Medically certified and clinically proven, your skin will receive a healthy dose of safe light to encourage cell regeneration and repair.

An incredible treatment option for acne, problem and scarred skin, LED Phototherapy uses the power of blue, red and near infrared light to achieve advanced skin rejuvenation. Collagen and elastin are boosted, hydration is improved and circulation is enhanced. Win, win, win!

Treatment Details

Multi-Award winning Dermalux LED Phototherapy is the leading, non-invasive treatment harnessing the power and beauty of light for visibly radiant, rejuvenated and refined skin. Dermalux combines clinically proven wavelengths of light with the latest generation LED technology to deliver safe, pain-free and effective results for a wide range of skin conditions without any post-treatment downtime. 

After just one treatment, Dermalux instantly energises skin cells to revitalise acne prone and problem complexions. A course of treatments offers long-lasting ,visible results, stimulating the skin’s natural rejuvenation and repair processes to accelerate cell renewal, calm problem skin conditions and promote healthy-looking skin.

To explain the wonders of this ‘enlightening’ treatment in a bit more detail, phototherapy occurs naturally all around us. Our cells’ absorbance is influenced by light and light can have many positive effects on our epidermis. Different wavelengths stimulate different responses in the skin. LED Phototherapy targets beneficial wavelengths into the skin’s deepest layers using its concentrated light to energise cells and stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process. Skin cells that are energised function better and can regenerate up to 200% faster! 

This amazing cell regeneration process stimulates impressive healing and repair responses within the epidermis, creating a clearer, calmer and more vibrant complexion.

Results Driven Treatments at SkinSpirit

LED Phototherapy isn’t just one of our favourite treatments at SkinSpirit, but a favourite of many A-list celebrities around the world too. Medically certified and scientifically proven, the acne-healing powers of LED Phototherapy, particularly the blue ‘antibacterial’ light, are impressive. This treatment offers a non-invasive, pain free option for the treatment of acne and scarring. 

The ideal treatment to be enjoyed after most other facial treatments at SkinSpirit, a 20-minute LED Phototherapy session can boost and enhance your results. Also ideal to be used as a regular stand-alone treatment to improve the health and appearance of acne, problem, congested and scarred skin. 

Your therapist will formulate a treatment programme to support your aesthetic goals, and may recommend home care products to expedite and enhance results.

What our customers are saying?

An LED Phototherapy session at SkinSpirit will usually last around 20 minutes. It’s a pain free, relaxing process where you can simply lay back and let the Dermalux work its magic. 

At SkinSpirit we usually recommend 4- 6 initial treatments, spaced 2 weeks apart. This may vary depending on your skin type, concerns and goals. Your therapist will devise a bespoke treatment plan during your initial consultation. Regular maintenance treatments may be recommended.

Science & Technology
Dermalux Tri-Wave systems combine Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm which are the most internationally recognised and clinically evidenced wavelengths for the LED Phototherapy treatment.

The Dermalux systems have pre-set treatment programmes for a range of skin-specific conditions, combination treatments and post-treatment protocols. Each pre-set programme delivers a specific combination of wavelengths at an optimised power output and dose targeted to the individual skin condition. Applying all three wavelengths simultaneously reduces treatment time and is proven to promote maximum cell activation for superior and lasting results.

Each wavelength of light is absorbed by a different target to stimulate specific skin-enhancing processes.

Dermalux®Blue Light 415nm

Blemish fighting blue light targets bacteria in the sebaceous glands which causes spots. When bacteria absorbs blue light it triggers a natural photochemical reaction releasing singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen has a powerful antibacterial action to help eliminate spots whilst being gentle on the skin. With continued use, this clarifying effect can help in the prevention of breakouts.

Dermalux®Red Light 633nm

Rejuvenating red light is absorbed in the mitochondria, the ‘cell powerhouse’ responsible for the production of essential energy (ATP) to make our cells function. Red light supercharges our cell energy triggering a cascade of skin-enhancing effects; accelerating cell renewal, boosting collagen and elastin synthesis and increasing hydration levels for a smoother, more youthful and revitalised complexion.

Dermalux®Near Infrared Light 830nm

Regenerating Near Infrared light is absorbed in the skin's deepest layers and stimulates skin cell activity with advanced rejuvenation benefits. Increased blood circulation brings vital oxygen and nutrients to accelerate repair, calm irritation and build strength and integrity for sensitive skin conditions. Enhanced cell metabolism can also help to reduce the appearance of age spots and pigmentation.

 

Pre & Post Treatment Care

Please ensure that your skin is free from makeup and any SPF creams before your treatment. Freshly exfoliated skin may help you achieve the best results from your session. 

LED Phototherapy doesn’t cause any side-effects and you are free to return to your normal activities after your appointment. We do recommend you stay well hydrated and use any skincare products recommended by your therapist.
