Dermalux® Flex LED Phototherapy
While we often associate light exposure with skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin and can also accelerate our skin’s natural repair processes.
The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of this beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which energise cellular functions to stimulate various cellular processes with therapeutic effects. Skin cells that are energised function better and regenerate faster which in turn leads to younger, healthy and radiant skin.
The number of treatments required for optimum results is subject to a number of factors including indication, lifestyle factors and other procedures that may be included in the overall treatment programme. This will be assessed during the consultation.
• Brand – Dermalux®
• Treatment Time – 20 - 30 minutes
• Treatments required – Varies to skin indication, intense up to 12 sessions
• Results – Depending on skin condition, improvement can be seen immediately
• Downtime – None
Am I suitable for treatment?
During your consultation appointment with Katrina Read, Independent Nurse Prescriber, you will complete a detailed medical history and assessment of your needs and expectations to ensure this is an appropriate treatment for you.
How does it work?
Dermalux® uses unique combinations of clinically proven Blue, Red and Near Infrared wavelengths.
Blue Light: anti-bacterial, treats spots, improves skin clarity, and calms problematic skin
Red Light: boosts collagen and elastin production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, increases hydration, evens skin tone and texture, and restores radiance
Near Infrared Light: advanced skin rejuvenation, calms redness and irritation, reduces age spots and pigmentation, restores skin health, treats sensitive skin
As the light triggers a whole cascade of skin enhancing processes, the benefits continue even after the treatment has finished.
Results with LED Phototherapy are cumulative and a course of treatments taken in close succession is recommended for optimum results. Results can last for several months and regular maintenance treatments offer lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin. It is also recommended in combination with skin treatments to enhance and accelerate results.
