Phototherapy Facial and Body Treatment
A facial or body treatment of phototherapy can help to deal with a wide variety of conditions, including those of the skin to provide an anti-ageing and rejuvenating effect.
Blue and infrared phototherapy.
Method of action
Blue light therapy
Blue light can be used to promote wound healing processes and create effective biostimulation on moderate acne and skin ageing, as it determines a local photo-stimulating reaction that produces free radicals which destroy bacteria in the pilosebaceous follicles without damaging healthy surrounding cells.
Infrared light can penetrate even the deep layers of the skin — reaching the muscles, nerves and even the bones to provide improved pain relief.
This type of light is absorbed by the photoreceptors in cells and transformed into thermal energy on the upper layers of the skin, and only a small part is reflected. Pulsed light is more effective than continuous light, as it produces a much higher number of photons. Once absorbed, the light energy kickstarts a series of metabolic events, triggering several natural processes of the body on a cellular level.
Infrared therapy has many roles in the human body — from detoxification and skin purification to improving cardiovascular health, pain relief and lowering blood pressure. It is a safe and effective remedy for pain and inflammation and can be used to treat various health conditions, including back pain, arthritis, diabetic neuropathy, tendonitis, nerve pain like sciatica and sports injuries.
Infrared light can:
- Increase blood flow to the different parts of the body.
- Help oxygen and nutrients to reach the cells, enabling them to function better.
- Trigger the growth and repair of new muscles cells and tissues.
- Reduce pain and inflammation.
