Dermalux® LED Phototherapy
Voted 'Treatment of the Year' for 4 consecutive years by the prestigious Aesthetic Awards, Dermalux® combines clinically proven wavelengths of light with the latest generation LED technology to deliver safe and effective results for a wide range of skin conditions without discomfort or downtime.
LED Phototherapy is based on the principle that living cells are able to absorb and are influenced by light and the treatment has long been recognised for its regenerating and anti-inflammatory properties.
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 differences between the positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. On-going exposure to UV is very damaging but controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.
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 energises 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 effects of LED Phototherapy are a natural response similar to that of plant photo-synthesis through a process known as photobiomodulation

What happens during treatment?
Before beginning treatment your skin will be carefully cleaned, then you will be given protective eyewear which you should wear throughout the treatment. Then you simply lie back and relax for approximately 20 minutes while the Dermalux® works its magic.
LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive and pain-free treatment that promotes a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing whilst rejuvenating the skin. Any feeling of warmth or heat on the skin is most often due to the stimulation of blood circulation.
Immediately following treatment, you can expect your skin to have a healthy glow and any skin irritation or redness to be noticeably calmed. We advise you to apply suitable skin care products including sunscreen after treatment. Makeup can be applied as usual.
How often can I be treated?
We will discuss an individual treatment plan with you during your initial consultation.
A single session of Dermalux® is an ideal ‘pick me up’ to replenish vital skin hydration, restore radiance or simply to calm irritated skin.
How many treatments you need will depend on your age, skin type and skin condition. You will see the best results if you opt for a number of treatments in quick succession. We may also advise you to consider maintenance treatments to ensure long-lasting results.
Results of Dermalux® LED Phototherapy can be enhanced when used in combination with treatments such as Skin Peels and micro-needling.
