LED therapy for acne and anti ageing.

The hottest trend right now in skin therapy is LED Biophotonic Therapy.

At Skin Essentials, we have been in on this technology right from the beginning as we could see the potential for fantastic results on many skin issues in a non-invasive manner. We have been offering LED as part of our skincare treatments for 10 years now! As always, we are trend setters, not followers when it comes to finding the very best for your skin.

Over that time we have used several machines and become expert in lightwave technology! This experience has brought us to what we know to be the very best aesthetic LED machine on the market – the Celluma. We are proud to have been the first clinic in Europe to offer this first class machine to our clients and in fact it is so popular we have two available in our treatment rooms to keep up with demand.

What does LED do for your skin?

LED Biophotonic therapy is a light-based non-invasive treatment used to treat the signs of ageing in facial skin and also used in the treatment of acne.
LED Biophotonic Therapy works deep in the cellular structure of the skin in a non-invasive manner to promote collagen production, reduce redness, reduce lines and fight bacteria, giving you smoother, brighter, plumper skin with fewer blemishes. Skin is brighter, firmer with visibly reduced lines and smoother contours. You look fresher and more ‘awake’.

LED uses a technology first developed by NASA to help with wound healing in space.
It’s aesthetic application uses the device to deliver light deep into skin tissue to promote growth.
The mitochondria (energy components) of the cell are stimulated, colour-sensitive chemicals are activated, skin cells are re-energised and collagen production boosted.

Why did we choose the Celluma over all the other devices available?

The Celluma machine’s unique application of the technology (slower, longer pulses in a mouldable panel) allows for the most powerful effect, combining multiple wavelengths of blue, red and infra red light in the same session to give your skin a power super-boost in a very relaxing treatment. Of all the machines that we have used, and researched, it has the most research data, FDA clearances and industry awards.

Biophotonic therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment when taken in a series for anti-ageing or acne, or a single session can be added on to your prescribed facial or peel treatment to supercharge your results. It is an integral part of our microneedling treatment, speeding and boosting results.

As the light waves are working on a deep, cellular level you will find that positive changes in your skin’s appearance continue to occur for weeks and months after your initial course. These can be enhanced by monthly single-session top-ups and use of the correct skincare for your skin’s needs.
Pricing:
Single 30 minute session €40
Join our Celluma Club – monthly unlimited access to the Celluma for a single payment of €250. Fantastic to begin an anti-ageing routine or deeply boost a new acne clearing routine. Ideal usage is three times per week, but you can have more if you wish, some clients enjoy the relaxing benefits of Celluma so much that they come in every day on their lunch break during the month of their Celluma Club course.

Further information:

Technology developed by NASA using light emitting diodes (LED) has been scientifically proven by many recent clinical trials to re-regulate cellular function in the treatment of many common conditions, restoring the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Contrasted to many widely accepted therapies where vital tissue is intentionally damaged to create a healing response, using LED light to “re-energize” cellular function in a non-invasive manner allows the body to maintain vitality as nature intended. “LED reacts with cytochromes in the body,” explains Dr. Harry Whelan, professor of pediatric neurology and director of hyperbaric medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin. “Cytochromes are the parts of cells that respond to light and color. When cytochromes are activated, their energy levels go up, and that stimulates tissue growth and regeneration.”1
