How does LumiBel™ work?

The LumiBel™ system comprises two components: the multi-LED lamp (KT-D™ lamp) and the LumiBel™ gel.

The KT-D™ lamp emits a safe blue light* that photoactivates the LumiBel™ gel.

The LumiBel™ gel is a combination of two gels (a light-trapping chromophore gel and a carrier gel). LumiBel™ converts the light from the KT-D™ lamp into different colour wavelengths that penetrate the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and beautify skin.

Is LumiBel™ safe?

Patients did not report any serious side effects or pain; any mild side effects are generally temporary and will not interrupt your daily routine. Please note that persons taking certain drugs or products known to induce severe photosensitivity reactions, or who have conditions that trigger these same reactions, pregnant or breast-feeding women, or persons with active skin infections, should not be treated with LumiBel™.
