LED Phototherapy / MediLUX
At You by Dr Shauna Watts, we are pleased to offer the MediLUX LED phototherapy system. The MediLUX treatment uses highly effective low-level LED light therapy to rejuvenate and heal the skin. It is gentle and suitable for all skin types.
With multiple light wavelengths, the treatment can help heal scars and bruising, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and manage skin conditions such as redness, acne, and pigmentation. This is all done quickly and effectively with absolutely no downtime.
How Does LED Light Therapy Work?
LED phototherapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that works to repair and revive the skin. It transmits a beam of light energy into the skin in order to reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen, and encourage tissue healing. Different wavelengths of light work to address different skin concerns, based on the patient and their personal skin needs. MediLUX treats a wide range of skin issues, with five different wavelength settings:
- Blue: Clears skin congestion and reduces acne-causing bacteria
- Red: Boosts blood flow to promote cell turnover and a healthy, youthful complexion
- Green: Helps reduce redness and irritation, as well as uneven skin tone
- Yellow: Promotes wound repair and helps reduce rosacea
- Near-Infrared: Increases white blood cell production to repair and regenerate the skin
The MediLUX does this by stimulating the body’s own healing response, with no damage to the surrounding tissue. This involves provoking the skin into producing healthy collagen and elastin tissue within the skin. The skin therefore appears smoother and more youthful, with better tone and texture.

- Acne and acne scarring
- Lines, wrinkles, and ageing skin
- Redness and irritation
- Poor overall skin tone or texture
Speak to Dr Watts during a private consultation to find out how you can benefit from MediLUX LED phototherapy treatments.
Dr Watts will develop a treatment plan that targets your skin concerns and helps you achieve your goals. During a treatment session, your eyes will be protected from the laser light. Dr Watts will customise the treatment, setting the MediLUX device to a certain wavelength in order to help you achieve the results you desire. The LED panel will then be placed over the treatment area, usually either the face, neck, décolleté, back, or hands.
The effective but gentle LED light will penetrate the skin and stimulate healthy blood flow and collagen production. You may feel some warmth, but the process is not painful. The treatment session will take around 10 to 20 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Results
Although there is no downtime required after LED phototherapy, you will still need to care for your skin as it processes the effects of your treatment. You might have some redness for a few hours after the procedure, and you will be instructed to avoid sun exposure and maintain good skincare.
Your skin’s quality will improve after two weeks, with continued results for several months afterwards. As a result, you can then enjoy a smoother, brighter complexion. You can expect to see results after your first LED light therapy treatment, with more noticeable overall results after further treatment sessions.
