Effective and fuss-free, Lumixa is LED as it ought to be.
Lumixa is an innovative new hyperpulsed light treatment from Italian skin scientists, FB Dermatology. It features a ground-breaking gel that's activated by blue LED light. When the patented gel is excited by an LED machine, it transforms into Fluorescent Light Energy - simultaneously rejuvenating the skin with the entire light spectrum; from blue to green, through yellow and deep down to red.

Who is it suitable for?
Lumixa is suitable for all skin types 1 – 6. Because it’s pain-free, it’s perfect for those more sensitive to pain and intensive treatments. There are currently two Lumixa treatment options. Lumixa can also be combined before or after invasive treatments to calm inflammation.
Lumixa Skin Normaliser is perfect for anyone looking to prevent and combat redness, inflammation and early signs of ageing, with a revitalising effect.
Lumixa Collagen Booster is an anti-ageing treatment to correct and improve skin density, texture, fine lines and pore size.
All Lumixa treatments start with a course of five treatments. Some clients may need more treatments depending on the severity of their skin condition.
Individual ‘top up’ treatments are recommended as part of an ongoing maintenance plan as and when required.
Lumixa is an advanced, non-aggressive treatment. All Lumixa treatments start with a Skin Journey programme of 5 treatments which costs $1045 (or $209 per treatment). Treatments must be performed weekly, with the best results noticeable from 12 weeks. Individually the treatment costs $299.
Immediately after each Lumixa treatment, you can expect to see a temporary ‘bronzing’ of the skin, which some call a ‘Hollywood glow’. In some clients, temporary darkening of freckles, sunspots, and pigmentation is possible. If any of these, including Melasma, are your primary skin concerns, Lumixa may not be the treatment for you. Discuss this and other treatment options with your therapist.
Does it hurt?
No. Lumixa is pain-free, non-invasive, and the gel doesn't absorb into the skin. During the treatment, you may feel tingling and warmth as the gel and light work together. Don’t worry; this is entirely normal.
How long between treatments?
Lumixa is a progressive skin therapy, with a programme of 5 treatments spaced one week apart from each other. Because it’s non-invasive and non-systemic, Lumixa can also be combined with other treatments to improve and enhance overall results.
Lumixa is a ground-breaking new hyperpulsed light treatment that repairs, rebuilds and regenerates the skin at cellular level.

What is Lumixa?
Lumixa is a new treatment that utilises innovative technology called Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). Lumixa treatments are indicated for the prevention and correction of ‘Inflammageing’ and the intrinsic signs of ageing. Lumixa gels are activated with a blue LED Light with wavelengths between 415nm and 465nm. The gel then performs a photoconversion which produces a spectrum of Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). The standard protocol or entire course consists of 1 Lumixa treatment weekly for five weeks. Some clients may require more treatments depending on severity. Choose from Lumixa Skin Normaliser Skin Journey or Lumixa Collagen Booster Skin Journey.

How does Lumixa work?
Lumixa is a Fluorejuvenation treatment capable of stimulating biological processes and the skin’s regeneration mechanisms through “photobiomodulation” It is a “skin gym” treatment that reinforces natural defence mechanisms. It has also shown positive effects on redness control, collagen production and natural glow enhancement.
Is Lumixa painful? Is it safe?
Lumixa is a safe, non-destructive and painless treatment. The gel remains on the skin surface and is not systemically absorbed. Lumixa is non-photo sensitizing, so this treatment is safely performed in the summer months.
What are the side effect and contra indications?
There are very few side effects with Lumixa. Insensitive skin, mild erythema may be observed due to the heat. Darker Fitzpatrick Skin types may experience a mild bronzing/darkening of the skin, which dissipates after the treatment course. Contraindications are not linked to Lumixa per se but to the device being used to activate it. However, we recommend not to use retinol (or vitamin A) during the treatment since it can produce significant sensitivities. Efficacy and safety of Lumixa have not been tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women. Consult a doctor if considering using Lumixa if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant during the treatment or are breastfeeding.
What will my skin look like straight after my treatment?
With no downtime, Lumixa allows you to go back to your daily life straight after the session. Make-up can also be applied to the skin immediately afterwards.
What happens during the treatment?
A gel containing a fluorophore with a specific energy is applied to the skin.
The gel is then activated with a blue LED Light with wavelengths between 415nm and 465 nm.
Once activated, the gel performs a photoconversion which produces a spectrum of Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE).
How long before I see results?
Results vary depending on the treatment protocol and skin condition. Some patients see an improvement in redness after just one single session.
In most cases, significant improvements are noticeable during the last couple of weeks of a five week, standard treatment protocol.
Since Lumixa stimulates the skin’s biological processes, it continues to improve the skin in the weeks following the end of the treatment protocol.
After care instructions
In between treatments, it is essential to use an SPF. We recommend Clear Skincare SPF 30 oil-free Sunscreen.
To avoid irritation or discomfort on your newly resurfaced skin, do not exfoliate or use retinol or AHA products for at least seven days following your peel. Steer clear of the gym and any sort of excessive heat sources like a sauna or hot tub for 24 hours after, and drink plenty of water to protect your skin.
It is essential to use recommended homecare prescribed by your skin therapist to maintain your skin’s health and optimal regeneration.
Since Lumixa is not systemically absorbed, non-photo sensitising with no serious side effects, it can be combined with most homecare products.
We recommend not to use retinol (or vitamin A) during the treatment since it can produce significant sensitivities.
What is the science? How does it differ from LED treatments?
Lumixa offers treatments which utilise innovative technology called Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). FLE works through photobiomodulation. While LED is a continuous type of light, FLE is a hyperpulsed light which facilitates superior cellular interaction. LED light uses the properties of one single colour (wavelength) at a time. FLE covers a very wide spectrum of wavelengths at the same time. Blue from the LED light and green, yellow and red from the FLE generated. FLE interacts with different receptors in the epidermis and dermis
