LED Light Therapy is a natural non-invasive method for skin rejuvenation. The lights from the LEDs interact with cells and stimulate them to produce new collagen and elastin. Great for energising, repairing and rejuvenating uneven skin, repair damaged skin, scar tissue and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, helps fight against many skin conditions and is perfect for acne and breakout-prone skin to help remove and heal bacteria and clear up the skin and improve skins appearance.
Multi award-winning Dermalux® is the latest generation in LED Phototherapy combining clinically proven wavelengths of light delivered at safe, therapeutic doses to naturally stimulate skin rejuvenation and resolve problem skin conditions for the face and body.
Dermalux® systems ensure ‘optimised’ penetration of light into the skin to energise cellular functions with excellent results for skin rejuvenation, acne and spot prone skin, pigmentation and inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and dermatitis.
LED Phototherapy is based on the principle that living cells are able to absorb and are influenced by light. The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of 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. It is a natural response similar to that of plant photo-synthesis through a process known as photobiomodulation.
While we often associate light exposure with negative effects such as skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin for example. It can also promote healing, reduce inflammation and pain and prevent tissue damage.
The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. Whilst on-going exposure to UV is very damaging, controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.
LED Phototherapy has long been known for its regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties. Research demonstrates that it increases collagen production, destroys acne causing bacteria, reduces inflammation, improves skin tone, texture and clarity and eases muscular and joint pain. Unlike more invasive procedures that work as a result of the body’s response to trauma, LED Phototherapy is a safe and year round treatment option for all skin types without discomfort or downtime.
Successful treatment with LED Phototherapy is determined by delivering clinically proven wavelengths at an optimised intensity and dose to maximise the light / chromophore interaction that allow for these specific cellular reactions to take place.
If the wavelength does not match the target cell then there will be no absorption and therefore no reaction and no result. Secondly, if the photon intensity is too low then again there will be no reaction and no result. Not all LED Phototherapy systems are the same!
Dermalux® LED Phototherapy is clinically proven in the treatment of a wide range of cosmetic and dermatological skin indications, to naturally stimulate skin rejuvenation and resolve problem conditions for both the face and body. Due to its ability to activate cellular processes without transferring heat or creating trauma, the versatility of LED Phototherapy is greater than many other advanced skin treatments.
Dermalux® can be used as a standalone treatment for the indications as outlined below. It can also be integrated with existing skin treatments to enhance and accelerate results and as part of an on-going skin care programme.
Following is a list of skin conditions where LED Phototherapy has been shown to be effective.
• Skin rejuvenation: fine lines, complexion and texture
• Acne and prone skin
• Rosacea, redness and flushing
• Dehydrated and lacklustre skin
• Inflammatory conditions
• Accelerated healing and pain relief
• Relaxation, wellbeing and mood lifting
Clinically Proven Wavelengths
Dermalux® systems use only clinically proven wavelengths delivered at the optimised intensity and dose enabling effective photobiomodulation of targeted cells and skin tissue with proven results.
Dermalux® Red 633nm
Dermalux® Red 633nm naturally stimulates skin rejuvenation. It 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 the synthesis of collagen and elastin for smoother firmer skin. It also stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic systems to eliminate toxins and accelerate healing. The visible effects post treatment are in most cases immediate; skin feels hydrated and plump and radiance is restored.
• Increases collagen and elastin synthesis
• Reduces fine lines
• Improves complexion, texture and tone
• Increases natural hydration
• Stimulates circulation and lymphatic system
• Revitalises and restores radiance
Dermalux® Blue 415nm
Dermalux® Blue 415nm has powerful antibacterial properties and offers effective treatment for all grades of acne without irritation. 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 reduce sebum production and improve skin clarity. Applied in combination with Red and Near Infrared light, the Tri-Wave treatment is excellent as a post treatment procedure to guard against infection, reduce inflammation and accelerate healing.
• Anti-bacterial action without irritation
• Congested & acne prone skin
• Helps to regulate natural oil production
• Improves skin clarity
• Calming effect for problem skin
Dermalux® Near Infrared 830nm
Dermalux® Near Infrared 830nm works synergistically with Red light for optimum rejuvenation results. It is the most deeply absorbed wavelength targeting the inflammatory process cells to accelerate tissue healing and reduce scarring. NIR has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect building strength and integrity for sensitive conditions such as acne, rosacea and psoriasis. It is also clinically proven in the treatment of hyperpigmentation and aids penetration of topical products through increased cell permeability.
• Advanced regenerating and healing treatment
• Powerful anti-inflammatory action
• Relieves redness and sensitivity
• Reduces pigmentation and evens tone
• Strengthens damaged capillaries
• Relieves pain
Dermalux Concurrent Modality Treatment (CMT™)
Dermalux® uniquely enables all three wavelengths to be delivered as either individual treatments or simultaneously to target multiple indications in each session. This enables a more bespoke approach, extends the range of treatment options available and ensures superior results with reduced treatment time.
• Targets multiple indications in one session
• Increases efficacy and accelerates results
• Extends the range of treatment options
• Enables a bespoke treatment approach
