Can LED Light Therapy Help Me?
How Does Light Therapy Work?
THE EFFECTS OF LIGHT THERAPY ON ACNE 415nm (non-UV) blue light spectrum has demonstrated the ability to target and destroy bacteria that reside on or in the dermis layers of skin. It has been long documented that UV light spectrums kill acne but UV light has negative effects to human skin. By using the 415nm Blue light spectrum, we achieve the same anti-bacterial effects of the UV light spectrum without the damaging effects. By incorporating our Deep Penetrating Light Technology into this product, our light penetrates deeper into the skin structure to treat bacteria that reside in the skin, at a depth that traditional acne ointments can’t reach.
LIGHT SPECTRUMS THAT FIGHT WRINKLES 880nm Infrared and 660nm deep red lights in combination deliver a soothing, regeneration effect to aging skin. These light spectrums penetrate deep into the dermis layers, stimulating fibroblasts that, in turn, generate the production of collagen and elastin. This results in the general reduction and reversal of fine lines and wrinkles, encouraging firm, plump skin texture. Our Anti-Aging treatment devices also provide a soothing effect to the external layers of skin, enhancing natural coloration while reducing the signs of aging due to blemishes, sun and age spots.
PAIN RELIEF WITH LIGHT THERAPY 880nm Infrared (invisible to the human eye) light spectrum range has demonstrated the highest level of natural healing effects within the body’s cellular structure. Combined with 660nm red light, These spectrums of light, combined with our technology, reaches deep into joints and tissues to generate increased circulation, oxygenation, cellular repair and reproduction. This results in the removal of toxins, unwanted cellular matter and a general temporary relief of associated effects like muscle/joint aches, arthritis/tendonitis pain, muscle spasms, etc. Additional benefits include an increased rate of injury recovery and wound healing as well.

Improvement of pain and disability in elderly patients with degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee treated with narrow-band light therapy.
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of low-power light therapy on pain and disability in elderly patients with degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee.
DESIGN: Partially double-blinded, fully randomized trial comparing red, infrared, and placebo light emitters.
PATIENTS: Fifty patients with degenerative osteoarthritis of both knees were randomly assigned to three treatment groups: red (15 patients), infrared (18 patients), and placebo (17 patients). Infrared and placebo emitters were double-blinded.
INTERVENTIONS: Self-applied treatment to both sides of the knee for 15 minutes twice a day for 10 days.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire, Present Pain Intensity, and Visual Analogue Scale for pain and Disability Index Questionnaire for disability were used. We evaluated pain and disability before and on the tenth day of therapy. The period from the end of the treatment until the patient's request to be retreated was summed up 1 year after the trial.
RESULTS: Pain and disability before treatment did not show statistically significant differences between the three groups. Pain reduction in the red and infrared groups after the treatment was more than 50% in all scoring methods (P less than 0.05). There was no significant pain improvement in the placebo group. We observed significant functional improvement in red- and infrared-treated groups (p less than 0.05), but not in the placebo group. The period from the end of treatment until the patients required treatment was longer for red and infrared groups than for the placebo group (4.2 +/- 3.0, 6.1 +/- 3.2, and 0.53 +/- 0.62 months, for red, infrared, and placebo, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: Low-power light therapy is effective in relieving pain and disability in degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee.
