LED PhotoTherapy

In this treatment, the energy from red coloured to blue coloured light and to infrared light is used to heal skin conditions. Originally conceived to speed up the healing process for wounds and surgery related scars, SMARTLUX LED LITE is used extensively in skin rejuvenation and elimination of acne scars.

SMARTLUX uses High Intensity Phototherapy Device to deliver healing power and energy of light composed of red, blue, and Infrared with high-intensity SLDs (Super-luminous diodes) developed by SMART Phototherapy technologies. From wound healing and pain relief to improvement of dermatological conditions, anti-aging treatment, a boost to skin’s radiance, SMARTLUX effects exceptional results with its various wavelengths selection and wide variety of irradiation angle.

How Does It Work?

The LED SmartLux system uses light to stimulate cells, which start to activate their own vital functions and produce more enzymes. Photorejunvenation using the LED lamp activates photosensitive receptors int he cells to generate energy. From here, the photo rejuvenation leads to nourishment and regeneration of cells, on the face. Skin cells become gradually stronger thereby producing visible rejuvenation effect.

The treatment is extremely pleasant and relaxing, it demonstrates high efficacy. Patients are exposed to regenerating light that not only rejuvenates and revitalise the skin, but also alleviates pain and exhibits anti-inflammatory properties.

Who is suitable?

The red diode light (635nm)is meant for increasing the cell production rate through a process known as photobiostimulation, which increases production of collagen and elastin. As a result of accelerated microcirculation, the skin tone improves and fine wrinkles get smoothed out. This treatment is also used to complement other procedures such as photo-rejuvenation, radio frequency needling, chemical peeling etc. It boosts the treatment effect, speeds up the reparation cycles, and aids the post-surgery healing process.

The blue diode light (420nm) is used in acne treatment. It reduces the acne bacteria population, stops excess sebum, promotes production of elastin and collagen. It is appropriate for sensitive skin types, it is also used in conjunction with other therapies to treat acne conditions.

The Infrared light therapy (830nm) is for anti-inflammation, wound healing and pain relief. It can also stimulate muscle tissue repair especially healing and aiding recovery from surgery and after highly demanding treatments such as chemical peels and IPL.

The advantages of LED technology:

LED light acts simultaneously on two processes of skin ageing. The first, is to promote and accelerate the proliferation and activity of fibroblasts that leads to a results of an increased production of natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

The second benefits of the LED light is for improving skin quality and texture over time. As cold light has considerable effects on tissue repair processes such as early scars, stretch marks, burns and sunburn.  It is an ideal complement to other treatment procedures such as photo-rejuvenation, radio frequency needling, chemical peeling, injectables and etc. 

As LEDs does not contain UV rays, it is a safer form of light therapy treatment that does not cause long term damage to the skin as well as any downtime. It can also help to slows down hair loss and activates hair regrowth by densifying it. This technique improves blood circulation, which results in an increase in nutrient intake and better oxygenation of the bulb.

Doctor’s Advice & Recommendation

The LED phototherapy is a good post-treatment that complements other combined modalities. Patients can resume their normal active lifestyle immediately after the treatment. The first effects emerge after approximately 1.5months and are dependent on the condition of the skin as well as patient’s age and individual features.
