LED Light Therapy: Too Good To Be True?

June 13, 2016


The desire to look younger seems to be an ever-growing concern as we trample through the years, after many nights of too much fun that inevitably run our body into the ground. But with advancements in cosmetic treatments, even if we were party animals in our younger years, we can still find ways to help reverse the damage.
We’re big fans of non-invasive procedures – the less we have to go under the knife the better…

Cue Healite II and Skin Rejuvenation

Skin Rejuvenation

Although the ageing of our skin is a complex biological process there are two main causes: chronological ageing – the effect of time on our bodies; and photo-ageing – the effect of the sun’s harmful rays.

As we grow older, the amount of collagen, the major supporting protein of the body, diminishes. In addition, the skin becomes less flexible. This means that our skin becomes drier and thinner as the body’s natural regeneration process slows down, and the skin slowly loses its ability to retain moisture.
These effects are further compounded by the harmful UVA and UVB rays in sunlight. These damage the skin by producing enzymes that break down the skin’s supportive structure and so prevent the creation of new collagen.
Successfully restoring the skin overcomes the effects of time and exposure to the sun by stimulating the creation of new collagen. It also aids the detoxification of the skin.
And this is where Healite II plays such a unique and valuable role.
Healite II delivers a totally natural method of light-only skin rejuvenation which uses the body’s own natural processes to help counteract the effects of ageing. Unlike some anti-ageing treatments that work as a result of the body’s response to damage, Healite II stimulates natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.

Because Healite II stimulates cells involved in repair of the skin and increases blood flow, it can be used successfully to enhance and improve other skin treatments.



What is Healite II

HEALITE II is a second-generation Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy system that is now available in Australia and is TGA approved.
Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) with HEALITE II is a non-ablative skin surface treatment system that uses light delivered through light emitting diodes to deliver pure light in precise wavelengths for the treatment of acne, superficial skin lesions, relieving pain, promoting skin rejuvenation and others.
Developed by Dr Glen Calderhead, known as the guru of LED technology, HEALITE II harnesses the properties of light via Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology, properly delivered and concentrated, treating effectively without possibility of physical trauma or thermal damage.
According to Dr Calderhead, one of the key advantages of the HeaLite II is that it has such a wide range of clinical indications. It has been shown to speed up the healing of wounds caused by laser treatment or surgery, and can even reduce the pain, bruising and swelling experienced post-laser treatment. Treatment with the HeaLite II may also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve photo-aged skin and enhance skin tone and texture.

What skin conditions can be treated by Healite II ?

HEALITE II can be used as a standalone therapy or as an adjunctive therapy to a wide variety of treatments, including aesthetic laser and IPL treatments, skin needling, deep peels and pre and post skin surgery. Each wavelength targets various different indications. Patients of all ages and skin types can benefit from the pain free, athermal and easy to apply Healite treatments.

830nm wavelength (Yellow Light)
* Wound Healing and scar reduction
* Pain relief
* Relief of muscle and joint pain
* Skin rejuvenation
* Temporary increase in blood flow to skin
633nm wavelength (Red Light)

How often can I have Healite II treatments ?

Individual Healite II phototherapy treatments are best experienced no more than twice weekly. Results can seen after just 1 treatment with results improving with each additional session thereafter. Starting a course of Healite II treatments with a Microdermabrasion or Peel treatment may be an ideal approach for you.
