LED Light Therapy

The lumineo LED device is a revolutionary device that is the first to deliver 6 different wavelengths to combat many different skin issues. it can be offered as a stand-alone treatment or it can be added on to advanced aesthetic skin treatments, to accelerate the results. 

It is a non-invasive, painless and non-surgical treatment with no downtime, making it a very popular treatment. It still provides a huge difference to the skin in the long run as it regenerates the skin from within working from a cellular level. No skin care on earth can penetrate as deeply as LED.

Technical Information:

The extra cellular matrix is made up of glycosaminoglycan’s (mainly composed of hyaluronic acid), collagen and elastin. The LED works to stimulate fibroblasts that will regenerate these important components. 

  • LED also works to improve oxygenation, blood circulation and aid in lymphatic drainage
  • Light energy from the LED penetrates beneath the skin and is absorbed by the proteins in the cells beneath the skin. These cells release nitric oxide, the body’s natural vasodilator, after just 10 minutes of the treatment blood flow is increased to nerves and other tissues, this then boosts circulation for several hours. The blood will work to feed the skin with vital nutrients.
How many treatments are recommended?
Anywhere between 6-10 treatments. LED is a long term treatment and therefore some clients might benefit from further treatments.
How often can a client have a treatment?
LED offers flexibility. It can be offered as often as 3 x a week or once every 2-4 weeks, along side a skin rejuvenation treatment. Every clients need and results will differ.
Expected sensation from LED light?
There shouldn’t be a sensation on the skin. You may just feel a slight warming and relaxing feeling.
What are the expected results from one treatment?
A healthy glow as blood circulation has been boosted.
What are the expected results from one treatment?
Smoother, brighter, healthier skin with a reduction in breakouts, ageing concerns, uneven skin and an improvement in skin hydration and vitality.
Can you treat teenagers/young children?
Yes, provided they are not contraindicated and where necessary – seek a GPs approval. A parent or guardian needs to be present to do the consultation and for treatment at all times.
Can you treat men with beards?

Does LED damage the eyes?
LED has not shown to directly damage the retina, but we advise you to cover eyes at all times.

Red light – 635nm

This powerful ‘clinically proven’ wavelength penetrates deepest into the skin to accelerate healing, reduce inflammation and regenerate the extra cellular matrix. It is a highly anti-inflammatory wavelength that can help to reduce and control rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis and breakout-prone skin.

Green light – 560nm

This is the skin calming mode that will help to reduce inflammation. Hyper-pigmentation is caused when the skin is under trauma and consequently excess melanin is produced. Green LED can target this area and help prevent hyper-pigmentation by decreasing inflammation in the skin.

Blue light – 415nm

This is an excellent treatment for breakout prone skin by killing Propionibacterium in the skin, therefore it will reduce pustules, papules and comedones (black & whiteheads). Seborrhoea can be reduced therefore giving the skin a brighter, smoother and matte appearance over time. It can help to reduce inflammation that can arise alongside the breakouts.

Purple light – 308nm

This mode can help to heal and repair the skin, brighten up the skin and treat acne skin issues.

Yellow light – 590nm

Yellow light can help to accelerate wound healing and aid in lymphatic drainage by detoxing the skin and preventing regular breakouts and a sluggish complexion.

Orange light – 610nm

This wavelength works to boost blood circulation, oxygenation and aid in lymphatic drainage. In doing so, it’ll work to feed the skin with vital nutrition and improve overall quality and health of the skin.
