What is HealthLight™?
HealthLight is a photo-modulated (pulsed, light emitting diodes) device also known as low-level light therapy (LLLT).
The infrared and visible red LEDs are the heart of the HealthLight Therapy systems, providing gentle but powerful non-coherent light.
What is LED Light Therapy?
After decades of research found that certain wavelengths of light within the red, blue and infrared bands were very beneficial to living tissue.
Light therapy is currently being used in clinical and home settings around the world. Light therapy has been in use by the medical profession to increase circulation and reduce pain for more than 20 years.
Its growing acceptance has become more abundant as research continues into the many ways light therapy can help.
Can you explain LED lights and color?
LED light therapy describes the color in terms of the wavelength of the LED's. The wavelength is measured in nanometers (nm). The human eye sees wavelengths as colors. Infrared is outside of the visible spectrum and cannot be seen by the human eye.
Why do you use light you cannot see?
Light wavelength is measured in nanometers (nm). The human eye only sees the colors of the rainbow. Infrared is outside of the visible spectrum and cannot be seen by the human eye.
Our red light treats surface conditions. Infrared light penetrates deeper into human tissue. The two wavelengths working in combination cause a cascade of beneficial, healing effects.
Can anyone use LED Light Therapy?
Yes. There are no restrictions on who can use light therapy. It has been successfully used in clinics and homes for two decades.
What does it feel like when using HealthLight?
HealthLight creates a comforting, warm feeling with the pads.
The HealthLight pads operate at body temperature, causing no discomfort.
How does HealthLight™ increase circulation?
The infrared light energy releases nitric oxide from hemoglobin and endothelial cells. Nitric oxide, “the molecule of life,” is a signaling molecule that relaxes smooth muscle cells found in the arteries, veins, and lymph vessels.
When these muscles relax, the vessels dilate, thus allowing increased circulation. Visualize the difference in diameter between a straw and a hose – that’s an example of vasodilation.
How often can the lights be used?
You can use the lights up to 3 times a day in the same area, but you should allow a few hours between treatments if you are treating the same location to let the area rest.
Can I be harmed by using HealthLight™ Infrared Light therapy systems?
Who uses HealthLight™?
Almost everyone can use HealthLight devices to increase circulation and reduce pain as needed. HealthLight is used both in clinics and by patients at home.
Some of the many professionals using HealthLight include:
What is the difference between HealthLight and other products available online?
The differences are significant. Many online products lack the clinical strength to achieve the results needed. Industry-leading HealthLight devices have these advantages:
Patient health is too important to risk with anything but the most proven quality products. HealthLight has been a leader in the field for 15 years. It is one of the few manufacturers to produce products only in the USA.
What is the difference between an LED and a low level laser?
Both contain diodes (a small light with two wires connected to a filament inside) that can be made of the same materials, usually silicon with specific minerals added in specific amounts to produce different colors.
In lasers, the diode is mounted in a well-shaped area (like a small tin can with one end removed) that is lined with reflective materials that sends, generally, only one wavelength of light.
The result is a narrow beam of light that is concentrated into a beam, referred to as “coherent” light. However, when using low power levels (soft lasers) the light energy does not remain coherent and scatters when it hits the skin. This is given as the explanation why LED’s and low level laser devices have similar healing effects.
Most low level (or cold) lasers have a total output of about 100 mw. The HealthLight 3 pad system output is over 17,000 mw. More power generally increases beneficial nitric oxide release and shortens treatment times. Lasers must be used under medical supervision in a clinic.
LED Infrared Light therapy can be used as unattended therapy, in a clinic or a home.
