DermaDoctor PhotoDynamic Therapy

Have you ever heard of intense pulsed light? If not, I will explain. It is something done by a dermatologist or a licensed practitioner, in a medical setting. It uses intense light therapy to blast collagen and elastin into our skin. Collagen and elastin are the two fibers that make our skin soft, smooth and "young". The cost of this type of service is beyond expensive and the treatments are also time consuming. And it is not done in one treatment it usually requires several treatments to achieve the desired look. Also, the other option is an at home red light device which are very costly and require persistent at home usage in your spare time.

Enter.....DermaDoctor PhotoDynamic therapy. It contains the first of its kind patent pending solar powered active ingredient, which in lotion form captures UV light transforming it into visible red light on the skin. (No, your skin won't turn red that's what I was scared of haha)

I noticed when I applied the lotion, which I would recommend doing at least 20 minutes before sun exposure just to make sure you are benefiting as much as possible from the product. And the lotion itself made my skin feel smoother and made my makeup actually go on with more ease.

The great thing about this product is that it is working for you just by you applying it and going about your day as normal. And it will convert the suns harmful rays into an anti-aging arsenal for your skin, all you have to do is wear it. No consultations or Dr. Visits, or waste of your time.

Now at home you can use something just as you do everyday. And it enhances your SPF protection and provides cellular defense. So, with this , you can utilize UV light to enhance your skin. Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve your skins elasticity.

It is essentially taking one of the most damaging elements, the sun, and using it to aide our skin to produce collagen and elastin. And providing it with antioxidants,nutrients and vitamins our skin needs to stay healthy and keep us looking rejuvenated !

This is a breakdown of how it works :


Morinda Citrifolia extract otherwise known as the Noni Fruit contains a special polyphenol (a type of antioxidant) that is designed to capture the sun's rays and converts and emits this energy as a highly focused visible red wavelength, which is equal to the light emitted from a red LED light.

Here are some of the ingredients and a little bit about each of them :

Vitamin D : It contains the sole (non-animal) vitamin D source available. Vitamin D is essential to our skin and coincidentally you find vitamin D in good old fashion sunshine. But as we know it being exposed to the sun for too long of a time period is not good for our skin. Indeed, it is essential so,this is a great ingredient to have in a product.
Tricalcium Phosphate : is an inert calcium particle that helps bind noni fruit polyphenols which allows it to absorb and transmit the red light energy.

Sun-dried Shitake Mushroom Extract : This is a supplement to Vitamin D. By protecting our skin everyday with SPF we are also depriving it of one of the good things that comes from the sun, Vitamin D.
Pomegranate, Ubiquinone, Vitamin E, Cucumber, Green and White Tea Extracts : free radical protecting antioxidants.

In an Independent Clinical Trial - after only 4 weeks of use:
  • 96% of the participants reported their skin appeared smoother
  • 72% of the participants reported their skin appeared more radiant
  • 72% of the participants reported their skin appeared firmer
  • 48% of the participants reported their skin appeared to have less lines
  • 64% of the participants reported their skin appeared to have a more uniformed complexion

To me those are amazing statistics ! And from using it for a number of days I do notice a difference in the texture of my skin. I have only had it about 5 days but I wanted to share with you what a great product it is. And I will certainly keep you updated on my full results in about 4 weeks .
