Low-level light laser therapy is best used to treat the skin & connective tissue. This is based on its limited ability to penetrate tissue unlike far infrared heat therapy which penetrates much deeper into the tissue. Phototherapy provides our cells with the energy needed to regenerate & repair them making it potentially effective for any issue located in the skin and connective tissue.
Phototherapy is based on the principle of delivering the light/ photon energy into cells within our body. When the light particles touch the skin the body’s cells absorb the energy. Our cells use this energy to rejuvenate and repair themselves. Phototherapy works similar to how plants absorb light via photosynthesis, using that energy to fuel the organism’s activities. Phototherapy works by the same overall principle, as our cells absorb are able to absorb certain light energies providing fuel for specific functions.
Photon Light Therapy can dramatically revitalize your skin without any downtime or discomfort. It provides noticeable results, often in only a couple of treatments, without the high cost and downtime of other more expensive treatment options.
Photon Light Treatments are simple and easy. The amount of time you spend at your skin care specialist may vary based on your individual skin care needs. You can expect an individual treatment to take up to 15-30 minutes. It’s so simple and fast that many clients have treatments during a lunch break or on a quick stop on the way to or from work. However, the relaxing, euphoric effect usually lasts throughout the day!
A 20 minute session designed to re-hydrate the face, and increase collagen and elastin formation resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in decreasing flaccidity, lifting sagging tissues and restoring skin tone and texture resulting in an overall improvement. Ten treatments are recommended. Maintenance once a month or as needed can prolong a youthful appearance.
A 20 minute session to stimulate the reduction of fibrotic tissue and the replacement of normal tissue. Clients usually notice softening of scar tissue. They also notice flattening and widening of the scar. This is a normal sequence in scar reduction. With several more sessions the flat, wide scar will become thinner and remain flat. Some scars may appear to be resistant to this program (hypertrophic and/or keloid).
A 20 minute session that focuses on skin retraction by increasing circulation and bringing nutrition to damaged tissue. Treatments should be applied twice per week and may require between 10-15 treatments.
A 20 minute session intended to improve discoloration caused by sun damage, chemical build-up, and chemical reactions from chemical peels, and excessive use of skin damaging products. This process normalizes the melanin within the skin. The amount of treatments needed vary depending on the amount of damage to the skin, the thickness of the skin and the age of the client.
This concentrated 20 minute session is designed to increase blood circulation and bring more nutrients to the skin’s surface, which helps to keep the skin from breaking down. It also helps to normalize dry or oily skin, achieving an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.
An effective 30 minute session designed to repair damaged skin and significantly reduce P. acnes, the bacteria responsible for causing inflammatory acne vulgaris. In the initial 15 minutes of treatment, blue light enters the sebaceous glands and singlet oxygen is created. Singlet oxygen then in turn kills the bacteria. Next, the client is exposed to 15 minutes of red light. This acne treatment aids in the healing process of the skin and prevents infection and scarring from occurring.
640nm wavelength – penetrates 1-6mm into skin
The Anti- aging Light. The red light combats fine lines and wrinkles. It has anti- inflammatory functions that help with increasing collagen and elastin production for a smoother, younger looking skin. Red LED light can also aid with treating abrasions or light sun burns. It helps to make sure that they recover as rapidly as possible.
423nm wavelength – penetrates 1mm into skin
The Anti- bacterial Light. The blue light eliminates the acne causing bacteria, also known as. P bacteria, beneath the skin without damaging the skin tissue. With continuous use, signs of acne and inflammation can significantly reduce. This is also recommended to use for decreasing face oiliness by lowering excess sebum production.
532nm wavelength – penetrates 0.5-2mm into skin
The Redness Reducer. The yellow light is primarily used to relieve redness from inflammation sunburn and rosacea.
583nm wavelength – penetrates 1-2mm into skin
The Skin Balancer. The green light mainly increases melanin and create an even skin tone and texture.. It can help with reducing redness due to rosacea and aids with balancing, calming and neutralizing the skin. It also helps with reducing freckles, sun damage, age spots as well as reduce existing pigmentation.
