Light energy is in every single one of the nerves, cells, glands and muscles of our bodies and each emits its own unique frequency vibration.
As the body falls out of balance (influenced by our age, health, environment, lifestyle or other external factors) the frequency vibration within the cells is affected and this disruption can lead to signs of ageing, skin conditions, illness and disease.
‘Phototherapy’ is the common name for the use of light as a treatment therapy. This name is derived from the term for a visible light particle called a Photon.
Each colour wavelength of light has a specific and unique frequency vibration. Specific light wavelengths have a biostimulatory action on the cells and so can be used to effectively normalize cellular imbalances and treat certain skin conditions.
There are now numerous scientific studies on the effect of phototherapy in the healing of acne and other skin conditions.
NASA have recently conducted studies on the use of red LED light for the enhancement of cell growth and found that the application of specific wavelengths of light increased fibroblast activity and enhanced DNA synthesis leading to the production of new collagen.
A follow up study by Wisconsin Medical College demonstrated that the specific wavelengths of red LED light could be used to accelerate wound healing.
The American Academy of Dermatology has reported that blue light can be used to destroy the bacteria that produces the inflammation associated with propionbacterium acnes.
The British Journal of Dermatology has reported that the combination of specific red and blue light wavelengths can successfully treat acne.
A recent study at Hammersmith Hospital demonstrated that the combination of red and blue light phototherapy for the treatment of acne produced quicker results than the application of blue light alone.
