How does LED work?

LED is the latest treatment to join our menu and is used to promote a wide range of benefits for all skin types. It induces collagen production, improves skin healing and can be used alone or in conjunction with any skin or injectables treatment to maximise results.

Today we will explain how it works and why you should be adding it to your treatment plan!

What is LED?

Light Emitting Diode (LED) was originally developed by NASA for plant growth and healing experiments in space and has been used safely in aesthetics for over 15 years.

Dermalux LED Phototherapy is a non-invasive, pain-free treatment that uses clinically proven therapeutic light energy to trigger the skin's natural rejuvenation and repair processes.

During this relaxing treatment, you can sit back and relax as your skin absorbs the energising light to kick-start cell regeneration, calm irritation or restore radiance.

Each treatment lasts up to 30 minutes and with no downtime, it can easily be added to the busiest of schedules.

What are the benefits?

The Dermalux Flex has 3 different wavelengths, offering benefits for an array of skin types and concerns. The clinically proven Blue 415 nm, Red 633 nm and Near Infrared 830 nm treatment can be delivered via a single wavelength or combined to treat multiple concerns at once.

  • RED 633 NM: the rejuvenating light. Accelerates cell renewal and repair.

  • BLUE 415 NM: the blemish-fighting light. Aids in the treatment and prevention of acne.

  • NEAR-INFRARED 830NM: the healing light. Stimulates skin repair and reduces irritation and redness.

At Lux, we have 7 different treatment protocols available that can be customised to your unique skin needs. LED treatments are safe and effective for all skin types, including sensitive.

What happens during a treatment?

Before beginning your LED treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped. If you are having other skin treatments, these will be performed first.

We will then put on goggles, place the LED device over your face and turn it on. From there, you can just lay back, relax and enjoy the warm, calming sensation!

After your treatment, serums, moisturisers and SPF will be applied.

How do I add it to my treatment plan?

Our LED treatment can be used as a standalone facial or combined with many other treatments.

For new skin clients, a weekly LED treatment is a great way to improve barrier function and prepare the skin for more advanced treatments. It can also be used for those who are time-poor as a quick skin pick-me-up. LED has no downtime so it is perfect as a lunchtime treat or before a special event.

We also recommend adding LED to any of our facials and peels to maximise results, or in conjunction with skin needling to reduce inflammation and promote healing. This additional 15 minutes will enhance your treatment and provide a relaxing experience.

Our injectables clients can also utilise LED to minimise swelling, bruising and redness. This is a great idea for anyone with a busy lifestyle who doesn’t have time for additional downtime!
