While we often associate light exposure with skin ageing and damage, light also has many positive influences on the body. It helps us produce Vitamin D and provides energy and serotonin and can also accelerate our skin’s natural repair processes.
The differences between positive and negative effects of light are the amount and the parts of the light spectrum we are exposed to. Ongoing exposure to UV is very damaging but controlled levels of red, blue and near infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.
The Dermalux treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of this beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which energise cellular functions to stimulate various cellular processes with therapeutic effects.
Dermalux LED Phototherapy is clinically proven in the treatment of a wide range of cosmetic and dermatological skin indications, to naturally stimulate skin rejuvenation and resolve problem conditions for both the face and body.
Due to its ability to activate cellular processes without transferring heat or creating trauma, the versatility of LED Phototherapy is greater than many other advanced skin treatments.
Dermalux can be used as a standalone treatment for the indications as outlined below. It can also be integrated with existing skin treatments to enhance and accelerate results and as part of an on-going skin care programme.
Following is a list of skin conditions where LED Phototherapy has been shown to be effective.
- Skin Rejuvenation: fine lines, complexion and texture
- Acne and prone skin
- Rosacea, redness and flushing
- Dehydrated and lack lustre skin
- Inflammatory conditions
- Accelerated healing and pain relief
- Relaxation, wellbeing and mood lifting
Dermalux systems use only clinically proven wavelengths delivered at the optimised intensity and dose enabling effective photobiomodulation of targeted cells and skin tissue with proven results.
Dermalux Red 633nm
Rejuvenating Red light accelerates cell renewal and repair, boosting collagen and elastin synthesis for smoother, firmer skin.
Exposure to Red light at 633nm is clinically proven to increase the body’s natural form of cellular energy (ATP) which in turn “kick starts” cells to regenerate faster. Red light is potently absorbed by fibroblasts increasing collagen and elastin synthesis and boosting natural hydration levels. It also improves blood flow for increased tissue oxygenation and the lymphatic systems to eliminate toxins. Red light offers immediate visible results; skin feels hydrated and plump and radiance is restored.
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Increases collagen and elastin synthesis
- Improves complexion, texture and tone
- Increases natural hydration
- Stimulates circulation & lymphatic system
- Shrinks enlarged pores
- Restores radiance
Dermalux Blue 415nm
Blemish fighting Blue light destroys the bacteria which causes spots and helps in the prevention of breakouts.
Exposure to Blue light at 415nm interacts with the p.acnes bacteria creating a photodynamic reaction which results in bacterial destruction. It also helps to balance sebum production and improve skin clarity. Applied in combination with Red and Near Infrared light, the Dermalux Tri-Wave treatment offers enhanced anti-blemish results and is excellent as a post treatment procedure to help minimise breakouts and reduce redness.
- Blemish fighting action without irritation
- Helps acne prone skin
- Prevents breakouts
- Balances oil production
- Improves skin clarity
- UV Free alternative for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
Dermalux Near Infrared 830nm
Exposure to Near Infrared light at 830nm triggers the skins anti-inflammatory processes to accelerate repair and reduce irritation and redness. Near Infrared light builds strength and integrity for compromised, environmentally damaged and sensitive skin conditions. It is also clinically effective in the treatment of age spots and hyperpigmentation.
- Reduces pigmentation
- Scar reduction and prevention
- Relieves pain and inflammation
- Advanced skin rejuvenation benefits
- Treats rosacea
- Relieves redness and irritation
- Promotes healthy skin

Dermalux™ LED phototherapy is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses the power of natural light to stimulate the skin’s cell renewal processes; in many ways, it is similar to photosynthesis in plants and very safe.
LED phototherapy uses specific colour wavelengths of light – Red, Blue, and Red & Blue combined – to penetrate the skin at varying depths, energising your skin cells to produce new collagen and elastin, as well as improving blood and oxygen flow at the same time as releasing toxins.
Everyone can benefit from light therapy, as it reverses the signs of ageing, clears acne and blemishes, and accelerates healing. It also helps damaged, injured or diseased skin cells return to optimum health.
Studies have shown that when skin is exposed to LED light, skin cells regenerate themselves on average 150% to 200% faster and hydration can be increased by up to 600%. This whole process results in radiant, youthful and naturally healthy skin.
When you arrive for your DermaluxTM LED phototherapy treatment, we will gently cleanse your skin to remove all make-up and skincare products, including sunscreen. This allows the beneficial light waves to penetrate your skin. We will also exfoliate your skin to remove any dead skin cells that may reflect the light. For enhanced results, a topical serum may be applied.
Once your skin is prepared, we will give you special eyewear to wear throughout your treatment to protect your eyes from the bright LED lights. You will then lay back and relax while a special overhead panel directs light waves on to your skin, typically for 20 to 30 minutes. The treatment is completely pain-free and a great way to get some downtime while giving your skin a boost.
With light therapy the visible effects are immediate. After just one treatment, your skin should look incredibly hydrated, plump and radiant with any redness and irritation calmed. People tend to book a single appointment for when they need a skin ‘pick me up’ but may need several sessions for longer-lasting results as they are cumulative and will continue after the treatment has ended. Treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.
The results of Dermalux™ LED phototherapy can last for several months following a course of treatments. However, as with any skin treatment, maintenance sessions are advised to ensure lasting results. As light therapy does not harm the skin, there is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have.
No. This treatment stands out because 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 1,700 clinical studies and it does not harm the body in any way.
LED light therapy is a heat-free treatment that does not contain harmful UV wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue or create photosensitivity. It is clinically proven to be safe for all skin types, including darker skins and the most sensitive skin conditions.
No. You won’t need to take time off after your treatment.
Call us to arrange a free half-hour consultation to discuss your requirements. We will consider your medical history and the results you’re looking for, before discussing the most suitable procedures with you. We will also talk you through the pros and cons of each treatment, including potential side effects, as we want you to feel fully informed before you make a decision.
Call 0421 700 172 or book online.
After any treatment, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions that relate to your procedure, so you know what to do and what to expect.
Generally speaking, there is nothing you should avoid after this treatment, although it should be followed by the application of suitable skincare products, including a sunscreen. Make-up can then be applied. We recommend the use of mineral make-up which will not block pores and allows the skin to breathe.
Your happiness and satisfaction is of paramount importance to us. After your treatment, you will be given a 24-hour contact telephone number so you can get in touch at any time should you have any worries or concerns.
