What is PDT(Photo Dynamic Therapy) System?
PDT/LED is a professional salon facial treatment, using the power of pure red and blue light to deliver a totally natural method of skin rejuvenation.
How does it work?
PDT/LED works with the body´s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing and deliver an effective photofacial. Clients in trials have reported an overall lifting and hydrating effect, an improvement in skin tone and texture, an evening-out of pigmentation and, in some cases, a smoothing effect on fine lines and wrinkles.
Is it safe?
The light source has been used in hospital dermatology for more than ten years for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer without any hazards or complications associated with light treatment.
I´ve heard lasers are dangerous
Don´t worry, the PDT light is NOT a laser. The regulatory authorities in many countries have also given it their seal of approval.
Is the light hot?
No! The scientifically designed light source cannot produce harmful UVA, UVB or infrared radiation. You will experience a pleasant warm feeling from the light beam. Clients have reported a feeling of well-being and relaxation during and after treatment.
Who cannot have the treatment?
The light is very gentle, so the main contra-indications are due to photosensitivity. We would not administer the light if you have epilepsy or porphyria. We also require ladies who are pregnant to obtain their doctor´s consent for treatment. Your salon will discuss the contra-indications with you before treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
PDT/LED can be administered as a single “pick-me-up” photofacial treatment for tired or polluted skin, or as a course of treatments. A typical course is usually three treatments, carried out within a week. After your initial course of three treatments your therapist will assess your response to the treatment. Only if you and your therapist are happy with the results will you continue with additional treatments. Your therapist will advise you on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs.
How long will the treatment take?
Your first treatment will take 45 minutes, allowing for your initial consultation. Ongoing treatments will typically be 30 minute appointments, during which, the light is administered for 20 minutes.
Is there any downtime with the treatment?
No! Unlike laser therapy there is no need for recovery time.
Will I see results straight away?
Many clients experience an immediate effect, however, every client will be different. The initial effects you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion, often after the first treatment. The length of the course, and skin type treated, will determine the results seen on fine lines and wrinkles.
How long will the results last?
This varies according to skin type and lifestyle. When you have completed your course, we would usually recommend that you have one maintenance treatment on a 4-6 week basis, as this will prolong the results achieved.
Is PDT/LED suitable for men?
Yes! This is a very effective treatment for both men and women. It is non-invasive and easy to perform.
What is the cost for PDT treatment?
Every salon has its own pricing structure, so the price you pay will depend upon the programs that each salon offers.
Can PDT/LED be used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments?
PDT/LED is offered as part of a salon facial. The purity and safety of the light means it can be used with many skin care products and cosmetic treatments to further enhance their effect.
