Bondholder Neo Elegance has launched Lumineo, a treatment device that combats the effects of blue light on the skin.
Farrah Allarakha, Director of Neo Elegance, said, "Tech plays such a huge part in our lives, from catching up with friends on a smartphone to using desktops at work. But the blue light emitted from these gadgets is causing damage to our skin."
Blue light or high energy visible (HEV) is emitted from many electronic gadgets, such as phones, laptops, and tablets. Studies show that HEV penetrates the skin more deeply than UV rays and accelerates the signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, dulls skin, and sagging, as it causes damage to the skin’s collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid supplies. On top of causing signs of ageing, HEV can also affect the melanin production,
which can create hyperpigmentation and discolouration in the skin.
The innovative Lumineo device, incorporates 6 LED wavelengths that
penetrate the skin, to accelerate wound healing and boost collagen production. In addition, the red light therapy from the Lumineo directly
works to reduce and prevent damage caused by HEV light.
Farrah added, "Our Derby team have worked hard over the past year to
develop a device that will not only help professionals in the aesthetic and
beauty industry but also has implications in the healthcare industry. We’re
excited to be developing and launching such exciting devices from Derby!"
