Great skin doesn’t happen by chance.

Discover the benefits of Dermalux and find out how this award winning treatment can transform your skin.

LED is a technology that was first utilised by NASA for muscle regeneration and to speed up the healing of wounds as well as relieving discomfort associated with cancer treatments in the early 2000s.

But now, it has opened its doors to thousands of more uses.

Now surprisingly so, LED – not to be mixed with laser treatments – has been found to have numerous additional, and painless, benefits when different wavelengths of infrared light are exposed to skin.

What is LED Therapy?

LED therapy is based on the principle that living cells have the ability to absorb, and can be influenced by light.

The treatment involves exposure of the skin to low levels of beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which work to energise cellular functions to stimulate various cellular processes with therapeutic effects.

What effects does light exposure have?

While we often associate light exposure with negative effects such as skin damage, the right kinds of light has many positive influences on the body.

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.

It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin.

It can also promote healing, reduce inflammation and pain and prevent tissue damage.

LED lights will not photosensitise the skin and are deemed not carcinogenic. Treatments are pain free, calming and extremely beneficial to the skin.

What wavelengths are involved in phototherapy?

Dermalux system use only clinically proven wavelengths delivered at the optimised intensity enabling effective photobiomodulation of targeted cells and skin tissue with proven results.

Red 633nm – Naturally stimulates skin rejuvenation and is clinically proven to increase the body’s natural form of cellular energy which kick starts the cells to regenerate faster. Red light is absorbs by fibroblasts increasing the synthesis of collagen and elastin for smoother firmer skin.

Blue 415nm – Has powerful antibacterial properties and offers effective treatment for all grades of acne without irritation. Blue light interacts with the bacteria creating a photodynamic reaction which results in bacterial destruction, helping reduce sebum production

Near Infrared 830nm – Works synergistically with Red light for optimum rejuvenation results, and is the most deeply absorbed wavelength targeting inflammatory process cells to accelerate tissue healing and reduce scarring.

What does LED therapy do to your skin?

Dermalux use these wavelengths to heal and amend your skin, depending on your condition or concern. The LED wavelengths can increase collagen and elastin synthesis, reduce fine lines, improve complexion, stimulate circulation, restore radiance, reduce congesting and acne prone skin, regulate natural oil production, strengthen damaged capillaries, relieve pain and redness, and work as an advanced regenerating and healing treatment.
