Dermalux LED Rosacea Therapy

Dermalux Treatment

What is Rosacea?

It is a chronic inflammatory disease of the face in which the skin appears abnormally red. The onset is gradual and begins with what first seems like a tendency to blush easily, a red complexion or an extreme sensitivity to topical products. The redness appears in a characteristic butterfly pattern across the nose and cheeks and may be accompanied by dry flaky patches. As the condition progresses, there may be papules and pustules present yet rosacea is rarely accompanied by comedones. As the symptoms of rosacea can look like those of acne, it is a condition that is often diagnosed.

Stinging and burning sensations are common and the skin will often feel dry and tight. Aggravating factors include heat, environmental aggravators such as UV, alcohol, spicy food, hormones, and stress.

How does LED Phototherapy treat Rosacea?

Clinical studies have proven that LED light in the Red and Near Infra-Red range has an anti-inflammatory and healing effect for rosacea suffers and can offer immediate relief from the chronic symptoms. Where acne is also present, the introduction of LED Blue light is also beneficial to destroy bacteria without irritation.

Rosacea sufferers have a reduced capacity to counteract the negative effect of environmental factors, in particular free radicals and therefore experience an increased inflammatory response and skin damage. Red and Near Infra-Red LED Phototherapy has the ability to increase the levels of an enzyme called superoxide dismutase which effectively has an anti-oxidant effect in the skin to neutralise the free radicals. 

Over a course of treatment, the skin becomes more resilient and the immunity of the skin is restored. Furthermore, circulation is improved by an increase in angiogenesis (formation of new capillaries). These additional blood vessels replace damaged ones allowing more oxygen and nutrients to become readily available to speed up the healing process.
