Watch light work its magic with Lumixa
Lumixa is a topical gel by biotech company FB Dermatology. Utilising innovative technology, Lumixa gel is activated with blue LED light. The gel performs a photoconversion – a chemical change in the skin cells effected by light. This produces Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). This non-invasive, no downtime treatment is the key to reducing the signs of inflammageing skin and correcting intrinsic signs of ageing.
LED together with FLE – Lumixa accelerates your LED that one step further, providing even better results. LED delivers a blue light and FLE generates green, yellow and red that interacts with different parts of the epidermis and dermis.
Blue light – Reaches 1mm depth
Green light- Reaches 0.5mm – 2mm depth
Yellow light – Reaches 1mm-2mm depth
Red light – Reaches 1mm-6mm depth
How does it work
Lumixa Skin Normaliser targets the signs and symptoms of Inflammageing – where inflammation occurs, accelerating the skin’s ageing process. The inflammatory response can cause damage to skin tissue leading to skin dehydration, dehydration, skin reactivity, and dull complexion. Skin Normaliser is effective in modulating skin reactivity and stress, preventing/combating inflammation, and generates a revitalising and energising effect.
Lumixa Collagen Booster targets the signs and symptoms of Chronoageing: It is responsible for loss of volume, alteration of the skin texture and dry skin. Lumixa Collagen Booster can be used as a corrective treatment, improves skin density and provides a plumping effect.
What is FLE (Fluoroscent Light Energy)?
FLE is a hyper-pulsed light, targeting multiple layers of the skin at once. FLE stimulates biological processes in the skin to activate the skin’s own regeneration methods. It’s amazing for controlling and minimising redness, producing collagen, and enhancing your skin’s glow, bringing dull skin back to life!
Lumixa gel contains a patented fluorophore – a chemical compound excited by light. It has a specific energy profile that improves Inflammageing and its symptoms. It’s effective at settling skin reactivity and stress, preventing and combatting inflammation, and regenerating and revitalising the skin.

The term “Inflammageing” refers to a continuous, low-level and asymptomatic inflammatory process associated with ageing. This inflammatory response can gradually cause damage to skin tissues through dehydration, skin matrix weakening, collagen and elastin degradation, skin barrier impairment, and solar lentigo.
Chronoageing is intrinsic ageing, it is mainly affected by things inside the body that you can’t see such as hormone levels and the makeup of your cells and proteins. Such ageing process includes diminished or defective synthesis of collagen and elastin in the dermis resulting in skin’s loss of volume, alteration of the skin texture and dry skin.
Lumixa gel contains a fluorophore with a specific energy profile. The gel is applied to the face and activated underneath blue LED light. This performs a photoconversion which produces a spectrum of Fluorescent Light Energy (FLE). It works to control redness, produce fresh collagen production and enhance the skin’s natural glow.
LED uses a single continuous light wavelength. However, Lumixa’s FLE technology covers a range of wavelengths simultaneously. While LED is amazing for the skin, Lumixa works together with the LED light, delivering greater results.
Lumixa Skin Normaliser is effective against Inflammageing and its effects which are; dehydration, skin reactivity, dull complexion, etc. It is suitable for all skin types and can be used at any age to combat the first signs of skin ageing thanks to its preventive and corrective action. It can also be used to counteract free radicals and help the skin recover after summer.
Lumixa Collagen Booster is effective against the signs and symptoms of chronoageing: fine lines, open pores, loss of density, etc. It can be used as a corrective treatment, improves skin density and provides a plumping effect.
During your Lumixa treatment, you’ll wear block-out and protect your eyes from the LED light panels. Your SILK technician will apply the gel to your face and then place the LED light over your face. It’s normal for your face to feel tingling and warmth during your treatment.
Lumixa is totally safe! It’s a non-destructive, pain-free treatment. The gel remains on the skin surface and is not absorbed into the skin. Lumixa is non-photosensitising, so the treatment can be used all-year-round.
With no downtime, Lumixa allows you to go back to your daily life straight after the session. Make-up and active products can also be applied to the skin immediately afterwards.
Lumixa treatment involves 5 treatments over 5 weeks. Results vary depending on the treatment protocol and skin condition. Some clients see an improvement in redness after just one single session. However, as Lumixa stimulates the skin’s biological processes, you’ll notice your best results after 12 weeks.
There are very few side effects with Lumixa. In sensitive skin, mild erythema may be observed due to the heat. Clients may experience bronzing of the skin and darkening of freckles and sunspots, which dissipates after the treatment course.
Efficacy and safety of Lumixa is not suitable on pregnant or breastfeeding women. We recommend you consult a doctor if you are considering using Lumixa, if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant during the treatment or are breastfeeding.
