What is Dermalux™ LED Phototherapy?
‘Dermalux’ is a non-invasive treatment that harnesses the power of pure light to accelerate the skin’s natural rejuvenation and repair processes.
At the Ruth Eaton Clinic, we prescribe the treatment because it is clinically proven and effective for a wide range of skin concerns including anti-ageing, acne and sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
Dermalux™ is a pain free and relaxing treatment which is suitable for all skin types and conditions, without any downtime. Utilising long established Light Emitting Diode technology, the treatment is a significant development in the battle to keep our skin looking flawless, youthful and healthy!
The visible effects are immediate; Dermalux™ instantly awakens a tired and dull complexion. After just one treatment skin is incredibly hydrated, plump and radiant and redness and irritation is calmed. LED Phototherapy also promotes a feeling of wellbeing, helping to relieve the stresses and strains of everyday life!
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 to enhance results and improve healing time.

- Environmentally Damaged Skin
- Acne and Problem Skin
- Rosacea and Redness
- Eczema, Psoriasis and Dermatitis
- Wound Healing and Scarring

How does LED Phototherapy work?
As a result of ageing, problem skin conditions or trauma, 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 which in turn builds collagen, increases elasticity, boosts circulation, accelerates tissue repair or kills bacteria.
Laboratory studies have shown that 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%. This whole process results in radiant, youthful and naturally healthy skin.

Dermalux™ Combined Therapy
For rapid and enhanced results, Dermalux™ offers combined wavelength treatments to target multiple concerns in one session. Your skin care professional will advise you on the best treatment combination for your individual needs.
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.
