It is this powerful combination that delivers undeniable results, leaving you with plump, hydrated and glowing skin.
Customised to your unique skin concerns, our LED treatments use the industry leading MediLUX device for 5 wavelengths of power packed, medical grade light therapy.
LED acne management targets acne-prone areas to reduce and prevent acne-causing bacteria, active breakouts and inflammation for a clearer, brighter complexion.
LED age management stimulates collagen and elastin to reduce the appearance of superficial wrinkles, neck lines, and other signs of ageing.
Skin Tone Correction
LED pigmentation correction effectively fades and removes age spots, sunspots and discolouration to improve overall skin tone, balance and radiance.
LED redness reduction soothes and detoxifies the skin, reducing rosacea, skin redness and irritation.
LED dermal repair penetrates the subcutaneous layer of the skin, stimulating blood flow and reducing skin and tissue inflammation by speeding up healing.
HOW DO MEDILUX TREATMENTS WORK?
LED treatments with MediLUX utilise 1,500 powerful light emitting diodes ranging from blue to green, yellow, red and near-infrared. Each light wavelength targets different specific skin concerns, and treatment is commonly used to address acne congestion, facial redness, pigmentation, uneven tone, neck lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing.
Reduces sebaceous actvity and acne vulgaris. Works to clear congestion and kills acne-causing bacteria.
Assists with skin tone correction and aids detoxication to reduce redness and irritation for a balanced, calm complexion.
Stimulates collagen production and assists wound repair to naturally heal and regenerate skin from within. Beneficial for rosacea and post-laser treatments.
Increases blood circulation and lymphatic ow to encourage cellular renewal and promote a youthful complexion.
Increases white blood cell production to regenerate, rejuvenate, tighten and repair inflamed and ageing skin. Works to boost ATP for deep cellular regeneration and wound healing.
Are MediLUX treatments suitable for me?
MediLUX treatments are safe, comfortable and suitable for all skin types. During consultation, your clinician will discuss a treatment plan tailored to your individual skin concerns.
What is the difference between Red Light LED and Near-Infrared LED?
Red light targets the dermal layers, providing excellent results in collagen and elastin synthesis.
Near-infrared light is able to penetrate even deeper in the dermis — reaching the subcutaneous layer of the skin and muscle to enable deep tissue repair and cellular regeneration.
Can MediLUX LED treatments be combined with other aesthetic treatments?
MediLUX treatments are restorative by nature and will optimise results when paired with other skincare-based and technology-enhanced treatments.
Collagen Induction Therapy with eDermastamp
Designed for clinical skin rejuvenation of the face, hands, neck, décolletage and body our skin needling Collagen Induction Therapy treatments with eDermaStamp® are ideal for:
Fine line and wrinkle reduction
Skin rejuvenation and healing
A volumised, plumper looking complexion
Acne and facial scarring reduction
Stretch mark and body scarring reduction
Increased skin elasticity and firmness
Improvements in skin texture and tone
Because client comfort, safety and results are our top priority we choose eDermaStamp® for our treatments. This industry leading micro-needling technology is German engineered and
listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Comfortable Treatment, Enhanced Results
Unlike other needling technologies, the medical-grade micro-needles of eDermaStamp® by Dermaroller® are non-traumatic, cone-shaped needles that strategically displace the skin
during the puncture process. This creates a micro-wound that seals within minutes of treatment. These precision-manufactured needles reduce the occurrence of undesirable micro-needling side effects such as bruising, swelling and significant downtime.
At 150 strokes per second, the eDermaStamp® can safely glide over the skin without scratching or tearing the skin. Poor quality micro-needling pens traditionally operate at 100-120 strokes per second. This slower insertion rate can cause scratches and micro-tears in the tissue as the tip moves across the face. Respecting the integrity of the epidermis and dermis, eDermaStamp® uses fast, atraumatic (non-traumatic) perforations to gently trigger the generation of new tissue.
Enhanced Skincare Infusions
Micro-needling produces microchannels that transport our targeted corrective skincare products into the deepest layers of the skin. This allows for increased absorption and effectiveness of active skincare ingredients.
Frequently Asked Questions
What happens during treatment?
Surgical-grade micro-needles create tiny wounds that accelerate the body’s natural healing process and work to repair the skin through increased production of collagen and elastin.
Are treatments painful?
Thanks to the optimal needle count, needle design and speed of treatment many clients find treatments with eDermaStamp® involve minimal discomfort and are more comfortable than treatments with standard micro-needling devices.
What happens after treatment?
Depending on treatment intensity you may experience redness and minor pin-point bleeding immediately after a micro-needling treatment. Post-treatment redness may appear like a mild sunburn and last up to 3 days. Your clinician will recommend an aftercare plan and a post-treatment skin care product to assist in skin hydration and accelerating your results.
How many treatments are required?
Clients are able to see results in as little as 13 days with collagen production formulating 6 weeks post-treatment. Depending on the treatment area and desired outcome, most clients will require 4-6 treatments to achieve their best results.
Before and After
Lumixa: The future of light therapy
Lumixa is a topical gel developed by FB Dermatology, the makers of Kleresca that contains a fluorophore with an energy profile that is activated when placed under a 415nm – 465nm wavelength (blue) LED light. The activated Lumixa gel converts blue light into Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE), which stimulates the skin's own repair mechanisms to heal at the cellular level.
Treatments with Lumixa stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen, target the intrinsic signs of ageing and reactivate the skin matrix.
"Fluorejuvenation": stimulation of regeneration mechanisms
"Skin gym": reindorces natural defence mechanisms
