LED Phototherapy

The Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive hand and facial treatment that uses LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin.

Your questions answered

Your doctor may recommend light therapy for skin rejuvenation, sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, sensitive and inflammatory conditions, wound healing and scarring as well as anyone looking to restore the skin’s radiance.

LED Phototherapy is also often used as a standalone treatment in conjunction with skin treatments that have some downtime, as it helps reduce redness and bruising, and can speed up skin recovery and enhance results.

Living cells are able to absorb light of different colours (wavelengths), and respond in different ways to each different light spectrum. The skin uses the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, or, in the case of treating acne, kill bacteria. The energy activates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair.

Light exposure is often associated with negative aspects such as skin aging, but in fact, exposure to certain parts of the light spectrum can be highly beneficial.

We need light exposure for production of Vitamin D, and it can also influence energy and serotonin levels in the body. In the field of skin science, controlled exposure to blue, red and near-red light plays an important role in accelerating the skin’s natural repair processes. Skin cells that have been energised with light function more effectively and can regenerate faster which can lead to healthier, younger looking and more radiant skin.

During a treatment, you simply lie underneath a light screen while the device does all the work.

In order to achieve optimal results, the recommendation is to do up to 3 treatments a week to start with. This means that a course of treatments can be quite intensive. Courses of treatment are completely personalised, and will be discussed with you during your consultation with your doctor.

You can expect to see improvement in skin tone, hydration and overall radiance after only a single Dermalux® treatment, with ongoing improvement over the next few days. Results will continue to improve after completion of a course of treatments, and results are expected to last for several months. Regular maintenance treatments can help to ensure healthier skin with lasting improvements in texture, tone and quality of your healthier skin.

Our three bands of light

The Dermalux® Flex combines 3 clinically proven bands of light into 7 highly researched protocols:

Red Light

This light is highly anti-inflammatory and helps to heal irritated and damaged skin, making it a useful component of acne management, in combination with blue and infra-red light. It is also used in anti-ageing treatments as it helps with:

  • Increasing production of fibroblasts and collagen
  • Improvements in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing circulation between blood and tissue cells
  • Protecting cells from damage

Blue Light

Blue light is often included as one of the modalities to help treat acne. It helps to kill the bacteria (P.acnes) and reduce the inflammation associated with acne.

Near Infrared light

Near infrared light is very calming, and helps the body to produce serotonin. It is often used to combat seasonal affective disorder in those who feel down during the grey winter months.
