XEN Light Emitting Diode (LED) Technology is a proven, safe and painless treatment to both improve your skin’s appearance as well as treat various skin conditions non-invasively without any downtime whatsoever.
Being non-invasive it is suitable for all skin types and colours.
The Xen LED Machine is capable of delivering intense levels of Red, Infra-Red or Blue Light depending on the skin condition being targeted.
For example, Red Light would be selected for general skin rejuvenation and improving overall skin appearance. On the other hand, Blue Light which fights off and kills bacteria, would be useful in the treatment and control of acne.
LED Light Therapy actually works by stimulating the mitochondria in the skin cells that produce cell energy. These stimulated ‘powerhouses’ of energy within the cells then deliver the following positive effects on the skin:
Rest assured, NO Ultraviolet Light is emitted by the machine to burn or prematurely age your skin.
Both the Red and IR Light modes employed are within the “Optical Window” of biological tissue and simply work by stimulating the natural regeneration and repair processes of the skin. As such, they are useful for treating a variety of conditions such as:
The choice of the Red and/or Infra-Red Light Modes will be made by your Skin Therapist at your initial consultation.
Your Red or IR LED treatment will be carried out over a relaxing 10-20 minute non-invasive, non-ablative and painless treatment session. The initial effects that you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After a course of treatments, you will also begin to notice an improvement in tone, clarity and texture.
Like the Red and IR Light treatments, Blue Light Therapy is a non-ablative, non-invasive and painless treatment which uses LED technology within the Blue spectrum.
Blue Light has a relatively low penetration into tissue due to its shorter wavelength. As Blue Light reacts with bacteria, the Blue LED’s are ideal for providing a purifying anti-bacterial effect on the skin, effectively eradicating bacteria that play a role in the development of inflamed acne lesions.
Blue Light is a gentle treatment with no skin sensitivity afterwards as can occur with other anti-bacterial skin treatments.
Your Blue Light Therapy will be carried out over several relaxing and painless 20-minute non-invasive, non-ablative treatment sessions.
Before starting any treatment, you will need to remove all makeup, sunscreen and any contact lenses.
You will then be provided with safety eyewear which you must keep on at all times during your treatment session as the light will be positioned close to your face.
Each session will last 10-20 minutes.
As your skin will look perfectly normal after the treatment, you can return to work and social activities immediately.
During and after the treatment, you will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
