Promoting your own natural healing process.
Different wave-lengths of light have varying effects on the skin – the light can be used to reduce bacteria on the surface of the skin, reduce inflammation and/or stimulate the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Light therapy can plump up your skin, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance - all with no pain and no downtime.
At Temple Clinic we offer:
- Omnilux (in clinic treatment)
- Light Fusion (in clinic treatment)
- Lustre Pure Light Pro - hands free, blue light treatment for acne (home based treatment)
"I have just completed a course of 8 Omnilux light therapy treatments which had been recommended to help calm and hydrate my sensitive and dehydrated skin. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of the treatments I received. Not only did the procedure improve the look and feel of my skin, it also had tremendous mood boosting effects, especially at this time of year when I can suffer from Season Affective Disorder. I found the light and the warmth relaxing and the 20 minutes under the light gave me a chance to switch off. I often referred to it as my ‘little holiday’. I am looking forward to receiving my next one in a few weeks time!"
WHAT HAPPENS AT MY APPOINTMENT?
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed before lying under the light for around 20 minutes. During this time, you may have a relaxing arm or hand massage. After the treatment you will have specific skincare applied depending on the condition of your skin and the option of mineral make up. Aftercare advice will be given.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cells within the body contain receptors that naturally absorb light. When the body is exposed to light, these receptors absorb the light waves. This process stimulates normal cellular activity that occurs within the cell; light therapy accelerates these processes making the cell more efficient and able to deliver visible improvements in the skin.
WHO IS THIS TREATMENT FOR?
Light Therapy is perfect for when your skin just isn’t looking its best and you are looking for a rejuvenating treatment that will leave your skin glowing, more youthful and radiant. The light therapy promotes your own natural healing processes to brighten your skin and can be effective in tackling problems such as acne, rosacea and eczema. Even the most sensitive skin responds to light therapy. It is quick and has no adverse side effects such as pain, redness or irritation.
CAN I COMBINE LIGHT THERAPY WITH OTHER TREATMENTS TO ENHANCE RESULTS?
Yes! In fact we perform a lot of our other treatments alongside Light Therapy and these can be done at the same appointment. Advice will be given at time of booking.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Light Therapy starts at £40 per treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
With Light Fusion™ and Omnilux, excellent results can be seen after each treatment and the beneficial effects of the light carries on working hours after the treatment is completed. For Lustre Pure Light Pro, noticeable results may be seen in as little as 4 weeks.
