Dermalux LED Phototherapy
HOW DOES PHOTOTHERAPY WORK?
While we often associate light exposure with negative effects such as skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D, provides energy and serotonin. It can also encourage cell growth and collagen rejuvenation.
The spectrum of light is grouped into different categories, some you can see, such as red and blue light, and some are invisible such as UV and near-infrared. The differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the spectrum you’re exposed to. Different types of light stimulate different responses, so while ongoing exposure to UV is very damaging, controlled levels of near-infrared, blue and red light are clinically proven to be beneficial.
Using LEDs to deliver specific types of light can provide that control, helping to maximise their effects.
DERMALUX LED PHOTOTHERAPY
The leading light in LED phototherapy Dermalux uses three, evidence-based wavelengths of near- infrared, blue and red light which are absorbed into the skin at different levels. The wavelengths provide energy and stimulate a variety of natural processes of the skin such as:
- Activating fibroblasts, which improve the structure of the skin
- Increasing the production of collagen and elastin, which makes skin firmer
- Speeding up the skins natural healing and reducing inflammation
- Improving the appearance of spots and reducing bacteria that causes acne
Dermalux uses the highest quality LEDs, expertly aligned helping to deliver each wavelength at a specific, measured energy output, intensity and dose. Uniquely, Dermalux uses leading-edge LED technology, which allows all three wavelengths to be used at the same time. This means you can enjoy enhanced results, while still keeping treatment times to a minimum.
