Light treat­ments

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BEAUTY -

Light treat­ments (in­clud­ing Red and LED light) are good for im­prov­ing tex­ture and tone in the skin, and re­duc­ing age spots and pig­men­ta­tion, spi­der veins, acne and rosacea. While the thought of ly­ing un­der a light for 20 or 30 min­utes might seem risky, Dr Joanna Ro­manowska from Clinic 42 en­sures us it is safe. “Un­like a sunbed that uses dam­ag­ing ul­tra-vi­o­let rays, this pro­ce­dure uses in­frared, which is not dam­ag­ing – rather, it seems to draw heal­ing cells to the area of con­cern and en­cour­ages the skin to make new col­la­gen and new elastin,” ex­plains Joanna. The process is pain-free – it might even feel as if it’s not do­ing any­thing at all as you lie there with three pan­els that cover your face, but you should see dra­matic re­sults in the qual­ity and tex­ture of your skin after a course of about nine to 10 treat­ments.
