|Medik8 Light Amplifier PDT Serum\n|
Professional Strength PDT Intensification Serum for Blue and Red Light (30ml)
Light Amplifier is a lightweight photosensitising serum which greatly enhances the effectiveness of photodynamic therapy (PDT), for the management of acne and various other skin conditions. Light Amplifier contains levulinic acid and bergamot, together with penetration enhancers, and is specifically designed to directly target acne and photodamage.
Lightweight serum containing levulinic acid and bergamot, selected for their ability to heighten the skins sensitivity to applied light, for the treatment of a broad range of skin concerns. Light Amplifier used in conjunction with photodynamic therapy (PDT) produces greatly enhanced results compared to the light alone. Proven to be effective in the management of acne, Light Amplifier generates an excess of oxygen which works to destroy bacteria; reducing the frequency and severity of outbreaks. The specially chosen ingredients are also attracted to damaged cells and are activated when exposed to specific wavelengths of light, yielding excellent results for the improvement of photodamaged skin.
When applied prior to PDT, Light Amplifier inactivates the bacteria within the sebaceous glands
Long-term, sebum excretion is significantly lowered
Inflammation is decreased, reducing the redness and irritation commonly experienced with acne
The risk of acne-induced scarring is minimised
Light Amplifier is absorbed into damaged cells before exposure to the PDT. When collected in the cells
Light Amplifier becomes photosensitive, exposure to the light then leads to destruction of these cells while leaving healthy skin cells intact
A penetration enhancer is utilised to deliver active ingredients directly into the sebaceous gland, ensuring the depth and penetration is even and the treatment is as targeted or uniform as required
Light Amplifier has been formulated for direct application to the face, neck, décolleté and back.
Only use Light Amplifier 2-3 times per week. Not designed for daily use.
In the evening, after cleansing and prior to exposure to the PDT lamp, apply up to 10 drops directly to the skin and blend evenly across the required treatment area. Avoid eyebrows, hairline and areas of facial hair in men.
Alternatively, place a drop onto your finger and massage into the skin, repeating until the desired skin area is covered. Carefully wash your hands after application. Please see product leaflet for full directions.
