Perfect Reflections is excited to introduce the Ultimate in Skin Rejuvenation Treatments, Scientifically proven to boost collagen and elastin for firmer radiant looking skin. Blue light is fantastic for killing the P-bacteria for Acne skin.
Photonlite therapy or LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a proven cosmetic therapy originally developed by NASA to aid wound healing in space. It works by emitting light into layers of the skin to stimulate cellular activity (called ‘photo modulation’) to produce new collagen – essentially tricking the skin into thinking it’s younger. It is a non-invasive light source which stimulates the deep tissue responsible for tissue repair and collagen production. This treatment is not a Laser or IPL and does not emit any UVA, UVB or Infrared. It is completely painless and safe for all skin types. Best of all it requires absolutely no recovery time and you see an instant glow after your initial treatment.
Entirely non-invasive, Photonlite LED starts working immediately. It is used to treat the following skin conditions:
Photonlite therapy can eliminate a dull complexion, tone and tighten facial muscles, and improve oxygenation in the skin, leaving your skin looking vibrant and fresh. LED is a highly effective treatment on its own or used in conjunction with Skin Needling, Microdermabrasion, for even more amazing results. It has the added benefit of reduced sun sensitivity compared with laser-based procedures, meaning it is safe to have at any time of the year.
L.E.D works for acne
L.E.D blue light therapy is very effective in treating acne. Blue light works on reducing colonies of bacteria responsible for acne and by exerting anti-inflammatory effects on the skin.
L.E.D.( Light Emitting Diode) can help to prevent and control papules, pustules, and typical acne quite effectively. The L.E.D. penetrates into the dermis and slows sebaceous glands that create oils in the skin that can cause acne. Non-inflamed acne such as whiteheads and blackheads tend to respond less effectively so it is recommended it be combined with a Medik8 facial for best results.
At Perfect Reflections, we use the MediLUX. This provides not just monochromatic treatments (one colour), it has the advantage of offering polychromatic programs using a variety of colour to attain ultimate versatility for unprecedented results.
LED Light Therapy stimulates collagen production (reducing fine lines and wrinkles) and kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin, improving skin clarity—with no pain and no downtime. Red light therapy: Activates collagen production to improve the visible signs of aging, to restore glowing, healthy-looking skin. It can also be used to reduce age spots, sun damage, and overall redness, flushing, and dilated capillaries. Red light therapy can also reduce the appearance of bruising and reduce healing time. Results are often immediate.
Blue light therapy: Kills acne-causing bacteria, without harming skin, to improve skin clarity and reduce future breakouts. Results are often seen after just one treatment but may require several treatments for desired results.
LED Blue light treatment.
LED blue light therapy is very effective for treating acne and usually requires multiple treatments. LED light treatments are a stand-alone treatment and can be discounted if combined with another Medik8 service such as a deep cleansing facial.
We recommend a course of 10 treatments over a 5 week period to ensure the best results, followed by a maintenance treatment every 4-6 weeks
Typically clients will come in for two treatments a week for 3-5 weeks or until improvement is visible. At that point, we gradually decrease the frequency of treatments. The treatment only takes about 20 minutes and does not leave any visible signs that you have had a treatment. We recommend L.E.D. treatments be used in conjunction with a home Medik8 or Mesoestetic regime that has been tailored to your skin concern. A consultation is required before any treatments can commence.
What to expect after the treatment?
Skin is refreshed and healthier, with a lovely glow. Stimulation of the collagen-producing cells
takes place causing the skin’s foundation to be strengthened. A course of LED treatments gives
the best results, and the effects can continue after the course for several weeks-months.
How long will the treatment last?
For maximum skin benefits and long-lasting results, a course of 7-10 treatments
over 3-5 weeks is recommended. A single booster treatment every 4-6 weeks
can help maintain results.
Does the treatment hurt?
No. It is completely painless, lying under bright red light, and once you
get used to the light it is often very relaxing.
Is it safe?
Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colours.
How long does the procedure take?
The whole procedure takes up to 45 minutes. Your skin will be cleansed
before the light treatment and afterward Medik8 serums and sunblock are applied.
How quickly does it work?
Although you may see improvements during the course of treatments, optimum results
will be seen 8-12 weeks after treatment, because of the natural processes of healing
and rejuvenation, stimulated by the light therapy, continue to work for this length of time.
