Photo Facial Rejuvenation:
What is the LumiFacial and how does it work?
The LumiFacial treatment combines the application & interaction of four different colors ... not just one.
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, reduces pigmentation and eliminates the redness associated with the use of chemical peel and bleaching products.
Yellow light at 590 nm
used for its healing, draining and detoxifying properties. It is absorbed by the body fluids in the lymph & blood circulatory systems and promotes wound healing. It 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. It 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.
