What Is It:
LED Phototherapy has long been known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties. LED (which, if you’re curious, stands for light-emitting diode) phototherapy devices emit varying wavelengths of light that can penetrate your skin to trigger changes at the molecular level. Cool, huh? Energy is absorbed into the skin to stimulate processes which have proven skin enhancing benefits. There are various light types (Blue, Red, Near-Infrared & Tri-Wave) which treat various skin conditions.
The best, most-studied of the LED lights are red and blue lights. Specific combinations of light stimulate collagen production, destroy acne causing bacteria, reduce inflammation, increase hydration, improve skin laxity, texture and clarity and ease muscular and joint pain.
DERMALUX BLUE 415nm
Blemish fighting blue light destroys the bacteria which causes spots and improves skin clarity without irritation. It also has a calming effect for problem skin conditions.
DERMALUX RED 633nm
Rejuvenating Red light energises cells to accelerate renewal, boost collagen and elastin production and increase hydration for smoother firmer skin. Ideal for restoring vitality and glow.
DERMALUX NEAR INFRARED 830nm
Regenerating Near Infrared light offers advanced rejuvenation benefits, promotes healthy skin, calms redness and irritation and helps to reduce pigmentation.
DERMALUX TRI-WAVE THERAPY
For enhanced and accelerated results, Dermalux therapy uniquely delivers multi- wavelength treatments which are tailored to your skin condition

What To Expect During Treatment:
You don't have to do much but lie there. We place LED panels a few inches away from the face. Eye protection is also placed as the lights are quite bright. We treat [the skin] for about 15 to 20 minutes. Your skin may look slightly red when the session ends however the treatment is extremely comfortable with no downtime at all. At first, it feels warm, but most people report liking the feeling. The light doesn't cause any burns or skin damage. It's pretty much painless, and if you like lights, the colours can even be relaxing.*
