Advanced LED Phototherapy
WHAT IS DERMALUX?
Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy is a multi-award winning, clinically proven treatment that addresses a variety of skin concerns. It uses light to speed up the skin’s natural process of rejuvenation and repair. Some of the conditions that can improve with a course of Dermalux are:
- Ageing skin
- It can also be used following a laser procedure such an the CO2 laser to speed up healing.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE USED FOR?
Dermalux is used to revitalise a dull and tired complexion – and has instant results. A course of treatment offers long lasting results, stimulating the skin’s natural rejuvenation and repair processes to promote healthy looking skin, accelerate cell renewal and resolve a range of skin concerns.
Skin conditions occur because healthy cells are unable to renew and repair themselves. Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy utilises particular wavelengths of light that are scientifically proven to accelerate cellular repairing processes and collagen production. Some scientific studies have concluded that skin cells can repair themselves up to twice as fast when subject to particular wavelengths of light. Quite simply, the treatment causes your skin to rejuvenate and heal faster.
There are three variations of Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy which are suitable for treating specific skin conditions. They are: Dermalux™ LED Red, Dermalux™ LED Blue, and Dermalux™ LED Near Infra-Red. Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy is recommended for the treatment of:
- Acne and spots
- Skin rejuvenation
- Environmentally damaged skin
- Pigmentation, rosacea and redness
- Eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
- Restoring radiance
WHO IS THE TREATMENT SUITABLE FOR?
It’s a treatment that is suitable for all skin types and conditions. However, if you are on a particular medication that causes photosensitivity you will not be able to have the treatment. It is especially effective at treating acne.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Your therapist will prepare the area to be treated with a thorough cleanse. She will then position the machine over the area and turn it on. You will feel like the sun is shining on your face and it should be relaxing. The Dermalux treatment is usually around 20 minutes. Your therapist may use different light modes depending on what you are having the treatment for. These are:
Dermalux™ LED Red which has been specifically developed to have an anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It’s a fantastic treatment for people with sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
Dermalux™ LED Blue which has substantial anti-bacterial properties that cleanse and purify acne to regulate oil production in the skin. A perfect treatment for those who suffer with regular breakouts.
Dermalux™ LED Near Infra-Red which is absorbed in the skin’s deepest layers and stimulates cellular activity with advanced rejuvenation benefits. It also increases blood circulation, which brings vital oxygen and nutrients to help your skin repair itself and calm irritation as well as make your skin stronger.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OR RISKS?
The treatment process is completely pain free. Some patients even find it relaxing. There’s also no downtime.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I TYPICALLY EXPECT?
The results of Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy treatment are immediately visible. Irritation and redness of the skin is soothed, creating a radiant and hydrated complexion, making the skin look youthful and healthy. Results usually last for several months, but as with most skin treatments, maintenance sessions may be required further down the line.
There is no downtime following a Dermlux treatment and no specific aftercare.
The ultimate in skin rejuvenation, this safe, non-invasive, non-thermal treatment uses Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to emit safe light that is absorbed by the skin. LED energizes the skins cells similar to the way the sun energizes plants through photosynthesis. The result is natural skin rejuvenation resulting in glowing, radiant skin.
The complex interaction of red, blue, amber and green lights are proven to dramatically increase cellular function, improve skin hydration and elasticity, reduce acne, breakouts and minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Treatment options include:
- Anti-Ageing – To minimise lines & wrinkles
- Anti-Bacterial – Fantastic for congested or acne prone skin
- Anti-Inflammatory – Benefits eczema, rosacea & sensitive skin types
- Pigmentation – including: Age spots, acne marks & freckles
Bio-Synthesis LED is non-invasive with no downtime so you walk out looking and feeling great. You will see immediate results – after the first treatment the skin feels tighter, more alive due to the increased circulation, oxygenation and moisture. You will also notice a softening of the lines and folds, an increase of inner skin firmness as a result and healthy glow and skin rejuvenation.
Bio-Synthesis LED (light emitting diode) technology, a scientific process that uses wavelengths in the visible light spectrum to send calibrated packets of light into the dermal layer, setting off a frenzy of cellular activity to produce softer, more youthful looking skin.
What results can be achieved?
The body is made up of cells that are generally capable of healing and reproducing on their own using naturally occurring cellular energy known as adenosine triphosphate or ATP. When the skin is damaged, ATP stimulates cell regeneration to heal and restore the injured area.
Factors such as poor nutrition, a person’s age, and the general condition of the skin determine how slow or how fast cells may heal. Scientific studies also found that light can stimulate the production of ATP for better cell renewal otherwise known as photo rejuvenation. Skin care specialists take advantage of the therapeutic effects of light by using Bio-Synthesis LED (for Light Emitting Diode Technology) to heal skin conditions during a light therapy session. Not just any light ray may be used to stimulate skin cells. There are harmful rays that can burn the skin or cause skin cancer. Bio-Synthesis LED is ideal for light therapy because it emits a low level power that does not irritate or burn the skin.

- Blemished and oily skin, recent acne scars

How many treatments will I need?
Bio-Synthesis LED is a truly amazing treatment that works in a gradual way. It is safe and can be used regularly long term to prevent aging. It is recommended to have a course of 6-12 treatments done weekly to bi-weekly. Once desired results are achieved it is highly recommended to have treatments done fortnightly to monthly to prevent aging. This treatment is the perfect treatment to have in combination with other treatments, as a stand alone treatment or received between other treatments.
