How Does LED Phototherapy Work?
LED Phototherapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific rejuvenating benefits within the skin. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally. The skin has the ability to absorb certain wavelengths of light (colours) and use them as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells or kill 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, 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.
Dermalux LED is Safe for All Skin Types
Unlike more invasive procedures, LED Phototherapy does not use heat, trauma or chemicals to promote change in the skin and therefore provides one of the safest options to treat all skin types without thermal damage or downtime.
Your LED Phototherapy Experience
During your LED Phototherapy treatment your skin needs to be clean and free of all makeup. Skin care products and skin creams must be removed to allow the beneficial light to penetrate into the skin. Treatment usually lasts for around 20 minutes, depending on the treatment area and skin disorder to be treated. For enhanced results a topical serum may be applied.
LED light therapy is a non-invasive and pain free treatment that promotes a feeling relaxation and wellbeing whilst rejuvenating the skin. Exposure to the light can increase serotonin levels, which in turn help to relieve stress, tension and headaches. Any feeling of 'heat' is most often due to the stimulation of blood circulation.
LED Phototherapy Treatment Results
Treatment times are short and the visible effects are in most cases immediate; Dermalux™ instantly revives a tired and dull complexion. After just one treatment skin is visibly hydrated, smooth and radiant whilst redness and irritation is calmed. Light therapy also promotes a feeling of wellbeing, helping to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life.
A course of treatments offers corrective and lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin.
Results of LED Phototherapy can be enhanced when used in combination with other skin treatments such as Chemical Peels, Micro-Needling and Laser - please speak to one of our experienced aesthetic therapists.
DERMALUX LED RED LIGHT
633 nanometres is the chosen Red LED light wavelength used in all standard Dermalux systems as it is beneficial for all skin types and has an anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin.
Red light increases natural hydration levels and moisture retention in the skin and has an immediate calming effect reducing redness and inflammation. LED Phototherapy effectively shrinks pores, regulates oil production and improves circulation.
Red light is also a medically approved treatment for rosacea.
With Red light, visible results are immediate, after just one session the skin will become clearer, hydrated and plump with a healthy radiance.
Dermalux LED Red Light:
Stimulates collagen synthesis and growth factor production
Increases hydration levels and moisture retention
Evens skin tone and texture
Calms redness & inflammation
Shrinks pores and sebaceous glands
Stimulates circulation & lymphatic system
Accelerates skin repair
NEAR INFRA-RED LIGHT
Infra-Red LED light uses 830 nanometre wavelength as it is the most deeply absorbed wavelength by skin tissue. It works synergistically with red light to achieve optimum rejuvenation and repair for anti-ageing, pigmentation, deep tissue healing and scar reduction and prevention. It also helps boost immune system activity.
Near Infra-Red light primarily stimulates the intercellular processes in skin and penetrates deeper into the dermis, it offers greater improvement for smoothing lines and wrinkles and increasing the elasticity and tone of the skin.
Near Infra-Red Light:
- Most deeply absorbed wavelength by skin tissue
- Increases cell permeability and absorption
- Reduces pain and inflammation
- Accelerates wound healing
- Heals cystic acne
Dermalux LED Blue Light
415 nanometres is the chosen Blue LED light wavelength used in all standard Dermalux systems.
Blue Light has very powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne and problem skin without irritation.
Exposure to blue light is a particularly effective treatment for acne as it destroys the P. acnes bacteria and is an effective alternative for clients who do not respond to other acne treatments or antibiotic therapy, especially for dark and teenage skin.
Blue light Acne treatment is also excellent in the prevention of future breakouts and bacterial skin infection. UV-free phototherapy has been used for decades in the management of common skin disorders including eczema and psoriasis.
Essentially, visible blue light provides all the antibacterial benefits associated with sunlight but without any harmful and damaging UV rays.
Dermalux LED Blue light:
- Powerful anti-bacterial treatment
- Treats all grades of acne without irritation
- Reduces oil production
- Prevents future breakouts
- UV free alternative for eczema and psoriasis
The Dermalux™ LED treatment enables all three wavelengths to be delivered either individually or simultaneously in any selected combination, maximizing results and reducing treatment times.
