Red Light Therapy

Is treatment suitable for anyone?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
The redlight treatment is harmless and is suitable for all skin types. People with low blood pressure or who are pregnant, suffer from epilepsy or increased light sensitivity, or are on medication that causes increased light sensitivity (e.g. antibiotics or St. John’s Wort) should, however, refrain from the treatment. For the first treatment a lower dose is recommended, to test for any adverse reaction. 
The Vibra-shape training should not be carried out immediately after an operation or if recently wounded, if you have heart/hip and bone problems, during pregnancy, with bone implants, acute thrombosis, gallstones or kidney stones, or during an acute illnesses or inflammation. If you suffer from diabetes, strong migraines, have a tumour or skin cancer or in other case where there is doubt, please consult your doctor.
How long is each treatment?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Each Beauty Angel treatment is between 10–12 minutes.  We recommend a break of 48 hours between treatments, and no more than 3 sessions per week.
Do I need eye protection?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Because of the bright light, SunScape does recommend some type of eye protection.  Although sunglasses would do the trick, we also offer Wink-ease for Red Light Therapy which is recommended.
What makes skin rejuvenation using Beauty Angel lamps different from other treatments?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
While many cosmetic treatments only enhance the surface of the skin, thanks to the use of red light with Beauty Angel the skin tissue is firmed and regenerated from the inside.

The Beauty Angel light reduces the causes of skin aging in a particularly gentle way. The treatment is very agreeable and there is no risk of inflammation or erythema (rashes).

As with many other things at SunScape, it just works better.
What is Vibra Shape?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
The complement to the light treatment using Vibra Shape provides a whole body approach to beauty and fitness.

This is made possible by the vibration plate built into the support frame. This high-quality training equipment was used in several studies by the European Space Agency and today is used mainly in physiotreatment. A natural human walk is simulated using patented technology, which means that Vibra Shape, unlike other training equipment, is a 100% physiological training method.

With alternating side movements it trains all of the muscles from the legs up into the abdomen and back. Your head can be kept still during this. At the same time calories are consumed and by tautening the connective tissue cellulite can be effectively prevented. At the same time, improved circulation and micro-circulation reinforce the results of photo bio stimulation. 

By the way: Combining training with collagen generation is a method for protecting joints that is highly recommended, even for athletes.

SunScape highly recommends using Vibra Shape with your Red Light Therapy treatment and there is a completely free add-on.
Is it recommended to combine this with other cosmetic applications?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
Yes.

While normal cosmetic treatments mainly enhance the surface of the skin, photo bio stimulation firms and regenerates the skin tissue from the inside. As the treatment also helps the absorption of cosmetics into the skin, it can make cosmetic products work particularly effectively.

This means that by combining treatments you can achieve particularly impressive results. We recommend the Beauty Angel skincare line, which was developed specially to work with redlight treatment. Ask your SunScape associate for advice.
Can normal sun cosmetics be used together with Beauty Angel, and what about day creams or body lotions? Do they reduce its effect?
Jan 19, 2012 08:34PM PST
For optimum effect you should remove make-up and cosmetics before exposure to the red light (e.g. via a peeling).

Unknown cosmetics might contain ingredients which could trigger light sensitive reactions. Normal sun cosmetics should not be used. There are special skin-care products for red light treatments, which complement and intensify its action.

The use of normal day cream/body lotion after a red light treatment is not necessary, but will not have any negative effect on the results.

Some possible negative effects of ingredients (e.g. silicon oils: block the pores and prevent the skin breathing - or parabens: act like hormones and change the skin reactions) may cancel out the effects of the red light treatment.

Please inquire with your SunScape associate for products to maximize the effects of your Beauty Angel sessions.
What do you mean by photo bio stimulation?
Jan 19, 2012 08:36PM PST
Photo bio stimulation means stimulating the body´s own process of rejuvenation by light. With Beauty Angel, the skin cells (fibroblasts) are very gently stimulated by light in special active spectrums to produce more collagen, elastin and hyaluron.

It's what we like to think of SunScape's fountain of youth.
What do you mean by energizing light technology?
Jan 19, 2012 08:38PM PST
Many different studies have proven that the combination of visible light and near-infrared give particularly good results. The effective active spectrums of Energizing Light Technology are created by the combination of newly developed high-pressure bulbs with specially coated filter glasses and unique glass reflectors. The combination optimizes the results of photo bio stimulation and creates a new light experience.

At SunScape, this is what we call scientific mumbo jumbo that only our smartest clients will understand.  If you get it, please explain it to us :)
How are recent tattoos, piercings, liposuctions or peeling affected?
Jan 19, 2012 08:46PM PST
Red light treatment is also used medically to heal wounds. But in order to completely eliminate any risk of infection, if you have open wounds, new or inflamed tattoos, piercings etc. you should wait until they have fully healed.

Unlike with tanning beds, piercings should not be removed to avoid any physical irritation of the pierced opening which might occur e.g. with newly healed piercings (reactivation).

A gentle peeling before the red light treatment provides the perfect complement, as it improves penetration into the skin.
