How does it work ?

The red and infrared light stimulates the human skin at the cellular level to increase the cellular level of activity. This, in turn, stimulates the body to build new capillaries and improve the lymphatic system, which are both essential to creating improved skin. The result is a younger, healthier looking skin.

It requires make-up removal and your skin care specialist may add specialized products. The skin looks different after the first treatment: smoother and more hydrated with a natural radiant glow.  Because the results commence from within the skin, the skin feels active, more alive, plump, smoother, and tighter. You will experience a feeling of relaxation, light warmth and well being. he answer to the question.

How does photo-therapy work on acne?

Acne is caused by a surplus of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands. When there is too much sebum, the p. acne bacteria which feeds on the sebum flourishes and that can lead to acne breakouts. The actual causes of too much sebum are not completely understood but may be related to hormonal changes. The red/infrared photo-therapy works on acne at several different levels. First, it normalizes the sebum thereby depriving the bacteria of its food source. This results in less bacteria and reduced chances for breakouts. Second, the red/infrared is anti-inflammatory which reduces the redness. Third, it shrinks the pores which helps clear the skin. Fourth, it stimulates the bodies healing response which accelerates mending and improves the appearance of the skin. Finally, the red/infrared reduces scarring from acne by promoting the production of collagen to repair the skin. The blue/violet photo-therapy benefits acne sufferers by helping to kill the acne bacteria. It was found that some of the visible violet light, present in sunlight, in the range 405-420 nm activates a porphyrin in p. acnes which damages and ultimately kills the bacteria by releasing singlet oxygen.
