We are a close-contact clinic, so we'll continue to follow our COVID-19 Clinic Check List and wear our FFP2 or FFP3 masks whilst in treatment and reception, and ask clients to wear their masks whilst visiting us. We'll continue testing 2-3 times a week and we'll update via Social Media. For all Virtual Consultations for IPL Laser treatments, Medik8® Skin Peels and Minor Cosmetic treatments, please use our online booking system. For Gift Vouchers or products, please use our online shop.

Thank you as ever for supporting us.

Love always, Janis.

lightfusion™ – Clinical Trials

lightfusion™ Interim Results – September 2016


  • Objective mechanical tests clearly show improvements in surface roughness (wrinkles) one week after a four week course of lightfusion™.
  • R values are supported by Surface evaluation results:
    • A reduction in Sesm demonstrates smoother skin (up to 42% improvement)
    • A reduction in Sew demonstrates a global improvement in wrinkles (up to 47% improvement)
    • A reduction in Sesc demonstrates less scaliness of the skin, most probably due to increased hydration and improvements in cell turnover (up to 23% improvement
  • Objectively; skin post treatment is firmer and more hydrated
  • Subjective analysis supports objective results
  • No reported adverse events
  • The study also showed up to 17.6% improvement in skin hydration and 20.8% increase in skin elasticity

The basic science of Phototherapy

Soon after the discovery of lasers in the 1960s it was realised that laser therapy had the potential to improve wound healing and reduce pain, inflammation and swelling. In recent years the field sometimes known as photobiomodulation has broadened to include light-emitting diodes and other light sources, and the range of wavelengths used now includes many in the red and near infrared. The term ‘‘low level laser therapy’’ or LLLT has become widely recognised and implies the existence of the biphasic dose response or the Arndt-Schulz curve. This review will cover the mechanisms of action of LLLT at a cellular and at a tissular level and will summarise the various light sources and principles of dosimetry that are employed in clinical practice. The range of diseases, injuries, and conditions that can be benefited by LLLT will be summarised with an emphasis on those that have reported randomised controlled clinical trials. Serious life-threatening diseases such as stroke, heart attack, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury may soon be amenable to LLLT therapy.

LED Phototherapy: stimulating healing and restoring

Low-level laser (light) therapy (LLLT) is a fast-growing technology used to treat a multitude
of conditions that require stimulation of healing, relief of pain and inflammation, and
restoration of function. Although skin is naturally exposed to light more than any other
organ, it still responds well to red and near-infrared wavelengths. The photons are absorbed
by mitochondrial chromophores in skin cells. Consequently, electron transport, adenosine
triphosphate nitric oxide release, blood flow, reactive oxygen species increase, and diverse
signalling pathways are activated. Stem cells can be activated, allowing increased tissue
repair and healing. In dermatology, LLLT has beneficial effects on wrinkles, acne scars,
hypertrophic scars, and healing of burns. LLLT can reduce UV damage both as a treatment
and as a prophylactic measure. In pigmentary disorders such as vitiligo, LLLT can increase
pigmentation by stimulating melanocyte proliferation and reduce depigmentation by inhibiting
autoimmunity. Inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis and acne can also be managed.
The noninvasive nature and almost complete absence of side effects encourage
further testing in dermatology.
