Heal Troubled Skin with Infrared LED Light and Photo-Sequencing Technology
Phototherapy with Infrared LED Light at 830nm has been used to treat damaged skin such as burns, ulcers and surgical wounds for more than 3 decades. Now, the technology is even more advanced with proprietary Photo-sequencing technology (PST) – which uses yellow LED light at 590nm to pre-condition the skin to improve treatment results.
What is LED LLLT therapy?
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is the therapeutic use of incident light to photomodulate cellular function. The effects include improved wound healing, pain relief, improvement of active acne, skin rejuvenation, etc.
HEALITE II harnesses the properties of 830/590, 633 and 415 nm light via Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology at medical-grade concentrations to effectively treat skin without physical trauma or thermal damage.
How does infrared LED light work?
*Infrared LED light at a wavelength of 830nm has been scientifically and clinically shown to shown to selectively and significantly upregulate the action potential of the main skin cells involved in wound healing, including macrophages, neutrophils, mast cells, keratinocytes and fibroblasts. LED Light with 830 nm increases blood flow after a single irradiation, resulting in better skin and tissue flap survival. At a genetic level, 830 nm has been proved to upregulate the genetic mechanisms responsible for osteoblast activation.
Why is Healite infrared LED light unique?
LED Light therapy is only effective at the right therapeutic doses. Healite LED 830/590 ensures maximal efficacy with 1800 LED lights delivering photomodulation energy deep into the skin at up to 100mW/cm2. In addition to Infrared light at 830nm, low level yellow LED light at 590nm wavelength is used to precondition skin at 300 microwatts/cm2. This combination allows Healite to target both epidermal and dermal structures in the skin – such as epidermal basal cells and fibroblasts, to exert powerful, anti-inflammatory effects. Compared with other LED lights, Healite LED 830/590 gives you maximum results and safety.
What is the treatment session like?
Each treatment session is 20 minutes. After cleansing your skin, our therapist will place the LED over your head and turn in on. You will see a yellow light shine in sequence, followed by a gentle heat sensation. The treatment is very comfortable, relaxing, and has no downtime. You can return to work immediately after the session.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments required will depend on your skin condition. For more severe, damaged skin, daily treatments may be required. Once your skin is better, treatments can be more spaced out. During your consult with our doctor, you will be advised more about your treatment regime.
Can I do the treatment alone without other laser treatments?
LLLT with Healite II can be used as a standalone therapy or as an adjunctive therapy with many other treatments. Done alone, Healite LED Infrared/Yellow is very effective to heal skin. It can be done with other LED treatments such as Healite LED Red for skin rejuvenation, or Healite LED Blue to treat acne. The treatment can also be combined with other lasers to improve results. Healite LED Infrared/Yellow is also incorporated into many of our skin programs such as the Skin Rebirth Program and Flawless Skin Program to give you the best results from your treatments.
