IS LED Phototherapy New?

The benefits of light have been known for thousands of years, from ancient Egypt, India and China. A Danish Physician won the Nobel prize in 1903 for the research in the treatment of certain skin conditions with light. It was then many years later, that the therapeutic benefits of light were used again with other segments of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) with visible and near-far infrared wavelengths.

In the 1960’s experiments were undertaken for photobio stimulation and the benefits of red light discovered…. The first steps to treating skin conditions with LED were here!!

Initial work on the dermatological benefits was undertaken by NASA as a result of the positive effect of LED to acerbate play growth, and wound healing when under different atmospheric pressures. Light therapy is now used for a range of conditions from cosmetic to skin cancer treatment.

How does it work?

Our skin has the ability to absorb light energy and use it to stimulate or regulate essential cell processes. LED Phototherapy is the application of beneficial wavelengths from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum which have proven skin enhancing benefits. Skin cells that are energised function better and can renew up to 200% faster accelerating regeneration and repair.

What are the benefits?

Dermalux uses unique combinations of clinically proven Blue, Red and Near Infrared wavelengths to boost collagen production, increase hydration, calm redness and irritation and blitz blemish causing bacteria. As the light triggers a whole cascade of skin enhancing processes, the benefits continue even after the treatment has finished.

Key Benefits of LED Phototherapy:

  • Prevents, repairs and maintains ageing skins.
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosts collagen and Elastin production
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Aids cell detoxification, helping in the prevention and treatment of Glycation

Contraindications

LED is safe, non-thermal, nontoxic and non-invasive, and to date no side effects have been reported in published literature. In the 20 years that LED has been used in the medical and beauty industry, there have been no reported incidents of adverse reactions or damage caused by LED therapy.

If the client is taking medication that increases light sensitivity there may be a temporary, slight reaction. However, these are to be flagged as a precaution not a contraindication.

Medication that causes light sensitivity may potentially allow your body to absorb more light than normal. However, because LED therapy delivers non-harmful low-level light (as opposed to UV, for example), the only side effects would be a slightly red/flushed appearance to the skin, or possibly a rash. This is temporary and will go down after a few hours.


May make the skin light sensitive but you can just treat with caution. Clients can come with perfume on their skin but they may get a little bit of temporary redness (this does not create long term damage).


The doctor who has prescribed the drug will ask the client not to use LED therapy until the course of treatment has been completed. It is important that this guidance is respected. However, most doctors have said that clients can start having LED therapy the day after stopping taking Roaccutane medication. This point shows again that there’s extraordinarily little risk associated with mixing the medication with LED treatments.


This strong retinol product can cause skin irritation, redness, burning, dry or peeling skin. The client can still have the treatment, but if the skin is very red and raw ask the client to reduce their usage of the Isotretinoin, then introduce LED a few days later. It is much better to recommend that the client use a topical product slowly, gaining results without causing vulnerability to the skin. If the application of Isotretinoin is reduced to every 2nd or 3rd night and LED is then introduced, good results will be gained without causing discomfort.

It’s advisable to ask clients to refrain from using the cream the night before they have LED therapy.


Generally, it is fine to treat clients with most forms of autoimmune disease. For example, some clients have rheumatoid arthritis or polymyalgia rheumatic but can still have LED treatment. An exception to this is if clients are suffering from lupus erythematous. In this case you must get permission from the client’s doctor before proceeding with treatment. Lupus is the name given to a collection of autoimmune diseases in which the human immune system becomes hyperactive and attacks normal, healthy tissues. Symptoms of these diseases can affect many different body systems, including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, heart, and lungs.


Caution must be emphasised for epileptic and photophobic patients especially if LEDs are pulsed.


This is a precaution as manufacturers never test equipment on pregnant woman. Our insurance does not cover the treatment of pregnant women, so before treatment can proceed the clients’ obstetrician or doctor must be made aware. The client has to sign the consultation form saying a doctor has given consent.


Breast feeding is not a contraindication. However, for insurance purposes clients need to consult their GP or midwife and follow their recommendations.

Safe for Pre/Post Cancer Treatment

LED light only stimulates healthy cells and is totally safe to use on clients with cancer, increasing the healthier cells effectiveness in the fight against damaged cells. LED therapy not only stimulates skin cells, it also works on the lymphatic system and drainage, therefore helping to rid the body of toxins. Those post-cancer, or with cancer and not in the middle of treatment, can take advantage of the multiple benefits of LED therapy.

Prices

An initial course of weekly treatments and then regular programme would benefit both the skin and the body generally. Combining other treatments with LED Phototherapy will boost results
