What is LED Phototherapy

Dermalux is a non-invasive treatment that harnesses the power of pure light to accelerate the skins natural rejuvenation and repair processes

The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of this beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which energise cellular functions to stimulate various cellular processes with therapeutic effects. Skin cells that are energised function better and regenerate faster which in turn leads to younger, healthy and radiant skin.

Red light 633nm

Rejuvenating Red light accelerates cell renewal and repair, boosting collagen and elastin synthesis for smoother, firmer skin.
Exposure to Red light at 633nm is clinically proven to increase the body’s natural form of cellular energy (ATP) which in turn “kick starts” cells to regenerate faster.
Red light is potently absorbed by fibroblasts increasing collagen and elastin synthesis and boosting natural hydration levels.
It also improves blood flow for increased tissue oxygenation and the lymphatic systems to eliminate toxins.
It offers immediate visible results; skin feels hydrated and plump and radiance is restored.

Blue 415nm

Blemish fighting Blue light destroys the bacteria which causes spots and helps in the prevention of breakouts.
Exposure to Blue light at 415nm interacts with the p.acnes bacteria creating a photodynamic reaction which results in bacterial destruction.
It also helps to balance sebum production and improve skin clarity.
Applied in combination with Red and Near Infrared light, the Dermalux® treatment offers enhanced anti-blemish results and is excellent as a post treatment procedure to help minimise breakouts and reduce redness.

Near infrared 830nm

Exposure to Near Infrared light at 830nm triggers the skins anti-inflammatory processes to accelerate repair and reduce irritation and redness.
Near Infrared light builds strength and integrity for compromised, environmentally damaged and sensitive skin conditions.
It is also clinically effective in the treatment of age spots and hyper pigmentation.

How long does it take and how long before I see results?

Each appointment will be 45 minutes, this involves a double cleanse, exfoliation, application of a hydrating serum, 30 minutes under the LED, application of serums and moisturiser; using Medik8 products:

Following a Dermalux treatment, there are some immediate visible changes in the skin but most changes occur naturally over a series of treatments.
A single session is ideal an ideal ‘pick me up’ to replenish vital hydration, restore radiance or simply to calm irritated skin. A course of treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.
Results may continue to improve up to 4 to 6 weeks after a course as the effects of LED phototherapy continue to rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin.

What is the downtime and aftercare?

There is no downtime as such; clients can go back to doing their normal routine straight after treatment.
