How does the treatment work?
Your skin has the ability to absorb light energy and use it to stimulate or regulate essential cell processes. LED phototherapy is the application of beneficial wavelengths from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum, which have proven skin enhancing benefits. Skin cells that are energised function better and can renew up to 200% faster accelerating regeneration and repair.
Dermalux® uses a unique combination of clinically proven Blue, Red and Near Infrared wavelengths to boost collagen production (Near Infrared), increase hydration, calm redness and irritation (Red) and kill blemish causing bacteria (Blue). As the light triggers a whole cascade of skin enhancing processes, the benefits continue even after your treatment has finished.
What does the treatment involve?
The treatment is pain free and suitable for all skin types with an excellent safety profile and proven mood enhancing effects. Each treatment lasts up to 30 minutes and is a pleasant, relaxing experience in which you're placed under the light. It helps produce vitamin D, provides energy and serotonin. It can also encourage cell growth and collagen rejuvenation. Your practitioner will advise the best combination of light and course of treatment depending on the condition of your skin. There is zero downtime with this treatment, so once complete, you can simply get up and glow!
