Ageing of the skin is characterised by dehydration lines, dull and lifeless complexion, expression wrinkles, deep wrinkles around the lips, frown lines, sagging jowls amongst other warning signs. Ageing of the skin is visible on the surface however it occurs at three levels: epidermal, dermal, as well as in the muscle tissue beneath these outer skin layers.
Lumi LED therapy penetrates deep into your skin to all three levels and works to repair years of damage and to rejuvenate skin tissue while stimulating and lifting facial muscles.
The first record of light being used as a therapy is by the Ancient Greeks who found that increasing exposure to light would improve health. Scientists have since proved the benefits perceived by the Greeks can be attributed to higher levels of vitamin D production which in turn improves the body’s absorption of calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphate, and zinc. Vitamin D also promotes the production of serotonin in the brain which makes us feel happy.
Science has also found that the over-exposure to UV rays in natural sunlight damages the skin and causes premature ageing or even skin cancers. To harness the benefits of light while avoiding the harmful effects of over-exposure, technology has developed treatments using selected light wavelengths for use in many medical fields from neurology to dermatology to treat tissues and to promote healing.
Today the use of LED light therapies is particularly popular as a cosmetic procedure to treat skin conditions in an efficient, painless and non-abrasive manner.
The Lumi LED Light therapy has 20 configurations using a spectrum of colours and intensities of light for specific skin types and conditions. Depending on the individual needs of the skin to be treated, a combination of colours and intensities is chosen by our treatment specialists to achieve the optimal result.
A recommended Lumi LED treatment programme is up to 6 times in a week; one treatment every two months is advisable to help maintain the effects.
This modern treatment combines four different coloured LED lights of different wavelengths and medical functions. Each colour has a unique and direct impact on skin cells:
Red light increases collagen production up to 5 fold, triggering repair mechanisms and stimulating cell regeneration. It reduces inflammation and promotes better circulation so can speed up healing by carrying more oxygen and nutrients to the skin.
Green light decreases melanin production, reduces pigmentation and eliminates the redness associated with the use of chemical peels and bleaching products while accelerating skin healing.
Blue light improves acne prone skin by destroying acne-causing bacteria. It penetrates into the superficial dermis and has a calming and regulating effect on the sebaceous gland so is particularly useful for treating greasy skin.
Yellow or amber light is used for its healing, draining and detoxifying properties. It is absorbed by the fluids in the lymph & blood circulatory systems and promotes wound healing. Light at this wavelength increases lymphatic flow to evacuate more waste products and boosts cellular activity by helping to build new collagen and elastin.
Packed with proven benefits, the Lumi LED light treatment can be used to treat skin problems and the signs of ageing by:
