DERMALUX FAQ'S

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

It’s recommended 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 skin’s radiance.

What does light therapy do?

LED Light Therapy is great in every single facial to calm any areas of irritation and it’s also brilliant at brightening the skin. 

When used consistently, over time, LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles.
A course of treatments offers corrective and long-lasting results, although you’ll be able to see a difference after the first session.

What are the benefits of light therapy?
Light therapy for the skin can speed up wound healing and improve skin conditions such as rosacea or dermatitis. It’s also used to improve acne and as anti-ageing device.

How Does Light Therapy work?
LED Light Therapy uses colour wavelengths of visible light which have specific skin benefits. As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.
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 stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation and accelerates tissue repair. During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath a light screen while the device does all the work.

What types of light are there and what do they do?

BLUE LIGHT

This is a powerful antibacterial properties for the treatment of acne without irritation, reduces oil production, prevents future breakout and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis.

 

RED LIGHT

This increases natural hydration levels, reduced redness and inflammation, shrinks the appearance of pores, regulates oil production, improves circulation, accelerates skin repair as is a medically-approved treatment for rosacea.


NEAR INFRA-RED LIGHT
This is the most deeply absorbed wavelength, it increases cell permeability and absorption, smooths lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity, reduces pain and inflammation, accelerates wound healing and heals cystic acne.

 


How long does it take to work?
You can see results from the first treatment, however we would recommend a minimum course of eight. If you would like to super charge your skin for specific skin concerns, an intensive course of twelve treatments is advised close together. 

 


What skin types should try light therapy?
Light therapy is good for all skin types, literally everyone, and incredible for rosacea.

Does it hurt?
No, LED light therapy is completely non-invasive and does not hurt. All you'll feel is a tiny bit of warmth.

Can you get a tan from light therapy?
Light Therapy doesn't use UV light so there's no risk of tanning whatsoever.
