What is Dermalux?
Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy is a multi-award winning, clinically proven treatment that addresses a variety of skin concerns. It uses light to speed up the skin’s natural process of rejuvenation and repair. Some of the conditions that can improve with a course of Dermalux are:
- Ageing skin
- It can also be used following a laser procedure such an the CO2 laser to speed up healing.
What is the procedure used for?
Dermalux is used to revitalise a dull and tired complexion - and has instant results. A course of treatment offers long lasting results, stimulating the skin's natural rejuvenation and repair processes to promote healthy looking skin, accelerate cell renewal and resolve a range of skin concerns.
Skin conditions occur because healthy cells are unable to renew and repair themselves. Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy utilises particular wavelengths of light that are scientifically proven to accelerate cellular repairing processes and collagen production. Some scientific studies have concluded that skin cells can repair themselves up to twice as fast when subject to particular wavelengths of light. Quite simply, the treatment causes your skin to rejuvenate and heal faster.
There are three variations of Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy which are suitable for treating specific skin conditions. They are: Dermalux™ LED Red, Dermalux™ LED Blue, and Dermalux™ LED Near Infra-Red. Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy is recommended for the treatment of:
- Acne and spots
- Skin rejuvenation
- Environmentally damaged skin
- Pigmentation, rosacea and redness
- Eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis

Who is the treatment suitable for?
It’s a treatment that is suitable for all skin types and conditions. However, if you are on a particular medication that causes photosensitivity you will not be able to have the treatment. It is especially effective at treating acne.
What happens during the procedure?
Your therapist will prepare the area to be treated with a thorough cleanse. She will then position the machine over the area and turn it on. You will feel like the sun is shining on your face and it should be relaxing. The Dermalux treatment is usually around 20 minutes. Your therapist may use different light modes depending on what you are having the treatment for. These are:
Dermalux™ LED Red which has been specifically developed to have an anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It’s a fantastic treatment for people with sensitive skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
Dermalux™ LED Blue which has substantial anti-bacterial properties that cleanse and purify acne to regulate oil production in the skin. A perfect treatment for those who suffer with regular breakouts.
Dermalux™ LED Near Infra-Red which is absorbed in the skin's deepest layers and stimulates cellular activity with advanced rejuvenation benefits. It also increases blood circulation, which brings vital oxygen and nutrients to help your skin repair itself and calm irritation as well as make your skin stronger.
What are the side effects or risks?
The treatment process is completely pain free. Some patients even find it relaxing. There's also no downtime.
What results can I typically expect?
