Lumixa

The Lumixa treatment at Australian Laser and Skin offers a cutting-edge solution for addressing signs of aging and inflammation through innovative Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE) technology.  The Lumixa treatment is a non-invasive treatment which involves the application of a gel which is stimulated by the blue light of an LED Light Therapy machines to achieve some of the best results available on the market for boosting collagen and elastin, as well as reducing redness and inflammation.   There are two different types of Lumixa:

1. Lumixa Skin Normaliser
Studies have demonstrated that Lumixa Skin Normaliser is capable of reducing inflammation markers on human fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes by up to 80%.

2. Lumixa Collagen Booster
Studies have demonstrated that Lumixa Collagen Booster is capable of increasing collagen production in human fibroblasts by up to 700% after 72 hours.

The Lumixa treatment is primarily aimed at combating “inflammageing” and intrinsic signs of aging. Inflammageing refers to a continuous, low-level and asymptomatic inflammatory process associated with ageing.

Such an inflammatory response could become chronic over time and gradually cause damage to skin tissues including:

  • Inhibition of adaptation and repair mechanisms;
  • Dehydration;
  • Skin matrix weakening;
  • Collagen and elastin degradation;
  • Skin barrier impairment; and
  • Solar lentigo.

Scientific studies show that, as soon as we become adults, the overall percentage of collagen decreases by about 1% per year. Degradation of collagen causes wrinkles and skin aging.

These treatments help in both prevention and correction of skin issues caused by aging.
There are two types of Lumixa treatments available at Australian Laser & Skin - Lumixa Skin Normaliser and Lumixa Collagen Booster. These gels likely target different aspects of skin health and rejuvenation.

How does Lumixa treatments work?

Lumixa utilises Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE) technology and is a Fluorejuvenation treatment capable of stimulating biological processes and the skin’s own regeneration mechanisms through a process called “photobiomodulation”. This technology involves the activation of Lumixa gels with a blue LED light within the wavelength range of 415nm to 465nm. Upon activation, the gel undergoes photoconversion, producing a spectrum of Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE).

Lumixa is a “skin gym” treatment which reinforces natural defence mechanisms. It has positive effects on redness control, collagen production and natural glow enhancement.

The standard protocol for Lumixa treatment involves one session per week for five weeks. However, depending on the severity of the condition being treated, some patients may require additional sessions.

Benefits of Lumixa

The Lumixa treatment offers a range of benefits aimed at improving skin health and appearance through its innovative approach, these include:

Fluorejuvenation: Lumixa stimulates the regeneration mechanisms of the skin, promoting rejuvenation from within. This process helps to renew skin cells, leading to a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

Skin Gym: By reinforcing the skin's natural defence mechanisms, Lumixa helps to fortify the skin against environmental aggressors and oxidative stress. This contributes to overall skin health and resilience.

Natural Glow Enhancement: Lumixa treatment enhances the natural radiance of the skin, leaving it looking brighter, more luminous, and healthier.

Anti-Redness Effect: Lumixa reduces redness and inflammation, providing a soothing effect on the skin. This makes it particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive or reactive skin.

Stimulation of Collagen Production: Lumixa treatment stimulates the production of collagen, a vital protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. Increased collagen production can help minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Advantages of Lumixa treatment include:

Non-Destructive: Lumixa treatment is gentle on the skin and does not cause damage or trauma, making it suitable for various skin types, including sensitive skin.

Non-Systemic: Lumixa treatment works locally on the skin without affecting other systems or organs in the body, ensuring a targeted approach to skin rejuvenation.

Non-Photosensitising, Can be Used Even in Summer: Lumixa treatment does not increase the skin's sensitivity to sunlight, making it safe for use throughout the year, including during the summer months.

Painless: Lumixa treatment is typically painless and comfortable for the patient, with minimal discomfort experienced during or after the procedure.

Little to No Downtime: There is minimal downtime associated with Lumixa treatment, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.

Quick Treatments: Lumixa treatments are conducted quickly by trained in-clinic staff or therapists, making them convenient for individuals with busy schedules.

Can be Combined with Other Treatments: Lumixa treatment can be combined with other cosmetic procedures or skincare treatments to enhance results further, offering versatility in addressing various skin concerns.

The Lumixa treatment offers a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation, providing both immediate and long-term benefits with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the science behind FLE technology? How does it greatly differ from LED treatments?

Lumixa offers treatments which utilise innovative technology called Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). FLE works through photobiomodulation. While LED is a continuous type of light, FLE is a hyperpulsed light which facilitates superior cellular interaction. LED light uses the properties of one single colour (wavelength) at a time. FLE covers a very wide spectrum of wavelengths at the same time. Blue from the LED light and green, yellow and red from the FLE generated. FLE interacts with different receptors in the epidermis and dermis.

What is Inflammageing?

The term "Inflammageing" refers to a continuous, low-level and asymptomatic inflammatory process associated with ageing. This inflammatory response can gradually cause damage to skin tissues through dehydration, skin matrix weakening, collagen and elastin degradation, skin barrier impairment and solar lentigo.

What is Chronoageing?

Chronoageing is intrinsic ageing. It is responsible for loss of volume, alteration of the skin texture and dry skin.

What does Lumixa Skin Normaliser contain?

The formulation contains Fluorophyll N which is a patented fluorophore. It has a specific energy profile that makes it effective on Inflammageing and its symptoms. Fluorophyll N has demonstrated its effectiveness on modulating skin reactivity and stress, preventing/combating inflammation and generates a revitalising and energising effect.

What results can I expect from Lumixa Skin Normaliser?

Studies have demonstrated that Lumixa Skin Normaliser is capable of reducing inflammation markers on human fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes by up to 80%.

What does Lumixa Collagen Booster contain?

The formulation contains Fluocumin C, a patented fluorophore with a specific energy profile that makes it effective on chronoageing. Fluocumin C stimulates fibroblasts which leads to a clear increase of collagen production and complete skin matrix reactivation.

What results can I expect from Lumixa Collagen Booster?

Studies have demonstrated that Lumixa Collagen Booster is capable of increasing collagen production in human fibroblasts by up to 700% after 72 hours.

What happens during the treatment session? What should I expect during the treatment?
  • A gel containing a fluorophore with a specific energy profile is applied to the skin.
  • The gel is then activated with a blue LED Light with wavelengths between 415nm and 465 nm.
  • Once activated, the gel performs a photoconversion which produces a spectrum of Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE).
Is Lumixa painful? Is it safe?

Lumixa is a safe, non-destructive and painless treatment. The gel remains on the skin surface and is not systemically absorbed. Lumixa is non-photosensitising so the treatment can be used in summer.

Will I be able to go about my day immediately after a session? What is the downtime, if any?

With no downtime, Lumixa allows you to go back to your daily life straight after the session. Make-up can also be applied to the skin immediately afterwards.

When will I start to see results?

Results vary depending on the treatment protocol and skin condition. Some patients see an improvement on redness after just one single session. In most cases, major improvements are noticeable during the last couple of weeks of a 5 week, standard treatment protocol. Since Lumixa stimulates the skin’s biological processes, it continues to improve the skin in the weeks following the end of the treatment protocol.

What are Lumixa side effects and contraindications?

There are very few side effects with Lumixa. In sensitive skin, mild erythema may be observed due to the heat. Darker Fitzpatrick Skin Types may experience a mild bronzing/darkening of the skin which dissipates after the treatment course.

Contraindications are not linked to Lumixa per se but to the device being used to activate it. However, we recommend not to use retinol (or vitamin A) during the treatment since it can produce major sensitivities.

Efficacy and safety of Lumixa has not been tested on pregnant or breast-feeding women. Consult a doctor if considering using Lumixa if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant during the treatment or are breast-feeding.

Can Lumixa help me enhance other treatment results?

It can be used for an anti-inflammatory effect (Lumixa Skin Normaliser) or a cellular reactivation effect (Lumixa Collagen Booster) before and after invasive procedures. Lumixa treatments may be used before and 2 weeks after the procedure.

What aftercare products should we recommend?

Since Lumixa is not systemically absorbed, non-photosensitising with no serious side effects, it can be combined with most homecare products. The Therapist will recommend a homecare regime for the patient’s skin type and desired outcome. We do recommend not to use retinol (or vitamin A) during the treatment since it can produce major sensitivities.
