Collagenic light

How does Dr. Müller Collagenic light work

Huidtype_ultrasun_collageniclight

Collagen is human protein made by fibroblast cells in the dermis layer of the skin. It is responsible for the optical tightness, elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Research proves that during the course of the aging process the skin loses its ability to produce collagen. As a consequence lines and fine wrinkles appear.

The Dr. Müller Collagenic Light lamps emit red light at a wavelength of 633 nanometers. This helps the skin to increase its production of collagen and elastin. The result is a firm skin with reduced lines, a younger appearance and healthier look.

Benefits of Dr.Müller Collagenic Light

Renewal of collagen and elastin fibres

Collagenic light reaches the deepest layer of the skin, the dermis layer, and this is the place where the production of the collagen protein takes place. Here the production of the collagen protein is activated. More collagen and elastin protein is made, which will give your skin a boost in its structural support.

Diminishes lines and fine wrinkles and leads to visible anti-aging

The renewal of the collagen and elastin cell production increases the support of your skin tissue, causing fine lines in the skin to disappear and wrinkles to become less visible.

Makes your skin soft and tight

Research reports that your skin feels softer after taking sessions with collagen light. In the assessment of the overall tone, softness, smoothness, clarity and firmness of the skin in the treatment area, improvements in all these elements was reported.

Oxygenation and detoxification of the skin

Light at 633 nanometres increases the transfer of energy between your skin’s light absorbing molecules. The activated molecules cause your skin to react by increasing the oxygenation and detoxification of your skin.

Reduces deposits of cellulite

Red light at 633 nanometres helps decreasing skin conditions like cellulite or adiposes edematosa. The fat cells within the connective tissue that cause cellulite become less when taking sessions of collagen light.

Improvement of the skin’s moisture retention, suppleness and firmness

Due to an increase in collagen and elastin fibres, your skin becomes more firm. Your skin’s moisture retention will increase.

Increases the body’s natural skin renewal process

Collagenic light helps to decrease age spots, sunspots and other discoloration of the skin. It triggers the body’s natural skin renewal process. As collagen production is activated, skin cell renewal is activated as well causing discoloration to disappear.

Increases wound healing

Collagenic light increases the rate of cellular regeneration. Injuries and injured skin tissue therefore recovers faster when being treated with red light at 633 nanometres.

Stimulates blood circulation

Collagenic light increases oxygenation and detoxification in our skin, mainly due to the energy that will be transferred through our skin cells. Research has proven that this also leads to better blood circulation. By relaxing the blood vessels in the treated areas, allowing the blood to flow more easily.

Reduction of pore size

Research has proven that a significant number of people have noticed a reduction of pore size after being exposed to collagen light. Especially the pores in the facial area decreased in size.

Feel good due to the release of Serotonin

Due to the exposure of bright light, your body boosts the production of the hormone Serotonin. Also called the Happy Hormone. We tend to feel happier and more energetic during summer days when we are outside enjoying the bright light.

Helps with weight loss

Serotonin suppresses your appetite. Research has proven that people with obesity that have been given increased levels of Serotonin during a research period of 24 weeks, decreased their food intake and lost weight.

Relieves pain

The warmth of the Collagenic lamps make muscles more flexible and are an aid for myalgia. It eases stiffness, and works as a pain reliever in case of rheumatism, arthritis and muscular pain.
