FAQ

THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND IT

LED photomodulation uses non-thermal, non-invasive cold LED (light-emitting diode) lights to stimulate cell activity.

LED photomodulation is based on cold light therapy, making it a gentle form of technology that:
– is non-invasive
– is non-thermal
– is painless
– does not emit UV rays
– has no side effects
It has been used by dermatologists and aesthetic medicine practitioners for years.

LED-based photomodulation has been tested at a number of universities and medical laboratories, including at NASA. We estimate that around 2,000 reports and documents have been published on this technology and its efficacy.

No, the cold light technology it is based on doesn’t hurt during the treatment, nor afterwards.

Devices in the BIOLUX HOME CARE range work with three different wavelengths (in other words, three different LED colours) which essentially act on the dermis at specific depths to activate and boost the cells.
The AGELIGHT device incorporates yellow, red and near infrared lights. The yellow light stimulates the production of collagen, reducing collagenases (enzymes that break down collagen), and brightening the complexion.
The red light stimulates the production of collagen, diminishing red blotchiness as it facilitates oxygenation of the skin.
The near infrared light stimulates fibroblasts which triggers cell repair mechanisms.
The SPOTLIGHT device incorporates blue, red and yellow lights.
Owing to its bactericidal properties, the blue light acts on the bacteria involved in acne.
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, the red light soothes red blotchiness and regulates the excess production of sebum.
The yellow light stimulates cell regeneration for an improved skin texture and reduces scarring.
The HAIRLIGHT device incorporates yellow, blue and red lights.
The yellow light stimulates the cells on the scalp, supplying them with energy.
The red light regulates the production of sebum responsible for imbalances such as oily scalp conditions and acts on the blood vessels to optimise irrigation of the hair follicles.
The blue light alleviates potential problems relating to scalp irritation.

We strongly recommended removing make-up and cleansing and drying the treatment area before using BIOLUX on the skin.
Applying a cosmetic product before the session is discouraged as it can reduce the light’s effectiveness or cause side effects. However, you can use cosmetic products on the treated area after the session to enhance results. You can also wear make-up as normal after a BIOLUX treatment.

Sun exposure after BIOLUXTM photomodulation is not specifically discouraged.
However, patients should still take the normal precautions related to sun exposure.

Protective glasses are recommended so that the patient is not bothered by the light. We strongly recommend they be worn at each session.

Yes, its compact, ergonomic design allows you to take it with you wherever you go. What’s more, it comes with an adaptor cable, for ease of use while travelling. An elegant, practical protective pouch also makes it easier to transport.

BIOLUX HOME CARE devices have been tested and approved in order to obtain the various certifications and approvals (including CE medical approval). They present no risk related to blue light and are guaranteed to be UV free: we consider the health of your skin as one of our priorities.
BIOLUX HOME CARE devices were developed through medical research, they have been designed to hold 96 high-performance LED lights to ensure delivery of the optimal dose of energy during each treatment. The BIOLUX HOME CARE range also offers the advantage of being shaped like a pebble that sits easily in the palm of your hand, so you can easily take it with you when you travel.

Once you’ve opened the device, use the touchscreen to select the desired treatment.
Your face is divided into three areas:
Area 1 – Area 2 – Area 3
Put on the glasses, and then start the programme by pressing on the green square button at the top left hand side.
Place the device over Area 1, using the edge of the case as a guide on the top or bottom of the face, so as to ensure the LEDs are positioned directly over the area, 10cm away. Each time you hear a beep, change area.

For treatments performed 1cm away, place the device 1cm from the area to be treated – the equivalent of one finger’s width between the device and the skin.

AGELIGHT

Each person responds to AGELIGHT treatments differently, some respond quicker than others if we take certain factors such as age and lifestyle choices into account (smoking, drinking).
By using the Anti-dull complexion treatment every day, you should have a more radiant complexion from day 7 onwards.
Within 6 to 8 weeks of using the Anti-dull complexion treatment in combination with the Anti-ageing treatment, the texture of the skin is improved, hydrated, plumped, smoothed and refined. We suggest that you take a photo before starting treatment so that you can see the changes over the following few weeks.

Yes, you can use your own cosmetic products. We strongly recommended removing make-up and cleansing and drying the treatment area before using Biolux on the skin.
You can also use your own creams after the session to enhance the results.

Yes, AGELIGHT delivers treatments that are just as effective when used in combination with other skin rejuvenation techniques. However, we do advise you to verify there are no phototoxicity risks with injected products before use.

AGELIGHT is used in the following way:
Use the Anti-dull complexion treatment every day and once a week thereafter, and when you have a bit more time, do the Anti-ageing treatment. If you experience skin redness or a warming sensation on the skin, use the Anti-redness treatment that has an immediately calming effect. This new beauty ritual brings out the natural beauty of your skin, making it radiant and glowing with health; lines are plumped and smoothed, and the skin structure is strengthened.
We recommend that you take a two-week break from doing the treatments every three months so as not to overwork the cells.

AGELIGHT offers three treatments to address specific skin problems:
– Anti-dull complexion programme
– Anti-redness programme
– Anti-ageing programme to target lines and wrinkles.
We strongly recommend that you do not use two different treatments on the same area. For example, if you are doing an Anti-ageing treatment, do not also do the Anti-dull complexion treatment; if you are doing the Anti-redness treatment, do not use other treatments on the same day.
We recommend that you take a two-week break from doing the treatments every three months so as not to overwork the cells.

The Anti-dull complexion programme only takes three minutes in total: the face is divided into three different areas, and the treatment lasts for 45 seconds per area.
The Anti-ageing treatment offers a comprehensive 18-minute treatment for the face in addition to a 45-second hydration stage, for a total treatment duration of approximately 20 minutes.
The Anti-redness treatment offers a 9-minute treatment for the face in addition to a 45-second hydration stage per area for an optimal treatment.

After the first three months, we recommend that you take a two-week break. Thereafter, you can resume treatments normally, ensuring you take this two-week break every three months. If the results are satisfactory, you may want to “lighten” your routine. We recommend that you do the Anti-dull complexion treatment as an additional radiance boost, while you continue to do the Anti-ageing treatment once a week. These maintenance treatments enable you to maintain firm, radiant skin owing to ongoing cell stimulation.

HAIRLIGHT

Each person responds to HAIRLIGHT treatments differently, some quicker than others if we take certain factors such as age and lifestyle choices into account (smoking, drinking). That said, most users should see initial results after 5 to 8 weeks. We suggest that you take a photo before starting treatment so that you can see the changes over the following few weeks.

HAIRLIGHT offers four treatments:
HAIRLIGHT 1 – Hyperseborrhea: for greasy hair.
HAIRLIGHT 2 – Anti-infection / Anti-inflammation: as an additional treatment to other hair treatments.
HAIRLIGHT 3 – Bio-regeneration: to boost cell metabolism.
HAIRLIGHT 4 – Anti-hair loss: to slow down hair loss.

Yes, you can use HAIRLIGHT just before or after washing your hair. You can also use it on wet hair as the scalp itself is targeted in HAIRLIGHT treatments.

We recommend that you use HAIRLIGHT 3 Bio-regeneration (once a day for one month), to stimulate the hair root and boost cell metabolism. Your hair is regenerated, strengthened and it looks healthy.

HAIRLIGHT is the optimal hair loss treatment.
Firstly, if excess sebum is present (greasy hair types), we recommend that you treat this issue using the Hairlight 1 – Hyperseborrhea treatment for one to two months.
Secondly, the cell metabolism of the root needs to be stimulated, by doing a Hairlight 3 – Bio-regeneration treatment for one month. Next, you need to support nutritional supply demands to the root of the hair by improving blood circulation, as poor vascularisation of the hair bulb leads to an insufficient supply of elements essential for hair growth. This can be done by using the Hairlight 4 – Anti-hair loss treatment for 5 weeks.
At the end of this combination treatment, hair regrowth with stronger hair is triggered. We advise you to continue to follow the hair loss programme once a week to maintain results and slow down or even stop hair loss.

Yes, you can use the Hairlight 1 – Hyperseborrhea treatment for 1 to 2 months every second day. This treatment regulates the sebaceous glands (responsible for scalp conditions).

Yes, HAIRLIGHT offers a specific post-implant treatment: HAIRLIGHT 2 – Anti-infection / Anti-inflammation for 2 weeks. When this treatment is used after medical intervention, it reduces the production of inflammation factors, helping to avoid potential bacterial contamination.
After this treatment: HAIRLIGHT 3 Bio-regeneration for 1 month followed by Hairlight 4 – Anti-hair loss for 5 weeks for optimal results.

HAIRLIGHT can be used on long and short hair as it acts on the hair root. On long hair, we recommended using a headband to pull the hair away from the scalp, allowing for more effective treatment action on the capillary roots.

Once you’ve opened the device, use the touchscreen to select the desired treatment.
Put on the glasses, start the programme by pressing on the green square button at the top left hand side.
Place the device over the area to be treated, depending on the selected treatment:
This can either be placed 10cm away, using the edge of the case as a guide in order to ensure that the LEDs are placed directly over the area to be treated.
For treatments performed 1cm away, place the device 1cm from the area to be treated – the equivalent of one finger’s width between the device and the scalp.
Repeat the process on the different areas to be treated.
We recommend that you do not do more than one treatment in the same area. This can reduce the effectiveness of the photomodulation treatment.

SPOTLIGHT

Each person responds to SPOTLIGHT treatments differently, some quicker than others if we take certain factors such as age and lifestyle choices into account (smoking, drinking). That said, most users should see initial results after 6 to 8 weeks. We suggest that you take a photo before starting treatment so that you can see the changes over the following few weeks.

You can use special anti-acne creams after doing the SPOTLIGHT treatment to enhance results. Please note, we advise you not to use any creams BEFORE doing SPOTLIGHT treatments as this could reduce the efficacy of the action of the light, or cause side effects.

Except on professional medical advice, we do not recommend SPOTLIGHT treatments for severe acne. Spotlight treatments are designed for minor to moderate acne conditions.

Yes, SPOTLIGHT treatments are based on LED photomodulation, a mild technology that does not harm the skin.
Skin imperfections and breakouts disappear, and skin sebum is regulated without drying out the skin as the skin’s hydration level is maintained.

Yes, sun exposure after a SPOTLIGHT photomodulation treatment is not specifically discouraged.
However, you should still take the normal precautions related to sun exposure, in order to protect your skin.

SPOTLIGHT incorporates blue, red and yellow lights.
Owing to its bactericidal properties, the blue light acts on the bacteria involved in acne (porphyrins released by the acne), limiting their proliferation.
Owing to its anti-inflammatory properties, the red light soothes red blotchiness and regulates the production of excess sebum.
The yellow light stimulates cell regeneration for improved skin texture and reduces scars.

SPOTLIGHT offers three treatments: Acne, Acne Seborrhoea and an after-treatment: Regeneration.
The Acne treatment treats, soothes and promotes the elimination of acne-type pimples.
The Acne Seborrhoea treatment reduces the production of excess sebum, alleviates inflamed skin lesions and treats blackhead-type pimples, or non-infectious blackheads.
The Regeneration treatment is used after a three-month course of Acne or Acne Seborrhoea treatments, it helps to regain smooth skin, reduce scars and maintain the radiance of the complexion.

As is the case for the Acne treatment, the Acne Seborrhoea treatment needs to be continued for at least three months; we recommend that you adhere to this treatment period to achieve optimal results. By stopping the treatment before the end of the programme, the chances of it being successful are greatly reduced. We recommend that you start doing your Acne Seborrhoea treatments again for a full three months, followed by the Regeneration treatment.

We recommend that you continue your Acne or Acne Seborrhoea treatments for three months, and then to do the Regeneration treatment for three months. After this, you should take a two-week break so as not to overwork the cells. Thereafter you can start another treatment as normal.

Our devices are tested and have received CE Medical approval. They present no risks related to blue light.
In addition, our glasses are adapted to filter blue light for complete safety.
