WHAT IS IT:
Treatments using an award winning, sensation-free, FDA approved LED light emitting device.
WHAT IS IT FOR:
Supporting other treatments for age related issues, improving results
Inflammatory skin conditions
Devitalised, dull skin
Supporting other treatment for hyperpigmentation
Assisting the penetration of actives
Supporting the effects of other treatments and technologies
As part of a treatment plan for scarring
LED light panels are arced above the treatment area and a sensation-free, energised light is emitted. Powerful medical grade technology means that only 20 minutes of light is required for a full strength treatment.
Dermalux® non-invasive LED light technology is FDA and CE MDD proven for the treatment of acne, stimulation of collagen, improvement of hyperpigmentation and the calming of inflammation. It can be added to your choice of Medi-Facial or procedure or is a stand alone, pick-me-up for glowing skin. An intensive course of treatments, done twice or three times weekly, produces the best results.
An intensive course of treatments, done twice or three times weekly, produces the best results but one off treatments or shorter courses can be done as a booster or as support to other procedures, intensifying results.
NEED TO KNOW:
LED technology is not photosensitising. Sun exposure should be avoided for five days to one month if Peel treatments are also done.
Photosensitising products and drugs or photosensitivity conditions are contraindicated.
Other requirements may be relevant for combined technologies.
SUITABLILITY WHEN PREGNANT OR LACTATING:
Phototherapy is ‘the use of light to alter biological activity’.
Phototherapy or Low Level Light therapy involves exposing cells or tissue to low levels of light in the visible or near infrared part of the spectrum. When light of these wavelengths penetrates the skin, it is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell which starts a cascade of inter and extracellular reactions that promotes healthier skin. These reactions first begin when the light is absorbed by the mitochondria (energy centres of the cell) and continue to work even after the light has been switched off. Phototherapy is not a new science and today over 1000 clinical studies have studied the effects of light on our bodies and on many cellular processes.
These have demonstrated that light:
• Enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP which enhances cellular metabolism and proliferation
• Enhances cellular homeostasis, repairing imbalances within the cell and between cells
• Increases blood flow and lymph activity to eliminate toxins and accelerate healing
• Enhances RNA and DNA synthesis to improve reproduction of healthy cells
• Increases proliferation of cell types involved in promoting and maintaining healthy skin
• Increases the production of collagen and elastin
• Decreases P. acne bacteria
A bespoke photofacial for the treatment of rosacea and sensitivity incorporating anti-inflammatory near-infrared (NIR) and red, medical grade light therapy.
A bespoke photofacial for the treatment of acne or congested skin using traditional Deep Cleansing, Microdermabrasion or Peels and incorporating blue, anti-inflammatory NIR and red medical grade LED therapy to reduce acne bacteria, assist healing and improve scarring.
A bespoke photofacial combining Resurfacing, collagen therapy and medical grade NIR and Red LED therapy.
Dermalux® award winning technology provides a pain and sensation free treatment for an array of desired targets including collagen boosting, reduction of inflammation and acne and the assisting of recovery post skin trauma or scarring. A course is required for targeted effects but single treatments still gives skin an effective boost as well as potentially supporting other procedures, microneedling and HIFU included.
LED therapy can also be added to a range of other treatments such as our Medi-facials and Plasma treatments and may be suggested for you in our signature assessment process if appropriate for your individual needs.
