Non-Invasive LED & Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) System
Dynamic phototherapy is ideal for treating tired skin. This therapy uses LED (light emitting diodes) which stimulates the activity of skin cells which in turn stimulate the synthesis of collagen; and, secondly, inhibits the production of the enzymes that break down collagen and hyaluronic acid; thus reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin elasticity.
LED –technology was first developed by NASA. It works to promote wound healing and regeneration (replacement with young healthy cells). Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) Technology also referred to as “cold” lasers because they don’t release heat energy, has been well documented for over three decades. NASA’s Space Shuttle program utilized LLLT on-board to stimulate healing and wellness. Light Therapy provides many therapeutic benefits as it:
- Significantly Increases Blood Circulation and Increases Lymphatic Drainage
- Increases production of collagen, elastin & fibroblast activity
- Stimulates the cellular metabolism, healing process
- Stimulates tissue repair
- Reduces inflammation after surgical procedures & after non-surgical aesthetic procedures
- Relieves acute and chronic pain
- Promotes relaxation (it de-stresses as it increases production of endorphins)
In the aesthetic clinical environment, LLLT Therapy combined with LED is highly effective in treating face and body. It has produced accelerated visible results in:
- Acne and blemishes
- Hair thinning/Loss (see below)
- Minimizes fine line and wrinkles
- Lifts and tightens loose saggy aged and sun-damaged skin
- Improves skin texture
- Reduces cellulite
- Reduces scars
- Reduces the appearance of stretch marks
- Reduces redness after IPL or Laser treatments
How does Low Level Laser Therapy and LED work?
LLLT Therapy combined with LED works by sending light deep into the tissues of the body. Once delivered, the light energy (photons) is absorbed by the cells of the mitochondria (cells that function in energy production). This jump starts the mitochondria to increase the production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
ATP is the substance in all living cells that provides energy for many metabolic processes; it is the ‘energy currency of life’. Since greater amounts of energy (ATP) are produced, it is available to be used by the cells of the body to function more efficiently. The absorption of these specific wavelengths of light increases the cellular breakdown of damaged tissue and stimulates regeneration of tissue.
It is a relaxing and painless treatment that can also help boost low moods. Red light LED stimulates the fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin which plump up aging skin and give you a firmer, more youthful look. Blue light LED works by killing the bacteria, Propionibacterium acnes, that is responsible for acne.
How long are the treatments?
Treatment time and treatment frequency will vary depending upon the condition being treated.
LOW LEVEL LASER and LED
Grow new, thicker, fuller healthier-looking hair
Hair thinning or hair loss may occur as a natural part of aging, due to medications, poor diet (lack of important nutrients in the diet), heredity, male pattern baldness, hormonal changes associated with pregnancy, menopausal changes, emotional stress, illness, injury, or disease.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is an exciting treatment option for hair thinning and hair loss. It has been shown to help restore hair growth for those patients with genetic-based hair thinning and hair loss, like male or female pattern baldness. It is a “cold light laser” that is safe with no associated side effects.
Combining low level laser therapy with LED lights is an innovative approach to hair rejuvenation. Studies have shown that in the right type of light, hair could actually regrow; hair responds well to visible red laser light in the wavelength of 650-670 nanometers. It works to grow new healthy hair and slow down or reverse hair thinning and hair loss by increasing blood flow to the area of treatment and stimulating and energizing the hair follicles. Patients report that hair looks fuller and healthier.
It works extremely well in combination with mesotherapy for hair loss. Mesotherapy works to strengthen and energize the hair follicles through use of vitamins and minerals applied to the scalp.
