Luminox Renewal System
LED Light Therapy

Luminox LED Light Therapy
Here it is — the safe and effective alternative to cosmetic surgery.  The Luminox Renewal System offers the healing and growth stimulating properties of LED light without the damage and downtime associated with Laser and IPL treatments.

A Brief History of Light Therapy
Since the time of ancient Greece, light has long been known to have healing properties. The Greeks called it "heliotherapy" which employed sunlight. Part of it's success may be attributable to to skin's production of vitamin D. Of course, sunlight also has some very damaging components in the UV end of the spectrum, so it's success was limited.

In the late 19th century, a Danish Physician, Dr. Niels Finsen, researched and demonstrated the beneficial effects of various wavelengths in the treatment of tuberculosis and other ailments. This same technology has since proven to be effective in the fields of dermatology, neurology and physiotherapy. Dr. Finsen was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1903 for his pioneering work.

In the 1960’s in Europe it was noted that certain single wavelengths had a very therapeutic effect on tissues through a process called photo-stimulation. One example is the continued practice of “light-treating” babies for jaundice, a common condition of newborns.

More recently, NASA discovered the healing and stimulating properties of single frequencies of light in its research related to zero-G environments. The Navy has also conducted studies on the effects of light therapy with wound healing and muscle regeneration. Today, this revolutionary technology has found its way to the field of esthetics in a state-of-the-art instrument that uses LED light to stimulate collagen growth and elastin formation, skin cell regeneration and anti-bacterial benefits for acne, rosacea and anti-aging clients, alike.

Numerous other institutions around the world have independently verified the results of LED light therapy. These include Stanford University, the National Cancer Institute, Massachusetts General Hospital's Wellman Labs and the
Mayo Clinic.

In this Luminox panel, we have an instrument that takes all the research and findings, packaged in an LED panel for safe and effective clinical skin care.

The Luminox Renewal System has many benefits:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, eliminating years from your skin
  • Hyperpigmentation is greatly improved with red light
  • Kills acne bacteria to reduce inflammation and clear the skin
  • Without inflammation, blemishes heal better and faster, with less scarring
  • Fibroblast, elastin and collagen production are stimulated
  • Melanin production is reduced, for less fewer brown/age spots
  • Redness and flushing are reduced
  • Pore size is reduced
  • Skin tone is improved, reducing the need for makeup
  • Luminox has been used to successfully treat eczema, psoriasis, and undefined rashes where other treatment protocols had no effect

Red and infrared wavelengths increase cellular activity at the dermal level. As we age we experience a drop in cellular activity and energy levels. With the delivery of the correct wavelengths of light, these cells are rejuvenated and blood flow is increased bringing cellular growth factors to the treated area. Red light also stimulates fibroblast, elastin and collagen production for more youthful skin.

Lasers and LEDs
Lasers produce specific single light frequencies. But Lasers have harmful side effects. Their high power-density and focused energy generates heat that damages sensitive skin tissue — it's the primary mechanism of the laser which evokes a healing response in the skin. The result is significant recovery time, possible scarring, and sometimes an increase in acne is associated with the procedure. Laser equipment is also expensive, so, as a result, the laser treatments are, too.

LEDs, (Light Emitting Diodes) have the unique ability to produce the same specific light frequencies as lasers without damaging tissue. LEDs produce a diffuse and uniform light that penetrates more deeply than laser light, and is easily applied uniformly over the area of treatment. This inherent safety means that light therapy treatments don't have the pain, discomfort  and downtime of lasers. Often the results are immediate. There are many benefits: fine lines, enlarged pores and broken capillaries are reduced; skin is smoother; pigmentation is more even, and skin is thicker and firmer.

Luminox treatments are gentle, painless, safe and effective

Luminox treatment with blue and red lightToday, LED Light Therapy is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that is gentle, painless, safe and effective.  Treatments are non-invasive and non-abrasive, yet the red light penetrates deeply into skin tissue. It stimulates gradual healing by increasing blood circulation and lymphatic activity. Blue LED Light Therapy has proven very effective against more difficult acne cases, and instances where an ongoing acne treatment appears to have stalled. In clinical studies, the blue light has been shown to generate singlet oxygen which attacks acne-causing bacteria. More than 86 percent of study participants experienced a 74% acne reduction!

With the Luminox Renewal System, we often see an immediate improvement in our clients' appearance!  If you are experiencing acne, rosacea, or need to turn back your skin's clock, LED light therapy can be included with any skin care treatment to enhance it's effect. It can also be a stand-alone treatment for a boost to your home care and clinical care program between your regular facial treatments. We have many clients who come in for affordable, weekly, 1/2 hour light treatments. And, there is no UV or other dangerous or damaging radiation exposure, so you can't over do it. Luminox' LED light therapy is a dream come true for clients with stubborn skin conditions that aren't responding to anything else.

Eastbay Acne & Skin Care Clinic has been offering LED light treatments since 2004, and we've witnessed some amazing results. Let us show your skin the light! Call us today to schedule your Luminox LED light therapy.
