Photomodulation: the complete guide to know everything about this gentle therapye

Do you know of a gentle therapy that can solve your skin problems, rejuvenate it and have an effect on your face and body without aggression? These are all the promises kept by led photomodulation. This method by exposure to cold and pulsed light defies all medical codes. Discover this revolutionary therapy….

Photomodulation: operating principle, applications and benefits

Derived from the laser, photomodulation is a truly unique led therapy. First of all because it solves different problems such as acne or stretch marks, but also has an exceptional anti-aging action. Its undeniable advantage is that it is totally painless and without side effects. Discover the benefits of this method adopted by the stars.

Photobiomodulation, multiple applications for a single therapy

What is really surprising about this therapy is that it acts on multiple levels on the body’s cells. Based on the cross principles of soft laser and chromotherapy, it consists in exposing the area to be treated, face or body or both, to cold and pulsed light under different coloured spectra. Totally painless summer without side effects, LED therapy is highly appreciated in medical treatments, but also aesthetic for its effective actions, but especially without any aggression of the skin.

Thus, photobiomodulation is used to fight skin problems such as acne, soothe psoriasis or eczema or remove stretch marks and brown spots from the dermis. It is therefore widely used in dermatology, but also in alopecia to treat hair loss. It also finds its place in healing and anti-inflammatory actions and is a major asset in relieving osteoarthritis among others.

On the aesthetic side, electro photomodulation is not to be outdone. Thanks to its cell regeneration capacities, it represents a very effective anti-ageing treatment. The skin on the face is tightened, plumped up and wrinkles and fine lines are largely reduced. The body also benefits from the draining and tightening effects of the skin. This led therapy offers a real facelift to your face and body just by exposing yourself to its light. Brown spots are removed, stretch marks are erased and the complexion becomes luminous.

Finally, led photomodulation has other uses that affect brain and systemic functions. Thus, LED therapy has become a valuable ally in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzeimer or Parkinson among others. A regular session reactivates sleeping or injured neurons. In addition to this incredible effect, it has also become the friend of athletes by improving and increasing sporting performance while limiting pain and recovery time.

It is therefore a LED light treatment that has multiple applications and all this, simply because of the light spectrum of different colors. Make way for photons to heal and rejuvenate without suffering!

What exactly is photomodulation?

LED therapy is actually a derivative of the laser. But unlike him, it uses a cold light that does not heat up and does not attack the skin. The lamp emits a pulsed light in micro seconds, which is practically undetectable to the eye. Finally, this light has different colors depending on the effects you want to achieve. The light spectrum useful in both aesthetics and medicine includes a total of 7 colours.

These colours are yellow, blue, red and infrared, green, pink and finally combinations of these colours such as purple. Each has healing properties that will work according to your wishes. Thus, succinctly, blue has antiseptic properties, red and infrared reactivate the heart of cells at different depths of the dermis, green lightens the complexion, pink soothes burns and sunburn and yellow activates blood circulation.

By changing the color of the led, you act differently on your cells and provoke chemical reactions that repair, soothe, relieve, sanitize and regenerate. This photon therapy is based on the plants’ ability to react to light. Phototherapy therefore reaches, thanks to the coloured spectra, a more or less deep distance in the body to stimulate the targeted cells. Collagen, elastin or repair enzymes are then energized and act to modify and repair damaged and damaged cells.

This technique of using cold light for medical and aesthetic purposes is based on very old technologies. This ensures that there are no side effects during and after the session, since the necessary hindsight to measure its effects exists in this way. But in itself, photomodulation has only experienced a significant boom since 2004. It was on this date that a scientific study revealed its incredible performance, particularly in the field of cell rejuvenation. From then on, it became popular, first among the people and then among the general public, which has only grown over the years.

Phototherapy can be practiced at home, in beauty salons and hospitals depending on the cases you wish to treat. At home, it is very practical thanks to handy and high-performance light therapy devices. You schedule your session whenever you want and at times that suit you.

All about phototherapy

A technique based on pulsed and cold light, phototherapy is nevertheless an exciting method in terms of its functioning and applications. You can imagine that it is not every day that the medical profession gets their hands on a non-invasive, non-aggressive and totally painless technique that, in addition, produces results that are simply amazing on receptive subjects. And since we are all receptive to light, to varying degrees, there is no reason to deprive ourselves of it.

While its fairly technical medical applications, such as weightlessness healing, were its main original objective, color photomodulation surprised everyone with its aesthetic, dermatological, systemic and neurological capabilities. Today, it is a painless therapy used in many fields and solves problems of dermis, hair loss, pain, aging, but also brain damage. One may wonder whether all the applications of this extraordinary technique have already been discovered.

Is LED photomodulation really an innovative technique? What are its origins? Can we trust him? What are all the possible applications? All these questions deserve in-depth answers to be discovered on photomodulation. Our experts tell you everything you need to know about LED therapy, a revolution in the medical and aesthetic field.

Use of photomodulation in dermatology

Light acts on the human body, that’s for sure. But it is on the action between dermatology and led that the results are most spectacular because they are visible to the naked eye. This is a testament to the power of phototherapy. Indeed, acne is probably the most convincing example. This outbreak of pimples affects many adolescents and continues into adulthood, causing generalized malaise that can lead to confinement. Traditional methods of action are very invasive and very heavy. Acne photobiomodulation acts in depth and durably without altering the skin. In addition, it can reinforce allopathic treatments already in place such as a peel to add a repairing and purifying action to the dermis.

To learn more about this wonderful light healing tool, our experts invite you to consult our articles dedicated to actions on the health of photobiomodulation, a therapy with multiple perspectives that medical research is gradually discovering.

The different colors of leds for light therapy

Whether you use aesthetic photomodulation or dermatology photobiomodulation, understanding and using LEDs is a priority. Indeed, it is the colours that will trigger the desired action within the cells exposed to phototherapy. It should therefore be noted that there is a panel of 7 LED colours in light therapy. They all have a specific application to meet different medical or aesthetic needs. For example, acne is treated by exposure to blue light to cleanse the skin thanks to its antiseptic effect and then to a red LED to heal and repair the dermis attacked by blackheads.

Similarly, cellulite will melt in front of the yellow LED, just as the pregnancy mask will disappear under the effect of the green light. Stretch marks also do not resist its light spectrum. This unique combination of benefits from each led is designed to meet all your needs. And when you are at home with your LED device, it is really necessary to know the actions of each light on your skin in order to get the most out of it.

Scientific studies on photomodulation led treatments

Treatment led acne, stretch marks or anti-aging, scientists have left nothing to chance and have conducted concrete studies to really measure the impact of photomodulation led on the human body. As mentioned above, the hindsight necessary for the assertion that there are no side effects is present. But as far as the effect itself was concerned, it was necessary to start from scratch to test the different possible applications on a representative sample. And this has been done in different, if not all, areas. Indeed, the first study on the anti-ageing effect is at the origin of the lighting of phototherapy. These results have therefore greatly encouraged researchers to continue their investigations in its other possible applications.

Thus, the effects of LED photomodulation on acne, alopecia and stretch marks have been the subject of extensive studies. All of them had an excellent treatment success rate over a large part of the study population, regardless of skin type. There are therefore no side effects to LED phototherapy, but also no dermal prerequisites to be able to claim it.

How to choose a led photomodulation device?

This is the question to ask when considering light therapy care at home. A first step in responding to your needs is to start with your needs. For what purpose do you want this device? Which area is to be treated? What would you like to see as a result? As you will have understood, part of the answer depends on you. The rest depends on the technical characteristics of the led device. You will find them in the form of a led mask, removable panels or even manual with change of end caps.

There, you will have to judge the practicality of what you are looking for. It is obvious that a manual device will be more manageable, but will also require action from you during the session while the panel device allows you to lie down and relax completely during the treatment. Here again, everything is a matter of taste. Then, it is necessary to be interested in the heart of the LED lamp’s performance and to know the technical details not to be neglected. Power of the leds, ergonomics of the control system or even a number of colours… they have screened everything for you!

How to choose a led photomodulation device?

Choose the led mask, the most famous phototherapy device!

Functional and effective, the LED mask seems to win all the votes when it comes to smoothing, firming or plumping the skin of the face. It is put on the face and is held in place by an elastic band to pass behind the head. For more comfort, it is advisable to choose a model that can be adapted to your face. So remember to look carefully to see if the model of your dreams is fixed or not. In addition, it will cover your entire face and thus obtain a homogeneous effect.

And speaking of homogeneity, it is also strongly recommended to use the neck accessory that goes with the mask. Indeed, the skin of the neck is thin and fragile like that of the face. And a plumped and tense face cannot be supported by a flaccid and wrinkled neck. Also, the neck accessory helps to avoid this sometimes striking contrast. It will also be useful in acne led treatments where pimples can also be found in the neck, upper back and décolleté.

Finally, depending on the use you wish to make of it, you will have to choose between the 3-colour masks where the most common LED shades such as red and blue are present and the 7-colour masks which have an enlarged range of colours and therefore allow a complete facial treatment. Stain removal, scrubbing, smoothing or even reducing wrinkles and fine lines are thus within your reach. All you have to do is select your led device and enjoy its care at home!
