Pre-Post Care: Unprotected sun exposure or use of tanning beds, creams in areas to be treated. We might request rescheduling and or no treatment as you are taking risk of injury, Pregnancy, Menstrual dysfunction, use of mechanical epilation less than 4-6 weeks prior to treatment for patients seeking hair removal, Allergies, History of Seizures, Medications, History of keloid and hypertrophic scar formation. Active infections/immunosuppression. Open lesion, Herpes 1 or 2 within treatment area, Tretinoin (Retin A or Renova), Oral isotretinoin (Accutane) within the preceding six months. (Dr. Note will be required before Tx is started) No sun-tanning or self-tanners & weeks prior to treatment Includes spray tans, tanning lotions, tanning beds, sun exposure, etc. Avoid treatments that may irritate the skin for 4 weeks prior to treatment (waxing, depilatories, etc.) Notify clinic with any changes to your health history or medications since your last appointment). History of herpes or cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment if treating in the area that breakouts occur.
Post Laser Tx Only-
A mild sunburn like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and or redness may accompany this, but usually resolves in 2-3 days. Apply Aloe Vera and or ice-cold packs to the treatment area for 10-15min every hour for the next four hours, or as needed. An oral, non-steroidal anti- inflammatory, such as Acetaminophen may be taken to reduce discomfort. In some cases, prolonged redness or blistering may occur. Aloe Vera may be applied and SPF 45/50 to affected area twice a day until healed. Bathe or showers as usual. Treated areas may be temperature sensitive. Cool showers or baths will offer relief. Avoid aggressive scrubbing and use of exfoliates. Scrub brushes and loofa sponges until the treatment area has returned to its pre-treatment condition. Until redness has completely resolved, avoid all of the following, no harsh cosmetics to treated area, swimming especially in pools with chemicals, such as chlorine. Hot tubs/Jacuzzis, Activities that Cause excessive perspiration.
The benefits of red-light therapy for diverse conditions Just some of the scientifically proven results of red-light therapy investigated thus far include:
Near-infrared light reduces overall inflammation in the body by decreasing the presence of inflammatory markers. This reduction can help case the symptoms associated with joint pain, sore muscles, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.
In one Clinical study, neuropathic pain caused by a spinal cord injury was dramatically reduced by the application of red-light treatment. Scientists conducting the study referred to it as “as an exciting prospect with significant clinical relevance.” Near-infrared light wavelengths reduce overall pain by easing joint stiffness and soreness, diminishing inflammation, easing muscles spasms and enhancing blood flow.
Reduced recovery times after training and injury
For high-performance athletes (and those who train like them) red light therapy can help accelerate muscle repair following fatigue and injury. Mitochondria within cells are particularly responsive to red light therapy, and muscles cells are exceptionally rich in mitochondria. Red light therapy may additionally stimulate stem cells, further assisting in muscle recovery.
Improved fertility and increased testosterone levels
Around the age of 30. male testosterone levels naturally start to decrease. Men hoping to achieve a natural boost to their sex drives, sexual satisfaction, fertility, and physical performance can reap benefits from red light therapy. Red and near-infrared wavelengths can stimulate photoreceptor proteins in the testes causing higher testosterone production. Other studies have theorized that low-level light therapy may affect the pineal gland in the brain, which bears a significant impact on reproduction.
Healthier, plumper-looking skin due to increased collagen production
Red light therapy can dramatically transform the skin. Red light wavelengths in particular target the mitochondrial chromophores within skin cells, generating production of collagen proteins. Collagen stimulation yields more holistic and enduring benefits than simply resurfacing the outer layers of the skin.
Stem cells may also be activated. increasing tissue repair. The result is accelerated healing and wound repair. improved appearance in hypertrophic scars, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and improved skin texture. Participants in one study experienced a clinically assessed improvement in skin complexion and collagen density.
The stimulation of hair growth
Alopecia, or hair loss, is a common disorder affecting 50% of males over the age of 40 and 75% of females over 65. There are few approved, effective treatments available. However, studies performed on men and women have shown that red light therapy can stimulate hair growth.
Led light wavelengths are believed to stimulate epidermal stem cells in the hair follicle, shifting the follicle into the anagen phase (this is the active growth stage). Research performed on mice with chemotherapy-induced alopecia showed similar responsiveness–the treatment encouraged hair growth.
Improved circulation (improved blood flow)
In many studies, red light therapy has been clinically proven to increase the diameter of blood vessels and to improve circulation. What’s more, red light therapy also protects red blood cells against oxidative stress and limits platelet loss during surgical procedures.
Although every precaution will be taken to ensure your safety and wellbeing before, during and after your LED treatment, please be aware of the following information and possible risks.
