HOW DOES LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) WORK?

The body knows how to heal itself. For this, it requires the correct Building Blocks (food, vitamins & minerals), and Energy. LLLT supplements the body's energy, delivering it directly to the area where there is a deficit due to degeneration, or an increased energy requirement due to an injury.

Poor circulation is a major health issue these days. Plaque and fatty deposits reduce circulation, and are leading factors in the chief causes of death in the Western World. LLLT stimulates the circulation, allowing the blood to carry nutrients to where they are needed, and providing energy so they can be readily used. By varying the precise wavelength and frequency, the optimum depth and type of tissue can be targetted.

IS LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) SAFE?

LLLT in the range of 400-1000nm gives extremely safe and effective therapeutic effect throughout the body. Your body will see a benefit from improved circulation! Your body's cells will benefit from increased energy!

If your skin is ultra sensitive to light (a condition known as Porphyria), or you have been prescribed light-sensitising medications, you must seek your physician's advice before receiving LLLT.

If you suffer from epileptic seizures, cataracts, or an overactive thyroid, we will avoid directing the LLLT over the respective area. We would refrain from placing the LLLT over an active cancer lesion, or directly over the womb if pregnant. Please discuss with your physician and a trained Light Therapist for further information.

HOW DOES LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) REJUVENATE WRINKLES AND SCARS?

Light Therapy causes an increase in natural ATP production. This chemical is naturally produced in the body and helps to rejuvenate cells by ensuring they have enough energy to function optimally. Collagen is released, and elastin stimulated so that skin rejuvenation can take place.

HOW DOES LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) REDUCE ACNE?

Sunlight has long been known to improve acne. It was found that some of the visible light activates a chemical response in acnes, which damages and ultimately kills the bacteria.

3 applications of Blue Light over the space of 1 week has been shown to reduce the bacteria in the pores by 99%. Treatment is accompanied by application of Red Light, which has been shown to improve response rates.

9 weekly sessions are recommended on average and 80% of patients see a vast improvement after 3 months.

Most studies show that this therapy performs as well or better than prescription drugs (such as Isotretinoin and Benzoyl Peroxide), but treatment is far better tolerated and there are no side effects!

Red Light also increases blood flow and cell renewal, repairing acne scar tissue. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated, which is important to your skin's firmness and elasticity.

HOW DOES LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) ASSIST WITH WOUND HEALING?

When your body is injured, energy is required to heal the damage and fight off any infection.

Red LLLT causes an increase in natural ATP production. This is the substance which the body uses for energy, so we are providing extra energy direct to the location where it is most needed.

Blue LLLT quickly kills bacteria, allowing the body to spend its energy on repairs rather than defence.

LLLT releases Nitric Oxide at the targetted site. This signalling molecule causes an enhancement in blood flow, helping the body to continue the repair job, unimpeded.

HOW DOES LOW LEVEL LIGHT THERAPY (LLLT) REDUCE PAIN?

LLLT releases Nitric Oxide at the targetted site. This signalling molecule affects the perception of pain.

At the same time there is an anti-inflammatory effect, which can cause the source of the pain to subside.

LLLT causes an enhancement in blood flow and increase in natural ATP production. This is the substance which the body uses for energy for repairs, so if the pain is caused by injury or gradual degeneration, the body is now in a better position to continue the repair job, unimpeded.
