Body Contour is delighted to be able to offer Photodynamic therapy. This cutting edge LED technology was developed as a non-surgical light therapy to stimulate the skins own renewal process.
The LED system consists of three different wavelengths; infrared, red and blue. These specific wavelengths excite particular cell activity and depending on the specific condition you are treating, can now offer clients a non-invasive treatment that promotes healthy skin function
Rosacea is actually one of the most common skin disorders, affecting 1 in 20 Floridians and yet very little is known about its causes. Starting with facial flushing, rosacea usually progresses to persistent redness, thickening of the skin, visible capillaries and then to painful inflammation and raised red bumps. It is embarrassing and very difficult to hide.
The management of rosacea focuses on the use of the red and in some cases the infared phototherapy. This combination of light stimulates the cells essential for boosting the immune function, clearing damaged tissue and building new cells to form healthy new tissue. This treatment can be also used to calm the flare ups that inevitably occur.
How many treatments do I need?
Clinical trials show ten treatments are recommended with monthly on-going treatments for maintenance of rosacea and to continue to improve the skin’s overall health. These are done twice a week over a five week period. The treatments are completely pain-free and are 20 minutes in duration.
