- Over 200 LEDs incorporated into one easy to use device delivering a total of 8W (or 8,000mW).
- Biophotonic LED Light Device has an automatic shut off and delivers safe and effective pulsating light.
Instructions For Use:
- Place device near or in contact with the skin allowing the light energy (photons) to penetrate tissue.
What are the benefits of LED’s?
LED systems offer the ability to treat a larger area of the body at one time. Laser is very pin pointed where LED covers a larger area and the pulsating light is the safest way to receive light therapy.
Basic research has shown that when red (600’snm wavelengths) and near-infrared wavelengths (mostly 800’s nm wavelengths) are applied to cells that are compreomised (hypoxic or low on oxygen), there is improved cellular respiration and function due to an increase in production of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) by the cell’s mitochondria. There is also improved blood circulation near the area treated, due to release of nitric oxide from parts of the mitochondria in the hypoxic cell.
LED’s are commonly used in medical and aesthetic practices for reducing inflammation, skin rejuvenation, enhancement of wound healing, acne therapy, sports injuries, and join pain.
Light induces a complex chain of physiological reactions assisting damaged tissues to accelerate wound healing an dtissue regeneration, increase circulation, reduce acute inflammation, reduce acute and chronic pain and help restore normal cellular function.
Photobiomodulation/Red light is a term used to describe the mechanistic/scientific basis for this photonic specialty and photobiomodulation therapy.
For inflammation, Photobiomodulation/Red Light causes the smaller arteries and lymph vessels of the body (treated area) to increase in size, which is called vasodilation. Vasodilation allows inflammation, swelling, and edema to be cleared away from injury sites more effectively.
Vasodilation in lymph nodes promotes lympahtic drainge, which also aids in the healing process. Basic research has demonstrated that Photobiomodulation / Red Light can decrease the pro-inflammatory cellular response factors and increase the anti-inflammatory response.
