Red Light Collagen Therapy AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Red light collagen therapy is a revolutionary procedure that has streamlined the concentrated light treatment process. In a single, fast treatment, it can address problematic skin concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, folds, pigmentation, and textural worries. Waves of concentrated light enter the skin to erase these conditions without causing physical damage to the skin.

Red light collagen therapy continues to grow in popularity as more patients realize the extent of the results it can provide even with modest, conservative treatment.

Perfectio X Device

At Dermacare, we use the FDA-approved Perfectio X device to deliver red light collagen therapy because of how safe, reliable and effective it provides our patients with results. This device uses both red and NASA infrared light technology (the same light used to grow plants in space).

The device includes a waterproof glass head that ensures optimal light exposure is being delivered to your skin. It can efficiently heat up to 107 degrees Fahrenheit, the perfect temperature to stimulate blood circulation and protein production without causing damage.

Here are some stats from a study that was performed on Perfectio X:

  1. 100% of participants agreed that they have younger and healthier-looking skin after treatment.
  2. 100% of participants agreed that they would continue to include the Perfectio X treatment in their skincare routine.
  3. 100% of participants agreed that they would recommend Perfectio X to others.
  4. 98% of participants agreed that they noticed a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.
  5. 98% of participants agreed that their skin felt smoother and more elastic.
  6. 97% of participants agreed that they would choose Perfectio X over other similar products.
  7. 95% of participants agreed that they felt more confident with their skin after treatment.
  8. 92% of participants agreed that their skin looked firmer and more toned.

Red Light Collagen Therapy Candidates

Red light collagen therapy can treat a host of different conditions, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Poor skin texture
  • Age spots
  • Sunspots
  • Dark spots
  • Other pigmentation concerns
  • Acne scarring

In some cases, your skin tone or texture may not be suitable for red light collagen therapy. While these cases are rare, the only way to know if you are a candidate for treatment is to set up an appointment at our Rancho Bernardo or Carlsbad office.

You should go into any cosmetic procedures with a good understanding of what can realistically be achieved through that treatment. If you set your expectations too high, you may be disappointed in what would otherwise be considered a successful session. Every procedure has its limits, and it is essential to know what those are.

Preparing for Red Light Collagen Therapy

You will not need to worry about sticking to a lengthy preparation schedule since red light collagen therapy is noninvasive and nonsurgical. We do ask that you avoid excessive sun exposure before and after your procedures since it can cause unnecessary discomfort and negatively impact your results.

Red Light Collagen Therapy Procedure

Red light collagen therapy with the Perfectio X device is one of the most streamlined treatments available on the market. The procedure begins by turning on the device and applying it directly to the targeted area. As it makes contact with your skin, concentrated light will penetrate all three layers of the skin: the epidermis (surface), dermis (middle) and hypodermis (deepest).

The light will trigger the body’s natural healing response, which includes flooding the body with collagen and elastin, two essential protein building blocks that are directly responsible for preventing our skin from sagging. Additionally, your body will also begin to flush new cells to the area, making it rich in oxygen and other nutrients. (This process is strengthened by Perfectio X’s ability to trigger ATP consumption in our bodies, a component that our body uses to accelerate cellular repair.

For best results, we recommend having red light collagen therapy performed three times per week for 30 days. Each treatment session will last about thirty minutes initially. Once that has been completed, we will apply a rejuvenation cream or mask and continue the treatment for another 90 seconds. This helps the product reach deeper into the tissue and work more effectively. This particular light therapy is also very adept at reducing melanin and discoloration concerns in the skin, like age spots and dark spots.

Red Light Collagen Therapy Recovery

One of the best parts about red light collagen therapy at Dermacare is that the technology and approaches we use have no reported side effects after treatment. Your skin may feel a little tight or tender, but your recovery will be virtually zero, and you will not need to take any time away from work, school or any other responsibilities that you have — especially when the actual treatment can take as little as five minutes.

Red Light Collagen Therapy Results

During a study on the device that our office uses, the vast majority of patients were delighted with the results that red light collagen therapy provided. 100% of the study participants agreed that their skin looked younger and healthier. You can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the elasticity, texture and tone of the treated skin. The results will remain as long as you are having follow-up treatment performed.

Why Do We Need Red Light Collagen Therapy?

After the age of 20, our bodies lose 1% of their collagen production every year. When you consider the impact of 10 years of collagen loss, it is not surprising that so many people develop concerns like fine lines or wrinkles by their 30s. While lasers and concentrated lights are an excellent way to treat these conditions, most procedures require close to an hour-long visit. Red light collagen therapy at Dermacare can last only minutes, providing busy adults with a reliable treatment in a fraction of the time.

Can I Combine My Red Light Collagen Therapy with Other Procedures?

Because red light collagen therapy is noninvasive and nonsurgical, you can combine it with a host of other treatments as part of your overall aesthetics package. Let one of our team members know if you are interested in having more than one procedure performed, and we will help you determine the best way to make it happen.

How Much Does Red Light Collagen Therapy Cost?

Red light collagen therapy at Dermacare costs around $300 per session, depending on the amount of correction being made and your unique aesthetic goals. While this is a ball-park estimate, a more precise estimate can be provided during your consultation. If you purchase a pack of five treatments, the cost goes down to $1,350, and a pack of ten will go down even further to $2,400.
