What is LED Phototherapy?

January 2, 2019

 

 

 

 Dermalux LED Phototherapy is the industry-leading light therapy treatment which rejuvenates, repairs and boosts skin giving you an instant radiant glow. 

 

So how does it work?

 

We all know that when we expose our skin to a UV light, the skin will either turn red or brown. This is because UV light stimulates our melanocyte skin cells which produces pigment. 

 

LED phototherapy works on a similar principle, exposing the skin to three different wavelengths to promote positive responses and better skin health.  

 

Dermalux LED red light, is absorbed by fibroblasts in the dermis, increasing collagen and elastin synthesis and boosting natural hydration levels, improving blood flow to the epidermis for increased tissue oxygenation giving a brighter complexion instantly.

 

Dermalux LED blue light offers a gentle antibacterial action without irritation and destroys blemish causing bacteria.

 

Dermalux Near-Infrared light builds and strengthens compromised, inflamed or sensitive skin conditions. Near infrared is well evidenced for its anti-inflammatory and healing benefits and is excellent for building the integrity of the skin.

 

Why is it great for anti-ageing?

 

The epidermis, (the top layer) is made up of 5 layers, from living skin cells at the bottom to compacted dead skin cells on the top. The epidermis doesn’t have its own blood supply, so it relies on an ‘epidermal junction’ which holds the epidermis to the dermis, (the lower skin layer).

 

As the skin ages, this contact is compromised and subsequently delivery of vital nutrients and poor cellular function leads to an aged appearance and dull lifeless skin.  As we age, we also produce more enzymes which attack the fibroblast cells in the dermis that break down the collagen and elastin leading to fine lines and slack skin. Dermalux LED stimulates blood flow bringing nutrients to the skin, giving you a youthful glow. 

 

Why is it great for Acne?

 

Exposure to Blue light destroys blemish causing bacteria. It also helps to balance sebum (oil) production and improve skin clarity. Combined with Red and Near Infrared light, LED photo-therapy helps minimise breakouts and reduce redness.
