LED phototherapy… let there be Healite!
While we know it might sound unusual to encourage the use of a light source on your skin, Healite ll breaks those rules with its’ game-changing technology which both heals and promotes a more youthful and radiant skin – and more!
What is it and why should I have it?
Low level light therapy with HEALITE ll is the therapeutic use of light at a cellular level. It stimulates collagen and elastin production while also repairing and intensely hydrating. This enhances your skin’s tone, luminosity and texture. It also stimulates the healing process at a cellular level repairing and reversing damage which makes it an excellent treatment for any post, invasive or minimally invasive procedure.
How does it work?
Healite II LED Therapy is unique as it uses photo sequencing technology (PST). It is the only device that offers the pre-emptive micro low level yellow light as a pre-conditioning wave length to activate the cells in the epidermis for one minute, which makes them receptive to the red light. The red light then penetrates deeper into the dermis, increasing blood flow and cellular activity and stimulating collagen production.
What will happen at the appointment?
We will firstly assess the areas you have concerns with. Then your skin is cleansed before we concentrate the light on the area being treated. You will feel a pleasant warmth – you might even liken it to the days when we used to lie in the sun on the beach, before we knew better… One session takes around 30 minutes and are best experienced no more than two to three times weekly. Results can be seen after just one treatment, with visible improvements each session following. The most dramatic results are usually achieved in 8 – 10 sessions, but during your initial appointment we will advise what is needed to align with your desired outcome.
Will it help my skin?
Yes indeed! And what’s more, it’s painless, safe (even during pregnancy), clinically proven for all ages and skin types. HEALITE ll can be used on both the face and body for the treatment of skin rejuvenation, age-management, acne, superficial skin lesions, pain relief and wound healing. It promotes numerous other skin correcting treatments.
Here’s a list of areas that will benefit from a HEALITE ll treatment:
Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
Increase blood flow to tissue
Relief for muscle and joint pain
Should I have HEALITE ll or Dermapen® 4?
Dermapen uses the concept of “NATURAL HEALING” to get results treating many Skin Conditions such as Acne, Acne Scarring, Melasma, Stretch Marks, Hyper/Hypo Pigmentation, Wrinkles, Fine lines and many imperfections or skin conditions.
DERMAPEN stimulates collagen induction by harnessing the body’s ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-trauma. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,920 vertical micro channels per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalising various skin functions.
LED THERAPY is an every-day term for the science of photobiomodulation. It has been proven effective for a wide range of HEALING and rejuvenating uses including anti-aging, hair loss prevention & regrowth, skin conditions, wound care, pain relief, and much more.
Looking at Both Treatments you may feel they are the same,, but they actually work quite differently ( and can in fact be complementary in a course of treatments, your therapist can best advise on this and will tailor a program specifically for you)
By design, LED uses light as energy. This allows it to have a specific target to treat in the skin, such as pigmentation, wounds and is a very effective and selective treatment.
Microneedling is the mechanical method of creating thousands of tiny channels of injury all over a treatment area that force the skin to heal. The results are not selective to a specific area, but you can see immense and global improvement in many issues by nature of causing collagen regeneration and skin turnover.
