Dermalux treatments for Rosacea
Dermalux, red and near infra-red light, is proven to have an anti-inflammatory and healing response for rosacea sufferers and can provide you with immediate relief from the chronic symptoms.
When you suffer with rosacea your skin has a reduced capacity to counteract the negative effects of environmental factors, in particular free radicals which cause the increased inflammatory response in your skin. Dermalux helps increase the levels of an enzyme, called superoxide dismutase, which acts as an anti-oxidant to neutralise the free radicals affecting your skin.
