Pre/Post treatment instructions

It is important that the treated area be cleansed prior to starting any treatment session. In order to maximize your treatment, it is recommended that you drink at least 1/2 glass of water before and after all treatment sessions, practice healthy eating habits, limit sun bathing, alcohol consumption, and smoking while undergoing your series of light therapy sessions and up to six weeks following your treatment.

Most clients will continue to see a marked improvement in their skin over the 6-12 week treatment period even after your initial LED mask sessions have concluded.

As with any cosmetic treatment, individual clinical results will vary from person to person. The great thing about owning your own personal mask is that you are not limited to the number of treatments you can have each week (however we recommend 3 to 7 x 20 minutes sessions per week initially) it is easy to maintain your results (2 to 4  x 20 minute sessions thereafter) to enable you maintain your desired results. Most people require a number of 20 minute treatment sessions over several weeks with gradual results occurring over time.

*Patients who frequently use anti-inflammatory and aspirin products often require more treatments to achieve desired results.

How does light therapy work?WEBSITE - SKIN

The Aduro facial masks use special light that is packed full of energy in the form of photons, and when shined onto the skin these photons penetrate to certain levels of body tissue.

These photons then transfer their energy into a form that the body can use called ‘cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy’ and increase blood flow by the signaling of Nitric Oxide.

ATP is the body’s fuel for energy. The more energy we have, the more the body can use this energy for proper function, such as repair and rejuvenation.

Super-charged cells from exposure to the Aduro light masks then prompt skin fibroblasts to produce increased collagen, elastin proteins and stimulate the body’s natural healing and rejuvenating processes, while increased blood flow brings in more blood and nutrients to the area.

What is the temperature; will it hurt or burn the skin?

The Aduro operates at “2°C above ambient” which is a perfect for feeling relaxed, comfortable and opening the pores to the skin. It will not burn anyone’s skin.

Is the light harmful to the eyes and body

The light can be experienced as bright. Therefore we recommend that you always and use the protective googles provided with your mask and close your eyes during each treatment.

The treatment is pain free, non-invasive, requires no surgery and is a completely safe and effective treatment for all skin types.

The light does not emit any harmful UVA or UVB rays and is not a laser, which means that users require zero downtime or recovery time after a treatment.

Light therapy is medically recognized and is clinically proven, with independent studies of over 40 years of scientific research and support.

The Aduro is for skin rejuvenation; it will not darken or tan the skin.

What is the difference between LED anti-aging Collagen stimulation and taking Collagen supplements?

The Aduro facial masks kick start the body to naturally produce new collagen and is clinically proven and medically recognized.

Collagen supplements may not work as desired because they are incapable of absorbing themselves in the complex matrix of collagen that exists in our body.

Collagen is taken by a lot of people to strengthen bones and tendons, while some users taking them for younger looking skin.

What are the benefits of using the LED facial mask?

The Aduro facial mask is a safe and natural treatment, which has a vast range of benefits to the skin. Benefits include the improvement of skin tone, reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. The results are that aged skin is firmed, rejuvenated and more even – for younger looking, rejuvenated skin.

Why does our skin become aged?

explain_red_1As we get older we lose the amount of Collagen and Hyaluronic acid within the skin. The loss of these components in the skin makes the skin susceptible to damage and wrinkling. By restoring the Collagen and Hyaluronic acid within the skin, the body is able to restore hydration, strength and reduce signs of ageing.

When is light therapy not suitable for my skin?

Light therapy treatments are non-invasive and are intended not to produce any thermal damage or pain.

Some people are sensitive to light and as such need to be aware of any signs that may indicate this.  If you experience any problems or concerns such as uncomfortable heat from the wearing the mask, prolonged redness of the skin, swelling, itching or severe headaches during or after the treatment, these are all indications of sensitivity to light in which case you would want to discontinue the treatment immediately. These side effects rarely occur and usually subside within 24 hours of discontinuing the treatment.

if you do not experience these symptoms when exposed to natural sun light outside, it is unlikely you will experience these symptoms when using light therapy.

Herbs and over the counter medications such as psoralen and St. John’s Wort can also cause sensitivity to light so it is important to be aware of any medications or herbs you are currently taking.
Light therapy treatments may involve risks of complication or injury from both known and unknown causes as with all beauty treatments individual results will vary from person to person.

Are there any medical conditions that mean light therapy is not suitable for me?

Light therapy is not for everyone. Specific medications or conditions can cause a person to develop sensitivity to light. The following questions are intended to help determine if light therapy is the best choice of treatment for you.

The diagnosis of some medical conditions can preclude you from using light therapy.

Have you had/have any of the following medical conditions:

Acute or Cutaneous Porphyria | Lupus Erythematosus | Overactive Thyroid | Photophobia | Exogenous Eczema | Epilepsy and Seizures | Hypomelanism (albinism) | Skin Cancer | Eye disease/retinal abnormalities | Heart trouble/pace maker | Diabetes | Conditions requiring blood thinners.

*If you answered yes to any of the above conditions or you are unsure if you are a suitable candidate for light therapy due to existing skin conditions please consult your doctor before treatment to discuss your specific medical condition and the likelihood of any possible side effects associated with your prescribed medications and light therapy. 

Can I use my light therapy mask while pregnant?

Pregnant and breast feeding mums should always check with their doctor before starting any new skincare regimes. As there are limited studies on the use of LED light therapy during pregnancy and breastfeeding you may wish to wait to use LED light therapy sessions after this special time. If you are currently pregnant or planning to become pregnant in the next eight weeks we recommend consulting with your doctor as you may not be a suitable candidate for light therapy.
