LED Photomodulation Therapy

Acne, medically known as Acne Vulgaris, is a skin disease that involves the oil glands at the base of hair follicles. It commonly occurs during puberty when the sebaceous (oil) glands come to life – the glands are stimulated by male hormones produced by the adrenal glands of both males and females.

Acne is not dangerous, but can leave skin scars. Human skin has pores (tiny holes) which connect to oil glands located under the skin. The glands are connected to the pores via follicles – small canals. These glands produce Sebum, an oily liquid. The sebum carries dead skin cells through the follicles to the surface of the skin. A small hair grows through the follicle out of the skin. Pimples grow when these follicles get blocked, resulting in an accumulation of oil under the skin.

Cells in the human body use light and convert it into ATP, this is the fuel that powers life on a cellular level. Plant cells have a similar process called photosynthesis that develops chlorophyll, their fuel for life.
When light therapy is used, this triggers cellular activity thus producing ATP and once produced, the tissue uses it to carry out healing and rejuvenation in the treated area.
This technology has also been used by doctors to regenerate muscle and heal wounds. It is non-invasive and does not harm the skin, and has been shown to be safe. It increases the production of collagen and elastin in your skin and stimulates the regeneration of connective tissue, resulting in a reduction of acne and acne scarring. There is also no possibility of physical trauma or thermal damage from using this treatment and is suitable for patients of all ages.

Each session is approximately 45 minutes in duration. While lying comfortably on a treatment bed, padding is strapped to specific target zones of the body. The signals from the Ion Magnum machine are transferred to the face through the padding. The system has 16 different channels which enable all parts of the face and neck to be treated at the same time.

Light therapy uses LED, Light Emitting Diode technology with a low level power output which is safe and will not damage the skin. This is a NON-INVASIVE procedure, unlike laser and Intense Pulse Light which can have adverse effect on the skin and be painful.

There are many benefits and results that can come from light therapy: increased collagen and elastin production, regeneration of the connective tissue, erasure of sunspots, improved lymphatic system and circulation. It improves or erases fine lines and wrinkles, it lifts and tones and improves the overall complexion of the client. It heals blemishes, pimples, acne and other such skin problems. It kills the bacteria present in the skin and ensures that it does not take place again.
In addition, the client suffers no thermal damage, discomfort, down time, scarring or dis-coloration and most importantly no negative side effects.
The LED form of light treatments can also provide relief from body pain and stress
