As an aesthetics clinic in Clapham Common, we work hard to create exceptional results for clients in and around the capital. One way we do just that is through our impressive Dermalux treatment, a form of LED light therapy which can trigger skin rejuvenation by activating its healing process. Find out more about treatment in today’s blog post.
So, what is Dermalux light therapy?
It’s a non-invasive treatment that can help with a wide range of conditions. In scientific terms, it uses ‘therapeutic light energy’ which stimulates and regulates cell processes. It uses a combination of wavelengths – represented by red and blue light – to achieve this.
How do the coloured lights work?
The blue light targets spot-causing bacteria and blemishes in the topmost layers of the skin (dermis). The mitochondria absorb the red light deep within the cells to boost the production of collagen, a key protein responsible for suppleness and firmness in the skin. There is also near-infrared used, which is the one that targets cell activity. Altogether, each layer of the skin is addressed through varying wavelengths, triggering different responses. In this way, Dermalux is clinically proven to be beneficial to the skin.
What does Dermalux treat?
There are three main areas of focus with this treatment, from skin scarring (think acne and psoriasis) to ageing (wrinkles and texture) and even health (through its detoxifying and circulation-boosting benefits). Treatment is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
Is Dermalux safe?
Absolutely. In fact, the brand states that no side effects were seen in over 3,000 clinical studies. The light treatment doesn’t generate any heat and you won’t risk skin damage.
What areas and concerns can I target?
Ageing is one of the big ones – especially with Dermalux’s impressive boosts to collagen and blood circulation. But, you’ll also see many people use Dermalux for skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea. Finally, it’s even been used for muscular and joint pain in a medical context.
How long does Dermalux take?
Treatment can often be carried out in as little as 30 minutes, with results lasting several months. However, this is assuming you’ve had a course of Dermalux treatments – and we can advise on how many we think you’ll need for your particular skin concern.
