Lightfusion™ is the brand name for our light emitting device for the treatment of periorbital wrinkles and pigmented skin. LED Light Therapy or Phototherapy as it is also known, it helps reduce pore size, improve skin tone and texture and gives a vibrant healthier looking skin after just one treatment. It’s a natural, non-invasive, painless treatment suitable for all skin types and conditions.
Quite simply phototherapy is “the use of light to alter biological activity”. Phototherapy involves exposing cells or tissue to low levels of light in the visible or near infrared part of the spectrum. When light of these wavelengths penetrate the skin they are absorbed by the mitochondria of the cell which starts a cascade of inter and extracellular reactions that promotes healthier skin. Phototherapy is not a new science and today over 1000 clinical studies have studied the effects of light on our bodies and on many cellular processes demonstrating that light:
Enhances the production of adenosine triphosphate or ATP which enhances cellular metabolism and proliferation
Enhances cellular homeostasis, repairing imbalances within the cell and between cells
Increases blood flow and lymph activity to eliminate toxins and accelerate healing
Enhances RNA and DNA synthesis to improve reproduction of healthy cells
Increases proliferation of cell types involved in promoting and maintaining healthy skin
Increases synthesis of collagen and elastin
Because Lightfusion™ creates no heat it's suitable for all skin types, and is clinically proven to treat fine lines, hyperpigmentation, improve skin tone and texture and reduce inflammation.
Yes, Lightfusion™ is non-ablative, meaning it does not cut, burn or break the skin surface. Lasers work by using heat and this heat causes trauma within the skin that creates a wound that then repairs. This means that after a laser session, your skin will be very red, often painful and you will peel. The recovery time is anything from 3-10 days with a laser treatment.
