LED Therapy - MEDILUX
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been used for more than 40 years to speed wound healing, and for the past 10 or so years is being used in skin rejuvenation procedures. But how does LED work…..or is it as good as the claims suggest?
Researchers have discovered that during aging, water layers surrounding elastin fibers change and affect the elastin fibres, which may contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
By using high-intensity visible light from LEDs, researchers were able to change the molecular structure of the water layer to free up elastin. After nine weeks of daily treatment, participants had a noticeable reduction in wrinkles. The LED therapy led to rejuvenated, younger-looking, and more resilient skin, according to the researchers.
LED light therapy with the MEDILUX utilises different coloured, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs). These allow your clinician to create tailored LED services to address your specific skin concerns.
The MEDILUX offers ultimate versatility for unprecedented results:
BLUE LIGHT (415nm) - Reduces sebaceous activity and acne vulgar is. Works to clear congestion and kills acne causing bacteria.
GREEN LIGHT (520nm) - Assists with skin tone correction and aids detoxification to reduce redness and irritation for a balanced, calm complexion.
YELLOW LIGHT (590nm) - Stimulates collagen production and assists in would repair to naturally heal and regenerate the skin from within. Beneficial for Rosacea & post laser therapy.
RED LIGHT (633nm) - Increases blood circulation & lymphatic flow to encourage cellular renewal & promote a youthful complexion.
NEAR INFRARED LIGHT (830nm) - Increases white blood cell production to regenerate, rejuvenate, tighten & repair inflamed & ageing skin. Works to boost ATP for deep cellular rejuvenation and would healing.
LED light therapy is the perfect standalone treatment or in adjunct with other treatments for skin rejuvenation, acne, inflammation, rosacea.
At tWR LED treatments are either included or offered as an add on with all of our skin treatments — to help improve the efficacy of those treatments and take advantage of the collagen stimulating benefits of LED.
How do MEDILUX treatments work?
LED treatments with MEDILUX utilises 1500 powerful light emitting diodes ranging from blue to green, yellow, red & near-infrared. Each light wavelength targets different specific skin concerns and treatment is commonly used to address acne congestion, facial redness, pigmentation, uneven tone, fine lines, wrinkles & signs of ageing.
Are MEDILUX treatments suitable for me?
MEDILUX treatments are safe, comfortable and suitable for all skin types. During your consultation, a treatment plan will be discussed and tailored to your individual needs.
What is the difference between Red Light LED & Near Infrared LED?
Red light targets the dermal layers, providing excellent results in collagen and elastin synthesis. Near infrared light is able to penetrate even deeper in the dermis - reaching the subcutaneous layer of the skin and muscle to enable deep tissue repair and cellular regeneration.
