LED light therapy is recognised as an essential treatment for any successful salon business due to its role in the foundation of skin optimisation and good skin health. Coronavirus lockdowns may have increased the awareness and popularity of LED therapy as an at-home treatment, however, offering a professional, powerful and medically certified LED device in salon or clinic is key to transforming clients skin.

Well evidenced for its regenerative benefits without trauma or downtime, the non-invasive nature of LED light therapy makes it particularly effective in targeting problematic and inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, maskne (mask-induced acne), redness and hyperpigmentation.

What are the skincare benefits of LED?

The treatment involves exposing the skin to low levels of beneficial light energy from the visible and infrared part of the light spectrum. Specific wavelengths activate key cell receptors and trigger a transfer of light energy to cellular energy, which stimulate or regulate biological processes for therapeutic effect.

Selecting a device that delivers the proven parameters offers the opportunity to introduce LED light therapy as a standalone service, express treatment, at-home rental, and as an adjunctive treatment to enhance results and accelerate healing and recovery times. However, not all LED devices are created equal.

What should I look for in an LED device?

The key to a successful LED treatment is the specific wavelength (+/- 2nm), coupled with sufficient optical intensity (power), to maximise the clinical outcome. All Dermalux LED systems combine blue 415nm, red 633nm and near infrared 830nm, which are the most clinically evidenced wavelengths for LED light therapy treatment backed by science.

The light is delivered via Dermalux’s LED technology and all of our systems offer the choice of single and multimaking mode LED treatments, enabling you to deliver better results, supported by hundreds of case studies across a wide range of indications. Commercially, Dermalux is one of the most profitable treatments available too as there are no consumables and minimal maintenance.
