‘Grow old gracefully’ may be a famous saying, but who says we can’t use a few products along the way? After all, everyone needs a helping hand now and then. One of our favourite devices to do just that is the Dermalux FlexMD, fresh from our very own CURRENTBODY Skin range.
Ideal for treating all over the body and face, this handy tool uses phototherapy to promote the skin’s natural regeneration process, accelerating collagen production and reducing signs of ageing. But when it comes to its benefits that’s just the start. Not only is it the most powerful device of its kind, it can be used from head to toe - by all the family - and is completely safe and pain-free. Want to know more? Read on to find out why you should try it for yourself.
It's the most powerful home-use LED device
The Dermalux FlexMD is a non-invasive beauty device that provides clinically proven therapeutic light energy to rejuvenate and refresh your skin. Designed in conjunction with the award-winning Dermalux systems, it harnesses industry-leading blue (415nm), red (633nm) and near infrared (830nm) wavelengths to offer salon-quality results, at home. In fact, it’s 3x more powerful than any other home-use LED device.
Low levels of LED light are absorbed into the skin’s cells - mimicking the natural biological process of phototherapy. This energises the skin’s cellular function allowing the skin to heal quicker and regenerate up to 200% faster. It’s no surprise that when talking about the device, The Telegraph's Lisa Armstrong commented: "The most powerful at-home LED available – and the results, from the get-go, are astonishing."
It can be used all over
While our CURRENTBODY LED Light Therapy Mask has been designed for facial use only, the Dermalux FlexMD can be used from head to toe. Simply place it into the base unit to target your face or position it flat to treat specific body areas.
There’s also 7 treatment protocols to choose from, as well as single or multi-wavelength LED treatments. Each is designed to focus on a variety of cosmetic and medical skin concerns including redness, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, ageing and more. It can also be integrated with other skin treatments to advance results. These include microdermabrasion, IPL and skin peels.
It's safe and pain-free
This device throws the saying ‘no pain, no gain’ right out of the window. LED light therapy is much safer than UV rays and you don’t need to worry about burning your skin either. Instead, the Dermalux FlexMD sends wavelengths of light into different layers of skin to promote individual repair mechanisms.
Blue light works in the epidermis layer, triggering a natural photochemical reaction and releasing singlet oxygen. This destroys the bacteria which causes acne. The dermis layer - where cell energy is produced - absorbs red light, boosting skin cell renewal, hydration levels and collagen production. Finally, near infrared is absorbed into the skin’s deepest layers where it improves blood circulation, speeding up critical reparation, strengthening the skin and calming any irritation. As well as this, LED light can also help the body to produce vitamin D - increasing your energy and serotonin levels.
The whole family can enjoy it
While you might think that LED light therapy is mainly suited for cosmetic concerns, it’s also been medically CE certified to treat acne, wound healing, psoriasis and musculoskeletal pain - including those that occur because of sports injuries. Put simply, LED phototherapy is well-known for its anti-inflammatory benefits and regenerative properties. The device can be used on all skin types (including sensitive) and is also safe for use following most cosmetics, aesthetics and surgical procedures.
It’s for this reason that the Dermalux FlexMD is popular with whole households. The standard treatment time is 30 minutes meaning it can easily fit in with busy family life, and this can also be increased and decreased as you like. No downtime also allows you to carry on with your day afterwards.
It just keeps on giving
This lightweight and portable device has been clinically proven to provide visible results after just one session. Improved skin tone, better hydration and increased luminosity are just some of the immediate effects, while deeper cell processes are stimulated for long-lasting benefits. Typically, the best results can be seen following 4-6 sessions.
We understand that cost can be a barrier when it comes to beauty treatments. While this device may come at a premium price tag, it’s a solid investment and you’ll actually save money in the long run - without the need to continuously visit a salon for top-ups. So if you’re looking for a device that offers professional LED therapy straight from the salon, that the whole household can take advantage of, why not shop the Dermalux FlexMD today?
