At Lumina We Take Many Different Approaches to Your Acne Concerns

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs at any age.  Acne can be pimples, black heads or white heads.

Acne is formed when excess oils from the 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, we could in fact be contaminating the skin even further by spreading bacteria to uninfected areas.

One of our approaches to healing acne is ELR – using specifically blue light. These treatments are generally given once a week for 4 to 8 week.  Treatments are based on the severity of the acne and how well the client responds to the treatments.

Different coloured light can be used depending on the condition of the client’s 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 and is very gentle to the infected and surrounding skin.  There are no negative side-effects from this treatment.

Healing Scars

Scars can be formed from acne, surgery, burns or trauma to the skin.  In most cases 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. The skin around the injured tissue becomes looser and more subtle.

The number is treatments required will vary depending on the type of scar and the amount of scar tissue below the scar.
