The Science

As a result of ageing, skin disorders or trauma, healthy skin cells are compromised and unable to renew themselves normally.

During the treatment, you’ll simply lie underneath a light screen while wavelengths Red, Blue and Near-Infrared of visible light penetrate your skin at different depths and cause cell reactions in your skin.  The skin tissues use the light as a source of energy to fuel the repair and rejuvenation of damaged cells, reduce inflammation, healing wounds, scatter melanocyte clusters or, in acne skin types kill bacteria. The energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, boosts circulation, accelerates tissue repair is also particularly calming, you skin will feel rejuvenated and refreshed.

Kernel LED Light Therapy harnesses the properties of 3 light wavelengths, via Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, Blue, Red, and Near Infrared wavelengths which work on the 3 different layers of the skin which work on layers of the skin to energise cell function.  The energy delivered is used to improve cell performance and has a many therapeutic benefits on many skin conditions including;

  • Active acne
  • Rosacea
  • Dermatitis conditions
  • Inflammation
  • Wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Relieving pain
  • Wound and scar healing

What types of light are there and what do they do?

Blue Light

Blue light at 415nm penetrates through the epidermis destroys the bacteria (P. Acnes) which causes spots and helps in the prevention of breakouts. It also helps to balance sebum production and offers a UV-free alternative for the treatment of eczema and psoriasis to improve skin clarity.

Blue light therapy helps:

  • Helps acne prone skin
  • Prevents breakouts
  • Balances oil production
  • UV Free alternative for eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis

Red Light

Rejuvenating Red light at 633nm reaches the dermal layer, increases natural hydration levels, accelerates cell renewal and repair, reduced redness and inflammation boosting collagen and elastin synthesis, shrinks the appearance of pores, improves circulation, accelerates skin repair as is a medically-approved treatment for rosacea.

Red light therapy is clinically proven to increase the body’s natural form of cellular energy (ATP) which in turn “kick starts” cells to regenerate faster. Red light is potently absorbed by fibroblasts increasing collagen and elastin synthesis and boosting natural hydration levels. It also improves blood flow for increased tissue oxygenation and the lymphatic systems to eliminate toxins. Red light offers immediate visible results; skin feels hydrated and plump and radiance is restored.

Red Light Therapy to helps:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increases natural hydration
  • Shrinks enlarged pores
  • Restores radiance

Infrared Light

Regenerating Near-infrared light 830nm is the most deeply absorbed wavelength, it triggers the skins anti-inflammatory processes to accelerate repair and reduce irritation and redness for compromised, environmentally damaged and sensitive skin conditions. Near Infrared light builds strength and integrity. It is also clinically effective in the treatment of age spots and hyperpigmentation and stimulate cellular repair mechanisms essential in the wound healing process, also aid in pain management and relief.

Infra Red Light Therapy to helps:

  • Smooths lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces pigmentation
  • Scar reduction and prevention
  • Relieves pain and inflammation
  • Minimise Rosacea & Cystic Acne
  • Relieves redness and irritation
