Discover how LED Light Therapy restores Brilliance and Vitality within the skin

Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is the therapeutic use of light to modulate cellular function, encourage wound healing, rejuvenate skin and improve congestion

LED Light Therapy combines 830, 590, and 633nm wavelengths, and wavelengths separately. The properly, concentrated delivery of wavelengths treats the skin effectively without causing harm or thermal damage to skin cells

A beam of light is made up of many photons. Photons are particles that carry light through space. Phototherapy uses photons of light to alter biological activity

There are four unique interactions that low-level light therapy makes with the skin—reflection, transmission, scatter, and absorption

Light is reflected from the Stratum Corneum. Light transmits through the Epidermis and Dermis. Light is scattered in the Dermis enables the involvement of a large volume of tissue from a comparatively small light source. Light is absorbed by the cell to exchange energy

Sunlight has a lot of different wavelengths. Low-Level Light Therapy is using beneficial wavelengths to activate cells. Phototherapy delivers a cascade of biochemical reactions to the target tissue and cellular functions to stimulate collagen and repair, improve laxity and reduce pigmentation

Key factors for an effective LED treatment

  • Specific wavelength from the light spectrum
  • The intensity of photons being delivered to the skin
  • Length of treatment
  • The distance of the light source from the skin. Further away from the skin will deliver lower intensity of photons

Infrared Light Therapy helps repair and rejuvenate keratinocytes, immune cells, and fibroblasts as well as capillary walls and lymph vessels. It does this by transferring the energy from a specific wavelength of light, at controlled intensity, to our epidermis and dermis

Wavelength recommendations for LED treatment

590nm

Absorbs less than 500 micrometers in the skin and targets keratinocytes in the basal layer and Merkel cells in the Epidermis

630nm

Absorbs 12mm deep and targets fibroblasts, endotheliocytes, mast cells, blood vessel walls, and porphyrins

830nm

Absorbs 8cm deep into the skin and targets keratinocytes, mast cells, neutrophils, macrophages, fibroblasts, blood vessel walls, lymphatics, and sensory nerves

Contoured Target

Healite activates rows of 590nm LEDs. This cycle is repeated 12 times, lasting 1 minute. This is known as pre-light that preconditions the skin’s epidermal receptors. The epidermal cells start to produce peptides that precondition the dermal target cells

After 1 minute of 590nm, only 830nm LEDs are activated, and 590nm LEDs continue cycling to provide a visual indication of 830nm LED emission. Having both wavelengths increases intensity and directionality

Blue Light VS Red Light

Porphyrins produced by P. acnes can be activated or energised by blue light to destroy the target cells in which the active bacteria can be found

Athermal and atraumatic energy exchange from photons in red light to target cells or organelles, producing cells with a higher energy level than before

In the majority of acne cases, P. acnes is the main target, so 415nm is the best wavelength. For a Fitzpatrick III or higher Blue light must be followed up 830nm within 24 hours to reduce ashy appearance to the skin

For inflammatory, immunological and hormonal targets Photon absorption therapy with the 830nm wavelengths is the best approach to accelerate healing and optimal cell function
