Using Light Therapy to Heal Skin Conditions and Prevent Aging by Kathy Anne Resasco

Various colors in the light spectrum vibrate at certain frequencies which affect cellular activities of the skin.  Light therapy has been proven to be the best for acne which can cause great distress to sufferers.  A blue and red light mixture seems to be most effective treatment for acne, reducing the number of spots by three-quarters, says research.  Acne can prove stubbornly resistant to both over-the-counter creams and washes and antibiotics.  Some acne does clear up significantly when exposed to UV light, but this treatment increases risk of skin cancer.  Doctors at Hammersmith Hospital in London, used UV-free blue and red light wavelengths for 15 minutes each day on acne patients.  At the end of a 12-week period, these patients showed a 76% decrease in acne.  This was better than those treated only with normal white light.  Dr. Tony Chu, who led the trial, found that the combination of lights both attacked bacteria contributing to the acne and promoted healing in the skin.

LumiFacial offers a treatment that combines the application and interaction of four different light colors, that can be used for not only treating acne but sun damage, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation as well.  12 pre-programmed treatments create micronized currents and photo-energy.  Blue light at 470 nm (nanometers), improves acne-prone skin.  It penetrates into the superficial dermis and has a calming and regulating effect on the sebaceous gland.  Green light at 525 nm, decreases melanin production which causes age spots and other discolorations of the skin, reduces pigmentation and eliminates the redness associated with the use of chemical peel and bleaching products.  Yellow light at 590 nm is used for its healing, draining and detoxifying properties.  It is absorbed by the body fluids in the lymph and blood circulatory systems and promotes wound healing.  Yellow light also increases lymphatic flow to evacuate more waste products and boosts cellular activity.

Red light at 640 nm, increases collagen production by 5-fold in the skin, triggering repair mechanisms and stimulating fibroblast cells and cell growth.  The fibroblasts are responsible for producing collagen which softens the skin, smoothes wrinkles and gives the skin a more youthful appearance.  Red light also increases circulation and speeds up the healing process by carrying more oxygen and nutrients to the skin.  Red-spectrum light is absorbed by all skin layers especially the dermis.





Only the LumiFacial combines all four colors of the most healing part of the light spectrum in one programmed treatment.  The microcomputer automatically adjusts a bled of colors and wavelengths needed for specific treatments.  From this combination, results are optimized.  Each color application supplements the effects of the others used during the course of the treatment, leading to a further amplification of these successful photo-energy procedures.  LumiFacial treats:  Acne Vulgaris, Acne with irritation, Pigmentation problems on normal to dry skin, Pigmentation problems on combination to oily skin, Redness on normal to dry skin, Redness on combination to oily skin, Photo-aging on normal to dry skin and Photo-aging on combination to oily skin.

Light therapy can also be used to slow down the effects of aging and greatly improve appearance, making you look years younger.  The LumiLift treatment is a complete photo-rejuvenation procedure that combines the effects of light energy, micronized currents and HF polarized currents to produce skin rejuvenation that is safe, comfortable and effective.

Aging of the skin occurs on three levels:  epidermal, dermal and in the muscle tissue beneath, producing dehydration lines, dull and lifeless complexion, expression wrinkles, deep wrinkles around the lips, frown lines, sagging jowls and naso-labial folds.  LumiLift reaches down into all three levels to rejuvenate skin tissue and lift muscles, erasing years, something that light alone cannot do.

While the ESLDs are at work, LumiLift transmits micronized currents through the lifting electrodes.  Harmonizing with the natural bioelectrical currents found in the body, they reconstruct or re-educate muscle tissue, achieving visible lifting results, restoring facial contour and slowing the aging process.  LumiFacial and LumiLift are the most holistic and less invasive of all the anti-aging skin treatments on the market today.
