Dermalux Anti-Ageing & Skin Rejuvenation

Dermalux Treatment

The skin's metabolism and natural functions start declining from the age of 25.  Structural changes occur within the dermis (supporting layer) and the epidermis (outer most layer of skin).  As we age the cells of our skin are unable to renew themselves properly.  This results in a dry complexion, wrinkles, sensitivity and loss of elasticity.

From 40 to 45 years hormone activity decreases resulting in drier, thinner skin, making it more vulnerable to environmental damage.  Collagen fibres decrease and break apart.  Elastin fibres break down and lose elasticity.  UV light (sun) greatly accelerates this process. 

Dermalux LED Phototherapy is clinically proven to correct and prevent these processes (in a similar way to photosynthesis in plants), without the harmful UV light.

Features

How does LED Phototherapy treat Ageing Skin?

 

Collagen, elastin and reticulin fibres are produced by cells called fibroblasts. Collagen is a major component of connective tissue and is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein for wound healing and is used to repair and replace damaged tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production, less scar tissue will be formed at the injured site. 

During an LED Phototherapy session, wavelengths of Red and Near Infra-Red light are absorbed by the fibroblast cells stimulating the energy producing mitochondria (the cells power producer) into producing more ATP. This in turn stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen and growth factors, which increases skin thickness, reduces lines and wrinkles and improves skin texture and clarity.

The increased elastin levels produced improve skin elasticity and the increase in reticulin fibres gives greater support structure within the dermis. After a series of LED treatments, fibroblasts can continue to produce new collagen for several months. LED can suppress collagenase, a collagen degrading enzyme that can accelerate the skins ageing process.
