Consultation

Prior to treatment, a consultation with our skin expert, or a highly experienced member of our team at Face Medical Clinic is essential. Dermalux LED can be used to treat a range of skin complaints, including sun damage, acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and scarring, amongst other conditions. The type of light, and to what level it is required, used in the Dermalux LED treatment must be completely personalised to you. A consultation will allow our team to prepare adequately for this, and suggest other treatments that can be used in conjunction with Dermalux LED that can allow you to get the best possible results for you.

The Procedure

The Dermalux LED Phototherapy procedure involves exposing skin to low levels of light energy. This stimulates cellular processes in the skin, providing an energy boost to stilled or slowed functions. Skin cells that have been energised regenerate at an increased paced, which improves the overall look of the skin, transforming a dull or tired complexion until it is healthy, radiant, and far more youthful looking. Dermalux LED uses three types of LED light, either singularly and in combination. Red LED light is used treat fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tones, and provides a soothing and hydrating boost to the skin. Blue LED light has anti-bacterial properties, and is ideal for treating acne and congested skin. Blue light also provides a skin tightening effect, and can be used for the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder, and bacterial and viral infections. A combination of blue and red LED light is ideal for the treatment of scarring and inflammatory acne, as it reduces swelling and inflammation. Infra red LED light may also be used to tackle problems in the deeper layers of the skin, and is the most intense form of Dermalux LED treatment. Dermalux® Near Infrared 830nm Repairing Near Infrared light is the most deeply absorbed wavelength and works synergistically with Red light for optimum rejuvenation results.Exposure to Near Infrared light at 830nm triggers the skins anti-inflammatory processes to accelerate repair and reduce irritation and redness. Near Infrared light builds strength and integrity for compromised, environmentally damaged and sensitive skin conditions. It is also clinically effective in the treatment of age spots and hyperpigmentation. • Advanced skin rejuvenation benefits • Relieves redness and irritation • Reduces pigmentation • Promotes healthy skin • Ideal for the most sensitive skins

Aftercare

It is safe to go in the sun and to apply makeup immediately after this treatment, as long as you are wearing an SPF of at least 50. The effects of Dermalux LED treatment are instantaneous, however, as a natural stimulation process, the full extent of the results of the treatment will reveal itself over a period of time, sometimes up to 6 weeks after the course of the treatment has finished! A course of treatment is recommended for long-lasting results with the best possible outcome for all skin types and conditions.

FAQs

What happens during Dermalux LED Therapy?

When you arrive at Face Medical Clinic for your Dermalux LED phototherapy treatment, we will gently cleanse your skin, ensuring we remove any sunscreen, makeup and skincare products; this is necessary to allow the beneficial light waves to penetrate your skin. Then we exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells that are known to reflect the light. We may apply a topical serum to enhance results in some cases.

Protective eyewear is required to be worn by the patient in order to protect your eyes from the LED lights. For 20-30 minutes, you can relax while a special overhead panel directs light waves onto your skin. The treatment is completely pain-free, and will give your skin a natural, glowing boost.

When will I see results?

With LED therapy, the results are visible immediately. After just one treatment, you will notice that your skin looks really hydrated, naturally radiant, and any redness should be calmed.

For longer lasting results, people may need several sessions as opposed to a single “skin pick-me-up session”. Treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results, and top-up treatments will likely be recommended.

Will I need to take time off after my treatment?

There is no downtime, so no, you won’t need to take any time off after your treatment!

How long should the results from Dermalux LED Therapy last?

The results of Dermalux™ LED phototherapy can last for several months when a patient has undergone treatment course. This said, it is always advised to have top-up treatments to maintain results. As light therapy does not harm the skin, there is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have.
