Dermalux LED Light Therapy
Dermalux is at the cutting edge of LED phototherapy, the completely non- invasive treatment of skin conditions using nothing but light. Working on the principle that our cells absorb light, there are many benefits to having light therapy on the skin and body.
With no downtime and no contra indications, this is a superb treatment that can be used on everyone and in conjunction with any aesthetic treatment. It can also be used post-treatment to calm the skin and reduce inflammation, redness and downtime after medical aesthetic treatments.
During your treatment, the skin is exposed to low levels of good light from the infrared part of the light spectrum according to what your skin needs – not the kind of light you usually associate with pigmentation and damage. The treatment energises the cells to promote positive function resulting in therapeutic effects. This can lead to younger, healthy and radiant skin.
Regular Dermalux LED Light Therapy treatments are also used to help many skin conditions such as; psoriasis, acne and blemishes, rosacea and redness, pigmentation, collagen stimulation, and for general skin rejuvenation.
The Flex MD is in fact the only LED Phototherapy system in the world to be medically certified for the treatment of Psoriasis.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMALUX LED PHOTOTHERAPY?
Dermalux LED Light Therapy uses tri-wave technology and the combination of Red, Blue and Near-Infrared light waves to:
Rejuvenate skin by increasing fibroblast activity, releasing growth factors and stimulating collagen and elastin production
Brighten skin tone and improve skin texture
Reduce acne by destroying bacteria on the skin and improving inflammatory lesions
Reduce skin redness by stimulating an inflammatory response similar to the first phase of wound-healing, causing collagen synthesis and tissue proliferation
WHAT DOES DERMALUX LED PHOTOTHERAPY DO?
LED Phototherapy is the application of beneficial light to our skin to stimulate various cellular processes to produce a therapeutic effect.
Dermalux LED Light Therapy uses evidence-based wavelengths delivered at a skin-enhancing intensity and dose to activate cellular renewal and repair, fuel the manufacture of collagen and elastin, reduce inflammation and destroy acne causing bacteria.
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.
A different combination of the lights will be used during the treatment depending on your skin and the results you are looking to achieve.
Dermalux can be used on acne to kill acne bacteria.
Active acne will be visibly reduced in a few acne treatment sessions through the use of Dermalux and, with continued use, LED will prevent facial acne returning.
The treatment can also be used to help treat Rosacea, reducing the appearance of red blood vessels, and Psoriasis, by preventing bacterial infection and relieving itchiness, the UV free light stimulates the body’s own natural response for healing.
Following your treatment, there are some immediate visible changes in the skin but most changes occur naturally over a series of treatments. During your consultation, your therapist will advise the best combination of light and course of treatment depending on the condition of your skin.
Post Treatment Advice
Following your LED Phototherapy treatment, apply the recommended skin care products which should include an SPF protection (day time only). Your therapist can give you guidance on suitability of your current skin care products during the consultation.
Make-up can be applied immediately following LED Phototherapy, however, we recommend the use of mineral based or non-comedogenic formulations that allow the skin to breathe.
Drink plenty of water to maintain hydration levels and aid the lymphatic system to eliminate toxins.
In the unlikely event that any adverse reaction occurs following treatment, please contact us within 24 hours for advice.

Dermalux LED Light Therapy
Dermalux is a non-invasive treatment that uses the most clinically proven wavelengths to energise cells and trigger the skins natural rejuvenating and healing processes to treat a wide range of conditions.
There is no risk of irritation, side effects or down time that may be associated with more invasive procedures. There have been no reported side effects in over 3,000 published clinical studies. However, it is important to be aware that photosensitive medications or health conditions may be contraindicated to the LED treatment due to increased sensitivity to light exposure.
Yes. Dermalux has one of the highest safety profiles of any skin care treatment.
It does not generate heat or UV wavelengths so cannot damage skin tissue or create photosensitivity.
It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types and the most sensitive skin conditions.
Dermalux is a relaxing, pain free experience with evidenced wellbeing effects.
The treatment does not generate heat but a feeling of natural warmth is common due to the increase in blood circulation.
The number of treatments required for optimum results is subject to a number of factors including indication and severity, age and lifestyle.
An initial course of 8 to 12 sessions is generally recommended for all conditions. Treatments taken in quick succession will generally achieve faster results.
Results can last for several months following a course of Dermalux treatments subject to the indication. However, regular maintenance treatments are advised to extend results as part of an on-going skin health programme.
No. We do not recommend using any mask on the skin with Dermalux as this will cause a barrier which will block some of the beneficial light.
The mask can either be applied before or after the LED treatment.
If you want to apply products with the LED treatment, we recommend a water based topical that absorbs easily to avoid reflection of the beneficial light.
Avoid anything with a high concentration of active ingredients which may be applied immediately after the LED treatment.
For very sensitive or problem skin conditions, apply the LED to cleansed skin only without any topical product to avoid the risk of adverse response.
No.Vitamin D production is triggered by exposure to UVB light which converts cholesterol found naturally in the body to vitamin D3.
No. Demalux does not use any wavelengths in the UV spectrum. The LED’s have a very narrow nanometre tolerance to ensure they only emit the required peak wavelength.
Light is a powerful energy which is made up of wavelengths ranging from very short gamma rays to very long radio waves. The human eye has evolved to detect wavelengths between 400nm and 700nm as colour. We see this as the rainbow ranging from blue through to red light. We do not see UV wavelengths which range up to 390nm and at the other end of the electromagnetic spectrum, we do not detect Near Infrared wavelengths at around 800nm plus. NIR is a very powerful wavelength even though we cannot see it.
Absolutely. As we don’t see NIR light, it is easy to underestimate the amazing therapeutic benefits. NIR is the wound healing wavelength. It accelerates repair and has powerful calming and soothing benefits for inflammatory and problem skin conditions. It is also proven for pain relief.
No. Dermalux is safe for all ages however treatment of clients under the age of 18 will be at the discretion of Queen B Luxury Nail and Beauty Lounge and will require parental consent.
We do not recommend using the Dermalux treatment on any guest who is currently undergoing medical treatment for cancer.
Once the guest has been signed off by the oncologist or doctor, it is safe to proceed.
Dermalux can be used on guests who have previously had cancer.
Even though the Dermalux treatment is very safe, the device has not been tested on pregnant women therefore the risk is unknown.
We will not be able to perform the treatment during your pregnancy. It is safe to use on guests who are breast feeding.
