emit a low level light energy that will not burn or irritate the skin, making it suitable for all skin types and age groups. Furthermore, there is no risk of unwanted side effects or down time that can often be associated with more invasive procedures.
Although the technology of LED Light therapy is over 100 years old, it has only become more widely available as an aesthetic treatment in recent years. LED therapy has been shown in independent clinical research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissue. It is medically recognised and approved for a wide range of skin concerns and is rapidly becoming one of the most powerful skin care treatments in the industry today.
How does LED phototherapy work?
LED phototherapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific rejuvenating benefits within the skin. Skin cells have the ability to absorb light and use it as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells or neutralise bacteria. It is a natural biochemical reaction similar to that of plant photo-synthesis. The increased energy enhances cellular metabolism which in turn stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. Studies have shown that when skin is exposed to LED light wavelengths, skin cells regenerate themselves on average 150% to 200% faster and hydration can be increased by up to 600%. This whole process results in radiant, youthful and naturally healthy skin.
What are the benefits of LED light therapy?
Red LED light
Used for Skin Rejuvenation, Anti-Ageing and Healing. Red light has a powerful anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It is also an excellent treatment for sufferers of sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. LED Red Light benefits include
•Minimises fine lines and wrinkles
•Skin is smoother, firmer and plump
•Evens skin tone
•Soothes irritation and redness
•Stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation
•Accelerates the healing process
•Restores natural luminosity and glow
Blue LED light
Used for Acne and Congested Skin. Blue light has powerful anti-bacterial properties that decongest and purify acne and problematic skin and help to normalise oil production. LED Blue Light benefits include
•Assists in killing bacteria in the skin
•Reduces active acne
•Shrinks enlarged pores
•Helps to fight infection
•Great alternative to medication
Combined red & blue LED light
Used for sensitive and problematic skin the red and blue light in combination offers enhanced benefits and is clinically proven to be one of the most effective treatments for inflammatory acne and scarring currently available. Combined Lights benefits include
•Improved acne treatment
•Gently purifies without irritation
•Normalises unbalanced skin
•Reduces inflammation and swelling
Infra red LED light
Used for deeper lines and wrinkles, skin laxity and loss of skin density, uneven skin tone and texture, age spots and hyperpigmentation, photo and environmental damage, hormonal acne.
It can also be used for muscular and joint pain inflammation, swelling and bruising, poor circulation and sluggish lymphatic system, wound healing and post treatment healing
Will the results be seen straight away?
Following a Dermalux treatment, there are some immediate visible changes in the skin but most changes occur naturally over a series of treatments. Results may continue to improve up to 4 to 6 weeks after a course as LED phototherapy continues to stimulate the natural cellular processes to rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin.
How many treatments are required?
Whilst a course of treatments is recommended for optimal and lasting results, a single session of Dermalux is an ideal ‘pick me up’ to replenish vital hydration, restore radiance or simply to calm irritated skin. Dermalux LED phototherapy can also be used in combination with other skin treatments to further enhance overall results.
