Microcurrent + Photon Light Therapy: Explained
The Dermafin utilizes micro-currents to stimulate muscles in a targeted area without causing pain. This process tightens and sculpts the skin with clinical level results. This method of therapy also activates cells underneath the skin which can lead to noticeable, lasting results for all different skin types.
These electrical pulses stimulate the muscles to contract and expand, a process known as ‘passive exercise’. This is a similar process to what the muscles experience during active exercise this works without you having to even think about it. This contracting movement causing the mucsles to tone and strengthen.
Improving your facial contours, minimising fine lines and wrinkles and resulting in smooth and even skin-tone, microcurrents reveal your ultimate radiance from the inside out.
How do facials work?
You have 43 muscles in your face. In order for them to stay toned, they need to be active—and that’s where microcurrents come into play. As your facial muscles get their workout from an microcurrent device, your body responds by increasing the output of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
ATP is the primary chemical energy source for muscular functions, enhancing overall strength and flexibility. Your body also accesses ATP for cellular functions, driving skin cell turnover and renewal for firmness and suppleness.
Consistent microcurrent use can give your jawline and cheeks a more distinct, chiseled, and contoured appearance. This technology is also reported to boost your overall cellular metabolism, increase blood circulation for a healthy glow, and support your natural lymphatic system processes to flush toxins out of the body.
Additionally, the firming and lifting of each set of muscles reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring the skin’s youthful elasticity.
Basically, as your collagen production accelerates, you benefit from all the goodness it brings.
Light (Photon) Therapy & Benefits
5 Key Benefits of Red Light
1. Renews Collagen & Brightens Complexion
Collagen and elastin are the two proteins that naturally exist in our skin as structural support. Collagen is the most copious protein in our body. It is what helps give our skin strength and has the task of replacing dead skin cells. And elastin is the connective tissue, which allows body tissue to resume their original shape after stretching or contracting. However, as you age your skin loses some of its elasticity and firmness, leading to an older complexion.
Red light reaches the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis layer. The red light emitted by Dermafin reactivates the production of collagen, resulting in an increase in collagen and elastin proteins. This leads to a brightening effect that enhances the skin’s original glow.
2. Anti-aging: Diminishes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
One reason the use of red light therapy that is growing in popularity is its anti-aging properties. Studies indicate, that when you expose skin to red light, it jump-starts the renewal process of collagen and elastin cells. This boost leads to fine lines and wrinkles to become less visible. Furthermore, red light improves the overall skin complexion, texture and firmness.
3. Wound Healing & Tissue Repair
Red light at 633 nanometers promotes wound healing and tissue repair. The red light penetrates the skin and increases the rate of cellular regeneration. Light at this wavelength reconstructs fibroblasts, keratinocytes and modulation of immune cells. Meaning, injuries and injured skin tissue recover at a much faster rate.
4. Releases Serotonin
Due to the exposure to light, your body boosts the production of the hormone serotonin. Serotonin is the body’s natural "happy hormone." That is why we tend to feel happier and more energetic during the summer months. In that period, red light can stave off moderate depression. While results may vary, you can use red light treatments as a natural stimulant and improve your mood.
5. Reduce Cellulite
Red light treatments increases the oxygenation, detoxification and blood circulation process. This series of actions reduces cellulite fat deposits. The process eliminates stagnant toxins that break down connective tissue, leading to cellulite. As a result, the fat within the connective tissue becomes less after following a red light therapy treatment.
5 Key Benefits of Green Light
1. Lighter & Smoother Skin
An excess amount of melanin, the pigment that determines hair and skin color, causes dark spots to appear on the skin. When you use the green light mode, the melanin absorbs the green light that the device emits. As a result, the body recognizes the melanin particles that the light breaks down and discards them. This leaves you with clearer skin and lighter skin tone.
2. Improves Viscose Veins
Aging brings along several skin issues that we could live without. However, thanks to green light, the appearance of spider veins and rosacea is much less conspicuous. Green light causes the small blood vessels that lie just beneath the skin to close down and disappear. Therefore, making their appearance less visible. Also, researchers indicate that green light is an effective treatment method against skin problems, such as rosacea and erythema, as it soothes the affected skin area.
3. Reduces Hyperpigmentation & Age Spots
Aside from reducing fine lines and wrinkles, green light has also been found to be highly useful in the treatment of age spots and hyperpigmentation. Instead of fading dark spots, freckles, and other age-related skin issues, it is recommended to use a light therapy device, such as the Dermafin Rejuvenation Wand. The green light emitted by the device reduces these blemishes and creates a barrier that will decrease the chance of such skin blemishes of reoccurring in the future.
4. Relieves Pain
Green light makes your muscle more flexible and is an aid for myalgia, pain in a muscle or group of muscles. As a result of exposure to green light, it eases muscle stiffness and works as a pain reliever in case of rheumatism, arthritis and muscular pain.
5. Wound Healing & Tissue Repair
Green light has wound and tissue repair capabilities. It also has a sterilizing function that cleanses the skin and increases cell growth, enabling your skin to repair the affected area.
5 Key Benefits of Blue Light
1. Treats Acne
Blue light is UV-free. The light is an effective treatment for acne because it helps destroy the bacteria that causes skin irritations. As a result, researchers and aestheticians advise the use of blue light in the treatment of acne.
2. Prevents Oily Skin
Oily skin is the term used to describe the increased production of sebum, which is in turn caused by an imbalance in hormones. Blue light reduces the activity of the sebaceous gland so that it does not produce as much oil.
3. Reduces Blackheads
Aside from using blue light to decrease acne and oily skin, you can also use it to treat blackheads. The blue light penetrates the skin, consequently, killing the bacteria that causes blackheads. Your body discards the waste, leaving you with unblocked pores an blemish free skin.
4. Effective Treatment for Eczema & Psoriasis
Several studies indicate that blue light can be useful in treating skin related issues such as, eczema and psoriasis, which are inflammation of the skin. Blue light suppresses the cells that cause the inflammation in the skin. Over a period of several session, these cells calm down, and the physical symptoms become much less visible.
5. Releases the "Happy Hormone"
Blue light boosts the production of the hormone serotonin. Also, called the happy hormone. During the winter months, our exposure to sunlight is very limited, which can lead to seasonal depression. However, by adding a light therapy session into your weekly routine, you can stave off negative feelings.
