Is the treatment effective? Yes. The LEDs chosen for lightfusion™ are dual wavelength, this means that they can emit both red and near infra-red light at the same time. Both of these wavelengths can stimulate the intricate cellular processes that stimulate collagen production, increase skin elasticity and promote greater blood flow and tissue oxygenation.
Who is suitable for lightfusion™? Because lightfusion™ creates no heat it’s suitable for all skin types, and is clinically proven to improve skin tone and texture, and reduce inflammation.
What is the treatment like? The lightfusion™ treatment is just like a facial but the effects go much deeper and are more visible and long lasting. Following deep cleansing, the lightfusion™ hydrogel mask is applied, which is cooling and deeply hydrating and the device is then applied over this. After 10 minutes both are removed and aftercare skincare is applied to the skin. You will be given a skincare product to use at home on the evening of the treatment that has been specially formulated to enhance the effect of the treatment and maximise the receptive nature of the skin following lightfusion™.
Does it cover the entire face? It doesn’t need to. Scientific research has shown that the effect of low level light therapy spreads throughout the tissue. Just like one rain drop in a lake, the effect of one drop ripples out and spreads much wider than the original rain drop. The lightfusion™ treatment pads have been specially designed to cover as much of the face as possible while not being claustrophobic like traditional panel type LEDs.
Is it hot? No. Unlike traditional filament bulbs LEDs do not contain a filament. They produce light energy with low-level thermal energy. The lightfusion™ treatment heads do not get hot or feel hot against the skin.
Will it damage my eyes? No. lightfusion™ has been tested to the international standard for eye safety EN62471. In addition the design of the therapy heads means that the device does not directly shine into your eyes, which means the treatment is more comfortable and less claustrophobic than traditional LED devices.
Will it help my products to penetrate better? Yes. Low level light therapy increases blood flow and tissue oxygenation within skin treated with red and near infra-red light, helping the skin utilise active ingredients more effectively.
Can I combine lightfusion™ with other aesthetic treatments? Yes. lightfusion™ will enhance and accelerate the results from other treatments particularly facials, microdermabrasion, peels, microneedling and fillers and you can use lightfusion™ after laser treatment to reduce downtime. Because lightfusion™ builds healthy skin from the inside out it complements other treatments that work in other ways.
What results can I expect and how long will they last? After a single Photofacial skin may feel firmer and tighter with a reduced pore size, skin will feel softer and smoother due to the instant hydration and the enhanced absorption of the ingredients in the hydrogel mask. Your complexion will look fresher and more vibrant due to the increased blood flow, tissue oxygenation and increased cellular ATP. A course of 4 treatments will help improve fine lines and wrinkles and will improve skin firmness, elasticity and any pigmentary issues. Results can last for several months following a course of 4 lightfusion™ photofacials. However, maintenance sessions are advised to ensure longer lasting results.
Can I over treat? No, because lightfusion™ uses the non-thermal properties of photobiomodulation, it does not damage skin cells. During a treatment skin cells reach a light absorption level at which point they no longer absorb light.
Will I feel claustrophobic? No. Unlike other traditional LED panel systems that surround the face lightfusion™ 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 delivering two wavelengths at the correct energy from one diode making the device light and enabling treatment times to be reduced to 10 minutes.
