Why LED & dermaviduals
The importance of topicals used in conjunction with LED
The skin is the largest organ in the body and is also the largest receptor of light. Skin has the amazing ability to absorb light and transform it into energy that can stimulate healing through cellular regeneration – the ability to replace old, damaged skin cells with new, healthy ones. This is why treatments utilizing LED (Light Emitting Diodes), can achieve optimal results via a coloured-light energising facial.
LED increases the permeability of the cell membrane, allowing deeper penetration of the active ingredients and nutrients found in topical skincare products. Potent products, such as those in the dermaviduals range, achieve better subcutaneous delivery when used in conjunction LED. Our specialist serums improve the appearance of the skin and can be used to treat any skin condition.
Anyone serious about obtaining effective skincare results needs to focus on topicals ie. what you are putting onto your skin and how they can be specifically enhanced by LED.
The aim of any skin care clinician when treating skin should always be to maintain the skin barrier in its natural condition. This can only be achieved using external agents that are able to repair the natural barrier and importantly, will not impair regeneration from within.
Science shows that Vitamins A, C, E & B have potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. Although they are depleted by sunlight, smoking, pollution and other free radical stress caused from our environment. In recent years, the number of products and serums containing these vitamins has grown rapidly but some are more efficacious than others. dermaviduals uses only the most pure and active forms of these vitamins, with no fragrance, colours, mineral oils, preservatives or parabens.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
Here are just a few of the 25 serums able to work in tandem with LED machines:
- D-Pathenol (pro-vitamin B5 – healing post laser)
- Vitamin A (regenerating for mature skin)
- Vitamin C (supports vitamin E effect and collagen)
- Vitamin E (protects the skin and supports cell formation)
- CM Glucan (protection of the skin and barrier disorders)
- Hyaluronic acid (type of polysaccharide called a glycosaminoglycan nicknamed the “key to the fountain of youth”)
- Coenzyme Q10 (cellular energy)
- Butchers broom (great for reddened skin to strengthen the capilliaries)
As with any skin care procedure, you need to be aware that there are no quick fixes or “miracle cures”. This also applies to LED. These treatments are not a face-lift. However noticeable results are often seen after the first treatment and the long term effectiveness of this regime is undoubted.
Remember, however, that any skin care treatment is only as good as your adherence to a consistent home care programme and a lifestyle that is in keeping with the desired results.
