Vogue’s beauty section often features the latest beauty trends and products – and that includes innovative new beauty treatments.
The December feature ‘Light Fantastic‘ looks at the growth of light therapy, following the opening of a dedicated Light Salon in London’s Harvey Nichols.
Vogue’s Lauren Murdoch-Smith explains:
“With no downtime and immediate results, light therapy is fast becoming a popular alternative to traditional facials.”
Treatments are quick and convenient, involving exposure to specially tuned light according to the condition being treated.
The Vogue article goes on to explain the different colours of light used:
Yellow: A preconditioning light that creates movement in the top layers of the skin’s cells, making the skin more receptive to the near-infrared light that follows, like red and blue.
Blue: Used to treat acne and acne scars. It hits the bacteria deep inside the pores and, combined with red light, can reduce inflammation to the skin caused by acne or other skin conditions.
Red: Skin will feel plump and sunkissed (it also stimulates blood circulation) and will glow immediately, but after three to five days, you’ll see the full results.
Using light to treat the skin sounds unnerving at first, after years of media messaging about the risks of harmful UV rays. However, LEDs do not contain any harmful UV wavelengths and therefore cannot damage skin tissue. In fact, the reverse applies. LED can stimulate hydration and blood circulation and recovery.
Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre based in Northamptonshire offer the award-winning Dermalux system. The Dermalux™ Tri-wave LED systems consists of 8 panels of LED lights and incorporates 3 wavelengths of Light Emitting Diode (LED) light energy – red light, blue light and near infra-red light.
Dermalux treatment was launched at Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre based in Hardingstone near Northampton back in June 2013 and has proven its versatility and effectiveness with a wide variety of patients and a range of differing skin conditions and requirements, including
- skin health and complexion
- lines and wrinkles
- sun damage and pigmentation
- acne, eczema & other conditions
