What is LED Phototherapy?
LED Phototherapy is the application of low-level light energy delivered via a pure wavelength to stimulate a biological process with proven therapeutic effects. LED Phototherapy is well evidenced for its regenerative and anti-inflammatory benefits without creating trauma making it safe and suitable for all skin types.
The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum. It is a non-invasive treatment that delivers clinically proven therapeutic light energy for rejuvenating and corrective benefits.
Specific wavelengths are absorbed by the skin to stimulate cell renewal and collagen production, resolve problem skin conditions such as acne and redness and accelerate skin healing. It is a safe and pain free treatment without downtime.
How does LED Phototherapy work?
The Dermalux Flex MD delivers Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm which are the industry leading and most clinically evidenced wavelengths for the LED Phototherapy treatment.
Treatment sessions will typically be 20-30 minutes depending on area of body being treated and whether this is a combination treatment.
Each treatment session may use a single wave length or a combination of these specific wavelengths.
Blue Light 415nm (penetration up to 1mm)?
KEY MECHANISM: ANTI-BACTERIAL
Blemish fighting blue light destroys the bacteria which causes acne and helps in the prevention of breakouts.
Blue light is absorbed by p.acnes bacteria and triggers a natural photochemical reaction releasing singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen has a powerful antibacterial action to help eliminate spots whilst being gentle on the skin. It also helps to balance oil production and improve skin clarity.
Applied in combination with Red and Near Infrared light, the Dermalux Flex MD treatment offers enhanced results for acne and is excellent as a post treatment procedure to help minimise breakouts and reduce redness.
Red Light 633nm (penetration 2 to 3mm)?
KEY MECHANISM: REJUVENATION AND CELL RENEWAL
Rejuvenating Red light accelerates cell renewal and repair, boosting collagen and elastin synthesis for smoother firmer skin.
Red light is absorbed in the cell mitochondria and stimulates the synthesis of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), an essential energy for cellular function. Supercharging our cells triggers a cascade of beneficial biological reactions which result in a range skin enhancing effects. Skin cells that are energised function better can regenerate up to 200% faster.
Red light is potently absorbed by fibroblasts increasing collagen and elastin synthesis and boosting hydration levels. Improved blood flow brings increased tissue oxygenation to accelerate repair whilst stimulation of the lymphatic systems helps with detoxification.
Red light offers immediate improvement in skin tone, hydration and vitality whilst the beneficial light simultaneously stimulates cellular processes for long lasting benefits in appearance and health of the skin.
Near Infrared Light 830nm (penetration 5 to 10mm)?
KEY MECHANISM: WOUND HEALING ACTION
Near Infrared light is absorbed in the skins deepest layers and works synergistically with Red light for optimum rejuvenation results.
Exposure to Near Infrared light at 830nm increases blood circulation bringing vital oxygen and nutrients to help modulate inflammation, accelerate wound healing, calm irritation and reduce redness.
Near Infrared light builds strength and integrity for compromised, environmentally damaged and sensitive skin conditions. It is also clinically effective in the treatment of hyperpigmentation.
When will I see results?
Following a single Dermalux Flex MD session, clients can expect immediate improvement in skin tone, hydration and luminosity whilst the beneficial light simultaneously stimulates deeper cell processes for longer lasting benefits in the skin. For sensitive skin conditions, the Flex MD offers relief with redness and irritation.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
For excellent results a course of 10-12 Flex MD treatments are generally recommended for all indications at a frequency of 2 sessions per week. Clients will be reviewed at the end of the course to assess progress and further treatments may then be advised as required.
Some people benefit greatly from a once a month maintenance session while others may benefit greatly from a short booster of 3 sessions before a special event.
This treatment also works extremely well in combination with all our advanced cosmetic procedures to either prepare skin before treatment or to help speed up healing time post treatment.
