What is Dermalux LED Phototherapy?

Dermalux is a multi award-winning UK manufacturer and five-time winner of Best Treatment at the Aesthetic Awards.  Dermalux's patented LED Phototherapy is a clinically proven, non-invasive treatment that harnesses the therapeutic benefits of light energy for natural skin rejuvenation and healing. 

Dermalux LED Phototherapy is the application of unique combinations of beneficial wavelengths of Blue, Red and Near Infrared light that have clinically proven skin enhancing benefits.  Skin cells absorb the light energy, resulting in them functioning better and renewing up to 200% faster, accelerating skin regeneration and repair.

 

What skin conditions/issues does Dermalux LED Phototherapy treat?

Medically CE certified for the treatment of Acne, Psoriasis, wound healing and musculoskeletal pain, Dermalux LED Phototherapy also targets dryness, sensitive skin, pigmentation, redness and skin rejuvenation by kick starting cell regeneration. 

A relaxing, pain-free treatment with proven mood-enhancing effects, Dermalux will boost the vitality of your skin and give you a glow and radiance.

What happens during a Dermalux LED Phototherapy treatment?

​After cleansing the skin, goggles are applied to protect the client's eyes from the light.  The Dermalux canopy is then placed over the treatment area and the treatment plan is selected and started.  The stand-alone treatment time is 30 minutes, or 20 minutes following another procedure, such as a treatment facial.  During this time the client is able to enjoy a warming sensation on their face, and some relaxation time.  Following the Dermalux treatment, iS Clinical cosmeceutical skincare products are applied to treat and protect your skin. 

What results can be expected following a Dermalux LED Phototherapy treatment?

Dermalux boosts the complexion and gives skin a glow and vitality, skin tone appears more even and smoother.  A single treatment is ideal before a special event, or in combination with other treatments and medi-facials to boost results and calm redness and irritation.  A treatment course will increase the skin's hydration, control blemishes and boost collagen production, helping with aging, acne, psoriasis, dryness, sensitivity and pigmentation.
