InLight Wellness LED light therapy systems are photo-modulated devices that provide low-level light therapy (LLLT), with multiple wavelengths emitted simultaneously.
This polychromatic light therapy (PLT) is composed of infrared, visible red and blue LED lights providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light delivered to your cells.
These devices use a carefully timed proprietary sequence of settings, known as pulses, to create an environment in which change may occur more rapidly, and consistently than conventional lasers.
With the direction of your clinician, proper placement, frequency and application of the InLight pad system can assist your healing and regeneration at the speed of light. Standard settings are for pain & inflammation, neuropathy & re-balancing the nervous system for stress.
LIGHT THERAPY HAS BEEN SHOWN TO:
Increase circulation: Red, blue and infrared light enters through the skin and stimulates a photorecptor in your blood called hemoglobin. When this is stimulated, the hemoglobin releases nitrogen oxide a natural substance that causes vasodilation. When the blood vessels are expanded, blood, oxygen and nutrients can penetrate into areas that were previously compromised. red light also promotes angiogenesis, the building of new blood vessels. With this new improved circulation, the body can deliver nutrients and remove toxins for optimal healing.
Stimulate the production of collagen: Blue light and infrared light are responsible for stimulation of fibroblasts to produce collagen just under the surface of the skin. Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Collagen is the essential protein used to repair damaged tissue and to replace old tissue. It is the substance that holds cells together and has a high degree of elasticity. By increasing collagen production less scar tissue is formed at the damaged site and aged skin rejuvenates.
Stimulate the release of adenosine triphosphate (ATP): ATP is the major carrier of energy to all cells. Consider ATP your cellular energy currency. Increases in ATP allow cells to accept nutrients faster and get rid of waste products faster by increasing the energy level in the cell. Red and infrared light specifically increases the levels of ATP in each cell it touches.
Increase lymphatic system activity: Edema, which is the swelling of the tissues due to extracellular fluid accumulation. The first is a liquid part, which can be evacuated by the blood system, and the second is comprised of the proteins that have to be evacuated by the lymphatic system. All three lights (red, blue and infrared) increase lymphatic stimulation and flow. This means that both parts of edema (liquid and protein) can be evacuated at a much faster rate to relieve swelling.
Reduce the excitability of nervous tissue: The photons of light enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions, like calcium and potassium among others, to go to the area being treated. These natural ions in the body assist in firing the nerves, thereby relieving pain. Red light is responsible for increasing nerve function and nerve cell action potential which assists healing of neuropathy.
Increase phagocytosis: Red and infrared light stimulate phagocytosis which is the process of scavenging for an ingesting dead or degenerated cells by white blood cells for the purpose of clean up. This is an important part of the infection fighting process. Destruction of the infection and clean up must occur before the healing process can take place.
Stimulate tissue granulation and connective tissue projections: Red, blue and infrared lights stimulate part of the healing process of woulds, ulcers or inflamed tissues by stimulating granulation.
Stimulate acetylcholine release: Red light helps increase the relaxation response (parasympathetic) via the release of Acetylcholine. Acetylcholine causes cardiac inhibition, vasodilation, cognative, gastrointestinal peristalsis and other parasympathetic effects.
