Ever heard of LED for your skin? If you haven’t experienced it yet, you’ve been missing out on some serious glow-up magic! LED Light Therapy is an innovation that’s as relaxing as a mid-afternoon nap and as beneficial for your skin as a spa retreat. Today, we’re shining a light on all things LED Light Therapy, how it works, and why it’s a must-have upgrade for every skin treatment.
While LED, or Light Emitting Diode technology, seems futuristic, its origins trace back to NASA. Yep, space NASA. Intended to foster plant growth in the challenging conditions in space, researchers quickly recognised its potential in promoting wound healing of its astronauts. Fast forward to today, and the professional beauty industry touts LED Light Therapy as one of the most in-demand skin regeneration and rejuvenation treatments.
It operates on the principle of photobiomodulation. To break down this concept, we want you to think of LED as a skin workout. Just like our bodies feel invigorated after exercise, LED gives our skin cells an energising boost, helping them work better and faster. This skin-loving training session enhances collagen production, boosts cellular turnover, and, as we’ll get to in a moment, deliver visible improvements to various skin concerns.
Different wavelengths of light penetrate the skin at various depths, offering a range of benefits. Our Dermalux Flex LED technology delivers four skin restoration approaches and is the world’s highest-powered portable device (impressive, right?).
Blue 415nm: Blue Light is a renowned blemish battler targeting the skin’s outer layer. It eradicates the bacteria responsible for acne. Moreover, it relieves those battling inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea, eczema, and dermatitis, reducing redness and irritation.
Red 633nm: Red Light rejuvenates by stimulating cells’ mitochondria (the powerhouse). This boosts collagen and elastin production, essential proteins for skin’s firmness and elasticity. It addresses the signs of ageing, pigmentation, and revitalises dull skin, giving it a youthful glow.
Near-Infrared 830nm: Penetrating even deeper, the Near-Infrared Light acts as a multi-faceted healer. Its versatility is unmatched, from soothing inflamed skin and reducing hyperpigmentation to aiding in wound recovery and addressing muscle pain.
Tri-Wave: A harmonious blend of all three wavelengths, Red, Blue and Near-Infrared Light. Our Dermalux is the world’s only device that harnesses all three wavelengths simultaneously for a treatment that (literally) covers all bases!
Incorporating LED into your favourite skin treatment furthers its benefits, enhancing the hard work your therapist has done to treat and rejuvenate your complexion. When combined, the light enhances the absorption of active ingredients while simultaneously treating your skin concerns at a cellular level. The result? Brighter, healthier, and deeply rejuvenated skin.
As the gentle glow of the LED light envelops you, it offers a haven of relaxation. Many clients describe the experience as peaceful, with some even drifting into a restful nap, re-energising their mind, body, and skin.
Skin concerns on the body? No stress! LED’s potential spans the entire body. LED therapy is holistic, whether it’s treating body acne, fading sunspots, or even alleviating muscle aches (courtesy of NIR).
