What is LED Light Therapy?
Originally researched and developed by NASA, low level light therapy, also known as photobiostimulation, is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis and has a wide range of beneficial application across many medical fields, including the treatment of skin, muscle, joint and pain conditions.
How does Light Therapy Work?
Our body has the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy, just like plants. Light Therapy works in a similar fashion and emits UV-free, beneficial light energy to the skin. This in turn can help with pain, aging or acne, depending on the wave-length and color.
LED Light Therapy provides compromised cells with energy to regain and restore vitality naturally. Its powerful, deeply penetrating wavelengths are absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria. This process increases the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP)- the fuel that drives all cells. This boost of cellular energy results in a cascade of metabolic events leading to an increase in micro-circulation tissue repair, and a decrease in inflammation and pain.
What does LED Light Therapy Treat?
LED Light Therapy treats a multitude of conditions including wrinkles, acne, Rosacea, inflammation, eczema, psoriasis, and muscle & joint pain. Most clients notice an immediate glow with the increase of circulation, with cumulative results over time. We recommend 3-4 treatments a week, until results are achieved. After which weekly treatments are recommended for maintenance.
Blue Light – penetrates the tissues superficially and kills bacteria making it perfect to treat acne lesions.
Red Light – penetrates the tissues at a deeper level and can help regenerate cellular function.
Infra-red Light – penetrates the tissues at a deeper level and can help reduce inflammation & pain.
