DERMALUX Flex MD At-Home Rental

Dermalux Flex MD delivers great results and even better, it’s portable. With an exclusive rental programme combined with targeted CLINICCARE At-At Home facials or stand alone treatments you can benefit from salon grade results in the comfort of your home.

Dermalux is the industry leading professional LED phototherapy treatment that harnesses the power of pure light for visibly rejuvenated, clearer and refined skin.

The Flex delivers clinically proven Blue 415nm, Red 633nm and Near Infrared 830nm via single wavelength LED’s to ensure precision and optimum optical power. Wavelengths can be selected as individual or multi-wavelength treatments.

It works by exposing the skin to low level, non thermal light to stimulate or regulate biological processes within the skin. Each wave length activate key cell receptors and triggers cell activation via transferring the light to cellular energy within the skin. The skin will look energised and hydrated.

Red light penetrates deep into the skin to hydrate, reduce lines and promote collagen and elastin synthesis.

Blue light is antibacterial so will destroy acne bacteria and is excellent for calming, reducing and preventing further breakouts.

Near infrared light has anti inflammatory properties and assists skin healing. This is wavelength that is clinically proven to reduce hyperpigmentation and can help treat conditions such as acne and rosacea too.

LED light therapy is excellent for treating:

  • Acne
  • Extreme Skin Sensitivity
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea Skin
  • Skin Ageing
  • Pigmentation
  • Muscular and Joint Pain relief

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.

After an LED Photo-therapy session one of the first things that clients notice is a smoothness and softness to the skin. It usually takes around 4 treatments to notice obvious improvements but some clients notice improvements earlier.


Dermalux is an essential part of any skin care programme to optimise and accelerate results and provides the foundation to beautiful skin. The options are:

The Power of Light


Blemish fighting blue light destroys the bacteria which causes spots and improves skin clarity without irritation. It also has a calming effect for problem skin conditions.


Rejuvenating Red light energises cells to accelerate renewal, boost collagen and elastin production and increase hydration for smoother firmer skin. Ideal for restoring vitality and glow.


Regenerating Near Infrared light offers advanced rejuvenation benefits, promotes healthy skin, calms redness and irritation and helps to reduce pigmentation.

Dermalux Tri-wave Therapy

For enhanced and accelerated results, Dermalux therapy uniquely delivers multi- wavelength treatments which are tailored to your skin condition.


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.
