LET Reds help you through the winter blues with some luxury treatments to cheer you up, perk you up and help you feel better about yourself and the weather!

Over the next three weeks, we’re going to tell you just how Reds can help you banish the winter blues…

As you’d expect at one of the North East’s leading hair and beauty salons, we can provide the right cut and colour to create the best ‘you,’ but if it’s a treatment you want rather than a new hairstyle, then our spa rooms are where you need to be.

One new treatment we’ve just introduced that is already proving extremely popular is our new Dermalux Tri-Wave LED Phototherapy machine. The Dermalux machine delivers a pain-free and very relaxing experience that is clinically proven to treat a wide variety of skin concerns, including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and can even help to reduce the effects of ageing.

The Phototherapy combines red, blue and near infra-red light emitting diode or LED light sources. The blue light can also help in the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) as it reduces the amount of melatonin released.

SAD is also known as ‘winter depression’ because the symptoms are usually more apparent and more severe during the winter.

We’ve had a great response to the Dermalux treatment, with popular local blogger Sam Czwordon-Auld saying: “After one treatment my skin was bright and glowing and so smooth to the touch. You’d think I’d had a peel or a derma pen treatment.”

To book a treatment, ring us on 0191 5110288

We have just taken delivery of a revolutionary facial machine Dermalux LED Phototherapy Tri-Wave that has received rave reviews in the national press and ringing endorsements from the celebrity world.

Our new Dermalux Tri-Wave LED Phototherapy machine delivers a pain-free and very relaxing experience that is clinically proven to treat a wide variety of skin concerns, including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and can even help to reduce the effects of ageing.

Reds owner Susan Hall said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our valued customers this treatment which has been proven to help your skin looking flawless, youthful and healthy.

“It was voted Treatment of the Year for five consecutive years at the Prestigious Aesthetic Awards and has been very positively reviewed by national newspapers and magazines.

“The effects are immediate. The therapy instantly awakens your complexion. After just one treatment your skin is incredibly hydrated, plump and radiant. Any redness or irritation is calmed. One treatment can make a real difference, but a course of treatments offers dramatic and lasting improvement in the appearance and health of the skin. Dermalux can also be used in combination with other skin treatments.”

What is Dermalux TriWave LED Phototherapy?

Dermalux™ Tri-wave LED Phototherapy is an award-winning  non-invasive hand and facial treatment that uses narrow band, non-thermal LED light energy to trigger your body’s natural cell processes to accelerate rejuvenation and repair of the skin. It can improve a poor complexion, signs of ageing (including lines and wrinkles on the face, hands or body) sunburn skin damage, pigmentation and overall skin health. The Phototherapy combines red, blue and near infra-red light emitting diode or LED light sources.

A unique, patented feature of the Dermalux system is that, unlike other competitor LED devices, all three light wavelengths can be delivered either as individual phototherapy treatments or simultaneously and in any combination.

The system is available in over 100 clinics and salons across the UK and Europe.

How does LED Phototherapy work?

As a result of ageing or skin conditions healthy cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally. Our skin has the ability to absorb certain wavelengths of light and use it as a source of energy to activate specific cellular processes to produce a therapeutic effect. It is a natural biochemical reaction similar to that of plant photo-synthesis.

Dermalux LED Phototherapy uses clinically proven wavelengths to recharge these cells, energising them to heal quicker and rejuvenate faster, promoting healing from the inside out.

The increased energy enhances cellular metabolism that in turn builds collagen, increases elasticity, boosts circulation, accelerates tissue repair or kills bacteria

Laboratory studies have shown skin cells can regenerate themselves from 150 to 200 per cent faster when exposed to certain LED wavelengths and hydration can be increased by up to 600 per cent. This whole process results in radiant, youthful and naturally healthy skin.

Dermalux LED Red

Red light type works wonders for skin rejuvenation and healing. It has a powerful anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. It is also an excellent treatment for sufferers of sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

LED Red benefits include:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin is smoother, firmer and plump
  • Evens skin tone
  • Increases hydration
  • Soothes irritation and redness
  • Shrinks open and enlarged pores
  • Stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation
  • Accelerates the healing process

Dermalux LED Blue

For Acne and Problem Skin. Blue light has powerful anti-bacterial properties that purify acne and problematic skin and help to normalise oil production.

LED Blue benefits include:

  • Powerful anti-bacterial treatment
  • Treats acne and blemishes without irritation
  • Prevents breakouts
  • Normalises oil production
  • UV-Free treatment for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis
  • Effective alternative to medication

Dermalux LED Near Infra-Red

For Anti-Ageing, Pigmentation, Wound Healing and Scars. Near Infra-Red is the most deeply absorbed wavelength by skin tissue and works synergistically with red light to achieve optimum rejuvenation and repair.

LED Near Infra-Red benefits include:

  • Advanced anti-ageing treatment
  • Tightens and firms the skin
  • Reduces pigmentation
  • Scar reduction and prevention
  • Relieves pain and inflammation
  • Improves healing time

Dermalux Combined Therapy (Tri-Wave Therapy with all 3 Wave Lengths)

For rapid and enhanced results, Reds can offer combined wavelength treatments to target multiple concerns in one session.

How safe is the treatment?

LED Phototherapy does not use heat or chemicals and the light does not contain harmful UV wavelengths and so cannot damage skin cells. Dermalux provides one of the safest ways to treat all skin types and conditions without risk of irritation, unwanted side effects or downtime.

Will the results be seen straight away?

Following a Dermalux treatment, there are some immediate visible changes in the skin but most changes occur naturally over a series of treatments. Results may continue to improve up to 4 to 6 weeks after a course as the effects of LED phototherapy continue to rejuvenate and improve the quality of the skin.

How many treatments are required?

This can vary with age, skin type and condition. A single session of Dermalux is ideal an ideal ‘pick me up’ to replenish vital hydration, restore radiance or simply to calm irritated skin. A course of treatments taken in quick succession will achieve optimum results and maintenance treatments may also be recommended.

What is Dermalux LED Phototherapy recommended for?

  • Skin Rejuvenation
  • Environmentally Damaged Skin
  • Acne and Problem Skin
  • Pigmentation
  • Rosacea and Redness
  • Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis
  • Wound Healing and Scarring
  • Restoring Radiance
