Diode light therapy is a treatment which harnesses the positive effects of both red and blue light to replenish and repair skin cells, which may provide an anti-ageing, rejuvenating, healing effect that can improve the appearance of the skin.
The Rejuvalight system consists of many tiny, individual red and blue-emitting diodes which are shone directly onto the face or body, with the goals of toning and plumping the skin, killing bacteria and promoting cellular growth. The red and blue lights have different effects on the skin.
Blue Light wavelengths penetrate the upper layer of the skin and may destroy bacterial cells in sweat pores and glands. This surface cleaning may assist the skin to recover from the acne infection.
Red Light wavelengths penetrate more deeply than blue light. They may stimulate the skin to rejuvenate and develop more collagen fibres, which may improve elasticity, diminish fine lines and wrinkles and assist the repair of damaged skin cells.
The red and blue lights can be used selectively or combined, depending on the condition of the skin being treated.
A course of chemical skin peels or microdermabrasion may also be advantageous following a course of rejuvalight.
Acne often responds very well to rejuvalight, with many patients seeing an improvement in moderate acne in as few as eight 30 minute sessions.
This treatment may help with the appearance of:
- Sun-damaged skin.
- Hand rejuvenation.
Prices from £50.00 per treatment for a course of 6-8 sessions.
Treatments will take approximately 30 minutes twice a week.
No, the treatment is non-invasive and no direct contact is made with the skin. RejuvaLight treatment is generally a pleasant, relaxing experience.
Clients must wear protective eyewear during the treatment to protect the eyes against the high-intensity diode light. Red and blue light wavelength exposure on the skin for the treatment time we recommend has no known side effects.
Many patients notice an improvement in the overall tone of the skin from the very first treatment, but conditions such as acne and wrinkles may take a longer time to repair. A short course, typically 6-8 treatments, is recommended to achieve the desired results. Some patients may require more or fewer treatments to get the results they desire.
Monthly maintenance visits are usually recommended to maintain results.
