PEACH CLINICS now offers LED Light Therapy. It is useful as an aid to the skin conditions listed below and it is available to our permanent hair removal clients to aid in skin recovery after galvanic electrolysis.Acne Management → Age Management → Skin Tone Correction → Redness Reduction → Dermal Repair →
Unlike other types of light therapy, LEDs do not contain ultraviolet rays. Because of this, they can be very intense but remain safe for regular use and safe for all skin colours and types.
Treatments at PEACH CLINICS last 30 minutes and consist of a hydrogel skin preparation, 20 minutes of LED light therapy, and sunscreen protection post-treatment. You’ll need to return once a week for up to 10 weeks for effective results, then only once every few months to maintain your results.
This is a powerful medical-grade device with over 1,500 LEDs and is registered with the Australian TGA (ARTG No.317123)
The MediLUX can be programmed for blue, green, yellow, red and near-infrared treatment. Each discrete wavelength of light targets different specific skin concerns such as acne congestion, facial redness, pigmentation, uneven tone, neck lines, wrinkles and signs of ageing.
However, the gentle and restorative nature of LED light therapy means that treatments can be performed year round with no pain, no side-effects and no post-treatment downtime.
Dermal Repair (830nm near-infrared)
We recommend this wavelength for skin recovery after galvanic electrolysis
In a study of US Navy SEALs using LED light therapy to help heal wounds, the treatment led to improvement times of more than 40% in recovery from training injuries. The study also found it reduced wound healing times in US Navy submarine crews following work injuries.
See this article Effect of LED irradiation on wound healing for an abstract of this and other studies.
Suggested course of treatmentWhen used for accelerated healing on wounds or recent scars, treatments can be undertaken weekly or twice weekly for one month. Treatment may be ongoing for better results. Intervals for ongoing treatment will vary from person to person.
Age Management (633nm Red)
This encourages cellular renewal and promotes a more youthful complexion
Increased blood circulation should also reduce inflammation post-treatment. Red LED light can potentially reduce signs of ageing such as wrinkles by acting on skin cells called fibroblasts and encouraging them to produce more collagen.
Read this article for results of a clinical trial of red and near-infrared LED light therapy to reduce wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating increasing collagen production: Efficacy of red and near-Infrared treatment.
Suggested course of treatmentWhen used for age management, treatments can be undertaken from 1 to 4 weeks apart. Treatment needs to be ongoing in order to maintain results. Intervals to achieve this will vary from person to person.

Redness reduction (590nm Yellow)
If you have rosacea, you know how pervasive and difficult to treat its symptoms can be. It is a common chronic inflammatory skin disorder that manifests primarily on the face in appoximately 5% of fair-skinned people.
Yellow LED light works to reduce rosacea symptoms such as redness (erythema) by encouraging blood vessels to decrease in size
In this way, the constricted blood vessels become less visible. Yellow light encourages ATP production and fibroblast activity. Those receiving yellow LED light therapy report a softening of skin and a reduction in fine lines.
Suggested course of treatmentTreatments can be undertaken once or twice weekly with visible results after 8 to 10 treatments. As LED light therapy treats the symptoms and not the cause of these conditions, treatment needs to be ongoing in order to maintain results. Intervals to achieve this will vary from person to person.
Skin tone correction (520nm Green)
Green LED light therapy targets melanocytes: the melanin-producing cells in the bottom layer of the skin. It inhibits the production of excess melanin and prevents it from travelling to the skin’s surface. It also breaks up melanin clusters to lessen the extent of existing discolouration.
As a result, dark spots on your skin partially fade and your skin can get a more even skin tone.
Suggested course of treatmentGreen LED light therapy can be undertaken weekly. 6 to 12 consecutive treatments are recommended with less frequent sessions to maintain results.
Acne management (415nm Blue)
It should reduce sebaceous activity with the aim of fewer acne breakouts
Blue LED light works to clear gland congestion and kill the acne-causing bacteria, propionibacterium acnes, by targeting the metabolic products of the bacteria producing an oxygen-free radical that, in turn, kills the bacteria.
Read this article for results of a clinical trial of blue LED light therapy: Clinical efficacy of blue light therapy for facial acne.
Suggested course of treatmentFor the treatment of acne, clinical trials have shown that treatment sessions twice weekly for 8 weeks are recommended.
This should be followed by one session per week for 4 weeks to assist in reducing bacteria counts and the inflammation associated with acne.
