Service Description

Rejuvenating Red light is absorbed in the mitochondria, the ‘cell power house’ responsible for the production of essential energy (ATP) for cellular function. Red light increases cellular metabolism for cell regeneration and renewal. Red light also induces the production of collagen type 1. It has a range of applications for the improvement of photodamage and wound healing. It has also been proven to stimulate circulation to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the cells and the lymphatic system to boost detoxification. Essentially Red light supercharges our cell energy triggering a cascade of biological pathways which result in skin enhancing effects. Blue light targets the p.acnes (Propionibacterium acnes) bacteria. When bacteria absorb blue light,  photo- excitation of porphyrins  triggers a photochemical reaction and the porphyrins convert to singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen has a powerful antibacterial action to help eliminate spots whilst being gentle on the skin. With continued use, this clarifying effect can help in the prevention of breakouts. In addition to the bactericidal effect, the immune system stops producing inflammatory chemicals which triggers an anti-inflammatory response. Blue light is absorbed superficially in the skin but when used in combination with Red light, deeper penetration is achieved. Red light activates a further form of porphyrin, protoporphyrin IX as well has having a significant anti-inflammatory effect by influencing the release of cytokines from macrophages. The result is a reduction of inflammatory lesions and accelerated healing to assist in the prevention of scarring. Regenerating Near Infrared light targets the skin’s deepest layers and stimulates cell activity with advanced rejuvenation and healing benefits. Near Infrared 830nm is absorbed by chromophores in the cell membrane which stimulate complex cellular processes resulting in increased collagen, elastin and growth factor production and repair mechanisms essential in the wound healing process. Release of Nitric Oxide (NO) increases blood flow (vasodilation) stimulating the formation of new vessels and aids vascular repair. Light stimulated neo-vascularisation in the treatment area means greater skin perfusion to the skin and increased tissue oxygenation. Stimulation of lymph activity aids the removal of toxins which helps to reduce oedema and inflammation. Increasing blood circulation improves complexion and general skin health.
