What is Dermalux?
As the seasons change, it’s normal for our skin to take some time to adapt. One way to speed up this process is to consider a beauty treatment. Dermalux is a great option if your skin is looking dull, tired or you suffer from acne, eczema, psoriasis or scarring. In this blog, we’re answering that all important question, what is Dermalux?
What is Dermalux?
Dermalux is an LED phototherapy procedure that should be performed by a trained practitioner. This treatment is non-invasive and uses natural light to stimulate the skin which leads to a more rejuvenated appearance.
Due to areas of the face having varying needs, a range of blue and red lights are used both separately and combined. This is done to increase the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin. As we age, we stop producing collagen which is why our skin appears to age over time. These light therapies also help to improve the flow of oxygen and blood which helps to plump the skin.
It is necessary to use both blue and red LED lighting to target various concerns. The red light is used to support skin rejuvenation and can be used to ease inflammation associated with some skin conditions. The blue light helps to remove toxins from the skin and ease oiliness. The two lights work together to provide a great treatment for those suffering with dull skin.
What happens at my treatment?
Once you’ve decided that a Dermalux treatment will be beneficial to you, you will need to find a trained practitioner to carry out the treatment for you. After a consultation, you can be booked in for the treatment.
When you arrive for this beauty treatment, the practitioner will use a cleansing solution to ensure that your skin is free from any makeup and is clean. After this, they will use an exfoliator to remove any dead skin cells.
Due to the use of LED lighting, you will be required to wear protective eyewear during the treatment. You will be asked to lie down and the treatment should last approximately 20-30 minutes.
The nature of this treatment means that it requires absolutely no downtime, you are free to carry on with your day as you please. Following this treatment, you will be given all details regarding aftercare and are not required to avoid anything in particular. You will be given a 24 hour contact number just in case you have any concerns.
The results of your Dermalux treatment will be visible straight away. Your skin will appear more plump and much brighter. This is a great treatment for a bit of quiet time too, so you should leave your appointment feeling relaxed.
The results from this treatment can last several months. If you are utilising this treatment to help a skin condition it is a good idea to have multiple sessions in a short space of time to achieve optimum results. With good aftercare, your skin can be healthier and less inflamed.
