Step into the Light….
For many, dull, problem skin and premature ageing can be a persistent bugbear. Lotions, potions and creams can certainly help, but at The Headland Spa there’s a new way to achieve naturally radiant, clearer skin: Dermalux® LED Phototherapy. “It’s a must have treatment for instantly revitalised, glowing skin” says Lucy Mingo, Spa Manager, who has seen the benefits of the treatment first-hand.
Combining revolutionary light technology with the latest skincare science, Dermalux® promotes skin rejuvenation at a cellular level. Excellent for acne and spot prone skin, as well as inflammatory conditions such as rosacea, redness, psoriasis and dermatitis, it’s a pain-free treatment without any downtime.
How does LED Phototherapy work?
Light exposure is typically associated with skin ageing and damage. However, whilst UV can be very damaging, controlled levels of Red, Blue and Near Infrared light can produce vitamin D, providing energy and serotonin, as well as accelerating tissue healing. By harnessing the power of three specifically chosen light waves, and applying them to the skin at clinically proven wavelengths, Dermalux® stimulates cellular reactions, recharging the cells and energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster, resulting in improved tissue repair and reduced inflammation.
Talk to me about results...
As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, our skin cells can find it difficult to renew normally. However, the light applied in Dermalux® LED session gives skin an energy boost and activates functions at a cellular level. Laboratory studies have shown that, when exposed to Dermalux LED waves, cells can regenerate between 150% and 200% faster than usual.
Taking this approach, Dermalux® successfully treats a variety of common skin conditions:
Dermalux® LED phototherapy reproduces the same properties of sunlight without the sun’s harmful UV light. Clinically proven to kill acne bacteria, phototherapy is an effective alternative if your skin does not respond to other acne treatments. Active acne will be visibly reduced is a few treatment sessions an, with continued use, LED will prevent facial acne returning.
Dermalux boosts collagen production which gives the skin its elasticity and youthful glow. Whether you’re concerned about lines, wrinkles or even age spots on your hands, Dermalux® can help. The effects of treatment are cumulative so your skin will continue to produce collagen for several months after a course of treatment. Time to say ‘hello’ to plumper, smoother skin with a more youthful appearance.
Rosacea leaves the skin flaky, dry and itchy with red patches. Hands and face are particularly prone to this condition but, worry not, LED Dermalux® treatment utilises Red and Near Infra-Red light to offer immediate relief. It safely reduces the appearance of blood vessels and, over time, makes your skin healthier and more resilient. It also ups the immunity levels.
Affecting around 3% of men and women in the UK, Psoriasis flare-ups can be unpredictable and uncomfortable. Creams are available to sooth the condition but they don’t always quash it. However, Dermalux® LED offers a relaxing, safe alternative for sensitive skin. By preventing bacterial infection and relieving itchiness, the UV free light stimulates the body’s own natural response for healing.
Will the results be seen straight away?
Dermalux® instantly revitalises tired, dull complexions. After just a single treatment your skin will be hydrated, plump and radiant. Any visible redness or irritation will be calmed and you’ll love the instant feeling of wellbeing as the stresses and strains of the day disappear. For results that can be seen for up to 4 to 6 weeks, a course of treatments is recommended.
As phototherapy does not harm the skin, there is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have, and treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results. Dermalux® can also be integrated with your regular skin treatments to optimise and accelerate results.
