LED Phototherapy is the application of beneficial light wave lengths into the skin’s deepest layers to energise our cells with proven rejuvenating results.

The application of light to the skin prompts a natural response similar to that of plant photo-synthesis through a process known as photobiomodulation. Skin cells that are energised function better and can regenerate up to 200% faster which in turn leads to a more youthful, healthy and radiant complexion.

We all know that on-going exposure to UV light is very damaging but controlled levels of Red, Blue, Green and Near Infrared light are clinically proven to be beneficial.

The latest generation LED technology ensures a safe and targeted delivery of light at the optimum intensity for maximum skin enhancing results.

Our LED system is heat free, chemical free and does not harm the skin. It has an excellent safety record and can benefit all skin types with no downtime required.

Yes, blue LED light has an anti-bacterial action, making it a very effective treatment for acne.

Light at this wavelength can treat spots without causing any further irritation, calm the skin and improve the clearness, reducing redness.

While there's no cure for psoriasis, red LED light therapy has been clinically proven to ease the symptoms, including reducing itchiness, flaking and swelling.

Red LED light therapy has been proven to treat the signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, skin discolouration and age spots.

Red light stimulates skin cells known as fibroblasts. These help to make collagen, which is part of the skin's natural recovery process and promotes and smoother complexion.

We recommend using light therapy as part of your overall Dermalogica skin care regime, and we can recommend the correct products and treatments to complement your light therapy treatment.

Although you will see visible results after just one treatment, with this treatment the results are cumulative and improve over a course of LED sessions.

For best results, we recommend an 8 week programme of 12 treatments to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The visible improvements to your skin's health and appearance will last up to 12 weeks following a programme of treatments. We recommend regular booster treatments after this to maintain the results.

GLOWWA Hair Food is designed for anyone looking to achieve longer, healthier hair, improved condition and shine.

It is an entirely natural product, but we recommend speaking to your doctor before adding any supplements to your routine.

You should also check with your health care professional if you are taking regular medication plus we recommend waiting until after pregnancy and breastfeeding before adding GLOWWA into your routine.

Many customers have found that results start to become visible after the first 12 weeks of use, with optimum results being noticed from long term consistent use. However everyone is unique and some may notice improvements much sooner than this or it may take a little longer.

Hair Food can be taken all year round to support your overall haircare & wellness routine.

No, hair food is manufactured with your optimum health and wellbeing in mind and it does not contain any of these ingredients listed.

You should always consult your GP before adding any supplements into your routine.

Please check with a healthcare professional if you are taking medication or under the supervision of a doctor for health reasons before use.

We recommend waiting until after pregnancy and breastfeeding before adding GLOWWA into your routine.

Their bonded hair extensions can be easily and safely blended into your natural hair using tiny bonds to attach the extensions.  The bonding material is non-allergenic and contains natural products including pine kernel and orange peel extracts.  The bonds are virtually invisible and leave no trace or residue.

The hair extensions fitted at our Cardiff salons can be worn for at least six months depending on the type chosen.   We will provide you with full after-care information to help you maintain and keep them in the best possible condition.

Your hair will need to be a minimum of 4 inches long to achieve a natural-looking long-hair look with extensions.

As a rough idea, this means your hair needs to be just about long enough to gather into a hair tie before we can fit your extensions.

It's normal to wonder how hair extensions will feel in your hair if you've never had them before, and we know that some guests are concerned that they will be uncomfortable.

At your initial consultation we will assess your hair and recommend the type of extensions that will work best for you.   We offer a choice of methods and hair so that we can get the best fit for all of our guests.  We always ensure that your hair extensions will feel comfortable to wear and should not feel heavy.
