Do you ever wake up and feel like your skin looks dull, sallow or just ‘meh’? Is your skin slow to heal, marks from pimples linger, your breakouts never seem to clear up? Is your skin red, inflamed, always flaring up with the slightest change in weather?

We always get so many questions about Max or more formally known as MAX + LED Light Therapy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So, who is he and what exactly does MAX do? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Well Max as we have fondly named him is a facial treatment which can be a stand alone treatment or added on to a facial service. This treatment is non-invasive, UV free and all about working below your skins surface, to communicate with cell function. Light, broken down into visible wavelengths interacts with individual cell functions to calm inflammation, is kryptonite to acne, stimulates collagen production, hydrates deeper layers and restores perfect balance to your skin. Specific LED wavelengths are kryptonite to acne and the inflammatory⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Who is MAX suited to?

This treatment is perfect for all skin types and conditions and is integral to restoring impaired, sluggish, inflamed skin conditions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We use a MAX+LED machine- known for wavelength precision (vital for true cellular rejuvenation) and cellular response time, Max+ LED uses several specific coloured wavelengths that each help the skin in a different unique way. The layers of the skin are comprised of a high content of blood and water which allows them to easily and readily absorb and accept light. Once absorbed into the skin the different colours encourage cell communication to rebalance, heal and rejuvenate the skin.

How Does LED Max & Light Therapy Work?

Different colour lights penetrate at different depth in the skin, therefore you’ll use a combination of different lights depending on your desired result. So, depending on your treatment when the therapeutic light energy is in the correct wavelength, the cells in the dermis layer of skin will convert that light energy into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the fuel that the cell uses to do its job. The fibroblast cells in the dermis layer have the job of producing collagen (which give the skin fullness or that plumped look) and elastin (which give the skin the ability to bounce back). Thus, LED gives the cells a ‘full tank of fuel’ and these fibroblast cells start to produce collagen and elastin like when one was 20-25 years old.The result is the complexion is plumped up with new collagen (which pushes the folds of the wrinkles out) and new elastin (which helps to tighten the skin and give it more elasticity). Another drawcard is that there’s no downtime and it can be done on a lunch break. In-salon treatments are recommended two to three times a week for a course of four to six weeks. Ideal for pre-wedding prep or before a big event, a session only takes between 15-30 mins. It’s also an effective and pain-free approach to treating skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation and adult acne.

The results speak for themselves!!!
