lightfusion™

A QUICK INTRODUCTION

lightfusion™ has been developed to harness the power of light and deliver it as a safe, effective and relaxing Photofacial.

lightfusion™ gives visible results in just one treatment by stimulating cellular mechanisms to counteract the natural ageing process and create long lasting results. A course of treatments can help to improve fine lines, pigmentation, inflammation, acne, acne roseacea, redness and sensitivity as well as support overall skin health.

The lightfusion™ Photofacial combines state of the art LED technology with its exclusive hydrogel mask developed to optimise the light wavelengths. It is impregnated with active ingredients such as probiotics, so superior results can be seen after just one session. Following your Photofacial, you will be given a complimentary sachet of lightfusion™ Sleep Recovery Cream to use later the same evening to enable the effects of the light to carry on working hours after the treatment is completed (apply as a mask for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off, although for best results, leave on overnight).

A NEW NON-INVASIVE PHOTOFACIAL

The lightfusion™ LED is a new way to deliver advanced, non-invasive photofacials in a matter of minutes. Combined with a proprietary hydrogel mask, the lightfusion™ device leaves your skin visibly plumper and more radiant after just one treatment, simultaneously stimulating cellular processes beneath the surface of the skin to create a healthy, long-lasting effect. lightfusion™ uses state of the art LEDs that deliver specific wavelengths of light to energise skin cells and encourage fibroblast activity, helping promote collagen and elastin that are essential for the fight against the ageing process.

WHAT IS LIGHTFUSION™?

WHAT IS PHOTOTHERAPY – HOW DOES IT WORK?

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. These reactions first begin when the light is absorbed by the cells mitochondria and continue to work even after the light has been switched off. Phototherapy is not a new science and today over 1,000 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

BE FLEXIBLE WITH LIGHTFUSION™

The patented lightfusion™ photofacial system takes non-ablative facial rejuvenation to a new level. The system is easily incorporated into your existing facial treatments and skincare regime and works as a single standalone treatment or as a course of 4. Combine lightfusion™ with your existing microdermabrasion protocol, your favourite peels or other aesthetic procedures such as microneedling, injectables and other light devices to enhance results.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS LIGHTFUSION™?

lightfusion™ is a professional grade light emitting diode device for the treatment of periorbital wrinkles and pigmented skin. 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.

WHAT IS THE LIGHTFUSION™ PHOTOFACIAL?

lightfusion™ photofacial combines state of the art LED technology and a specially formulated hydrogel mask. lightfusion™ has been designed to deliver light directly to the skin, ensuring that the maximum amount of light hits its cellular targets and is not wasted. Combined with a proprietary hydrogel mask developed specifically to transmit light and impregnated with active ingredients such as marine collagen that is absorbed into the skin, superior results can be seen after just one session. The photofacial is completed at home with the addition of a sleep recovery cream. Applied at night on the day of the photofacial the sleep recovery cream benefits from the effects of the light that carry on working hours after the treatment.

HOW DOES LIGHTFUSION™ WORK?

lightFusion™ uses two clinically proven wavelengths of light 633nm or red light and 830nm or near infra red light. These wavelengths have been shown repeatedly in clinical studies to be absorbed by cells stimulating ATP the energy source of the cell and and a cascade of cellular processes that stimulate collagen and elastin production and improve blood flow and tissue oxygenation helping skin cells absorb topical skincare products. In addition red and infrared light helps reduce inflammation, accelerate wound healing and help reduce brown spots and pigmentation.

ARE LEDs SAFE?

Yes, the lightfusion™ LED device is tested to an international standard demonstrating its safety. Because lightfusion™ doesn’t expose your eyes to the light it’s less uncomfortable and less claustrophobic than traditional salon LED systems and you won’t need to wear eye protection.

IS LIGHTFUSION™ DIFFERENT TO LASER TREATMENT?

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.

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR LIGHTFUSION™?

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.

CAN I COMBINE LIGHTFUSION™ WITH OTHER TREATMENTS?

Yes, lightfusion™ will enhance and accelerate the results from other treatments. You can combine lightfusion™ with existing facials, microdermabrasion, peels, rollering or microneedling and fillers and you can use lightfusion™ after laser treatment to reduce downtime. Because lightfusion™ builds healthy skin from the inside out it compliments other treatments that work in other ways.

CAN I TREAT OTHER AREAS OF THE BODY?

Yes, the face panels can be used to treat the décolletage area and other parts of the body such as the abdomen. lightfusion™ can be combined with other body treatments.

IS IT CLAUSTROPHOBIC?

No, unlike other LED systems that surround the face this device is specifically designed to deliver a comfortable photofacial to the skin, it does not cover the eyes or feel heavy on the skin. The LEDs used are the first of their kind to deliver two wavelengths at the correct energy from one diode, making the device lightweight and enabling treatment times to be reduced to just 10 minutes.

DOES IT MATTER THAT MY WHOLE FACE IS NOT COVERED BY LEDs?

No, light therapy works through primary and secondary mechanisms so even if the light does not cover a specific area, cells will still be stimulated in this area because of the biochemical cascade that takes place within and between the cells.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

After a single photofacial you will see firmer, tighter skin with a reduced pore size and skin will feel softer and smoother due to the instant hydration and enhanced absorption of the ingredients in the hydrogel mask. Your complexion will look more vibrant and fresher due to the increased blood flow, tissue oxygenation and increased cellular ATP.

HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

Results can last for several months following a course of 4 lightfusion™ photofacials. However, maintenance sessions are advised to ensure longer-lasting results.
