The Benefits of Light Therapy
Laser light is highly dense and concentrate, designed to target small areas at the time. It penetrates deep layer of skin. Light therapy targets much wider area then lasers, and while it does penetrate into the tissue, it does not heat or inflame them as laser therapy can.
Light therapy has been shown to be quite effective on most people, who use it regularly and as directed. However, like most treatments, it won’t necessarily work the same for everyone. It may sound too good to be true, but as of now, there has not been evidence showing adverse effects or any side effects.
According to Dr. Enwemeka, one of the foremost authorities in the use of lasers and monochromatic light for therapeutic purpose, red and near infrared light, emitted by laser and monochromatic LEDs, promotes collagen polymerization and alignment. In pioneering studies, he and his team recently demonstrated-for the first time-that certain wavelengths of LED blue light kill the deadly Methycillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA); suggesting that blue light is a viable alternative to antibiotics, to which some bacteria have become resistant.
Laser Light vs. Light therapy
Pulse Light Therapy
Our body’s ability to repair itself slows as we age. Our cell tissues respond positively to certain wavelengths in the red and near infrared region. FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that uses pulse light to stimulate and regenerate skin cells and promote healing using the wavelengths to which cell tissue respond positively. Pulse Light Therapy is gentle, painless, safe and effective and offers no tissue damage and no discomfort.
