acneAcne is a common skin condition that occurs at any age.  Acne can be any or all of these skin conditions pimples, black heads white heads.  Acne is form when excess oils from our sebaceous glands become trapped within the skin’s pores or follicles and cannot reach the surface of the skin.  When oil is trapped, it can form a type of bacteria and this bacteria inflames the skin, resulting in different types of acne breakouts.  Sometimes when we think we are doing the right thing by exfoliating our skin and fact we could be contaminating the skin even further spreading bacteria to uninfected areas.

At Lumina we take many different approaches to your acne concerns.   One of our approaches is ELR using specifically blue light. These treatments are generally given once a week for four to eight week.  And are based on the severity of the acne and how well the client is responding to the treatments.  Different coloured light can be used depending on the condition of the clients skin.   After the ELR treatment there is a mask applied to the skin to help nourish and further remove toxins from the skin.

The combination of micro-current and light therapy is soothing and nourishing as well as very gentle to the infected and surrounding skin.  There are no negative side affects from the treatment.

Scars can be formed from acne, surgery, burns or trauma to the skin.  In most casts scars have not just a surface scar but often the tissue under the scar is affected as well.

At Lumina we use ELR to help improve the visible signs of the scar and improve the tissue below the scar by helping it to relax and let go so the skin all around the injured tissue is loser and more supple.  The number is treatments required will vary depending on the type of scar a client has to the amount of scar tissue below the scar.

ELR is a gentle approach to scar therapy and help to nourish the scar as well as the tissue surrounding the scar.   Both blue and red light are used as well as a mask to help nourish the area further for me healing to occur.
