Low-Level Light Therapy
What is Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive light source treatment that promotes the healing and repair of tissues. This is achieved by the cells absorbing the particles of light and transforming the energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The increased levels of ATP lead to biochemical and cellular changes which promote:
Accelerated tissue repair
Reduction of pain and inflammation
Benefit skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, or ageing (fine lines and wrinkles)
Research also indicates that hair loss can benefit from regular use of LLLT!
The device I use is a Celluma Pro and is FDA approved and CE certified which means that it is cleared for medical use for the above conditions. It has three settings, Blue, Red and Near Infrared, each emitting a different wavelength and the correct one will be chosen for you.
For more information on how it works please go to the blog
Acupuncture and LLLT
LLLT can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or alongside acupuncture to reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and accelerate healing. It can also be used alongside cosmetic acupuncture to reduce the signs of ageing and to benefit the skin.
If you would like more information, please give me a call and we can discuss your individual needs. In the coming months I will write some blogs on conditions that can benefit from the addition of low-level light therapy to the treatment.
