What is it?
Low-level light therapy (LLLT) with LEDs is the therapeutic use of incident light to photomodulate cellular function to improve and quicken wound healing, treat acne, rejuvenate the appearance of skin, stimulate hair growth, improve local circulation, perform 5-ALA photodynamic therapy (PDT), and relieve pain and stiffness in muscles and joints. Cells absorb light energy without incidence of damage from heat or physical trauma; various cellular functions are upregulated enhancing cell repair and function as well as stimulating proliferation.
HOW IT WORKS
HEALITE II harnesses the properties of 415, 633 and 830 nm light via light emitting diode (LED) technology, properly delivered and concentrated, treating effectively without possibility of physical trauma or thermal damage. Acne blue light therapy can be used as a standalone therapy or as an enhancement of recovery with nearly any medical procedure. It helps treat both active acne and stubborn acne scars.
WHAT TO EXPECT
A typical session will begin with your practitioner ensuring your skin is clean and cleansed, and finding a comfortable position for you. After turning on the Healite Blue for approximately 10 minutes, you will feel a slight warming sensation similar to that of sunshine on your skin. There is no downtime or aftercare associated with the treatment and patients can go right back to their daily activities.
