This is a very relaxing treatment, lying under the warm light of the Dermalux is not unlike basking in the sun! This treatment is a great one-off skin boost before an event (especially when combined with one of our facials or peels) or Dermalux treatments can be taken as a course to treat a specific skin concern.
Red light penetrates deep into the skin improving tone, reducing lines and promoting the production of collagen and elastin.

Dermalux is a non-invasive phototherapy which uses non-thermal light energy to promote skin rejuvenation and repair.
Many people notice that their skin feels significantly better after sitting in the sun. However, as we all know, prolonged exposure to sunlight can have a detrimental impact on our skin’s health. Dermalux avoids the problems associated with sunlight by using specifically selected red and blue light.
Fighting the signs of aging and inflammation, red LED light has advantages for all skin types. Red light penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate fibroblast cells which are important for creating collagen and elastin. These are essential for healthy skin. In addition, red light increases hydration levels, regulates the skin’s oil production and speeds up skin repair.
Dermalux’s red light is complemented by blue light which is renowned for its antibacterial properties. In particular, blue light is great for treating acne and problem skin as it kills P. acnes bacteria with no irritation. As well as treating current acne, Dermalux’s blue light can help prevent future breakouts.
Near Infrared light perfectly complements the red light to provide the best rejuvenation results. It is the most deeply absorbed of the three wave lengths and is notes for its anti-inflammatory effect. This makes it particularly beneficial to those who have rosacea and acne. This wavelength is clinically proven to treat hyperpigmentation.
Is Dermalux phototherapy safe?
Yes, Dermalux is clinically proven to be a safe treatment. Dermalux does not use heat or harmful UV rays so it will not damage your skin.
How long before I see results?
Dermalux usually has immediate visible results and you should see improving results for up to 6 weeks after a course of treatments.
Does it hurt?
This treatment is actually very relaxing and it can increase serotonin levels.
Are there any side effects?
Unlike more invasive procedures, there is no irritation or downtime associated with Dermalux.
Is there any specific aftercare?
No. However, if you use Dermalux in combination with a light amplifier, you will be extra sensitive to sunlight for the next 48 hours. Therefore, it is important that you use high SPF sunscreen (at least SPF 40), avoid exposure to sunlight or bright indoor lights and wear a hat if you go outdoors. It is also recommended that you wear mineral makeup immediately after treatment if you want to wear makeup.
