What is Dermalux LED therapy?
Dermalux is a non-invasive treatment that harnesses the power of pure light to accelerate the skins natural rejuvenation and repair processes.
This pain free and a very relaxing treatment (it can feel like lying on the beach and soaking up the sun) is clinically proven to treat all skin concerns from anti-ageing to acne and sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
What happens during Dermalux LED Therapy?
When you arrive at Dr CP Aesthetics for your Dermalux LED phototherapy treatment we will gently cleanse your skin, ensuring we remove any sunscreen, makeup and skincare products. This is necessary to allow the beneficial light waves to penetrate your skin after which we exfoliate your skin to remove the dead skin cells that are known to reflect the light.
Protective eyewear is required to be worn in order to protect your eyes from the LED lights. For 20-30 minutes, you can relax while a special overhead panel directs light waves onto your skin. The treatment is completely pain-free, and will give your skin a natural, glowing boost.
How safe is the treatment?
LED Phototherapy does not use heat or chemicals and the light does not contain harmful UV wavelengths and so cannot damage skin cells. Dermalux provides one of the safest ways to treat all skin types and conditions without risk of irritation, unwanted side effects or downtime.
Will the results be seen straight away?
The results of Dermalux™ LED phototherapy can last for several months when a patient has undergone a treatment course. This said, it is always advised to have top-up treatments to maintain results. As light therapy does not harm the skin, there is no limit to the amount of treatments you can have.
How many treatments are required?
This can vary with age, skin type and condition. A single session of Dermalux is an ideal ‘pick me up’ to replenish vital hydration, restore radiance or simply to calm irritated skin. A course of treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.
How does LED phototherapy work?
As a result of ageing, problem skin conditions or trauma, healthy cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally. Our skin has the ability to absorb certain wavelengths of light and use it as a source of energy to activate specific cellular processes to produce a therapeutic effect. It is a natural biochemical reaction similar to that of plant photo-synthesis.
Dermalux LED Phototherapy uses clinically proven wavelengths to recharge these cells energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster, promoting healing from the inside out.
The increased energy enhances cellular metabolism which in turn builds collagen, increases elasticity, boosts circulation, accelerates tissue repair or kills bacteria. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells can regenerate themselves from 150 to 200 per cent faster when exposed to certain LED wavelengths and hydration can be increased by up to 600%. This whole process results in radiant, youthful and naturally healthy skin.

Dermalux LED Near Infa-Red

Dermalux Combined Therapy (Tri-Wave Therapy with all 3 wave lengths)

It is safe to go in the sun and to apply makeup immediately after this treatment, as long as you are wearing an SPF of at least 50. The effects of Dermalux LED treatment are instantaneous, however, as a natural stimulation process, the full extent of the results of the treatment will reveal itself over a period of time, sometimes up to 6 weeks after the course of the treatment has finished! A course of treatment is recommended for long-lasting results with the best possible outcome for all skin types and conditions.
